After what seems like a very long summer break, yesterday evening Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex attended the musical Hamilton at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre. The Duchess was dressed in a chic black dress by Judith and Charles.

Meghan was wearing the ‘Digital Dress’ by Judith and Charles a Canadian designer and retails for £320. The dress does appear to be more of a black-tie suit jacket than dress, you would be forgiven for thinking that perhaps Meghan forgot her pants or a skirt. However, this is the style of dress: a black mini tuxedo dress with a peaked lapel collar, double-breasted black fabric coated buttons and oversized patch pockets that sit along the hip. The dress also features panelled darts across the bodice for a very tailored look and four buttons on the cuff of each sleeve. The dress comes in two colour-ways, black and aubergine. The dress is constructed a mix of virgin wool, and elastane, and is created in Italy. You can purchase Meghan’s dress here. Buy a very affordable replicate here.

Judith and Charles Digital Dress

When viewing the collection of Judith and Charles they seem to have quite a mixture of pieces that are reminiscent of looks from designers such as Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Victoria Beckham and even high-street label LK Bennett – this could be why the Duchess was drawn to this brand as the silhouettes are so familiar to other dresses she has worn. That being said, it seems this designer does not really have their own unique aesthetic, borrowing from many other sources. The premise of the designer is to “combine the structure of menswear with feminine softness.”

Meghan was wearing her Paul Andrew ‘Pump-It-Up” heels. We first saw these heels worn on the tour of Ireland. These are towering stiletto, black pointed toe court heels made from black grosgrain and linen canvas. The toe cap detail is very hard to see unless you zoom in very closely to the images. These heels are still yet to be available, we show a similar pair of Paul Andrew heels below. Get an affordable pair of heels here.

The Duchess of Sussex accessorised with her Shaun Leane ‘Yellow Gold Vermeil Talon Earrings’, retailing for £225. A pair of gold sharp hooked earrings that are made up of two pieces that fit together with a post. We saw these earrings previously at The Queen’s birthday concert earlier this year. These earrings also come in rose gold, silver and black. You can purchase these earrings here.

Meghan carried a black cigarette box clutch with textured front. The unique looking clutch has a thick gold metallic band trim, with a hinge opening and optional shoulder strap. The piece has yet to be identified though we think it may be by Lanvin. We have previously seen her carry a similar white Carolina Herrera clutch to a friends wedding matched with her Oscar de la Renta china pattern dress (this was a private event so was not covered on our site).

This is not a favourite look of ours, a little too vampy and a feeling of going back to being the actress and not a Duchess. Meghan has been noted for wearing similar mini tuxedo dresses as an actress. We would love to see Meghan move forward more into her role as a Duchess and evolve her regal style.
