If you've ever made a major fashion faux pas, fear not. It happens to the poshest among us.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey proved that point on perhaps the most important day to mind manners. You don't need to be an expert in the British royal family to know that etiquette is a big deal. And if you've ever seen a wedding, you likely know how important tradition can be. Combining these two factors gave Prince Harry's recent wedding a huge international spotlight.
Plus, Megan Markle, the American princess to be, sparked her own attention prior to the ceremony. The invitation list read like a Who's Who of the world's most influential people. One of those people almost made a major fashion flub. If you missed any of the details, we've got your covered.
Here's how Oprah almost made a big fashion mistake at Windsor Castle
The television host acknowledged that she almost broke etiquette with the dress choice. If it weren’t for the intervention of a designer, she might have arrived in the wrong color. She included an open admission of the narrowly avoided fashion disaster in an Instagram post.
Thank you @stellamccartney ! Realized Friday morning the beige dress I was planning to wear to Royal ceremony would photograph too “white” for a wedding.Her team did this overnite. Hat is vintage @philiptreacy been in my closet since 2005 with new feathers. OMG was this an extraordinary day! #Harry&Meghan #RoyalWedding #Lovedeveryminute
Better to discover a fashion mistake late than never.
Winfrey realized her error the day before the wedding. She wrote that the beige color "would photograph too 'white' for a wedding."
The Instagram post included a special thanks to designer Stella McCartney.
"Her team did this overnite," she wrote.
The 64-year-old entertainer also mentioned her vintage Philip Treacy hat. Regardless of any near fashion misses, she described it as "an extraordinary day!"
There's a reason Oprah is one of the world's most beloved celebrities
The humble way she announced a fashion mistake resonated with many of her fans. She could have attempted to downplay or ignore this entire situation. But she recognized those who assisted at the last minute. And the result was an ensemble that allowed her to resonate without overshadowing the bride.
