The timeless Meghan Markle stuns in a breathtaking Bardot-style gown

Meghan Markle is no stranger to turning heads with her impeccable style, and she did just that once again at the recent opening of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition in London. The Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a stunning Bardot-style gown that was truly timeless and classic.

The breathtaking gown featured a sleek silhouette with off-the-shoulder neckline, a look that was made famous by the iconic French actress Brigitte Bardot. The black dress was adorned with intricate white embroidery, giving it a modern twist while still paying homage to the vintage-inspired style.

Markle paired the gown with simple yet elegant accessories, opting for a pair of diamond drop earrings and a black clutch. Her hair was styled in a chic updo, allowing the dress to take center stage and showcase its timeless beauty.

This glamorous look is a departure from the more traditional and conservative styles that Markle has been seen wearing since becoming a member of the royal family. It shows her versatility and willingness to experiment with new and bold fashion choices while still maintaining a sense of sophistication and elegance.

Markle’s Bardot-style gown is a perfect example of how a classic silhouette can be reimagined and made to feel fresh and modern. The combination of the off-the-shoulder neckline and the intricate embroidery gives the dress a romantic and ethereal feel, making it perfect for a special evening event.

It’s no surprise that Markle’s fashion choices continue to captivate and inspire people around the world. Her ability to effortlessly mix classic and modern elements in her wardrobe showcases her impeccable taste and keen eye for style.

As the Duchess of Sussex continues to make her mark on the fashion world, it’s clear that she is not afraid to take risks and push the boundaries of traditional royal style. With her timeless Bardot-style gown, she has once again proven that she is a fashion icon in her own right.

Meghan Markle swapped her ski style for something slinkier when she stepped out on Friday night for an emotional evening with her husband Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex, 42, was seen at the One Year to Go Invictus Games dinner in Canada in the most classic off-the-shoulder gown, the ‘Oseph’ style by Greta Constantine which featured an asymmetrical neckline.

The show-stopping dress also had ruching around the waist for an extra element of detail and a fit and flare silhouette that grazed the floor for added drama. The Duchess accessorized the khaki-colored piece with stunning accessories that had her looking like a golden goddess.

Meghan popped on a gold chain and gold drop earrings, as well as two impressive bracelets – the ‘Diamond Hex Tennis Bracelet’ by Ariel Gordon, and the ‘Love Yellow Gold Bracelet’ by Cartier that are collectively worth over $10,000.

Meghan opted for an unexpected hairstyle that complemented the unusual neckline of the gown perfectly. Meghan tied her hair back into a sleek low bun in a twisted style with a deep side parting.

Followers of the ever-stylish former actress have become used to her gorgeous loose waves so it was a welcomed departure from her usual look seeing her striking bone structure.

“Our collective journey through truth and reconciliation is an important one for all of us, and as we come here to learn, my hope is we can depart and return as friends,” Harry said. “When I am with the Invictus community surrounded by so many brave men and women who have served their countries with distinction, I feel humbled and at home.”

It was all in the details for this look. The former Suits star was seen clutching her hands together in a pair of khaki suede gloves by Max Mara which came up to the mid-forearm and her slick side-part ponytail revealed the dainty ‘Gold Signature Link Double Cross’ earrings by Anine Bing.

Meghan debuted the look at the Invictus Games One Year To Go Winter Training Camp at Hillcrest Community Centre in Vancouver. Earlier in the day she was snapped alongside her husband and Vikram Vij, the owner of local Indian restaurant Vij’s, where she debuted the most stunning white coat imaginable.
