The longtime Vogue editor-in-chief has finally shared what she thought about the Duchess of Sussex’s stunning wedding dress.
In a new Vogue video series called ‘Go Ask Anna’, the famous editor answered questions from strangers – including one about Meghan.
“I think she’s amazing,” Wintour responded.
“The royal wedding had the whole world watching,” she added. “I think that her [wedding dress] choice was brilliant. It was sophisticated, it was chic, it was grown up. It was an English designer, albeit one that was working for a French house, which in a way was a message to the world: ‘Yes, I’m from somewhere else, but I belong’.”

The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition #RoyalWedding
Wintour also praised Meghan in the interview for her decision to walk down the aisle herself.
On her wedding day back in May, the Duchess wore a boat neck, silk long sleeve gown designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy which has quickly became one of the most talked about wedding dresses of all time.
Although it was speculated that Meghan would wear Princess Diana’s tiara, she instead wore one loaned to her by the Queen.
The 37-year-old later changed into a Stella McCartney gown for the wedding reception.
Wintour also responded to the recent rumours surrounding Meghan and her supposed ‘diva’ behaviour.
