After months of speculation Meghan Markle’s wedding dress designer was finally revealed as she walked into St. George's Chapel this morning.
The now Duchess of Sussex wore a stunning Givenchy wedding dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller. The gown featured 3⁄4-length sleeves, clean lines, a bateau neckline, and a very simple silhouette.
According to the palace: "The dress epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952." The press release also states, "True to the heritage of the house, the pure lines of the dress are achieved using six meticulously placed seams. The focus of the dress is the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist.
The lines of the dress extend towards the back where the train flows in soft round folds cushioned by an underskirt in triple silk organza. The slim three-quarter sleeves add a note of refined modernity."
