As expected, the wedding of Hollywood Harry and Meghan Markle brought out a sparkling array of celebrities in their best-behavior finery. Some chose to go big, some chose to lie low, but everyone came correct, which is to be lauded. No disasters on this red carpet.
No red carpet, for that matter.
Carey Mulligan (in Erdem) and Marcus Mumford
LOVE her dress. It’s pretty, romantic, and photogenic without being attention-seeking. It looks great on her. Not sure why she’d pick a pure white bag to go with it, though.
He cleans up well.
Elton John and David Furnish
Everything seems to be in order here, down to the rose-colored glasses.
Gina Torres in Costarellos
We LOVE this. Everything is on point for a royal wedding, but with a slight twist. The pretty floral dress is sleek and sheer. The hat, sort of halfway between a fedora and panama, has an Afro-Cuban feel to it. It’s a great example of taking a basic look and making it your own.
Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre (in Gucci)
Button your damn jacket, Idris. The Queen is arriving. LOVING her accessories game.
James Corden and Julia Carey
Credit should be paid to those celebrities and their spouses/plus ones who showed up in tastefully low-key ensembles. We have little to say about them, but credit to them.
Patrick J. Adams and Troian Bellisario
Case in point. They look perfectly appropriate and mildly stylish. We don’t mean that in a backhanded way, but they’re not here for themselves and it’s to their credit that they didn’t dress like they were.
Abigail Spencer (in Alessanda Rich) and Priyanka Chopra (in Vivienne Westwood)
Which isn’t to say we aren’t grateful to those celebs who, knowing they weren’t likely to receive many other royal wedding invitations in their lives, took the opportunity to get some style on. Miss Priyanka is serving up “Murder on the Orient Express” realness while Miss Abigail looks like the shop girl ingenue in a ’30s musical.
Come to think of it, the 1930s seems to be roughly the default style for royal weddings, doesn’t it?
Sarah Rafferty in Lanvin
Gorgeous. We don’t even like bell cuffs (and we’re not convinced on the color mismatch), but we love that she chose something with some mild drama to it. It’s not terribly attention-seeking or anything like that, but it does stand out slightly. The navy blue keeps things chic.
Serena Williams (in Atelier Versace) and Alexis Ohanian
She had our second-favorite hat of the day after Oprah. We don’t love this color, but she can work it just fine. It’s the fit that impresses here. Like a glove.
Tom Hardy and Charlotte Riley (in The Vampire’s Wife)
The hat and dress are too coordinated and the latter has one ruffle too many. He’s looking fine.
David and Victoria Beckham (in Victoria Beckham)
We can’t say we’re feeling her pop-of-color shoes, but the rest of her look is drop-dead chic. Yes, it’s a bit serious and funereal in tone, but that’s to be expected with her. Also to be expected: him showing up looking delicious.
