Meghan Markle's Trench Dress Deserves to Be Photographed, Framed, and Displayed in a Museum
After a fun weekend with Kate Middleton at Wimbledon and a stylish off-duty look, Meghan Markle stepped out with Prince Harry to visit the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition in London. For the occasion, the Duchess of Sussex wore a stunning blush trench dress by Canadian label Nonie, which she accessorized with a Mulberry Clifton bag ($803), neutral heels, and stud earrings.
Of course, the impeccably cut piece was immediately hit by the Meghan Markle effect. "It was unbelievable. It was really surreal," explains Nina Kharey, former CAFA nominee and founder of Nonie. "I just started Googling right away and looking, and I was in awe of how she looked. She just looked so amazing it." But the moment meant more to Kharey than a boost in sales. "I finally not only get to prove it to the world that I'm worthy of attention and time, but in a way I also proved it to myself and my family," she says. And her father's reaction really says it all: "My dad was in tears!"
Since her wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan has turned to pink-hued outfits more than once. For her very first royal engagement as the Duchess of Sussex, she wore a pretty peachy-pink Goat dress; when she attended her first Trooping the Colour, she broke the protocol in a surprising pink off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera; and when she joined Prince Harry for the Queen Elizabeth's Young Leader Awards at Buckingham Palace, Meghan gave us a lesson in power dressing in a blush Prada suit dress.
