If we were to describe the Royal Wedding in just a few words it would be: classic, elegant, and timeless. The new Duchess of Sussex was undoubtedly stunning as she gracefully donned a dress by Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy. What better way to wear a crown and possibly one of the most stunning veils, that with a classic chic chignon. With a simple middle part, this modern bride let her inner beauty do all of the talking. Her face seemed to sparkle as she walked down the aisle – and we absolutely LOVE how her hair worked for her second dress, designed by Stella McCartney. With shoulders like hers, her high neck gown and classic updo were a breath of fresh air – which is exactly what Meghan is to the Royal Family.
Speaking of McCartney… One of our favorite classics – Clooney arrived with his stunning wife Amal on his arm, who was also wearing Stella McCartney. The marigold yellow gown accompanied by a perfectly perched hat and cascading curls with a pearl-studded birdcage veil was smashing on her. Oprah, in all shades of peach and a larger than life hat also wore McCartney.
When it came to the Royal Family, the wedding ensemble was full of white and fresh shades of green. Just like the meal was themed to celebrate spring turning into summer – this is how we felt about the shades they chose for their dress as well. The Queen was in bright lime green and Meghan Markle’s mom was in a fresh pea shoot green color.
Hair was mostly worn up or down as the hats were the focus of the festivities. The hair, specifically Meghan’s was styled by Serge Normant and he aimed to make sure that Meghan looked like herself. She has been trivialized as of late for breaking “protocol” and wearing a “messy bun” however as most girls know, messy can be chic! Her wedding hair was a “controlled messy bun”. Her hair wasn’t shellacked to her head and a great deal of her natural beauty shone through. Markle had wanted an “easy” style for the big day, which says a lot about the beautiful person that she is. Normant created the look by first blow drying her hair and then applying minimal products as he pulled it back. Not many can pull of the middle part on their wedding day and we’d say Meghan nailed the look! Normant found out about the gorgeous tiara (a piece that was borrowed from Queen Elizabeth II that included a brooch from Queen Elizabeth I dating back to 1893) and the 16-foot veil about a week before the big day. He had to figure out how to ensure this ensemble would stay in place – a trivial task for any stylist!
