Bailey’s dress was crafted out of a billowing rose pink hand-draped silk chiffon with dazzling embroidery details and angular cutouts just below the bodice. The garment was layered underneath a matching cape.

Bailey accessorized with silver studs and an elegant choker that matched the embroidery on her dress. She braided back her hair, keeping some of her front-facing strands out to frame her face.
