After a little bit of thought, I have finally decided to write this post as I was caught in two whether I would end up contradicting myself.
So, the question is? Was the dress stunning as they make it out to be? I think the word `stunning´ here is overrated as it was nothing special. Let’s be honest. A white silk long-sleeved dress with a boat neck. That’s it. Nothing more to it, and I must agree with Katy Perry’s recent statement, `It needed another fitting´ as she so correctly put it. It hung loosely on the front part without giving it much structure to the chest or waist and we all know she has a cute tiny figure to flaunt, so why have a saggy/creased look on your big day?
On the positive side ( because there is one), her make-up and hair looked so natural it was perfect. She’s got beautiful features and her olive skin shone wonderfully without having to masquerade it under lots of make-up.
The veil was definitely the highlight. Apart from trailing beautifully with the dress so delicately (as veils usually do), it was very clever to have had all the flowers embroidered onto the veil by all 53 countries in the Commonwealth. A true act of uniting people from all backgrounds and rights together.
Now for the evening gown, I truly have nothing negative to say. Absolutely gorgeous. Simplicity was also key and this Stella McCartney´s Ivory halter neck gown gave her the glamorous look she suits best in. In comparison to Kate´s evening gown in 2011, which was very princess-like with the nipped in waist and sweetheart neckline, Meghan´s was modern, sexy and ideal for this American sweetheart.
