The wedding of the year has officially been and gone, and now people are analyzing its every minute detail. What Royal protocol did Harry and Meghan break with their progressive wedding? Why on Earth was the Prince’s ex Chelsey Davis there? And perhaps most pertinently of all – who had the better dress, Meghan or Kate?
After all, although both commoners, Kate was marrying the future King of England Meghan was not, something said to be reflected by her comparatively understated dress.
To hear how Katy Perry slammed Meghan’s wedding dress, watch the video below:
For her fairytale wedding to the sixth in line to the throne, 36-year-old Meghan wrote a Givenchy dress, which was a traditional bridal white with a nipped waist, long sleeves, and bateau neckline.
When describing the dress, Kensington Palace said, “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.”
“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.”
While Meghan’s dress might have been designed to ba classic, it was certainly not to the liking of pop royalty, 33-year-old Katy Perry, who did not hold back when asked what she thought of Meghan’s dress in an interview with ET‘s Lauren Zima.
Before slamming Meghan’s dress, Katy congratulated Meghan for her work as a humanitarian and for finding love with Prince Harry, saying:
“I’m so happy for them, and, you know, I don’t know them from Adam, but it’s amazing what she’s doing with all this, her humanitarian efforts. You know, the fact that she’s a proud feminist, I love all that, so I support her as another woman and love her and wish them both well.”
Sixty-eight-year-old Lionel Richie was also present, and said, “I remember when Di had them, Lady Di, and it was amazing and now to see them both married and kids, well not yet, but married,” he said. “She would be very proud. I must tell you, I mean, it’s a moment in time, but I’m glad to see they’re moving on as young men now, as family men. I love that.”
When asked what she thought of the dress, however, Katy said, “I would have done one more fitting. I’m never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you.”
The singer then added, “Kate, Kate, Kate won, Kate won!”
Ouch. Do you agree?
Either way, before passing judgment on Meghan’s gown, it’s worth bearing in mind that she wore more than one wedding dress.
After saying “I will”, Harry and Meghan were whisked off to their evening reception at Frogmore House, and for the event, the now Duchess of Sussex changed into a bespoke Stella McCartney gown.
It was described by McCartney on Twitter as “a bespoke high neck lily white gown in silk crepe”.
Meghan wore the gown with an aquamarine cocktail ring that had belonged to Princess Diana, which she was last seen wearing in the months before her untimely death in 1997.
We will leave you to decide which of Meghan’s two dresses you prefer.
One thing’s for sure – no one can deny that Meghan looked beautiful on her big day. So Katy Perry should watch out as Meghan might decide to get her own back if Orlando Bloom ever decides to pop the question. That being said, as a Royal, it’s probably beneath her now.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish Meghan and Harry all the best for the future.
