Meghan Markle just wore her most rule-breaking outfit yet

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended a special charity performance of Hamilton yesterday (which is rumoured to be her favourite musical FYI), and the Duchess wore her most daring dress yet.

I say daring, because it technically broke the royal fashion etiquette rules - which to be fair is a little strict. Meghan chose a black tuxedo mini dress by Canadian label Judith & Charles.

As you might have guessed, the reason it's a bold move for the Duchess is due to its length. You'll have noticed that Kate Middleton always wears kneel-length, midi or maxi dresses, and that's because the Queen prefers it. She is apparently not a fan of dresses that are above the knee.

Nonetheless, I think it's the perfect date night outfit, it's smart, and she accessorised it very nicely with some suede pumps.

It's about time those fashion rules were broken a little.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
