A fairy tale wedding would not be complete without two dream dresses
A fairy tale wedding would not be complete without two dream dresses. And Meghan Markle definitely got the memo.
Meghan, 36, married Prince Harry, 33, in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19 in a gorgeous custom Givenchy design by the label’s British Artistic Director, Clare Waight Keller, that was fit for an elegant princess.
Her next dress, however, was definitely fit for a party. To cap off their magical wedding day, the royal couple made their way to the Frogmore House in Windsor (in a silver blue Jaguar), where Prince Charles hosted an intimate soirée for 200 of the couple’s closest friends and family members. As Harry and Meghan made their glamorous exit from Windsor Castle, Meghan debuted her second look: a custom silk Stella McCartney evening dress in “lily white” featuring a high halter neck and sexy open back.
Meghan added custom satin Aquazurra shoes featuring nude mesh detailing and baby blue-painted soles.
She also changed up her hairstyle — and hair stylist — turning to George Northwood to create her effortless updo, after go-to Hollywood stylist Serge Normant created her bridal hair moment for the ceremony.
For his part, Prince Harry looked dapper as ever in a classic tuxedo.
Meghan once said that Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s bridal look was “everything goals” and she appears to have taken notes from the late star with her own elegant and effortless bridal style.
Kate Middleton also pulled an outfit change for her royal nuptials to Prince William in 2011. For her and Prince William’s reception at Buckingham Palace, Kate slipped into another dress designed by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton: a white satin strapless evening gown with a circle skirt and diamante detailing around the waist.
She also took off her tiara that was on loan from the Queen and let her hair completely down, sporting a signature Kate blowout. Middleton topped the look with a simple white shrug, warming her up in the breezy 60-degree weather.
