If you're anything like us, the anticipation for Pippa Middleton's wedding is killing you! What will the bride wear? How cute will the royal children be walking down the aisle? Will it rain? And the one on the top of our list: What will Meghan Markle wear to be Prince Harry's official plus-one? Now that Markle has officially landed in London for the weekend's festivities, we're down to predicting what the Suits actress will wear for her turn on the royal wedding circuit.
Markle has been known to turn heads, not only for her natural beauty but also for her impeccable sense of style. So it's no wonder everyone wants to know what Prince Harry's girlfriend will wear for this year's most anticipated wedding, and we're betting she'll find a way to make a classic style the most talked-about wedding-guest look since Pippa did the honors herself. "If I think about my style icons, I love [stylist] Géraldine Saglio and [French Vogue editor] Emmanuelle Alt. The way I dress is really monochromatic or tonal, and I like really classic pieces," Markle told Matchesfashion in 2015.
"I also love that French way of styling, where if your outfit is pulled together, then something’s got to be disheveled—your hair, your makeup."
So what does that mean for this beauty's Pippa wedding attire? We're taking some cues from what Markle has worn in the past to guess. After all, she recently made a splash accompanying Prince Harry to a wedding in Jamaica. For the beachside (and barefoot) ceremony, Markle chose a floor-length floral gown by Erdem (one of Princess Katherine's favorites). The black floral-printed gown was perfect for a beach wedding, but what will the fashionable Markle wear for the two looks she'll need for Pippa's country wedding?
Here, ten dresses we think would be perfect for the Suits star.
Will she repeat designers and bet on another Erdem wedding look? This black floral cold-shouldered dress is perfect for an upscale spring wedding, and we could totally see Markle rocking a British designer for her first major royal(ish) event. ("Kaitlyn" floral-jacquard open-shoulder dress, $4,200, Erdem; available at Matchesfashion)
For her first public outing with Prince Harry at a polo match, Markle chose to wear Antonio Berardi, so wearing one of the designer’s dresses is totally possible. This forest-green number by the designer is the ideal choice for someone making a first impression on her new boyfriend's family. (Side note: Can't you totally see Markle's Suits character, Rachel Zane, rocking this look?) (Stretch cady gown, $3,370, Antonio Berardi; available at Net-a-porter)
Markle is no stranger to the fashion world, having even recently met up with pal Roland Mouret for lunch. Could Mouret design something special for Markle to wear to Pippa’s wedding? If Markle's looking to go the millennial pink route, this sparking dress by the designer could be the perfect second look for the evening's festivities. ("Copernicus" draped dusty-rose silk-lurex-georgette dress with black satin ribbon, $3,810, Roland Mouret)
The actress has said she’s not driven by trends when it comes to her fashion choices, so we could see her going for a classic style in an unexpected color for the evening reception. She's also a self-proclaimed fan of Victoria Beckham, and choosing something from a recently knighted British icon would be a good move with the royals, right? (Draped midi wrap dress, $2,450, Victoria Beckham)
Even before she was all over the royal newswires, Markle could be relied upon to be a fashion standout. On her style radar? Lanvin! "Now, the designer I wear so often on the red carpet is Lanvin—just beautifully crafted, simple silhouettes," Markle told Matchesfashion. We would not be surprised if wearing a flowing yet simple look from Lanvin was at the top of Markle's choices for this day. (Long chiffon dress, $3,335, Lanvin)
Markle's proven she looks good in red and in Giambattista Valli, so maybe this ultraromantic open-shouldered number from the designer could be the ideal look for the Middleton party.
We know Markle looks good in Self-Portrait, and the brand is a favorite amongst wedding guests. Will a guipure-lace dress in bright cobalt be in her future? (One-shouldered guipure-lace midi dress, $545, Self-Portrait; available at Matchesfashion.com)
Whatever she chooses, there's no doubt Markle is going to turn heads!
