Meghan wore her Alexander McQueen ‘Grain de prude’ wool blazer. The sharp shouldered blazer has a peak lapel collar (meaning the second part of the collar sticks out past the point of the first), a single breasted one-button closure, left welt chest pocket, two flap diagonal hip pockets, and contoured tailored panels through the rear that lead into a peplum style flap, almost like the tails of an equestrian dressage jacket. This blazer is a past season and no longer available.

Meghan wore Reiss ‘Azzura’, swirl printed shift dress, retailing for £368. This graphic printed mod-shift dress is inspired by retro 1960’s bold swirl patterns and silhoeuttes. With a high neckline, slightly blousson sleeves, oversize pleated cuffs and a keyhole at the back. The dress reaches to a knee length. We think this is the first time we have seen Meghan wear a piece from this high street store. You can purchase Meghan’s dress here.

Reiss Azzura Swirl Print Shift Dress

This is a great little dress but perhaps on the short side for this kind of event, especially trying to sit on a panel with people looking at you. A good stylist tip is to always go for a longer dress in this situation purely for your own peace of mind, you never have to worry about tugging your skirt down or if people can see up it.

Meghan carried her Stella McCartney ‘Shaggy Deer Falabella Crossbody Bag’. The grained leather front flap bag showcases the labels signature gold chain link trim and optional shoulder strap. The interior zip features the gold disc name plate.
