The Royal Wedding was nothing short of spectacular especially because of Meghan Markle’s gorgeous gown but the internet thinks it looks exactly like the one Jennifer Lopez wore in The Wedding Planner.
Meghan opted to wear a stunning Givenchy gown which many people immediately recognized as being oddly similar to the dress worn by J.Lo in the 2001 film and people were quick to call out the comparison on Twitter.
Both dresses were similar in the fact that they had bateau necklines, a simple A-line silhouette and three quarter sleeves.
