Meghan Markle Chooses Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy for Her Wedding Dress

We finally have the answer we’ve all been waiting for: Meghan Markle chose a dress by Clare Waight Keller for her wedding with Prince Harry. After getting a glimpse of the wide neckline, long-sleeved dress while on her way to the chapel in a vintage Rolls Royce, Markle finally showed off the beautiful dress by the British designer as she stepped out of the car and walked into St. George’s chapel in Windsor Castle. It was a modern and unexpected choice by Markle, as Keller, Givenchy’s first female artistic director, was never floated around as a rumored choice. (Almost every other British designer was tied to the job!) Without a trace of lace or embellishment, the dress is the definition of elegant minimalism, allowing the ivory satin fabric and the bride’s figure to shine without much distraction. It was a gorgeous and very appropriate choice for Markle—after all, she’s already walked down the aisle once—and one that will certainly go down in the fashion history books.

As for her tiara, Markle wore the Filigree tiara, which once belonged to Queen Mary. Made in 1932, the bandeau tiara was made from a brooch from dating back from 1893, and was lent to Markle from Queen Elizabeth II. A perfect fit for the new Duchess of Sussex, indeed.
