On Saturday, billions of people from around the world dropped what they were doing to watch Prince Harry marry American actress Meghan Markle. The wedding was historic, welcoming Markle as the first bi-racial member of the British royal family. While the ceremony was unlike anything the monarchy had ever encountered, there was one thing that set tongues wagging more than any other - the bride's dress. Katy Perry has weighed in to throw some shade Meghan's way.
The Givenchy gown was designed by Clare Waight Keller, featuring a simplistic cut with three-quarter length sleeves and an off the shoulder neckline. The silk dress was classic and differed greatly from Kate Middleton's lace number in 2011, dividing the opinion of the internet. Some thought it was badly fitted and too simplistic, not doing Meghan justice, while others thought it perfectly encapsulated her chic style. Perry was in the first camp, and didn't hold back when asked her opinion during night one of the American Idol finals.
"I would've done one more fitting," Perry said when asked by ET's Lauren Zima. "I'm never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you," she professed in support of Markle. She added that she believed Kate Middleton "won" with her Alexander McQueen dress. Despite her criticism, the singer went on to say that she supported Meghan as a woman and loved her humanitarian work. When asked his opinion on everything, fellow judge Lionel Richie was much less controversial, recalling when William and Harry were first born to their parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles. Seeing them grow up to be family men is something he "loves".
Perry wasn't the only one with strong opinions on Meghan's dress. The world of Twitter erupted as they watched the blushing bride walk down the aisle to marry her prince at the ceremony in Windsor. The fitting of the dress was heavily critiqued while others jumped to her defense, speculating she may have lost weight in the final days leading up to the big event.
What did you think? Was it a dress fit for a duchess or a dress that should've been ditched? Let us know in the comments.
