Last weekend, American actress Meghan Markle wed Great Britain’s Prince Harry in the presence of family and friends. Celebs including Oprah Winfrey, Victoria and David Beckham, Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams and others dressed to the nines for the royal wedding. Although Idris Elba was also sharp as a tack, his fiancée, Sabrina Dhowre, was the victim of a bit of backlash for her all-Gucci-everything outfit.

Social media came down on the model for rocking the designer from head to toe and for choosing a relatively casual look in comparison to other wedding guests.
The social event of the year and Idris fiancée went dressed like someone who just got their tax refund back smh.
