Meghan Markle Weds Prince Harry In Givenchy

The moment we’ve been waiting for has finally arrived.

Meghan Markle – Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex – wore Givenchy, designed by Clare Waight Keller, as she wed Prince Harry in Windsor today (May 19)

I was immediately swept away by the simplicity of it all. I’m sure many expected some Hollywood glitz, but it was a refined, elegant take for a modern bride.

Her veil was infinitely longer than her hemline, which many believe was a nod to Princess Diana’s epic train.

The dress epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the ironic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship.

True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist. The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three quarter sleeves adds a note of refined modernity.

Her something borrowed was the Queen Mary’s filigree Tiara which accessorized her veil.

Meghan expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony, so Clare designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition.

The veil is five meters long and made from silk title with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.

Amal Clooney In Stella McCartney – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Amal and George Clooney brought Hollywood regality to Winsdor Castle for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle today (May 19).

Amal made me swoon wearing a bespoke Stella McCartney honey yellow midi dress with side drape detail, styled with a Stephen Jones head dress, TALA bespoke clutch and Aquazzara gold pumps.

I absolutely love Amal’s style as she not afraid to dress, or overdress, for the occasion because she dressing to match the powerful confident woman that she is.

It may not be the best dress at this event, but she was the best dressed, if you catch my drift.

George was clad in Giorgio Armani.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Alexander McQueen – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is the day I discovered a new found respected for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

I have been very vocal in sharing my frustrations at the royal recycler, but if ever there was a day when the focus shouldn’t have been on her, it was today; and she acknowledged that by repeating her Alexander McQueen ivory coatdress.

This will be the third (as far as I’m aware) outing of this look, as she wore it to Princess Charlotte’s Christening and The Passchendaele Commemorations.

I love how the yellow floral detail in her Philip Treacy hat gives this look a new lease of life, with Jimmy Choo heels completed the look.

UPDATE: So, it has been confirmed that this is a new dress, in a slightly different colour. Which is a bit of a head scratcher considering the identical design.

Countess Karen Spencer In Pamella Roland- Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

Charles Spencer, Lady Diana’s brother, was joined by his wife, Countess Karen Spencer for the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle today (May 19).

This might not be a shared feeling, but Countess Spencer was one of my favourites at this event. She was absolutely resplendent in a custom Pamella Roland violet-hued capelet dress.

Yes, it’s not a summery colourful look, and it’s not adorned with florals, but if this was a movie, she would be Maleficent, The Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil or Ursula, to Meghan’s Disney princess.

There is so much mystery and suspense surrounding in this look, that I am hypnotically intrigued and drawn to it like a moth to a flame.

Sarah Rafferty In Lanvin – Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

‘Suits’ actress Sarah Rafferty joined co-stars Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht and Abigail Spencer for the royal wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle held at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle today (May 19) in Windsor, England.

Like Gina, I’m obsessed with Sarah’s wardrobe on ‘Suits’. I was actually looking forward to Sarah’s outfit the most at this event.

Perhaps the image in my head was too far reaching, because I felt a bit deflated when I saw the actress in this navy Lanvin Fall 2018 dress.

The style is effortless chic, and detailing is breath-taking, but like Victoria Beckham, I just can’t do such a sombre colour for a summer wedding.

I just can’t.
