Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, just arrived at the Cliveden House Hotel ahead of the royal wedding tomorrow morning, and Markle added fuel to one of this week's growing wedding dress rumors. On the eve of her much-anticipated royal wedding, the bride-to-be wore a classic fitted navy dress by her friend Roland Mouret. Could this be a not-so-subtle hint about what she'll wear tomorrow?
Names like Erdem, Stella McCartney, and Ralph and Russo may be the front-runners, but it's also likely that Roland Mouret is involved in the day due to his long-standing friendship with the bride. What Meghan Wore founder Susan Courter told Who What Wear that she believes Mouret could be the man for the job: "I've always felt strongly around Roland Mouret in the beginning, right off the bat, and I think that's because of their connection and their friendship. And Meghan tends to gravitate toward someone that she knows, that knows her style, and knows what flatters her. As well, he is a London-based designer, and he would be able to zone in and focus on those clean lines, a tailored look, with a little bit of a whimsical element within the dress."
Markle opted for a classic Roland Mouret design the day before her wedding. Her fitted dress features his signature silhouette with capped sleeves, a flattering knee length, and interesting modern design details thanks to the asymmetric neckline and elegant, draped skirt. She paired the simple but sophisticated dress with a pair of pointed dove gray court shoes. The dress was $1890 at Selfridges but, of course, is already sold out. Ragland dressed in a similarly classic style, wearing a cream shift dress with a collarless black tweed jacket and a smart matching envelope clutch bag.
