Royal Wedding Fashion: Oprah Almost Commits Big Faux Pas


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding was graced with prominent personalities, and one of them was Oprah, who, fortunately, was able to avoid a fashion blunder prior the event.

Anyone who is invited to the royal wedding is both a boon and a bane. Getting an invite means one gets to witness the exchange of vows of Markle and Prince Harry, but along with that luxury is the thought that one needs to dress appropriately for the event, and Oprah certainly pulled a rabbit out of the hat a day before the special day.

Oprah wore a baby pink dress and matched it with the same shade of hat. However, it wasn't what she initially intended to wear. Apparently, she was supposed to wear a Stella McCartney beige dress for the royal wedding but then she realized something that's going to break one major unwritten rule in weddings.

New Dress

Her beige dress would appear white in photos. For those who are not aware, white is reserved for the bride, if in case the bride indeed decides to wear white. Now, attending a wedding and wearing white could be perceived as upstaging the woman at the altar, so it's a fashion no-no to wear white dresses.

Luckily for Oprah, she realized this boo-boo a day before Markle and Prince Harry's wedding. Kudos as well to McCartney and her team who managed to make (yup, they created a new one) another dress, this time in blush pink, in a span of 24 hours.

"I would like to thank the Stella McCartney team and her team for working all night long to get this dress finished because we had dressgate. Wrong color. Now we got the right color," Oprah said in an Instagram post.

The 64-year-old was all praise for the acclaimed designer, and for her Philip Treacy hat, Oprah revealed it was from more than 10 years ago, which wasn't obvious because it totally matched her dress. The head dress was just newly adorned with feathers.

Oprah is a quick thinker, to say the least, as she dodged a major fashion faux pas. Also, McCartney's brilliance shone through even during dire times. That's not all, she managed to fix the supposed-to-be-mess even in a limited time.

Oprah wasn't the only one who made the right decision to wear a McCartney. Amal Clooney was also a client, who wore an eye-catching marigold dress to the wedding. Even the bride herself opted for her design for the wedding's reception.
