Meghan Markle in Too Much Dress Spawns Bathrobe-Like Critiques
Did Meghan Markle Experience a Fashion Fail?
Prince Harry's new wife is usually seen stepping out looking like the epitome of fashion, but something happened over the weekend when Harry and Meghan attended the wedding of Princess Diana's relative. Meghan was chastised for her choice of ensemble and even some of her most devoted fans felt this dress did nothing for the former "Suits" star.
First of all Meghan Markle could wear a paper bag and look just as gorgeous as she would in a gown and her beauty is just not skin deep. She is someone who shines inside and out. With that said, the critics are having a field day with the expensive designer dress that Meghan decided to wear to this weekend wedding.
No one likes to upstage a bride but unfortunately, it appears that this might be the case when Meghan made her way into the church. The media honed in on what she was wearing, placing the woman getting married on the back burner in the headlines. As you can see from the pictures of Meghan posted in this article, the fabric itself was beautiful, it's just there was a lot of it.
As some folks commented, the material of her dress wasn't what you would call flowing, but more like baggy and bunched up because there was so much of it. One person suggested if she answered the front door in this ensemble with a cup of coffee in her hands, people would think she just got out of bed and was wearing her robe.
That's One Expensive Bathrobe
It would have been quite the expensive robe if that were the case, but it was not. Meghan was wearing a dress. The Sun reports the Oscar De LA Renta cocktail dress that Meghan wore comes with a price tag of £3,922, which is just over $5,000 when converted from pounds to dollars.
One thing everyone is forgetting about, Meghan looked so comfortable in all that flowing material as far as nothing bunching an pinching her as often happens in tight-fitting clothes. As you can see from the picture above, Prince Harry was caught in pictures as he gazed down at his wife as she walked in that dress.
Meghan did need to hold on to the fabric as she walked and it appears that Prince Harry took notice of his wife's struggle with her "frock." Other folks pointed out that Meghan attempted to finish the look off with a tiny fascinator on top of such an overwhelming dress. T
The look of this ensemble wasn't saved by the hat. It just brought more attention to the big vs. small contrast of the dress and the fascinator.
Another Fashion Fail?
Meghan Wasn't the Only One
As you can see in the picture above the dresses on the ladies attending this wedding were not all form-fitted. The big floral dress with the huge skirted bottom looked like something a little girl in the 1950s might wear with her Mary Jane shoes.
So who got married? It was the wedding of Princess Diana's niece, who is also Prince William and Prince Harry's cousin. Her name is Celia McCorquodale and she appeared to be pushed aside in the headlines due to what people are calling a fashion fail for Meghan.
E Online reports that Meghan almost tumbled on the wet grass making her way into the church for the wedding. Thankfully she had a hold of Harry's hand at the time, but he didn't throw caution to the wind. He guided his lovely new wife into the church so she wouldn't slip again.
Was Meghan Lost In Her Garb?
An Overwhelming Dress
Like it says above, Meghan would look beautiful even if you dress her in a paper bag. Still, it is hard to argue that this dress wasn't a bit too big on the petite wife of Prince Harry. Why didn't someone mention this to Meghan before she stepped out in all this excess fabric?
Meghan's fans spoke up in the comments of the Sun article. They said the dress might have looked nicer if it were more fitted to her. A few agreed with the critics that it looked more like a "dressing gown." Another commenter went a bit further to say it appeared as if Meghan was wearing an elderly person's dressing gown.
"Harry looks bemused" by what his wife is wearing, suggested yet another person commenting on the Sun's article. They also pointed out that Meghan appeared "self-conscience" in that outfit as if she realized it wasn't her finest moment in fashion. The descriptions of Meghan in this dress ranged from a "bedsheet" to looking "hideous" with a few people suggesting her stylist isn't doing their job.
