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.'"
