Turns out the bride was cool with it.
Kendall Jenner caused a lot of hoopla when she wore a slinky black dress to her friend’s wedding in November 2021. Many fans online said they thought the dress was too sexy for a formal affair, and Jenner received a lot of criticism for her outfit choice. Now, she’s finally speaking out about the infamous dress.
Jenner and Lauren Perez have been friend’s for years, and you’ve probably seen one of their super chic selfies at one point or another. Of course, Jenner made the trip to Perez’s wedding ceremony in Miami Beach along with a gaggle of other famous pals in November. What she probably didn’t expect? The backlash she would get for wearing a sexy black dress with cutouts across the front.
After photos were posted from the wedding, the shade came rolling in. And it only accelerated on New Year’s Eve, when Perez shared throwback images from her big day. One fan went as far to comment, "Inappropriate outfit at a wedding @kendalljenner, I'm embarrassed for you. #cringe.” Immediately, Perez was sure to hype her friend up and made it clear there was no bad blood over the dress. "LOOKED STUNNING AND I LOVED IT!" Perez wrote in a reply to one fan.
As it turns out, Jenner even asked for her friend’s approval before rocking the sexy number. "Obvi, asked for your approval in advance, too," Jenner responded to Perez's comment. "We love a beach wedding."
It makes sense Jenner would want to point out it was a beach wedding. Weddings on the beach are generally much more casual and don’t require the same kind of formality as weddings held elsewhere. Plus, Jenner was hardly the only one in a skin-baring ensemble. Celebs like Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber were also in attendance.
The KarJenners are notorious for breaking the rules (especially when it comes to fashion), and the Perez wedding was no different.
