Sorry I’m posting rather late about the Christmas attire.  I was admitted to hospital on December 29 and am just now home and recovering.

I thought Kate’s Christmas outfit was fresh and elegant.  Sparkles looked like a hot mess, as usual, with hair falling out of her bun and dandruff on her coat.  And why such dark, gloomy colors?  It’s Christmas, for heaven’s sake — lighten up! 

Happy New Year, everyone!

Glad you’re on the mend SouthernBelle.
Meghan wears whatever she needs to make money merchandising. Funny that she finally wears VB as her company might have to close due to constant heavily losses.

The most popular beauty looks of 2018 revealed: Meghan’s natural wedding make-up, Kylie Jenner’s plump pout and Kim's razor-sharp contour were the top requested trends of last year
* Kylie Jenner's luscious lips came top of the most-wanted make-up looks of 2018
* Meghan's natural wedding make-up came runner-up on the beauty barometer
* The list was compiled by Bark.com and 2,000 make-up artists and beauticians
Meghan Markle's natural make-up was one of the of most wanted trends of 2018, coming in at number two on the list.
With 1.9 billion people tuning in to watch Meghan marry Prince Harry earlier this year, it’s no wonder that her makeup, the creation of MUA Daniel Martin, was so popular in 2018.
The duchess' elegant and simple look highlighted her natural beauty and was in high demand with make-up artists across the country.
Her natural look is achieved by sticking with light foundation and a touch of blusher, along with neutral eye shadow and sheer or pale pink lipstick.

Putting Meghan on lists guarantees press attention because she a divisive person. She uses too much bronzer to make herself darker than she actually is so she could play the race card whist out during public engagements. Harry wanted her to look herself; to show the world that she’s a very light skinned woman who’s used to passing herself off as white. I’m surprised that she’s not been accused of black face.  :bored:

Look like pantomime dames. I wish 2019 would be the year we lost the duck pout and Klingon eyebrows - and the Kardashians and their ilk - but I doubt it.

So fakery then. So sick of fake lips, brows, bums, contouring, hair extensions, nails, waist shapers....and the list goes on. Women are a big disappointment that this is all they aspire to and the men who encourage it are just as bad. Time to start promoting people who look normal and natural. There must be someone out there....you know, a bit of lip gloss and a touch of mascara and they're set for the day...

Revealed: How Meghan Markle's stylist best friend Jessica Mulroney 'kept an eye' on Kate's style for inspiration - but made a 'conscious effort' to avoid accusations of copying
* Duchess of Sussex asked Jessica Mulroney for advice after joining royal family
* Jessica, who lives in Canada, kept an eye on Kate as she 'hasn't put a foot wrong'
* Pair worked together to switch Meghan's showbiz style for demure duch
The pair knew comparisons with the Duchess of Cambridge were inevitable and so aimed to give Meghan her own unique brand - but Jessica 'certainly kept an eye on Kate's style because she hasn't put a foot wrong', a royal insider told Elle.
Jessica also described Kate as a 'great role model' for Meghan as they set about overhauling her glitzy wardrobe for more royal-appropriate clothing.
The royal insider told Elle that Meghan is keen to ensure her work wardrobe is not too  'trend-conscious'.

She’s put more than a foot wrong. That outfit she wore to see Hamilton, she looked like a cheap escort with her bird legs on display as it was basically a jacket with no tights.  :-X

Duchess of Sussex’s 2018 wardrobe cost more than any other royal
Meghan comes in at number one with a spending of 478,386 € (USD 508,574). Although “number is likely higher because only 255 pieces out of her 324 new pieces have prices and thus are included in this amount.”
One of the reasons Meghan’s number is so high is the Cartier Reflection Wedding Bracelet and Earrings with a price tag of 206,022€ (USD 233,000). They have included this in the total since they were never confirmed as a gift. However, if it turns out Prince Charles did gift them to Meghan as rumoured, they would be deducted from the total.
http://royalcentral.co.uk/uk/harryandmeghan/duchess-of-sussexs-2018wardrobe-cost-more-than-any-other-royal-113714
There just seems to be more questions than answers. Why would her wardrobe cost more than any other member? We’re to believe that Charles would just pay this obscene amount of money at the same time expect the rest of the family economize? It’s about time the press comes out clean and say what’s going on. They know because they’ve been teasing the public with these Jessica articles.

It's not a media punching bag and poor-Meg card if she kept spending and spending all year long, wrongly thinking that a set of new clothes will get the stink off of her past. Sorry not sorry.

No one else spent THAT much. The real figures are over 2 million, 1 million is the cost of outfits for the 16 day, 72 outfit me-me-me show Oz.

ALL the other royals - re-wear clothes, buy cheaper attires and as more frugal with the prices. Did Megan really need VB's crappy overpriced clothes and accessories for the Christmas walk?

I, for one, can't excuse the inexcusable.

Of course. Fergie got some good press for a while, but thing is, that she became the official scapegoat of the BRF and I knew that an wife of Harry's would be subject to tabloid abuse. Harry's wife could have been a Nobel prizewinner in all the areas where the award is granted, rich as Croesus, and drop dead gorgeous, but the press would subject said wife to one round of abuse after another. There is no way that any wife of Harry's would EVER be able to get better press than Kate. The palace will let Meg get abused since in that 'family' they prefer to let one spouse get all the abuse while the wife of someone of higher rank ends up getting better press no matter how worthless.

^ You're right. Usually the second son gets the playboy role and his wife the role of rotten apple.

But, but, this is not what's happening here:
1. Megan committed drug related crime in Jamaica and boasted about it
2. Wears winter clothes in summer and summer clothes in winter
3. Spends like there's no tomorrow
4. Used her own DM and twitter paid contributors to announce KP engagements.
5. Used her own speed dial paparazzo to snap the pics of her and Harry on the Jamaica wedding and same guy snapped her father "getting measured"
6. She stalked Cressida and Harry but lied she knew nothing of brf or Harry.
7. She was obsessed with Diana and with joining brf.
etc, etc

The press is not the bad guy here. The press is to be praised for publishing the ugly truths about her.

I applaud them for it.

Speaking of MM's style and choices of colors...

While I am probably one of her most ardent critics on this forum, I have to admit one thing: her choice of neutral colors is not necessarily the worst thing about her; Even though, yes - it CAN get boring.
Blacks, navies, grays and whites - a constant parade of neutrals that in the end are..well... boring.
Especially when no pop of color is used even in an accessory or lipstick.   

As someone with relatively similar coloring to MM in terms of hair, eye color and skin undertone - except quite a few shades lighter in complexion and a bit more olive green/sallow undertones, as I am Caucasian - I can attest to how incredibly difficult it is for such strongly-colored brunettes to look at their best in anything other than deep, dark hues. Or white.

There's a world of gorgeous light, soft and muted pastels and rainbows out there, yet they're not for such people.
They are for KM. For QE. And all sorts of other caucasians of North-Western European descent.

Pastels can only do "nice" on strong brunettes - IF they are bright enough; but never "waow!!".

That being said, she could do all sorts of luscious, strong reds from Ferrari to magenta and cranberry; and some bright blues - which she did a few times, I think.
But in general, I can empathize with the draw to the safety of neutrals.

Neutrals are also supposed to be modern and she's all about getting out the "modern/with it" message.
So I think she also makes a political point out of this whole neutral wardrobe - not just because strong neutrals actually suit her.

Going beyond color choices, which are not the worst thing about her style - what I find highly unfortunate in this department, IMO, includes:

- wearing dresses/skirts that showcase those terrible chicken legs.
"Skinny legs" does not automatically translate into "good legs".
She could use a constant diet of pants as much as Hillary Clinton does for the opposite reason.

- her messy hair style with wisps left hanging around the face. Unfortunately, this style makes her hair type look greasy, unwashed and tacky. She is no elf or fairy who could - maybe -  pull off this look.

- her overly relaxed outfits given the formal, royal context. Showing up with the coat open and hanging like it's a "chill" party is not exactly in line with her role. She only manages to make herself look "lesser" by comparison with KM and other members of the RF whose perfectly fitted, bespoke pieces automatically elevate their posture.

- Her overall posture/persona is simply not dignified.
She either bends and contorts too much (like during the announcement of their engagement), constantly fidgets with her hands - pushing wisps out of the face, covering mouth giggling, cradling baby bump, etc.  She also has a defect step - she steps weirdly.
In many pictures one foot looks like it's about to have its ankle twisted when it is set before the other. 

Overall, there is something traditionally "plebeian" about her allure. Not sure what style intervention could fix this. I am afraid this is a non-fixable.

^ It's non-fixable. That's why a $12K dress looks ugly or or badly tailored on her. That's why she couldn't make it in H'wood. Her biggest break is 1 line in Bad bosses but I'm guessing she invited the cast to her wedding and they didn't come because they didn't remember her.. With all of the black and navy blue she wears she wants to be the sexy royal, like Diana, but she just shows up as the tacky wannabe royal who gives the pat on the back to insinuate that there is cordial relationship, not.

* The sum does not include custom pieces like bespoke Givenchy wedding dress
* In second place was Crown Princess Mary of Denmark then Countess of Wessex
The eye-watering sum - £406,662.55 ($508,258.25) - is revealed in new research published this week by royal fashion experts UFO No More, who have totted up the amount spent by British royals and their European neighbours on clothing and accessories over the past 12 months.

Long list of clothing items and cost for both Waity and Meghan's part of the article. I think that an explanation form KP or Charles is needed because why's she allowed this extravagance where's Waitys not? Why's er clothing paid for privately if we're to believe that this trollop's Harry's wife? Why's her wardrobe cost hanled differently from Waity's?

Who wore it best? Kylie Jenner steps out in the SAME $645 white tuxedo dress Meghan Markle wore in October
    While on the royal tour to Australia and New Zealand in October, the Duchess of Sussex, 37, wore a white tuxedo dress by Maggie Marilyn
    Kylie, 21, stepped out on New Year's Eve wearing the same mini by the New Zealand-based label
    Both women made alterations to the $645 design; Meghan removed the sleeves while Kylie shorted the hem
    The twinning moment comes just after Kim Kardashian revealed that she wants to become friends with Meghan
They are unlikely style twins but Kylie Jenner and the Duchess of Sussex have stepped out in the same garment.
During her visit to Wellington, New Zealand, as part of the royal tour in October, Meghan wore a short white tuxedo dress by local sustainability-focused designer Maggie Marilyn.
In order to ensure that the dress was as best suited to her style as possible, the former Suits star actually had the polished dress altered, removing the sleeves from the piece.
The cotton-twill 'Leap of Faith' Blazer Dress originally retailed for $645  :-X at Bergdorf Goodman, however it has since been reduced to just $316 in the sale.

Am I the only one that sees that the two dresses are not the same? The length is different, one is sleeveless and the other one is with sleeves, one is a-line while the other is pouf.

What are we comparing? The whiteness of the color...? Cause that and the buttoning up front is pretty much the only two things that are 'the same'.

Can Meghan Markle save Posh's troubled empire? How the Duchess could help turn around the fortunes Victoria Beckham's fashion chain after adopting her clothes, friends and lifestyle
    Meghan wore £6,000 worth of Posh's designs on Christmas at Sandringham
    It was a sign of solidarity after Victoria Becham's label posted losses of £10m
    Pair became good friends through their men and sources say Meghan confided in her about pregnancy
So there was something deeply loyal, and very timely, about the outfit chosen on Christmas Day by the Duchess of Sussex.
Attending the Royal Family’s traditional Sandringham church service, Meghan Markle stepped out head-to-toe in £6,000-worth of Victoria Beckham designs: an elegant calf-length navy dress costing £1,250, with matching £2,250 coat, £1,250 boots and £1,550 handbag.
But another signal of support was being very loudly sent to her friend and country neighbour, Victoria.
And, with the news last week that Posh’s fashion empire is again in the red — posting losses of more than £10 million at Companies House — plus the report that husband David is no longer prepared to pump money into his wife’s venture, the Duchess’s decision to show her backing surely speaks volumes about their friendship.  :tehe:
Victoria has previously said that she never gives freebies, because she cannot afford it, so we must assume that Meghan paid for the dress — and for all her subsequent purchases.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6559169/Can-Meghan-Markle-save-Poshs-troubled-fashion-empire-Duchess-wears-dress-act-solidarity.html
Meghan looked nasty with what looked like dandruff on her coat.  :-X  She's a brand killer and just because she gets the designer's press, she shouldn't be used as an unofficial brand ambassador. VB sent the whole lot over as a loan, imo, henced her dressed from head to toe in the line; big mistake on VB's part as this should be the year she closes the business.
Sadly, VB is going down the drain. I like her designs but felel that she went way too posh. She would've done a lot better with a line targeted towards the M&S in the UK, Macys shopper in the US.

First, Victoria needs to worry more about saving her marriage instead of saving her joke of a fashion brand; second, it's not Meg's job to save a fashion brand, or do philanthropy for fashion designers. It is her JOB to do something good for her adopted country. Not do good for a spoiled WAG. Third, Meg is not a fashion icon and will not be able to provide any 'backing' at all.

Senior royals just play at military work. They wear these medals (even Edward who had a very very brief tenure in the military) and I find it a disgrace. Of course Harry would be treated differently than the others .

Harry has been keeping quiet, the DM appears to be the one on the warpath these days.

Even if she is the media's punching bag, she's near 40. At this age, you shouldn't be dumb enough to ignore that you're a prime target for media scrutiny and do the smart thing and go the opposite direction. So, instead of buying $4,000 Fendi briefcases that you're never going to use (I mean come on! How absolutely stupid and nothing but conspicuous spending. For a lawyer or professor, or anyone else with an actual professional job, it's fine. I think a luxury spin on the practical is A-okay in that case. For Murky that was spending to be spending.) you don't go that direction at all. You stick to buying a mix of high and low end. Or if you're going to buy all high end, you buy different separate pieces that can be mixed and matched and used for years to come. You don't walk right into the trap like a fool.

I agree. She does have some nice pieces and I think it was also a plus that her main line was made in country but yes the price points should've never been so high and she should've been lowered them. Her Victoria, Victoria collection should've been more on par with Macy's in terms of pricing and her main Victoria Beckham line could still be more expensive but more on par with the current Victoria, Victoria Beckham prices, which are around $350-900.00, depending on the piece. She's basically a mix of Roland Mouret and MKA's The Row to me. She could've had a real niche in making clothes like their's for cheaper prices.

I think Victoria would be raking in more dough if she in fact would have just sold to the mass market and not tried to become like haute couture or like some kind of grande dame of fashion. She is just not that good and even the best had to struggle to see their vision come true. Sparkles just isn't at all impressive and all the best clothes in the world won't change that.

Post by: YooperModerator on January 06, 2019, 01:38:00 am
It’s clear to me that Sparkles’ fashion choices are a direct reflection of the influence of trendy “luxury” brands with which she has drooled over in places like LA.  There’s nothing worldly or mature in her accessories.  Nothing uber savvy like Swaine Adeney in leather goods which also promotes British brands and would show her as very very serious.

It’s all showy and “brand of the year”, nothing lasting in her wardrobe yet.

Yeah totally useless and only for show, if you're a professional and need a briefcase and will have plenty of use for it, then great, but what does Murky need a briefcase for? Must try to make that credit card smoke from use!

The quote from the pic says it all:

Way too trendy and fashion-y. It spells vulgar. She doesn't even look good or interesting in whatever this trendy/modern style is that she's trying to "nail".
Then again, she might look even worse in traditionally elegant/classic attire of the KM type. 

It's not the clothes, the style or anything.

It's her.

I hope all the ladies visited by Meghan find work. It's embarrassing that Meghan turned up to visit this charity and these ladies who are really struggling and wanting to work wearing clothes worth thousands of pounds worth of clothes. I used to like Harry and the royals but this is getting embarrassing.

As I wrote elsewhere, I swear it looks like she carries in a hiatal hernia, not in her uterus.

I had read speculations about her not really being pregnant but I thought they were idiotic.

I'm starting to believe it's true.

Plus the speed with which she got pregnant on command at the age of 36, despite having managed to have none during her best reproductive years, the uncontrolled need to touch her belly, as if wanting to make sure it stays in place.

She is SO not pregnant. I never thought I would say that.
That's just not a baby bump. Never saw one like this.

The REAL cost of being royal! How Meghan spent £431k on new clothing in the year she became a duchess - compared to Kate's £55k in 2011
Royal fashion experts at UFO No More compared clothing worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Sussex and Sweden's Duchess of Värmland (Princess Sofia) from 1 January to December 31 in the year in which they wed their princes.

The study found that Sofia debuted 86 new items, Kate 87 and Meghan 248 in the year they tied the knot, in instances where the retail price could be identified. 

According to the study, the three women - all of whom had spring weddings - wore €61,603 (£55,461.80), €479,048 (£431,291.70) and €53,913 (£48,538.41) worth of new clothing respectively, totalling £535,291.91.

Researchers also calculated the average price per piece, working out at €580 (£521.86) for Sofia, €648 (£582.96) for Kate and €1,871 (£1,683.22) for Meghan.

Cost of new clothing

Sofia: €53,913 (£48,538.41)

Kate: €61,603 (£55,461.80)

Meghan: €479,048 (£431,291.70)

To keep the figures as accurate as possible, custom pieces where the price tag is unknown - such as Meghan's Givenchy wedding dress - have not been included.

The Prince of Wales is understood to cover the costs of Kate and Meghan's wardrobes for ‘work-related’ engagements through his official household budget, funded by the Duchy of Cornwall.

Kensington Palace are famously tight-lipped when it comes to royal wardrobes, but have previously told MailOnline that, as with Sweden's royal family, clothing is paid for 'privately'.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6581527/Cost-Kate-Middleton-Meghans-royal-wardrobes-revealed.html

Why recycle the story if it’s not going to be explained why Meghan’s wardrobe cost so much and why KP is so tight lipped about it. The monarchy’s accused of costing the taxpayers too much money but it’s ok for Meghan to spend money on her wardrobe as she has an unlimited budget.  ???

Post by: Kuei Fei on January 11, 2019, 06:28:53 pm
I think Kate didn't spend as much because she wasn't given all that much to spend in the first place. Charles is notoriously tight and since Kate barely worked, Kate barely got any new clothes out of royal coffers. No work, no new things. Meg is working and as much as I dislike her, she has been doing a full schedule since the day she was engaged. She has been contributing and being a team player and clearly isn't having her entire family along for the ride. I don't like what she's doing to her family, but she is drawing a very clear line and not expecting the palace to invite her family on state events.

I only look at the numbers. Huge difference. If DM adds the cost of 100 identical black stilletos, the trashy but expensive jewelries, the handbags and the gloves she never puts on .. there will be a closer estimation. Then, the cost of security is disclosed once a year from what I remember... My guestimate is between 2 and 3 mil.

Megan is not a real working royal. She cherry picks garden parties, galas and ballroom dancing. Remember - on the NZ market she stayed only 6 min among plebs. That's ... telling.

^Agreed.  I look at the numbers, too.  The spending is out of control at a time when conspicuous and maybe borderline compulsive purchasing or opulence bears no resemblance to the baloney she sells about being all about hard work and feet on the street reality chick.

Her “work” image is smoke and mirrors too.  She sticks around for the minimum time just to look busy. It ain’t work and it isn’t anything special or different than any other younger royals.

For the life of me I will never understand how people can call whatever these people are dressing up for - "work".
If they want to say they "represent HM for X,Y,Z charity or event" - sure, why not.
But that's not work.
And they sure don't need to spend that much money on clothing to do all that "work".
What are they representing her MJ for? Fashion design? Are they modeling her clothes or something?
Why is it that they need to be so expensively dressed when they "work"?

 Or is their ACTUAL job to remind the public of who they are and how nobody else could afford to dress like they do while ...uh-mm..."working" ?

What a charade.

Meghan's nothing but a ceebrty playing a being royal. She thinks that it's about the jet setting, expensive clothes, exclusive residences, posh friends, and going to places greeting fans and meeting stars and watching other people work and call that work for yourself. She's really done nothing but merch expensive clothes and accessories and watched other people perform and she's given speeches that are filled with lies and platitudes. What she's doing isn't work and doesn't require a wardrobe that's near million pounds.
Royal fashion BLUNDER: Why Meghan Markle's wedding dress was a 'POOR FIT'
The email, from listener Anna, said: “In an early episode you discussed Meghan Markle’s wedding dress and how she had not seen it more than once before her wedding day.
“That was regarding her veil, not her dress.
“I point this out as I did not care for her dress at all, the biggest reason being the poor fit, and this something that should have been corrected given that she did have a number of fittings.
Ms Menza commented: “The tough one about this is, if she had seen the dress multiple times and had multiple fittings, it should have fit better.
https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/1070939/meghan-markle-news-royal-fashion-blunder-wedding-dress-poor-fit-spt

The bride usually has to kick the dress forward as t usually cover the shoes, but Meghan's dress is ill fitting that it's too short at the front, so her shoes are visible. Clearyl she didn't have multiple fittings. Remember her reaction in the Queen of the World documentry where she said it's the first time she's seen it, or some such.

Yes, it's the same shade of purple I think. And a crimson coat. No black! Great for a cold winter's day up north. And the colours of one of the charities they will be visiting, Tomorrow's Women Wirral.

The Sussexes will be going to see the statue in Birkenhead commemorating the life and death of one of Britain's greatest war poets, Wilfred Owen, who wrote some wonderful poetry between 1917-18 but was killed just one week before Armistice Day in November 1918. A tragic loss of life all round. No wonder the statue is called 'Exhaustion'.

Then it's talking to vets and others, a walkabout and visiting and visiting vulnerable women and youth. A full programme for Harry and Meghan. .

I'm torn between the unoriginality of the outfit colors - copying your dead mil clothing is ... disgusting. The other thing that is a thorn in my eye is - M is literally the only pregnant woman in the world who got a padded behind with the pregnancy and zero change in the flat chest.

I doubt that anyone could truly capture Diana’s style.  Beautiful fabrics, gorgeous colors, and perfect tailoring.  She had very few “misses” over the years. 

Even her casual clothes fit her beautifully.  I remember especially those bright pink checked ankle pants and matching bright pink sweater, and the “black sheep” sweater she wore very early on.  Impeccable taste!

^^^ I agree, she does a very poor job in copying Diana, just like she's a failure in everything else she starts or touches. The imitation is done imo to play the "like Diana" card but Kate beat her to it with the sun article that unlike Diana, brf is firmly behind her in not inviting the delusionals to her birthday party. 

So far, Megan and her poor taste and her PR games are very obvious. I mean, I can predict with certainty that the beginning to middle of February Sam will have an article, then Tom will say something, then M will do something outrageous fashionwise so that there are articles written about her, and if BRF dares to not put up with this  :ick: PR cycle, Doria will go to walk a stranger's dogs, to the yoga place she quit, then started again, then quit again, then started again ... If all else fails, Serena Williams will send a congratulatory tweet .. selling out whatever is left of her dignity and brand.

I like her style even though is not my type of style.Its more of a business women, skinny, tall would wear.Im a kindergarten teacher so no lol

Still i would say i liked almost all her outifts so far.Like her style more than kate to be honest as i think she tends to look more elegant and kate is always the same conservative, prempy style.Now i have to say that i dont find it much wearable.As said is more of a business women style not for the normal everyday style most womens would wear.Still im glad its her style and shes keeping it as she wants and enjoys.Independent on what people think of it.

Personally i liked her outfit.The colour dont combine in theory but in reality she looked great.I loved everything BUT the purse.Horrible purse and colour.She looks happy and radiante.Good look for her :thumbsup:

As for her hair i think people exagerate on this.Its her hair and if she likes to wear this way let it be.People keep saying is a mess is not a mess is a normal way many women wear theyre hair thee days.I *despise* how princess Victoria from sweden wears her hair but thats how she likes to wear it, what to do?Id say leave the women wear her hair as she likes it and feels confortable with.She has not much hair is very thin and straightened theres not much she can do with it anyway so seriouslly let it be.The queen has the same hair her entire life and noone complains, princess anne wear her hair the same way, no complaisn, sophie the same, as many others why cant meghan where her hair this way?Seriouslly.

To me, it’s not so much the “messy bun” hairstyle itself, but rather why someone who COULD have a hairdresser fix her hair every time she has an engagement outside the palace CHOOSES to put it up in a “messy bun” like I do on my way to and from hot yoga class! 

Is she lazy, perhaps?  Delusional in thinking she’s doing a good job?  Or just doesn’t care?

Diana’s hairdresser fixed her hair prior to every engagement.  And she was always immaculately groomed.

I am starting to think she could not even do the "not-cheap-and-tacky" style  because this is who she is.
So she's authentic, in her own way. Unruly, greasy hair, short and tight skirts, trendy purse with chains, plastic shoes (the other day), lose, hanging clothing that never looks put together and dignified (bespoke), etc.   

This is the call of her genes. 
 
Do you even see her in elegant, dignified type of clothing?
She tried a few times right after the wedding and she looked awkward. Like a servant in fancy clothes.

People can't change who the are. When they try, they look like frauds.

The lack of stockings and wearing slingbacks (in January) highlights the dry skin on her feet.  Lotion?  Pedicure? Stockings?  Get a clue, woman!!

Its all about showing the bump.  8)

Has she worn any maternity clothing that is not body-con? I don't think so. She is also American and a lot of American women wear body con maternity dresses/tops.

She even wore the coat inside? Why didn't she take it off like she did at Smart Works? It seems unprofessional to me to keep a coat on inside, why doesn't she wear a short jacket/blazer? The dress is already body-con so why try and hide behind a coat?

Is that bracelet of Diana's real or cosmetic? Maybe only the gold bangle is real but not the dark stones?  :dontknow:

Call me crazy, but I wouldn't be wearing a deceased woman's jewelry that I never met (and they only do it because its Diana). Kate had no choice with the engagement ring, and that's probably the only thing I would accept to wear of a deceased mother in law that I never met. Why won't the Queen, who is alive, let her borrow some bling?  :dontknow:

Did this event need to be black tie, evening gown? I though cocktail dress  :sly:

Open sandals on her feet and painted toe nails. The lack of pantyhose always is a  bignono

Wearing sandals and having black nail polish on her toes does not demonstrate 'I'm in the royal family!'

The Roland Mouret dress is just okay. Nothing spectacular in my book. She's way overdressed for the occasion and yet not standing out enough to warrant compliment. She's just looks anticlimactically overdressed. The makeup looks bad.

This is my gripe about either of these two ninnies wearing Diana's jewelry (minus Diana's engagement ring, which Kate didn't have a choice in having but that I do find to be creepy and stupid of William to have given her knowing that his parents marriage was a complete failure). It's not a sweet sentiment, it's just for the association that Diana's name brings. Tacky and trifling.

Secrets of the Markle Sparkle: As Meghan stuns in £3,400 dress, how a BFF designer turned the duchess into global style icon (helped by Harry's £30m fortune and Charles' generous allowance)
* Meghan wore a wardrobe of new clothing worth around £400k last year alone
* Duchess sparkled in a £3,400 floor-length dress by Roland Mouret last night
* Royal wardrobe has been masterminded by 'unofficial stylist' Canadian Jessica Mulroney, who meticulously plans her outfits before public engagements
* She reportedly has a second, smaller team of stylists at Kensington Palace
* Meghan wears some clothes reportedly 'gifted' to her before she became royal
* Some of her wardrobe for official public engagements is believed to have be paid for through the Prince of Wales' private estate, the Duchy of Cornwall
* Her husband the Duke of Sussex has an estimated fortune of around £30 million
From couture gowns to diamond earrings and countless pairs of designer heels, the Duchess of Sussex rarely wears an outfit more than once.
But a lot of hard work – and money – goes into becoming a royal style icon; in 2018 alone, the Duchess, wore new clothing worth an estimated  £400,000.  :o
Now that she's a duchess, like all British royals, she is prevented by royal protocol from accepting freebies.
Decorative work inside the cottage is expected to be paid for by Harry and Meghan, whose wedding cost the public purse £3.4million.  
Kensington Palace declined to comment on their living costs, but said that clothing is paid for 'privately'.  :bored:
While there is no doubt as to Mulroney's influence on Meghan's style, the duchess is also believed to have a small team of staff helping to coordinate her closet from Kensington Palace.
Dishaw told MailOnline she has personally seen copies of itemised invoices from designers and high street stores addressed to the Palace - and she believes outfits are planned 'three to four months in advance' for high-profile royal events.
It is thought that the Palace team are tasked with sourcing pieces from smaller British brands, while Mulroney is given free reign with US and Canadian labels.

Why’s this so called royal being allowed this extravagance unlike the real royal wives? Why do these articles get published only to have silence from the palace and the boring excuse that the clothes are paid for privately. When will the public get real answers? This trick’s a narc celebrity with demanding taste by no class and an odd body shape to carry off the clothes.

* Most recently wore a rumpled Oscar de la Renta coat to Smart Works 
* Former creative director of Mulberry Scott Henshall says Meghan should opt for wrinkle-free fabrics

Meghan Mar-clone! Meet the royal superfan who dedicates her spare time to recreating the Duchess of Sussex's most stylish looks - and says she wants to be just 'like her as a human being'

'I guess is not easy for her [Meghan] to be there in the royal family with all the prejudices in society and classy people who maybe would only accept royals before.

'Right now, we see her living a great life, but we don't know all the things she has had to change or accept to get that. I admire her strength and her kindness with people and that she is true to herself through it all.'

'I was so happy for them when they announced the news and I'm quite sure it was their decision to have the baby regardless of what others would say about it,' said Linda.

'I'd like to express that a woman is free to express whatever she wants and to be a successful and happy woman no matter what people say.'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6607321/Meghan-Markle-superfan-dedicates-spare-time-copying-Duchess-Sussexs-fashion.html

One the one hand sad that she’s emulating her fashion but harmless. The problem with society today is that people just want to do their own thing like Meghan dismissing the royal dress code and going for these ill fitting expensive items.
Charles is in no way just paying for the wardrobe. I expect that the business that Jessica set up has a lot to do with it as she supplies Meghan with the items.

THE FASHION FAIRY GODMOTHER

Meghan's close friend and 'unofficial' stylist Jessica Mulroney (she is not on the palace payroll but 'advises' the duchess on what to wear and joined her on her recent Australian tour) is the mastermind behind some of her most iconic looks.

It is thanks to Montréal-born Mulroney that the duchess regularly wears pieces from little-known Canadian designers, from Sentaler to Aritzia.

Many of these labels are closely linked to Mulroney's work as a brand ambassador, such as House of Nonie and Judith & Charles - some of whom have publicly thanked the stylist for her help in securing the ultimate royal stamp of approval and subsequent sales boom.

One such label is luxury jewellery brand Birks, who previously hired the fashion guru as their 'style expert' and were introduced to Meghan by Mulroney herself.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6603375/Secrets-Markle-sparkle-Meghan-stuns-3-4k-dress-Duchess-turned-global-style-icon.html
Now she’s subjected to US income tax laws as she’s on American tv; Good Morning America. She’s linked to Meghan’s tax issues as I’m sure that the IRS is interested in her ability to have a million dollar wardrobe without an income and the cost going against how the royal family usually operates.  :cookie:

How does Meghan Markle pay for her clothes? Prince Harry’s yearly private income revealed
Meghan Markle’s wardrobe cost a whopping £400k on her wardrobe in 2018.
Meghan most expensive clothes include a £116,300 bracelet.
Meghan wore the Reflection de Cartier Bracelet for her wedding and to the Queen’s Christmas lunch this year.
So how is Meghan’s able to afford such gorgeous garments.
Meghan Markle is no longer allowed to accept gifts such as jewellery and clothes as a working royal.
However, she does have a £3.8 million fortune from her former-acting career, and may pay for clothes out of this.
The royals have private estates, too.
Forbes reported that Prince Harry receives £321,313 per year in dividends from investment profits from his Princess Diana’s estate, and has done so since he was 25.
The Mail Reports that Harry also inherited a sum of £10 million in a trust from his mother.
Harry was also left around £7 million from the Queen Mother.
https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/style/1074200/meghan-markle-prince-harry-latest-dress-clothes-money-salary
Now it’s Harry paying for her disgustingly expensive attire? Why are these articles coming out but still remain confusing as to why she has such an expensive wardrobe and why it’s being paid for.

https://skippyisheretostay.tumblr.com/post/182177539538/cambridge-colonial

The “back to the Tig” reference might be her setting it back up again as she knows she’s on her way out and would need income and something to be in charge of. I think that the Tig would get shut down just like her instagram account that she had to play Harry with.

Women like Meghan have been trying to snag onto Harry for years so that they could use the association to make money off of them just like Meghan’s done since day one. This has to be part of why Meghan’s allowed to do as she pleases as she’s going to make it hard for others to follow because this really should be an operation to have opppertunist like her stopped.

It's not a matter of right or wrong. I could be right.It is opinion and only they know how they feel. I think that it is telling that she spends time at Raymill away from him. Charles "spoiled" Camilla when both were married to others. It was very telling that he did not marry her when he first met her. He told his biographer he was not ready to marry her when he met her. And I doubt would have chosen her to have his legitimate heirs. That does not scream great love to me. The Duke of Windsor did not try to have his cake and eat it too like Charles did. He even wrote in his biography that he would not marry the "suitable person" to have his heirs because he knew he could not be faithful to her. Charles OTOH got to marry the mistress and keep his place in line of succession.

Harry did not bring baggage into his marriage and did not have someone on the side he preferred to his bride. If it had not been for Charles marrying Camilla, I doubt Harry and Meghan would have been able to marry. The bar was lowered.

Her obvious merchandising's now front and centre. Narc's like Mghan and Jessica get so brazen that they end ruining their own selves. Jessica showing up in London and posting selfies and make it known she's in London seems to me that she and Meghan feel confident that nothing will happen to their business partnership and vapid friendship as Harry's backing everything that Meghan does. To me it's an obvious trap that both have walked into and won' get out without being ruined.  :cookie: 

Paying a visit to Meghan? Duchess' best friend and unofficial stylist Jessica Mulroney shares a selfie at a VERY swanky Mayfair restaurant - wearing one of the royal's favourite fashion labels
    Jessica, 38, shared a photo of herself in Mayfair's Park Chinois last night
    She was wearing a blazer by Soia & Kyo - a label also loved by Meghan Markle, 37
    It's the first time Jessica's appeared in the UK since the royal wedding in May
    Make-up artist Daniel Martin came for tea at Kensington Palace four days ago
The fashion stylist, who met former actress Meghan, 37, on the set of Suits, is believed to have flown in to give the royal style advice on previous occasions but usually keeps her visits low-key.  
Posing in the bathroom of the plush Park Chinois Chinese restaurant in Mayfair, Jessica wore a tailored black jacket, from Soia & Kyo - a label Meghan's also been spotted in.
Jessica didn't reveal why she had made the trip to London although she'll no doubt be paying Meghan a visit at Kensington Palace.  :tehe: you men Soho House
She's typically stuck to American and Canadian brands for her royal wardrobe, rather than championing British labels.

I knew she was borrowing.  :thumbsdown:

We see she is borrowing with jewelry, and we can be sure with clothing as well. Man, is she really hammering her own coffin.  :shy: Absolutely no respect for the traditions of the RF and she wonders why there is so much criticism towards her.  :dontknow:

This is what Meghan meant when she said she wanted to modernize the RF. She wants to turn it into glitzy, tacky display of celebrityhood. Everything she does is aimed at self-promotion as well as feeding her desire for attention and status. All of her actions, past and present, show us for who she really is, and it's not a pretty picture. Only Harry and RF are too dim to see through Meghan's transparency.

she really can¿t differentiate between Hollywood and Royalty, can she?

Borrowing jewellery from a shop, how tacky. A member of the Royal Family has an extraordinary amount of jewels at their disposal, none of them should ever borrow jewellery from any one except the Queens collection. This is crass celebrity and has no place in the British Royal Family.

Aria1, Devon, United Kingdom, 11 hours ago
They look like something you'd see in Claire's Accessories but then more is perfect for her because she seems to want to flaunt her unearned excesses in the hard up UK. She's like a kid in a sweet shop and it's vulgar, borrowed or not.

Blind Item #13
Our favorite alliterate actress turned celebrity is accepting money from designers to wear certain clothes and products. She doesn't care at all that it is against protocol. She is cashing in.

https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2019/01/blind-item-13_29.html?m=1

The comments are priceless. Here's a few:

Aquagirl12:35 PM
It’s not illegal but it’s definitely against protocol since the RF cannot show favoritism. Also, Charles pays for her clothes so if she’s accepting $ from the designer and Charles is paying for the clothes she’s double dipping. Will be interesting what she declares on her US taxes. Hopes she gets audited.

Nutty_Flavor12:32 PM
Both she and Harry are reportedly having money problems.

This blind is probably based on the article out today confirming that the $500,000 diamond earrings she wore to an event (in a desperately poor country) were borrowed from a Hong Kong jeweler. She had acknowledged at the time that they were borrowed, but let everyone assume they were borrowed from the Queen. The jeweler presumably paid her to wear them.

The idea that she was "merching" has been much discussed, but this is the first specific acknowledgment to hit the press.

"Merching" is why she often wears summer clothes in the winter; gotta push next season's line.

Aquagirl12:48 PM
Yes, a $500,000 pair of earrings in Fiji. Talk about tone deaf.

Seems to be getting more & more brazen. She had her make-up artist posting on insta last week. They had tea, and the cups & plates were from Soho House. Next thing you know, everything is available for sale on Meghan’s Mirror. I’m assuming her BFF runs that site. Immediately after she wears something it’s available for sale

- There's one more, very interesting comment but I'll post it in the MOB cause it's too juicy.

THAT'S why she has a new hairdo! Meghan ditches her messy bun for a sleek topknot - and stylists claim it's to avoid washing her 'brittle' locks too much during pregnancy
* The Duchess looked chic as she slicked her hair back in a tight top knot bun
* It makes a change from her usual messy bun style which she has donned before
* Expert hair stylists have claimed the style prevents the need to wash hair
* It comes during a week of busy engagements for the pregnant mum-to-be
* The Duchess was visiting City, University of London, in Islington today
Meghan's new hair style coincides with a busy week of royal engagements, and an expert has revealed the hairdo is the perfect way for the Duchess not to have to wash her hair too often - which is a bonus if her locks have become weaker during pregnancy.
'Not only do updos give you extra time in bed in the morning, but they also prevent your hair from over styling,' explained celebrity stylist James Johnson.

She's never worn her hair in a more natural state as she did today because she knew she's meet kids from the commonwealth who like her because they see themselves in her; a woman of colour.  :bored: She's a low life convinving cow playing games like this.

If feet swell during pregnancy (which hers don't, apparently and magically) you don't get sky high stillettoes a size larger.
You simply wear more sensible shoes (yes, those can be made to look stylish too). The last thing you want to do is to trip while walking in those roomy boats.

I'm just curios. A winter coat but summer shoes. In the end of January... Just because M does not have motherly instinct, does she assume that the rest of the women in the world are negligent towards their jnborn babies like her?

What pregnant woman walks in summer stilletos and barefeet when there's a baby to protect, carry and deliver.

The airy summer skirt didn't help either. Touching the belly won't help keep and carry the baby if you're dressing like it's the middle of summer during the winter.

Meghan's little white shirt! How a crisp blouse has become the Duchess of Sussex's go-to for high-profile appearances - and she's now finding a new way to style it while pregnant

This article is a PR stunt therefore I will reply accordingly. Wearing the shirt the way Megan did yesterday for evening wear with a full length skirt and evening stilettos is not done at all even if the shirt is made of silk. That kind of shirt is worn with a tuxedo suit or with a pencil skirt together with a blazer. Theamed like it was yesterday it was crass and scruffy looking especially with the sleeves all rounced up as if she¿s going to do some gardening. The look is bizarre and whoever is responsible for it should be ashamed as he/she does not have a decent dress sense. Givenchy should stay away from this as if it really was their ensemble she was wearing then their style has dropped way down to nil

She looked a complet mess.
Wait staff.

First, that outfit was an overall ugly fest.

Second, a white shirt is no amazing style move. It's a darn white shirt. Everyone owns a few white shirts.
Sure, it's a classic, it goes with everything and can give women a bit of edge. But it's no big deal.

However, dressing the way she did for this event, with a white shirt tucked inside a skirt that is made for anything BUT to climb all over a pregnant stomach - that was just super bad.

The fawning instinct never fails in humans, apparently. She could put a kitchen apron on her and the next day you'd see reports about the amazing "style" of MM.

It's D**n white shirt. We get it. She has "style" because she donned a white shirt.

Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney steps out in New York with a $3,000 Gucci bag and a VERY plump pout - after the royal's 'close friends' gave intimate interview about her life with Harry and her rift with her dad
Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney cut a stylish figure in a wool coat with a luxe fur collar as she braved the morning rain in New York City on Friday.
The 38-year-old Canadian stylist appeared to be showing off a plumper pout as she pursed her lips while making her way through the city streets following her appearance on Good Morning America. 
The busy stylist may have been waiting for a text or phone call, as she opted to carry her cellphone in her hand, with the screen facing her body.

^ she really did. The only positive for me was her hairstyle.

Seeing double duchess! Meghan steps out in a Calvin Klein dress that looks VERY similar to the H&M number she wore last month - but it costs more than 60 TIMES as much
Meghan, 37, wore a cream dress under a cream coat for the outing - an ensemble that looked strikingly similar to the one she wore for a visit to the Mayhew animal welfare charity in London last month.

However while she dressed her baby bump in a £24.99 ($32) H&M maternity dress for the event in January, her dress tonight was custom Calvin Klein - and cost more than 60 times as much.

The £1,495 ($1,900) dress is believed to be a shorter version of a maxi dress released as part of the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Resort 2019 collection, and features a turtleneck design.

I didn't care for any of it.  One of her greasiest looks yet.  Too tight dress that's revealing more than I care to see and the jacket collar popped up is just too forced and it didn't stay put.  Unless the coat is made with a standing collar, knock it off. 

What's with the filler in her lips?  Am I seeing that right?  Oh, it's all so wasteful, directionless and phony.

Could be overdrawing with liner and lip plumping gloss. Doesn't look like filler to me. In some lights though, she does seem to have a complexion unevenness problem.

Post by: windsor2 on February 13, 2019, 12:05:31 pm
IMO, her top lip looks fuller that can only be achieved with fillers. She looks like Jessica, her plastic stylist friend.

Kindred sisters who the younger generation love and accept as opposed to traditional women who dress classy and act with class. The vapid celebrity culture is the accepted way and stability and tradition is out the window. This is what I see being taken on by the more Meghan continued behavior and her losing support. The monarchy doesn’t need low life celebrity culture brought into it to have it go with the times.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6704239/Meghan-Kate-opt-different-make-looks-royal-engagement-visits-week.html
IMO, the point of the article’s right in the title; Meghan’s the modern and Waity’s the traditional. For years, the media’s being growning on about the monarchy being staid and needs modernization. Now they’ve got that with Mehgan and all her celebrity ways. Now we have the old traditional Waity being the representative of the old guard, and Meghan being what people think they want the royal family to be, to reflect the current culture and populace of the country. The thing is that there’s no need for a monarchy if it’s just like the celebrity culture where any thing goes and is accepted as the norm such as bringing attention to oneself for pr. Meghan’s makeup is packed on and overdone just like Kim K and her illegal, whilst Waity’s is more less in severity. Meghan looks more pumped with fillers and Botox too just like Kim K. Waity’s work looks more subtle.
Why pay for heavy levels of security if someone like Meghan can be picked up out of Soho House. Make no sense.  
We see Meghan’s pr backfiring so mane there’s something that actually might happen because her presence sure makes the monarchy a complete laughing stock.

Buzz words produced by commenters and journalists don't mean it's the truth. Any solid evidence available that Meghan is disliked by HM and Charles, the man who walked her halfway down the aisle at St Georges, and the woman who took her on an engagement on the Royal train? As a matter of fact it's been only days since a Royal correspondent spoke about the closeness between Charles and Harry since his marriage. And that would include Harry's wife.


Title: Re: Princess Sparkles: The fashion files 2019
Post by: misanthrocrat on February 15, 2019, 04:04:32 am
People should not need buzz-words to form an opinion.
Objectively speaking, KM looks and acts much closer to the "classic, traditional, elegant, princess-like" model than MM.
Not everything is relative or "a matter of opinion".

The fact that not all people find this image to be desirable, that's another story.

Many people today prefer MM's modern look and demeanor and are rubbed the wrong way by traditional appearances and practices, which they may find boring, stifling, ossified, outdated, devoid of personality, snobbish, distant, etc.   

Looking and acting modern is the opposite of looking and acting traditional.
Yet the very concept of "princess" is an EXTREMELY traditional concept. MM cannot act all modern and "chill" yet look more princess-like than KM. By definition, she can't.

MM is the one who is trying to redefine what it means to look and act like a princess, not KM. 
But most people, save her rabid fans who can relate to her, don't buy it. They know a classic princess when they see one. And MM is not IT. 

KM mirrors the image of the classic, demure, restrained, elegant princess way better than MM. By many miles.

MM pulls off better the contemporary look, often associated either with the corporate professional woman or the celebrity culture. 
No matter how much some people love, relate to and appreciate this style because they support the values of the modern world - this ain't the "princess" prototype.

By the time people fight over semantics to the point whether they disagree on whether the animal coming towards them is a dog or a monkey  - communication breaks down and there is no point of exchanging "opinions". Then you just have an insane asylum.

Buzz words are what you're remembered by in the court of public opinion so yes, buzz words matter. A perfectly flattering article is actually getting the message out that M is too modern, opinionated, with difficult character to fit into a family that is traditional. A family that knows loyalty and lifetime commitment. Two things she has never ever subscribed to in her life.

Lots of expensive outfits, lots of gym workouts, lots of restaurants, lots of chi-chi beach vacations, etc. Pretty identical to MM's Tig posts: shallow, materialistic, shameless social ladder climbing antics. And, like MM, not sign of any real friends. Just people she associates with for money and exposure. Also just like MM. The Windsors must be aghast at Harry cavorting about with these tacky people.

^ Posts highly private pictures of her husband and children in their most intimate environment. Feels the need to explain to the world how much in love her and her husband are and how they DON'T put pressures on each other with date nights. Pretends that this is, somehow, information that is important for the entire world to know.  :dontknow:

People see these are the kind of friends MM associates with but she is still, somehow, a refined duchess full of substance, elegance and dignity and NOT narcissistic at all. As if people of substance, elegance and dignity would resist more than 5 minutes flat in the company of THIS type of person.
Memories of how MM was behaving in the exact same way right before Harry (spooning bananas singing me, me, me) are now conveniently fading.
And if they are not, they are no indicators of anything undesirable. Perfectly normal, considering almost everyone is behaving like this now.

^ This is kind of true. Speaking of genetics.  :cookie: The only explanation for why someone like KM would look significantly older than her age. It's not like she had environmental stressors and hardships since...never?. 
She didn't lose any more nights partying than most people today do and I don't think the smoking rumors are true. Her sister also looks much older than her age.
So it's genetics.

MM clearly looks younger, but then again, this is a great advantage of darker skin colors. Many age incredibly well.

“Glossy cheeks?”  Looks more like greasy cheeks to me.  Much prefer Kate’s soft and natural look.

Kate never had a soft and natural look with all that makeup caked on her eyes.

Meghan and Kate both use makeup and neither of them are "soft and natural" in looks.

I’ve never seen Kate use greasy-looking bronzer, Sandy.  That’s what I was referring to.

Markle has looked positively greasy with her overuse of highlighter. Imo the hideous bronzer is the worse offender of the two (highl vs bronzer).

Neither K nor M look natural or soft, esp with their makeup, the fail article on that was laughable, esp calling K with her scouse brows and heavy makeup and perma-tan an "English rose". Compared to Murky she is that, but otherwise? Nope.

New York, new style! How Meghan embraced a VERY different fashion formula during her extravagant baby shower trip, swapping smart dresses and updos for skinny jeans, designer handbags and free-flowing hair
The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex spent five nights in Manhattan, where she was thrown a baby shower by Serena Williams and Jessica Mulroney
* She was spotted on Tuesday in a pair of black jeans, a vintage designer coat, and a $1,340 gray Carolina Herrera handbag
* Meghan later changed into a $3,085 Victoria Beckham coat and a pair of $695 sateen boots from Tamara Mellon
* She also added a $1,000 Stella McCartney chain-handle purse to her outfit
* On Wednesday, she wore leggings and sneakers as she departed for the airport
* She was also seen wearing her hair down and sported a smokey eye at night
* This has been a style shift for the duchess, who favors updos, basic pumps, understated bags and clutches, and light-colored dresses in London
* Meghan has tried to bend royal style codes however, often going without nude tights, and wearing bold, dark nail polish instead of a subtler shade

'It's exhausting being strong': Jessica Mulroney posts a pointed inspirational quote about facing criticism as best friend Meghan faces furious backlash over her $500,000 baby shower trip
* On Thursday morning, the 39-year-old GMA contributor posted a quote about strength that urges the reader to 'keep your capacity for joy' 
* It comes as Meghan is facing criticism for her lavish baby shower trip which reportedly cost half a million dollars
* That cost includes $150,000 spent on the penthouse for the party, as well as a $250,000 round-trip to and from New York on a private jet
* Her friends appear to have footed much of the bill, including the penthouse suite and a private jet home, the latter of which was paid for by Amal Clooney

A baby shower gift? Meghan is spotted wearing a ‘mommy’ necklace made by Tobey Maguire's ex-wife Jennifer Meyer - but the 18-carat gold chain will set you back $850
And eagle-eyed fans quickly spotted a new edition to her casual ensemble, in the form of a delicate 18-carat gold 'mommy' necklace.

It is the first time the pregnant duchess has been seen wearing the piece of jewellery, a sweet tribute to her new status, leading to suggestions it could have been one of her baby shower gifts.

However the handcrafted necklace doesn't come cheap, and retails at an eye-watering $850 (£650), by designer Jennifer Meyer.

The fashion-forward duchess was previously spotted wearing a turquoise drop necklace by Jennifer, worth $750 (£730) as she attended the church service in Sandringham at Christmas.

EXCLUSIVE: GMA staff rebel over Meghan Markle's BFF Jessica Mulroney BANNING them from asking her about Duchess on air or getting a heads up about baby shower – saying she only got her job because of their friendship and not her style savvy
* Meghan Markle's best friend Jessica Mulroney has her bosses at Good Morning America and ABC News furious that she won't talk about the royal on the show
* The 39-year-old was brought on as a fashion contributor in October, after joining Meghan and Prince Harry on a royal tour of Australia, New Zealand and Fiji
Executives hoped Mulroney would help the network gain access to Meghan, but in her agreement was the condition that she couldn't be asked about Meghan
* A source said: 'We knew this would get us in trouble and it proved true. We had no idea Meghan was in town, but [Mulroney] knew and didn't help us'
* The duchess turned up in New York City for a baby shower co-hosted by Mulroney and Amal Clooney, with Serena Williams and Gayle King in attendance  
* The source added: 'What made things worse was when King discussed it on CBS This Morning, our competitor. Yet we can't book Jessica to talk about it'
* A producer on GMA said: 'Jessica should consider herself lucky to have such a high profile job on GMA. She does not have it because she is talented, she has it because of her connection to Meghan'
But despite Jessica's close ties with the Duchess of Sussex, an executive with ABC News told DailyMail.com that 'when she made her agreement to appear on ABC it was on the condition that we couldn't ask her anything about Meghan Markle.

'Even when she is on set we can't even link her with Meghan.

'Many of us knew this would get us in trouble one day and this week it proved true.

'We had no idea Meghan was in town, but our so called team member knew and didn't help us at all.'

The network executive added: 'What made things worse was when Gayle King showed up at Meghan's baby shower on Wednesday and then discussed it the following day on CBS This Morning, our competitor. Yet we can't book Jessica to talk about it.'

'We get absolutely nothing from Jessica, so we should give her nothing in return.'

A source at ABC denied that Jessica won't talk about Meghan on the show, saying: 'Jessica hasn't refused to talk about Meghan because she hasn't been asked about Meghan.'

They also denied that Jessica had anything in her contract that stated she couldn't be asked about Meghan.  

Producers on Good Morning America are equally as furious with Mulroney for not giving them a heads up about the baby shower.

Producers on Good Morning America are equally as furious with Mulroney for not giving them a heads up about the baby shower.

One said to DailyMail.com: 'Jessica should consider herself very lucky to have such a high profile job on GMA. She does not have it because she is talented, she has it because of her connection to Meghan Markle.'

They continued: 'We used to laugh many years ago when Chelsea Clinton had a deal with NBC and it provided basically no access to her family. However now the joke is on us as we have our own Chelsea in Jessica.

'ABC management have egg on their face. They should fire Jessica immediately as she brings nothing to the show.

'They could easily hire an American stylist like Rachel Zoe to be GMA's fashion contributor. At least Rachel is famous and recognized in America.

'It's just so embarrassing and an absolute joke.'

And despite Mulroney working with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's wife, Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and other high-profile clients, the GMA producer said Mulroney only has her job as a contributing fashion stylist on the show because of her connection to Meghan.

They added: 'We all laughed when she was hired and she said ''hard work does pay off'' – no princess you got your job because of the duchess not because you were a recognized American fashion stylist.'

But a source at ABC denied this claim, and said Jessica was 'hired as a talented stylist and not because of her friends'.

This whole Meghan to Duchess of Sussex thing has literally turned into a ridiculous sideshow in what is essentially an irrelevant royal circus! Twenty-four months ago it was ...Meghan, who? Then a well planned and strategically set up a meeting with Prince Harry changed everything! Meghan is NOT a short-sighted and naive woman...she's a mature woman who knows what she's doing and she knows what she wants. Period. Sadly, IMO the pictures that have been taken of Harry over the past 6 months or so show a man that at times looks bored even defeated to pictures where he looks far, far away while trying to make the best of the situation. Maybe I'm reading a lot into it...time will tell but I can't help but think of the Duchess of Windsor when every time I see pictures of the Duchess of Sussex.

Ohhh burn. Network ain't happy, Jessica. Lets see now if Meghan honors the girl code and tosses Mulroney some bones to keep her job, or if she holds tight to her NDA (you KNOW she must have people sign them) and lets Jessica drown.

If the dress is custom-made, they sure didn't measure it correctly for it to go over her knees which looked inappropriate and it looked tight. The Queen and Camilla wore blazers, and that white blazer Meg wore in Morocco would've looked better instead of that coat.

Meghan's VERY meaningful jewellery collection: Duchess sported £3.4K worth of accessories including her 'mummy' baby shower necklace and ethically sourced rings for a surprise appearance with Harry
But the look didn't come cheap, with the total cost coming in at £3,363 - and that's without her stunning diamond engagement ring and gold wedding band.
Pippa Small Wajiha Bangle, £360 ($470); Pippa Small Omeen Bangle, £160 ($210); Ralph Lauren link bracelet, price unknown; TAI open bracelet, £50 ($65); Pippa Small Rock Crystal Ring, £1,400 ($1,840); Pippa Small Diamond Ring, £695 ($912); Catbird NYC Threadbare Ring, £33.50 ($44); WE Amazon Minga Bracelet, £15 ($20)
Arguably the most personal piece of jewellery on show was the £645 ($800) gold 'mummy' necklace Meghan wore, pictured, which is believed to be a gift from her baby shower
She is often seen wearing several rings, including the delicate £33.50 ($44) Catbird NYC Threadbare Ring which she wore on her thumb yesterday.
The £1,400 Rock Crystal Gold Greek Ring and the 18ct £695 Herkimer Diamond Cup Ring caught the light as Meghan joined her husband in the spotlight.

Meghan's meaningful jewellery collection

^  Well, okay.  Jewelry.. . .but what about the fact that she appeared so unkempt on a public appearance?  It doesn't matter if she wasn't "supposed" to be on stage.  She was in the arena.  In public.  Her hair look uncombed.  Her eyes were wild.  Her jeans were wrinkled.  The same old navy tee shirt . . . She looked awful.   Why don't reporters talk about that?    And this isn't his thread, but Harry looked like something from the dust bin as well.   Nothing royal about them.   :bored:

For a whole day the mommy necklace was bothering me and I couldn't put my finger on it and now I got it.
1. Moms who LOVE their children buy stuff for the kids, not jewelry to commemorate how they'll get the mommy title.
2. That jewelry looks like a perfect candidate for The kid to buy their mom not for the mom to splurge on her vanity.

All in all, that kind of egotistic and narcissistic display of lack of care for a baby should be enough to call social services on such women for the sake of the baby

Meghan's maternity styling trick! Duchess plumps for shorter skirts as she nears the end of her pregnancy - but maintains royal modesty with chic high necklines
    The Duchess of Sussex, 37, opted for an above the knee hemline on visit today
    Meghan, who is eight months pregnant, previously favoured a more midi style
    Celeb stylist Lucas Armitage says high neck dresses becoming wardrobe staple
    Meghan teams her mini dresses with stylish overcoats and high heels
She wasn't shy about showing off her legs before, but Meghan Markle seems to be embracing shorter hemlines more than ever as she approaches the end of her pregnancy.
It's a style departure for Meghan who previously favoured midi length hemlines for public engagements.
While her hemlines are getting shorter, Meghan's necklines are becoming noticeably higher.

At her last event on Women¿s Day, there was nothing at all modest about her look. She chose a short dress to sit facing an audience, crossed her legs so that you can see a huge expanse of upper thigh, and didn¿t wear hosiery. You can tell what kind of bikini wax she gets.

Pipe down dumbo, you're still just an incubator ffs, and in no shape or form a "mother" yet.

Harry is wearing the same clothes to both engagements, why does she need two outfits for ONE day? 8 grand for a maternity coat she¿s worn for mere hours.

Hahaha! "Building a wardrobe".???? Megs spent 36,000 on her engagement dress, which she will never wear again. Kate spent 35,000 her FIRST YEAR of marriage. Megs spent more on ONE dress than Kate in a YEAR. Wardrobe building? Hahahaha. More like buying anything she can before the charade comes to an end. Kate spent 35,000 in a year and Megs spent 1.5 MILLON and there are people defending that as appropriate "wardrobe building". The pro Megs trolls are absolutely funded by Jessica who gets a cut of everything Megs spends back from the designers.

Meghan Markle’s pregnancy wardrobe cost more than $800K — here’s who pays for it
But, according to royal expert Victoria Arbiter, Markle pays nothing — the Royal Family foots the bill. More specifically, the cost falls to Markle’s father-in-law, Prince Charles.  :bored:
The official household budget, part of which is used to pay for clothing, comes from the Duchy of Cornwall estate, said Arbiter. The estate is a private fund from which “Prince Charles takes an official household budget that is [for] the running of the offices of the Cambridges, Sussexes, and indeed, his and Camila’s office.”
Tailoring has become quite common too, according to Arbiter.

“[Clothes] that she was wearing early on, it’s possible she was just buying a slightly larger size to accommodate her growing tummy, in which case many of those clothes will be tailored,” said Arbiter. “They won’t be cast off, never to be worn again.”

Even the outfits Markle has purchased to wear as she reaches full term will likely be re-worn eventually.

“Arbiter wants to make one thing absolutely clear: Royals cannot accept clothing as gifts from designers, “because then they can be billed as walking billboards.”

“Let’s say they have a tour coming up — I’m speaking speculatively here — but Meghan would ask a designer to send over a few selections. Whatever she chooses and whatever she wears, she will pay for. Everything else gets sent back. She would never keep anything that’s just been given as a gift. That would be inappropriate in [her] position,” said Arbiter.

I thought that who pays for Meghan and Kate's on duty wardrobe had been discussed several times on the forum, with Charles's Duchy funding being explained before? It's no secret. He's been paying a generous annual allowance to the Cambridges, incorporating Kate's clothing since 2011, and to the Sussexes as a couple (incorporating Meghan's) since May 2018.

Even if he pays out of his pocket - the amount Megan spends on clothes is insane. What's crazier is that none of the designer clothes looks good on her. Surely it must not be every designer in the world's fault that even the black wigs don't look good on her.

^^^ Oh, my, cocaine necklace. Oh, my.  lol
I am not sure if she called the press. She didn't do her eyebrows, looks like she just put on a coat that was given to her and probably still smells of mothballs from wherever it was dusting for ages.
I suspect Andrew messaged the media to get a good picture of the not so glam and not so merching duchess cause the way she looks on pictures I'd suspect that she didn't have time or willingness to shower and brush her teeth ... things we all do before we comb our hair and put on make up. My guess is - if she skipped steps 3 and 4, then surely there's something wrong with steps 1 and 2. Probably the cocaine necklace spoke to her the night before ... just speculating, of course.

Gucci pays Gucci is worn. That's her mantra. She got the man, she doesn't have to pretend to be environmentally friendly any more.

Is it just me who thinks the only reason she wanted to go to New Zealand House was so she could get some new Gucci?

Unbelievable how she’s been photographed so many times flipping the finger!  Nothing ladylike about this one!  Harry, what have you done?  You would have been better off staying single.  Nobody needed you to produce an heir and a spare.

I wonder if she’s being paid for this.

Making pregnancy look good! Meghan's ten best maternity looks
And while she's still got a few weeks to go until she welcomes the newest addition to the Royal family (by the way we are beyond excited) we've rounded up her ten best maternity looks so far, with the help of Femail's Fashion Finder Editor and resident Meghan style expert, Caroline Parr.

*Meghan Markle is in no way associated with Matalan.  :bored:

And so what? Another article pointing out the obviously over spending and operating outside all royal behavior.  :bored:

Meghan's £500K maternity wardrobe: How the Duchess accessorised her blooming bump with sparkling jewels and designer gowns totalling more than half a MILLION (and one outfit alone cost £23K)
* Meghan's maternity wardrobe estimated to have cost over half a million pounds
* Seven times more than The Duchess of Cambridge spent during her pregnancy 
* The royal's expensive taste includes glittering jewelry and designer dresses
And the Duchess of Sussex, 37, has certainly made sure her bump was well dressed throughout her first pregnancy, with her maternity outfits totting up to an eye-watering £514,000 ($675,000).
Researchers from fashion comparison website lovethesales.com totted up the cost of 75 outfits Meghan has worn between early in her pregnancy in August to her final engagement before maternity leave at Westminster Abbey last week.

The calculations include estimates for some of the bespoke creations she has worn over recent months but not all, meaning the actual value could be much higher.

Items not estimated include the black one shoulder gown she wore to the British Fashion Awards or the green Erdem coat she wore for a visit to Canada House last week.

This is half a mil in 7 months for maternity clothes, another half a mil for a baby shower weekend, and another million in the months up to the wedding, quarter of a mil in the first two months. How much does this add up to..

This comment is spot on: "It takes a certain talent to look so cheap in such expensive clothes." She has no sense of style and no clue how to dress. She automatically goes for the most expensive labels, regardless of how appropriate they are for the occasion or whether she could find cheaper stuff for similar. She is dressing like she has no budget.

^ It takes a certain talent to look so cheap in such expensive clothes.

Spot on. The problem is not only in the price tag of the outfits. The problem is that things don't look good on her. She simply doesn't dress, doesn't know how to dress and even if someone else dresses her, she manager with her self-aggrandized ego to bring 'her' spin to the outfit just so that she can boast that she's a rule breaker, glass ceiling shutterer, trend setter ... fool with no common sense and no style.
