On the big day, Meghan revealed her dress to millions after months of speculation about the design.
The bateau neckline dress was made from double-bonded silk cady and was worn with Queen Mary’s tiara and a 16-foot-long veil.
However, people were quick to make comparisons to wedding dresses of the past. Our favorite: the dress Jennifer Lopez wore in the 2001 rom-com The Wedding Planner.
During the film’s wedding scene, J.Lo’s character wears a very similar dress to Meghan’s Givenchy creation, and people were quick to notice.
In the film, J.Lo plays Mary, a wedding planner who, after years of organising other people’s nuptials, focuses on tying the knot herself.

Both dresses feature the same boat neckline and 3/4-length sleeves. Even the brides’ hair/veil composition looks similar.
Given Givenchy’s fashion pedigree, we’re chalking this up to pure coincidence. Still, there are worse people to imitate…
Meanwhile, others have compared the dress to the one Princess Mary wore for her 2004 wedding to Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik, and that worn by Princess Angela of Liechtenstein in 2000.
