She opted for a bateau neck, Givenchy-designed number. Might seem like an unusual pick being that Givenchy is a French fashion house. But the designer, Claire Waught Keller, is a British-born, working-mother of three. She also became the first female artistic director of the luxury brand.
“It is truly an honor to have been given the opportunity to closely collaborate with Meghan Markle on such a remarkable occasion,” Keller said in a statement. “As a British designer at a Parisian Haute Couture house, and on behalf of all us at Givenchy who have been able to experience such an extraordinary process of creativity, I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished and grateful to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and Kensington Palace for allowing us to be part of this historical chapter.” She added, “It has been an immensely rewarding experience to get to know Meghan on a personal level, one I will forever carry with me.”
In addition, Meghan has 53 flowers representing the 53 commonwealth countries embroidered into her veil, representing the couple’s very inclusive, global view. And her tiara was loaned from the Queen herself. The brooch on it was originally designed for Queen Mary in 1893 and it is gorgeous!
So what did you think of Meghan’s look?
UPDATE: She just outdid her first dress with the second one that she wore to the evening soiree at Frogmore House. I am obsessed with this halter neck (one of my fave silhouettes) gown designed by Stella McCartney. It’s chic, sexy, and modern and a breath of fresh air in this royal world. She accessorized with mesh Aquazzura pumps with baby blue soles. I am LOVING look number 2. How about you?
