“Proud And Honoured”: Stella McCartney Talks About Process Of Designing Meghan Markle's Wedding Reception Dress

August 29, 2018

Meghan Markle always looks gorgeous and stylish at official events. But who creates all these beautiful outfits for the royal family member? Turned out, Stella McCartney is one of the favorite Meghan’s fashion designers. She has already worn Stella’s pieces before, at Invictus Games reception and the Queen’s birthday party.

Meghan looks indeed stunning in this green floral dress. Do you agree?

For Stella McCartney, designing the dress for the royal wedding is the validation of successes she’s already achieved. In the interview with Elle, she said:

I have had moments in my career where I’ve caught up with Gwyneth or Madonna and was like, “Can I dress you for that?” But this time around, they were drawn to me. [Meghan] approached me and we worked on other things. She wore other pieces of mine and we had a friendship. And then she asked me to do her second wedding dress. I was honoured and I still am.

Of course, she was very proud to be chosen for this responsible role. On her Instagram account, Stella wrote:

I am so proud and honoured 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!

The conversation around Meghan’s dress went beyond fashion. In McCartney’s hands, it became a feminist and environmental statement. Stella McCartney is known for her great principles - vegetarianism and environmentally conscious mindset, which she introduced to the larger fashion world.


So, Meghan Markle’s wedding dress was discussed not just from the perspective of beauty, but also within the context of the couple’s choice in transport (an electric car), floral design (produced by a sustainable florist) and food (a seasonal, local and beef-free menu).

In the Elle interview, Stella said:

I think Meghan chose me for reasons other than just a beautiful dress — plenty of people can do that. She is not a difficult client to make look beautiful. Amal called me and asked me to do it, as did Oprah. I look at that Amal dress, and it is made of sustainable viscose that took us three years to develop. And I think, obviously I am a British designer, but I think being a woman and being a women’s woman played a part. They are all women’s women. It’s a big deal


By the way, Meghan Markle was not the only who wore Stella McCartney's dress at the royal wedding, as Amal Clooney and Oprah Winfrey also chose this famous English fashion designer.



Stella McCartney is indeed a talented designer, and all her outfits look gorgeous!
