The Duchess of Sussex recently stepped out for the British Fashion Awards and she sure made quite the impression.
Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the event to honor Givenchy’s designer, Clare Waight Keller. Keller was the same designer responsible for Meghan's wedding dress so the two ladies are probably familiar with each other.
For the fashion event, Meghan Markle looked stunning in an asymmetrical black velvet dress. Gold bracelets graced her wrists and she wore a pair of matching metallic sandals to complete her look.
She wore her hair in a sleek bun and had on simple makeup. Her gorgeous baby bump also took center stage, but those were not the only things people noticed about the Duchess' appearance.
Meghan Markle chose to wear dark nail polish to match her dress. This sounds like a perfect choice for any regular person. However, being a member of the royal family, Meghan may have broken protocol with her choice of nail polish color.
Women in the royal family usually go for light nail polish or leave their fingernails natural and bare. According to OK Magazine, sources claim that this is because the Queen does not like colored nail polish and that, as a result, the protocol expects the royal women to follow suit and wear nude shades.
Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, royal correspondent Omid Scobie said there is no official rule that bans dark nail polish colors.
There’s no actual protocol about dark nail polish. It’s simply about being appropriate—we’d never see this at a royal engagement. But tonight’s event is a celebration of fashion and there’s a lot more flexibility on what one can wear.
So, it's safe to say the Queen isn't somewhere fuming about Meghan's nail color choice. Since Meghan has always had a style of her own, we imagine that this is just her being herself and, of course, looking as beautiful as always.
