"What will Meghan Markle's wedding dress be like?" That's the question everyone has been asking ever since the couple confirmed their engagement last year. And this morning it was revealed that she has commissioned British designer Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of Givenchy, to design a minimal, sleek wedding gown with a beautiful, sentimental sweeping veil.

The dress is typical of a 1960s Givenchy wedding dress, as it has an open bateau neckline—Audrey Hepburn wore a similar style of neckline for her wedding dress in Funny Face. This sleek, clean gown is in keeping with the traditions of the house but also is modernized with three-quarter length sleeves and the choice of fabric. Kensington Palace says of the chosen silk, "Silk cady has a soft matt lustre whilst the bonding process and pure white colour chosen by Ms. Markle and Ms. Waight Keller bring a fresh modernity to the dress."

As for her jewelry, the new Duchess of Sussex wore two beautiful pieces by Cartier. Specifically, she chose Galanterie de Cartier earrings with white gold and diamonds as well as a Reflection de Cartier bracelet with white gold and diamonds.
