While all brides get dress anxiety, it must be tough when you know the whole world is watching. Yet, Meghan Markle proved that she could look amazing in multiple dresses — and she did so months after her own ceremony. During a dinner hosted by King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u in Tonga, Markle wore another wedding dress and totally made heads turn.
The dress itself was a THEIA Couture white gown, and she pulled off the look with a messy bun and a glowing smile.
Markle, who announced her pregnancy just weeks ago, chose a dress that beautifully brought attention to her shoulders. The dress includes embellishments on both sides.
It’s no secret that this type of dress has “bride” in mind. Even so, Markle managed to make the gown all her own. The brand’s creative director, Don O’Neill, even discussed how amazing it was working with the Duchess.
“It has been an exciting whirlwind collaboration,” he said, per Fashionista. “Her Royal Highness is a truly beautiful inspiring woman, a bright shining light in this world and we at Theia are truly honored to be part of The Royal Tour of Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand.”
Funny enough, creating this dress was also how O’Neill secretly learned Markle was pregnant.
To add to the beauty of her look, Harper’s Bazaar reports that Markle chose to accessorize the dress with one of Princess Diana’s cocktail rings. It’s a touching tribute to Prince Harry’s late mother, and one she’d surely have appreciated.
The site also reports that even though the gown was custom-made, fans will shortly be able to preorder their own. Buying Meghan Markle’s latest wedding dress will be a subtle way to feel even more like royalty on your own special day.
