Meghan Markle has a talent to pick some of the most gorgeous dresses. It is one of the many things she knows how to do effortlessly, but something else has now been added to her list of abilities: Giving the best surprises.
No one knew that the Duchess of Sussex would be making an appearance at the British Fashion Awards, held at Royal Albert Hall in London, considering the series of private engagements that she has been occupied within the past week. Therefore, you can imagine the gasp of shock that permeated the audience when she showed up on stage.
As expected, her dress was smashing. Going for a minimal look, she was clad in a black one-shoulder Givenchy gown.
Sporting no jewelry but a simple pair black earrings, a gold bracelet by Pippa Small and, of course, her wedding ring, she paired the dress with golden heels by Tamara Mellon.
Her signature wavy hair tumbling down her shoulders was absent and, in its place, her hair was swept back in a lovely bun.
Apart from the breath-taking dress, her very visible baby bump drew people's attention. As usual, though, a hush fell over the audience and attention was drawn away from her outfit when she began speaking .
The mother-to-be began talking about the honor of celebrating the British fashion industry in the U.K, which she described as her new home, then went on to announce who had the award for British Womenswear Designer of the Year.
In a nice twist of events, Meghan had been called upon to present the award to Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of Givenchy who designed Meghan's wedding dress.
According to a royal source, who spoke to royal reporter Carolyn Durand, the Duchess was invited to present this award by the British Fashion Council as they thought it would be a lovely surprise for Clare Waight Keller.
The beauty of the moment was undeniable as Waight Keller came up to receive the award. She remarked:
“I got to know Meghan on a personal level. To have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life is something that is just the most unbelievable honor. I can’t thank you enough because it was the most beautiful moment.”
Meghan Markle’s gesture was certainly thoughtful and admirable. Plus, she looked great while at it. What a woman!
