Singer Solange Knowles had to wear a "backup dress" to her wedding after discovering her first-choice gown was stained.

The 29-year-old exchanged vows with music video director Alan Ferguson in November, 2014 wearing a stunning white Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown, but in a new interview with, she admits it wasn't what she had initially intended to wear.

"Humberto literally put that dress together for me in two months, and made a backup dress in case something got messed up," she explained.

"What’s funny is that he made them in two different fabrics - one a little bit structured, and the other more fluid - and I ended up wearing the backup dress; they were the exact same silhouette. I had to get it hemmed by the tailor and he ironed it and it put a little bit of a stain on it. Humberto was like, 'See, that’s why I made the backup dress!'"

"When I first started dating my husband, I wore so much colour and print, and whenever I would wear black, he would be like, 'Oh, my God, you look so sexy!' Now I have learned to understand the elegance and the sexiness of black." Source: © Cover Media
