In today’s hyper-stylized pop culture, the Dress of the Year now has the potential to also be ‘meme of the year’ and we both latched upon Meghan and Harry’s now-iconic interview with Oprah as the definitive anti-establishment moment that will forever endure in the British collective consciousness,” said the fashion experts.
The interview was of course a huge culture shock around the globe as shocking comments about Archie and his skin tone were discussed and the royal family was forced to respond to the racism allegations made in the interview.
The experts went on to add, “Meghan’s wrap dress by Armani, worn to showcase a divine pregnancy, framed the Duchess in black against the bountiful landscaping of Tyler Perry’s Hollywood garden.”
“This look now, through sheer association with a viral television moment, is firmly ingrained in our pop culture psyche.
