Meghan's Second Wedding Dress (and Car) Is About as Hollywood as It Gets

Meghan Markle (or should we say the Duchess of Sussex) has changed out of her Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller wedding gown into a custom slinky dress by Stella McCartney for the evening reception at Frogmore House. She finished the look with Reflection de Cartier earrings with white gold and diamonds.

Although the evening reception is a private event, the couple waved as they drove in a vintage E-type Jaguar with the personalized license plate E190518 in a cinematic moment that looked like it was straight from a James Bond film. Meghan opted for a white halter gown made of silk crepe with a fitted bodice and a flared floor-sweeping skirt with a huge aquamarine ring on her finger that belonged to Princess Diana. As with her first wedding dress, this is a sleek, modern look with no embellishment or lace and a focus on clean lines.

McCartney said of the commissioning of Meghan's wedding second dress: "I am so proud and honored to have been chosen by the Duchess of Sussex to make her evening gown and represent British design. It has truly been one of the most humbling moments of my career. Congratulations Harry and Meghan!"

With these two dresses, Meghan will change bridal trends, moving them away from lace to a cleaner more minimal designs. "We're thrilled to see Meghan embracing and leading a new trend in wedding dress style," say the experts at "Ever since Kate and William's weddings, lace has dominated wedding dresses in the UK with 45% of UK brides wearing lace on their big day in 2017 and only 16% wearing satin or silk. In comparison, Meghan's dress is striking, structural, demure, and clean, evoking a very traditional and reserved look that is still forward-thinking and modern in style. Just as with Kate's influence, we are sure to see Meghan's dress completely transform the wedding dress styles for many years to come."
