thoroughly modern meghan

Absolutely divine’, ‘super chic’, ‘she has a royal glow’, those were the first reactions of the Look office on Saturday 19 May as Meghan Markle first emerged, stepping out of the car to walk up the aisle and become Harry’s wife. Her dress? Totally on point. That hair? Some people were on the fence with it, but our Beauty Editor Lydia declared it ‘perfect’. Prince Harry’s face catching sight of his now-wife, priceless. Forget everything else that has happened in 2018; this year has only ever been about one woman and one wedding: here’s looking at you, Meghan Markle. From the moment their engagement was announced on 27 November 2017, the nation has been fully Meghan-obsessed. The Look office? Probably more so. From the focus on her casual, tousled locks (several…

aisle be damned

The pre-wedding debate of who should walk her down the aisle did overshadow much of Meg’ s prep. That’s despite it being a relatively archaic idea. Do you think the idea of being given away is out of date? ‘I’m glad I did it alone’ Says Candice, 30, from Wakefield ‘I chose to walk down the aisle by myself. My dad had offered, but he doesn’t own me. I do everything my way anyway and it seems silly to get someone to hand you over when I’ve already been with my fiancée, Ben, for six years. It felt like an old tradition and I was proud to just walk up alone and have all the attention on me and my dress.’ ‘It’s not for me’ Says Look’s Deputy Beauty Ed, Chloe ‘Having grown up…

the hot spot this week’s best bits

DJ HRH Couldn’t make the big day? Then invest in the official Royal Wedding Album (£9.99), a recording of Harry and Meghan’s nuptials. Although what we all really want to know is which songs Harry threw shapes to at the reception. POSH NEEDS A PA VB is currently recruiting an assistant, required to manage the likes of ‘global travel’, ‘expenses’, but requiring ‘a high level of discretion’ at all times. While we imagine it’s a pretty demanding job, who wouldn’t want a peek at the Beckhams’ credit-card bill? BORN TO BE MILD The special Stranger Things Monopoly has us completely obsessed. Apparently millennials don’t go out any more, according to recent studies. Well, that’s because we’re at home playing games like this.
