Meghan Markle officially became a member of the royal family and arranged a series of events according to her schedule, including the Royal Air Force Centennial – her dress to commemorate the event may be reminiscent of another piece of clothing in her closet. Meghan Markle wore a boat-necked midi dress and participated in the Royal Air Force 100th Anniversary event, wearing an LBD version of the wedding dress.
Duchess’ wedding dress is a custom Givenchy dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller, who is the creative director of the iconic fashion house in France. This dress hits all the notes Markle is looking for – modern and timeless, conservative and loyal to her style – and the end result is a long trailing dress, long sleeves and boat neck without any decoration or lace detail.
Thanks to the classic and minimalist design, Markle can now relive her wedding dress in the form of a cocktail dress. All she needs is a boat collar, and she is also a replica.
However, the Royal Air Force celebration dress was not made by Givenchy, nor was it white. Instead, it is a long-sleeved black dress by Dior with a loose midi skirt for a retro look.
This silhouette is reminiscent of the 1950s, reminiscent of the clothes worn by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. To match the look, Markle chose the carefully distorted black glamorous designer by Stephen Jones, the regular hat designer of Princess Diana. In fact, at the beginning of her royal career, he became the leader of Ms. Diana, who created her first hat when she was 20 years old.
He started her collection with a series of berets – Marker paid tribute to her Commonwealth Day service in March and embroidered the interior of the Princess Diana’s beret with her initials and the feathers of the Prince of Wales. And now Markle is using his talent to create a hat for his royal wardrobe.
For Mark, this is a busy week, and as time goes by, many gears will change. Earlier this week, the Duchess arrived at the christening of her nephew, came to the baptism of Prince Louis, dressed in olive green, and tied Ralph Lauren’s dress. Like her Dior Royal Air Force anniversary dress, it’s a simple streamlined number with a boat neckline. This dress has a simple yet timeless design with a fuzzy vintage feel, with a pencil skirt silhouette and a high waist.
She re-stretched her head with an olive-green hat that sat on her head in a brisk angle, which Stephen Jones made again.
If you want to know if the Duchess is wearing the boat permanently, she will switch from time to time. For example, just last week, at the Commonwealth Youth Challenge in Marlborough House, London, Markle took part in the event wearing a sleeveless crew neck dress, proving that her wardrobe was versatile.
Trading in monochrome and neutral tones, she chose a bright lemon-yellow hue with a hem below the knees and a high neckline for a columnar effect. (Fairly, it’s still a ship, but it’s a different iteration!)
Whether it’s her wedding dress or the designer’s active dress, Markle has returned the boat tie style. She has a strong interest in the look of retro style and hopes it will continue to emerge.
