  1. Did she wear the ugly, way toooooo big dress in order to detract from that strange fugly hat perched on her messy hair? BIG fashion faux paus, the entire thing is a mess.

    1. I agree, she appears to be drowning in this dress. It reminds me of when my little girls would play dress up in my clothes. They would fit just like this one.

    2. Totally agree with you both !

  2. Everything about Meghan's dress is horrible. What was she thinking? Too big for her, it swallows her up. The print looks like something you would have for drapes or bedsheets, or perhaps the pattern on dishes. The hat looks like leftover ribbons from a present were taped on top of her messy hair. I have always hated her messy bun look. The overall look is a total disaster. No one else at the wedding wore a floor length dress. Why did she? The bride, however, looks beautiful. I love her dress. The Spencer tiara is a nice touch to top off a beautiful bride.

    1. Wow! The dress is to big for her tiny frame, but calling it a total disaster trivializes the true meaning of the term. Patterns using that particular shade of blue and white are an echo of Wedgwood blue, which is quintessentially British. A smaller size may have looked better but the length of the dress is appropriate for such a light summery fabric. Rome was not built in a day. She will improve with time.

    3. I know. First we get pleased that she is wearing color, but then what is this! some bed cover for a dress and a pot on her head! 😠
      What still puzzles me she never used to dress like this when she was in the US. She is not doing herself any favors.

      The bride's wedding dress is lovely, better than the last wedding 🙈

    4. I completely agree with you. Well said. I also read that it cost almost $6,000. She certainly does have expensive taste in clothes. Not only what she wears "professionally" but her personal wardrobe as well. Unfortunately, most of them don't look worth the price.

  3. Interesting dress, but overpowers Meghan's trim figure. The blouse part does not flatter or serve her well. Suggest she put this dress in the back of her closet. I think Meghan, just starting out in her new Royal role, is still finding her way in respect to a dramatically different style of clothing from her Suits days on and off the set. (At the Trooping the Colour beautiful dress but exposed shoulders don't belong there.) In time, with everything else she has to learn and absorb, she'll find her own style (like Kate did) and, hopefully, will come out fine.

  4. This is a nice dress , but for someone else. Dss meghan's body frame is very different,tiny someone like CP MM would fit this just fine,she has a bit more of everything. Both hopefully had a good time,that is the important thing.

  5. When I looked at the first photo I thought how lovely,summery and it's colourful! Then as I scrolled down on closer inspection I thought oh no not another bathrobe! I do like the pattern but it swallows her tiny frame and reminds me so much of a summer bathrobe. The bride looks beautiful and reminds me a tiny bit of Diana. Can't quite see Lady Sarah's outfit but what you can it does look lovely.

  6. This is a pretty, feminine dress, but I think she is drowning in it. The fascinator isn't fascinating as it is difficult just to know what it is supposed to be. I really don't want to discourage, but hope her style coalesces better - for her sake.

  7. This is the first time that I can say i didn't really like what she wore. Her dress is too big for her. It's nice to to see her wearing her aquazzura wedding shoes though.

  8. what is that weird walk she does? crossing her feet in front of each other? She is so pretty, the dress is pretty, unfortunately the 2 do not go together. She looks so well in very fitted clothing. She will find her way.

    1. It is the walk that models do on the fashion show runway. One foot in front of the other which makes their hips move from side to side.

      Delete
    2. I think this is the walk she used on Suits. It used to annoy me because it was so sexualised. It also involves swaying her rear which is okay for Hollywood or even the catwalk, but not for Buckingham Palace. Hopefully she will re-train herself to walk a little straighter.

      Delete
    3. I noticed she walked like that when she left for the after party at her wedding and also recently at the garden party for Charles's birthday. I thought it odd also but, you are right, it does make the hips sway and looks a bit too theatrical.

  9. I live in Plymouth, MN, a middle class suburb of Minneapolis, MN. (Not a fashion mecca.) While Meghan may have had a lifestyle blog and a television career, I must say there are women at the mall here in Plymouth who could have dressed her in a more flattering way than did her stylist for this occasion.

    1. Nice dress but it not fits well on Meghan for this occasion.
      And the fascinetor doesn't work well with her and her dress
      Probably in a different occasion,
      Without fascinetor (a romantic walk in the evening on the beach for instance) the dress could be the perfect choice

  10. Well...... I like the print....that is all I got.

    It is too big in every way and and I also hate that $45 hat. Yes it is $45. This is her first big miss for me. I think she was trying to go English June Country Wedding....but missed the mark. If the dress had been bespoke it might be a win. But it is too long in sleeves, too big in chest and waist and it just is TOO BIG!

    She is still building her wardrobe so I will give a pass...as long as she passes this off to MM. This is a Little House on the Prairie dress! Please mail to Norway c/o The Crown Princess

  11. Why on Earth is she wearing a long dress to this wedding (forgotten the dresscode from her own wedding, less than a month ago?)…… still a lot to learn!
    The dress is pretty, but looks oversized on her and her hair is a pretty mess - as usual.

    1. If a stylist is involved, Harry made a big mistake in hiring her

    2. I read that Harry is kind of acting as her stylist. It said she runs everything by him because she values his opinion and he doesn't care about any protocol rules. Maybe she shouldn't value his opinion so much.

  13. I like the dress - love the pale blue and white - but it does look like a dressing gown on Meghan. I think a smaller size would have fixed that and she wouldn't have been drowning in it.

    I think her hair is lovely and I don't mind the fascinator/hat.

  14. OMG she's wearing a bathrobe......

    The print is quite nice and I'm ok with the hat.. but the shape of this dress? omg. worse.

    The Bride looks fantastic, the Spencer tiara fits her well.
    Saw Pics on dailymail where she smiles incredible and you can see, that she's from the same family like Diana.

  15. I so feared the day when she would appear with one of these silly fascinators planted on her head. Bhamm! There it is! 😩😩😩

    1. Neither color would suit her if it is too big and she doesn't know what to wear it

    2. White and blue is always flattering, but yes the other dress version of la Renta and a blue fascinator would have looked more British.

  19. Oh no. For many occasions I liked her messy hair. But not today, especially in combination with this weird fascinator. (In my opinion it's nice to combine a straight and puristic dress with a messy, more natural, hair do. But this outfit was too "messy" at all.)
    And the dress is too big for her.
    She can do it better. Hope for Royal Ascot this week.

  21. C'est bien évident que la duchesse Meghan fera des faux pas vestimentaires. Qui n'en fait pas? Pour moi, cette fois-ci c'en est un car cette robe ne lui sied pas bien. On la voit trop grande pour elle. Avec sa si délicate taille, elle semble perdue dans cet amas de tissu, aussi léger soit-il. Peut-être que la consigne était de porter du bleu. Sinon, je crois que la version en rouge et blanc aurait plus mis en valeur son teint.

  22. Sorry Meghan, one of your worst dress :( The hat dosn't suit her. She definitely can do much better. Hairdo ist too messy - a messy bun suits her , but here it passed the target...

  23. Very wonderful couple of Harry and Meghan

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think she has had to buy a lot of outfits for many different occasions in a short time frame. For some of those outfits, what seemed right at the time didn't translate well to the occasion. Maybe she is working with a new stylist or she is doing it all herself. Give her time, she will get it right. Just seeing the loving looks Harry gives her is worth seeing her in anything.

  25. At least she wasn’t outshining the bride and that’s always a good thing. KP Victoria also knows how to be a good guest, she is usually very modest. I do love Oscar de la Renta and the dress is wonderful. In my opinion Meghan was smart: it’s not easy to be the most famous guest.

  26. An unfortunate fashion choice and strangely in complete contrast to her usual structured, minimalist style.

    ReplyDelete
  27. She looks like she really did just wrap herself in her drapes. Her dress is too large and better suited for a beach wedding, the hat would suit a teenager wearing her first fascinator at a wedding, and her hair is just a mess. I mean, there's a difference between relaxed boho/hipster fashion and a mess. This is a mess. I expected a different fashion sense from Meghan, I'm slightly disappointed.

  28. A large dress for the prairie and certainly not with that hat.

  30. Poor woman can't win. Criticized for showing a bit of shoulder during Trooping the Color; now criticized for too much coverage and drowning in fabric. I agree that the dress is not one of her best looks but for an off-duty summer wedding with family in the country, I really think it's fine.

    1. I'm sorry, Pine, but in this case you are too generous. It's awful. In this case, perhaps the sleeveless version would have been an improvement, even with the jacket over the shoulder trick. (I thought her Trooping of the Colour dress was fine, by the way) Main problem with this is it's just far too big--at least two sizes by the look of it. The pattern is lovely and summery but imagine it in a fitted sheath, on or off the shoulder, with some kind of wrap---she'd look gorgeous. Criticism of the outfit doesn't equate to criticism of the Duchess--she's still lovely

    2. Ok, Annie, I do see your points. However, I still think it's fine for a summer country wedding when they are not on duty. I am glad that she didn't wear this in an official capacity.

  33. No matter where you buy your clothes, they almost always need to be fitted. If the dress is off the designer's peg, the same rule applies. It's worth the effort.

    1. I agree Marina. Queen Letitia's clothes look like they were made for her despite being off the rack most of the time. She must have them all fitted perfectly for her.
