In case you missed yesterday’s royal family clothing budget news, you’ll know that Meghan Markle, as well as Prince William, Harry and Kate Middleton, need a lot of show-stopping outfits for all the official engagements they have to attend.
Which is why I reckon Meghan will have paid particular attention to Haute Couture Fashion Week, where the likes of Chanel and Dior presented gorgeous ballgowns worthy of any Palace dinner.
More importantly, they tick all the right dress protocol boxes for black tie events, from being floor-length to having minimal cleavage. So here are five dresses I think Meghan could totally wear this season.
Meghan Markle in Chanel
This Karl Lagerfeld creation is just the type Meghan Markle would love. Traditional yes, but with a little twist thanks to a sequin-embroidered bodice and belt, plus I love the addition of the white gloves for extra chic points.
Meghan Marke in Dior
Meghan has always been very vocal about supporting other women – she chose Givenchy and Clare Waight Keller for her wedding after all – so she’d definitely champion Maria Grazia Chiuri by wearing this chic nude number, especially as she’s a big fan of wearing pale pink for this reason.
Meghan Markle in Givenchy
Since the wedding, Meghan has worn Givenchy twice, and we can see this lovely partnership carrying on. This long-sleeved dress is just the right side of bold, without breaking any style rules.
Meghan Marke in Georges Chakra
Gossip Girl fans will remember the designer behind Serena’s gorgeous gold wedding dress in the season finale, and I love the idea of Meghan being the first Royal lady to wear one of his creations. Like this sequin feather number.
Meghan Marke in Giambattista Valli
As proven by her wedding dress and Trooping the Colour frock, Meghan loves a design that shows of her shoulders a little, so I can see why she would fall in love with this dreamy Giambattista Valli dress, with a delicate floral patterned skirt.
Meghan Marke in Ralph and Russo
Obviously, the Duchess of Sussex is a big Ralph and Russo fan. She wore one of their dresses in her official engagement shots, and for months, the brand was a hot favourite for the wedding dress. so it’s not unreasonable to think she will turn to them again for an official appearance in the near future. She would totally rock this suit/skirt combo.
