Jessica Mulroney certainly knows a gorgeous dress when she sees one, and Priyanka Chopra’s stunning wedding ensemble is the latest to get the wedding stylist’s stamp of approval! Though the Duchess of Sussex wasn’t able to be there to see her Hollywood BFF say “I do,” the royal’s bestie happily gushed over the bride’s ethereal Ralph Lauren ensemble in Priyanka’s Instagram comments.
The mother of three had a perfectly short and sweet message for the newlyweds, saying, “Perfect dress choice. Love to the happy couple.” The intricately embroidered and beaded dress, which took 1,826 hours to make, pairs a strapless column design with a long-sleeved, high-collar overlay and a 75-foot veil. The 36-year-old gave her gown an extra-special touch by having romantic words and phrases, plus her husband’s name and wedding date, embroidered on the fabric. The former Bollywood star’s stylist, Mimi Cuttrell, responded with a heart emoji.
Jessica knows a thing or two about making weddings magical. The Canadian stylist has long been in the business of making brides’ dreams come true in her work with the Toronto outpost of Kleinfeld and Wedding Vacations by Sunwing. Most recently, however, her royal friendship took her across the pond to London, where she helped Meghan with her royal wedding to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle – and watched her eight-year-old twin boys, Brian and John, and five-year-old daughter Ivy walk down the aisle.
The fashion maven has been friends with Duchess Meghan for many years now after first meeting when the former actress moved to Toronto to film her hit paralegal TV show Suits. Jessica and hubby Ben Mulroney were recently in Australia during Prince Harry and Meghan’s royal tour, where she was surely the perfect sartorial sounding board, and the Sussexes reportedly kept the paparazzi at bay during visits in Toronto by holing up at the Mulroney home.
For Duchess Meghan’s engagement phots, Jessica is said to have picked out the stunning Ralph & Russo gown which she wore to pose beside Prince Harry on the grounds of Frogmore House. Since then, Good Morning America’s newest fashion contributor may have had a hand in some of Meghan’s biggest sartorial wins, especially when there’s a Canadian brand involved. With the Sussexes moving out of the city to make Frogmore Cottage in Windsor their first family home, perhaps a visit from the Mulroneys is in their future – and newlyweds Priyanka and Nick could stop by, too!
