let it shine

The Royal Wedding was a journey and the haute couture dress told a story crafted to take all 53 countries of the Commonwealth along as Meghan Markle became the Duchess of Sussex at St. George's Chapel on Saturday:

Speaking about the design, Clare Waight Keller (the first female Artistic Director of the House of Givenchy) said: "We wanted to create a timeless piece that would emphasize the iconic codes of Givenchy throughout its history, as well as convey modernity through sleek lines and cuts.
"In contrast, the delicate floral beauty of the veil was a vision Meghan and I shared, a special gesture embracing the commonwealth flora, ascending the circumference of the silk tulle."  (UK Daily Mirror)
