Royal wedding fashion highlights: fresh colours, fascinators and frockcoats - Macleans.ca
British weddings are often a show of the best that fashion can offer, and the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was no exception. Sure, the bride was beautiful in Givenchy and the groom handsome in his military frockcoat, but the guests also came dressed to impress.
The women’s hats ranged from small berets, like that of mother of the bride, Doria Ragland, to the most extravagant example of millinery prowess (hello Camilla!). Equally diverse was the range of colours and outfits. Some guests wore the latest in fashion while others chose safe, comfortable outfits that could withstand long hours of sitting. Amal Clooney melded both options with a beautifully tailored mustard frock and hat that lit up social media. Many wore dizzingly high heels, perhaps not the best choice given the incline of the castle sidewalk they had to navigate.
What all wore were big smiles. (Well, except for Victoria Beckham, whose lips never curved up or down.). For they knew the wedding wasn’t about them, it was about the two people at the altar.
