How Meghan took the plunge! Star wore a $298 velvet dress with a VERY daring neckline for her first Christmas Day with the Queen at Sandringham
Quote
Eagle-eyed royal watchers would have caught just a fleeting glimpse of red velvet as Meghan, 36, walked to church, and now Canadian retailer Club Monaco has confirmed the former Suits star was wearing its $298 (£220) Tay dress for the occasion.

^ I've seen that dress on another forum worn as a wrap dress, with one side pulled over and tied to the side leaving a short V-neck, which is undoubtedly how Meghan wore it. The Fail trying to stir the pot as per usual, but this time not even their commenters are biting. As if anyone would wear a gaping dress like that to a Royal lunch with their fiance's grandmother!

Who the heck is so fashion blind as to wear a velvet dress (during the day?) with scrunch suede boots and a structured handbag that doesn't even come close to matching?  Someone with no class I guess.

Elle UK discusses the dress, showing it wrap-style as it undoubtedly was worn IMO(and velvet is worn in Britain during the winter indoors in big old country houses. I've done it myself.) My guess is Meghan took the boots off and put indoor shoes on.

There are ways to wear velvet and a wraparound cocktail dress is not one of those ways in a daytime party in Big Country Homes. I agree she probably changed shoes because she would have to have been a nutcase to wear those tan boots with a velvet burgundy cocktail dress. Hopefully she kept her trench coat on during the church service. So I wonder if everybody  changes shoes or is it just Meghan that wears non matching shoes to one place so that she has to change them in the next. Her trench coat look was too casual for that event and her cocktail dress is too dressy. But I see that she gets her styles from the different celebrities that are wearing that eclectic look, and yes Rihanna was wearing a long velvet dress with metallic sandals to some event so you wait  Megan will be wearing those rhinestone flip flops just like I predicted. The bottom line is she is Hollywood and she will emulate that. So I don't know that there's really much more to say that's just where she comes from and she's too old to change easily. And you know what maybe nobody will Care accept us that she dresses Hollywood. You mark my word she's going back to acting at some point no doubt about it.

^ Probably everybody changes if they're wearing boots outside. I would bet that Eugenie wore (dirty) sneakers to that morning church service because her boots hadn't been cleaned. Country walks can get quite muddy and messy in the winter.

The model wearing the dress shows half her breasts in the elle article. I like the dress but it does not seem the best choice for lunch with the Queen.

I thought she had better style and was more smart. Non of her choices make me feel she understand with who she is going to marry.

Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: lesken on January 02, 2018, 08:27:58 am
Alright I went back and read what Kate had worn to Christmas and the Articles talked about that she had to change outfits five times throughout the day. She and Wills have two church ceremonies they have to go to I guess cuz they're the monarchs to be . But she has to wear a dress for lunch a cocktail dress for cocktails and a evening gown for dinner in addition to the Christmas walk suit and coat and the breakfast outfit. So I'm not sure if that velvet cocktail dress ME wore was for the evening cocktails or she wore it at lunch. So if she didn't wear it at lunch then it would be appropriate for the evening. So in all fairness maybe she wasn't so awfully dressed at Christmas. I still think the trench coat was too casual.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on January 02, 2018, 12:05:48 pm
I'm not too sure they still do these many outfit changes. I know it was still normal when Diana married in, but it was said that they have relaxed on this.
W&K don't go twice to the church, Liz & Phil do and others often join them, eg Bea & Eug, but the Cambs have never joined Liz & Phil so far for the "private" morning service, only for the public one with the walk around noon.
And for past Xmases when the Cambs deigned to be at Sandringham, the Midds would usually bunk at Anmer, and the Cambs wouldn't spend the day quite with Liz & Phil, so I'd presume even if the outfit changes were still normal (which I doubt they are), W&K got around them.

I have read that it is assumed the Winds are decked out in tiaras and all for Xmas dinner (or lunch?), no idea whether true.

PS Even if this many changes were still normal, Murkles still failed, as for one inappropiate for church and for another inappropriate to have your tits out in front of the in-laws you don't know yet. I wouldn't dare wear that revealing a dress during cocktail hour amongst my family, never mind in-laws I've just met..

DM enjoys stirring the waters. For one thing I doubt Meghan would have been allowed in if she wore that dress without alterations--and exactly as the model.  There are no photos of her in this dress.  The dress could have been altered since one size does not fit all. I think they toss something out that is provocative and sit back and watch the reactions. How is it known she showed her cleavage at that event? No cameras were let in.

Yes. I agree. Theose nude shoes need to go but that neckline, with it being a v-shaped with curves, I don't know how else to describe it, is flattering on her.

A little comedy relief, I hope:

I had a friend’s 6 year old boy over here and Sparkle’s brown getup was still up on my ipad.  He shouted, “Look mommy!!  Daniel Boone!”

Come to think of it that hat does bear a resemblance to Boone’s.

Doing it the Markle way! Meghan channels casual chic as she opts for a relaxed updo and a £45 M&S jumper (under a £600 coat) for her first engagement of 2018

    Former Suits star, 36, joined Harry at  Reprezent 107.3 FM in Brixton
    Wore her hair pulled back in a bun with loose tendrils falling around her face
    Stray locks around the front ended up blowing across her face as she arrived
    Gave a nod to the British high street in a Jigsaw scarf and M&S jumper

^They've raised the price to 75 pounds on their website from here anyway.  For anyone in the States stupid enough to need another black sweater, that'd be around $100 plus a ton of shipping and tax.  I'll pass.  My closet has enough black (seriously).  It is a nice sweater, tho, if you don't have a single black one, live in England, and can find that price point.

Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Alexandrine on January 09, 2018, 08:49:34 pm
It is mainly in the brf and it is also due that most of them are old and are used to skirts.

Kate could have used pants.

Still thinking this long coats do not look good on her. If we had Kate at the side she would look even smaller.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRH Tiana of NOLA on January 09, 2018, 08:59:59 pm
^She's not that tall and when you aren't that tall, you have to be careful with long coats. If they aren't hemmed just right, you could end up looking like a Hobbit, especially next to taller people.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on January 09, 2018, 09:05:01 pm
^^ Yeah it definitely is mostly the Winds.

Sophie has worn trousers, don't know how often she does it. And Kate only wears spray on jeggings.

There's another reason for the trouser aversion (just look at Charlotte's pics from yesterday, wouldn't ever dress a girl that way in such a cold!): British women wear skirts from childhood on (think school uniform), and I swear I never see as many women in dresses and skirts as in England (compared to other European countries). It is also a cultural thing. It is shyte cold and British women will wear short and fairly flimsy skirts. One English teacher of mine was for a semester at an English school and she said she froze nearly to death, whilst the other girls didn't seem to be cold at all (that was in the 1980s or so and my teacher was an exchange pupil and seems like she wasn't allowed to wear trousers as part of the school uniform then).

I don't think that many notice this or are aware of it, but German friends of mine commented on how odd it is to see women of all shapes and sizes in all kinds of weather all the time in skirts, and often not even weather appropriate skirts (say it's windy and cold, and the skirts won't be longer or of thicker material.....).

Personally I don't mind the long coat on Murkles, I've never been too strict about height rules tbh and I think often they are over done, but it is true that a shorter person in the wrong frock can look hobbit like very fast, I think I'm around M's height, ca 5'5" / 165cm?

Emily Nash twitted the story of the makers of the pants Meghan wore today. A small Cardigan firm that operates in a town where 400 were thrown out of work when a former denim factory closed. They're about to go global.
Good that Meghan is giving this firm some publicity. The firm making the green bag she had today contributes to a kids charity too.

Two thousand pounds for another wrap coat?  I don't care for it anymore either.  Plus, she's wearing out the style.  We've seen three of these things now. 

Boy, has she got a lot to learn.  And, pleeeeze.  Comb. The. Hair.

Isn't she "merching" the pants and handbag with the hope that people will go and buy them to help the handbag charity and jean company? I guess it goes both ways.  :dontknow:

How would Meghan know of this jean company unless someone told her? And they probably sent her the jeans, same with the handbag. I doubt she does much research, if she did, all she had to do was wear a coat that matched the Welsh flag: red, green, or white. It too much black. I would've chosen a green coat.

Meghan wore a top from Marks & Spencer in Brixton and so Marks & Spencer most likely had a black coat for her to wear also at 70% the cost of the Stella McCartney coat.  :sly:

^Of course they approached her.  That's how it's done.  It's a good thing to promote, however, but is not a tax deductible donation.  It's advertising.  Very little monies go to the org but it does promote awareness. 

There may be an explanation for her messy hair, tho.  It appears that her hair is a Statement.  Recently, jcrew put a messy bun on a black woman in their catalog and it looked awful per the community of black women.  Then, tons of complaints were twittered to jcrew who then issued an apology.

Then, there was outcry because women of color should be able to wear their hair however they like.  Messy buns aren't just for blondes kind of thing.

Pretty stupid but there it is. 

The stylists for women of color were unanimous, tho, that it takes someone who knows how to style their hair and no excuses for sloppy hairstyles.

So, I suppose the next step is to get Sparkles a specialist to avoid this kind of bedhead in the future. 

Google it.

Her hair looks a mess. She looks like someone who woke up late, through on business casual attire, brushed her teeth, threw her hair up real quick, and rushed to the office. There is nothing fashionable about it at all. And before someone tries to pull the card, I would say that even if she were a blonde. We would all say it if it were Kate that wore her hair like this to an engagement.

Let's remember how many times of the past years we have complained about how much and how often WK plays with her hair, it blows inher face and is just wrong for the outing.

WK was lagging behind and working the crowds in the early days before PW would push her along.

The messy bun was inappropriate imo. There are plenty of ways to fixate your hair in a classy bun without looking like you just went out of bed. But again, I think that this was on purpose - to promote her "effortless casual chic" style as written on meghan'smirror. Do we know who owns that site and makes the affiliate bugs from her appearances?

^^That's it!  It's "inside hair".  Or, in CA, "gym/airport hair".  Either way, it's not working and all it does is look slovenly and, also, add years to her.  If you're going to spend the kind of time and money she does to straighten her hair, why throw it together like that?

Only the very, very beautiful can get away with highly unmanaged managed hair like that and she is most certainly not that.

And what was the effect supposed to be with the off the shoulder blouse when she's on duty?  I'd get fired for wearing something like that to work.  Mismatched earrings and thumb rings, too, are not fashion forward.  She's trying too hard to do something and be something different and it's not having the desired effect.  She's just not that hip nor cute.  It comes off very desperate and attention grabbing, a growing theme.

What is Marbles problem? Is it she marbles? (old expression of nuts). What was she thinking with that outfit. and the hair.  Harry doesn't care one bit and being a man, especially a man's man type,  doesn't get fashion. I'm not sure Wills doesn't get it either, but Kate does. Diana did. Fergie was the one who was so tacky at the beginning. Marbles isn't tacky exactly, just not appropriate for the occasion. She either overdoes it or underdoes it. That is her signature. Well she is from L.A. So am I. And this is what I tell people about us. People around the world think as Californians that we're Americans. But the rest of the States thinks we are not Americans, we are something else. We are supposed to be Californians, but Northern and Central Californians think we Southern Californians should be another State. And there have been a few measures on the ballot trying to make us another State. And technically, Southern Californians think L.A. people are from another planet. And in some respects we are. So that may be her problem She doesn't belong anywhere.

@danifaul  I wonder why you have the two of them laughing on your posts. Just curious. And I am wondering if MM inner bohemian is coming out to create that as a fashion sensation in her mind. She is obviously serious about this look. All black is very much an L.A. thing. So she is just going with Hollywood all the way. Slovenly/casual when out and about at day and too formal at luncheons and engagement photos.

^ I thought that is probably why you put them laughing. And I do see the Diana copying, although that type of check design or tartan really is popular here and there on its own as a suit or jacket. I have to comment that she does take the check style and does her own thing which ends up being inappropriate. The off the shoulder look with sleek black jeans and coat and messy hair is being a sex kitten. That is something I would have worn when at CA Highland games when I was younger and attracting male attention and in CA. She is luring H and the public with the Hollywood sex stuff which is sooooooooo inappropriate for her position. But this is what H likes and what he is about as a man's man. They like women like that. So she can pretend to be empowering but she is using the oldest trick in the book. And maybe since she used to be a career woman with humanitarian interests for woman's rights, H might like that he has knocked her down for him in his eyes. But the fool doesn't realize this is an act and will change. And the way she does, he may not like. Before H I didn't see her in such inappropriate outfits as she now wears. But then maybe that is because it was either an attorney's costume, red carpet events or just out on the streets.

Yes it is but that is no excuse for Meghan's hair. Meghan went from the train, to a waiting car. She is not like the rest of us who have had to walk several blocks to the El station while battling the wind. A slicked back bun or low pony tail would have looked much better than what we got. Meghan had fly aways because she wanted to have fly aways. If it were that dang windy out there, the flags and hats in the crowds would have been flying all over the place.

The vast majority of the cost of Meghan's clothing so far was the engagement dress, which (whether bought, borrowed or given on a deal) reportedly cost £56,000. As she is and was at the time of the engagement photos, a private citizen who paid/pays for her own clothing, I don't see why the Express is so interested. I can't remember any totals being given for Sophie's clothes in the months after she became engaged to Ed, nor for Kate in her engagement period either.

I think it's very relevant to calculate how much she spends on clothes to look like a princess. She says she's a philanthropist but didn't help anyone from her family, she even claimed she didn't know her own brother which is beyond cruel. PH is marrying a failure at creating a home and family, a failure at making it to the red carpet in Hollywood where you need talent to be invited. Yet, she spends like a vain person would to make herself feel better.

Yet again - if tumblr sites are correct - the entire outfits are sponsored and she made income on them via JM'sPR company that paid her in Canada, while she carried the work in UK and owes taxes on that income in US, Canada and UK. And that's just pre-marriage when the taxpayers don't have to foot the bill for the bathrobe outfits with just got out of bed messy hair that her PR claims to be her signature look.

That is just the nature of their relationship IMO. She is mothering to him as that is what he needs. Whereas with Waity, her family does the mothering collectively. Sparkles is the boss of them and that is how they are. It would be interesting to see if she was that way with her ex or just is doing this to manipulative and nail Harry. Losing Di has left a void and women who know how to fill the void get them.

As and you shall receive. When she was after Cory she studied his gf, started having the same hobbies, the same style and same haircut like his gf, which became ex of course.

She's now dressing like Cressida  sloppy and messy. During her campaign to win the ring she's been all about I can dress like Cressida, I can dance like her, I am a better actress... Now - exactly like Cressida's haircut.

It's nauseating how creepy this mimicking is. You would think that it's just a coincidence that the two women look so much alike. You would think that the man has a type but no - he's been targeted and the narc is playing with their emotions.

Cressida had  her own look. Wearing those 'overalls' and looking sloppy.  Also Meghan is some years older than Cressida and got into acting first. SO how could she have imitated Cressida as far as acting. At least she does not try the modern dances of Cressida now that's something to be very thankful for!

Or she sends out Fred to do it for her, with a list in hand (as these 2 won't get charged). Then she wears lots of it only once or twice, if that, and then sells it to Haberdash in Copenhagen, a "luxury second hand shop", so she makes money on top of it all, and yet she and Fred constantly spend over budget and have to beg for more money. Mind boggling. Makes the Brits look civilized.

That off shoulder top that Meghan wore inside on her engagement at Brixton is not bespoke. It can be bought (and sold) on e-bay and anywhere else, by anyone. There's no proof whatsoever that Meghan is the seller of that item, though certain Tumblr and Twitter sites would like to infer that it's her that's doing it.

I actually liked it compared to her other choices. Her hair looked nice, she still hasn't got over grabbing Harry or brushing her hair back, but she was more subdued about it. Her shoes were too modern looking for the outfit and made her legs look too skinny somehow. She does have wirey arms and legs however, so any shorter dress and sleeves will accent that. But overall, the look was okay. She learned the sitting style of Kate. By the way, Kate and wills looked bored from what I saw. Didn't hear anything yet. She may learn how to dress yet despite my past negative comments about her look.

I said "some" criticized her and indeed they did. Harry looked a lot more interested in Meg than he ever did in Cressida. If he did not want Meghan he would not have proposed to her. As I said a number of times if she did not touch him at all she'd be called the "ice princess."

I am just guessing, knowing the mentality of a native L.A. chick, but she is probably getting, "Oh you are a breath of fresh spring air around here," from some around the Royals. So she is emphasizing her Spring Air California persona in her dress style especially in a snow storm. That is how they think. When I was 20 I might have done the same thing trying to show who I am there. It is really dumb in a snow storm.

Also . . . the chicken legs.  Harry finds this sexy?   Must not be a leg man.   Or a breast man either, since she took her implants out . . . .  :-

I don't see them as chicken legs, just thin legs. I would not say the royals are not the most attractive people in the world, the men losing their looks and so forth. And she looks better than many of the royal women. I will go no further...

^ Skinny, skinny legs are called chicken legs.   At least in my neck of the woods.

And, yes, Sandy, you say in every post that the royals aren't so great.   Can we all just stipulate that so you don't have to repeat yourself?   The topic we are discussing here is Sparkles.   Harry isn't in the subject.  It's Sparkles' chicken legs on display.  Not Harry's.  Sparkles legs are noticeably unattractive, in my opinion.  Harry's may be too, but that goes under his subject heading not here.

MM has ugly legs.   She should not draw attention to them with tight pants, short skirts, etc.  Lose slacks, long skirts/dresses, boots are her friends.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on March 13, 2018, 04:36:39 pm
Miss Hathaway with all due respect, speak for yourself. Please do not use the word "we" because you sound like you represent other people. You are speaking for yourself and have your own opinion as have I.

I think it is a valid comparison and I feel I can express my opinions as I choose to. Please do not address me like "can we all stipulate."

Maybe in your neck of the woods they are called chicken legs, but I choose not to think they are.

MM is free to wear what she wants. IMO. But I feel she is overanalyzed and picked at next thing you know some will say she does not breathe properly. She's human and flawed. But sometimes I think she's overly criticized. She can't win with some. I like the outfit. And berets are not unusual in this day and age.

I could ask you the same question re: favorable comments. Look at my last post I did call her "human and flawed." I also believe that I can express my opinion here. I find some of the comments overly harsh and some scary like the ones on the DM. Not liking someone is one thing but wishing them death (and yes there have been posts like that on the DM) is inappropriate and scary. I also am surprised at the criticism of her wearing a beret which is not unusual head gear. I like it better than fascinators.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Miss Hathaway on March 13, 2018, 05:29:18 pm
Why are you surprised that there is criticism of Meghan's head gear?  This is a gossip forum.   

However, it is not the DM, and no one here has wished death to MM, so that is a rather inappropriate remark for you to make in this forum, which is not the DM.   And yes, the Royals are "human and flawed" but the topic is Meghan's flaws.

So, bringing it back to the topic at hand -- which is MM's fashion --  Megs' beanie, just like the one on Christmas, is ridiculous!   Who is giving her advice? 

And she never, ever, never should draw attention to her chicken legs!   Ever!    In my opinion, of course. . . .   lol


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on March 13, 2018, 06:35:53 pm
I never said it was from Royal Gossip. Please check my previous post and see. The DM people seem "out there" and they are a different group. Extremists make those sorts of comments and I mean extremists. I'm just repeating what I saw on the DM which is rather shocking. But I won't quote anymore of them but they are there, I'll leave it to people to look on their own.

She can't cover her legs all the time though. People have DNA and her legs are shaped that way. If she's healthy that's what matters in any case.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Miss Hathaway on March 13, 2018, 07:01:16 pm
Yes, I know you were referring to the DM, but death threats on the DM have nothing to do with this forum and criticism of MM's beanie.

And with regard to her chicken legs, MM needs to dress to play up her plusses and minimize her minuses.  One of her minuses is her legs.   That is easily accomplished with looser slacks and flowing skirts.   She is also bow-legged.   She just needs to downplay her legs, period, in my opinion.

Post by: Cali San D on March 13, 2018, 09:38:13 pm
Unfortunately, we will see those ankles for the duration because she will wear skirts and dresses from time to time. Thank goodness we won't have to see them on the wedding day.  :tehe:

I looked at the pictures from the DM article about Meg & Kate wearing similar style shoes at the Commonwealth Ceremony and I didn't like the hat either. I think she should try to place the hat further back on her head and not too close to her forehead or wear a hat that angles up like Sophie's. It was also too plain, it needed a feathery thingy like Sophie or a bow like Theresa May.

Meg needs to try on different hats in the mirror to see what works, or she is one of those women who thinks she looks good no matter what she puts on.  :sigh:

There should be a motto: Not all fashion fits all. :tehe:

About the shoes- they are exactly like Kate's. There's video in which Kate sees them and then tells Wills. I bet they weren't amused.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Rosella on March 14, 2018, 01:47:17 am
The two pairs of shoes are different brands. And as the women aren't particularly close how would Meghan know what shoes Kate would be wearing on the day?  She'd hardly be scrambling around in Kate's shoe closet!  :laugh:

They dressed in different houses that day and arrived in separate cars with their spouses. I don't think they'd be sitting beforehand having a conversation about which shoes Kate would be wearing on Commonwealth Day and Kate jumping up to show her what pair!

It was a coincidence, borne of there being a particular theme of navy blue and white/cream going on that day. There have been several like coincidences over time. I remember Caroline of Monaco had the same coat on as someone else on one occasion years ago, and on one engagement Mary of Denmark and the host of the charity Mary was visiting had the same dress on from the same designer and the two women laughed about it. I think that was a couple of years ago.

She didn't complain and I'd think that M or her assistant found a way to see what Kate will wear and copy some of her style - the shoes. On Kate's big day in the Swedish tour Meghan wore an item from the same designer. Mere coincidences? I think not. There was a video on DM showing the moment Kate noticing Meghan's shoes and pointing them to William - I couldn't find it now but it's out there. The jelly one of the two is Meghan, not Kate imo.

Meghan Markle's Royal Wardrobe: Here's Who Pays for It, and Why She Can't Accept Free Clothes

When she stepped out at Westminster Abbey with fiancé Prince Harry for her first official duty alongside Queen Elizabeth on Monday, Meghan Markle’s $1,000 white coat from British designer Amanda Wakeley turned heads.

Along with the rest of her enviable wardrobe — including the Sentaler coat she wore at Christmas to designer Welsh jeans from Hiut — Meghan’s chic style comes with a hefty price tag.

And it’s all paid for out of pocket — for now, by Harry and Meghan themselves, PEOPLE understands. Royals do not accept designer clothes for free.

While assistants like Natasha Archer, who works for Kate Middleton, call in several options from designers, after they have chosen an outfit the others are returned and the one that is worn is paid for.

After her May 19 wedding to Harry at Windsor’s St. George’s Chapel, Meghan’s clothing budget for official outings will be covered by the money that Prince Charles gives to Prince William, Kate and Harry from his Duchy of Cornwall income of about $28 million.

Last year, the trio drew the expenses needed for their public lives (salaries and office costs and other expenses) from a fund of $4.8 million. (That part of Charles’s official outgoings also covers other aspects of his accounts, such as some capital expenditure.)

The eye-popping $78,000 cost of the Ralph & Russo gown Meghan wore in her engagement portraits sparked much debate when the pictures were released in December.

Well the taxpayers do pay for that wardrobe because those duchies of Prince Charles are not taxed the way everybody else is taxed.  And I don't even understand why he gets to keep them and they don't go back to the public. But of course this is the British and their rules and their country. So I don't have to understand it. If the majority of the British are happy with Meghan markle's wardrobe being paid for from the duchies as well as everybody else's that's the way it will be.

^True.  It’s up to them to decide how much of this is acceptable.

However, if any portion of Sparkles’  endorsements go hand in hand with receipt of goods or monies, the IRS can and will tax and inspect it.  They have carte blanche to do just about anything they want short of murder.  They are our most powerful branch of gov and until she cuts ties completely as a citizen, this will remain.  It isn’t the same as the BRF setup at all.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Ariel on March 19, 2018, 09:52:25 am
I think she's not planning to cut any ties with US. She's been setting up her trademarks and secret companies that are to be paid for her merching instead of her. A tumblr blog summed it up pretty neatly here

https://felix2001a.tumblr.com/post/172021880445/frim-fram-meghan-markle

Quote
My concern re: Frim Fram (a play on the term “flim flam” which of course describes a scam or con job) is that she plans to make illicit income while married and hide it there.  I have this concern because until November 2017 the CEO CFO and President of Frim Fram was one Rachel Meghan Markle.  On November 20,2017 the CFO CEO and President were changed to her accountant and her lawyer.  Note the proximity to her date of engagement to Harry.  So she was trying to hide her involvement with Frim Fram.  I’d take a guess and say she’ll continue to merch etc which of course would be a serious problem for a royal.  I also wonder what her charity humanitarian scam is all about that seems to be a real aim for her.  I have always said this woman is a jail sentence waiting to happen.  Note to sometime after she outed her fake affair with Harry she got The Tig trademarked and the trademark is owned by Frim Fram.  Lily has shown us some evidence of the existence of the “new” Tig (it’s on your site JD) Since she owns the trademark that is her.  It is obvious she plans on  restarting her social media business. 

I also recall that when Meghan’s Mirror started up we had evidence she contacted a trademark lawyer and she may have gotten some agreed upon percentage of the sales made by Meghan’s Mirror.  That site has undergone a very extensive upgrade which cost plenty so it looks to me like she has plans for income after wedding - income that would be given royal standards etc  damaging if discovered. 

Markle does not care about the integrity of the BRF nor its continuance.  She’d happily destroy the monarchy and for sure Harry especially if it got her media attention and money.

Since this is from Tumblr, I am not so sold on it. The royals learned lessons about outside jobs and I doubt they would allow this. Plus the IRS is keen on finding "illicit income" of famous people. It would be quite the coup. I doubt she would go up against the IRS.

Besides, this is the very recipe they live for.  Access to the previously inaccessible.

And, I’m sick of her shoes already.  They used to be called FM shoes.

Meggles' legs are sticks. Actually, so are Anne's.  But Annie isn't swanning around posing in min-dresses and hot pants.   And HM had a very nice figure back in her day.  The boot ankles are related to aging and fluid build up.   

Look at Megs' first photo in the silver dress.   No chest, no waist, chicken legs.   And the third photo where her knees are so bony.   She needs to dress for her (lack of) figure.

No real chemistry between them, no good body language.  She wants to be famous and a "royal", boss him around and do things her way.  He is such a dopey dork and he can't see she is manipulating him, and I don't get the impression, even on engagement day, that he actually loves her  -  love and lust two different things, and we are not stupid enough that we cant work things out, sadly for them.  I find her quite unattractive, always have, even first time I saw her on Suits I thought she was a cold, hard fish, will trample on anyone to get her way.  As for the attire, not seen her in much decent yet, not sure she has a fashion sense to be honest.  Let dopey dork get on with it, the thing that galls me the most is the public taxpayer funding this "mating" to the tune of 214 million, whilst pensioners are left dying on trollies because no beds/medical staff available.  That is so disgusting it is untrue.  I won´t be watching the wedding, or the stork delivering the third sprog.  Their viewing figures can go down the drain, and I hope they do.  Bill medd and councilc cath did not get the enormous viewing figures released at the time, and lies and hype, it will be the same with this dorkey, unattractive duo who are nothing but fame wh*res.

124 Million for a wedding? I thought the only taxpayer cost was security. That is one hell of a bill. It shouldn't be allowed. This should just be more private. And her fashion taste is so so cos she only knows how to sex kitten dress on her own.

I don't know where the figure of '124 million' is coming from. The BRF is paying for this wedding, and the only taxpayer expense is the security bill for all the royals and the VIP guests. I have never seen such a figure mentioned anywhere, never read anything like that sum. Could we have links to any articles with that published figure please?

I live in Australia. However, in the 1980s and 1990s my first husband and I had businesses in both the UK and in Australia. Therefore, our taxes went towards the security costs of the weddings of Charles and Diana, Andrew and Fergie, and the Wessexes. And I watched all the weddings on TV. Also, since the early 1980s my taxes have gone towards the security costs of every single Royal and VIP (British, American and otherwise) who has visited Victoria, here in Australia. God knows how many people that adds up to!

^^ I just thought "why tf are all her shoes too big?" and then I remembered that celeb wo/men who wear ill fitting shoes got them all for free sent by the companies. That's also why models always have ill fitting shoes on runways etc, they always send out set sample sizes and don't account for sizes outside the medium range.

Anyway, my suspicion is, she didn't buy any of her ill fitting shoes, but received them at some point from the companies, either at sets, shoots or sent directly to her.

This is beyond creepy, just like with Kate. I wonder how they'll outdo each other in the "copy Di" stakes in the future. Hilarious that H thinks he got a "good" one, only to get another crazy Diana-wannabe superfan who'll cling on no matter what.
Also copying someone like this, in the day and age of the internet is just beyond dumb. They know people dig and everyone comes forward to tell your story and what you're really like, so why do this and look like some stalking maniac? Besides, literally no one will believe this is a "coincidence", but the creepy copying that it really is.
I dislike Kate as much as before, but at least she doesn't pretend do be some philanthropic do-gooder and humanitarian, on a mission to "alleviate world hunger" and "change the world" with her hooked prince of dumb.

I guess no one would marry in but a desperate and dumb Diana fan. Those with at least some brain know what a toxic bunch the Winds are and won't touch them with a bargepole. They get the married-ins and in-laws they deserve.

Her clothes always come off looking rented like a bad tuxedo.  This was no exception.

Material seemed extra cheap on the severely overpriced dress thing.  Same old boring, ill-fitting, not quite appropriate for the event mess we have already witnessed.  Her supposedly savvy professionalism must be sitting in unclaimed baggage somewhere in New Jersey because I ain’t seen it on her yet.

I’d like to care more because that would be fun but I don’t.  After an exhaustive search, I’ve been unable to find anything cute or charming in this and they’re even below my appreciative snarking level, so...so over it.

Plus, I still think they’re already married in some fashion so this is one huge waste of time, money and so on.  Phony right down the aisle.

Not her most original look! How Meghan’s 'Jackie O' dress has been worn by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively and Katherine Heigl as far back as 12 YEARS ago

    Meghan wore $375 dress from LA-based Black Halo at Commonwealth reception
    The tight-fitting frock has been seen on countless celebrities over the years
    First created in 2006, the classic Jackie O dress is available in nine colours
    The dress is designed to make women 'feel 2in taller and 5 lbs thinner'

I said I saw this dress on someone before! Though none of the pics in the article triggered a memory, must have been on someone else and going by how many women wore it in over a decade I'd say there's a good chance there are at least a dozen more famous women pictured in it..
In any case, still a beautiful dress in all colours!

Nice navy cape dress for tonight's Birthday Concert. The shoes didn't match, would have been better black or another colour not a different blue, and I wouldn't have minded seeing a necklace. However, the dress and clutch were fine.

Check out this photo of Megs along side Gina Torres.  Note Gina's shapely figure -- shapely legs, rear, a pronounced waist, a defined bosom . . .

Now notice Megs' chicken legs, no waist, scrawny chest.  Truly one of the worse shapes I have ever seen, and especially on an actress.  She must have had some serious connection for her to get this acting job in an industry where appearance is everything.

Meghan Markle the Style Princess: Why Prince Harry's fiancée is now the most powerful woman in fashion

Mere seconds after Meghan Markle steps out of a car, one stiletto-clad foot after the other, she sets in motion an extraordinary chain reaction across the globe.

Fashion bloggers frantically identify every garment she’s wearing — from her jeans to her jewellery — ringing designers, ateliers and stores from Cardiff to Canada.

Once those details are posted online, shops, from exclusive Stella McCartney to Marks & Spencer, are bombarded by shoppers desperate to get Meghan’s look.

^^^She wears too big shoes because she's not actually buying them herself. I would be willing to bet real cash money that most of her shoes (the expensive designer ones, anyway) were obtained via the show's wardrobe department or various photo shoots that she's done. I've got way too many actor friends (ones who have way more successful careers that she's had) to not know how the game works.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on May 10, 2018, 12:16:53 am
^ That's my theory as well. Shoes actors, models etc get sent from companies tend to be too big or too small, they never ask for people's shoe sizes and don't care (this can happen to "A listers" as well, but not quite on a regular as to less famous people), that's a major reason why models trip on catwalks and such accidents happen. Anyway, considering this and that Murkles got freebies like anyone in her business, the conclusion points heavily towards gifted/ from sets swiped shoes.

Some think that's why her clothes are too big too, because she gets the stuff for free.

With clothes you have the same as with shoes, news speakers, actors etc get clothes lent and it's often too big and then held in the back together by pins..

Too big clothes aren't too big of a deal, but too big shoes... when your shoes don't properly fit & you can't properly walk and risk tripping etc, that's certainly dangerous and unnecessary...

She must be getting her hair styling on discount and the service is reflecting the price.

I was surprised by the bright white dress and long veil for a second wedding.  Perhaps I'm too old fashioned, but I've always thought that white is best for first time brides.  Meghan could have had a lovely off white or light pink color which would have looked nice but it's almost like she wanted a do-over at being a first time bride.  Like she wants to erase her past

The hair was the worst, the middle part for starters (middle parts are often awful but imo especially on up-dos) and then it was falling out like crazy, didn't hold at all.

Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Albany on May 19, 2018, 09:15:13 pm
At a certain point, the seamstresses/tailors have their hands tied. You can only take a garment in so much after the initial form is cast. Extreme stress can cause you to lose a severe amount of weight in a small amount of time, even if it's just water weight. The tailors shouldn't be held at fault for this one. I guarantee you they did their best with what they were given.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on May 19, 2018, 09:39:28 pm
^ Yeah I never knew that, until a recent interview with Madeleine of Sweden and she sad at the last fitting the dress fit perfectly and just mere days later it was way too big, she'd lost so much weight suddenly (I linked it in their thread, I think their wedding thread if anyone's interested reading it). I think that's why the shoulder part kept slipping off, which showed for really really bad workmanship, but it's now likely due to the severe stress related last minute weightloss.
In any case, I have a touch more understanding now. Might also explain Kate's cone boobs. But I also blame the designer/ seamstress in that case, because a more flattering/ different technique to sew the boob part shouldn't have resulted in the cone boobs...

The Wedding Dress: Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy

Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller. Ms. Waight Keller last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.

After meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour. Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses – Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy.
https://www.royal.uk/wedding-dress-bridesmaids’-dresses-and-page-boys-uniforms

Sketches of The Duchess of Sussex’s #RoyalWedding dress, designed by Clare Waight Keller, have been released.

The Duchess and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design, epitomising a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy.

Apparently those kinds of dresses, with no exposed zips etc, can be very expensive to sculpt. The Givenchy haute couture label would have added to the price tag, and I imagine the fabric was very expensive. The veil is presumably part of that price and would have cost a fortune with all the embroidery.

The shoes were painted light blue (the sole), I think for the evening reception only, or did she wear the same pair morning & evening?
In any case, she wore them in the evening and I think they were painted light blue to match the ring.

That certainly explains the price tag, thank you all for explaining!

I think she’s just lost too much weight and not just because of stress. Even the wedding dress didn’t fit properly. Usually a woman would choose a design that was naturally loose around the stomach.

Honestly, I know she’s not popular around here but the only woman I’ve seen make Goat’s dresses look nice is Victoria Beckham. I’m not really a fan of the brand as a whole.

Could be weight loss in the couple of weeks leading to the 19 May, happens to a lot of brides.  She could be preggers, who knows, time will soon tell, very soon.

If it were wedding jitters (of which she showed none whatsoever) then why the back fat - look at her back where her bra line is.

Those tights, ugh, not only pure white but shimmering white.  :cookie:

Meghan Markle's wedding dress sleeves 'didn't fit' and made her 'look too straight', says Escada designer

"Designer Emilia Wickstead felt the need to issue a grovelling clarification after she dared to criticise Meghan Markle's wedding dress, but she's not the only fashionista to have her reservations.

Megha Mittal, boss of the Escada label, tells me the Givenchy bridal gown needed some more tailoring.

'It was nice — simple, clean and minimal — but the sleeves didn't fit,' Megha says at a party at the Kensington mansion bought by her Indian steel tycoon father, Lakshmi Mittal.

'At the top, it made her look too straight.'

Wary of causing offence, Megha is keen to emphasise that the new Duchess of Sussex still looked beautiful: 'She was a radiant bride and I hope all good things go their way.'"

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5823283/EDEN-Meghans-wedding-dress-didnt-fit-says-Escada-boss-making-actress-look-straight.html

Mittal now better expect a barrage of *despise* mail and draft an apology and retraction of her statement. :sigh:

She also really needs to keep those hair extensions in. They at least add some attracivensss to her face. Without them she’s even more unattractive to look at.

The only thing he saw in her was the fake persona she sold him and as he was too stupid to make a move with Cressida or find someone else nice, he bought the fake persona as that was easier and he had no other options.

Harry bags a shock role... as Meghan's secret stylist by personally helping his new royal bride pick the perfect outfits for her public engagements

Most husbands do everything they can to avoid shopping for clothes with their wives, but Prince Harry has proved a surprising exception. I’m told he’s become Meghan’s secret stylist, personally helping her choose outfits for her new life as a Royal.

Of course, unlike most men, Harry isn’t being dragged around Primark on Oxford Street all day. His shopping trips with his new bride consist of having high-end designers visit them at Kensington Palace.

And according to well-placed sources in the fashion industry, Harry has been keenly giving tips for her new fit-for-a-duchess wardrobe.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5825307/TALK-TOWN-Harry-bags-shock-role-Meghans-secret-stylist.html

Carrie is a very immature and somewhat disturbed man. I totally see him relishing the idea that other men are looking at his wife and wanting her sexually but he's the only one that can have her. That fits with his smoking partying hunting boorish inner Macho Man.  As someone pointed out on this thread she's supposed to be a feminist instilling inner power in women.  And she is instead promulgating being a sex object because that's how she manipulates men in spite of her want to be feminists statements. She really is a piece of work and an insult to the feminist movement. But she gave a lecture to little girls a long time ago that it's okay to look s*****

If they say the husband "dresses her" it sounds like something out of My Fair Lady, with Eliza getting a makeover.

His last GF dressed like a ragamuffin at times like she got the clothes out of the hamper. And I never saw Harry at fashion shows.

If Will had carte blanche over picking Kate's clothing he forgot to have the skirts weighted.

The idea that the royal husbands pick out clothes for their wives is really laughable to me, it is so ridiculous.

^  None of the "whatabout" excuses make it ok for a grown up woman who studied the rf for years, copied Diana down to the clothes and pose, has worked on a legal drama show where there is the pretty simple dress code: long skirts and long sleeves, pantyhose and bra on official events. How hard can it be to remember this.

And, if we play the "what about" game, what about Story Daniels. She's adult film actress, dancer and producer. Still, she shows up for shows dressed impeccably. How can an adult film star get what dress code is but MEghan still can't. Didn't Meghan come prepared - ability to smile on cue, experience with proper dressing, with her own style and clothing collection, with networking skills and amiable personality.

^^^ I think the rf is saying: we ain't sacrificing our employees' reputation for your wife. She's your problem and anything she does or doesn't do is your fault. Congrats on marrying her.

It would be fun to let Harry loose at a fashion show and have him sit and watch and select the best fashions. And sit back ala Pretty WOman scene approving or disapproving what Meghan wears. I think the results would be hilarious.

Dressing up for a TV show in a suit is light years from dressing for the trooping. Off Topic:  IMO There is nothing impeccable about Stormy Daniels but if there is a Trump thread someplace I would be glad to copy it there.

There is a learning curve in adapting to what married into the family royal women wear. I don't believe the spin that Meghan sat and watched Diana to find a dress code. Styles changed in 20 years..

The transition from TV actress to royal can't be done overnight. I don't think her outfit at the Trooping was that horrendous. She will learn. And a good stylist with fashion experience would be someone to consult.

My take is that Meh knew darn well that the dress was wrong for the occasion but she did it anyway. She most likely figured she'd ruffle a couple of feathers with the Firm but she'd be saved by the masses buying the breath-of-fresh-air-singlehandedly-changing-the-stuffy-monarchy she's been selling. She never expected the UK public - who's opinions are the ones that truly matter - not singing her praises for this stunt.

Int'l Fashion Star she ain't and that does indeed come from the inside, not a PR machine in overdrive which turns people off anyway.

^^ I can almost see Lilibeth seeing her bare shoulders wrinkled dress and whispering to someone to throw in a cape to at least have the shoulders covered. The cape has elastic to keep it in place and not slip up and reveal whatever cleavage and bare arms she had prepared for the day. The fact that so many of the courtiers were there to watch out for deliberate impropriety from her side and she still managed to pat the queen on the back and get ahead of her in the car.

Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on June 18, 2018, 12:04:40 pm
Advisors can only advise, they can't force their clients into anything. If the client won't listen (i.e. co-operate) and undermines the advisor, then that's that. Can't blame staff for the Windsors's constant failures to dress, behave, use cheaper transportation, ramming gates with their freebie cars... The list is endless.

That being said, the dress looks actually quite nice on the model and emphasizes that Murky's is about 2 sizes too big. It screams "freebie" because of that, but she could send it back asking for a proper size or normally they'd get in touch with her/ her people asking for her size and not just send sth blindly.
So this remains weird, even if it's a freebie.

It looks on her like an oversized bathrobe coming undone.

The only thing I find attractive about her is her energy which seems genuine.  That trait, however, will be slowly managed and subdued to conform in some way, so this won’t go well, really.  Not for an American.

Physically, she’s no raving beauty at all and wears clothes designed for someone about 6” taller.  Like the latest mess of a dress.

It shouldn’t wrinkle, a shirtwaist is not a good cut with the hat, and the hem is absurd against the structured belt.  A miss.  Hat and hair quite good but the bronzer-a-thon cheapens the total look desired.

She's certainly not averse to splashing the cash.

Outfit's fine today. I didn't look too closely, but superficially it looked ok (no flashing, no hemlines in the mud..).

The biggest shames are her (& Kate's!!) obsession with bronzer and their stick thinness. Murky looks scarily thin and that can't be helpful for their wish to have kids. Being either too thin or too fat are both detrimental to fertility. Considering they supposedly consulted fertility specialists months before their wedding I'm not sure what she's doing.

And burn your bronzers Meg & Kate. They just make you look like you came straight from a mudbath or out of one of London's chimneys.

^^ I agree. Kate at least pretends with some High Street stuff thrown in (esp early in) and we know the "thrifty" shtick is bs, but Murky just throws the cash out with both hands like some hungry person who's never been at a buffet before just bingeing and devouring everything in sight, and she hasn't even done (worked) anything at all yet!!! And it's all instantly Cartier, Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta etc. :-

PS I stand a bit corrected, it looks like an oversize shirt with a weird wonky hemline...?

Meghan Markle’s Royal Ascot Triumph Happened Without a Stylist
One month into her life as a royal, Meghan is learning to walk the fine line of royal fashion requirements.


It’s the highlight of the Queen’s summer schedule, the most important date for racing aficionados, and a favorite among fashionistas, so the pressure was on for Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, when she made her debut at Royal Ascot today.

Taking her seat alongside the Countess of Wessex and opposite her husband Prince Harry and Prince Edward in the third carriage of the royal-carriage procession, which marks the opening of the royal meet, Meghan showed she has mastered two tricky feats—millinery and high-society dressing.

Having forged a close relationship with her wedding-dress designer, Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director at Givenchy, and Philip Treacy, the go-to hat maker for the royals, Meghan entrusted the formidable duo to ensure she looked picture-perfect in her buttoned-up, bias-cut, bespoke Givenchy frock, which she paired with the elegant head piece which met the strict royal-enclosure prerequisites. After being blasted by the hard-to-please fashion brigade over the $5,490 Oscar de la Renta wrap dress she wore to a society wedding over the weekend, Meghan was taking no chances Tuesday.

Palace sources say she doesn’t have a stylist, and Vanity Fair understands the Duchess personally asked Waight Keller to dress her for today. Looking stylish while remaining comfortable at Ascot can be challenging, but the elegant dress in Meghan’s favorite colors, white and black, was deemed an all-around success. The Duchess certainly seemed confident and at ease at her very first procession, a month to the day after she and Harry paraded in a state carriage following their Windsor wedding.

FOOT LOOSE This is why Meghan Markle always wears shoes that are too big for her
After repeatedly stepping out in footwear seemingly several sizes too big, our fashion expert reveals the reason behind Meghan's peculiar habit

IF YOU were dazzled by Meghan Markle's latest Givenchy number and oh-so chic hat at Ascot this week, you probably overlooked something peculiar.

While her black leather pumps were the least remarkable part of her outfit, paying closer attention to them reveals something altogether strange about the Duchess's shoe habits - they're always far too big.
Upon closer inspection, it appears there's at least a half-centimetre gap between the back of the shoe and her heel.

You could be forgiven for thinking a super stylish millionaire wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of ill-fitting shoes.

After all, it's hardly likely they were the last pair left in the sale.

According to Fabulous fashion expert Harriet Davey: "Celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they're at an event or on the red carpet and it's for one reason we can all relate to - to avoid blisters.

"There's nothing worse than uncomfortable shoes (we've all been there on a night out) and when celebs like Meghan are wearing heels for a long period of time their feet can often swell up."

She explains: "The swelling can cause blisters and in the long run bunions - like long-time heel fan Victoria Beckham has been rumoured to suffer with."
https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/6591536/meghan-markle-shoes-too-big/


Cashing in on the Meghan effect? Duchess of Sussex’s Mackage coat goes UP in price by £23 after she wore it in BelfasT
Since she stepped into the spotlight as Prince Harry's glamorous new fiancée, countless brands have profited from Meghan Markle's sartorial endorsements.

And now it seems labels could be actively cashing in on the so-called 'Meghan effect' after a coat she wore in Belfast was hiked up in price.

Shortly before her wedding to Prince Harry, the Duchess of Sussex visited Belfast wearing a $750 CAD (£427) wool coat from Canadian brand Mackage, which sold out almost immediately.

It appears the label has cashed in on its popularity by ramping up the price of the belted number by $40 CAD (£23), up to $790 CAD (£450).

It's amazing how a few of us make comments about Megs fashion or behavior and it becomes it's own article.

How many times have some of you talked about Megs' shoes appearing a size too big.

The guess was because she was receiving free samples. Now the reason is to avoid swelling and blisters. You can't get blisters if you are wearing hosiery and she was wearing hosiery at Ascot.

My feet plop out of a pump if they are too big. I often go down a size to make sure they are snug, I don't care about swelling.  :tehe:

What kind of feet does this chick have?! :James:

^No kidding.  If her shoes always look a half size too big when is this magical swelling happening?  Excuses, excuses. She is never ever responsible for even the slightest misstep.  Which is a bigger misstep because everyone notices it.

It's a classic freebie side-effect. Also shoes too big create vile blisters just like too small shoes (or even perfectly fitting shoes, I have more experience with blisters than I care to recount, I get blisters from nearly any shoes! cheap, expensive, flats, heels, trainers, sandals, flip flops.......... :thumbsdown: :sob: )

With KM recycling old outfits because Charles won't foot the bill for a layabout in KM, do you think this might be happening now to MM? Maybe because he doesn't approve of her? That's why her shoes are too big. She's still having to get freebies.

A click bait article if I ever saw one. The DM outdid even themselves. How do they know what she paid.

Charles can't be mean to Meghan and undo the good PR he got from escorting her down the aisle. Charles is image conscious IMO.

The wedding was a few weeks ago. Some outfits shown were pre marriage and she purchased the outfits but at book price? Actresses are lent clothes for the red carpet and jewels. This is a well known fact. So did she get to keep all those outfits? I doubt it. ANd actresses get discounts for some of the clothes. I have seen actresses on the red carpet in Chanel saying the outfit was borrowed. The DM is really trying to stir things up. Like they always do. I do find it amusing that some commentators on the DM find Kate lives "cheaply." I'm still laughing at that howler

This is a Clickbait article IMO, and like the supposed cost of the Royal wedding security that the British tabloids banged on about for months before (£30 million, when it turned out to be in fact around £3 million, if that.)

I don't believe that any Royal pays any quoted price for items of clothing. I think there are huge discounts involved each time, with perhaps as much as a half taken off the price charged other customers. Nor do I believe that dress designers release the prices of their garments to newspapers, especially tabloids. And that goes for purveyors of shoes, jewellery and other accessories. And some items during the engagement period would have been loans.

What's more, I don't think it would be Charles ponying up for clothing during the engagement. He isn't that generous. Like his other daughter in law his remit for Meghan began on the wedding day for official duties outfits only.

Weren't the royals supposed to not take freebies and special discounts in exchange of merching?
So far we have over 1 mil for the jewels and the clothes in merely 7 months. IRS is happy, the tax payers (of which we are not) must be thrilled to have her and the only winner in all of this is Kate who has always been conscious and thrifty with her spending.

^^ Yes, that's the rule: the Winds have a self-imposed rule to not take freebies and always pay full price. However, we know for a fact that they do not adhere to this rule.
Kate isn't at all thrifty or conscious when it comes to spending, but the PR spin is a good one and her being seen in High Street stuff on engagements as well as privately is very very good. I do think she likes the High Street stuff too, why not. In any case, it's more PR than truth that she's "thrifty" or considerate in spending. She actually a huge spendthrift and has one of the highest bills of the women. Murky has surpassed her quickly and she isn't with the heir, so double shame on her.

Kate's, Cam's & Liz's spending aside, Murky's is disgraceful. I do however think much of it were freebies and that someone else paid, or M decided to raid her savings as she thinks she has a set future in the lap of luxury. Because her earnings weren't all that great, she's nowehere near the millionairess people think or make out she is.

Yes, actresses get loans, but only for red carpet events and also only certain actresses. Not even every Oscar nominee (esp men) gets loans, if they aren't very well known, they have to buy their own. (The same goes for the women. There are a number of stories of very good and somewhat famous actresses being refused for loans, and then had to go and buy their own dresses. Even some famous people don't get loans from everyone, as some are famous for destroying the loaned clotjong so rightly designers refuse to handout any further merch)

Kate has been in the Firm since 2011. Markle just came into the Firm so she could not possibly have surpassed Kate.

Kate's history has been doing as little work as possible and grabbing for the perks. I don't buy that she is thrifty with those expensive homes and her ordering new kitchens and so forth. I think her hairdressers do not come cheap.

Also, when some of the outfits were purchased by Markle it was before the wedding day I doubt Charles would pay for clothing pre wedding. She has her own money and actresses do get heavy discounts to promote designers.

I remember some actress talking about a 6 figure diamond necklace she was wearing (borrowed). This is common practice.

Meghan Markle Just Made History as the First Royal Nominated for a Teen Choice Award

Meghan Markle's royal style has just swiftly led her to make history, less than eight months after she and Prince Harry announced their engagement. Meghan has just been announced a nominee for the Teen Choice Award for Choice Style Icon. This is the first time a royal has ever been considered for an award for the U.S. show that started in 1999. Should Meghan win, it'd also be a first—and fascinating to see whether she'd attend or more likely, record a video acceptance speech for the honor.

New season, new 'do! Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney shows off a very short new hairstyle after cutting her long locks for summer
While she appears to have kept it the same shade of dark brown, Jessica chopped off quite a few inches and debuted new shoulder-length hair on Instagram this weekend.
'Le change is Le good,' she wrote on Instagram, tagging her stylist Ryan Dowell in the picture.
Though she didn't share more about the decision — and has generally been discrete and not given much away in interviews — the style expert has had a bit to say about her hair in the past.
The response has been so big one can only imagine how much the public would talk if Meghan ever decided to go shorter.
Even Jessica's husband Ben seemed bewildered by how many people cared about his wife's new 'do. Soon after her hairstyle was covered by a number media outlets, he screengrabbed the articles and shared them in his Instagram stories, joking: 'I'm thinking of frosting my tips for summer. Thoughts?'

What It Costs to Dress Like Meghan Markle: An Investigation
Since her engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle has made public appearances in elegant dresses by Prada, Oscar de la Renta, and Carolina Herrera, not to mention her show-stopping wedding gown by Givenchy. And though as an actress she was accustomed to being loaned dresses by fashion houses, as a royal she’s no longer entitled to take freebies—and the cost for her working wardrobe as a royal and royal-to-be is estimated to be as much as $1 million.
The Duchess of Sussex’s go-to designer, Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, charges in the region of $10,000 for a bespoke frock like the cream dress Meghan wore to Royal Ascot last week. While Meghan is given a discreet discount by some of her favorite designers, including Ralph & Russo, who made the $75,000 couture dress she wore for her official engagement pictures, her designer frocks can still be eye-poppingly expensive. There was the chic $18,000 Givenchy dress Meghan wore for her first away day to Cheshire with the Queen earlier this month, and the off-the-shoulder $4,000 Carolina Herrera skirt and top Meghan chose for Trooping the Colour. The royal family also covered the cost of Meghan’s two wedding dresses: the $265,000 boatneck Givenchy dress designed by Clare Waight Keller and the bespoke white halter-neck Stella McCartney evening frock, which are the two most expensive pieces in her wardrobe to date.

Does she have a sigar daddy, because we know that Charles and Harry wouldn’t waste all that money for clothes and accessories. They’ll have to be an investigation into how much her maintenance such as facials, makeup, hair, etc.

^Well, damn, this idiot is exposing the fact that they are getting clothes at a discounted rate just because she feels that she is "royal" and should wear uber expensive designers. And if the clothes are not at a discount rate then she has already gone through her savings in 6 months and will soon Charles' and Harry's in a year!

I didn't know that the RF paid for her wedding and wedding reception gowns?  ??? I thought she paid for each herself. And the sugars say she is a millionaire.

That’s ok.  The IRS taxes on FMV (fair market value) and any difference, if reduced, is subject to Gift Tax percentages which can be higher.  If she received the entire item as a gift then the whole shebang is taxed at income levels.  The BRF need their collective heads examined for wasting money and will be taxed as well because it went to a US citizen. The receiver will only owe it as income especially if used in a publication that paid for her photo.

Meghan Markle has gone from chic to a fashion disaster
But for the past six weeks, the new Duchess of Sussex’s fashion selections have come under fire: from her choice of sheer pantyhose to the tailoring of her dresses to her oversize pumps. Drawing particular ire was a blue and white Oscar de la Renta dress that she wore on June 17 to the wedding of Harry’s cousin. The Internet caught fire with incendiary criticisms of the $5,490 frock’s too-long sleeves and ill-fitting torso.
On Twitter, it was compared to both a sack of potatoes and the “Gone With the Wind” scenes where Scarlett O’Hara fashions a dress from curtains.  :tehe: :tehe:
The public disappointment with these perceived missteps may stem from the fact that the duchess is dealing with the pressures and expectations of her new role largely on her own. (Jessica gt dumped).  :cookie:
Before the wedding, Meghan had a secret style weapon: her best friend, Jessica Mulroney. Now, it seems they’re not working together as closely, and it shows.
But with Mulroney in Canada (where Meghan lived while starring on “Suits”) and the duchess, 36, in England, the new royal has been left to live up to the royal rules of decorum on her own.
“The royal family is a firm and the protocol is huge,” said British designer Caroline Castigliano. “We’re seeing everything about Meghan change. It’s very difficult when you’re 36 to do this — it’s far easier when you’re in your early 20s and they can mold and adapt you. It’s a much bigger job for Meghan. It must be unbelievably difficult that Meghan was a working woman and had her own style.” *really, she's broken quite a few and has gotten away wth it).
One of the biggest changes has been to her palette. Previously, Meghan wore plenty of bold hues: scarlet red, midnight blue, forest green, plus rich plaids and stripes. Now, she all but fades into the background in white, cream and the palest of pinks. Royal watchers say the wallflower look is in deference to Queen Elizabeth, to whom the duchess has been seen cozying up to at recent public events.
“At events with the queen, she lets Her Majesty shine,” said William Hanson, an expert on proper British etiquette. “The queen is top of the bill. Meghan is on the bill, not top of the bill.”  :thumbsup: :tehe:
With Mulroney back in Toronto, it seems Meghan has someone else guiding her, at least a bit.
“At the moment, she’s really dressing like Kate,” Castigliano said of Meghan’s sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge. “At this stage, Kate is probably giving her tons of advice on how to fit in.”
Sources say that Kate’s assistant, Natasha Archer, has been calling in clothes from designers for Meghan until she hires an assistant of her own.
One big difference, one source pointed out, is that Kate’s clothes “fit her like a glove” because all the designers know her sizing, while Meghan is still developing her relationships.
Castigliano agrees. In fact, she predicts that the duchess will slowly make a return to the stylish, youthful Meghan with whom the public first fell in love.
“Over the next year, Meghan will have more designers throwing themselves at her, and she will adapt her style,” she said. “It will be fabulous when she takes everything she learns and ‘Meghan-izes’ it.”  :tehe:

Meghan Markle Looks Summer-Ready in Sandals at Audi Polo Club
The former “Suits” actress stunned in a knee-length, gingham Shoshanna dress with an A-line skirt and tie at the waist. The American-made dress features flattering cut-in shoulders and retails for $395. She wore her hair underneath a casual hat with black ribbon trim — a style similar to previous hats she has worn.
The 36-year-old completed her look with brown sandals, reportedly by designer Sarah Flint. The New York-based designer has become a favorite of Markle’s, along with Aquazzura and Manolo Blahnik.
While Markle undoubtedly has an enviable wardrobe, her looks come at a high price tag. According to Entertainment Tonight, the Duchess of Sussex has worn $1 million worth of clothing since she and Prince Harry became engaged in November. Of course, a large portion of that total came from her wedding looks, with her Givenchy ceremony dress reportedly costing over $400,000 and her Stella McCartney reception gown costing more than $150,000.

The OTHER Meghan effect: Royal’s favourite jeweller reveals the hidden downside to support from the Duchess - as ‘nobody cares’ about their new pieces until she wears them
But one company has highlighted the hidden downside of royal endorsement after Meghan stepped out in countless pieces from their collection.
In an interview with Maclean's, a boss at Canadian jeweller Maison Birks described the Markle effect as being both 'positive' and 'slightly negative'.
Birks' chief marketing officer and vice president, Eva Hartling, told the publication: 'Obviously we’re not complaining.
'But all messaging pertaining to Birks right now has to do with the duchess wearing our pieces.
'We’re launching new collections in the fall, but nobody cares unless the duchess decides to buy a piece and wear it.'
The newlywed has worn pieces from the fine jewellery brand at almost every public engagement since announcing her betrothal to Prince Harry last year.
For one of her first outings as Harry's fiancée, in Edinburgh she wore a Birks Diamond Snowflake Ring and a Yellow Gold and Diamond Splash Ring.
She has since worn pieces from the jewellery brand worth tens of thousands, including Diamond Swirl earrings and countless gold rings.
Eva Hartling describes the Duchess' unofficial endorsement of Birks as a feat of 'organic PR' and hopes the company might even win a Royal Warrant.  :tehe:
Birks has also worked with Meghan's close friend, the well-connected stylist Jessica Mulroney, who helped curate her an outfit for her engagement photo call in November - Birks earrings included - and will almost certainly have brought the jeweller to her friend's attention.
Very important info.
The jewellers were approached by Meghan's 'entourage' to dress her mother Doria Ragland for the royal wedding, according to the article.
Meghan has worn pieces by Birks on at least ten occasions since stepping onto the royal stage last year, with her jewellery bill running into the tens of thousands.
But it seems she has not been afraid to splash out on her nearest and dearest either, with Maclean's revealing she approached public relations firm NKPR last year while on the hunt for a bracelet to give Harry for Christmas.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5920699/Birks-says-Meghan-Markle-endorsement-slightly-negative.html

How Meghan Markle’s unofficial royal endorsement is helping a Canadian company
Just as ‘influencer fatigue’ sets in, the value of a Meghan Markle plug for Birks Inc. rockets
by Anne Kingston Jul 4, 2018

For the past year, Birks Inc., a 139-year-old Montreal-based jewellery company, has found itself in the middle of a modern mercantile fairy tale with an unknown ending. It began in August 2017, when Meghan Markle, now Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, wore Maison Birks jewellery in her first public outing with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto. Since then, she has consistently modelled Birks’s tasteful, royal-family-appropriate items—at her engagement announcement in November 2017, at Christmas lunch with the Queen, then on a string of public appearances. Such was her brand loyalty that Hello! Canada magazine asked, “Will Meghan Markle wear Birks on her wedding day?”—another free plug. She didn’t. But her mother, Doria Ragland, and Jessica Mulroney, the Toronto-based stylist now famous as Markle’s “BFF,” both wore Birks pieces not available to the public until this coming fall. All were heavily promoted on Birks social media platforms and treated as news by mainstream media, garnering global advertising for Birks.
It’s a tale that also reflects the moment in marketing, one in which “influencers”—celebrities and social-media stars—have replaced advertising to the point of influencer gridlock. Products are promoted in “news” stories and gossip items, as seen in the New York Post’s May account, “Meghan Markle wears $10K earrings to royal wedding rehearsal,” which shared details of a private event that earned Birks another shout-out. In such a landscape, adjacency to the British royal family is marketing gold, publicity that money can’t buy. “They’re the biggest brand in the world,” says veteran royal watcher Patricia Treble of Write-Royalty.com. Birks saw an increase in website hits after Markle wore the brand at the Invictus Games, but the deluge began with the news she’d be joining the House of Windsor, says Eva Hartling, chief marketing officer and vice president for the Maison Birks line. The company saw a 400 per cent spike in online sales and views that day; the $995 earrings Markle wore sold out. It’s a happy coincidence that Birks jewellery became available in the U.K. a month before the engagement was announced.
The fairy godmother in this particular fairy tale is Jessica Mulroney, a well-connected fashion consultant known for styling Markle and, unofficially, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau. Birks hired her in 2011 as its “jewellery style expert” to share “tips with Birks clients as well as the press.” Birks no longer has a “formal relationship” with Mulroney, Hartling says, but they work on projects together. (Mulroney’s five-year-old daughter, a bridesmaid in the royal wedding, has appeared in Birks ads.) Mulroney introduced Markle to Birks, says Hartling, who adds the company never had a commercial relationship with the actress: “Meghan liked the line and purchased pieces,” she says. Markle’s “entourage” requested jewellery for her mother for the wedding, which was purchased, she says.
Such distinctions matter. The royal family’s brand equity entails distancing itself from commercial taint. (Sarah Ferguson was vilified for her money-making ventures and for trying to sell access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew.) They live in a freebie-free zone; transactional relationships are verboten. One minor exception is the “royal warrant of appointment,” a mark of recognition conferred on those who have supplied goods or services to the households of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales. Anyone receiving one has to follow strict rules, says Treble: “You can put the royal coat of arms on product, but you can’t reference the royal family in any commercial activity or you’ll have the royal warrant stripped. It has happened.”
Discretion is vital. An unofficial endorsement in the form of a royal wearing a brand can be worth millions: “The Kate effect” describes how items worn by the former Kate Middleton sell out in minutes. In April 2018, Women’s Wear Daily pegged the total “Markle effect” so far at US$212.1 million.
Markle’s new life is at a 180-degree remove from the one she left behind, society writer Shinan Govani observes: “Any instincts you have as an actress or influencer or someone in the world of fashion would have to be unlearned if you’re joining the Firm.” Early in her career, Markle visited “gifting suites,” where celebrities are photographed with free product; she’s been pictured with a homeopathic flu remedy, sports gear and bourbon. As her fame increased via her role on Suits, Markle positioned herself in the “lifestyle” realm with her popular blog The Tig and an Instagram presence with close to two million followers. She was named “brand ambassador” to clothing chain Reitmans, for which she designed a capsule collection. Brands gave her clothing, among them the Canadian company Line the Label, which Markle came across while shopping years before Harry entered the picture. “After Jessica started styling her, she contacted us to send images of the collections,” says Natasha Koifman, president of NKPR, a Toronto PR agency that represents Line. Markle was a great fit with the brand, says John Muscat, president of Line: “We’re careful about who we work with,” he tells Maclean’s. “Meghan always looks so well put together.” The $799 white coat Markle famously wore for the engagement announcement, renamed “the Meghan,” was a “gift” to Mulroney, Muscat says, part of a wardrobe put together for Markle’s move to Britain. Mulroney called the morning of the engagement to say the coat had been chosen, Koifman recalls. Within an hour and a half, more than 300 orders poured in.
Unlike some celebrities, Markle pays for items, Koifman says, recounting how the actress called her a year ago, before her engagement. She was having trouble finding a specific bracelet made by a brand NKPR represents. “She wanted to buy it for Harry for Christmas,” Koifman says: “We found it, and she paid for it.” The story of a future princess buying a gift for her prince is destined to drive sales more than any ad if that brand is named—so here Maclean’s has chosen not to identify it, even if Koifman did.
Anyone dealing with the royal family must be discreet and follow protocol, says Treble: “People who don’t deal with royals can get verbose,” she says. “If they talk too much, they’ll get dropped.” (Mulroney declined Maclean’s interview request.) Birks was called out for overstepping in 2015 when it issued a press release after Grégoire Trudeau wore a Birks diamond brooch to meet Queen Elizabeth II: “Sophie Grégoire Trudeau . . . dazzled in Birks jewellery,” it read. Outrage over the brooch’s $7,125 price forced the PMO to issue a statement explaining the jewellery was on loan from Birks, who hadn’t informed them they planned to turn it into an ad. Eyebrows were also raised hours after the wedding when People.com ran a gushy story about Mulroney, calling her the “unofficial maid of honour” and referring to Birks as “Meghan’s go-to jeweller.” Hartling was the only one quoted in the story, which listed the Birks pieces worn by Mulroney to the wedding and evening party. On Twitter, Govani criticized the publicity as “ill-advised,” comparing it to “day-after-the-Met-Gala ‘day trading’ and branding tic-tac-toe,” a reference to the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, a blatant billboard for fashion houses and brands. Overt commercialism clashes with the royal brand, says Govani, noting “honorary maid of honour” is a term neither Markle nor the palace used: “To translate common celebrity vernacular and put it in context of the royal wedding shows that someone isn’t thinking. That’s my charitable take on it.”
At a time of what Hartling calls “influencer fatigue,” an unofficial royal endorsement has rising value. Unilever, whose brands include Dove and Axe, recently announced it won’t work with influencers who buy social-media followers. “Consumers see through mechanisms that don’t feel authentic,” Koifman says.
Hartling says Birks has been careful. It doesn’t use Markle’s image on social media, only from media coverage, which can amount to the same thing. A “royal wedding jewellery inspiration” page on its website includes items worn by Markle, Mulroney and Ragland; visitors can “swipe through to see the Birks jewels the Duchess has worn.” Birks’s current print ad campaign features Canadian actor Amanda Brugel, who bears a decided resemblance to Markle.
As history has shown, royal anointment can be a mixed blessing. The brand Issa exploded after Kate Middleton wore one of its dresses for her engagement; the company eventually shuttered operations after the founder, Daniella Helayel, sold a controlling stake in the company to finance its expansion. Whether royal fairy dust settles on Birks remains to be seen. The latest six-month results, ending Sept. 23, 2017, don’t seem to include any “Markle effect”: sales were down $5.1 million to $49.8 million from the year earlier. The stock price has been volatile, rising from 24 cents in January 2016 to $3.04 in July 2016, the month Markle and the prince are said to have met. It fell to $1.06, then spiked at $2.69 in November 2017, two weeks before the engagement announcement. In late June, it was trading under $1.50.
Hartling sees the duchess’s connection to Birks as “positive” and “slightly negative” for the company: “On one hand, the exposure is a textbook example of what organic PR should be: a consumer who fell in love with the brand becomes the best-known person on the planet.” The free press also aids the company’s stated goal to become a “global luxury brand.” Discussing the “slightly negative,” Hartling is cautious: “Obviously we’re not complaining,” she says. “But all messaging pertaining to Birks right now has to do with the duchess wearing our pieces. We’re launching new collections in the fall, but nobody cares unless the duchess decides to buy a piece and wear it.” (That said, both Ragland and Mulroney showcased the wares before an audience estimated at up to two billion around the world.) The duchess could stop wearing Birks, Hartling says: “What does that mean for us?” That hasn’t happened, with post-wedding images of the duchess wearing Birks plastered on the company’s Instagram. “Royalty is looking good on her!” read one caption. Hartling remains hopeful, noting Birks had a royal warrant in the ’30s, when it supplied silverware to the royal family: “Maybe we’ll get another one.” Maybe. That could be one way this fairy tale ends.

^that and IMO, it shows she knows nothing about Harry’s taste and the traditional Christmas gifts the family exchange. Harry’s shown over the years to be a simple in regards to fashion and wears simple inexpensive but meaningful jewelry like the beaded bracelet that’s from Africa and the bracelet that Charles gave him.
All the Details of Meghan Markle's Banana Yellow Dress at the Youth Commonwealth Reception
The duchess stepped out alongside her husband for the Commonwealth Youth Challenge Reception, and for the special occasion, she chose to wear a punchy, banana yellow shift dress by American designer (and former Lady Gaga stylist) Brandon Maxwell. (The look, originally $1,495 but currently on sale for $523, is almost sold out.) She showed off the boat-neck by sweeping her hair into a low bun.

Well with all the articles about Diana not being told about the gag gifts the royals gave to each other (she got cashmere sweaters and was not told about the customs during her first Christmas married to Charles) Meghan certainly should have read up about it especially since she is claiming to be a DIana fan.

The gag gifts are for when the whole family is together and exchanges them, the branches or anyone who wants to for whatever reason can still (in private - i.e. not during the whole family exchange) give more expensive or meaningful gifts. Besides, no one can really think that all they ever give each other is cheap tat & gag gifts? Eg spouses will for sure exchange "traditional" expensive gifts like jewellery, stationery, etc.

We get it - Meghan is dressed better than anyone else, in fact, everyone else's outfit must be criticized a lot so that saint Meghan's outfit is better than everyone else's.

The outfit is a copycat of Angelina Jolie's but with a flying saucer hat. Olive green is not in the colors of this season so - it's blah. Doesn't look bad but it doesn't look good too. Most women stayed with off white or pale blue. I think there was a dress code or something. But of course - Meghan must try to stand out, being oh so pretty and all that.

Now, about Kate's outfit .. it is pretty nice and DM already spotted that she's having the same style as on the other christenings. Yes, it's white. Camila's outfit is white too. They will both be queens. Future queens wear white on christenings. This has nothing to do with taste or color preferences.

Pipa's dress is one size bigger. It doesn't fit around her chest and the sleeves are too long but my wild guess is that this is so that the dress fits her belly and she doesn't wear maternity clothes too soon.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on July 09, 2018, 08:20:44 pm
I think a pastel shade  would have been better for Kate IMO . I've been to Christenings and the mothers do not wear white. I don't get why Camilla wore white. Upstage the mum perhaps? Odd.

Oh please Meghan's not a saint. Her dress is OK, the color maybe could have been lighter but it was acceptable.

Meghan's dress did not make her stand out, in fact it was less noticeable than others she has worn.

I have seen other royal christenings in photographs and there is no rule that the future Queens Must wear white. Princess Diana didn't at the Christenings of her sons. It is no tradition. Camilla tries to wear white to a lot of things though. I think Kate's tradition is to wear white but it is not mandatory. I never heard of such a "rule."

Pippa's dress is ill fitting. Is she having a boy, it's blue blue blue for her lately.

I found her very chic here. All of them (Camilla, Meghan, Kate, Pippa and Carole) are cunning social climbers (with AWFUL skin) but meghan was hands down the best dressed in this christening IMO.

I like kate outfit in charlotte christening, at this one and at george's  :thumbsdown:

DM has no clue about what was paid for those outfits. Kate does not come cheap. She is high maintenance pretending to be low maintenance. I'm not buying Kate's 'Thrifty' act. At least someone must have told Kate that a third Christening spectacular was not going to happen.

As I revealed on @GMA, Meghan’s friend and style collaborator Jessica Mulroney quietly flew in to London last week for final prep on her #RoyalVisitIreland wardrobe as well as styling that stunning @Brandonmaxwell dress, #RAF100 @Dior look and @RalphLauren christening outfit.



The Duchess and her designer Dublin wardrobe! Meghan dazzles in £17,000 worth of high-end labels in the space of just three hours on day two of her royal visit to Ireland with Harry

Meghan's second and final day in Dublin got off to a busy start performing two engagements before lunch time - and her wardrobe was equally busy.

The Duchess of Sussex wore two outfits in the space of an hour and a half, in the form of an estimated total of £17,04 worth of designer labels.

The newly-minted royal, 36, looked typically glamorous as she kicked off the day in a dress by French designer Roland Mouret for a visit to the official residence of President Michael D Higgins.

Meghan is a known friend of Mouret's and wore a £1,350 version of her dress today on the eve of her nuptials, the one worn this morning is strikingly similar and has an estimated cost of £1,500.

When it came to her accessories the newly-wedded royal stuck simple black accents in the form of a suede shoe and an oversize black leather tote by designer Fendi - costing an eye-watering £3,850.00.

She did showcase a flash of bling with a pair of elegant diamond earrings at a cost of £6,886 from Birks as she took Harry's arm before meeting the president.

Also, did you see the DM article about Meghan not removing the plastic from the bottom of the handbag she was holding when they arrived in Dublin? The handbag was "given" to Megs to borrow from Jessica because she didn't take the time to remove the plastic! What a shame.

Trousers a bit tight as you can see from the back seam and the pockets.  What is is it with this critter, why does she want everything skin tight. Also the jacket is a slightly different shade to the trousers, it is not a suit.

As for this frock she wore, words fail me, what can I say, wrong at every level, and look just how tight it is, the inappropriate bra, you name it, colour not good on her either.

Just found this article again, giving info on the unnecessary entourage that went to Ireland with the Sus-sex dorks, but first piccie is the "girl Friday"/assistant private secretary who is helping her with everything.  Looking at her piccie below no wonder murky looks such a mess.  On an official tour for the rf, a member of staff, and she arrives looking like that?  Seriously?  Someone should tell her it is her work, her job, not a jolly for the weekend with her pals.  She looks a messy wreck to me.

I don't understand the need for all the staff and expense for someone not only this new and untested but as far down the line as she is.  She's never going to be more than she is right now.

The bottom line, tho, is the will of the people to whom they answer.  As long as things stay the same, the results will be the same.  This kind of expensive wardrobe would bring out effigies in the US if we were enabling people who did absolutely nothing of significance in return.  They are not responsible to millions of people's safety or needs 24/7.  They're show ponies!

Plus, her dresses are just one catwalk after another.  Her bearing is severely lacking so the smug strut downgrades any passable clothing to being show off-y and lacking any stature at all.

I'd be really angry if i was voiceless with this kind of nonsense but a demand of the expense of these slinky clothes and jewels requires inspection and clarity released to the public.  That should be their right.

She needs some variation to her wardrobe. Diana's wardrobes started out drab but then she branched out, even at one time wearing a tuxedo to an event and her gowns were great and not stodgy.

The royals though don't give out financial statements with every single expense analyzed. I doubt this will ever happen.

Diana was barely 20 when she married. Very different from someone who's 36 (about to be 37) and has been in the public eye for a while (it's not like she's never had money before).

50K worth of variation at someone else's expense ... yep, yep, she certainly has needs.  lol

The grey dress is actually light blue an it will look gorgeous on a woman with actual boobs. Sadly, Megsy is a prime example what not to wear when you have no real boobs and are with chicken legs that don't look good on dresses or skirts ... but hey, she's only 36. She has good 10-15 years ahead of her to learn how to dress and put it on her resume right next to stripping.

Who's footing the bill, Meghan? Duchess of Sussex spends huge £155,000 on 15 new outfits since the Royal Wedding
In 15 high-profile outings since the wedding, Meghan has debuted 15 brand new looks, each one more ostentatious — and expensive — than the last.
By way of comparison, the Duchess of Cambridge spent £119,000 on new outfits throughout the whole of 2017, and a more modest £100,000 in 2016.
Less than two months after joining the royal ranks, Meghan's clothing budget has already outstripped that. Indeed, if she continues at her current rate, she could spend almost £1 million by the end of the year.

Quite possibly because I can't imagine Charles allowing this on his watch but it doesn't matter. It's all about the optics and they are horrid. She's got two options: admit she got freebees (Not going to work because that's against the rules) or say she bought them (Not going to work because being Marie Antoinette didn't work for Marie Antoinette and it will work even less in today's climate). Either way, she's hosed and she has no one to blame but herself. Bottom line is she should have paid attention to the precedent already established in this family instead of conducting herself like she's starring in a remake of Pretty Woman.

PLATELL'S PEOPLE: Why Kate needs a word with Meghan
Today we will witness a remarkable double act on Wimbledon’s Centre Court, as two duchesses watch the women’s final, performing their first public event together without their husbands.
Most of us haven’t a clue whether those sisters-in-law get on or how close they are. But their joint outing today to the royal box presents Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, with a chance to have a quiet word with newcomer Megs, the Duchess of Sussex, on where she’s going wrong. Because, boy, she needs it.
Kate could start by telling Megs the royals do not, ever, interfere in politics. In the 56 days since her marriage, Meghan has declared herself a humanitarian, proud feminist and, in Ireland this week, a supporter of the liberalisation of abortion laws.
She needs to understand one does not flaunt one’s humanitarian credentials. Modelling yourself on Angelina Jolie may be fine for a soap star but not for a royal.
But such solecisms pale into insignificance compared to the American’s shameless extravagance. During her 24-hour visit to Ireland, the thing that grabbed the headlines was that she changed into four different designer outfits with a total value of £28,000.
The £2,000 worth of shoes she wore on that trip is more than many British families have to live on for a month.
As the Mail reveals today, Megs has clad herself in around £155,000 worth of Givenchy, Dior, Chanel and Prada since her wedding. That’s infinitely more than Kate spent in the entire year after marrying William.
Yes, the former TV actress looks stylish, yes, she is lovely, but she has a lot to learn about this country.
Kate should quietly tell her we don’t like moral posturing and we certainly don’t like ostentatious displays of wealth. Indeed, Megs could do worse than look to Kate for an example of how to do it.
In the early days, Kate endeared herself to us by shopping in the High Street — and she’s still as happy wearing Reiss or Jigsaw as she is couture, even for special occasions.
She recycles her clothes, too, just like the Queen and Princess Anne. She wore a four-year-old coat to Meghan’s wedding. But I have yet to see Megs in the same outfit twice.
Meghan needs to understand there’s a lot of respect and affection for how royalty is not just another branch of showbiz, where #MeToo values hold sway and the dress style is red-carpet, off-the-shoulder and always with a coquettish pout for the cameras.
One final piece of advice. Perhaps Meghan should book an appointment with Rigby & Peller, providers of lingerie to the royals — and get herself a proper-fitting bra.  :thumbsup:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-5952813/PLATELLS-PEOPLE-Kate-needs-word-Meghan.html
During the engagement period, she was presented as an out spoken feminist and an an American star who's views were welcomed by the royal family. Waity's not her minder.  :bored:

I can't believe I'm saying this, but this nouveau riche newcomer could indeed learn a thing or two from Waity.
Waity or her PR machine were at least smart enough to mix in high street stuff, even the pricier high st stuff (eg LK Bennett), to be fair Waity seems to like the high street anyway.
With Murky it's all high labels only, coting 1000s per piece and next to no British brands. Jeez.

Word has it that JM has created a PR company where the brands can buy MM's merching as a means of "entering new markets and countries". MM of course just wears the merchandise and doesn't get paid directly - JM's company gets paid.

That said, the real uproar will come when we learn how much is the cost of the plane rides, the security, the entourage of 11 people, ... the wigs, the makeup, the padded bras. I think that these things get published once a year. I don't remember how they were called but it will be interesting how much the political correctness of brf costs the taxpayer.

Catherine as well as the rest of the family are smart enough not to flaunt how much and what they spend on in the face of those who foot the bill: the taxpayers, unlike Meghan. If MM merches: appalling for an hrh. If she doesn't: apoalling for spending like she sees money for the first time.

If only she was choosing outfits that look good on her like Melania, then people wouldn't be that outraged by her representation of UK, brf, the feminists, the minorities ... etc. etc. But she doesn't dress well either. It's a loose-loose-loose for her.

Why even tell the press and have them focus on that, rather the focus should be on the place, people or charity they are visiting. Let the press do research on their own to find out what designer they are wearing.  :sigh:

^^True, the rf are not like the rest of us and they never will be. However. Meghan doesn't fit in. BRF are smart not to show how much they spend. Once a year their public spending is revealed but that's it. They don't go to laineygossip to brag that they'll go to shop where the future queen shops like Meghan did, they don't call daddy to give an interview how distressed they are, they don't go to blindgossip to spill how Charles and Camilla sleep, and they certainly don't go on an endless shopping spree.

Meghan does not fit at all. She's everything brf is not. I can't wait to see the yearly spending report of the royals because this is where we'll get the numbers of how much she costs to the taxpayer, besides the expensive and ill-fitting obnoxious nouveau riche shopping sprees. Also, I am not defending the Cambridges but if you're stuck with an old building where you can't level it to the ground and start from scratch it is a money pit to renovate it. I remember the scandal but a lot of money went to renovate the pipes. Can you imagine in the 21st century to get yellowish water from the pipes and on top of that to have your taps separated so that you either have hot water or cold water but not both at the same time.

Meghan's secret style weapon: How the Duchess of Sussex relies on boat necklines to look 'slightly uncovered and sexy' – but still appropriate
Fashion experts say that Meghan's choice of neckline allows her to respect royal protocol, while still looking 'a little sexy'.  ???
Stylist Lucas Armitage told FEMAIL: 'The boat neck is an often overlooked neckline in fashion, it’s safe to say it’s not one overlooked by Meghan.
'I think it’s her way of respecting royal tradition but wanting to appear slightly uncovered and still a little sexy.
'Royal protocol means necklines must be quite covered so a boat neckline is a clever way of being revealing but not actually showing any cleavage or arms.'
He added: 'It has become her signature look and one the shows her amazing figure off to perfection.'  :tehe:
Stylist and brand consultant Alexandra Fullerton previously told FEMAIL: 'Meghan is putting her own "demure but modern" spin on the now ubiquitous Bardot neckline, which continues to dominate the high street.
'The shoulder is this year's hottest erogenous zone - thanks to the Bardot - and the Duchess of Sussex's adoption of the boat neckline cements this,' she said.  bignono

Prince Charles Is "Extremely Unhappy" About Meghan Markle's Wardrobe Spending
Pinching pennies clearly isn't Meghan Markle's strong suit. Since she and Prince Harry, 33, announced their engagement in November, Prince Charles — who bankrolls both his children and their spouses — has spent a reported $1 million just on the American actress’ designer wardrobe. Unlike thrifty Kate Middleton, who often wears Zara and other high-street brands, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, has "expensive taste" and it’s breaking the bank, a source told Life & Style in the magazine's latest issue, on newsstands now.
In June alone, Prince Harry’s wife stepped out in an $18,000 Givenchy cape dress for her first solo engagement with Queen Elizabeth, purchased a $4,000 Carolina Herrera off-the-shoulder top and skirt for the Trooping the Colour ceremony, and arrived in a $6,000 Oscar de la Renta printed maxi dress for Princess Diana’s niece’s wedding. "Since she moved to London, Meghan's been spending money like it's going out of style," the source said.
Considering Charles, 69, is the one picking up the tab, "He’s extremely unhappy about the fortune he’s having to spend on Meghan’s upkeep," snickered the source, who believes the rags-to-riches royal racked up a $2.5 million tab after joining The Firm.
"He feels like a walking ATM machine and is so annoyed that he’s planning to sit her and Harry both down for a stern talking-to," the insider added. Keep calm, Meghan — and start raiding Kate’s closet!

But the prize goes to In Touch for saying that kate and meghan are pregnant and will deliver babies on the Same Day. Charles would not shell out all that money on her, IMO, he would just stop giving her money,  he's cheap when it comes to giving other people money. He does not "have to" spend money on her much less the alleged amounts and he would not do it. Charles is not stupid, he would not jeopardize the PR boost he got by being kind to Meghan and Doria by "making it known" he dislikes Meghan. IMO anyway

^ True, but "protecting" a name is becoming increasingly harder. For one the royals aren't and can't be trademarked (which is why anyone can sell commemorative tat with their faces, names etc on it; also why they aren't allowed to give autographs and sign stuff beyond guest books, letters etc), for another, a "problem" that all of us have: it used to be just a website domain, then one social media, then another, and another, and another.... It's become ridiculous with all the sites and possibilities to keep up with (and have everything as "verified" account).
And trademarking a name is also hard, because the license lasts only a limited number of years and if in that time you haven't done anything with it (built a business around that name) and hence are lacking proof of "use", then the trademark can't be renewed and is lost to the applicant and open for others who want to use that name (just look at obnoxious Beyonce & Jay-Z and "Blue Ivy [Carter]" as trademark).
Even next to verified and offical accounts (that are in use) there are still a tonne of parodies etc. So it's also inevitable anyway.

I get what you're saying and I agree, but it's also become nigh on impossible to do that...

I hope & don't think it's too OT :shy:

^^^^ I can easily believe that. Who's bankrolling Murky and Haz but Chuck? And Chuck is notoriously stingy, I bet he's boiling. Seriously, a story I do believe totally. Her spending since engagement has been out of control, no one can deny that.

Charles would not give her all that money to spend on clothing. No way. IMO. She had her own money pre wedding and I think she spent her own. There's no rule that royal brides can't keep their own money. I also think the dresses are heavily discounted.

It conveniently put in things on that list like earrings supposedly gifted from the Queen to Meghan and then, when each engagement total was gone through, put the total of the earrings (unknown, btw) in again! Things like Meghan's engagement ring are sometimes put in these lists as well.

First, I do not believe, and have never believed that Meghan, Kate, Sophie etc pay top price for their garments, hats and accessories. Ever. I've read over the years that everyone from the QM at Hartnell down gets about half the price taken off for prestige reasons. (There is actually a letter from the QM to a fashion house complaining about the prices and hinting strongly that she would like a generous discount.)

I have never read, and also don't believe, that prestigious fashion houses would tell the Press, especially tabloids, how much the price of each garment is that they sell to high profile clients. It would be extremely bad business practice and their clientele would object. Therefore IMO the Fail and the other papers that have copied it have gone on a wild guesstimate with regard to Meghan's clothes and accessories.

Some of Meghan's clothes worn just after her marriage weren't ordered, whipped up and paid for within a week. I think that some of her things were ordered before her wedding, and probably paid for by her and/or Harry. Charles doesn't start paying for his daughter in laws' clothing within five minutes of the marriage register being signed. It takes time. Also, if her clothing had really come in at over a million that would be hundreds of thousands more that he (Charles) pays out for Camilla each year. As Camilla has always been and remains, his main concern, that pricing by the Fail just isn't believable, IMO.

Meghan Markle Has Spent Over $200,000 on Her Duchess Wardrobe So Far
Everything she’s purchased since the wedding.
Including the likes of Givenchy, Stella McCartney, Oscar de la Renta, and more, her 15 brand-new looks since becoming an official member of the royal family have already cost £155,575, which is equivalent to nearly $207,000, The Daily Mail reported. And in her 24-hour trip to Dublin with the queen, she donned more than £28,000 (roughly $37,200) worth of apparel and accessories. By comparison, Markle's sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, spent about £119,000 (about $158,000) in the year 2017, according to The Daily Mail.
While the royal family is forbidden from accepting gifts or loans, one must take this number with a grain of salt, as she could be purchasing the looks with steep discounts. Additionally, while Meghan has clearly come out of the gate with an arsenal of looks we can’t stop talking about (many custom and all definitely brand-new), she still has a lifetime ahead of her to repeat pieces, accessories, or full-blown looks as both Kate Middleton, Princess Diana, and Queen Elizabeth II have all been known to do.

IMO Charles is not paying for anything Markle. She, together with JM, procure the merchandise herself. But it still looks bad on him because there seems to be a loose cannon in his household.

It's easy to gauge the price of the garments. Indeed, none of them would officially comment and reveal the price of their stuff or how much a customer paid. But it is dead easy to guess how much each article costs, based on off-the-rack clothes and also because it is well known how much these houses take for custom clothes, haute couture & ready-wear. The prices are not conjured out of thin air.

That the Winds get heavy discounts and take freebies is well known, but they are technically forbidden from doing so and are supposed to pay full retail price as per their own rules. I think that came into effect after Liz QM passed, as a rule set up by Charles, possibly to appease the public, I'm not too sure about the details.

The autumn wardrobe is beyond weird though. That does point towards merching, which the Winds aren't allowed to do either...

Meghan Markle Wears Edgy Canadian Designer (from Her Own Closet!) for Outing with Prince Harry
Wearing a sleeveless trench dress from up-and-coming Canadian label, NONIE, the royal opted for a more edgy look as she stepped out with Prince Harry at an exhibition marking the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela.
And after a flurry of new fashion purchases, the $825 NONIE dress, from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, is actually a re-wear from her own closet. The duchess purchased it from the Calgary-based designer while living in Toronto, just before she moved to London in the fall of 2017.
Meghan’s best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney is also a fan of the ready-to-wear womenswear label.

She should really invest in a decent bra or nip covers. This just looks very nasty.  :nervous:
Since it’s too big for her, she either got it off of Jessica or she’s lost so much weight since she arrived in the U.K. Either way, she looked a bit sloppy.

She's a free spirit ... she doesn't need a bra.

She hasn't lost weight imo. She's been that skinny all the time. The dress is ok - summer dress, appropriate length, new sping on classic British trench coat, nice pastel color. The posing and merching was done well too. She just missed to put on a bra. Maybe that's what Mandela's grand daughter was shocked about .. she got flashed by a royal without being asked.

  Hey big spender: How Meghan Markle's royal wardrobe tots up compared to Kate Middleton's
One can't help but compare and contrast Meghan's luxe wardrobe to that of Kate's during her first few months as a royal in 2011.
The Duchess of Cambridge quickly became known for her thrifty ways, championing high street brands such as Zara, Reiss and L.K Bennett, not to mention her knack of recycling outfits. In contrast, Meghan has delved straight into the haute couture designs of Givenchy, Dior and Oscar de la Renta.
First... appearance as a member of the royal family
The Duchess of Cambridge wearing Reiss, £175 
The Duchess of Sussex wearing Goat, £590
First... day at the races
The Duchess of Cambridge wearing Reiss, £675
The Duchess of Sussex wearing Givenchy, £3,000
First... solo outing with the Queen
The Duchess of Cambridge wearing L.K. Bennett, £520
The Duchess of Sussex wearing Givenchy, £5,000
First... wedding guest look
The Duchess of Cambridge wearing Zara, £29.99
The Duchess of Sussex wearing Oscar de la Renta, £3,922
First... overseas tour
The Duchess of Cambridge wearing Erdem, £2,148
The Duchess of Sussex wearing Givenchy, £1,905
Final tally:
The Duchess of Cambridge = £3,548
The Duchess of Sussex = £14,417  bignono

Is Meghan getting fashion advice over the PHONE? How the Duchess’ best friend Jessica Mulroney is masterminding the royal’s wardrobe from 3,500 miles away in Canada
It appears Meghan's close friend Jessica Mulroney is acting as her long-distance stylist - masterminding her royal wardrobe from some 3,500 miles away in Toronto. 
The Duchess, 36, toured the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibit at London's South Bank on Tuesday wearing a sleeveless trench coat by the Canadian brand House of Nonie selected by Toronto-based Jessica - suggesting the two friends could be discussing Meghan's looks for high-profile appearances over the phone or on email.
The thrilled designer behind House of Nonie, Nina Kharey, publicly thanked Jessica on the brand's Instagram account, and called Meghan's outing in its $1,085 (£629) dress 'an amazing day for us'. 
Writer and royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted to say the TV stylist had also had a hand in the £1,300 vibrant yellow Brandon Maxwell dress Meghan wore to a Commonwealth reception at Marlborough House in London last week, her olive green ensemble at Prince Louis' christening at St James's Palace, and the Dior LBD she wore to mark the centenary of the RAF.

I’ll wear the royal trousers, Meghan! The Duchess of Sussex wants to wear a tux (just like Princess Diana) on their tour Down Under... but Harry gives the thumbs down

It has been said the Duchess of Sussex prefers to wear the trousers in her marriage, but she may not be wearing them for her forthcoming tour of Australia. The Mail on Sunday understands that Prince Harry, perhaps sailing towards dangerous marital waters, has expressed his views over his wife’s latest test of Royal convention after she ordered a range of designer suits – and even a tuxedo – to wear during their October trip.

Although Meghan’s penchant for cigarette trousers and stylish flares has won her fashion plaudits since she began official duties, the style is said to be barely tolerated by Royal aides, who want her to stick to the traditional demure skirts and opaque tights.

And Harry, who has been sitting in on some of Meghan’s meetings at Kensington Palace with ‘special projects teams’ from various designers, is said to have given the thumbs-down to a masculine Stella McCartney tuxedo suit his wife picked out for a glitzy evening event during the tour.

This newspaper has been told that Meghan has been expressing frustration with some of the monarchy’s archaic traditions.

It is the latest sign that Meghan, for all the duties and conventions of her new life as a Royal, is determined to remain her own woman. And it is enough to have sparked a debate among courtiers over her penchant for wearing trousers on Royal occasions.

Though the tuxedo look is undeniably sharp and stylish, and would flatter Meghan’s yoga-honed figure, we understand that even Harry agrees it would be a bridge too far to wear a trouser suit to an important Commonwealth occasion. The final say, of course, ultimately comes from the Queen – who is said to be uneasy at the sight of women wearing any trousers other than jodhpurs (utter bs, Liz, Anne et al have all worn trousers and trouser suits over the years, in private and offical). It might also, perhaps, be a reminder of fashion rebellions by Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Can I get some credit for exposing Jessica as Meghan's designer clothing "pusher" 5 days before she and Harry appeared at the Nelson Mandela Exhibit? Because at that appearance the designer of that hideous sleeveless trench dress/coat thanked Jessica in her Instagram post, pretty much confirming that Jessica gave/sent it to Meghan.  :cookie:

I really don't need credit, I'm just being funny. I feel like I am psychic sometimes  :tehe:

I have a theory: perhaps Jessica is getting sent the designer clothes and then sends them to Meghan, therefore people/investigators can't say that Meghan is accepting freebies from the designers firsthand, Jessica is her middleman.

Also, did you see the DM article about Meghan not removing the plastic from the bottom of the handbag she was holding when they arrived in Dublin? The handbag was "given" to Megs to borrow from Jessica because she didn't take the time to remove the plastic! What a shame.

I don't see any point to waste money on this tour when Wills and Waity went to that region not too long ago.

The main reason for the tour is for the Invictus Games. As they are an annual event Harry has to go overseas for at least a week every year for these games and now will take his wife with him. Due to the distance it is not unusual for NZ and some of the Pacific island Commonwealth countries to add on an invitation to cut down the costs - Australia will pay for them to come out and put up a lot of the costs for the side visits to Tonga and Fiji (NZ will pay some of those expenses).

They will be the fourth and fifth British Royals to visit Australia this year after Charles, Camilla and Edward were here in April and there was a lot of criticism for Australia having to pay the cost of them coming out for the Commonwealth Games but so far there has been very little criticism of Harry's visit with people looking forward to it.

My principal had to send out a reminder letter to parents yesterday informing them that there will be no permission given for students to take a day off school to attend the Invictus Games as she had half a dozen parents write in for permission to pull their kids out for the week and a couple wanted to only take the kids out to 'see Harry and Meghan'. She decided to act early so that it was clear that she would be listed them as 'truants' if that was the reason given (they will still go but will use some other excuse - such as 'sick').

William and Kate were in Sydney during the school holidays and talking to many of the kids after the holidays they were comparing notes on where they had gone to see them. That though was over four years ago - Charles and Camilla have been here twice since then.

Funny how as time goes by the standards of women brought into the royal family’s diminished as people say that it’s a different time and the monarchy needs to modernize, but they don’t lower the expectations of the public’s expectations to genuflect to them. Having this woman a HRH and cart blanc to basically shun many decent royal traditions is quite insulting to those that married in after having to to the lines for years prior and still got less that this chick afterwards.
IMO, both women are the same in that they are dominant of their prince’s and wanted to have their own way with the rules. Both have multiple marriages and sexual ways. Perfect comparison if you ask me.

Times have changed… but not THAT much! Meghan’s polo outfit looks VERY similar to one she wore before becoming royalty (but costs three times as much)
But it seems Meghan has not completely forgone her sartorial style, after stepping out in an outfit today that was almost identical to one she wore in 2016.
The Duchess of Sussex's £2,357 Carolina Herrera dress, which she picked for the Sentebale Polo Cup on Thursday, bears an uncanny resemblance to the Yigal Azrouel shirt dress - but costs almost three times the price.
While the exact cost of the Azrouel number is not known, similar styles retail at around £700, just a snip of the Herrera number.

^What?!  That's $3200 for a denim dress to US folks.  I don't care how anyone defends her spending, this is wrong.  It sets a tone, an example and completely blows her credibility as a humanitarian and "grounded in other people's suffering" nonsense right clean out of the water.  I also don't care if she was given these monstrously expensive clothes as presents from a wealthy benefactor.  Refuse them.  Ask the benefactor to donate the $ to charity instead.

She's so full of herself and the new access to money that she is utterly blind to the breeding of resentment, hostility and revulsion that is growing against her.

True.  But with all due respect, and I’ve tried explaining this before, everyone thinks when they marry they are “In Love”.  Fact.  In reality couples are generally only in the honeymoon phase which is otherwise known as "In Lust".  That feeling is mistaken for true married love and anyone could be fooled by it, including Harry or Meghan.

Meghan’s VERY subtle style tweaks revealed: Duchess has ditched bare shoulders and racy hemlines for demure designer pieces since leaving the red carpet to become a royal
Fashion-watchers have noted a dramatic transformation in the Duchess of Sussex's wardrobe in recent months, with Meghan adopting a more conservative look in line with the strict sartorial demands of being a royal.
Mini dresses have been swapped for A-line skirts, shoulders for long sleeves, and plunging necklines for her beloved bateau neck.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5996891/Meghan-Markles-modest-wardrobe-makeover.html
Now she looks a mess in I’ll fitt expensive clothes and often dressed inappropriately for occasions. The often tight clothing that displays her boobs are very off putting. Her high heels that are often too big for her makes her look like a woman of ill repute and high/drunk as she’s often hanging onto Harry the few times she lost her balance.

Blind Item #4
How do you make a little extra money if you have no income and are not allowed to work to generate any income but definitely have some things you want to buy and others you need to pay off to keep things quiet? Well, if you are this former actress you get clothes from friends that were given to them for free that you will wear. You then have the person in charge of the checkbook buy those clothes at full market value. The friends then split the money with our former actress 50/50. She is actually making more money now from this little ruse than she ever did acting or yachting. She was never a really big earner yachting wise.

Prince Harry Wiped His Lips All Crazy After Meghan Markle Kissed Him And I’m LOSING It
Though there has been an inordinate amount of drama surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship, the royal couple seems solidly in love. We know this because at his wedding, Prince Harry bit his lip during a longing glance at his wife-to-be — the universal sign of you’re-finna-get-it-tonight.
But a recent lip-related incident at the Sentebale Polo Cup may have given at least a tiny bit of credence to the rumors surrounding the royal couple; the most important of which are 1) Thomas Markle’s assertion that his daughter has been forcing a “pained smile” and is in actuality “terrified” of her stressful new life and 2) The Duchess of Sussex is a robot who can’t blink.
Let me lay the scene: Markle made a surprise appearance at the charity polo match to cheer on her husband from the royal box. The duchess then took to the stage for the presentation ceremony in order to bestow the winning trophy to Harry’s team and a big ole kiss on Harry’s lips.
At which point the prince quickly turned his head AND WIPED HIS MOUTH with the BACK OF HIS HAND, as though the kiss was sloppily planted by a smelly aunt.
https://worldwideinterweb.com/prince-harry-meghan-markle-public-kiss/
Excellent post Ariel. Perhaps the celebrity wedding was to catch her and Jessica in the act of allegedly embezzling money. That very ill fitting wedding dress couldn’t have cost as much as they said nor the halter dress for the reception.
It looks like he’s only a husband on paper. Actually he’s not even that according to her coat of arms. The chain’s missing. Why Charles would just pay for her expensive wardrobe whilst Waity has to economize makes no sense and people should be asking why he’s doing and explain as this is the president she’s set; ever engagement she’ll wear ultra expensive clothes.

How can any of us state categorically that she is not am embezzler.  Her fashion sense is called into question with the Blind article, allegedly the frocks etc given to her by people she knows, she wears it, whether it fits properly or not, then charges it up to chucky at its full price and splits the proceeds.  It would account for her lack of fashion sense.

Her fashion sense is pretty dire most of the time, all those outfits, some too tight, some too lose, the shoes too big, they always crease badly.  If she can scam money for free clothing (if correct) then she can do a lot of other unsavoury things. Who knows how she obtained her fashion clothing in the US.  We are aware that she is deceitful and a liar, so why not with her fake clothing bill, when all the time it was free - if the Blind item is correct.

She has worn some very unattractive, weird clothes, and even the wedding dress did not fit well.  How she walks in her shoes I have no idea, they are far too big.

IMO her fashion sense appears to be non-existent, and makes it even worse if she is doing what has been alleged.

This sort of thing has been going on since time immemorial borrowing dresses and all that. The rich and famous have attorneys and accountants to watch to see if they are pushing the envelope. Sometimes they get around this sort of thing via "charitable contributions" of the fashions.

Charles is a notorious cheapskate when it comes to paying for other's. Unless he was hypnotized no way would he pony up $$$ for expensive clothing for a daughter in law.

Sooner or later embezzlers get caught but now she uses the wall to wall lawyers of the RF who make sure there is no embezzling.

They are married. She has the HRH. And the Archbishop said he was marrying them and would not perform a "fake" wedding unless he wants to be de-frocked IMO. More "informal" weddings are just as legal as had been mentioned somewhere on another thread.

As a royal she is entitled to the legal team they use. As much as Sophie did and Jack will.

I doubt there will be a need to recoup the costs of the wedding. Christening costs will be next on the agenda and IMO will create more drama with more 'input" from the Markles.

I think the royal detectives went over all the "truths" with a fine tooth comb.

is the Meghan Markle Effect on Fashion Overrated?

How powerful is the “Meghan effect?"

The term was used to describe the commercial clout wielded by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (nee Meghan Markle) in the lead-up to her May 2018 wedding to Prince Harry. The fashion industry thought it had found a savior, with economists estimating Duchess Meghan could pump as much as $210 million into the British economy alone, as fans flocked to copy everything she wore. A camel-colored wool coat by Canada's Sentaler; a Scotland-made Strathberry bag; and Ralph and Russo couture were just a few of the styles said to have crashed websites, sold out or experienced significantly increased retail sales spikes thanks to her golden touch.

But the “Meghan effect" seems to have encountered a bit of a glitch.

Post by: HRHOlya on August 01, 2018, 11:37:16 pm
^ Exactly.

I read the article, and I have some thoughts:

The "explanation" that Murky's fashion choices have been less than stellar because of the "conservative dress code" and Liz's likes & dislikes is pure bs. So what, you have to dress like a tart in order to sell? And then the argument that the same happened to Waity, even though Waity did dress like a tart and flashed everyone for years!!! Why do people keep making up excuses out of their a*ses?? Why not say it like it is?
And yeah, Murky now has to wear tights, but no one forced her in the stark white "nurse" tights she wore that one time.
One good point is though that Murky's items have so far all been overpriced and therefore aren't available to the regular peasant woman. Other good points: all stuff not available yet either. And all ill-fitting. Drab colours, esp for L's christening. High heels all the time, even on grass at Wimbledon. Lack of British labels.
Also notes that slug lipped Jess Mulroney is Murky's "stylist".

Also bs that Waity managed better. As said Waity kept on flashing, also still wears ill-fitting stuff and her weightloss was apparent even to Stevie Wonder, Waity couldn't hide her skeletal frame at all.
One thing the article is right about is that Waity from day 1 to now managed to mix high end with high street (though def wearing more high end now).

Is this the secret to Meghan's glow? Duchess is a convert to a £42 organic 'sleep oil' her sister-in-law Kate keeps on her bedside table
She's has the difficult task of settling into life as a working royal and the burden of family drama, but throughout it all Meghan has remained fresh-faced and glowing - thanks to a reccommendation from the Duchess of Cambridge.

It's previously been reported that mother-of-three Kate, 36, is a fan of the £42 Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir which she keeps on her bedside table at Kensington Palace.

And now palace sources say Meghan is now a convert after Kate passed on her tip for glowing skin to her new sister-in-law the Duchess of Sussex, 36.

Containing 98 per cent organic oils, it's said to boost skin renewal while you sleep and can also be worn under makeup during the day for an added glow. 

The natural formula is bound to go down will health-conscious Meghan, who also likes to keep her skin looking dewy and natural so she was wear minimal foundation.

And it's no surprise Kate has shared her secret with the new Duchess of Sussex after making an effort to take her under her wing in recent month.

Kate, Meghan and Amal lead the style set on Tatler's star-studded best dressed list - while Prince George gets the nod for his take on 'Christopher Robin chic'
The Duchess of Cambridge is lauded for re-wearing her looks and for mixing designer labels with high street heroes.
Many of Meghan's outfits have sold out within minutes of her being photographed, as women clamour to emulate her chic style.
The publication said of the Duchess: 'Prince Harry's Californian bride blew us away with her Givenchy wedding dress and has redefined modern royal style with every subsequent appearance.'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6016367/Tatlers-best-dressed-list-2018-revealed.html
She only wears high end designer’s clothes so surely this publication’s being sarcastic. Her clothes don’t fit and shows off more than is polite because she’s either wearing no bra or wears one that’s too small.

^^This kind of shilling makes me angry.  This stuff does not work and I'd hardly call either of them "fresh faced".

My dermatologist, one of the best in the biz gets frustrated and advises only:  stay out of sun or use sun block (anything over 20spf, I believe, is ad hype, drink water, avoid alcohol, for dry skin CeraVe or Neutrogena cream (never lotion), and the only things that work long-term for wrinkles are plastic surgery, Retin-A, or Botox/fillers. 

Obviously, proper sleep, exercise and good nutrition minus goofy diet fads.

Yeah the cosmetics industry is a huge scam (there are things that work, but you really have to do research and esp not fall for marketing bs!), I especially love reading accounts from people who work there or used to.

I also only take dermatologists' advice seriously, forget "skincare gurus"!

Advertizing with Kate though.... Meg has better skin than K I think, but yeah nothing to write home about either...

^^Yooper, spot on (no pun intended), unless a cream or serum reaches the dermal layer it’s basically useless for issues they advertise them for.  The beauty industry is a huge lie.   I love CereVe night cream!

However, I do love my Clarisonic and swear it exfoliates the skin better than anything. Maybe it’s just a feeling, but my dermatologist recommends them for men and women.

Waity can keep her oil lol and nothing will help Meggles unless she has laser.

It’s a shame that teenagers are subjected to this kind of marketing because it’s all lies. In this case, neither one of these women should be used to push any type of makeup or skincare because they both look like they’re partying and scheming ways have done a nasty number on their skin.
Meghan’s reduces and seems happy to be a useless clothing rack who clings onto Harry for photo ops and to steady herself as she’s always on high heels.

You’re right, dark navy but the shoes are suede, maybe black, yes?

And, yes, that blocked color skirt doesn’t even qualify for “mixed media”.  It’s a right mess.  The whole thing.

Stella McCartney reveals how she struck up a friendship with Meghan after being commissioned to design her wedding reception gown – and says the Duchess is 'not a difficult client to make look beautiful'
The Brit designer, who was awarded an OBE for her sustainable fashion label, says the pair have become good friends since Meghan began wearing her clothes following her engagement to Prince Harry. 
Speaking to fashion bible Elle magazine, which next month focuses on sustainability, she said: ‘I think Meghan chose me for reasons other than just a beautiful dress – plenty of people can do that. She is not a difficult client to make look beautiful.
‘Amal called me and asked me to do it, as did Oprah. I look at that Amal dress, and it is made of sustainable viscose that took us three years to develop.'
She also says she believes that Meghan - along with her guests Amal Clooney and Oprah Winfrey - chose her designs because she is a strong feminist and environmental campaigner.
McCartney, 46, added: ‘And I think, obviously I am a British designer, but I think being a woman and being a women’s woman played a part. They are all women’s women. It’s a big deal.’
The designer, a lifelong vegetarian and animal rights campaigner, says she bonded with Meghan from the moment they met over their shared interest in environmental issues and the pair have since become friends.
She designed the £1,350 black coat that Meghan wore to Wales in January; the £1,512 dress she wore to the Royal Albert Hall in April and the £483 silk blouse she wore for that month’s Anzac Day service.
‘[Meghan] approached me and we worked on other things,’ says Stella.
The British designer, who opened a new flagship shop in London this summer, also revealed how she tries to balance a focus on fair trade with being cost-efficient.
Although her parents Sir Paul and Linda McCartney have always supported her – they were in the front row of her graduate fashion show in 1995 – they did not pay her pocket money.
‘Look I get it,’ she told Elle. ‘I really get it. I have struggled with the price point of my product from day one. I still do.
Speaking to the BBC, McCartney explained she was determined to get it right because the wedding reception would be Meghan's final appearance before taking on her 'very austere, very serious' royal role as the Duchess of Sussex.
The show-stopping white halterneck gown was 'the last moment' that Meghan, 36, could reflect 'the human within her', McCartney added. 
While the neckline was modest, the backless number allowed Meghan to show off her toned shoulders and back, while the figure-hugging gown featured a dramatic fluted skirt.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6030737/Stella-McCartney-reveals-won-commission-Meghans-wedding-dress.html
The wedding was purely a pr coup for Stella and every other celebrity that attended.
I love that even she said her clothes are dear and that hervand Meghan became friends after she started wearing her clothes.

^Totally agree.  They follow where the think the money might be. You don´t hear much about her "creations" these days, so maybe she is hoping to garner some pr for her company  -  bit dumb if that is the case as people tend to not want anything the same as trailer trash murky has worn.  Nothing ever looks as though it fits properly, nothing looks good on her, in fact she looks wrong in every way, full stop. Never a fan of the Stella McCartney range anyway, and she tends to forget the younger element are coming in now, and they want want her "fashions".  Maybe she forgets she is "getting old and yesterday news".

It’s all about getting pr by latching onto what’s in the news. Right now, the celebrity pr wedding was news all over the world, so of course Stella and the other celebrities showed up for it and has used that as part of their pr campaign. There’s an article in WWD how Stella’s social media accounts garnered a lot of interest because of the wedding and their was a massive buz around her and her new store. It’s all about getting worldwide press attention to themselves and their brand. No one could give to f’s about this strumpet as she’s just now a tool to use for their own gain. I guess she’s getting used like she used people.
Meghan’s make-up artist shares footage of the playful royal racing to eat raspberries as he wishes her a happy 37th birthday on Instagram
The Duchess' former makeup artist Daniel Martin shared a throwback video, believed to have been taken in 2016, of his pal to mark the occasion over the weekend.
Captioning the video, which has received over 30,000 views, Daniel wrote: 'Happiest of birthdays my friend!!'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6030765/Meghans-make-artist-shares-footage-playful-royal-racing-eat-raspberries.html
Really, 30,000 views? How many like? This is what’s going now, getting attention to up their social media in order to get more business.
She's done it again! Meghan's £400 Club Monaco dress sells out just HOURS after she wore it at Harry's friend's wedding
The Duchess of Sussex sparked a shopping frenzy when she was spotted in a £400 ($328) dress at the wedding of Prince Harry's friend over the weekend.
Within hours of the appearance, the dress was completely sold out online and the product page is no longer available to view.
Meghan paired the pleated Shoanah Dress with a low-key black fascinator from royal milliner Philip Treacy.
She finished the ensemble with an elegant pair of £547 Aquazzura Deneuve 105 pumps, which featured pretty bow detailing on the heel.
The outfit was a far cry from the loose, flowing £4,220 ($5,490) dress by Oscar de la Renta that she wore to the wedding of Princess Diana's niece earlier this summer.
It is not the first time Meghan has been seen in a piece by Club Monaco. The royal also opted for the brand when she joined the Royal Family for the Christmas Day church service in Sandringham last year.
The $298 (£220) red velvet Tay dress proved similarly popular with shoppers and flew off the shelves.
Much like her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan has the power to boost a brand's fortunes and her looks often sell out within hours.
The Ralph Lauren outfit she wore to Wimbledon was soon snapped up and the dress, straw hat and shoes she wore to a polo match last month enjoyed the same popularity.
And proving that she is well on her way to becoming the nation's new style queen, a £425 crossbody bag she wore in Edinburgh earlier this year also sold out in record time.

The Dirt On How Celebrities Get Free Clothes
You’re probably familiar with the idea of celebrities borrowing or being gifted clothes, but unless you’re part of the fashion industry, you might not know much more than that. Of course Jennifer Lawrence is going to wear Dior to the Oscars; she is the face of the brand. But she doesn’t get to keep the haute couture gown after all the trophies are handed out. However, what celebrities wear on a day-to-day basis (jeans, dresses, handbags) is usually gifted to them by a brand through public relations agencies. This is a practice called “celebrity seeding.” Think of it like product placement you see in movies and TV shows, just on a Kardashian’s (or whoever’s) body. A successful seeding can be measured by whether or not the “endorsed” product takes off, like Mara Hoffman bathing suits. So before you drop $200 on a bikini, you should know celebrities didn’t actually buy one because they liked it. More often than not, celebrity seeding is what’s really driving trends.
Which Celebs Make The Cut
Seeding begins when a brand and/or PR agency identifies certain factors they are looking for when dressing a celebrity: their image, who is being photographed often, who has a specific style that will fit the brand and, most importantly, who has an audience. One PR exec says, “If given the choice to gift Lindsay Lohan or Selena Gomez, one might be more inclined to choose Selena. She has a great image, is photographed often and is known for her great style.” They don’t necessarily need a big project coming out, as long as the desired criteria is met. Kenneth Loo, “the one in charge” (his words, not ours) at creative marketing firm Kenwerks adds, “I usually recommend clients to steer clear of controversy, reality stars and any celebrities that attract bad press.” However, all of these rules can go out the window if a brand presents a “wish list” of celebrities to dress based on personal opinions.
What They Get To Keep & What Goes Back
Once a finalized list of gifts is created, (roughly 20 pieces per month for smaller brands, 60 per month for bigger ones), packages are prepared with notes and informational materials. Kenneth says, “One of the biggest mistakes that companies do is just dumping product in a box and sending to celebrities.” His agency always follows up on their gifts whenever applicable.
Sometimes, celebrities do not always wear what they are sent for various reasons. They might not be allowed to accept gifts per their job (like TV hosts) or from existing contracts with different brands. Other times they might just straight up not like the clothes and will never wear them. So in these situations, it is not unlikely for a celebrity to send back the free clothes they receive. One PR exec says they see returned pieces as feedback. It allows an agency to better gauge what styles a certain person may or may not want to wear in the future.
So, Where Does A Stylist Fit In?
A stylist’s job is to make sure their client looks good for anything, whether it’s an appearance on The Tonight Show or grabbing a cup of coffee. They also work with celebrities to define an individual style. This begins by determining what type of appearance the celebrity wants to go for and then a wardrobe makeover happens. From then on, the stylist goes shopping and puts together outfits for their client based on the defined style.
Ilaria Urbinati is a celebrity stylist who has worked with Nina Dobrev, Bradley Cooper, Elle Fanning, Ryan Reynolds and Emmy Rossum. She says the most important thing about decidine who to work with is that they have to trust her as a stylist. “Dressing someone is a collaborative process, and I want my client to feel comfortable and have fun. If they have a movie or an album coming out, then that presents more opportunities for me to work with them, but it’s not a deal breaker by any means.”

Her work begins when a client needs something to wear. Ilaria says, “I love working with my client as a team and I strive to dress them in ways that bring out their unique style and individual personality; so I’ll work with my client before reaching out to any specific designer showrooms or PR agencies, and they’ll usually pick a couple of looks from different brands.” Once Ilaria knows what look she wants to create, she works directly with the fashion house or brand’s PR rep to secure those specific pieces. She has also had designers contact her directly if they want one of her clients to wear their designs. Once she receives everything, Ilaria and her client team up to finalize the whole look, picking everything from the dress down to the shoes, jewelry and clutch.
Why Everyone’s Wearing Marant

It’s no surprise Isabel Marant is one of the designers that celebrities request the most. After her wedge sneakers were seeded throughout Hollywood, the shoe style completely blew up and was knocked off by tons of other brands. But how did you know that Beyoncé, Miranda Kerr and Kate Bosworth were wearing these kicks? That would be from us, the editors who write about what celebrities wear.

Our inboxes fill up hourly with emails from PR companies about what a celebrity wore the night before, or how Jessica Alba has been spotted in this under-$100 army jacket multiple times. There’s no way we would be able to identify the item without these pitches from PR reps. The stories we cover on celebrities carrying the same handbag or wearing the same dress demonstrates how all parts of the seeding process come together. From the brand/PR companies sending the items, to stylists dressing their clients and PR reps emailing us to write about how many stars are wearing a specific item.

Ilaria also filled us in on the other “young cool” designers in demand now:  Antonio Berardi, Peter Pilotto, Mary Katrantzou, Carven and Giambattista Valli. Then there’s the usual suspects like, Chanel, Prada, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Jason Wu. She also mentions that on the beauty side, color contact lenses are definitely becoming a trend right now. She styles The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev with AIR OPTIX COLORS all the time, including this weekend’s Teen Choice Awards where the lenses would compliment her dress.
How Trends Really Get Started
You saw your favorite celebrity in rag & bone’s Newbury booties so you had to have ’em. But now that you know Sienna Miller, Rachel Bilson, Katie Holmes and Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t actually go to the store and buy these shoes, do you still want a pair?
What about this year’s matching set trend? Would it have taken off if Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, Alessandra Ambrosio and Khloe Kardashian all weren’t photographed wearing it? Probably not. It’s pretty difficult to pull off the two piece look, but seeing someone you look up to wearing it, like a celebrity, will make you more inclined to buy it. Which is exactly what PR companies are trying to make happen by seeding the trend.
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.shefinds.com/revealed-how-celebrities-get-free-clothes/amp/
There was a comment in the DM about her getting clothes for free from Jessica then charging full price to Charles.
This is what she and Jessica have been doing and why she’s only wearing top their designers; for her station, as they believe a duchess would dress. They’re so off the mark.

Meghan Markle wears 22-karat gold sunglasses worth $750
Meghan Markle‘s future is so bright, she has to wear shades — very expensive, gold-plated shades.

While celebrating her birthday at a friend’s wedding on Saturday, the Duchess of Sussex accessorized her Club Monaco dress (and brushed off a mini wardrobe malfunction) in a pair of Linda Farrow sunglasses made from 18-22 carat gold-plated Japanese titanium.

The price for Markle’s sold-out, statement-making sunnies? A cool $750.

Still, in news sure to relieve Prince Charles (who picks up the tab for Markle’s royal wardrobe), the Duchess’ pair is a relative steal compared to the white-gold version of the same Linda Farrow style. Those feature platinum lenses and cost $1,215.

I think this article is to try and justify how she's able to wear expensive clothes and accessories. There's also a section regarding what the royal family can accept as gifts and what they do with those that they can't accept.
https://skippyisheretostay.tumblr.com/post/176716339498/this-is-great-it-looks-like-her-policies-on-what
So dub on her part that as an american citizen, she'll have to pay taxes on the value of the gifts. So her wardrobe is well over a million dollars, so her tax bill will be very high. I see her going bankrupt just like the rest of her family.  :cookie: Ctually, that blind looks like t's true since her attire doesn't fit her body and she's left tags on her bags. So she merchandizes some of the clothes and gets others free that she charges full price to Charles. Easy to prove it's that's true and she'll get charged with embezzlement.

^appearance fee; that makes sense since this is playing out like a reality show where she’s the dodgy duchess. She had to pay her pr crew still so she mightn’t have the money to pay back the IRS. Besides, if she’s charging Charles the full amount of the clothes and accessories, then that’s a crime.
The Meghan effect strikes again! Dress by duchess' go-to brand revealed as one of the TEN most sought-after fashion items (and controversial platform Crocs also make the list)
Meghan, 36, raised the profile of UK-based Goat after she chose the brand for her first official appearance following her wedding to Prince Harry, 33, in May this year.
Data released this week from global fashion search engine Lyst reveals a dress by Goat was among the 10 fashion pieces most searched for online over the last three months.
Lyst analysts credit the Duchess of Sussex with drawing shoppers to the brand, noting: 'Contemporary line Goat has benefitted from the Meghan effect, its occasion dresses proving to be a popular choice for summer shoppers.'
The £700 Goat Whitney dress in blue was the ninth most sought-after item, according to data.
The Lyst Index provides quarterly rankings of fashion's hottest brands and products.
Analysts track the behaviour of more than 5 million shoppers searching, browsing and buying fashion across 12,000 designers and stores online each month.
The formula takes into account global Google and Lyst search data, engagement statistics, conversion rates and sales worldwide over a three-month period.
The Meghan effect is again apparent in the rise of Givenchy, which was catapulted into the top five after the Duchess chose a Helen Waight Keller creation for her big day.

No one should have to pay taxes for this couple luxurious life. They don't represent the actual world full of inequality. Two healthy and wealthy young persons with no real job and living on taxpayers is not acceptable. Tourism and pomp and circumstance revenues are not pertinent arguments.

MM was on this same track with heavily filtered IG post and praisng up her cool, lavish lifestyle when not film Suits. It's all lies to get people to follow them and get money and merchandise via their sponsors. Meanwhile, the kids and vunerable people lap p the lies and go out an buy what these so called influensers are peddling.

Beauty brand behind Meghan's favourite eyelash-boosting serum releases a hair thickening range – after cult product sold five MILLION units
The makers of a cult lash-boosting product loved by the Duchess of Sussex has branched into hair thickening products for the first time.
Meghan has never indicated that she suffers from thinning hair but her former stylist Lydia F. Sellers recently revealed the royal uses volumising spray religiously.
She also gets regular Brazilian-style blow-dries, a semi-permanent straightening treatment that uses a mix of keratin and formaldehyde to smoothe tresses and has been linked to hair loss.

Channelling Meghan! Jennifer Garner wears the SAME £1,350 Roland Mouret dress to receive her Hollywood star as the Duchess wore the day before her wedding to Prince Harry
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and Jennifer Garner has signalled her admiration for Meghan Markle's wardrobe in the clearest terms - by wearing an identical dress.
The dress features Roland Mouret's signature draped skirt and is made of wool crepe. While Meghan opted for dove grey stillettos, Garner finished the look with a pair of navy velour heels with a delicate strap.
Ahead of the royal wedding, Garner posted a photo from her film 13 Going on 30 with co-star Mark Ruffalo, along with the caption: 'Harry and Meghan, if you’re looking for stand-ins @markruffalo and I are just hangin’ around'.  :tehe:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6081945/Jennifer-Garner-wears-Meghan-Markle-dress-collect-Hollywood-star.html#comments-6081945
Jennifer did the dress justice at she had on the correct undergarment and the dress fitted her frame. Jennifer’s an award winning actress and a class act in her profession unlike Meghan, who cheapens everything she’s attached to. She fashion road kill, not fashion icon brands would fall over themselves to associate with her. She’s now getting negative press with her family drama and her shady nature.

Jennifer looks lovely and better in the dress in my opinion. She has chosen to wear her hair in a way that shows the detail of the dress across the neckline, this detail was lost on Meghan who needs a lesson in how to dress and style her hair to suit her figure!

Garner was a somebody while Meghan was still planning her crawl to fame vis a vis using men like Harry. Please stop insulting her.

I agree, Jennifer wore it better. You can see the neckline properly and I think it's also because Jennifer isn't stick thin and therefore has a nicer figure, which fills out the dress better, also her ankles & legs don't look like sticks about to break any moment...

She seems to have wanted to go for the "I'm so much edgier and hip than anyone else in this family" route but it failed because she just looks cheap. 

There's a reason you can tell those who have been raised to understand quality dressing or reared to know what fabrics, tailoring are important.  It's in the details and she really missed the mark here.  You can't buy good taste was never more true than with her.  And when is she going to wear the same thing twice? 

She just screams New Money.

Meghan's make-up artist Daniel Martin reveals his secret technique to ensure the Duchess' freckles stand out - as they're her 'favourite feature'
Daniel, who was responsible for Meghan's make-up on her wedding day, then uses a blending brush to even it out.
Speaking to E! News, Daniel explained: 'People with freckles tend to have a really balanced palette.
Daniel (pictured in an Instagram snap of himself at Cliveden House, where Meghan stayed the night before the wedding) explained how he ensures his client's favourite features stand out   :cookie:
Following royal wedding, Daniel shared a snap of himself at Cliveden House, where Meghan stayed the night before the wedding.
He recently also revealed how Prince Harry kept saying 'thank you' to him following the ceremony.
Daniel told InStyle: 'I know exactly what [Meghan] does and doesn’t like. After the ceremony Harry kept saying thank you. He was thanking me for making her look like herself.'
Explaining the inspiration behind Meghan's classic bridal look, he added: 'The last thing you want [is] to look at your wedding pictures and go, "Remember when highlighting was the rage?"
'At the end of the day, you want to look like your best self.'

Proof Jessica Mulroney chose THAT mini-dress for Meghan? Fashion guru’s star client Sophie Trudeau has been wearing pieces by the same designer for YEARS
She is reported to have picked Meghan's mini dress that set tongues wagging this week.
And now further proof has emerged that Jessica Mulroney continues to work as the Duchess of Sussex's unofficial stylist.
The fashion guru, a close friend of Meghan, has been working with Judith & Charles - the Canadian label behind her thigh-skimming tuxedo dress - for at least two years.
She dresses her other star client, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, in clothing from the brand for almost every public appearance.
Images from the designer's Instagram page show Canada's First Lady wearing Judith & Charles at a string of high-profile events and foreign trips with her husband, from Germany to China.
It suggests Mulroney, who is based in Toronto, enjoys a close working relationship with the brand, whose dresses cost upwards of €525 USD (£404).
It follows reports that Mulroney advised Meghan to wear her much-talked about racy black tuxedo dress from Judith & Charles to the theatre in London on Wednesday night.
Indeed, the label credited Mulroney with the outfit in a now-deleted Instagram comment, according to several reports.
Prince Harry's new wife is understood to have made a three-day visit to see the Mulroneys last week in Toronto, where she lived for several years while filming Suits, during which Jessica gave her fashion tips.
It wouldn't be the first time Jessica has personally picked out pieces for Meghan's royal wardrobe; last month the Duchess wore a sleeveless trench coat by the Canadian brand House of Nonie selected by Toronto-based Jessica.
The thrilled designer behind House of Nonie, Nina Kharey, publicly thanked Jessica on the brand's Instagram account, and called Meghan's outing in its $1,085 (£629) dress 'an amazing day for us'.
It suggests that rather than keeping a personal stylist on her staff like Kate - and despite the considerable distance between the two women since Meghan relocated to London - it is Jessica who has been entrusted with helping the Duchess to refine her royal look.
And unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, who often wears British designers, Meghan has consistently plumped for clothing for Canadian labels thanks to Mulroney's influence.
The TV stylist was reported to have 'quietly' flown into London ahead of Meghan and Harry's two-day trip to Ireland earlier this year, to help her plan what would become a much talked about - and very high-end - tour wardrobe.
Writer and royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted to say the TV stylist had also had a hand in the £1,300 vibrant yellow Brandon Maxwell dress Meghan wore to a Commonwealth reception at Marlborough House in London earlier this summer.
She is also believed to have picked out Meghan's olive green ensemble at Prince Louis' christening at St James's Palace, and the Dior LBD she wore to mark the centenary of the RAF.

She has no fashion sense in anything and frankly I am fed up with consorts getting the 'style icon' nimbus and basically looking low rent or dressing too revealingly. It takes a LOT of specialness to basically get it right a lot of the time and style icons don't just wear the established designers, they also being a refreshing new perspective. Diana didn't just wear contemporary pieces, she wore Edwardian chokers, flowing gowns with old fashioned designs, and was clearly truly her own person when it came to wearing clothes. She could have easily just worn the latest designs, but she wore what she knew suited her and what she liked.

Basically telling the queen, Harry etal, FU, I’ll do what I want when I want.   :-X
Meghan, the royal rebel (or how the Duchess of Sussex refuses to bow to the Queen’s VERY strict fashion rules)
The Duchess of Sussex, the face of a more modern Monarchy, is more flagrant :nervous:
The little black tuxedo mini dress the Duchess of Sussex wore to last week’s charity performance of the hit musical Hamilton would have barely raised an eyebrow in her former life as a successful Hollywood actress.
But the thigh-skimming outfit that showed off her impressively well-toned – and scandalously bare – legs was decidedly risque for her new starring role as a British Royal.
In fact, Meghan’s £459 dress by Canadian label Judith & Charles broke no fewer than four golden rules of the rigid dress code of the Royal Family.
There is, of course, no formal rule book, but the Queen has made it clear that there is an unwritten protocol which dictates what Royal women should wear – and when.
Such is the universal respect in which Her Majesty is held that even the most unconventional members of ‘The Firm’ have generally adhered to her fashion guidelines, which favour discretion over vulgarity and practicality over glamour.
Indeed, even the most rebellious of Royals, Princess Diana, dared not flout convention until after the breakdown of her marriage to Prince Charles: who can forget the strikingly sexy ‘revenge’ dress by Greek designer Christina Stambolian she pointedly wore to the Serpentine Gallery’s summer party on the night Prince Charles confessed his affair on television?
So perhaps it’s fitting that it has been left to Diana’s daughter-in-law Meghan, the face of a more modern Monarchy, to be more flagrant.
Not only did the Duchess appear with no flesh-coloured tights to cover her slender legs, but she also wore a daring pair of vertiginous heels.
Worse, the dress was – quite appallingly – black and – shock horror – cut above the knee.
So what are the Royal fashion rules that govern what the Royals can and can’t wear? And how is Meghan breaking them?
Rule No1: NO BARE LEGS
Rule No2: NO SKIRTS ABOVE THE KNEE
Rule No3: ...AND NO BLACK
Rule No4: ...OR TROUSER SUITS
Rule No5: NO SHOULDERS ON SHOW
When it comes to her feet, Meghan is toeing the Royal line. Two years ago, on her now defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, she posted a snap of her £20,000 shoe collection, including the £254 Sarah Flint tan leather pumps which she wore at last year’s Invictus Games.

Just WOW, as an American I am ashamed, embarrassed, humiliated & furious with this goofball! You come from humble beginnings & married into society, the first rule of thumb is you adhere to society's rules whether she likes them or not. Many on this thread say because she snubs protocol she's not liked by the masses, & who can blame you? I have nothing but the greatest admiration & respect for Her Majesty the Queen, and should I ever in my wildest dreams get to meet her, she will be given every respect & courtesy that she is entitled to including dressing appropriately & most importantly to give a proper curtsy. Megan is going to find herself on the outside, then she's going to start crying because she doesn't understand why nobody in the royal family likes her - Gee I wonder why! As soon as I read she was a feminist I knew the royal family was going to have problems because she is not going adhere to tradition or Royal protocol. She's not a Diana........... :cookie:

So no short dresses above the knee are the Queen's rules? Someone should send Kate the memo. Just a small selection below of Kate breaking this non-existent protocol while on engagements! As for no tights/stockings, the Queen's own granddaughters, Zara, Eugenie, Beatrice, break that rule quite often.

None of the new generation follow any rules anymore; they just do what they want and give the middle finger to everyone around them, even HM in how they behave. Meg got in because Harry thinks the rules and protocol are just one big joke and basically just gives two fingers to all and sundry. Look how he behaves in a church.

As for Fashion, Meg dresses in a minimalist style, looking like she belongs in LA, not a palace or cathedral. Her Givenchy dress was not British (a nice slap in the face to the British fashion industry) and she clearly doesn't want to even try to look feminine.

Her style is businesslike, trying to look serious in order to be taken seriously and it is clear that she doesn't realize that her role is ornamental and that is all. She has no need to project herself as serious since it is clear that she's never going to sit in on backdoor meetings that actually decide how things are going to go.

Trouser suits aren't against protocol and I'm not sure about the shoulder thing, but the rest, yeah Megsy isn't bothering at all.

The rest are known protocol rules re: dressing (at least widely assumed by watchers), but seems no one's following them...

There's also the argument that protocol only applies when representing Liz, which is engagements etc and Meg def overstepped the mark.

^ Meg & her BFF Jess M, think themselves as accomplished fashionistas and spring one disaster after the other (don't get me started on the Hamilton shambles and nauseating lovey-dovey act "my love(s)" :ick: ).

They're all professionals through & through.

As for her style, sorry but the Hamilton jacket that she misused as a dress can't come out of my mind. THIS is her real style and it's a ho style. Whether people are safe to point it out or not is irrelevant. All this goes to show the kind of man H is: common trash, taxpayer funded, who likes his trash so much that he marries it.

The outfit was ok and looked good on her as it covered he very thin legs and looked like it actually fit, however, it was wrong got the occasion as it seemed like she was an undertaker at a funeral home.
The queen’s not amused, but as she’s an American, she does what she wants.
Why Queen Elizabeth Isn’t a Fan of Meghan Markle’s Power Pantsuits
Meghan Markle stepped out on Tuesday in one of her go-to looks: a pantsuit. The Duchess of Sussex often wears pants for her official outings, but it doesn’t have the royal seal of approval.
The Queen, who never wears slacks, prefers women in the royal family to wear dressers or skirts — and it’s protocol that Meghan has trouble understanding.
Although she has quickly adapted to many of the minutiae of royal dos and don’ts, she “has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand, like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits, and is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way,” a source previously told PEOPLE.
“I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it,” the source added.
For the annual WellChild Awards on Tuesday, Meghan cut a chic figure in a fitted pantsuit by Altuzarra paired with a black blouse by Deitas.
Meghan wore wide-leg cream pants to attend her first Wimbledon match as a royal, while her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, opted for a dress. Meghan also wore a Givenchy pantsuit during her official tour of Ireland with Prince Harry earlier this summer.
Although she hasn’t completely left her love of a chic pantsuit behind, Meghan has adopted more royal-approved style choices since she officially became a duchess. During Prince Charles’ garden party celebration in May, the new royal opted for pantyhose instead of her usual bare legs. She also now carries smaller clutches instead of large handbags, and she has taken on the “duchess slant.”
And for all of her outings alongside the Queen, she makes sure to avoid wearing pants!

The queen looks fantastic in slacks.  :thumbsup: Slacks are best for the fall/winter weather anyway.

Now I'm watching to see if Murky is going to start applying her makeup like a clown with heavy, exotic eye makeup which makes her look like a loon because it isn't her style and if she goes for a look foreign to her like long, flowing gowns and pearls. Maybe she will try to wear PDs pearl jewellery? I think she will copycat PD, the other, etc....

No, she's worn suits and trousers on public engagements herself, not just in private, as can be seen in the pics I posted. Those are private & public occasions, from when she was younger right to old age.

So what’s the beef with Meghan wearing pant suits?  :dontknow: The comments about how she got into her present position should be more a a concern than her wearing power suits.  ???  
The demure Duchess! Meghan opts for a low-key look in a black trouser suit a week after flashing her legs in THAT mini dress
But tonight, the Duchess of Sussex showcased a much more demure look in a black trouser suit by Altuzarra, teamed with a satin blouse from edgy Swedish brand
She kept her look simple, teaming the smart ensemble with towering stilettos and carrying a small black clutch.
But it was in stark contrast to the £327 Judith and Charles tuxedo dress, which showed off her toned legs to the max.

I love that Murky has been wearing trousers a lot and carried proper handbags. Though some trousers were ridiculous (like the ones in Scotland sweeping the streets), but still: :thumbsup: for the trousers and handbags from me.

The pants were nice. That's all I've got that's good of it.

I don't think all black for an event with children is appropriate.
The camisole underneath didn't go with the outfit and looked ridiculous tucked in
I don't mind pantsuits but again, why all black? Why not get some trousers and jackets with color?
Much too much money spent on an outfit that's nothing special.

She has no respect for herself and it proves that she REFUSES to listen to good advice; dressing a certain way is how things are done and yet she refuses to at least try to make a sincere effort. She has no business dressing wrong in trying to get  it right like Diana did. For all her foibles, Diana did NOT disregard the serious conventions and adhered to the rules in the area of dress.

^ Sex toy in black is not the job she applied for. The job she applied for is a decent decorum in a millennia old institution. What she wears or doesn't wear in her off time is totally her business. What she wears as representative of UK or her husband's charities is entirely different matter. She's not 18 or 28. She should know the difference from right and wrong.

IMO her real style is the mini dresses. The paralegal in black is what her Suits influence is showing. Again, I like pantsuits. I like all black outfit. Just, visiting dying children in such outfuit is poor taste to say the least.

She looks ok.  To me, the color doesn’t suit the occasion and a cream or ivory camisole would have been a better touch.  I don’t like pantsuits for formal occasions myself as I prefer dresses and skirts, but her legs are hidden.  That’s a positive for a change.

Post by: YooperModerator on September 05, 2018, 05:25:53 pm
My issue with her fashion sense, or style, besides it being flat and repetitious is that she is not seeing how she appears as an opportunity to reflect the institution.  At some point, she's going to have to decide who and what she represents.  So far, she has the air of being an outsider, a person struggling with their role and, through her style and bearing, decidedly not a full-on rep of the BRF.

Some of this is understandable, being new, most of it is not considering her supposed worldliness, brilliance and understanding of "branding".

Meghan Markle scores first People's Choice Awards nomination in new Style Star of 2018 category
Meghan Markle scored her first People's Choice Awards nomination on Wednesday in the Style Star of 2018 category.
Markle also was nominated in the Choice Style Icon category at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards.
Markle also was honored for her fashion sense on Wednesday when People named her the Best Dressed Star of 2018.
The Los Angeles native was given the top honor by People in its annual list ahead of Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Amal Clooney and Kim Kardashian.
The 44th People's Choice Awards will be presented on November 11 from downtown Los Angeles and will air for the first time on the E! network after previously being broadcast on CBS.
The annual awards are voted on by fans in categories including movies, music, television and pop culture.
New categories this year include: the Bingeworthy Show of 2018, the Game Changer of 2018, the Revival Show of 2018 and the Style Star award.

Meghan’s makeup artist in privacy row: Daniel Martin's ‘candid’ shot of a stranger doing her brows on the subway sparks controversy – even though he was praising her ‘skills’
The Duchess of Sussex's makeup artist has come under fire after posting a candid shot of a stranger applying her makeup on the New York subway.
Daniel Martin, who did Meghan's makeup on her wedding day, shared the snap of the unsuspecting woman pencilling in her eyebrows as she rode the subway car with his 112k Instagram followers, saying he was 'entranced' by her skills.
The picture racked but almost 7,000 likes, but while some fans thanked Martin for championing women, others accused him of invading her privacy.
Martin, a brand ambassador for Dior, wrote: 'I have so much respect watching women on the subway do their makeup.
Martin hit back, pointing out that the woman had been in public and urging trolls not to 'shame him' on his Instagram page.
He wrote: 'If you have challenges with it, roll your eyes, curse my name to yourself and scroll on! You criticizing me publicly only makes your trollin a** worse!'

Agree; one, she is a royal duchess and shouldn't be this low and second, she hasn't accomplished anything other than poink and marry Prince Harry. She hasn't been a game changer and she certainly has not at all done anything to stand out. It's not the Nobel Prize, but it shouldn't include a nomination for Nut-Meg. If she shows up at this show and accepts the award, she will look bad as a duchess and possibly a joke as a former actress. Showing up at this event wearing some glitzy dress with Harry in tow will just make things worse for their (already overworked) PR team.

Given the date of the award she had better not turn up.

She has an engagement that day - at the Cenotaph in London if not at places in France.

The 11th November this year - the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI falls on a Sunday so Remembrance Sunday will actually be on the 11th November.

I haven't seen any announcements of what the various members of the BRF will be doing on the 11th itself but I would expect Harry to be at the Cenotaph and Meghan to be with Camilla and Kate on the balcony - unless they are representing the Queen at events in France of Belgium. I wouldn't be surprised if the two young couples aren't sent to France and/or Belgium for the various remembrance ceremonies that will be taking place there while Charles will lead the nation at the Cenotaph as he did last year with the Queen and Philip watching from the balcony.

I think Meg might try to make both appearances and I am certain that if she does go to accept the award, she will end up wearing full bling. For her, this is HUGE since at her VERY low level, she would have ended up being there for sure.

However, I can see her sending a letter or, even better, a heartfelt, gushy video thanking the minions during the event.

If People reallllly wanted to cash in even bigger on this ridiculous and undeserved award, they'd invite the Markle Clan to accept in her behalf.  That would be worth tuning in to see.

Meghan's new curves! Duchess uses a VERY clever styling trick to make her figure appear more voluptuous as she dons a blue pleated dress to attend a charity concert with Harry
She's blessed with an enviably slim figure, but the Duchess of Sussex has found a clever way to instantly look more voluptuous.
The stylish gown featured soft pleats and ruffles down the front, instantly adding more shape to Meghan's slim figure.
Celebrity stylist Lucas Armitage told Femail: 'Her figure is quite athletic, straight up and down. So pleats add curves and shape for a more feminine silhouette.'
It's a trick Meghan has used on several previous occasions, most recently wearing a Club Monaco dress with a pleated skirt for the wedding of Harry's pal Charlie van Straubenzee last month.

^^ Funny that you mention drag queens because they dress like women and walk like women. M on the other side needs someone to coach her on not walking like a man.

PEOPLE has named Meghan Markle the Best Dressed Star of 2018. This is because whenever she wears anything, the items sell. Which is what happens with Princess Kate’s wardrobe too. Is that enough though? Like is that where we’re setting the criteria for who gets to be called the Best Dressed?

PEOPLE’s rationale behind their selection is obvious: Royal Meghan is popular, hers was the wedding of the year, she’s American, she’s a Hollywood actress-turned-princess-duchess. I understand the business behind giving her title. But on style alone…does Royal Meghan have good style?

She can look great, for sure. In certain suits, that are well cut, definitely. But that tuxedo dress she wore to Hamilton last week is an example of how she can, regularly, run into fit problems. And also amateur hour detailing problems. Like at Wimbledon, remember Wimbledon? That blue and white striped shirt over trousers? The outfit was a good idea on the hanger. But on the body, especially that day, it was sh-tty execution: the shirt kept riding up, wouldn’t lie flat. Because the look she was going for was editorial, not practical.
 
One of the most disappointing dresses we’ve seen from her this year was what she wore to the Queen’s Garden Party right after she and Prince Harry got married. It was their first appearance after the wedding. It was that heinous off-white shift dress with the sheer sleeves that looked sloppy and cheap, with the chalky tights.

Meg was never a Hollywood actress and as for selling things out, the majority of her clothes are in fact largely not at all affordable and are originals, not to be replicated.

Post by: windsor2 on September 07, 2018, 02:54:51 am
To go back to PEOPLE’s choice though, and why this choice, what makes it even more interesting, is that the magazine, in the last couple of weeks, has broken a couple of Harry and Meghan exclusives. According to PEOPLE, their new dog is called Oz. They were the first, ahead of the British royal gossips, to get this news. We’re not yet sure if it’s true but that report made headlines around the world. They also claimed an exclusive, which I posted about yesterday, about what the Queen thinks of Meghan’s pantsuits. Two exclusives, followed by Meghan being Best Dressed on the cover…
Something to keep an eye on.

This Designer Debuted His New Collection on Meghan Markle Instead of at Fashion Week
If you need a sneak celebrity endorsement for one of your unreleased designs, you can't go wrong with Meghan Markle—and that's exactly what designer Jason Wu did on Thursday (September 6). The Duchess of Sussex wore a gorgeous cobalt blue sheath dress designed by Wu with matching heels and Prince Harry on her arm to the 100 Days to Peace charity gala on Thursday night. But this wasn't just any old Jason Wu dress: It was actually a design from his new spring 2019 collection, which he went on to debut at New York Fashion Week on Friday.
The designer revealed his ingenious sneak preview on Instagram Thursday night, keeping things simple with a photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the event. He pretty much let his design and PR savvy do all of the talking, captioning the post, "#meghanmarkle in #jasonwu #jasonwucollection #spring2019."
Wu's excellent marketing move was not lost on scholars of the "Meghan Markle Effect." Reporter Elizabeth Holmes posted an analysis of the post on her Instagram Story. "This is so choreographed!! I can't even!!" Holmes wrote in the caption, adding, "Once an influencer, always an influencer," and "Kudos to Jason for this get, this is a [very] big get."
"She's wearing Jason's latest collection Thursday night BEFORE it hits the runway on Friday at NYFW," Holmes clarified.
The mania for cobalt blue sheath dresses isn't the only trend we can thank Meghan Markle for this season. Over the past few months, she has singlehandedly sparked sales in off-the-shoulder blazers, bateau necklines, wrap coats, and even rare Welsh gold. We can't wait to have her dictate the rest of our entire fall (and winter and spring) wardrobe.

Proof of her merchandising! What were the terms of this deal? Makes the royal family complicit in her merchandising now as she’s still married to Harry and is still seen as a member of the royal family.  :cookie: Since this isn’t allowed by a member of the royal family, the press needs to inquire about this. To me, it’s proof that she coerced her way in and now’s caught in a trap of her own making because a true royal member couldn’t and wouldn’t do this.

Why would Meghan be doing deals with Jason Wu and actively merchandising? All this article shows is that Jason has publicised a client wearing his clothing. Meghan is a woman who is now world famous, and has, according to tabloids (for what they're worth) caused the selling out of a lot of different items of clothing.

His collection is coming out too on the back of Meghan being named on the best seller list of VF and 'best dressed' in People mag. Of course Wu is going to play up the connection and the fact that the Duchess of Suffolk wore one of the designs from his new collection for all its worth. That's only natural. She's gained him lots of publicity on the eve of his new fashion collection. He couldn't have asked for anything better. However that is not evidence that Meghan is in league with him in some kind of business deal.

If I recall, she was wearing clothes that were clearly off season and not available for public consumption yet.  If that is true, then the items were either gifted them to her or sold them ahead of release, which, frankly is merchandising.

^^^ She's in it for the money and for personal gain. Anything that she can do to squeeze more money out of her past expiration date 15 min of fame - she will do it. She's merching. Her mom is merching.

^ I'll tell you how I think she feels. Like Serena Williams on her last match. Mind you, now Serena is married to a russian oligarch and has a baby with him and on top of that started a whining campaign that she won't be able to have another baby if she  wants to continue winning on the court ... then she started losing anyway.

Today she lashed onto the judge for calling her on her cheating, then broke her racket, yelled self-entitled some more and then cried for the minions ... She's lost it because she felt so entitled that she couldn't believe that she must actually play to win.

Same will happen with Megan - lots of entitlement, lots of anger possibly lashing out (not yet in public) and a lot of blaming if things don't go out her way.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 09, 2018, 06:42:24 am
I don't think Meg understands just how secure she is in fact; there is no need for merching, as long as she uses her brain and doesn't mess up too bad, I am certain that she'll keep her marriage. A handful of children adn they would have to have a GOOD reason to get rid of her.

As for Serena Williams, she has got to STOP this temperamental BS and train more and actually play, don't just whack the ball and wear outlandish outfits all the time.

I do believe that Meg will start losing it, mainly when she is forced to take a step aside and have the limelight shine on someone else. She hasn't yet gotten it into her head that the engagements are not supposed to be about her and she shouldn't be dressing to get attention, but to fit in with others around her.

I give it a handful of years and then someone new will come along, outshine her, and then the catfights will begin.

Post by: Ariel on September 09, 2018, 01:37:12 pm
As soon as Kate decides to come back from maternity the second fiddle reality will start showing up because Kate used to be liked by the press.

^ I watched the press con after the match and Serena couldn't see that her anger outburst and entitled behavior were what got her into that mess not the umpire's alleged unfairness (her coach admitted to giving her pointers and his excuse was: other coaches do it too) or sexist behavior (both players were women  one played well  the other one was emotionally unstable and a sore loser) . Osaka was better, meaning more consistent, on the court while Serena couldn't believe that she was losing and lost it  just lost it.

I can totally see Megan go off the rails like that too and blaming others for her not being emotionally stable, especially if people start talking about her past.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on September 09, 2018, 03:40:02 pm
Kate I think has worn out her welcome with  some with her work avoidance. There is some cynicism out there about the "maternity leave" (from what?). Kate's absences from work have been going on since before the babies.  Kate even decide she wants another child and another long absence will happen (though she may have to talk WIlliam into it). I don't know if Meghan will get the same leeway --long maternity leaves and all that.

As for SErena, I don't think Meghan will replicate that. She is not a tennis player who can fall apart when things don't go her way. The press is writing very unflattering articles about how the winner was booed and felt she had to apologize for winning the match. Osaka probably would have won anyway.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 09, 2018, 03:58:22 pm
I do think Meg will outwardly handle being upstaged, but she will not handle it well behind closed doors. As a 'fashionista,' she wants to be top of the line. As for Kate losing goodwill, people are taking it for granted that she doesn't want to work and only shows up to serious things to be able to go to Wimbledon and mooch around. I also think that Meg is going to continue to dress as high level as possible and I do believe she will continue to break the bank.

This really isn't true. Being Welsh myself, I can tell you there is hardly any gold left in the Welsh goldmine. In fact the QUEEN was given a nugget from which all royal brides have been given enough to have a ring made. When it's gone, it's gone.

Why has Meghan shunned British fashion? Royal favours Canadian brands loved by her friend Jessica Mulroney - while taking her time to find the 'right UK labels to champion'
Her royal wardrobe regularly sparks a shopping frenzy, but British designers hoping to cash in on the popularity of the Duchess of Sussex may have been left a little disappointed thanks to her love of Canadian labels.
On her most recent outing to the 100 Days to Peace concert at Westminster Central Hall for instance, the royal opted for a blue pleated dress by Taiwanese designer Jason Wu who grew up in Canada, teamed with shoes by Italian brand Aquazzura and a Dior clutch.
She's also stepped out Canadian labels closely linked to her best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney, such as House of Nonie and Judith & Charles, and these brands that were hitherto unknown to the British public are naturally thrilled by the publicity boost.
The downside is that UK labels are being left out in the cold, however celebrity stylist and PR Rochelle White told Femail that rather than it being a deliberate snub, Meghan is simply taking her time to develop her royal style
'I don’t believe that Meghan is making a mistake. I see it as, she is trying to find her feet with British Brands that suit her style,' she explained.
'At the moment she is sticking with the brands that she knows and loves. She is taking her time to find the right brands to champion.
'As much as Meghan is a part of the royal family, I feel that she is still trying to keep some her and her personal style.
'She is conscious that the US and UK as well as the rest of the world, have their eyes on her. I don’t think she wants to be seen, as forgetting her roots or fashion style.'
And Meghan has certainly made an effort to appeal to those without a royal budget by wearing the occasional item from M&S, including a £45 jumper.
'I love the fact that she has been seen in M&S and other British brands. I think she has found the odd pieces that suit her.
'It’s like when you mix high street and high end fashion, she is mixing British brands with her trusted Canadian brands.'
Meghan's strongest allegiance to British designer is her association with Givenchy, who designed her wedding dress and several outfits for official royal engagements.
However, although its creative director Clare Waight Keller is British, it is very firmly a French design house with headquarters in Paris.
When she does deviate from her Candian favourites, it's more common to see her in a European or US designer brand than a British one - having sported pieces by Dior, Altuzarra and Prada on royal engagements.
When they do get a look in, it's usually in the form of a bag rather than the centrepiece of an outfit such as a dress or a coat.
However, Rochelle hopes we will see Meghan integrating more British brands in her wardrobe as time goes on.  
'I would love to see Meghan wearing more Missoma Jewellery, rocking Charlotte Elizabeth bags and in brands like Stella McCartney, Lulu Guinness and maybe even Victoria Beckham,' she said.
'I think these brands would suit her style and the items she tends to pick to wear.'

I agree. I do think it's time for the fairytale BS to be retired and put a stop to; no more deluding people that someone is going to come along and take them away from life into a fantasy world where there are no more problems.

That is why I never bought the idea that princes would marry a woman who has neither money or title; William wouldn't have let Kate hold on for so long if Kate's family hadn't been footing her bills and I do believe that William was testing that family by making her family foot his bills as well. As for Harry, Harry is the same; he was never going to reach outside of his own set and wasn't going to basically end up being able to get someone who wasn't willing to give up a huge part of her life. He needed someone who was going to be willing to give up a career, her known life, and at the age he is at, much of what the woman in question has always known. Meg gave it all up, despite not having all that much to give up and I wouldn't think now is really the time to discuss Meg's Soho House activities.

I think Harry has done as well as anyone could expect, given how he's lived his life.

I think Meg gets all she does is because the palace was desperate to marry him off to get some good PR. Didn't quite work out how the palace though it would, how the palace tried to make it, but now Harry is married and I believe that for all the drama that the Markle family is dishing out, that this is the best Harry could do. Meg is someone who was in the right place in the right time and I do believe that she's getting the goodies for putting up with Harry's idiocy.

Meg has more than she ever could have dreamed and I think she's done well. This is what she went gunning for.

Her Soho House activities and other murky things she's done in the past as well as the pr games she continues to play now should be discussed at all times simply because this low level woman's representing his family and the UK and is being brought around young people as someone to look up to. She's a vapid celebrity and it's quite sad that a man who has all that Harry has thinks that this is the best he can do. He claims to be a leader but's with someone who makes hm look like a complete jke and a loser as she's presented as the strong one and he's the one that relies on Meghan to take charge in the relationship. What lessons can he expect to teach or help the younger generation achieve when he's with a woman like Meghan? It's sick and I'd rather he step down and live with his trolop elsewhere if this isn't a distraction and an operation of some sort such as giving content to the ITV documentary about the queen and the commonwealth and the modernization of the monarchy that people think is needed today. It needed tweeking but nt cheaponed down to the level of relity celebrity like Meghan brings and Harry and the rest of the royal family allows.

The women making a fortune out of Meghan's every move
From the second the Duchess of Sussex steps out of her front door, these women go into overdrive. What started as the hobby of two stay-at-home mums has rapidly become THE global authority on all things Meghan – even Vogue turns to them for intel on her latest headline-grabbing outfit. Their hit website Meghan’s Mirror is making them a fortune, yet they live thousands of miles apart and have never met. We speak to them about their astonishing rise
Although the subject matter might seem soft, Amanda and Christine have serious business nous. They’ve gone from royal-family admirers to establishing themselves and their site as the authorities on Meghan Markle’s style – creating a booming business in the process.
Amanda, 31, started her first blog, the hugely popular What Would Kate Do? (WWKD?) in 2012 while on maternity leave from her job in finance, mainly out of boredom but partly as a way to deal with ‘the fog that descends when you have a small baby’. In the Duchess of Cambridge she found an emotional inspiration: ‘I thought, what would Kate do in my situation? Well, she’d get dressed, and get out and do something.’
‘Right away with WWKD? we knew we’d found a niche market,’ says Christine. ‘We had found women like us, women who appreciated afternoon tea and a good book, women who wanted something different – role models with substance.’  :laugh: Waity doesn't have substance.
While some might dismiss their blogging as simply the hobby of two royal-obsessed women, in fact, it’s just one facet of the pair’s hugely successful content and consultancy business, Effervescence Group. Monetising a global interest in the new wave of royals, in the past six years they’ve built a profitable company – they say earnings have increased 400 per cent since 2016 (but, tellingly, won’t reveal precise figures).  ??? Why not?
Today the Effervescence Group encompasses WWKD?, RepliKate (a more practical archive of all her looks), Meghan’s Mirror, Dress like a Duke (which chronicles the style of the royal men), plus the associated email newsletters and social media channels – Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest – for each site. They also have a new top-secret website launching next month.
They took a punt on Meghan after receiving more and more questions from their readers about Prince Harry’s rumoured new girlfriend. In fact, it was Amanda who first had the instinct that Meghan really was dating Prince Harry – Christine initially said she was crazy, but Amanda claims she ‘just knew’.  ??? Resonalbe people thought that he'd be gone; a joke.
When they launched Meghan’s Mirror in October 2016, nothing had been confirmed officially, ‘But I had a good feeling about it,’ says Amanda. Shortly after, when Kensington Palace released a statement asking the press not to harass Ms Markle, the number of visitors boomed, with website traffic growing 30 to 40 per cent each month. On the day of the engagement announcement, the site got a million hits.
When Christine and Amanda whir into action – as recently, when Meghan hit the headlines wearing a tuxedo dress to a performance of Hamilton for Harry’s HIV charity Sentebale – they use a combination of sources to identify what the duchess is wearing. There’s a team of in-house stylists au fait with the brands she favours, a network of fashion and PR contacts, and then their own intuition, having chronicled the 37-year-old’s style in minute detail since 2016.  :cookie:
‘It’s an adrenaline rush,’ says Christine. ‘We’re trying to do it quickly and accurately. There’s so much information flying at you. When we post something on Meghan’s Mirror, it’s taken as gospel. So if we make a mistake it’s going to be picked up by Vogue, The New York Times…’

Within hours of the duchess stepping out, Meghan’s Mirror will not only have posted details of what she is wearing, they will have sourced cheaper alternatives – called ‘Mirror Megs’. This is what gives their blog the edge over the myriad Meghan style blogs out there: a great Mirror Meg will sell out as fast as the real deal.
Having analysed every aspect of the duchess’s life, the pair say they feel as though they know her. ‘Several sources have confirmed that Kensington Palace is aware of our blogs, so we wouldn’t be surprised if she had stumbled across us, too,’ says Amanda. ‘We think she’d be happy to see the amount of coverage we give to not simply talking about her clothes but sharing the story behind them and why she might have chosen them.’  :bored: MM; Mio
But back to business: how do they turn all this into hard cash? Browse the shop on Meghan’s Mirror, and you can purchase items ranging from an iPhone case she was once spotted with to a Stella McCartney dress she wore in 2011. Meghan’s Mirror gets a small commission if you click through and buy. Along with these affiliate links, there’s advertising, plus brand collaborations – sponsored reviews, giveaways – with the likes of Timex and Mint Velvet, who are keen to reach the audience of roughly one million women aged 18 to 49 who visit the Effervescence Group sites each month. They also provide consulting services, helping others grow their websites.
Business-savvy Amanda and Christine are still spotting new commercial opportunities in this Meghan madness. A Meghan’s Mirror cookbook is in the works, taking inspiration from recipes she’s shared previously on The Tig or Instagram. ‘Cookbooks are a big market these days,’ says Christine. ‘And people are interested in what’s in Meghan’s morning smoothie.’
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-6139641/The-women-making-fortune-Meghans-move.html
Basically an article advertising the blog. Meghan's pr does send out what she has on within minutes of her stepping out the car, sometimes when she's in the car.

Side bar from the article:
From Hollywood to high society
Says Amanda, ‘Reports indicate that stylist Jessica Mulroney [above left, Meghan’s best friend – her sons and daughter were in the bridal party at the wedding] has come to London to help her figure out her new look. Because it can’t just be “actress in Toronto”, it needs to be “duchess in London”. It’s balancing Meghan Markle the American actress with Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex. At her first royal events people got nervous because she wore beige and the styles were very restrained. At recent engagements, though, we’ve seen some of her natural style return, which is more modern and North American, rather than “Boden” British.’

Yep, can't try to change a trollop into a lady, hense her reverting back to her trashy dressing showing off her very thin legs.

I question the sanity of anyone who would want to copy trashy Meghan. I know she has a peculiar body shape, & legs resembling toothpicks, but with what she spends on clothes, her worst defects could at least be disguised. I haven't seen her in a single well fitting outfit. As the saying goes, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. Meghan is definitely a sow's ear.

The murks has no regal fashion sense. Her looks go with sex kitten Hollywood casual and she looked good in those type of outfits. She doesn't have the classy look like Audrey Hepburn or Diana so she is a hit and miss type because some outfits look good on the hanger and not on her or her weird body type. So good luck to anyone trying to dress her. I am sure Harry liked her not for what she wore but what she took off.

Meghan’s designer friend Misha Nonoo’s website is updated to label a skirt as 'recently worn by' the Duchess – a DAY after the royal sported it at her Grenfell recipe book launch
Meghan's designer friend Misha Nonoo's website has been updated to label a skirt as 'recently worn' by the Duchess - just a day after the royal sported it at her charity cookbook launch.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, wore the designer's $250 (£190) 'Saturday' skirt on Thursday, at a reception celebrating the launch of her Together: Community Kitchen cookbook, supporting families affected by the devastating Grenfell Tower fire.
And Misha, 31, was quick to gush over her friend's choice of skirt, saying she was 'truly honoured' the piece was worn by the royal to celebrate the 'brilliant project'.
The designer - who is widely believed to be Meghan and Prince Harry's matchmaker - also shared details of how to buy the black pleated skirt with fans on Instagram Stories.
On her website, the product description for the Saturday skirt reads: 'Recently worn by Meghan Markle and great for any day of the week'.
The Saturday skirt is 'made on-demand', with the brand explaining how the item will be shipped approximately 10 business days after orders are made.   :thumbsup: smart
Meghan paired the black pleated skirt with a $300 (£230) cashmere bodysuit from US label Tuxe and $1,195 (£905) blue coat from Canadian brand Smythe at the event  at Kensington Palace.
Following the reception, Misha posted on Instagram: 'Very proud friend today as Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, launches "Together: Our Community Cookbook" with her lovely Mum and Husband by her side.
Posting on Instagram Stories, the designer added: 'Meghan, Duchess of Sussex looking elegant in our Saturday skirt at the launch of her cookbook with the Hubb Community Kitchen'.  :bat: Meghan’s book
It comes after Misha was criticised for cashing in on her royal connections, after a sponsored post advertising the Husband Shirt worn by Meghan was circulated on Instagram.

At first, I didn't believe that Me me me was merching, but after reading so many posts with facts to back it up, I'm now completely convinced.  Especially at this point, four months into her marriage, the fact that she's still using designers who happily post statements that she wore their clothing, there is not longer any doubt.  The outfit she wore at the cookbook launch looked terrible on her.  She is too wide waisted to carry off the pleated skirt look.  The coat was nice, but did she really need a new one?

So Meghan's latest top, for the sporting awards, cost almost $2000 and is by Oscar De La Renta. What does she have against upper end high street British brands?? Why was it necessary to select such a ludicrously priced top for this event when there are many, many cheaper ones that would have looked fine?

Who needs trainers? Meghan pairs sky-high heels with a £1,636 Oscar de la Renta top and £555 Altuzarra trousers as she joins Prince Harry on the netball court on a university visit
Many of the participants were dressed in leggings, trainers and white tops for the session but Meghan opted for something far more glamorous.  
Her navy blue top from A-list favourite Oscar de la Renta featured a flattering draped hemline and thin belt that nipped in her waist.
She paired the top with wide-leg trousers by Altuzarra, whom she has worn on a number of occasions.

I actually think that Meg might be getting old designs and not the newer stuff. I might be wrong, but remember how everyone used to think that Kate was getting handmade couture year after year, but it was only her first year that Charles was splashing out? Then Kate started reusing a pair of peep toe platform shoes and she began wearing badly tailored clothes from what we think are outlets; everyone thought it was bespoke, but it was in fact high street and likely outlet stores? I think Meg is getting nice stuff, but not custom made and I do wonder if she's getting knockoffs, things made in the same cut/fabric, but less quality workmanship. Just about every new royal consorts gets the best, but thing is, that over time that changes. Fergie got finery and elegant clothes, but after her scandals and shoddy work ethic, she stopped getting indulgences and no longer seemed to count for much.

Meg is getting the same treatment, but I do believe that after a while if she keeps stepping on enough toes and violates protocol, she will get less and less as time goes by. I think with her family drama and the frustration that the palace must feel with her jet setting all over is just going to make things worse. Charles would be best to just indulge her and then start cutting her off once she starts making more messes with her life and position.

Post by: Cali San D on September 25, 2018, 04:37:08 pm
^I think Charles likes to test his daughter-in-laws to see what they are like. Are they about wearing the really expensive designer clothing or are they humble enough to wear Debenhams, House of Fraser or Marks & Spencer? Afterall, it is HIS they are using to wear really expensive designer clothing and they do nothing to deserve it, just bang his sons.  :laugh:

And now since he knows they crave the designer clothing he slowly takes away the moolah and they are forced to accept clothing from outlets and past collections, even freebies (my opinion).  :tehe:

That Oscar de la Renta top she wore at Coach Core looked really cheap. What kind of fabric was that, wool? It looked itchy.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 25, 2018, 04:52:16 pm
Thing is, Meg is getting designer gear, not haute couture (even though she did do that at the wedding with Givenchy) and I do believe that Charles is going to yank it all out from under her. I do think however that this might be a leftover piece of stock sent to her by the design house or in fact she has ended up just getting it at outlet. I see she has become someone who will wear anything with a designer label, a known designer label, no matter how garish or stupid it is.

Since ODLR passed away the designs from his house have been uninspiring. Still expensive but not worth it as they miss that spark ODLR had. Just my opinion.

One thing I do realize is how oddly uninformed Meg and Kate were about their future in-laws. Kate allegedly needing to take civic lessons about her own country (something that she surely would have been taught in school) and Kate constantly messing up precedence when as a Brit she should be well aware of the rules. As for Meg, Meg keeps up the front of not knowing that Harry went to places like McDonalds and Disneyland and pretended to know nothing of his personality.

As for ODLR, it is a shame what his fashion house has come to; more retail than anything else and it is a shame that there is no one among his House that has any respect for the fashions he made for so many.

MEGHAN MARKLE, 37, is the Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Harry, 33. She recently wore a blue Jason Wu dress that sparked baby rumours. Now a stylist has explained why Meghan chose the dress, and it is not because she is pregnanT

On 6 September Meghan and her husband Prince Harry attended the event in London, and the actress wore a stunning custom gown.

The blue dress was a custom number, likely to cost in the region of £1,500.

Fitting loosely around the stomach, the dress caused some to speculate that the Duchess is pregnant.

One Twitter user said: “It looks to me that Meghan Markle is pregnant.”

Another wrote: “New photos of Meghan Markle in a blue dress have kicked into overdrive rumours that she and Prince Harry are expecting a baby.”

However, Meghan actually chose the dress to flatter her figure and create curves, stylist Anna Mewes said.

This is because the actress has a wide waist, means adding ruffles helps sculpt her shape.

Anna told Express.co.uk exclusively: “She doesn’t have much waist definition naturally so the ruffles help with this by creating the illusion of curves as the style nips her in at the waist whilst adding volume either side.”

Meghan need to get one of the suits dress team to style her

^^^Supposedly JM's new PR company helps brands enter new markets. British brands in their own home country is not what JM and MM's PR is all about. However, on the Oz tour MM could wear British designers .. if they pay the price. See, big design brands are more likely to keep quiet for such 'agreements'. British designers are much more likely to be loyal to the queen and talk. M doesn't like it when people expose her shady stuff.

I think Meg wishes she were American royalty and could wear American designers and have money of her own to blow on designer gear and frivolity. It should be clear by now that if she could, she would be living in Park Avenue on Harry's money and would be whooping it up with Hollywood celebs who would otherwise not look twice at her. Her fashion choices are screaming "I MADE IT" and she wants the world to know it. Wearing the high end stuff, she's living out her dream of being an American socialite/heiress and Harry to her is merely a way for her to get her bills paid.

Duchess Meghan flew a celebrity makeup artist to London for her first solo engagement
Tuesday night was certainly a big moment for the Duchess of Sussex, who attended her first solo royal engagement at the Royal Academy of Arts in central London – and it seems she opted to have one less thing on her mind than usual in preparation for the event. Meghan is thought to have flown over her makeup artist, Daniel Martin - who did her makeup for her royal wedding in May – for the visit to the Oceania exhibition, suggesting she was keen to make a good first impression as she arrived without Prince Harry by her side.
Her go-to MUA posted on Instagram, alongside a shot of the Duchess' new cookbook and one of Meghan arriving at the exhibition: "Spent some QT with my friend yesterday and got lost in her incredible book! Couldn’t be more proud of you lady. Definitely inspiring my Thanksgiving menu this season."https://www.hellomagazine.com/healthandbeauty/makeup/2018092762796/meghan-markle-flew-celebrity-makeup-artist-over-first-solo-engagement/

According to his own Instragram account he was on his way to the Continent (on holidays presumably) and stopped off at London, anyway. He's a huge friend of Meghan's so we don't know that there was any expense involved at all.

Meghan still has friends from her days at NorthWestern, who attended the wedding, so she certainly hasn't discarded them. One guest she had known for 15/16 years came to the wedding. And she's known other Canadian ones for years.

How do we know he was going to the continent on holiday?  With the lies given out by murky´s PR it is very difficult to believe anything. Strange it just "coincidentally" happened at the right time.  Not buying that one, at all.  The trouble with people who lie, and give their pr lies to spin, is that forever after you can never believe a word they say. Very sad, but once you start lying trust crumbles.  Knowing murky, once it got out that she had flown him in to make her face/hair look even more unattractive, she quickly got the lie put out by him to cover her a$$. All too coincidental for me, and I am not a fan of coincidences.  Her hair in particular looked dreadful, greasy, land and a flat mess.

Shoes were nice, but too big, no tights and cracked heels.  The frock, big split up the front.  Saw it on the Givenchy page, the model wearing it made it look good.  Fast forward to murkle and it looked very tarty.

Her fashion sense would appear to be non-existent, as usual.

^ It's possible that it's a lie that he happened to be on holiday in UK and accidentally decided to work during his holisay on tge very important duchess whose assistant gets their car door opeded and closed for her.

On the Ireland trip she flew in an entourage of stylists. One was from US or Canada. Was it 11 or 13 people entourage for a two day trip. It sounded too extravagant for what was presented fascionwise. Same with this stylist. She probably flew him in and brf politely responded by placing the guy that opens and closes the door on the other side of the car. imo.

This expert has revealed the reason why Meghan Markle keeps wearing black…what do you think?
SINCE returning from her month off in August, Meghan Markle has worn some seriously chic outfits.

From a £2,800 Givenchy dress, to a pair of stylish Altuzarra trousers worth £600 and a midi skirt designed by Meg's pal, Misha Nonoo priced at £190, we've been going wild over the Duchess of Sussex's style.
But despite Meghan's magnificent wardrobe, we've noticed she's been wearing several black outfits recently - a stark change from earlier this year, when Meg opted for dusky pink several times in a row.

In fact, out of five engagements in the last four weeks, the 37-year-old has worn black on almost every occasion.

For a performance of Hamilton, Meghan wore a Judith & Charles black tuxedo dress worth £320, and only a week later, the Duchess chose a £1,800 all-black Altuzarra suit for the WellChild Awards at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

A fortnight on, at the launch of  Together: Our Community Cookbook, which shares recipes from women who were brought together in the aftermath of the Grenfell fire, Meghan wore a Misha Nonoo skirt and a £230 cashmere bodysuit by Tuxe - both styles were black.

"The occasions when she is choosing to wear black suggest she isn’t seeking to be the centre of attention."
That's all she wants to be - the center of attention!

"She is OK with being in the background."
Again, no!

"Black is her way to deflect attention off herself and onto the causes she is supporting – putting them in the spotlight."
Seriously?! The price of the black clothes is what gets the attention, not the color and not the causes she is supporting! If she wanted to highlight the causes then wear a modest priced outfit that isn't black or repeat an outfit.

"Black allows the wearer to recede, almost disappear and not be noticed," Karen added.
Its dumb for her to try and blend into the background by wearing black when she is going to be noticed anyway as Harry's wife and newest member of the RF.

For the sake of security, she's supposed to be wearing bright colors so security can find and get to her quickly if there is an emergency. Wearing black only helps her blend in with the other socialites and therefore by being so indistinguishable she is creating a nightmare for security surveillance.

I think she wears black because she sees herself as akind of high fashion, Victoria Beckham wannabe femme fatale.

I think she's going to end up like Victoria Beckham; she will spend most of her time promoting herself and her marital 'brand' that her husband will start straying and she'll get upset, but her 'brand' will be too valuable for her to walk away from. She'll have a few kids, but her 'brand' will be too important for her to relinquish for full time motherhood.

^ Exactly. With the only exception that I do not believe that there will be kids. She needs at least one so that she can live rent free in KP for the rest of her life even if she divorces but my gut tells me that she's not going to be able to do it herself and option ii will not be allowed for her and in the end a global ambassador will be the only thing left for as long as she can pull the hrh connection. Afterwards she'll be back to talentless wannabe celeb.

I have no doubt that there will be children. If there were issues with either of them (and I am including Harry here), they would not have rushed out talking about having children. They most likely got thorough medical exams. I hope she has healthy pregnancies and the children are healthy.

I think it would be best for the couple if they could have a loving family and be good parents. She may just have two children.

None of the senior royals go in for "full time motherhood" they have "help."

These quotes/ the whole article is a load of bs and trying to justify her funeral style. It began with the wedding. Maybe Haz & Murky should get another title instead of the one they have, duke & duchess Addams. Waity is already Cousin Itt and has an Uncle Fester, so it's pretty perfect, really.

The reality is that she has zero sense of occasion, fabric, appropriateness and color and it shows. She keeps flying stylists from US but to spend 13K to look casual while on a charity evening...  :bored:

Also, black is a safe color. The kind of color that will not raise red flags immediately that she's merching the winter collections or the sting collections or what not.

Meghan shuns British design AGAIN: Duchess of Sussex sports a £4K outfit including a leather skirt and an Italian cashmere coat for her first visit to the county that inspired her royal title
She's known for championing Canadian labels on her royal engagements, but today the Duchess of Sussex missed the chance to showcase British design on her first official visit to the county that inspired her royal title.
Harry and Meghan arrived on the south coast this morning for a whistle-stop tour of Sussex, with the former Suits star opting for a cream coat from Italian design house Armani, believed to have cost around £2,000, and a £369 leather skirt by German brand Hugo Boss.
She teamed the ensemble with a £69 shirt from & Other Stories, which is part of the Swedish H&M group and carried a £1,685 handbag from trendy New York designer Gabriela Hearst.
Along with £160 of accessories from Missoma, her entire ensemble cost £4,383.
Celebrity stylist and designer Lucas Armitage told Femail: For Meghan’s inagural visits to the county her title hails from, I would have expected to see her pay homage to the county and country with her choice of outfit.
The Duchess also carried on her habit of using her handbag to champion an ethical message.
New York designer Gabriela Hearst is known for her ethical and sustainable manufacturing standards and the Patsy bag which Meghan carried today was a runaway success.
The widely-sought after bag was a sell out in several colours, showing the brand clearly doesn't need a boost to its fortunes, whereas Meghan could have used the opportunity to champion a British label.  
Meghan's preference for North American brands has been evident since her wedding to Harry in May 2018.
Last month it was reported that out of the 22 outfits she has appeared in since she joined the Royal Family, only two have been by British labels.
It's believed that the influence of her best friend Jessica Mulroney may be the reason for Meghan's loyalty to little-known Canadian labels such as House of Nonie and Judith & Charles, which are closely associated with the Canadian stylist.
These brands that were hitherto unknown to the British public are naturally thrilled by the publicity boost.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6234875/Meghan-shuns-British-design-visit-Sussex.html


There was one moment, however, that was borderline cringey. While Meghan and Harry were shaking a group of kiddos hands, she tried to put her hand on his back multiple times in row while he kept moving around.  :tehe:
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/a23582479/meghan-markle-prince-harry-cringey-pda/

^ She's really throwing the money out with both hands, by the fistful. Not even Waity has ever done this, plus shunned Brit brands all round.

The PDA is beyond childish and cringe, the shirt looks like Harry's straight out of the (dirty clothes) hamper and the price tag is obscene.

Mulroney, yeah who else is behind these messes but the slug-lipped one.

Soooo, how much did this event’s outfit cost?  Has she worn something twice yet? 

Blouse not buttoned appropriately for its drape, nothing is tailored well and she didn’t carry off the leather skirt well.  A sweater would have been a cleaner look than wrinkly, unpolished blouse.  The hair again and too clingy.  Same schtick.

I can almost hear her: But, Harry, look, I dress like myself, in my own unique style, and those peasants would do anything to criticize me - the blouse is wrinkled, the Armani coat is not British, the Boss skirt does not look good on me. Can't they just stop giving me bad press and start buying my merch $8. Jess has worked so hard to secure those big brands. Why can't the peasants understand that I'm HRH now and they should all loot at me, fawn at me and my impeccable effortless chic style and buy my merched $8.  :Kate: (crying on cue, expecting bigger spending allowance)

I think the stupid twit thought she would get designers BEGGING to clothe her and she would be feted by the UN and basically in a position to take designer gear in a form of doing the designer some big favor. Instead she has to pay full price and she's not getting feted by the heads of state around the world.

You know, I think she made a serious miscalculation on her climb to the top; she quit what she had, in order to prep herself for an even bigger role, but she didn't think that the UN wouldn't give her more of a role once she was married to Harry. The BRF is oddly unconnected to the UN and it is kind of natural that she anticipated a large role on the UN stage. Instead the UN has let her leave, cut her out, and she has the designer gear, but it is way out of proportion to the fact that she does day to day appearances wearing clothes that are way unneeded. It's not like she's attending UN galas. She splashes out in anticipation of attending high level functions, but she isn't going to them and I think Charles did indulge since he might have thought that Meg might take the BRF to the UN. Instead, it hasn't happened. Like Kate, she's fallen flat.

I think her fashions are about her trying to dress important, so she becomes important to the diplomatic world. It has not happened.

All of which were very possibly assumed by all parties. Yet, makes no sense, inherently, as to how they arrived to those conclusions. She gave, what, one speech on the UN's behalf? She has no actual experience in charity or humanitarianism. It's been said a million times already and here it is once more: She's not Angelina Jolie. Stupid is as stupid does, I tell ya.

She did celeb visits and did a speech on feminism (which was asinine since women are dominating business and other major areas) and I do believe that the BRF is now ripping their hair out now that they have two useless women on their hands. The BRF is making a lot of wrong moves lately, despite being as prominent as they are. They seem to over-anticipate everything these days, only to have things go wrong for one reason or another. Meg foolishly quit the one role at the UN that she might have managed to build into an even bigger one and she foolishly got rid of her charity roles that she had, basically would have brought in and given her real purpose to continue with. She could do small speeches at the UN and that would be the role for her in the BRF and Harry could use her position to end up giving speeches on behalf of Invictus and wounded vets and that would be the way for the BRF to actually get diplomatic ties that they DESPERATELY NEED.

^ She let them go because, in my opinion, she was building herself up to another role where she possibly felt she would not have to do the building work, and could glide right into her new role. I don't think getting stuck in and sticking with things down to the details is her strong suit, based on what I've observed. A lot of the 'humanitarian' work she did seemed slapdash, as slapdash as her un-ironed blouses.

I think HM will since HM's main impulse is to protect the BRF, which is why Kate and Meg were so frantic to join and now that they're in, they get away with everything. if the IRS does do something, I am certain that it'll cause a huge stink between the US and UK governments, so realistically, despite the fact that the BRF is supposed to maintain the ties of diplomacy built by the UK government, the BRF has been damaging ties painstakingly built by UL politicians.

IMO, I think the mercy money scam's real where Jessica gets free clothes and accessories for Meghan to mercha nand then sends a bill to Charles to pay for the full price of the items and Jessica and Meghan solit the money. Wouldn't it be fraudulent then to have Jessica transfer the money into Meghan's UK account unless it's still in Jessica's Canadian account. Meghan's last engagement, she looked a mess, like she didn't spend anytime getting dressed as she didn't iron her shirt and especially her hair looked really bad like she had no money to get it straightened out and properly coloured. There's an article I believe that's in the duchess sussex thread that tells how Meghan can be arrested. I beleive it mentioned moving money around.

If they're doing this, billing Charles just to get bucks out of him even though Meg is in fact getting it all freely, then Charles will go CRAZY and I don't mean in some funny way. The man is plain evil when it comes to money and he will likely get murderous if he is in fact getting ripped off by his newest DIL.

Charles only spends a lot on himself and maybe is a bit generous with Fawcett and Camilla. But the man would not get ripped off, he watches every penny and probably has wall to wall people to monitor the output of money. Charles is not a country bumpkin IMO.

It's allowing her enough rope to do herself in and t prove again that she's not in the royal family. There's no way that Charles would allow this. IMO, he seemed digusted in having to pay for Waity's yearly expensive wardrobe which is only a fraction of what Meghan's spent since the engagement and celebrity wedding. I see tax fraud and embezzlement in Meghan's future.

Charles is not immune from being manipulated or ripped off; all of us are vulnerable one way or another and if there is some kind of scheme between Meg and Jessica, I am certain that it's a carefully crafted one. Unethical, not blatantly illegal, but still it's ripping Charles off if Meg is technically getting freebies in exchange for publicity.

And I'm sure that, if this is going on, she would never think she'd get caught. They'd base their confidence on the fact that the money was in Canada, and that she did "pay for the clothes" and whatever. I think they're playing with fire if they think Charles isn't going to follow the money and let her play her games just until he gets sick of it and decides to pounce. And when he does, I think he will go absolutely wild to the degree that one would hear the screaming in Iceland.

This is all speculative, but it doesn't bode well if MM thinks she a clever clogs with no idea who she's really facing.

Not so understated after all! How Meghan accessorised her low-key outfit with £6,000 worth of gold and diamond jewellery for Eugenie's wedding  bignono
And while royals watchers were distracted by the idea of another royal baby on the way, they may have missed the £6,000 of gold and diamond jewellery adorning the Duchess of Sussex's fingers and wrist.
MEGHAN'S £6,000 JEWELLERY HAUL FOR THE ROYAL NUPTIALS
The jewellery worn by the Duchess of Sussex at Princess Eugenie's wedding is from designer Pippa Small and was adorned with Herkimer diamonds.
£1,720 - 18-karat gold diamond bracelet
£3,720 - 18-karat yellow gold rings
£520 - 18-karat gold crystal earrings
As she watched Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tie the knot, Meghan showcased earrings, a bracelet and rings by the designer.

But I will come up with something less crude in the future. Because whenever I see photos in the pre duchess stage, they give out that message loud and clear so I can't help but comment about it when one comes up.

Clad in black $199.90 high rise jeans by Australian brand, Outland, and a $203 Boss Oversized Blazer by her friend, Serena Williams, the Duchess completed her look with a Maison Kitsune button-down collar shirt for $75 and ankle boots by J.Crew for $318.
She finished off the casual outfit with a necklace by friend and Australian designer, Natalie Marie.
Serena Williams later reacted to the sartorial nod from her friend on her Instagram page, writing: 'The face you make when you and Meghan have matching blazers'.
She accompanied this with the 'heart eyes' emoji.
Meghan wore the 'Precious Initial' Necklace with the letter 'M' on it, and paired it with the Pascale Monvoisin style.
The 'Precious Initial' style retails for $500 online.

Outland Denim Australia does a good job, really. They are a local brand who give employment to Cambodian women in danger of human trafficking and exploitation. Buying, and wearing as Meghan is, this brand, helps these women and gives the firm great publicity. She wore a pair of jeans in Wales that saved a local company. They received publicity and many order after that.

^^That untailored blazer looks ridiculous.  And the boots should either be tucked into the jeans or meet them exactly to the top of the instep.  You’d think she’d care more about her appearance as a rep than making her bffs more wealthy.  This is her one and only job and not an opportunity to represent or support anything or anyone else than the Queen and Country.

The jeans concept is a worthy one but display them with some style.

Glow like the Duchess of Sussex! The $80 beauty secret to Meghan's luminous skin revealed
Since the Duchess of Sussex arrived in Australia, her skin has been glowing
FEMAIL reveals the $80 secret behind her luminous complexion
The product Meghan swears by is Jane Iredale's Peaches & Cream bronzer
We also share the other skincare and makeup products the Duchess, 37, uses 
Meghan's makeup artist, Min Min Ma, recently revealed how she gives the Duchess her naturally glowing look, which is all fresh skin, freckles and bronzed cheekbones.
Describing her signature look, Min Min explained: 'A sun-kissed complexion, soft smokey eyes in bronzy, earthy tones and soft nude pink or coral lips.
'Meghan has naturally gorgeous skin, so I do very light skin makeup to ensure her freckles remain visible and use a bit of under-eye concealing.'
Elsewhere on her face, it has previously been reported that the 37-year-old royal is a fan of DECLÉOR's Aromessence Rose D' Orient Soothing Oil Serum.
This is a blend of 100 per cent natural essential oils including neroli, bitter orange and sweet almond that retails for $90 (GBP £49).
Min Min also applies G.M. Collin's Instant Radiance Anti-Aging Eye Patch, before putting on Meghan's eye makeup.
When it comes to foundation and concealer, she uses Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua foundation and YSL's hero product, Touche Eclat.
The finishing touch comes by way of Jane Iredale's bronzing palette, which has been clear to see on the current royal tour.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6288431/Glow-like-Duchess-Sussex-80-beauty-secret-Meghans-luminous-skin-revealed.html

As she is now "cough cough" an alleged member of the British royal family then she should merch British fashions/clothing, fly the flag for Britain, not wear the rubbish she does.  She has worn nothing I would ever want, whatever the price of the item.  She is like one of those people   -  you could put a million dollar frock on her and she would still look like a scruffy tramp.  She lacks in every way.  More suitable to being the cleaner, not the wife of a prince.

The Roksanda design, which retails for $2376 (GBP £1295), is Meghan's first nod to the British fashion industry while on tour
Meghan paired this outfit with Stuart Weitzman's 'Legend' Pumps, which retail for $528 (GBP £287), and what is believed to be Birks Bee's Chic Earrings in Blue Topaz.
The $1,615 (GBP £880) style featured a straight, sleeveless neckline and full pleated skirt, with contrasting caramel and white stripes.
The pregnant Duchess, 37, paired the contemporary design with $147 (GBP £80) Castaner canvas wedge espadrilles, but she swiftly broke with royal protocol when she ditched them to step onto the sand.

The designer Duchess Down Under! Meghan wears £11,000 worth of labels plus £5,000 in bling in the first four DAYS of her royal tour with Prince Harry (and there are still 12 days to go)
The cost of Meghan's tour wardrobe has already exceeded £16,000 (AUS $29190) in the first four days of engagements - including almost £5,000 (AUS $9121) on jewellery alone.

The Duchess, who is expecting her first baby in the spring of 2019, has been showing a hint of a baby bump in dresses including a form fitting £972 (AUS $1773)white frock by Canberra-based Karen Lee - fittingly named the 'Blessed' dress - she chose for the couple's first engagement in Sydney on Tuesday.

She also showed her support for her close friend Serena Williams in Dubbo on Wednesday, throwing on a £110 blazer from the tennis star's eponymous label with a white shirt and black jeans.

And the mother-to-be remembered to give a nod to her new home on Friday, opting for an £1,850 (AUS $3375) navy dress by the British label Roksanda.  

Meghan has thrown some relatively affordable pieces into the mix - including a £40 (AUS $73) white shirt by Maison Kitsune, a £140 (AUS $199) pair of jeans by Aussie brand Outland, and a black Club Monaco dress for just over £325.

The 37-year-old has also been seen recycling several of her ensembles including a Martin Grant trench coat and a pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps that have both had two outings so far.

But despite these nods to restraint, the cost of her wardrobe to date has already hit £16,388 (AUS $29898) - including £4,826 (AUS $8804) worth of bling.  

Tuesday 16th October

Taronga Zoo, Sydney

The couple kicked off their long list of engagements with a visit to Taronga Zoo.

It was the Meghan's first bump appearance which she made in a £972 (AUS $1773) 'Blessed' dress by Karen Gee and a pair of Stuart Weitzman Legend High Heel Pumps in nude £360 (AUS $656).

The mother-to-be then swapped her stilettos for comfy flats by Rothy's, £110 (AUS $200), as the couple boarded a boat from the zoo bound for the Man O'War Steps.

She wrapped up in a Martin Grant trench coat, one of her pricier pieces at £1,287 (AUS $2347) and embraced the sunshine in a pair of £242 (AUS $441) shades by New Orleans based brand Krewe.

Tuesday also saw Meghan pay tribute to her late mother-in-law by wearing a pair of her butterfly earrings as well as one of her gold bangles. The price for these are unknown.

Afternoon reception at Admiralty House, Sydney

Meghan flawlessly pulled off a costume change as she returned to Admiralty House for a reception hosted by the Governor-General, swapping her white shift dress for a khaki green pleated button-up shirt dress, her most expensive piece at £1,728 (AUS $3152).

She slipped back into a pair of nude heels this time by Dior and costing £490 (AUS $893) down to £245 (AUS $446) in the sale. She continued to wear the late Princess of Wales' jewellery for the reception.

TOTAL FOR DAY ONE: £5,189 (AUS $9466)

Wednesday 17th October

Dubbo

Meghan flew the flag for Australia in a pair high rise jeans £140 , by local brand Outland as she arrived in Dubbo on Wednesday.

She covered the first hints of her baby bump in an oversize white shirt by Maison Kitsune, a surprisingly budget piece at just £40 (AUS $72).

The mother-to-be, who is known for supporting her designer friends, could be seen wearing an oversize grey check blazer from her pal Serena William's own fashion range costing £109.95 (AUS $200).

As she touched down in the town of Dubbo, Meghan shunned her usual stilettos for a pair of more practical ankle boots by J. Crew, £178 (AUS $324).

She completed her look with a pair of dainty necklaces by friend and Australian designer, Natalie Marie.

Meghan wore the 'Precious Initial' Necklace with the letter 'M' on it, and paired it with the Pascale Monvoisin style, £295 (AUS $538). The 'Precious Initial' style retails for £272 (AUS $496) online.  

TOTAL FOR DAY TWO: £1,034.95 (AUS $1888.15)

Thursday 18th October

Melbourne

Meghan arrived in the coastal city wearing a smartly tailored £703.23 (AUS $1282) navy dress by Australian label Dion Lee paired with the Martin Grant trench she had worn two days earlier.

The duchess paired the dress with £556 (AUS $1014) Manolo Blahnik BB navy stilettos, a £1,510 (AUS $2754) Gucci Sylvie chain bag.

She later swapped the blue number for a black Miguellina Dress by American brand Club Monaco costing £325.26 (AUS $593) that wouldn't have looked out of place in the boardroom, and slipped into her favourite Rothy's black pumps which had been worn in Sydney. 

TOTAL FOR DAY THREE: £5,486.49 (AUS $10,009)

Friday 19th October

Bondi Beach, Sydney

The mum-to-be showed her support for Australian design by donning a £880 (AUS $1605) maxi dress by Melbourne-born designer Martin Grant for a morning trip to Sydney's Bondi Beach, pairing it with wedge espadrilles costing £80 (AUS $145) by brand Castaner.

Meghan kept accessories to a minimum, wearing a simple £228 (AUS $415)teardrop pendant from Los Angeles jewellery designer Adina Reyter and a pair of stud earrings that are yet to be identified.

Macarthur Girls High School 

Pregnant Meghan opted for the £1,295 (AUS $2362) two-tone blue midi by British designer Roksanda for her visit to the girls' school in the city and kept it on for back-to-back meetings with the Australian Prime Minister and leader of the opposition.

She paired the flattering A-line frock with nude suede pumps by Stuart Weitzman, £360 (AUS $656), for her engagement on Friday.

The duchess accessorised with some serious bling from Canadian jewellery brand Maison Birks in the form of topaz earrings at £498 (AUS $908) and a 18kt white gold bracelet £2,538 (AUS $4630).

TOTAL FOR DAY FOUR: £6,434

TOTAL SO FAR £16,387.44 Jewellery £4,826 Clothing £11,561.44

What do royals do with all of their gifts? The protocol Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have to follow when it comes to presents from Australian fans
Then, one of several things happens.

The royal family's official gift policy states that they can accept and use gifts from individuals, provided they cost less than GBP £150 (AUD $276).

If gifts from individual people do not fall into these categories, they may be given back to the person, gifted to 'another body or organisation [who] might be able to make better use of them than the Member of the Royal Family' or treated as an 'official gift'. 

Each year, the Royal Family releases a detailed list of every single gift that has been received, including details about who it came from, where it was given, what it was, and who it was for.

This means that nothing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle receive - be it organic carrots, Vegemite or a pasta necklace - is left unaccounted for.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6292881/Royal-tour-Prince-Harry-Meghan-Markle-fan-gifts-theyve-given.html

Meghan wore an elegant $AU2,927 black frock by New Zealand designer Emilia Wickstead, a choice that was seen by many as a nod to the ANZACs. She also wore a pillbox style hat by Philip Treacy and paired it with a matching clutch bag.

The new Duchess of thrift! Meghan Markle recycles favourite $2,000 cape dress by Stella McCartney at the Invictus Games Opening Ceremony
The $2,106 (GBP £1,147) design, previously seen on the Duchess of Sussex in April during the Queen's birthday celebrations, was selected by pregnant Meghan for the Invictus Games Opening Ceremony in Sydney.

Showing just a hint of a baby bump, Meghan teamed the cape dress with a matching coat from actress Gillian Anderson's collection for British label, Winser London and a messy ponytail.

She finished off the look with a bespoke Dior navy satin clutch, $11,000 (GBP £5,993) Birks Cushion Cut Sapphire and Diamond Drop Halo earrings  and nude heels by Stuart Weitzman for $375 (GBP £204).

It wasn't long before 'the Meghan Effect' took hold, and the Winser London website quickly sold out of her 'soft wool swing coat'.

'As worn by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex at the Invictus Games opening ceremony in Sydney,' the website was updated to read by the time Sunday morning rolled around.

Gillian Anderson also publicly thanked the Duchess on Twitter, writing: 'Thank you Meghan for wearing my #GAWinserLondon Swing Coat to the Invictus Sydney opening ceremony! You're beautiful!'.

Comment:
isabella f, Manhattan, United States, 4 minutes ago
Scratching my head why she would wear a coat over her shoulders whilst wearing the Stella McCartney dress with a long cape detail? The coat hides the fact that it's a cape dress! The other women pictured are wearing dresses alone or suit jackets so it couldn't be very cold. Plus the navy shades clash and the coat is terribly wrinkled at the bottom. There are so many items in her wardrobe she could have worn that would have made more sense. Such as even the Givenchy coat with matching dress she wore to Eugenie's wedding.

Harry was dressed casually in a grey jacket and blue shirt, while Meghan sported a black turtleneck jumper by Australian company Wolford under a $935 blazer by Californian brand L'agence.

She teamed these with Outland 'Harriet' jeans and her Aquazzura Deneuve Bow Pumps, which retail for $1,053.
The Australian-designed $199 jeans sold out within hours of the Duchess first wearing them on Wednesday in Dubbo.

Meghan finished off her dressed-down Sunday look with a tried-and-tested accessory and another nod to Australian fashion: Her $295 Oroton cross-body bag.

Royals have worn swim suits on their private vacations.

Royals have worn sporting wear, such as Kate on the hockey field or Kate and William boating, or Princess Anne on horseback.

Never, ever, has any royal on an official engagement representing the Monarchy put on a revealing, see through, cut up to here and down to there outfit. 

She is a narcissist and therefore believes she can get by with anything.  She is wrong.

That's it for me.  This cover up outfit, or whatever it's called is beyond inappropriate;  it's perverse in my opinion.  There are only two explanations I can come up with:  1.  Some 'guidance' came from TPTB regarding her (and at times Harry's) behavior and she's thumbing her nose at them (You think that was bad?  how about this?)  2. She thinks she's untouchable, so she can wear what she wants and everybody will love her in the end.   
Given that they've been apart a bit, I have to believe that Harry wasn't with her when she got dressed.  I don't (can't) believe he would have supported her dressing this way in public.  She is not on personal time here.  As Yooper pointed out, when the royals are on tour any time they are outside, they are representing the Queen.

Meg is what Harry wants her to be, at any time and she isn't mainly focused on goodwill. I believe that she's aware that as long as Harry is pleased, she is secure; if he isn't pleased, she is insecure. Being the mommy/vamp is part of what attracts Windsors.

Meghan’s bridal beauty guru Daniel Martin claims young girls are wearing LESS make-up because the natural Duchess has made them ‘feel comfortable in their own skin

There is no doubt that the Duchess of Sussex has had an impact on our wardrobes with the Meghan effect in full force as her clothing choices sell-out almost instantly.

But the mother-to-be has apparently also had an influence on our beauty routines according to her makeup artist.

US based makeup artist Daniel Martin, who was responsible for Meghan's beauty look on her wedding day, claims that many woman are choosing to ditch their cosmetics thanks to her influence.

Speaking to Vogue Martin said: 'Because of Meghan, people are feeling comfortable in their own skin.

lol this is too funny .does he have a makeup line coming out soon? .Meghan makeup is hit and miss and you can tell when she does it herself or has a pro do it.

Oh there was the Kate effect first. Who buys those clothes? I don't believe they sell out unless a few are made. This is just hype but she is not as good looking as on Suits so the more natural look is why she is plainer nowadays. Kate is still very made up though.

 I don't care what she wears now. I saw a collage of photos from her single days and she is half naked in many of them with her breasts almost out. Thank God they are small enough to hide behind the small piece of cloth that covered them. How does someone like this get in and be a fashion icon. The world has gone mad.

Meg is wearing a dress inspired by a Mexican painter while visiting a South Pacific Island?

Her clutch bag is a traditional Fijian pattern, why didn't she ask a company to send her some dresses with that pattern?!?!

A pop of colour! Meghan Markle dons a $2,110 Frida Kahlo-inspired gown and her favourite $147 wedge espadrilles in Fiji - as she carries a clutch from a local Suva market
Looking relaxed while greeting some of the campus' students and crowds of royal fans, Meghan Markle stunned in a $2,110 AUD (£1,151) Frida Kahlo-inspired silk dress by Parisian brand Figue.
Her hair was arranged by the Duchess' personal hairdresser George Northwood and pinned back with some elegant frangipani flowers.
The stunning gold thin serpent bracelet she's wearing on her left wrist is suspected to be by Shaun Leane and worth a staggering $8,434 AUD (£4,600).

A tag was left on her clothes. It's been discussed widely online. Most agree it's a boo boo. Meghan hurriedly dressed in the plane and her Personal assistant Sam Cohen or another member of the entourage should have snipped the tag off. It's a minor faux pas, nothing major. You can't even read the tag.

They do, but this time around people are fed up; second, Meg wasn't born to all this luxury and privilege and she has no business spending like she's known no different. As for being a debacle, it is. Shirking duties, disrupting security arrangements, glorifying themselves instead of the charity workers and players of Invictus, yes, I think it is in it's own way a debacle.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on October 25, 2018, 04:02:51 pm
I would not say everybody is. Some for instance don't care.

I know people who work in security. They cannot be dictated to by people they are guarding. They are out to protect them. I think there is a reason for the security disruption.  There is more attention to "warning signs" like a package just left standing. What if something had happened and there was really a threat. Would she sit there so she won't look "bad" and be criticized by DM people. Some perspective is needed here.

There is no definitive place where all her spending and actual costs are accounted for.

She took a break from some duties. She did not leave the tour in the middle or anything like that.

I think Invictus should be able to have some flexibility or the royals could have scheduled this another time. Some cooperation among schedulers was sorely needed here.

Meghan Markle's Dress Designer Reveals How They Were Quietly Clued Into Her Royal Baby Secret

Meghan Markle‘s pregnancy meant some changes had to be made to her royal tour wardrobe.

Don O’Neill – the creative director of Theia, the brand behind Meghan’s elegant white dress that she wore in Tonga for a private audience with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau’u – jumped at the chance to create a look for the Duchess of Sussex.

“When her stylist reached out to inquire if I could make a dress for her Australian press tour, I stopped everything we were doing (my bridal show was just a week away) and immediately went to work on Her Royal Highness’ gown,” O’Neill says in a release.

The Theia team completed the look in just two days and shipped it to her. Although they got word that Meghan “loved” the piece, there was a major caveat.

The recycling royal! How Meghan has been subtly re-wearing staple items in her tour wardrobe - including her £566 Tabitha Simmons heels and £1,300 trench coat
Meghan, 37, has worn Tabitha Simmons slingback heels with three outfits so far
She has also worn her Outland Denim jeans on three occasions during royal tour
Duchess of Sussex stepped out in Sarah Flint sandals she previously wore
Meghan has mastered the art of a wardrobe staple so far on her royal tour - subtly re-wearing key items on multiple occasions.

The Duchess of Sussex, 37, has worn her £566 Tabitha Simmons 'Millie' heels with three different outfits so far in Australia and Fiji, including both formal and more casual looks.   

She has also worn her £1,287 trench coat by Australian designer Martin Grant on two occasions while in Sydney and Melbourne, paying tribute to the country with her choice of outerwear.

Meghan - who is expecting her first child in the Spring - also re-wore her Castaner canvas wedge espadrilles, priced at £80, in Fiji today, after wearing them during a visit to Bondi beach in Sydney last Friday.

That frocks gives me the creeps, just like she does.  It looks like something out of that film, was it The Birds.  She got it wrong again, in frock and how she behaved.  More like a Halloween type frock, maybe she should get it out next week.  Overdressed, the others all looked far better, they dressed for the event, she didn´t.  Does she think she is in early teens with that horror frock, if so it was a bib miss for many people, the comments about it have been hilarious.

Post by: YooperModerator on October 27, 2018, 01:45:40 pm
10k is an outrageous amount to spend on a dress that isn't even for a formal, tuxedo event.  I don't mind the dress itself.  It's fun and well made.  But, it's more of an attention getting costume and unnecessary indulgence so the likelihood of it being worn again is probably zero.

^ The DM's fashion correspondents will have a good idea of what a couture designer dress costs. In fact, anyone does if they browse Net-A-Porter recently. The fact that the dress is POA is also very revealing. I'll bet it cost more than £10k.

Post by: Kuei Fei on October 27, 2018, 04:05:30 pm
No, Charles isn't shelling out; the British taxpayer is. Charles didn't get all that dough via hard work in business and the actual workforce; he got his start via the taxpayer duchies and so I believe that there shouldn't be any debate about whether or not Charles paid, since he didn't. Those taxpayers are the source of money for her frocks.

The Point for me is that the BRF is one of the world's largest Foundations, nonprofit orgs, charities, etc, so how does one reconcile donating to any of their causes if they are seen displaying conspicuous, daily, excessive wealth that is, frankly, doing nothing for the betterment of the very people who support them?

I don't object to state events where attire is expected to be majestic and top shelf.  But, the daily grind in underprivileged areas?  It's bordering on misappropriation and conversion of funds when that indulgent 10k cocktail dress and so many more, could have been downplayed, more budget friendly and allowed for some semblance of well-managed stewardship.

In short:  the message is sent and received as "why don't they give instead of asking for more support when they can blow money on stupid stuff that is unstable (doesn't last, worn once, disposable asset)?

A 16-day tour of Australasia, requiring frequent changes of clothes, public appearances and formal dinners would not be any pregnant woman's dream scenario. But if one thing has been made clear during Harry and Meghan's first overseas Royal tour together, it is that she is really proud of her pregnancy.

It's likely she is at least 15-weeks pregnant. Still early days for a yoga-fit, body-conscious, incredibly slim woman like Meghan. Many expectant mothers do their best to disguise the changes taking place in their body for as long as possible, but not the Duchess of Sussex.

Instead, if she hasn't been wearing a loose dress or draped coat drawing attention to the possibility of a scarcely swelling stomach beneath, she has had her hands placed gently over it.

Since Royal tour wardrobes are put together with as much planning as the D-Day landings, it is likely that much of the preparation would have taken place before the Duchess knew she was pregnant. And I suspect quite a chunk had to be rapidly ditched and re-thought to adjust to the new circumstances.

The team in her office and no doubt her tour companion and friend Jessica Mulroney, who was spotted out in Australia last week, will have taken great care putting together a wardrobe knowing that every appearance would be interpreted as sending a message, every necklace and clutch bag signalling as clearly as if they spoke.

And it's a major task: by yesterday, day 12 of the tour, Meghan had worn 21 different dresses and 14 pairs of shoes. So far her tour wardrobe is estimated to have cost £46,754 – not including her jewellery.

The first step will have been to scour the fashion world for Australasian designers to wear, (Emilia Wickstead and Martin Grant your time has come), put together mood-boards of traditional motifs (come in native flora and fauna), and, if Meghan wasn't previously hot on the colours of the various national flags, no doubt she will be able to do a Mastermind on them now.

Traditionally the Royal Family is keen to throw in a large number of symbolic nods to their host country, but Meghan seems largely to have stuck to her usual sober palette and lack of embellishment, with the exception of a brilliant Fijian blue Safiyaa gown for that country's state dinner.

The Family usually would also take the opportunity to spotlight British fashion, but apart from a Roksanda dress to visit the Macarthur Girls School and two Brits, Stella McCartney and Antonio Berardi, at the opening and closing of the Invictus Games, Meghan has chosen not to do this. Instead she used the tour to broadcast her interest in female opportunity and environmental issues.

Ultimately though, nobody wants her to look like a workaday version of the rest of us. The Duchess of Sussex is a Royal ambassador. We want her to be glamorous, sensitive, stylish, warm, contemporary and a little bit regal. I don't think there's anyone who could say she failed.  ???

^^^That is an absolutely disgusting amount of money to spend on her.  She’s been in the family for how long, by comparison, about 5 minutes?  I don’t expect sack cloth and ashes but how about a Budget for heaven’s sake to check her gross spending?!  The BRF should know better or she’s got them by the ba@@s.  My sympathies, taxpayers.

I don't believe, and never have, that either Charles or Meghan are spending these vast sums on clothing and accessories. Charles in particular would not be that generous over another woman's outfits besides his beloved Camilla. I believe many if not most of the expensive dresses she's worn have been loans or subject to huge discounts because of the publicity gained. On the whole I'd go with loans. Diana did something like that in the early 1980s.

^If true, why aren’t they all wearing clothes with that price tag?  I can tell you why I think they don’t.  Image.  This sets a horrible image in front of the majority of people who work very hard yet still struggle.

No matter how anyone tries to sell this, it doesn’t fly.  Bad optics, pr.  Commondecency is utterly discarded to showcase this, frankly, still untested and under public eval new member of the public largesse.

Meghan Markle dazzles down under with a £400,000 jewellery collection that includes a £150k diamond bracelet and butterfly earrings once worn by Princess Diana
And what better time to flaunt it than on this tour – the jewels Meghan has worn so far are estimated to be worth more than £400,000.
Not only has her husband given her some of his mother's precious heirlooms, but she has been given gifts by her father-in-law Prince Charles and grandmother-in-law the Queen too.
Rings with a secret
Meghan's birthstone – green peridot [the ring is actually emerald]; Baby Sussex birthstone – diamond; Harry's birthstone – blue sapphire.'
MODERN: British designer Shaun Leane’s Talon earrings, £225 ROYAL GIFTS: Diamond bracelet from Charles worth £150,000, and diamond and pearl earrings from the Queen, worth £4,275  
SAPPHIRES: Drop studs by Canadian jeweller Birks, thought to be the most expensive Meghan has worn and valued at £13,082   TRIO: Three Stone necklace by Pippa Small, worth around £1,500  
Poignant tribute to Diana
The beautiful butterfly earrings Meghan wore on day one of the tour were first worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, on her 1986 tour of Canada when Harry was still a toddler.
The bracelet Meghan wore on the same day in Australia was also Diana’s. She was spotted wearing it in 1990, on a visit to a housing estate in East London.
In Tonga, Meghan teamed her white Theia Couture gown with Princess Diana’s aquamarine ring – it had its first outing during the Duchess of Sussex’s evening wedding reception in May.

How the Duchess of Sussex has put her own unique twist on her wardrobe during the royal tour with Prince Harry by focusing on eco-friendly fashion
Comments:
J.B. Hass, Downtown, Australia, about an hour ago
These two change their rhetoric to suit their agenda. MM was the humanitarian walking around carrying a bag emblazoned with slogans of alleviating world poverty and hunger. Her actions of blatant spending once engaged, contradicted everything she said she stood for. She wears eco-friendly shoes and now she's an environmentalist? Look at that enormous carbon footprint on this tour. This woman is a walking contradiction.

And while it's not been officially acknowledged, the fact that London-based stylist George Northwood was spotted in the Royal entourage when they landed in Sydney is about as close to confirmation as we're going to get that he's the man behind the hair.
It's a look that's perfect for Meghan, with Northwood's creations reflecting not only her personality, but the new, more modern Royal Family that is emerging – casual, more contemporary, relatable, and touchable.  :laugh:

^ Yet, none of them spend half a mil on clothes and another half a mil for jewelry in 12 days only (yet the engagement ring and wedding band are missing). Whichever you spin this, whoever is brought in as a comparison, what Megan is doing is detached from reality and from what her job is all about.

Her PR is detached from reality and none of these obscene amounts of money for outfits endear her to anyone in the world. Au contrair, she's a cheap hanger and for sale to the brands in trouble.

Meghan Markle stuns in a $450 Hugo Boss high-neck dress, $900 peach-suede pumps and a $300 saddle bag that has already sold out - as she bids farewell to Australia
Boarding the New Zealand-bound plane from Sydney on Sunday, Meghan Markle stunned in a high-neck Hugo Boss dress, which retails for $450AUD (£249).

The mother-to-be, 37, chose to pair the ankle-skimming number with Aquazzura peach suede pumps that would have set her back $911AUD (£505).

Completing the outfit was a mini chain saddle bag from the brand Cuyana, retailing for around $317AUD (£175).

In total, the Duchess' wardrobe is expected to cost upwards of $100,000 from outfits worn throughout her scheduled 76 engagements.

^ I was about to complement on the choice of dress - a Boss, lovely color, impeccable cut as always, professionally looking and all that and then ... she went down the stairs in NZ with a different outfit and if she didn't button up the coat, we would have had a glimpse of the behind... I don't know why she doesn't want to top Kate in that department. Pregnant and bottomless would be much better headline than: yet another price tag is still hanging, you careless not so chic hanger.

The original spaghetti strap dress cost £1,900, (AU$3,430/US$2495) although Meghan's bespoke version is likely to have come at a higher price.
The total cost of her wardrobe thus far has exceeded £80,000 and she's predicted to hit the £100K mark by the time she and Harry fly home on Friday.

I find it odd that the SM keepshighlighting that the wardrobe will hit £100K mark by the time this tour's finished. There seems to be now outrage about this expenditure from the press; as if this is quite normal occurrence. I expect they'll explain when the pr wars really kick into high gear.

Revealed: The Duchess of Cambridge is STILL the most powerful royal fashion influencer… but Meghan is hot on her heels at number two
The Duchess of Cambridge is still the most powerful royal fashion influencer - but Meghan is hot on her heels at number two.

Kate, 36, is most likely to convince shoppers in the US to buy products by British brands, according to a new report.

She is followed by Meghan in second place, with Prince Harry and Prince William in third and fourth respectively.

Meanwhile, the survey found Kate is the most liked UK 'icon' in the US, followed by the Duke of Sussex and singer Adele - with the Duchess of Sussex in fourth place.

According to Brand Finance's British Luxury 2018 survey, Kate wearing a product  increases the desirability among 38 per cent of US shoppers.

The report found Meghan, 37, improves the desirability by 35 per cent, with Harry, 34, increasing a brand's prospects by 32 per cent.

Commenting on the report, Alex Haigh, director of Brand Finance, said: 'The monarchy is one of the most defining features of Brand Britain and the royal impact on the desirability of British luxury brands cannot be overstated.

'Endorsement by any royal, but particularly the Duchesses, is like the mythical golden touch and can transform a brand’s performance overnight.'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6320961/Kate-Middleton-powerful-royal-fashion-influencer-Meghan-behind.html

There might be interest in going to the designer's website to see what's on offer, but I ighly doubt it transforms to actual sales. In fact there was an article a few weeks ago saying that Waity/Kate didn't have any real effect and some designers got into debt to expand their business believng that myth.

She CAN be thrifty! Meghan dons her cheapest look of the royal tour as she sports a £35 ASOS maternity dress in New Zealand
The Duchess of Sussex stepped out in her cheapest royal tour outfit yet by pairing a £35 (AU$63/US$56) ASOS maternity dress with a high fashion coat as she and Prince Harry touched down for the final leg of their  mammoth tour.

So far, Meghan Markle has opted for a number of expensive ensembles - including a £10,000 custom Oscar de la Renta dress - for the 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

But as she arrived in New Zealand today, the mother-to-be wore the high street dress with a £540 (AU$974/US$692) Karen Walker trench coat that disguised her burgeoning baby bump.

The plaid and double-breasted trench coat the Duchess looked regal in is also not available to the public until mid-November. She paired the trench with £207 suede Sarah Flint heels.

Teaming high-end couture with high-street style is not something the Duchess has so far displayed a knack for since joining the Royal family, instead favouring creations past the price-points of many of her fans.   8)

So, the Oscar dela Renta cocktail dress was overpriced on the Fail's cost price list of Mdghan's clothing by $11,000 or so. Makes one wonder how many other items have been wildly over-priced, doesn't it?

As well as their little habit of putting in jewellery, shoes, bags etc that have already appeared, inflating things more. But of course you'd expect nothing less from the Fail. 'Make a Guess' ought to be their middle name!

We have Daily Mail watching on the prices of the outfits and Megan's mirror posting all the new things she merches. If she was wearing anything she already wore, we would have had the 'thrifty' articles. But Megan wears clothes only once. Why do you think she wears the clothes only once? Isn't it because she's a hanger and when the photoshoot is done she returns them, something the royals, like Kate too, don't ever do?

As for the second Oscar de la renta dress, wow - let's so some basic math. 10K pounds is $12K. The dress, per this tweet from someone completely unknown is $7K. The difference is $5K. As I said, basic math. Also, DM is not incorrect. New collections for ODLR are at the $7-10K pricetag. Megan's dress has a lot of fabrics used so I'd easily see it at the $10-12K mark. I searched on the website and it is not there, so how are ODLR accepting orders?

^ The twitter link doesn't work. What does M's mirror say about this day?
There's this saying - one swallow does not make spring.
Maybe M re-used 1 dress and spent less than $100 for 1 outfit. One. Ot of 76 outfits, all different head to toe.

Does that one outfit make M thrifty or conscious that in half a month she spent more than the future queen in a year on make-believe princess transformations. Or that most people don't even make per year, and with an 80 hour week, the amount she blows off in a forth night.  Does one inexpensive outfit and one outfit worn for a second time in 6 months of sporadic appearances (except this tour) make DM fake news or the big bad wolf for calculating how much this fake princess is racking up on the dress up department?

... I don't think so. And if this monstrosity was played out in US there would have been immediate reaction.

I'd like to know how much she's spent since May.  And not just on clothes.  Handbags, shoes, her crappy jewelry from her friend 'designers', travel to the US/Canada, hair extensions/stylists, makeup professionals, nutritionists, skin treatments and security, etc etc etc.

If it's not comfortably around $1M, I'll be shocked.  There's simply no defense for this woman's spending.  She's worn maybe 3-4 things twice and practically everything is couture including at least a dozen pairs of black slacks that all look the same.  Nitpicking about one or two lower priced items is ingenuous.  She's not even in line to the throne so as much as I don't think any of them deserve what they get, she really breaks the bank.

Harry's supposed remark, and I believe it, "Whatever Meghan wants, Meghan gets" is troubling because the question is, "Why?".   What's she done in 6 very short months to deserve these demands, budget burdens and expectations?

British general elections do not discuss funding for members of the BRF. That is a (British) Treasury matter and is sorted out between them and TPTB in the Queen's Household in the form of the Sovereign Grant etc.

That sort of thing does not come up in elections. And even if it did (it won't) it doesn't affect the Sussex or Cambridge households. These households are financed by Harry and William's private wealth, an allowance from their father Prince Charles via Duchy money for their and their family's living expenses, the funding of the KP offices and clothing for their wives on public engagements and tours. Charles also pays for Camilla's wardrobe and expenses and his own from Duchy money.

Although his Duchy accounts are laid out each year for Government assessors a portion (that portion which deals with his family's expenses) is kept private and is not discussed. Never has been. Therefore what the British people vote for or against in a General election (and there are many national issues are of concern) they are entirely separate to Duchy money and its expenditures. That will be so in the next election as well.

Again I do not believe that DM ranters (and the same old names come up each day) are mainly British citizens. Even if half of them were, with several thousand spread across the UK they will not be voting about Meghan's clothing allowance, for the reasons cited above. It is Charles's matter and Charles's concern, just as the conversion of Anmer Hall and the huge apartment the Cambridges live in at KP, which cost many millions, was.

As for Megan - I bet you that it is no coincidence that the moment she shows up somewhere there's Megan's mirror knowing exactly what she wore.

As for evidence - If I was IRS I would have wanted evidence that this is not merching and evidence of the price tags. And, I'll follow the money trail between JM and MM and the brands. And, I will demand evidence.

Meghan's £118K royal tour wardrobe! How designer labels and bespoke clothing to accommodate her bump pushed the Duchess' 41 outfits beyond the value of what Kate wears in a YEAR
* Meghan's 16-day royal tour is finally coming to an end, 41 outfit changes later
* Has sported high end labels such as Jason Wu, Givenchy and Brandon Maxwell
* Many items have been adjusted or made specially because of her pregnancy
* The value of Meghan's tour wardrobe exceeds Kate's new outfits for 2017  

She's been through an incredible 41 outfit changes since touching down in Sydney on 15th October, so it's no wonder the final tally for the Duchess of Sussex's royal tour wardrobe is rather eye-watering.
In the past 16 days, Meghan has worn clothing to the value of almost £118,000, including designer labels such as Givenchy, Jason Wu and Brandon Maxwell.

It's a particularly eye-watering total given that the Duchess of Cambridge wore new clothing valued at £117,000 throughout the course of 2017.  

In fact, the only remotely thrifty piece Meghan sported during the tour was a £35 ASOS maternity dress - teamed with a £432 coat and £1,700 earrings.

And given the fact that she's expecting, many of her garments will have needed to be adjusted or made specially for her to accommodate her growing bump.

For instance, the red Self Portrait dress she wore on arrival in Tonga was a bespoke version of one that's currently on sale, while the designer behind the Theia gown she wore to a reception in Fiji revealed he'd had to 'remake it with extra seam allowance'.

While some designers lend clothes to celebrities and royals, or offer a discount, it's unlikely that bespoke clothing would be either loaned or cheaply made.  

'When something is made bespoke it does limit it being returned,' celebrity stylist Rochelle White told Femail.

'However, Meghan knows that she will get wear out of the items and I don’t thinking returning them would really be an option for her anyway.'

While some of the expensive jewellery, shoes and accessories were already in Meghan's wardrobe, the pregnant Duchess has showcased a huge range of new looks during the tour.

Over the course of three days, she wore three pairs of designer sunglasses

Her only recycled pieces, aside from shoes and jewellery, were a Stella McCartney cape dress she previously worn to the Queen's birthday celebrations, and an Antonio Berardi ruffle midi dress first spotted as she supported Prince Harry at a polo match.

Rochelle says that despite the high value of Meghan's wardrobe, it's only natural that she wanted to represent the UK and the royal family in the best possible light on her first major overseas tour.

'I think that Meghan wanted to make sure that she was on par with Kate, not in a competitive space, but more knowing that some people might pick up on this.,' she explained.

Total to date: £117,934.62

So far - she only beat Kate in the wardrobe price but that makes Kate look better than her. So, wig glue malfunction please. Let us see the bald patches and if there's any real hair left.

IMO, she's still the actress independant from the royal family. The wedding was an opportunity for all conserned to use for pushing their products and projects. Never before has any other bride been allowed to mercha and waear extreme ly expensive attire and get away with all the things Meghan has. The  Express had an article prior to the wedding regarding the royal family would have to disclose what gifts and/or allowance they're giving Megahn or if she was hired. Needless to say, as an American citizen, she'll still have to deal with the IRS and she'll have to say how she affords a wardrobe that has to now have exceeded $2 million dollars since the engagement and after the wedding where she went hog wild with the spending/merchandising.

The royal style police: Hundreds of fashionistas give their verdict on Meghan Markle's $211,000 tour wardrobe – and reveal the one look they loved most of all
After sixteen days, 76 official engagements and a staggering 114 fashion items valued at around $211,000 (GBP £117,000), the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal tour is over.

But speculation hasn't quite stopped over how they performed, and which of Meghan Markle's outfits were the most popular.

Now, hundreds of members of the public have weighed in on their favourite Meghan Markle looks from the tour, voting for their favourite formal, casual and working outfit on the popular blog, Meghan's Mirror.  :cookie:

There was one look they loved above all others - Meghan's Oscar de la Renta gown worn in Sydney.

The voting is still open on Meghan's Mirror. To vote for your favourite royal tour outfit, please click here.    :stop:  clickbait to the site

What IRS needs to do now is follow the money and get brf's books opened to their inspection while at it.

Brits FURIOUS as Meghan Markle’s royal tour wardrobe 'cost £6,500 A DAY'

On the final day of the tour, Hello magazine reported Meghan’s wardrobe cost a massive £117,109.

The cost of the Duchess’ jewellery alone is estimated to have cost an impressive £58,951.

Her shoes alone costs £6,415, even though she often rewore them at different events.

And the cost of her bags, with her wearing the like of Prada, Gucci and Christian Dior, amounted to £5,681.

The most expensive item is said to have been a necklace made by British jeweller Jessica McCormack.

The necklace cost £13,645 and was worn to the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Wellington, New Zealand.

According to InStyle, Meghan did not have to pay for one single item herself.

Father-in-law Prince Charles is rumoured to have paid for all clothing out of his £22million royal pocket.

Brits have hit out at the Duchess, with some even branding her a “national disgrace” after the cost of her wardrobe came to light.

One fumed: “I assume an extension at the Palace is being built for all of her clothes at our expense.  :tehe:

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the figures, but said Meghan’s clothes were paid for “privately”.

https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/740081/Meghan-Markle-pregnant-royal-news-prince-harry-outfits-dress

Meghan's 30 outfits for her and Harry's 16-day tour Down Under cost £130,000 - from her £15,000 diamond and sapphire earrings to a £380 dress

She undertook 76 engagements with more than 30 outfit changes — adding up to an eye-watering £130,107.50. Nearly all cost four figures, and a few cost five — with the highest a whopping £17,000 (the cheapest was a snip at £380).

Where most people, especially Hollywood A-listers, would pull out their most extravagant, eye-catching creations, Meghan stayed classy with a subtle, often monochrome palette. Her wardrobe reflected causes close to her heart. Her black jeans were by Australian brand Outland Denim which employs women who have survived human trafficking.

Her environmentally friendly pointed-toe pumps were from Rothy's — made from recycled bottles.  The first splash of colour came for the state dinner in Fiji, with a bold 'Fijian blue' dress from British luxury label Safiyaa. The elegant, unfussy design was a wonderfully modern take on formalwear.

But all of this comes at a price. Here, we tot up the cost of Meghan's incredibly lavish wardrobe . . .

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6344195/Meghans-30-outfits-Harrys-16-day-tour-cost-130-000.html

Meghan's missed a trick! Less than a THIRD of the 74 labels the Duchess wore on the royal tour were British brands - and US designers were her favourite
* Duchess, 36, wore labels such as Burberry and Stella McCartney on royal tour
* She favoured US brands, wearing 25 different labels by American designers
* Of the 19 British brands she championed, 11 were an accessory or footwear
* Meghan has previously favoured Canadian and US labels on royal engagements
However, Meghan fell short of championing UK labels during the royal tour, wearing only 20 British designers out of 74 labels - the value of almost £118K.

Designers from the US were LA-born Meghan's go-to, wearing 25 different American brands - and some on multiple occasions.

In September it was reported that out of the 22 outfits she had appeared in since she joined the Royal Family, only two were by British labels.

It's believed that the influence of her best friend Jessica Mulroney may be the reason for Meghan's loyalty to little-known Canadian labels such as House of Nonie and Judith & Charles, which are closely associated with the Canadian stylist.

From budgie smugglers to carrots and even a weapon: The weird, wonderful and wacky gifts the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received during the royal tour

From tiny pairs of shoes to budgie smugglers, carrots and enormous bouquets, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have received a host of interesting gifts during the official royal tour.

While many of them were in honour of Meghan Markle's pregnancy - with gifts for 'baby Sussex' a popular choice - there was also a steady stream of notes and jewellery to take home with them.

What do royals do with all of their gifts?

There is a very detailed royal protocol that marks what happens to all the gifts and gestures from well wishers - and the Duke and Duchess do not hang on to the items for long.

After saying 'thank you' and carrying the items for several seconds, the Duke and Duchess pass the soft toys, flower, cards, bottles and jewellery to a member of their entourage.

Then, one of several things happens.

The royal family's official gift policy states that they can accept and use gifts from individuals, provided they cost less than GBP £150 (AUD $276).

These gifts have to be flowers, foodstuff and other consumable items, as well as other items of small monetary value.

This is how much Meghan's royal tour wardrobe REALLY cost


Total cost of wardrobe: £117,109.19

Total cost of brand new items: £64,893.86
The Duchess choose this occassion to try out various new styles and also champion new brands. For the first time she wore designs by New Zealand's Maggie Marilyn and three items from Australia's Martin Grant.

Total cost of reused items: £52,344.33
If you're travelling down under, you can't pack too much and, yes, that applies to royals too. Meghan proved nifty with her planning by rewearing lots of the items multiple times over the course of the tour - a Seasalt raincoat twice, a Martin Grant trench coat twice and numerous pieces of jewellery. She also packed her favourite Birdies Black 'Blackbird' flat shoes.

Cost of jewellery: £58,951.68
Man, are we jealous of Meghan's jewels. Of her impressive royal tour collection, various designer really stood out as clear favourites for her. She took a casual seven pieces of jewellery from ethical designer Pippa Small and six different items from Birks alone.

Cost of shoes: £6,414.93
This is the area of Meghan's wardrobe where she packed the most light, rewearing her Manolo Blahnik, Aquazzura and Tabitha Simmons heeled pumps multiple times.

Cost of bags: 5,681.88
She took the likes of Prada, Gucci and Christian Dior with her.

Cost of clothes: £46,168.70
That's a lot of outfit changes in 16 days...

Number of outfits worn in total: 40
Yes, 40! Our favourites had to be her Tuxedo white dress by Maggie Marilyn, her so-in-right-now long blazer by Serena Williams and her ultra ladylike Emelia Wickstead dress she wore for the ANZAC Memorial in Sydney.

Jeweler Learns Meghan Markle Received Earrings She Gifted Her — When the Royal Wears Them on Tour!
MONIQUEJESSEN
November 01, 2018 06:33 PM
Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.
Meghan Markle just put one up-and-coming British jeweler on the fashion map.

On one of her final engagements during the royal tour with Prince Harry, Meghan stepped out in New Zealand wearing a pair of sparkly earrings from jewelry brand Emily Mortimer. Now the jeweler, who works from a small studio in Suffolk, is experiencing sales from all over the world.

“It’s an amazing feeling when someone like her, probably the most photographed woman in the world at the moment, wears your earrings,” Mortimer tells PEOPLE. “I just went online to see what she had been wearing on tour, and I stumbled across it. I was ecstatic!”

The jeweler, who set up her business just three years ago, had sent Meghan a pair of yellow gold and white topaz teardrop-shaped pieces as an engagement gift last November.

“It was a personal gift, and I had no idea until that moment that she had received them!” Mortimer says.

Wearing the $453 earrings at a reception held at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Meghan chose to wear the sparkly jewels with her tuxedo-style Antonio Berardi navy dress.

“She looked incredible!” says the jeweler, who immediately called all her family to share the good news.

“I’m quite an unknown brand in the scheme of things so it’s been nice to see people across the world buying my jewelry,” says Mortimer, who is a protégé of London-based jeweler Kiki McDonough, a brand worn often by Meghan’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton. “We’ve had lots of sales from all over the world particularly in Australia and America – it’s been so exciting, and I feel so honored.”

On their whirlwind tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga, Prince Harry and Meghan completed 76 engagements over 16 days, with Meghan wearing many brands from local designers as well as her go-to favorites such as the French fashion house Givenchy and the Canadian jeweler Birks.

“I think it’s great that she supported so many different brands from around the world,” says Mortimer. “I think she’s a refreshing addition to the royal family, and I just love her style.”

Gifts are taxable to the IRS. She’ll also have to state who paid for her attire as KP said it was paid privately. Can American citizens refrain from filing taxes for a year?

^Re US federal taxes.  Sure!  Any US citizen can choose not pay their taxes if they want to have the IRS breathing down their neck, adding high interest rates, and everything's awful in their world.  But, the likely case here is that Sparkles would file. 

Failure to file is the real bad option here.  If you file, you can ask for an extension up to 6 months from April 15.  During that time, however, interest penalties are applied,  if your taxes go up to 3 years without being paid but filed, you're in deep trouble.  You can have your passport rescinded, face steep fines and, if really stupid, be jailed.

The IRS will look at your status as it was the year you should have filed or paid.  So, if she rescinds her US status in 2019, the IRS won't care and will look at her as a citizen in 2018 and act accordingly.

I don't see that here, but I do see an audit as a likely scenario.  The IRS will have red flags go up during an application for citizenship in another country.  And, no, they don't care who you are.  Do we know where she is on her US citizenship status?

Because Charles allows it; for some reason he's doing more for her than he ever did for Kate. As for Kate wearing high street, she built her PR on being thrifty and down to earth and also, she doesn't work so go figure, of course she doesn't get the good stuff. At least Meg is doing appearances.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Meghan's designer best friend bags a free £81,000 Jaguar during royal jaunt Down Under
Crowds of thousands Down Under have seen how just much the Duchess of Sussex enjoys performing her royal role.
But is her best friend, Jessica Mulroney, enjoying her elevated status a little too much?

I hear that the Canadian fashion stylist and her husband Ben, whose three children had roles in the bridal party at Prince Harry’s wedding, have managed to wangle a brand-new £81,000 car free of charge.

It will be provided by Jaguar, which supplies vehicles to the Royal Family. ‘It’s fair to say it has raised some eyebrows here,’ a Jaguar source tells me.

They are due to take delivery imminently at their home in Toronto, Canada, of a Jaguar I-Pace. Another model of the eco-friendly, all-electric car — which has around the same top speed as a Porsche 911 — was acquired by Prince Charles earlier this year.

The arrangement is understood to have been made while the Mulroneys were in Sydney for the Invictus Games, which Harry established to support injured servicemen and women.

Jaguar Land Rover is one of the event’s most generous sponsors and Ben Mulroney was seen speaking to figures from the Indian-owned car-maker at the Games.

As the daughter-in-law of former Canadian prime minister Brian Mulroney, Jessica, 38, enjoys almost royal status in their native country, where her husband is a TV host.

She has been a close friend of Meghan, 37, since the actress moved from California to Toronto, where the legal television drama Suits was filmed. At the Royal Wedding, she acted as ‘unofficial’ maid of honour.

Her presence in Australia at the same time as Meghan and Harry attracted much comment. Although the Mulroneys did not travel there in an official capacity, Jessica is understood to have acted as an unpaid stylist and adviser to Meghan.

A spokesman for the Mulroneys tells me: ‘They have not agreed to formally accept a Jaguar i-Pace at this time.’ A Jaguar spokesman adds: ‘We wouldn’t comment on details of any customers.’

Ben Mulroney is the son of a former Canadian PM and he is also a well known TV host in Canada (plenty of opportunities to plug Jaguar if he so wanted.) He was also the one seen talking to executives of the company, and it was Ben who was commentating on the IG for Canadian TV, with Jaguar being a sponsor of the Games. So how do we know that Ben wasn't schmoozing and talking up his Canadian TV profile with the car company in order to score a free car, (which I think is reprehensible btw, whoever does it)?

Of course, nothing to see here. Everything's innocent. Lots of smoke but definitely nothing to see.  :snob:

A Ben, a complete unknown man in Oz, is suddenly so influential there that he gets a free jag. Cause Jaguar, just like Oscar De La Renta, live to make $81K and $12K gifts. not  :snob:

Cause all brands in the world start asking themselves in the morning - how can I throw away $100K on the street because JM and MM think they are the most deserving of them all  :snob:

.. but the tour is successful  :tehe: that is, if you don't count the $200K for outfits  (we don't know the cost of security nor the cost of the entourage for M) for 16 days that will be paid by the unwilling contributor to this madness - the taxpayer.  :sigh:

Jaguar is an international company, and they most certainly do sell to wealthy Canadians. Ex PMs and their families get perks all the time.
Charles pays for the clothing and most of the entourage, (the KP staffers.) The Met covers the RPOs as they do Ny Royal overseas, and, as is usual on any Royal tour by anyone in Australia, other security is paid by the State Governments involved. As an Australian taxpayer I'll pay my bit, thanks. Just as, when I was in England, my contributions helped pay for several Royal weddings, including Andy and Fergie's whom I loathe.

Ben was there for the IG with his wife, who left earlier than he did back to Canada. Ben wasn't present for the entire Royal tour, neither was Jessica, and neither were seen with the Sussexes in Australia. Canadian and other PMs do have some pull. Cherie Blair and the Blair children certainly got enough perks over the years. Plus, this is the Fail reporting. How do we know this car was free, in fact. The DM  might be hinting that it's because of Jessica being Meghan's best friend (untrue) and stylist, but presents no proof of the insinuation because there isn't any.

Don't know about Canada but any former politician or family member would be breaking ethics violations if they received gifts while on a visit paid for by any taxpayer, however loosely, or, in this case, directly, if Jessica is a "fashion consultant" to Sparkles.  This could bite the BRF, if true.  Ben's a lawyer and should know better, if he's on the receiving end, so Jessica's the likely receiver.  Not cool.

I'm just catching up with this thread (and have a couple of others I haven't read in a while to catch up with), sorry for dredging up discussed things, but:

That beach dress with the thigh-high split which was basically see-through, I have no words. That she thought this'd be okay to wear on an official engagement is beyond me. Take out the "royal" stuff and "representing the queen", no sane woman would wear such a thing to a work event!!! That's a great dress for your private time in summer in your garden, at home or at the beach, and that's it.
Even Waity the Flasher managed to avoid sth as embarrassing as this.

The tag: no excuse for that and a major faux pas. 1. I'll never understand people who don't wash their clothes before 1st wear, so this is baffling from that point alone. 2. Tour wardrobe is usually prepared even months in advance, even though they married recently this wardrobe was nonetheless put together a while ago. So how come it hasn't been de-tagged, washed(!!) and prepared appropriately before leaving England? Usually work clothes are ironed once more after travel etc, so in that last stage, how can the tag have been missed?
Tags are for these reasons alone always a huge faux pas in my eyes. Unless you do what Carrie Heffernan did for one episode of King of Queens: shopped like a maniac, wore the stuff and returned in during the alloted time frame, in which case you can't take off tags.

The spending has been ridiculous.

The jewellery also. Waity's trinkets are horrible, never thought someone could top them, but here we are: Murky wears even smaller stones at even larger prices! Unbelievable.

And we have proof that she takes freebies, just like with the Cambs, even though it's "forbidden".
https://people.com/royals/jeweler-learns-meghan-markle-received-earrings-she-gifted-her-when-the-royal-wears-them-on-tour/

* Duchess of Sussex, 37, wore multiple navy outfits during her 16-day tour  
* She wore two dark blue ensembles for final day of tour in New Zealand
* Experts say choice of navy could subconsciously be about staying focused

^ If we entertain the rumor that this whole relationship, marriage and pregnancy are fake celebrity contract, then she chose badly. First, there's plenty of tell tales which celebrity relationships are fake but people entertain these because ... oh, well, gossip. But she wanted to link herself with brf, to push for the second coming of Diana.

The only problem is - mixing with a public persona comes with a lot of scrutiny and lots of her shady stuff has been coming out, in rumors, in blinds, in DM as well. She ain't walking away scar free from this. She ain't walking into a good role because Hollywood knows her and what she's capable of. She pretty much needs desperately to stay in this marriage because otherwise nothing glamorous awaits her. Unicef ... I don't want to predict big things but Unicef should be more vigilant what starlets they allow on their podiums from now on.

As for the navy, M's PR should give us an email or a website where we can send out sincere thanks for spelling out to us how thoughtful and smart she is. I bet that they waited and waited for the plebs to figure out how awesome M is with the dress colors but since we didn't figure out her smartness M's people spelled it out for us in DM. How thoughtful. Can they spell out the meaning of the p00p colors too while we're at it. And then the fascination with the funeral ones.

I think that she was told and encouraged to remain her tacky self because she's making an impact on the royal family; to bring them into the 21st century as because of her presence among them, they're woke.  :bored:  She was the one who used the race card to get to Harry and I believe now the royl family's letting her hang herself with her greedy narc nature as she's showing that the royal family isn't racist or intolerant. She doesn't realize that she's making it obvious that she's on the outside as no other royal member has behaved or gotten away with so much as well as her friends and cohorts making a living off their association to the royal family via her. I the nose getting tighter around her and her friend's necks? Jessica might be getting nervous at the news coming out about the car now that she's gotten a job onthe American morning show, Good Morning America. Karma is indeed a b*tch bcause the news of her getting the free car is being reported in other newspapers and should be on the gossip tv shows and other sites. It looks bad for her even though she's trying to deny it or reflect from the controversy.

What'll be interesting if she's doing a scam with Meghan regarding the double billing and Carles paying for the full amount for the wardrobe, and now that she has her dream jb nd doesn't want to lose it, she pushes Meghan under the bus and comes clean with that she's been doing. That job just came out of the blue that she hightailed it out of Oz to prepare for her debut a few days later, imo.

I have a different intake. Her PR has bought the support of Whoopie and her show and they sing their praises to her. The moment brf tries to do something to defend themselves from her - they'll turn on them and talk about them all the time.

I think Charles is held hostage by Megan's PR. BRF depends on their good name and Megan's using this weakness to hold them hostage to her demands.

I think that this is why she's allowed the obscene spending and disrespectful outfits or behavior towards officials and other royals. If anyone denies her anything she demands - Whoops and her panel will start using the race card for her. And there will be negative comparison with Kate: Kate was allowed this, Diana was allowed this ... poor black swan was not allowed this because of her skin color and because brf are conservative, stiff, uncool ... unlike their american princess, who is entertaining.

Why on earth would the BRF (the Queen or anyone else, including TPTB) be worried or upset by anything Whoopie Goldberg or anyone on The View panel said about Meghan's position! The BRF don't take notice of the commenters online in their own media let alone some woman host on a TV show in the States. I doubt that the Queen even knows who Whoopie Goldberg is, let alone allowing her to influence decisions made within her own family.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: Ariel on November 06, 2018, 10:53:29 am
I'll repeat what I said: M's PR is getting / buying people who will lie on the stand for her so to speak. These are people like Serena who sang her praise for a book with mixed up pages and spelling mistakes or like Whoopi who praise to the heavens that a private royal event should be gatecrashed by Doria only because of her skin color.

IMO, BRF is vulnerable to bad press that can put in jeopardy the US/UK relations, UK as well with Brexit going south and all that. I am confident that M is threatening to unleash her bad temper in the press if things don't go her way. That's exactly what a narc would do to keep their preys obedient.

If the British taxpayer allows this  truly tacky, classless Yankette to spend 130,000K or pounds on clothes, to do a tour of a few countries for a couple of weeks without protesting this and demanding Harry pay them back with his millions of pounds, then they deserve their economic plight. It is atrocious, never mind her outfits weren't all that great for the money. She heralds the fall of that society if she is allowed to continue. But if that is what the Brits want and the Commonwealth goes along with them, I have nothing to say. It is so outrageous, but the States has it's own outrageous things so who am I to say anything to them.  I can't read anymore of it without cringing.

^ Not necessarily. We don't know. The FO and Commonwealth Office provide a certain budget which covers 'expenses' if a Royal or royals goes on a tour at their request. There's more money available if it's a couple than a single of course, but it is a budget and not necessarily for clothing. (For instance if a Royal couple have to bring a nanny it could be used for that.) I really doubt that it is in the high thousands though for individual items of clothing, and that's where Charles comes in. If he is paying for Meghan's clothing on engagements as he has been for Kate's since 2011, then the money for the more expensive outfits would come from the expenses allotted to his sons and daughters in law from his Duchy income.

It was probably quoting the Fail, which did say so. The Fail says a lot of things, though. Every Royal is given a basic budget for any expenses they are put to that they wouldn't have if they weren't on tour on request of the FO/CO.

However, none of that is detailed for public consumption until Govt accounts are audited at year's end presumably, so I don't know how their journalists would know. What's happened in the past with Kate is that it's presumed that Charles pays for her big budget items when she is 'on duty' in Britain and abroad. We don't know whether Charles is doing the same for Meghan, but you'd  have to presume so. (Through the yearly allowance he gives his sons from Duchy money.)

* Talked about her style in the interview carried out before she became a royal
* Said her torso 'isn't long enough' to wear VB's dresses, loved by the A-list

Both a attention seeking woman who’ve no problem using each other for pr. VB does have nice designs but they’re just way over priced to make a profit, IMO. David’s money has to keep bailing her out of debt.

Cripes; her fashions are NOT loved by the A-list and her husband (who looks increasingly checked out) is the only reason she even HAS any kind of fame, much less a fashion house of her own.

How Meghan returned to her showbiz roots with high-voltage 'Hollywood' make-up for her first Cenotaph appearance – while sophisticated Kate opted for a more 'grown up' look for the solemn occasion
Former actress Meghan, 37, returned to her showbiz roots with a Hollywood-inspired palette as she observed the moving centenary service from a balcony overlooking the war memorial in London.

The mother-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, 34, next spring, opted for fresh shades of lilac and brown - and added highlighter on her cheekbones to ensure she looked great from 'every camera angle', according to a professional make-up artist.

It stood in contrast to her sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, 36, who opted for a more 'classic' and 'grown-up' look for the appearance.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Laura Kay, Professional Makeup Artist of Laura Kay London, explained Kate had opted for a 'serious' look while Meghan's was 'youthful and fresh'.  :tehe:

Award-winning makeup artist Stacey Whittaker noted Meghan's look was more 'sultry' than her sister-in-law.

The A.S.A (Advertising Standards Authority) would be all over this if the firm doing this was British. It seems to be an American firm, so BRF lawyers would contact the appropriate State authority I guess once it's brought to their attention.. Sometimes it takes a while. I remember the Queen's head being used to advertise something once and Diana's. Newspaper got onto it and the advertisers ultimately got into trouble over it and had to cease. They were European firms though.

Which I will never understand. I'm always trying to perfect my basic b$tch makeup skills lol but bronzing is the easiest part. You just need a shade right for your skin color and a big fluffy brush. Not only does Murky go overboard with the shade she uses, I also think the shade is more optimally suited for women who actually have brown skin of some shade.

All the money she and Waity throw away on clothing, you'd think they'd hire a make up artist to be on call at all times. Money would be much better spent. Then if they already do ... :nervous:

Revealed: The £50 dress from MARKS & SPENCER Meghan wore to attend the Festival of Remembrance with the royal family at the Albert Hall
Pregnant Meghan, 37, wore a £49.50 dress from Marks & Spencer for the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday night, it emerged today.

The mother-to-be arrived wrapped up in a heavy black coat and limited photos from inside the theatre meant it was difficult to identify the dress beneath on the night.

However M&S today confirmed the royal had worn its flattering Double Crepe Bodycon Dress for the occasion.

Commenting on the latest outing, a Marks & Spencer spokesperson said: 'We thought Meghan looked beautiful in our M&S Collection dress. We are absolutely delighted she is a fan of M&S and the British high street.'

Makes no difference if it cost 50 dollars or 50,000 dollars...it all looks the same on her. Somehow she makes an expensive dress look cheap. She never would have made it as a model.

She cut a few inches off her extention and the press has to write an article about her new haircut.  :bored:

Meghan, just like Wallace wore a lot of Givinchy.
Hubert de Givenchy (1927 - 2018), tall, noble and impeccably tailored, tells a story about dressing The Duchess of Windsor (1896 - 1986), whose husband, The Duke of Windsor (1894 - 1972) gave up the throne of England for the woman he loved.
“The Duke didn’t speak French – he spoke Spanish, German and, of course, English,” the couturier remembers. “He said to me, ‘Givenchy, you know, I really like what you do for the Duchess.’ But just as I replied, ‘Thank you, that is very kind, it’s very encouraging,’ he suddenly asked me, ‘Why is the price so high?’”
At that moment The Duchess entered, with a new bouffant hair-do by her hairdresser, Alexandre de Paris, trying to smooth things over: “Do you think the price is so high for all the joy and pleasure I give you with all the lovely dresses Hubert has designed for me?”
When The Duke died in 1972, Givenchy created a coat, dress, and pillbox hat for The Duchess. The all-black couture outfit, made in hardly two days and nights of work, was finished just in time for the plane arriving to take the Duchess to an icy reception in England.
She greeted the designer with the words, “Hubert, it is really marvellous.” “But I said, ‘No, it is normal; it is my job to do that,” Givenchy recalls. “Although there is a lot of criticism about the Duchess, she was a very elegant, amusing and entertaining lady.”

The shot of the Suits dress was better and it was sleeker and seemingly floor-length, the one from the KP dinner is a midi dress (unless customized to floor-length, we have no good pics to say what length the dress was in the end).

This isn't even a gown in the real sense of the word; when I think gown, I think of grand sweeping trains and faultless seams and the best possible fabrics. This is more like a dress you would wear to prom, not to a royal event. No recent generation of royals takes any pride in anything.

Revealed: The VERY clever make-up trick Meghan uses to highlight her 'best features' - and it helps to boost her pregnancy glow even further
* Meghan accentuated décolletage at Royal Variety with glittering highlighter
* Technique carries on the dewy look she favours on her face and boosts her glow
* Her love of off-the-shoulder and boat necks allows her to showcase trick
In fact, her love of off-the-shoulder and boat neck styles lends itself to a sweep of highlighter across the collar bone, and now that she's expecting her first child the technique only serves to boost her pregnancy glow even further.

Maternity wear? Meghan’s in a mini dress! Pregnant Duchess of Sussex glows in a burgundy frock and matching coat from her favourite Canadian high street brand Club Monaco
Meghan, 37, looked radiant this morning in a £282 burgundy dress with a velvet collar from her favourite Canadian brand Club Monaco as she arrived at the Hubb Community Kitchen in West London.
The mother-to-be's above-the-knee dress was a rather more daring length than we're used to seeing on the Duchess who usually favours midi skirts and dresses ending at the mid-calf.
The Duchess finished off the outfit with a pair of £770 black pointed ankle boots by her wedding dress designer, Givenchy.
Despite previously professing to dislike colourful lipstick, Meghan switched up her usual look and wore a subtle berry shade to complement her outfit.
Despite embracing a new life in the UK, the royal is still fiercely loyal to brands from Canada and the US - with many recommended by her unofficial stylist Jessica Mulroney who lives in Toronto.

A gift from Harry? Mother-to-be Meghan sports a new ring spelling out 'love' - as she continues to rip up royal style rules with her quirky accessories
The trinket is believed to be the $70 (£54) 'jamie love ring' from LA-based jeweller Meredith Hahn. 
The Meredith Hahn ring is available in a range of materials, including 18K yellow or rose gold vermeil, as well as sterling silver, all of which are priced at $70 (£54).
However, it is also possible to purchase a solid 14K yellow or rose gold option, both of which retail for $295 (£230).
Although the origin of Meghan's ring has not been confirmed, it appears as though her version may be rose gold.

She is the most hit and miss person I have ever seen in fashion. And in some photos she looks attractive and others plain. But always the messy hair and unkeptness looming over the look. I wonder how she is in person

Now it does maybe, but what is weird is she looked so good with it long in the Suits days.

^On Suits, her stylists were real pros plus, her hair, makeup, clothing was retouched and checked every minute. 

Her hair off her face here is nicer but also a food health necessity.  What bugs me is that stringy part that she tucks behind her ear.  If she'd give up the center part or, please God, really comb her hair, it would look much more polished.

True these are all the reality show girls and poor Murks only got third even with all the queen's horses and men, it couldn't get her best dressed again. ( I guess she got some People first placement).

sorry but needed to finish this thought after I looked at the pics and that is why the double post.... All these women looked hideous in their outfits!!! Actually Murks looked the best dressed in the ridiculous group. No wonder Kate fell out of the 10 top. Who are these lists from? Clearly these are jokes that some people take seriously. None of these women dress well.

^^ The list is a joke. The proof is in places n° 1 & 2. No need to look any further at the list than that to realize it's a hideous joke no one can really laugh at. I don't know if that's good or bad for Murky, because n° 1 & 2 sure as heck make Murky look very classy actually. Bad company can look good on the surface. In fact a mud-soaked pig would look classy next to n° 1 & 2.
On the other hand being in that company is no good once you just lightly scratch the surface.

^ I thought of Madeleine as well! Oh yeah Rania! Victoria too, though she has some misses. Letizia as well, and Maxima. Maxima sometimes wears hideous stuff, but always looks gorgeous. Mathilde is quite classy too. But I also have to add that I follow none of these ladies too closely, so I might be missing sth.
I think Salma of Morocco also looks great (at least the handful of times I can recall right now).

^ Yes, and also working for M's US PR agency. M tried 2 times already to wear what Kate wears on the day Kate wears it and the comparisons didn't fly favorably in her direction. So, she tries what every desperate wannabe famous does: tries to piggy back on comparisons with famous people. Poor fragile ego. Life must be very hard if even in a comparison with the Kardashians she can't make it to second place. 8)

But light years ahead of Murks. By the way, I know we L.A. people wear lots of black all the time, but pre-royal she didn't wear that much black.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2018
Post by: sandy on November 24, 2018, 07:49:35 pm
I don't see Kate as  light years ahead of anybody. She dresses in a blah style and has not really changed her hairdo.

I think green blue or dark red should be worn by both of them. Never mind black.

Agreed. Both are not shining brightly with a design or fashion sense. However, Megan is a minx trashy and no amount of price tag can change that. The only time she doesn't look like her signature minx look is where she copy pastes onto herself the clothes of Kennedy or Kate.

Meghan Markle wears outfit worth almost £2,000 as she misses Priyanka Chopra’s wedding
She appeared to be wearing a double breasted coat from Canadian brand Mackage.

This item is sold out on the brand’s site but can be bought elsewhere online for £789.95.

Always a fan of high end, international designers, Meghan’s accessories injected a sense of glamour to the look.

She wore the J Box clutch back from Malaysian fashion designer Jimmy Choo.

The black Elaphe clutch bag costs £850 from the designer company.

Beating the cold British chill, Meghan wore a pair of gloves she donned for Princess Eugenie’s wedding in October.

She wore a pair of Prada black leather gloves, an Italian fashion house. They cost £324.

This woman sickens me in that she must've sent a press release as to what she'd be wearing, just like all the other times before. It doesn't matter what the occasion, what she has on and the cost of it is sent to the press.

She was not invited to that wedding as far as I have heard.

The DM did this stuff about wardrobes before MEghan came along. There was talk about the Kate Effect, the Charlotte Effect, the George Effect etc etc.

Revealed: The £257 pink cashmere coat and Hugo Boss top Meghan wore for surprise solo visit to King's College London
* The royal donned a  £257 wool and cashmere coat by Canadian label Artizia
* She wore it over a fitted £82 black short sleeved sweater by Hugo Boss
Details of the outfit worn by the Duchess of Sussex yesterday have emerged - some 24 hours after the surprise solo engagement.

Pregnant Meghan, 37, made an unannounced visit to King's College London to join academics for a round table discussion on the value of higher education in tackling global issues.
The mother-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry next spring, sported a £82 ($105) short-sleeved knit sweater by Hugo Boss for the engagement.

She teamed the piece with a £257 ($328) pink cashmere coat by Canadian label Aritzia, a go-to brand she has worn on a number of previous occasions.

The royal kept her accessories to a minimum but appeared to be wearing the $70 (£54) 'jamie love ring' from LA-based jeweller Meredith Hahn.

Still found an opportunity to merch. To me, it looked like she crashed the event as it stated she attended unannounced. She seems to be settling up her own agenda to get photo opportunities to merch. She might now resort to crashing Harry’s event today as that was announced a few days ago.

^Definitely marketing that coat.  No true professional wears a coat over their shoulders at a conference table for 10 minutes for any other reason unless the heat was turned off but that’s not the case here with men not in their blazers.  Fake and inappropriate.

Wears a fitted sweater when she's 5 months pregnant, but deliberately wears an unbuttoned coat at Eugenie's wedding to stir up speculation. Says it all.

The coat over her shoulders is ridiculous, and she needs to brush her straggly hair.

Meghan's fashion muse: How the Duchess of Sussex has been drawing inspiration from Kate's wardrobe. So will this lead to bickering between the sisters-in-law?
* Staff are said to be 'baffled' at the similarities between women's wardrobes
* Meghan is thought to be struggling to adapt her attire to royal protocol
* Onlookers believed she may be looking to her sister-in-law Kate for guidance
* The royals have sported strikingly similar outfits during public engagements
But palace staff are said to be 'baffled' at the growing similarities between the two women's wardrobes, as it's claimed Kate's staff think the resemblance to her own sartorial style is becoming 'inappropriate'.
They told the newspaper that, while Meghan has always been a 'style icon' in her own right, she is finding it difficult to adjust from showbiz siren to demure duchess.
The Duchess of Cambridge relies on PA Natasha Archer to coordinate her wardrobe, while the Duchess of Susses is thought to be relying on close friend and fashion stylist Jessica Mulroney to help pick her outfits. 
'Kate's team are a bit miffed she's going down the same route as her and think it's inappropriate, as they're not as close as they were,' the source added.
The Sun's source also noted that Meghan has started wearing some of Kate's favourite British labels such as Stella McCartney, Burberry and Mulberry.
'Kate has even told Meghan what to wear in the past,' the source said. 'She's not the kind of person to get annoyed that somebody likes what she wears.
'But her team think it's strange there are now so many similarities.'

THe DM Is on a rampage with the Clickbait. Always the unnamed source. It's not as if there are huge dissimilarities in women's fashion. The two are bound to wear similar outfits.
