When Nikola Peltz said yes to Brooklyn Beckhamin April, she did so while wearing a Valentino Haute Couture gown. The fact that Nicola, 27, didn’t wear a dress designed by Brooklyn’s mother Victoria Beckhamgave rise to rumors of a possible scandal between her and 48-year-old Victoria. “Well, I was planning on wearing Victoria’s wedding dress,” Nicola said GRACE USA when we were discussing the alleged feud, “and I was really so excited to be able to wear a design created by my future mother-in-law. I thought it was so beautiful and such a beautiful story.
However, this story was not told due to scheduling conflicts, not an alleged discrepancy. Nicola explained that her close stylist friend Leslie Fremardand her mother Claudia, helped design the dress. “I thought, ‘Oh, this is going to be so much fun. One of my best friends and my mother. We got in touch to start designing the dress and then a few days went by and I didn’t hear back,” she said GRACE USA. “Victoria called my mother and said that her studio could not do it. So I talked to my mom and Leslie and I was like, “Well, unfortunately, that can’t happen, so what’s the next step?” I’ve been a fan of Valentino and their fashion for so long. I was really lucky to be able to travel to [the atelier] to try on the dress. That really happened.”
“When I read things that say [things like] I never planned to wear [Victoria Beckham] dress or things like that, it really hurts my feelings,” Nicola added. “I try not to let it go, but it’s just not the truth. It’s just a bit of a bummer when you’re like, ‘Oh, people think that,’ but it’s just not true.”
While talking to GRACE USA, Nicole criticized how the modern media landscape breeds these rumours. “It’s a shame when there’s no more love, especially on the internet,” she said. “I don’t understand all the hating on other people’s Instagrams, but I guess everyone has their own. I think it’s really important to surround yourself with really good people. I feel really lucky to have a good support system.”
Brooklyn, 23, and Nicola addressed the alleged feud earlier in the year. “I was going to do it and I really wanted to [wear a design by Victoria], and then a few months later she realized her atelier couldn’t do it, so then I had to choose another dress,” Nicola said in an interview in August. “She didn’t say you couldn’t wear it; I didn’t say I didn’t want to wear it. This is where it started and then they ran away with it.
