Actress Janina Gavankar and friend of Meghan Markle said designers refused to dress her for the Royal wedding. Janina Gavankar wore a lovely tangerine-colored dress and a black fascinator, which she paired with Sigerson Morrison heels and a Yves Saint Laurent clutch. She took to her instagram to talk about the dress;“Thank you to everyone inquiring about today’s dress! Here’s the real story,” Gavankar wrote on Instagram Sunday. “As many do for events of this kind, my stylist @NikiSchwan & I reached out to designers and showrooms. … No one was responsive. Luckily, @westerncostumecompany generously opened the doors to their private vintage archive, and we chose this 1930’s dress and 1940s hat…”
“Strange to be talking fashion on a powerful day of love and union.
Her stylist Niki Schwan also commented on the Janina’s style; “To be clear, we requested several designer brands & showrooms (for her to wear to the wedding) who either denied us or just ignored us. & obviously, this is not something you “shop” for, as we were committed to creating something special and unique.” “I kinda love being denied sometimes, it just forces me to work harder, smarter, more creatively & continuously think outside the box! Which is what styling is really about. This trio of women KILLED this moment, with their Royal Wedding STRUT (Squad goals for real!) and @janina is one of the single most searched names of those who attended the wedding, due to this moment & we are overwhelmed & grateful by the response to her look. (Too bad to all the brands and showrooms that denied us). Keep on keepin on y’all. Rejection is Gods protection, I always say!”
She did look great though right?
