It was a purple reign at Monica’s buzzed about wedding to NBA star Shannon Brown over the weekend. The R&B star asked guests to wear the royal hue for her blue and purple themed wedding in downtown L.A. While A-Listers like Monica’s cousin Ludacris and Kandi of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” wore the color, Monica walked down the aisle in a custom couture gown.

She selected French fashion designer Stephane Rolland, who studied at the prestigious ‘Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in Paris before joining Balenciaga. He rose quickly through the ranks there and became Creative Director of menswear within a year. By the age of 24 he launched his eponymous clothing line.

He has became a favorite of globetrotting celebs like Monica, who will soon reveal her wedding gown photos.
