So you think the clothes are next to the Oprah-Harry-Meghan talk? You think it is the vocal bombings and revelations that there is no talk, and no one is going to give the two figs that the former royal couple who are speaking to them are wearing what? You, my friend, must think again. Costumes are always part of the program.
Ever since she first made headlines in a successful TV show, not only as an actress, but as a potential British princess, Meghan Markle proved herself the master of visual messaging.
So she chose whatever she chose for her career and the biggest speaking moment ever for such a wedding – that is, pre-campaigning and public relations war from the palace, Sussex and behind the scenes for each Given while watching. Being seen by more people than anyone else since her marriage – it was not going to be a random, just-cause-less-shimmer.
It was going to be a costume with purpose. A dress that has a tone set. A dress that, after all, can be seen and seen again as the photos from the interview went around the world and down in royal history, pictures of Princess Diana in Princess Black appearing under her bangs from under Martin Bashir Were. The BBC interview in 1995 still appears whenever the subject of that royal divorce comes up.
And the answer is… A. $ 4,700 Black Silk Wrap Dress By Giorgio Armani with a white lotus flower print under one shoulder.
According to City CountryIn royal whispers, Ms. Markle specifically chose the dress due to the symbolism of the lotus flower, and the fact that the blossom represents rebirth, which was also part of the interview that represented: of an independent entity Reincarnation of Harry and Meghan in form. Authentically separating themselves from the royal family; The rebirth of his voice. Also, of course, the birth of the couple’s next child. Oh – and also the fact that, T&C wrote, Kamal “can flourish despite seemingly daunting circumstances.”
Although there is some irony in the very expensive attire being chosen to represent the wearer’s suffering and resilience, partly on the face of pain.
Still, she is dressed above her pregnant belly, with pointed black aquazura heels and a diamond Cartier tennis bracelet that was once owned by Princess Diana (chosen so that, the couple told Ms. Winfrey, she May have happened to them), it was not. Your run-of-the-mill maternity look, of course.
Not at all “Royals! They’re just like us!” This kind of thing. Not even: “Hey, we’re in America now and we’re going to use all this attention to help an American designer,” This kind of thing. Not even the kind of thing like eco-sensitive or support-out-outs. (All kinds of things that were previously part of creating a public image of Ms. Markle.)
A high glamor, celebrity-like thing. Armani was the first high fashion designer to woo the Hollywood set; Looking for “style but making it safe” to go executes the name for the stars and the studio looks serious but not full. (When asked how she felt about Ms. Markle choosing her dress for the big interview, Mr. Armani emailed, “It’s hard for me to comment on Meghan’s choice, given that it I have a dress in my collection. “
And it also called it “It’s my choice because now I’m free to make my choice and I don’t have to think about diplomacy or meeting the expectations of all those who put their hopes on me as an agent Changes have taken place. “Kind of thing. (This is a heavy thing, admitted.)
It is such a thing that Diana also, after her divorce, partially declared independence in favor of high-octane European designers. And such a thing, perhaps unfortunately, that Wallis Simpson must have worn when he and Edward went into exile; Mrs. Simpson seemed to be comforted in high fashion as well.
Still, Prince Harry did not do an Edward at all. He wore a Pigeon Gray J Crew Ludlow suit for the interview – jacket $ 425; Pants, $ 225 – with a simple white shirt, unbuttoned, and no tie. It looked like an awful lot of suit he wore for himself First Baby Archie Photo-op Returned in May of 2019, and it ticked all types of boxes. Accessible! American! Possibly their wardrobe shopping, which is better for the planet. He might not realize his clothes, but his wife probably did.
All in all, a good thing, really.
