Meghan Markle's Givenchy wedding dress made jaws drop at the royal wedding ceremony. The gown featuring clean lines and a bateau neckline was simply stunning, and of course, Prince Harry agreed, telling his partner that she looked amazing at the altar. But before our heart rates had even gotten a chance to return to normal after seeing such an awe-inspiring wedding dress, the Duchess of Sussex debuted her second wedding dress of the day—a stunning Stella McCartney number. Meghan Markle wore the equally gorgeous dress to the evening royal reception hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.
Seen as the newlyweds climbed into a vintage convertible and drove off into the sunset, Meghan Markle's reception gown toted a slinky silhouette and a refined glamour. With a high halter neckline and sans sleeves, this dress was wholly modern and totally Meghan. The designer of the gorgeous gown was also perfectly aligned with the bride's aesthetic. Not only is Stella McCartney a quintessential British designer, but her design house also promotes eco-friendly fashion, vegan leathers, and sustainability—three things that are totally on-brand for the philanthropic Duchess of Sussex.
“I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design,” McCartney told WWD. “It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career and I am so proud of all the team on this stunning sunny royal day."
But Meghan Markle wasn't the only one wearing McCartney on the royal wedding day. Both Amal Clooney and Oprah wore Stella McCartney ensembles for the royal wedding ceremony as well, with Amal stunning in a bright yellow hue and Oprah looking beautiful in blush. Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, also donned Stella McCartney for the evening reception. But Markle's Stella McCartney frock was, of course, the star of the show, inspiring brides-to-be everywhere with its modern elegance. And if you're one of them, we have you covered. While Meghan Markle's royal reception dress was a completely custom style, there is still plenty of inspiration to pull from if you're looking to don a similar look.
