Nicola Peltz stuns in a plunging halterneck dress with husband Brooklyn Beckham at W Magazine Party
Nicola Peltz stunned in a plunging halterneck dress as she joined husband Brooklyn Beckham W Magazine’s Annual Best Performances Party at Chateau Marmont.
The actress, 28, and aspiring chef, 23, stepped out to the Los Angeles event on Friday, after it was revealed that her dad has filed a £132,000 lawsuit against his daughters wedding planners.
The couple brushed off the recent drama and posed for photos at the glitzy bash, with Nicola wearing a sleek chocolate brown ruched gown.
The stylish number nipped in at her waist before falling into a straight skirt to her knee, as she layered a pair of black opaque tights underneath.
Nicola completed her look with a towering pair of platform heels and styled her hair into beachy waves.

Brooklyn opted for a black suit and trousers with an open white shirt and a pair of patent brogues.
Also in attendance at the party was Elvis star Austin Butler and his girlfriend Kaia Gerber as well as Kate Hudson and Cara Delevingne.
It comes after the full drama behind Brooklyn and Nicola’s wedding has been laid bare in a shocking 188-page lawsuit filed in Florida.
The £3 million celebrity-packed ‘dream wedding’ which united a billionaire’s daughter with the son of a sporting icon, appeared flawless in the glossy pages of Vogue magazine.
But behind the scenes, Brooklyn’s wedding to heiress Nicola, was allegedly so chaotic that even the bride’s father called it a ‘s*** show’.
Wedding planners Nicole Braghin and Arianna Grijalba were left ‘devastated’ earlier this month when billionaire businessman Nelson Peltz launched a lawsuit demanding his £132,000 deposit back.
Mr Peltz, 80, claims the pair were fired just weeks before the three-day wedding extravaganza at the £76 million family mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, last April because of alleged ‘mistakes’.
But last week, Ms Braghin and Ms Grijalba hit back calling Mr Peltz a ‘bully billionaire’ and filed a counterclaim in a Miami court for breach of contract and ‘interference’ with a business deal.

They are also suing bride Nicola, her mother Claudia, and wedding designer Rishi Patel for damages of at least £41,000 plus costs, which could run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The women’s company, Plan Design Events, was hired in February 2022, just six weeks before the lavish wedding.
More than 500 guests attended, including TV chef Gordon Ramsay, Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria, Victoria’s fellow Spice Girls Mel B and Mel C and David Beckham’s former Manchester United teammate Phil Neville.
The planners agreed to a fee of £264,000, with Mr Peltz paying a deposit of half that amount.

They were taking over from Preston Bailey – an icon in the industry who previously planned Catherine Zeta-Jones’ wedding to Michael Douglas. He said he left by mutual agreement after a year’s work because his schedule was ‘overcommitted’.
But the planners who replaced him claim things were so chaotic – with multiple guest lists and a bride allegedly ‘too busy’ to speak on the phone – that things went downhill quickly.
The court documents contain hundreds of WhatsApp chat messages texts and emails – summarised below – which show guest lists were incomplete, travel arrangements had not been made and even the flowers and cake still needed to be sorted out. Hair and make-up artists and photographers and videographers had also not been confirmed.

And when the planners came up with an idea for a wedding band Nicole branded them ‘cheesy’ and only wanted the lead singer.
Ms Braghin and Ms Grijalba say they worked 17-hour days to try to cater to their clients’ demands.
And while there had already been reports of a fall-out between Nicola and her future mother-in-law because the bride chose to wear a Valentino couture gown rather than a dress from Victoria’s label (a feud Nicola later denied), it was clear, the lawsuit says, that the Peltz’s did not want their new in-laws to be aware of the last-minute glitches.

‘Both Claudia and Nicola had insisted that Victoria Beckham could not know about any internal mistakes regarding the ongoing planning of her son’s wedding, including any errors with the guest list’, the court filing states.
A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘This lawsuit epitomises the world of the uber-wealthy. These event planners came into a difficult situation, just six weeks before a wedding that was going to get worldwide attention, and put their hearts and souls into it.
‘Nothing ever seemed to be good enough. This shines a light into how the other half live – and it’s not always a pretty picture.’
A spokesman for Mr Peltz said last night that the planners’ complaint ‘is replete with inaccuracies and their claims have no merit’.
