Caroline Castigliano discusses Meghan Markle’s dress choice

Having worked in the industry for 27 years, Caroline Castigliano is at the forefront of luxury bridal. Caroline is known for her simple and elegant designs with clean and classic lines, making her a big fan of Meghan’s dress choice.


Were you surprised by Meghan’s dress choice?


“Meghan has totally managed to surprise us all, Givenchy and British designer Clare Waight Keller stayed totally out of the press radar…”
“Meghan’s gown is simplistic and certainly fits in with Meghan’s way of dressing in a timeless and elegant manner. The neckline is a lovely bateau that graces her neckline wonderfully. I thought Meghan would wear a more fitted gown than past Royal brides and she certainly has! The dress in in line with Royal tradition with covered shoulders and back, but Meghan’s modernisms shines through with the three-quarter sleeves.”


Did the dress live up to your expectations?


“Meghan has had the world in suspense with what she will wear, and with such high expectations on her she has not failed to disappoint. Meghan has certainly created a name for herself fashion wise – she is following in the footsteps of Diana who was a fashion icon in the public eye for 16 years… and has done a fabulous modern job!”

“The whole wedding is picture perfect and fairy tale like with all of the bridesmaids looking fabulous!”


How do you think the dress compares with other Royal choices?


“Meghan, has done a fantastic job of differentiating herself and making her mark with this gown. It’s stunning and totally unique from Diana and Kate’s lace look!”
“Meghan looks thoroughly modern with her choice of gown and this is her personality shining through and I think she is showing how she will add to the Royal family here with her gown.”


What was your favourite part of the dress?


“Meghan is always super thoughtful in her fashion choices and it’s absolutely beautiful the way she has chosen to acknowledge the 53 countries of the Commonwealth by have the design represented on her veil!”


Caroline isn’t the only industry expert who approves of the Duchess of Sussex’s gown. Make sure you check out Charlie Brear, Rosanna Garden from Motee Maids, and Johnny Roxburgh’s views.
