Was Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress A Rip-Off?

After months of speculation about what Meghan Markle's wedding dress would look like, she stunned us all on Saturday, May 19th. She was filmed walking up the steps to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle wearing a white Givenchy gown with a boat neck, long sleeves... oh, and by the way, a train to absolutely die for.


But it seems that not everyone was swooning over Markle's wedding dress. Katy Perry made her feelings about the dress public by stating that Markle could have used a "second fitting". Retract those claws, Kitty Purry! Now, Cosmo has found someone else who was less than impressed with Markle's wedding dress.

Emilia Wickstead, who happens to be one of Kate Middleton's most favorite designers, pointed out to the Daily Mail that Markle's gown looked very similar to a dress that she designed. Both dresses have boat necks and long sleeves.

Wickstead's dress is called the "Helene wedding dress" and the two dresses do share a lot in common, except that Wickstead's Helene has a fitted waist whereas Markle's Givenchy does not.

"Her dress is identical to one of our dresses," Wickstead has said. "Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, 'It’s an Emilia Wickstead dress.'".

Hmm, we're not so sure about that but Wickstead didn't stop there. She went on to talk about the fit of Markle's dress and apparently shares Katy Perry's opinion!

"If you choose a simple design the fit should be perfect," Wickstead said. "Her wedding dress was quite loose".

Is this Wickstead showing her support for her royal fan and client by making her status known as #TeamKate rather than #TeamMeghan? Or just a designer voicing her viewpoint on the most talked about wedding dress of 2018?

You decide! Maybe this tidbit of info will help you make up your mind. Wickstead also had something to say about Markle's hair.

"I was like, 'Hold the wisps back—it’s a Royal Wedding for God’s sake.'".

Ouch! Them's fightin' words. Not actually because Markle is a classy lady and besides, it's against royal etiquette to fight a designer over harsh wedding dress words.

Do you think that Emilia Wickstead was in the wrong to call Meghan Markle out like this? Or was she just speaking her piece, no big deal? Let us know in the comments!
