Singer and American Idol judge Katy Perry has criticized Meghan Markle’s wedding dress.
According to Perry, the Duchess of Sussex’s Givenchy gown needed “one more fitting”.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the pop star suggested the royal wedding gown fell short of the bridal look Alexander McQueen designed for the Duchess of Cambridge’s marriage to Prince William in 2011.
“Kate won!” Perry said.
Markle’s dress costs £387, 000 while Kate Middleton’s was £250, 000.
Despite her criticism, Perry said she was “so happy” for the couple.
“I would have done one more fitting,” Perry quipped of the Duchess of Sussex’s Givenchy gown.
“I’m never not going to tell the truth! One more fitting, but I love you.”
The duchess’s wedding dress – which had been kept a closely-guarded secret – was finally revealed when she stepped out at St George’s chapel in Windsor on Saturday.
The pure white, boat neck gown was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, appointed the first female artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy in 2017.
Kensington Palace said the Duchess worked closely with the designer because of her “timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour”.
