Simone Biles says ‘yes to the dress(es)’ ahead of wedding to Jonathan Owens



Simone Biles says ‘yes to the dress(es)’ ahead of wedding to Jonathan Owens

Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is ready to walk down the aisle.

The 24-year-old athlete, who’s engaged to Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens, revealed on Instagram Saturday that she said yes to not one, but two wedding dresses from Galia Lahav.

The Israeli bridal designer posted a few behind-the-scenes shots of Biles in her shop wearing several shimmering styles — “not the chosen ones, but a sneak peek,” the caption read.

On her Instagram Story, the Olympian revealed that she ended up choosing the first dress she tried on, with her second being “about 8 in.”

Biles is in good company with her wedding dress designer pick; Beyoncé chose a $10,300 Lahav design for her 2018 vow renewal with Jay-Z, while Paris Hilton donned an off-the-shoulder corseted creation from the brand as one of her six nuptial outfit changes.

“Selling Sunset” stars Christine Quinn and Heather Rae Young both also chose Galia Lahav gowns on their big days, as did Kesha Ward when she wed 2 Chainz in 2018.

Biles’ picks are sure to pair well with her stunning engagement ring from Houston jeweler Zo Frost, which was designed with an oval-cut 3-carat diamond “handpicked by Jonathan,” as Frost exclusively told Page Six Style in February.

Biles and Owens “clicked” early in their relationship and made things Instagram-official in August 2020. They’ve been inseparable ever since, with the gymnast supporting the football star at his and practices.

According to her Instagram Stories, they’re getting married in 2023 and breaking ground on their house soon.

Biles shared on Instagram that the day after she met Owens, she told her best friend she was going to marry him. While they haven’t decided on a honeymoon destination yet, she’s always wanted to go to Bora Bora.

The athletic couple announced their engagement on Instagram in February 2022, with Biles writing, “I ’t wait to spend forever & ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”

Biles is sure to have a star-studded ceremony; she’s exchanged tweets with Taylor Swift and counts Kim Kardashian and Zac Efron as celebrity fans. Even more stars supported her when she decided to focus on her mental health during the last Olympic Games.  

Judging by her 2021 Met Gala gown, her wedding dress will be a real showstopper. Designed by Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk of Area, Biles’ Met dress included an 88-pound skirt covered in Swarovski crystals.

That will certainly be hard to beat on Biles’ big day, but she is famous for astonishing feats.
