Meghan Markle’s Bold Red Carpet Looks
People can't stop talking about Meghan's trendy style choices—which look is your favorite?
Meghan Markle has been making headlines left and right recently, thanks to her engagement to Prince Harry.
While Markle may be marrying into the royal family, her own background is pretty impressive. She grew up as the daughter of a successful Hollywood lighting director, and pursued a career in show business herself. As an actress, she is most well-known for her role in “Suits” on the USA Network, in which she has starred since 2011. Until last year, she also ran a lifestyle blog, called The Tig, which covered fashion, food and travel.
As you can imagine, as a successful actress and the fiancée of British royalty, Markle leads a pretty glamorous lifestyle—and of course, that includes her wardrobe. In addition to being beautiful, successful and in love, Markle is also definitely a fashionista. In fact, she even launched her own capsule collection at Reitmans, Canada’s largest women’s apparel retailer.
Upon their marriage, the Queen will probably name Prince Harry a duke, which means Markle will become a duchess. However, these examples of her best-dressed looks prove she is already a style queen.
1. Red Carpet Glam
Markle rocked red when she wore this brocade Dolce & Gabbana frock to Elle Magazine’s 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner in January 2016.
2. Understated Wool
Markle kept it simple in this embellished wool little black dress at the UK premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” in 2013.
3. Sweet Short Suit
Markle showed off her enviable legs in an adorable short suit at a party in May 2016.
4. Mermaid Silhouette
Markle evoked a mythical mermaid in this curve-hugging number at the Enduring Vision Benefit for Elton John’s AIDS Foundation in 2014.
5. Crochet Chic
The actress looked perfectly pretty while posing in front of a wall of flowers in a pale green crochet dress at the Glamour and L’Oreal Paris Celebrate 2016 College Women Of The Year event in 2016.
6. Cool Metallic
The royal bride-to-be looked stunning in this form-fitting metallic number with a plunging neckline at the 12th Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in 2015.
7. Stunning Sunnies
Every fashion plate knows no outfit is complete without the right sunglasses. Markle looked casual yet poised in these Finlay & Co. Percy shades at the Invictus Games in Toronto in 2017.
Markle knocked “red carpet glam” out of the park at a 2013 event for ELLE magazine in a silk burgundy dress with a gold clutch (and big hair!). Is this her color or what?
9. Sweet Mini-Dress
Not everyone wears a mini-dress on the red carpet, but at the 2013 Much Music Awards in Canada in 2013, Markle showed how it’s done.
10. Over The Rainbow
While Markle usually rocks a solid color, she indulged in a shimmery, rainbow-colored gown for an Entertainment Weekly Pre-SAG Party in 2013, which she accessorized with long, dangly earrings and what appears to be a mother of pearl bracelet.
11. Three’s Company
While promoting “Suits” with co-stars Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres, Markle looked sultry in a shoulder-baring black sequin dress. Her shiny clutch matched her shiny heels, proving this bride-to-be loves a glittery accessory.
12. First Public Visit
Just days after announcing their engagement, Markle and Prince Harry made their first official visit as a betrothed couple. The pair visited Nottingham, and Markle’s classic chic look — pairing a basic black turtleneck with a high-waisted skirt and black boots — fit the part.
13. Fancy Pants
Somehow Markle showed how she could even make a pantsuit pass as evening wear. While attending her first official evening affair in February 2018, she wore a chic pantsuit with a silky white bow.
Tonight, Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle were honoured to meet wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have overcome adversity and taken on remarkable sport and adventure challenges, at the annual #EndeavourAwards The Endeavour Fund gives these people the opportunity to rediscover their self-belief and fighting spirit through physical challenges, and is led by the Royal Foundation. Congratulations to all the winners and nominees for their incredible feats.
14. Keeping It Classy
Markle looked classy in a camel overcoat, cream sweater, green skirt and brown shoes and accessories while recently visiting Northern Ireland.
15. Glamour Girl
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement photos suggest that if this royalty thing doesn’t work out, they both could have a second career in modeling. Her gown was made by designers Ralph & Russo and retails for $75,000.
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives. As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.
16. Christmas Day
Celebrating her first Christmas with her fiancé’s family must have been a little nerve-wracking. But Markle looked the very picture of calm heading to church on Christmas morning, where she bundled up in a beige coat and wore a matching brown hat and gloves. Somehow, this California girl even makes bundling up for a cold winter’s day look chic.
17. Service Chic
Markle looked classy and chic in clean lines while headed into a service at Westminster Abbey alongside Prince Harry.
18. Royal Engagement
Of course, the list wouldn’t be complete without mention of the outfit Markle wore when she and Prince Harry announced their engagement to the world. Markle wore a white jacket on top of a forest green dress by P.A.R.O.S.H—and of course the dress quickly sold out.
