The Duchess of Sussex today visited the National Theatre in London as its new royal patron. Meghan returned to an all neutral ensemble today, wearing a designer she is becoming increasingly fond of.
The Duchess wore Brandon Maxwell ‘V-Neck Mini Dress’, retailing for £1,405. The sleeveless v-neck dress boasts a relaxed fit, with a drop waist that moves into a flared hem to a mini length. The dress is made from 100% viscose and is unlined with a rear zip closure. It appears that the Duchess has had her dress custom-made and it is not as short as seen on the runway. The dress looked wonderful on Meghan. This dress was on pre-order from M’Oda Operandi with the trunk show now finished. You can still view the dress here.
Meghan wore Brandon Mawell ‘Shawl Collar’ blazer over her dress, retailing for £1,631. The blazer has a sweeping shawl lapel, meaning it has no points or notches and is just a smooth silhouette. The tailored blazer has two welt hip pockets, a rear vent and four gold toned hardware buttons at the end of each cuff of the bracelet sleeves. It appears that Meagan may have added a small internal button to the open front blazer. The blazer is made from 100% viscose and is 100% lined in polyester. This is a great piece for the office. Both the dress and blazer are part of the designers Spring/Summer 2019 Collection. You can still view the blazer here. Try this great blazer as a nice replicate, purchase here.
The mother-to-be carried her CH by Carolina Herrera ‘Metropolitan Insigina’ clutch in bespoke white leather. We first saw this piece at Trooping The Colour last year. The bag is a whole roll style with gold hardware letters of a ‘C’ at either end of the clutch and a stretched letter ‘H’ over the body, which also contains the push clasp. Meghan’s bag is a custom colour-way and unavailable to purchase. However, Carolina Herrera offers the same clutch in arrange of other colours and even glitter and brocades.
Meghan wore her Aquazzura ‘Mathilde Criss-Cross’ 105 pumps in nude. These pointed toe suede pumps have a fine strap ending with gold hardware caps that sweep through the heel cover to be tied around the ankle. You can tie the strap at the front or the back depending on your preference. Meghan opted to tie her straps at the front. You can also add a bow or knot. We would love to see these tied with a bow. Meghan has owned these heels before her wedding to Prince Harry, though most notably wore them when the two announced their engagement in the sunken gardens of Kensington Palace. Relive the announcement here.
Meghan accessorised with a pair of new very unique and uber edgy pair of earrings from Ecksand. She wore the ‘Tresses Bar’ stud earrings in 18kt yellow gold. The earrings are made from recycled gold in a very fine spiral rope pattern. Meghan wore a ring stack from the designer when she visited Sydney last year on her first ever Royal Tour. These earrings retail for £333 and you can purchase them here.
Meghan also wore her Catbird NYC ‘Threadbare Ring’ on the index finger of her right hand. The ring retails for £34 and you can purchase it here. Meghan was also wearing a gold bar ring on her left thumb. We think this could be her Natalie Marie ‘Square Wire’ ring.
A very polished look from Meghan today, we really like the way she does monochromatic neutrals.
