Meghan Markle’s Bodycon Lace Dress Is Covered in Delicate Cutouts
Meghan Markle wrapped up her 2023 Invictus Games fashion tour on a colorful note. At the closing ceremony in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Sept. 16, the Duchess of Sussex wore a teal lace column dress by celebrity-adored brand Cult Gaia. The strapless ankle-length design was covered in floral embroidery, and the skirt featured delicate cutouts precisely made by lasers. It was an edgy, vibrant pick compared to some of the more subdued style choices of her past.
Markle accessorized the form-fitting dress with a gold Cartier Love bracelet, diamond hoop earrings by Kimai, and her favorite beige Aquazzura pumps, which she’s worn on repeat for years now. She attended the event with husband Prince Harry, who layered a navy suit over a black button-down shirt for the occasion.
At this year’s Invictus Games, Markle perfectly embodied the quiet-luxury fashion trend, stepping out in a series of monochromatic looks. The former “Suits” star paired a black and white J.Crew cardigan with Staud shorts to attend a wheelchair basketball competition on Sept. 13, and later that day, she changed into another affordable J.Crew sweater – this time, a black tank top – for the swimming finals. Other standout looks from the week include a white cable-knit Polo sweater vest, a black pleated Banana Republic shirt dress, and beige Cuyana separates.
