Did Meghan Markle Channel Audrey's Hepburn Bridal Look?
When we think of wedding dresses from the big screen, one of our absolute favorites is the elegant gown Audrey Hepburn downed in the 1957 film Funny Face, which starred Hepburn and Fred Astaire.
On her big day, Meghan Markle wore a Givenchy gown by British designer Clare Waight Keller with a collarbone-framing boat neck, reminiscent of Hepburn's Funny Face frock, as The TODAY Show pointed out on instagram.
See the resemblance? A long-time friend of Hubert De Givenchy, and the designer's muse, Hepburn wore many timeless pieces by the fashion star throughout the years. Markle's choice to wear a minimalist Givenchy gown for her nuptials indeed may be a hat-tip to the beloved film icon. Some also speculate that her dress was an intentional homage to American icon, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, who donned a minimalist look when marrying John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996.

In an interview with Glamour, Markle said, “Classic and simple is the name of the game, perhaps with a modern twist. I personally prefer wedding dresses that are whimsical or subtly romantic." She added of her favorite celebrity wedding dress, “Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. Everything goals.”
Chic and classy, the glowing, confident bride certainly walked down the aisle in a way that would make Hepburn herself proud.
