Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress Designer Revealed
Did the princess-to-be stay true to her American roots and go with a U.S. brand?
Stella McCartney is the lucky royal wedding dress designer!
Leading British bridal designer Caroline Castigliano revealed the big news to the publication, saying “Stella is such a perfect fit for Meghan, she uses organic fabrics and her ethos is the same as Meghan. Her style is very underplayed, her dresses are very clean in style, very much Meghan — and they are friends.”
She added, “Even though Stella is not a traditional wedding designer, she’s a designer. She’s done a lot of evening gowns — and bridal just takes things on a bit further. I don’t believe that Stella will have any trouble making a magnificent gown for Meghan.”
While the British brand may not be known for their royal gowns, Caroline said don’t expect a non-traditional dress to come down the aisle.
“I believe it will be a very straight, fitted dress, with a big nine-foot train that comes off the dress from the side to create the drama, and lace trickling down the top of it,” she dished.
Though fans have been drawing comparisons between Kate Middleton and Meghan for months, their wedding gowns will not be comparable, at least for the most part.
“I’m sure it will be very different [from] Kate Middleton’s, although it will share some of the same aspects — sleeves, shoulders covered, no cleavage showing, and it’s highly likely that she’ll have her back covered too,” the bridal designer admitted. “But I think the fabric she uses will be miles away from Kate’s, I think she’ll want to make her own mark.”
Meghan may even pay homage to her future husband’s late mother, Princess Diana.
“I see Meghan in a beautiful, soft delicate tiara from the Diana collection,” Caroline said. “Harry has always made it clear that he wants his mother to be part of the day.”
