2018 End of the Year Style Awards: Best Dressed Head of State

She might be new to royal life, but I have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex transition from working actress to working royal. It is no secret that I have had some issues with Meghan’s looks leading up to her wedding, and even her wedding gowns and some of the looks post marriage, because of proportions and fit. She has gotten a lot better with her fit and the range of styles that she has brought to life has been giving me life. I wondered how Meghan, being the “American princess” was going to handle her wardrobe. She absolutely shocked me when she chose Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller to be the designer of her wedding ceremony gown. It was not a brand I was ever thinking that Meghan would have worn, I was expecting a British brand like Ralph & Russo and hoping for an American brand like Carolina Herrera or Oscar de la Renta, but since Keller is a Brit it does totally make sense. In the follow up to her wedding Meghan has worn several custom looks from Givenchy. As well as several brands based in the commonwealth like Emilia Wickstead, Roland Mouret, Self Portrait, and Safiyaa. She has also represented American labels quite well with looks from Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, and Brandon Maxwell. And she has brought some more high fashion to the monarchy wearing Christian Dior Couture and Prada for public engagements as well. I have loved what she has been bringing to the world stage. With a royal baby on the way I don’t know how many public appearances Meghan will be doing into the new year, but I am really excited to see more from her.
