While Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding dress by Claire Waight Keller has inspired some criticism, designer Emilia Wickstead went one step further in her critique of the dress, calling it a knockoff of one of her own bridal dress designs. Wickstead, by the way, is a designer that Kate Middleton wears frequentlyMarkle wore one of her designs during Anzac Day, for the Westminster service:

"Her dress is identical to one of our dresses," Wickstead told The Daily Mail. "Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, 'It’s an Emilia Wickstead dress.'" Wickstead is seemingly referring to this dress, which her team just posted on her bridal Instagram two days ago. Interesting timing:


Wickstead also went on to blast the fit but in much blunter terms than Katy Perry did before. "If you choose a simple design the fit should be perfect," she said. Her wedding dress was quite loose." Also, Wickstead didn’t like the messy bun: "I was like, 'Hold the wisps [of her hair] back—it’s a Royal Wedding for God’s sake.'"

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed!
