What major Royal Wedding rule did Oprah almost break?

The extra-ness of Oprah knows no bounds – but even she follows the rules when it comes to someone else’s big day.

Oprah very nearly wore an almost white outfit to the royal wedding, which as everyone knows is a big no-no when it comes to tradition.

The world-renowned talk show host had chosen a beige dress for the wedding before realising that the outfit was going to look white in photographs.

Fortunately, she managed to change the outfit within 24 hours with help from Stella McCartney whose team made her a new dress in blush pink in record time.

Oprah took to Instagram to thank McCartney and her team for working on the dress all night long to get it done on time. She referred to the incident as ‘Dressgate.’


According to Harpers Bazaar, Oprah also took a Philip Treacy hat she's had for five years and added some feathers to create the perfect look to go with her new outfit.

She also wasn't the only one who wore Stella McCartney to the ceremony as Amal Clooney wore a mustard yellow dress by the designer while after the ceremony, Meghan Markle switched to a Stella McCartney gown for her reception.
