Meghan Markle Wore “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue” To The Royal Wedding
All eyes were on Meghan Markle as she walked down the aisle in a custom-made Givenchy masterpiece, a simple yet stunning white dress with no frill, no lace, and no beading. Fashion experts predict that the Duchess of Sussex’s dress of choice will lead future brides to go minimal, a huge impact on bridal fashion trends.

The piece was the first bridal moment for Givenchy under the direction of Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director at the house.

But aside from the elegant dress, another timeless piece worth swooning over is Meghan’s diamond-encrusted bandeau tiara, borrowed from The Queen’s collection. According to The Royal Family’s official website, the stunning diamond bandeau was made in 1932 for Queen Mary. It was created specifically to accommodate the center brooch given to her in 1893. Both the bandeau and the brooch were handed down to The Queen in 1953.
Another sentimental fashion piece worth mentioning is the cocktail ring Meghan wore to the reception—an emerald-cut aquamarine stone that once belonged to Prince Harry’s mother. Isn't this such a heartwarming way to pay tribute to the late Princess Diana? Talk about something old and something blue!
