Former “Suits” star Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry on May 19 in the most buzzed about wedding of the year. Rumors are swirling as to what her dress will look like when she walks down the aisle — though it reportedly cost a pretty penny. As a recent television star Markle could draw inspiration from some of the most memorable wedding dresses from the last quarter century on the small screen. Click through our gallery of some of the most beautiful and unique wedding looks worn on TV in the last 25 years.

A couple of dresses on our list already have royal connections. In 2016 the Netflix drama series “The Crown” created a replica of the dress worn by then-Princess Elizabeth (who would soon become Queen Elizabeth II) for her wedding with Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in the premiere episode “Wolferton Splash.” Those costumes were designed by Michele Clapton, who would go

Ken Takakura Wearing Levi in The Yakuza (1974)

The Levi jacket worn by Ken Takakura as Ken Tanaka in Japan set thriller The Yakuza is not Japanese denim. It was not made in Japan but is nonetheless representative of a time when denim as symbol of burgeoning Americana in the East would take off into the stratosphere, and has remained so ever since.

Although Levi products were imported into Japan before the 1970s (Levi International was created in 1965), it was not until mid-decade that a Tokyo office was established. This was in response to growing popularity of all things American in Japan, especially denim and especially Levi. There was no single factor as to why, though most likely American G.I.’s being stationed in Japan after World War II played a part. Their civilian clothing was predominantly denim and khaki based. This caught the eye of Japan’s, until then, heavily regimented youth. Moreover when the G.I.’s

Book Review Everybody Dies A Childrens Book for GrownUps

Everybody Dies the childstyled book by Ken Tanaka and David Ury indeed does appear to be a book actually for children at first glance. The title is a bit morbid sure but it could be a feelgood book about coping with the loss of Grandma or something. But no. Everybody Dies is not for children and doesnt pretend to be It is advertised as A Childrens Book for GrownUps.

Glee Review: Say What You Need To Say

  • TVfanatic
For a show often comprised of caricatures instead of characters, Glee sure knows how to flip the tone from silly to serious with the snap of a finger.

Or the shooting of a gun as the case was on tonight's return episode, "Shooting Star."

In the shadow of real-world issues with guns and violence and school shootings, television shows have to tread carefully to pay respect to the severity of the issues while also staying true to their characters and storytelling. In that regard, tonight's episode of Glee was spot-on. Bravo, Glee

I came into tonight's episode with baited breath. From the synopsis, I guessed that the main story would feature a school shooting. As a former high school teacher, I was nervous to see which direction the writers would take. Would they employ a bullying storyline? Tackle another suicide attempt? Would there be a crazed gunman on the loose

Glee Recap: Fear and Bonding at McKinley High

Glee Recap: Fear and Bonding at McKinley High
Warning: If you haven’t seen tonight’s episode of Glee, you might want to stop reading now. Everyone else, carry on.

Okay, deep breaths. Has everyone recovered enough from tonight’s gut-wrenching Glee that we can get around to the business of discussing it?

For starters, I know a lot of folks will probably ask if it was “too soon” for Ryan Murphy & Co. to tackle a story arc about gunshots ringing out in the hallways of McKinley High a mere four months after the real and unspeakable shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary. I understand that question, but the

TV Review: Hawaii Five-o – Episode 5 – “Nalowale”

“Forgotten/Missing.” That is what Nalowale means in Hawaiian. It also happens to be the title of this episode of the series, which revolves around the teenage daughter of a U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines being found dead off the coast of Waikiki and the other daughter kidnapped. The Governor now tasks Five-0 in finding the abducted sister.

I promise not to go on my usual rant of why this show is the most fun on television right now, but will say this episode is no different in that respect. One of the best scenes in the episode deals with McGarrett and Danno, who are interrogating a douche bag, club prowler after seeing him “rufi” a drink to drug a girl and smuggle her to his partners. In the scene, Danno tells the guy to drink the drink or he’ll break his neck, while McGarrett shoves it down his throat.

"Glee" Episode 201 Recap: "Show Us on the Doll Where the Bad Bieste Touched You"

After a summer full of cosmetic and reproductive surgery, McKinley High's New Directions is back for a new school year.

But first, Glee's own scandal blogger, Jacob Ben Israel (Josh Sussman), starts the new season out with one simple question asked on behalf of the multi-media empire that is his blog: "What did you do over your big gay summer?"

The first person he asks is the object of his extremely creepy affections, Rachel. And I couldn't really listen to her answer because I was so horrified by the big pillowy explosion of lips through which she was speaking. Not even her long, thick false eyelashes and broad swipes of blush could distract me from them. Especially the upper lip. It looked like a shapeless slug under her nose. Who did this to you, Lea?

Anyway, there was nothing gay about Rachel's summer, except, of course, her two gay dads.

Let's start with your role on True Blood as Chow. Did you expect that show to take off as it has?

I came in late in season one, so it was already doing well. I couldn't stop watching it myself and I still watch it On Demand. It's cost me many hours of lost sleep.

Compare that experience to your role as Ken Tanaka on Glee.

As different as can be. The sets are a lot darker on True Blood,
