Meghan Markle is considering a dress conceived by Israeli designer and celebrity stylist Inbal Dror for her wedding to Prince Harry next year. The actress has reportedly been sent a sketch by the designer, who previously created a look worn for Beyonce when she presented at the 2016 Grammy Awards and a body suit she sported during her Formation World Tour. She also counts Naomi Watts among her celebrity clients. The news, reported by the Jerusalem Post, is a surprise considering royal brides typically wear pieces by British designers. Dror's daring looks range from figure-hugging gowns to ensembles with plunging necklines, a departure from the 36-year-old's reserved style.

In an interview with Elle magazine in 2016, Dror noted the sultry nature of her dress concepts. "I think the bold style," she said on what makes her gowns stand out. "It's sexy, and I love to highlight a woman's form." She also shared the excitement she experiences while being part of a bride's special day. "I loved the feeling it gave me seeing a bride's face when she wore the most special dress of her life," she said. "It's an honour and a thrill to design such an important dress."

Dror previously worked for Roberto Cavalli before launching her own label in her native Israel in 2010, and she began releasing wedding dresses in 2014. She later opened a flagship store in Tel Aviv and her designs are widely available in boutiques throughout the U.S. Dror's work is less known in the U.K. Royal publicists at Kensington Palace have not commented on Markle's choice of dress for the wedding ceremony and Dror has yet to make a public statement on the rumour she's involved.
