Swamped! Meghan Markle’s £4k wedding dress attacked for looking like CURTAINS
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were back in wedding mode this weekend just one month after the tying the knot themselves – and the Duchess of Sussex’s dress quickly received mixed reviews among royal watchers.
The American royal joined her new husband for his cousin Celia McCorquodale’s wedding to George Woodhouse in the village of Rochford, Lincolnshire.
The 36-year-old Duchess of Sussex opted for a £3,922 long-sleeved blue-and-white floral Oscar de la Renta wrap dress, with minimal make up and her signature messy bun.
She teamed the summery look with towering Aquazzura heels, a white fascinator, thought to be just £29.50 from Marks and Spencer, and carried a small clutch bag.
But the floaty maxi dress has received mixed reviews from online royal watchers, with some even likening the frock to a baggy pair of curtains and a table cloth.
While many thought the floral frock “swamped” the 36-year-old duchess.
A Twitter user said: “#Meghan Markle – looks like she re-inacted the Gone with the Wind scene where Scarlett makes a dress from old curtains. Megan only had a M&S duvet to work with.(sic)”
Another said: “When wearing Oscar de la Renta makes you look like you are wearing the living room curtains.”
Others called for the Duchess of Sussex to “sack the stylist”.
Looks like she’s just got out of bed & wrapped a pair of curtains or a table cloth round herself
One said: “Love her but she needs to have a word with the stylist …. looks like she’s just got out of bed & wrapped a pair of curtains or a table cloth round herself,and then been dragged thru a bush backwards. #sackthestylist #MeghanMarkle”
Another user said: “Dress is swamping her again.who’s doing the fittings on this poor girl. #harryandmeghan #toobig #RoyalWedding #duchessofsussex #MeghanMarkle #needsanewstylist”
One posted: Oh no sorry #MeghanMarkle this is not you, way too big!! Where has your lovely style gone?”
But others jumped to the defence of the duchess.
A Twitter user said: “The model wears it the same way as Meghan did it’s the style plus who wants to out dress the Bride love Meghan’s choice of dress it’s a country wedding and a country style she looks beautiful in it. I love it!”
Another simply said: “That dress is so magnificent. I love Meghan’s style so much. Always sleek & classic.”
The Duchess of Sussex’s appearance at her husband’s cousins wedding comes just a month after her own Royal Wedding to Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle, 36, looked relaxed and happy as she blended in and greeted family members.
