First, the engagement; next, the date (ICYMI: May 19); now, THE DRESS! Just like any celebrity wedding, especially a royal wedding, those of us in the bridal fashion world have our very own “lottery picks” for the dress the princess-to-be will wear.
Meghan has been giving subtle hints as to what her dress may look like, and has even winked an eye at her designer of choice. Here’s what we know so far:
Meghan’s dress will be a reflection of her California relaxed-style combined with the elegance of the Royal Family
Carolyn Bessette’s 1996 Narcisco Rodriguez wedding dress is her favorite
She suggests her dress will be “classic and simple with a modern twist...whimsical or subtly romantic”
Misha Nonoo, and Christos Costarellos are designers at the top of her list
She has always been a fan of Elie Saab, J. Mendel, and Delphine Manivet
Catherine Walker and Amanda Wakeley (Princess Diana’s favorite designers), are in consideration
Jenny Packham (Kate Middleton’s favorite designer), is in consideration
She will be advised by her longtime stylist Jessica Mulroney
Joe Zee (a longtime friend) has his bets on Stella McCartney
Based on this, we’ve compiled a collection of 10 Dresses We’d Love to See Meghan Markle Wear at her Royal Wedding!
