Why Meghan’s wedding dress is likely to be a 'classic and simple' gown inspired by Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy (and NOT a traditional choice like Kate’s)
- Meghan, 36, has called Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy's dress her 'everything?goals'
- She said gown worn by her Suits character Rachel was not her 'personal style'
- Actress said her style was more 'relaxed', adding she'd like a 'modern twist'
- She also named?Delphine Manivet and Elie Saab as bridal designers she likes
She and Prince Harry may have only just announced their engagement, but there is already a huge amount of speculation about what she'll be wearing on the big day.
And now, it has emerged that Meghan Markle?has previously hinted at what her dream wedding dress would be.
Before she was revealed to be Prince Harry's girlfriend, the actress, 36, described in an interview how her ideal gown as something that is 'classic and simple', calling Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy's wedding dress her 'everything goals'.
Meanwhile, she also said the fairytale gown worn by her Suits character Rachel Zane was 'not my personal style', saying that she'd prefer something more 'relaxed'.
This suggests that Meghan's wedding dress is likely to be rather different to the Duchess of Cambridge's traditional gown by Alexander McQueen, which she wore to walk down the aisle in 2011.?
Meghan Markle, 36, has previously described her dream wedding dress as something 'classic and simple' - describing the gown worn by her Suits character as 'not my personal style'?
Speaking in an interview with Glamour?about her dream dress, Meghan 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.'
Explaining how she wouldn't choose a gown like the Anne Barge dress worn by her character in season 5, she added: 'It's not my personal style, because I'm a lot more relaxed than Rachel but I love that I got to play dress up in this gown.'
Meghan also cited her the minimalist white gown worn by Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy on her wedding day in 1996 as her all-time favourite celebrity wedding dress.?

Carolyn Bessette: John F. Kennedy Jr's stunning bride ?
Carolyn Bessette was a publicist working for Calvin Klein when she met John F. Kennedy Jr in 1992.
The pair began dating in 1994, before moving into an apartment in Tribeca together the following year.
Despite their high-profile status, they somehow managed to keep their wedding a complete secret from the press.
On September 21, 1996, the couple tied the knot in a candlelit ceremony in a chapel on Georgia Island.
Carolyn, then 30, wore a minimalist white gown by Narciso Rodriguez, who was at the time a little known designer.
Less than three years after their wedding day, she and?John F. Kennedy Jr, along with her sister Lauren, tragically died in a?plane crash off the coast of Martha's Vineyard.?
The classic dress worn by John F. Kennedy Jr's bride was designed by American designer?Narciso Rodriguez, who was little known at the time, suggesting he could potentially be in the running to design Meghan's own gown.?
The actress also listed some of her favourite wedding dress labels, including French designer Delphine Manivet and Greek-based designer Christos Costarellos.?
She declared herself a fan of both Elie Saab and J. Mendel, who may also be in the running to make her dress for the big day.
Meghan's dress is also unlikely to be like Kate's traditional Alexander McQueen dress, after describing her style as 'relaxed'?
Other designers believed to be potential contenders include Antonio Berardi, Erdem and Jenny Packham.
Meghan's remarks during the interview with Glamour also suggest her now husband-to-be Harry won't be getting a glimpse of her gown before their big day at Windsor Castle in the spring.
Despite describing herself as 'very superstitious', she said she did not believe it was bad luck - but did say she would 'prefer sticking with traditions'.?
