Meghan Markle hit the British Fashion Awards a few days ago during her an official public appearance without her husband Prince Harry.
On Monday, December 10, the Duchess of Sussex made a surprise visit to the event, held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, to present the Fashion Designer of the Year award to Givenchy’s artistic director, womenswear designer Clare Waight Keller , the same woman who designed the Duchess’ wedding gown
“It is such an honor to be here celebrating British fashion and British fashion designers in my new home of the U.K.,” she announced to the event attendees.
“This woman is so amazing, and I got to know Meghan on such a personal level,” Keller said during her acceptance speech. “And to have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life, is something that is just the most unbelievable honor and I can’t thank you enough. It was just the most beautiful moment.”
Carrying with the tradition, the former Miss Markle wore a black one sleeve Givenchy dresss and shoes with her hair worn in a sleek bun and finally broke British royalty fashion protocol by wearing dark deep red finger nail polish. Yes! Rebel! (smile)
She donned heels designed by Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon. Her Karat heels in Metallic Nappa retails for $550. The jewels, a pair of gold cuffs, were by Pippa Small, per the What Meghan Worewebsite.
While on stage, she did the ceremonial bump cradle sending the crown ad the event in a tizzy!
