44. Meghan Markle’s designer reveal
Before the wedding, there were rumors that either Erdem, Alexander McQueen, or Ralph & Russo would design Meghan’s gown, but it was Claire Waight Keller who received the honor.

Keller was sworn to absolute secrecy. Not even her husband knew that she had designed the dress until the morning of the wedding!
