Mendel, Elie Saab and Costarellos. So Meghan Markle was hardly daunted by the prospect of choosing a designer to create a gown for her second wedding. Within weeks of saying yes to Prince Harry’s proposal — as fashion insiders were still speculating if she’d opt for a British designer like Duchess Kate did or continue her trend of donning Canadian labels — the former actress had already made her selection. Says the source of Markle, who commissioned Israeli fashion guru Inbal Dror to send over sketches in December, “The wedding dress designer has been chosen.” 46 THE MAKING OF A | JANUARY 2 9, 201 8 The dress? Chosen. The wedding party? Set.

Meghan’s Done With the ’Gram FROM LEFT: THEIMAGEDIRECT.COM; GF/BAUERGRIFFIN.COM A duchess doth not overshare. On January 9, Markle, who previously shuttered her blog, deleted her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. “As she has not used them for some time,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson told Us, “she has taken the decision to close them.” 48 That’s not the only to-do Markle has crossed off her list. Unfazed by the responsibility of planning an extravaganza that will be viewed by millions, the 36-year-old — who once blogged about fashion, beauty, travel and food for her lifestyle site, The Tig — is confidently putting together the Windsor Castle affair. And though the Buckingham Palace events team is “helping with logistics and security,” says a source, and Markle’s close pal, stylist Jessica Mulroney is offering input, the former Suits star has a “huge say” in every detail, says the source. As the calendar edges toward May 19, Markle has made decisions on decor — it will be clean and simple with “subtle touches of color,” says the source, as both she and Harry, 33, feel the beauty of the castle’s St. George’s Chapel shouldn’t be hidden — and food. (The menu, says a source, will be “less British” than the lamb, potatoes and veggies Kate and Prince William served.) “With the wedding, they both want to do things their way,” explains a source close to the couple. “While they will always be mindful of traditions, the day is ultimately about them and what they want to do.” Still, making those choices can be tricky — even more so when the groom is fifth in line for the British throne. Us examines Markle’s lingering quandaries. | JANUARY 29, 2018 Markle’s escort is still up in the air. When her Mexico-based father, Thomas, initially said he couldn’t attend, citing health issues, Markle asked mom Doria Ragland to step in. But now, says a source, “Tom has said he is getting his passport renewed and doing all he can to make it.” And since the retired lighting director has expressed “a huge desire to be there and walk with her,” says the source, “if he can attend, he will be the one to do the job.” As for the rest of her family, an insider says “a small number” of relatives from her mom’s side will receive invites, with half-siblings Thomas Jr. and Samantha Grant on the “no” list. But Grant, reportedly covering the vows as a correspondent for Good Morning Britain, tells Us she’ll be in England May 19: “I will be proud to be there in whatever capacity.” Is Kate in the bridal party? There’s only room for one duchess at the altar. While Kate “will be there as a guest,” says a source, Princess Charlotte, 2, will serve as one of four flower girls alongside Mulroney’s daughter Ivy. (Prince George scored the title of page boy.) Harry has also tapped William to be his best man, while Markle has named a maid of honor. (Though British bridal parties are normally made up of children, a source says Markle was “keen” to include this American tradition.) A source says Markle asked the “very close friend” to be at her side “just a few days after getting engaged.” How A-list is the guest list? Quite. Expect Markle’s Hollywood pals Serena Williams, Priyanka Chopra, fashion designer Misha Nonoo and Suits costars Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht to mingle with foreign dignitaries. Because the wedding is not a state occasion, says an insider, the couple is “under no pressure” to include particular leaders. Translation: Donald Trump needn’t rent a tux. Still, Harry has invited Barack and Michelle Obama (who have helped with his annual charity event the Invictus Games) and Markle intends to ask Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie, who gave her advice about dealing with the glaring spotlight. Will Harry’s exes make the cut? Cressida Bonas shouldn’t expect an invite.

Kate may have handled her own day-of beauty, but Markle — who told Us in 2013 that “a great hair and makeup team” are her red carpet secret — will bring in the pros. “She has a trusted glam team she worked with for years on Suits,” says a source, “and the current plan is to bring the same names in.” performance by Ellie Goulding) wrapped at 3 a.m.!

While “there is absolutely no pressure for them to have children,” stresses a source, “both are keen to start a family in the future.” • Does she get to have a bachelorette bash? Sort of. In place of a hen night, Markle will throw a “low-key” unisex get-together for her nearest and dearest. “Think: somewhere out in London, good food and drink, a little music,” says a source. “It won’t be wild.” Do they register for gifts?

On the Road Again Though the postceremony luncheon will be tame, Markle and Harry want to make the dinner and dancing portion of their evening “as fun as possible,” says a source. After digging into a Table Talk–catered menu that “reflects both of their tastes,” says the source, guests will be entertained by a series of live acts.

And that includes the idea of romance. The actress, who has been a single mom to Matilda, now 12, since her ex Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose in 2008, told WSJ. magazine last year why she never wed: “I have not gotten married because I have not had a person to whom I would.” Until now.

And on January 7, she walked the carpet at the Golden Globes with a new accessory: a heartshaped diamond on that finger. She brushed off the bauble as “beautiful jewelry” when asked, but an insider confirms it’s an engagement ring. “It happened before the holidays,” notes the insider. And nearly 10 years to the date that she lost Ledger. Having struggled to recover from that trauma — “It took her a long time to get over him,” says one source — the actress had been cautious about who she let in. “She wants a good guy and a stable family life,” says the source. “I’m happy she’s moved on.” FINDING THE ONE As a Harvard Business School graduate who runs ffar from Hollywood circles, Youmans has proven himself a steady partner for Williams Wi illiiam — and d a good influence for Matilda, which is a priority for the Greatest Showman actress. Over the New Year’s holiday, the trio vacationed together in the Bahamas. As Williams stretched out to read on a beach chair, Youmans ducked into the waves with Matilda, says an onlooker. “They were splashing around and seemed very comfortable.” The idyllic scene is one Williams never envisioned. When Ledger died, “Michelle was totally focused on giving Matilda the best upbringing possible,” says a confidant. “Given what Heath died from, it was a wake-up call to her.” For years, she resisted dating. When she began, says another source, she wasn’t looking for hookups: “Every person she gets involved with is someone she can entertain the possibility of spending the rest of her life with.” Youmans visited the actress in Rome (where she was filming) July 14. Since then, Williams has daa dated director Spike Jonze, actor Jason Segel and, most recently, author Jonathan Safran Foer, but all those r relationships ended with-out fanfare. As Williams o noted a year ago, “The n romantic idea of meeting your person and having a storybook family life that looks like the model you grew up with — that doesn’t really exist for me.” But Williams has softened with Youmans. She has admitted that as single parent, “it’s hard to romanticize romance . . . because you have a practical understanding that you can do it by yourself.” But ca now she knows she doesn’t no have to go it alone — h aand her engagement proves it. “Michelle p wouldn’t get in a relaw tionship for publicity, she doesn’t need to,” says the source. “She believes there • is something there.” That Huge Pay Gap Williams certainly didn’t earn, well, all the money in the world for reshoots of the Golden Globe–nominated film.

To stem the tide of criticism, Wahlberg announced January 14 he was donating his sum to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Williams’ name. “If we truly envision an equal world, it takes equal effort and sacrifice,” she stated. “Today is one of the most indelible days of my life.” USM AG A ZIN E.COM | 51 RUNNING THE GAUNTLET ARE SKIMPY CLOTHES REQUIRED?

The first “are those who show up to compete and have an actual shot at reaching a final.” The others fall under what he calls the “I’m just happy to be here” group. Those competitors, he says, “are there strictly for camera time.” That group may be growing. With Vendettas showcasing stars from Big Brother and U.K. shows Geordie Shore and Ex on the Beach, “the floodgates have opened,” says Devenanzio. “At this point, the only criterion for being cast is, ‘Have you ever had a drunken hookup on national television?’” 52 | JANUARY 2 9, 201 8 BURNING DO THEY HAVE REAL JOBS?

Crime of Fashion Ricky Martin fights for social justice in the new Gianni Versace TV series 62 | JANUARY 2 9, 201 8 TELEVISION R icky Martin was a closeted 25-year-old Latin singer who had yet to break into the mainstream when the openly gay Gianni Versace was killed in front of his Miami home on July 15, 1997. Twenty-one years later, the Grammy winner is stepping inside that mansion as the designer’s partner, Antonio D’Amico, in FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (Wednesdays, 10 p.m.). “I needed to be part of this,” says Martin, wed to painter Jwan Yosef. “The ups and downs, the frustrations, the fear of losing your career because you’re gay is there.” The dad of 9-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino lets Us in. Q: Back in the ’90s, how familiar were you with Versace? At that moment, I had a campaign with Giorgio Armani. Even though the Versaces invited me to their fashion shows, I couldn’t go. Mr. Armani would have been like, “What are you doing there?” But I knew how sophisticated Mr. Versace ce was. The way they lived was intense. And the way ay this incredible production on is bringing that to life is brilliant, even scary. “The first scene that I shot with Penélope I was covered in blood,” he recalls. Q: How did you shake Antonio off every night? Driving home, I opened the windows and screamed and cried and laughed. I immersed myself completely. I told my family to please back me up because this is as serious as it gets in the sense of the amount of emotions I dealt with. Q: Your husband’s reaction? He was making love to two different people every night: “Who are you today?” Depends on the accent! Darren Criss plays killer Andrew Cunanan. Q:: What was your first fiirst meeting with Antonio like? I couldn’t talk to Antonio before because the network advised me not to. Talking to him was emotional. I had tears and I was choking. We talked about the love he had for Gianni. That is something that I really want to bring out. There’s a lot of injustice, but the love they had was indestructible. Q: On a personal level, how did this story affect you? I’m a gay man that lived in the closet for many years. To see the process of Gianni Gi ia actually coming out iiss something that moved me. Even though everybody me knew about the relationship kn PARI DUKOVIC/FX; JEFF DALY/FX (3) with Antonio, the fact that they couldn’t be as open as I am right now with my relationship is something that really frustrates me. Q: Penélope Cruz plays Gianni’s sister Donatella. Pick up any tips from her? Where do I start? She gave Whe me b beautiful advice every day. We cried a lot. We laughed a lot. It’s incredlaug ible how ho this tragedy has brought people together. Q: How does this differ from performing on stage? I can be in front of an audience of 100,000 and the vulnerability is amazing. But there is something about this story. Something about how respectful we have to be about every decision, how we talk, the mannerisms of Southern Italians. I have no words to describe how powerful this has been. Q: Focusing on acting now? For sure. Music will never stop, though. We can do acting, we can do music, we can do dancing.

I felt just like him when I moved schools.” Now, he’s starring in the film! Ü As a 10-yearold in England, Bonneville was captivated by Clive King’s classic: “Like the protagonist, I had a den at the end of my garden and it was there that the story of Barney and Stig definitely, possibly, maybe took place.” Ü His son, Felix, now 16, found Andy Stanton to be a riot. While reading the series — about an eccentric old man who lives in a place called Lamonic Bibber — says the star, “giggles became guffaws as he immersed himself in the stories.” Ü The Downton Abbey alum insists he’s not biased toward this David Walliams story.

In Fox’s new workplace comedy LA to Vegas (Tuesdays, 9 p.m.), Matula serves as cynical flight attendant Ronnie to Dylan McDermott’s egotistical Captain Dave on the regular 40-minute commuter trip from, yes, L.A. to Vegas.

Q: Ronnie flirts with Ed Weeks’ passenger, Colin. Any chance of a romance off the plane? KM They are definitely in a cat and mouse chase. He’s got a son, so he goes back and forth to see him and his ex-wife. I don’t want to give it all away. But, they’re in close quarters every weekend. How are they not going to make a connection? Q: Any prospects for Dave? DM Dave is the type of guy who got his heart broken a long time ago and he’s still recovering. I think he’s given up. He tries, but he knows that he’s a perpetual bachelor. So, we’ll see him try but, in his heart, he lives in his Winnebago. Q: What have been your craziest in-flight experiences? KM I was getting off and there was a woman who just kept screaming, “Open the doors!” We were all like, “Do you think the attendants are holding you hostage?” DM I had a guy next to me take off his shoes and start working on his feet with the toenail clipper.
