I don't mind black dresses if they are not boring...and this one has some interesting details. I hope we get more pics of it.

I'm sure Meghan's dress is lovely close-up. However, as a person who loves colour, I think that if ever there was a time to burst out from TLBD it's a joyous occasion like a wedding. Oh for some yellow, or zingy blue or pink on Meghan, and yes I know she prefers monochrome.

Actually, I like this dress. Its very feminine and I bet Meghan looked simply amazing in it. However, the price tag is a whole lot too steep for me.

I usually love her style but I am not a huge fan. Its a bit too much for me. Maybe it looks better on her then the model, not right now not a huge fan.

I really love this dress! Valentino has been a good brand for Meghan.

Its a private event so I am not going to focus on the cost or UK vs Not.

It would be nice to see this in all its "glory" so to speak. Maybe better pics will come out.

Doubt weíll get a full view picture as itís a private event. Unless she wears it again to a royal event.

The dress is quite hideous, another black evening gown.

From looking at the photo with the model, it appears to me to be very sheer. Does it have pants underneath or is it a skirt?

I have been surprised by some of Meganís choices for big evening events and this latest gown is an example of what I mean. Daytime and early evening cocktail outfits she favours, and looks great in, pared down, clear lines. However, I find these more flamboyant, decorative ( and frequently black), evening gowns less flattering and somehow less sophisticated. Obviously we havenít seen a proper photo, but even with some adaption, I donít like this dress, and certainly not for a wedding, albeit an evening event.

It's not my cup of tea, I guess there are BRF events where this dress would be ok but certainly not at a wedding. Odd choice.

I agree with you Duke, Black is an odd colour choice for a wedding, which is supposed to be a joyous occassion.

I made a comment on Twitter yesterday about how you never wear black to a wedding only to have both Meghan and Sofia of Sweden doing just that right in my face only minutes later. Sofia was even one of three bridesmaids all dressed in black. Although both princesses wore nice dresses the use of colour seems quite strange to me. Apparently I'm the old fart here and things are changing.
Traditionally among the upper- and middle classes of Europe weddings were seen as the only occasion where you were allowed to have a break from mourning so that even those in full mourning (dressed completely in black) refrained from wearing black while among atleast the Scandinavian lower middle- & working classes the use of a black wedding dress was both common and very practical. After the wedding it was used as the lady's one good dress for as long as it held together.

There are other women at the wedding wearing black or the base color of the dress is black

The rules may have simply changed that you are not required to wear a bright color at a wedding.

Eugenie was also in black. Quite a few women were. There was a specific theme so that’s likely why.

I didn't mind the color, but I don't like those billowing sleeves.
