Zoë Kravitz is keeping it casual-chic for her pre-wedding festivities!

On Friday, the Big Little Lies actress, 30, and her fiancé Karl Glusman were captured looking happier than ever as they walked hand-in-hand into their wedding rehearsal dinner at Restaurant Lapérouse in Paris.

For the occasion, Zoë put her own spin on a bridal look and opted for custom Danielle Frankel white bike shorts and a matching white silk bra. Over the comfortable set, the actress wore a hand-crocheted pearl cocktail net dress and completed the look with a pair of white flats.

Frankel, a CFDA Fashion Fund finalist told BAZAAR Bride that she actually designed the look with Kravitz in mind six months earlier, and due to the intense heat wave in Europe right now, ended up switching out the tailored pants for a pair of bike shorts.

As for Glusman, 31, he rocked a navy suit with a white button-down shirt and black tie. The Nocturnal Animals actor also wore a pair of brown dress shoes for the celebratory evening.

The wedding will take place this weekend in France, where Glusman planned to propose. But things didn’t go as intended due to their hectic schedules, and he ended up popping the question in their living room.

“I was in sweatpants,” Zoë told Rolling Stone in October when she confirmed their engagement. “I think I was a little drunk. I could feel his heart beating so fast — I was like, ‘Baby, are you okay?’ I was actually worried about him!”

“I love that it wasn’t this elaborate plan in Paris,” she added. “It was at home, in sweatpants.”

The pair met in 2016 and made their relationship public in October of that year when they cozied up at a Kings of Leon concert in New York City.

But the actress didn’t particularly have her sights set on marriage when a friend introduced her to Glusman.

“I love that it wasn’t on an app and that it wasn’t on a movie set,” she told British Vogue in their July cover story. “My friend knew that I wanted to meet someone — not even to get serious, I think just to get laid, to be completely honest with you — and he brought Karl. I instantly felt something.”
