While Meghan Markle's wedding gown has received a lot of positive reviews from fans—Claire Waight Keller of Givenchy designed the boatneck style gown with three-quarter sleeves (opens in new tab), which many have called "timeless (opens in new tab)" and "elegant (opens in new tab)"—the dress has received some criticism for its fit. And, according to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab)one designer has pointed out the similarity to one of her own designs.

"Her dress is identical to one of our dresses," Wickstead said, according to the Daily Mail (opens in new tab). "Apparently a lot of commentators were saying, 'It’s an Emilia Wickstead dress.'" Wickstead's bridal department posted this picture on their Instagram two days ago:

Daily Mail also reports Wickstead critiqued the fit of the dress (as Katy Perry did before her). "If you choose a simple design the fit should be perfect. Her wedding dress was quite loose," she reportedly said (opens in new tab). "I was like, Hold the wisps [of her hair] back—it’s a Royal Wedding for God’s sake."

Meghan herself seems to be a fan of Wickstead's designs. The newest royal recently wore a two-piece outfit from Wickstead's collection while attending a special service at dawn honoring Anzac Day (opens in new tab) in April.
