How to Get Meghan Markle’s ,000 Engagement Photo Dress for Less
Meghan Markle's Engagement Photo Dress Could Be a Hint At Her Wedding Gown
Meghan Markle may have just dropped a subtle hint at who will design her wedding dress for her walk down the aisle in May. The soon to be royal's official engagement session with Prince Harry, released today by Kensington Palace and shot by notable photographer Alexi Lubomirski, features a whole lot of romance–and a prominent fixture in the British world of bridal.
The soon-to-be Duchess opted for a Couture evening gown for her series of shots with her royal beau, choosing it-Brit designer Ralph & Russo for the occasion. While Markle chose to don a semi-sheer, red carpet appropriate look for the sitting with one of fashion's most recognizable shooters (Lubomirski's work has graced the cover of Harper's BAZAAR many times), she and Harry managed to keep the overall look and feel of the photographs laid-back, intimate and easy.
Markle's dramatic gown but easygoing attitude is indicative of her comfort in front of the camera and is certainly a stark contrast to Kate Middleton's choice for her royal engagement photos with Prince William. The now-Duchess of Cambridge chose a less dressy, more buttoned-up Reiss look for her photos with William. It's safe to say that on the whole, Will & Kate's session felt more posed, formal and restrained than Harry and Meghan's romantic and comfortable shots.
While Meghan's fashion-forward choice has us falling that much more in love with her (and with the two of them as a couple), we can't help but wonder–is Meghan's designer choice for these photos a hint at who will work with her on her wedding gown? The process of designing a bridal gown is a sentimental and intimate one, and it would make sense that the new-to-England Markle would test out British labels she has her eye on in key moments leading up to the wedding to narrow down who she'll choose to work with on her dress (or dresses) for the big day.
Ralph & Russo has been coming up in the ranks as of late–with celebrity fans ranging from Kendall Jenner to Bella Hadid to Brie Larson. While they were relative unknowns until a couple of seasons ago, the brand has been well-known for their Couture-level craftsmanship in the United Kingdom for over a decade.
