Well, hello, color!
This week has been all about Meghan re-rocking some of her “greatest hits,” so to speak — see: her engagement announcement dress at the WellChild Awards — and I, for one, am super excited to see her latest back on the docket, as it’s a piece from one of my all-time favorite ensembles of hers!
But, of course, I’m getting ahead of myself: So last night, Meghan attended the One Young World Summit Opening Ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall in London. It gathers together thousands of young people from all over the world to discuss social change, and Meghan’s been involved since 2014 — well before Harry. But! This time, she attended not just as a promoter of social change, but as a member of the royal family — specifically, the Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
And everyone was thrilled to see her, including one of the summit’s founders, Kate Robertson, who (as you can see in the adorable moment above ^^) tried to curtsy to her, but Meghan just went in for the hug. <3
The video is even better:
As for the threads, as I said, this isn’t Meghan’s first rodeo in this Aritzia beauty — that honor goes to her visit to Birkenhead earlier this year, where she wore it (while still expecting little Archie!) with a cherry-red coat and matching heels.
I know, FLAWLESS.
This time, Meghan opted to go more subtle — she traded in the red for sapphire Manolos instead. And while I must admit, I do prefer the styling of the first go (the red just pops!), I still love this dress — the sleeves, the slit, and, of course, the royal purple hue. So I am more than pleased to see it back out and about.
And I suspect you might be, too, which is why I pulled a few look-alikes below!
Happy hump day, queens!
P.S. Who’s watching H&M’s documentary on ABC tonight? I am DYING to discuss!
