Meghan Markle Just Wore a Stunning Cape Dress and Now We All Want One
The former actress steps out in Stella McCartney
Meghan Markle attended the Queen's 92nd birthday on Saturday wearing a navy blue cape dress that turned heads and for all the right reasons.
The celebration, which culminated with a concert at Royal Albert Hall in London, was also attended by Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Lady Louise Windsor amongst others and while it was officially about the Queen, it was Meghan who was the star of the night.
The former actress was flawless from head to toe and there were several reasons for that - the most noticeable being her choice of dress. The $2250 Stella McCartney number with cape attached provided a sharp and sophisticated silhouette. That effect was only heightened by Meghan's choice of matching blue heels (Manolo Blahnik blue suede no less) and a Naeem Khan Zodiac Clutch, $1494.
The concert kicked off with a performance by Tom Jones which the queen looked distinctly tickled by. Prince Harry took to the stage to wish his grandmother a happy birthday mid-way through the ceremony. A grinning Prince H brought the audience to laughter when after wishing her the best he went on to indicate the Queen had a difficult side.
"Tonight we are celebrating the Queen’s Birthday, but, Your Majesty, if you do not mind me saying, you are not someone who is easy to buy gifts for," said Prince Harry.
He went on to announce that the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust has officially launched, to “provide a platform for those working to make a difference in their communities across 53 countries.”
That was one of the highlights of the night - like we said earlier though, the main one was his bride-to-be's stunning attire. We perhaps shouldn't be surprised by her knock-out style though ... after all, it's not the first time Meghan has stepped out in a perfectly cut classic outfit.
Earlier in April she wore the cult-favorite Jackie O Dress from Black Halo, $650. That particular dress was very well received from fashion pundits and regular folk alike - including us. Truth be told, we went straight out and bought one that very day.
But now Meghan has something of a problem on her hands. You see, she's lifted the bar in and our expectations are HIGH. Will she be able to keep it up? That we can't be sure of. What we can say with complete confidence, however, is that we can't wait to see what Meghan wears next.
