The meaning and might of Meghan’s outfit *** It would be simplistic to dismiss the whole act as too simple.
It was not.
It was laden with deep #symbolism resulting from deep #thoughts and brave #choices .
Meghan’s boatneck plain dress suggested we should look somewhere else.
At her #veil first. It was a 5m long train on which she expressly wished to have 53 embroidered flowers, one for each of the 53 Commonwealth countries, that could thus join her at the altar.
It sent a message of embracing foreign cultures.
She wanted us to look at her tiara.
It belonged to Queen Mother Mary of Teck, who saw her first son Edward abdicate to marry American socialite Wallis Simpson. The tiara itself is of flexible platinum and created in 1932 around a brooch dating from 1893.
It spoke of tolerance, flexibility and the will to build something new founded on traditions.
She wanted us to look above all at what she did. Starting her #wedding by walking alone into the #church . She reminded us so that she takes her cause of #empowering women very seriously, since writing letters to the then First Lady #HillaryClinton to raise awareness against a sexist advertisement.
She later wore a magnificent Aquamarine ring by @aspreylondon commissioned by Princess Diana in 1997. Aquamarine (from the Latin word for seawater) was known traditionally as a sailor’s gem, ensuring the safe and prosperous passage across stormy seas. It stands for strength and reconciliation.
As for the dress, it recognised British craftsmanship, and it was a nod to Meghan's acting career. It was made by @clarewaightkeller a British designer at the helm of a quintessentially French Maison like @Givenchy that a longstanding connection with cinema personalities, among them Audrey Hepburn, a former Unicef ambassador.
Meghan said “I do” and she meant a lot more. #meghanmarkle#meghanandharry#royalwedding#fairytale#birdview#andtheylivedhappilyeverafter#clarewaightkeller#givenchy#audreyhepburn#princessdiana#windsor#asprey
This weekend I was in Poznań on the Pyrkon Convention. It's a marvelous time full of laughter, happiness and colorful people. The highlight of my visit though was that I got to meet and talk to the owner of @rebelmadness.pl which I am grateful for!
Tired but charged with positive energy I'm returning to my hobby ... this time in Pink!
