Actress Danielle Brooks tied the knot in a stunning ceremony in Miami over the weekend, and we wanted to shed light on the fabulous stylist who helped design her gorgeous gowns. Kelly Augustine has worked with Brooks, styling her for many jaw-dropping red carpet moments, but her selection of wedding dresses left us speechless.
According to Vogue, Brooks and Augustine worked with Christian Siriano, a longtime supporter of the Orange Is The New Black actress, to help create the vision for the perfect custom three-in-one dress for her big day. She also tapped Black British designer Alonuko to design a masterpiece in which to walk down the aisle.
"It was also important to me to highlight a Black designer,” Danielle says. “I feel like when it comes to the wedding process, Black creatives aren’t highlighted enough. Alonuko gave me the dress of my dreams. She flew all the way from London to make sure it arrived," she told Vogue.
Brooks thanked her stylist for assisting her throughout the day via Instagram Stories. Her caption read: "Shoutout to my beautiful stylist. I am grateful for our friendship that is forming organically! You know right when to step in, and I thank you for that." How sweet!
Kelly Augustine gifted her with a pair of Chanel earrings the morning of the wedding that paired perfectly with her dresses, and her shoes were by Nina.
