Her every fashion choice has been tracked around the world – ever since she went public with Britain’s red-haired Prince, Harry – and the former Duchess of Sussex isn’t shy about switching things up, time and time again she’s proved that she brings her fashion and style A-game to every event.
From preppy chic to old school Hollywood glamour, this gorgeous lady can pull off any look, so take a look at some of our favourite fashion and style moments from the former Duchess of Sussex to date, below.
1. Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview February 2021
Okay … we know that the actual interview with Oprah Winfrey was probably what most people were focusing on (it sure was explosive!), but we just can’t help loving this sleek silk Armani dress, with an embroidered lotus flower detailing on the right-hand shoulder, that Meghan had chosen to wear for the occasion. The former Duchess of Sussex channelled her inner movie star for her first TV appearance since ditching her Royal Family role, opting for a much darker set of makeup than her usual one, as well as a chic sleeked back hairdo that oozes glamour and we’re just here for it! For any Meghan Markle lovers, fashion brand H&M has come out with their own version of the gorgeous frock, so now fans can literally pinch some of this leading lady’s style.
2. Meghan Markle does Monochrome October 2019
For a gender equality roundtable discussion with the former Duchess of Sussex in 2019, Meghan Markle chose to colour block her outfit. She sported a burgundy Hugo Boss pencil skirt tucked over a wine-coloured V-neck sweater and heels in a similar plum shade. The Duchess looked business chic as she sat down to discuss the important cause of gender equality. Meghan has been a fan of colour blocking for a number of occasions, she even did a similar look in green for a previous engagement in 2018.
3. Meghan Markle attends Mountbatten Music Festival March 2020
The former Duchess of Sussex was a vision in red, as she coordinated with husband, Prince Harry, for one of their last royal engagements before taking a step back from the Royal Family and their duties, they attended the Mountbatten Music Festival together. This is one of our absolute favourite fashion moments of the former Duchess of Sussex as she truly brought her fashion A-game. The elegant silhouette and scarlet shade of red of the Safiyaa cape dress do wonders for the former Suits actress, and really showed off her ability to switch it up from day to evening glamour.
4. Meghan Markle show’s off thrifty side in September 2019
Though it seemed like a fairly simple look, Meghan Markle looked absolutely gorgeous for her South Africa tour in 2019. Though she tended to opt for fashion pieces from local designers, this particular look with the floor-length striped khaki dress was a piece she had previously worn on her last royal tour of Sydney’s Bondi Beach. We love that the glamorous former Duchess used her thrifty skills and opted to recycle one of her former looks and revive it for this tour, and we’re totally smitten with this down-to-earth look. Meghan wore the maxi dress to attend a reception held at the British High Commissioner’s residence in South Africa.
5. Meghan Markle’s iconic return to the UK March 2020
After weeks of staying out of the public eye to try and defuse the growing tension that their announcement to leave the Royal Family had caused, Meghan Markle and her Prince made a big return to the UK scene by attending Endeavour Fund Awards, an annual ceremony that honours wounded servicemen and women. Meghan look was just iconic, as she opted for a turquoise Victoria Beckham dress, black pumps, and a Stella McCartney clutch.
Meghan Markle is a true fashion icon, and now that she isn’t restrained by royal rules and protocol, the former Duchess of Sussex is able to have more fun with her fashion style and choices. More recently, Meghan has been favouring more down to earth and casual looks, as she settles into her new life in Montecito, Santa Barbara. Take a look at the latest snap of the former Duchess, sporting a wicked bedhead and a “Raising The Future” T-shirt below.
