Meghan Markle ditched her custom Dior gowns in favor of a reasonably-priced dress for an International Women’s Day panel held at King’s College London on Friday.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, joined fellow panelists like Annie Lennox and model Adwoa Aboah for the discussion hosted by the Queen’s Commonwealth trust wearing the long sleeve, high-neck “Azzura” dress by UK brand Reiss ($345) featuring an all-over black-and-white swirl print.
But while the former ‘Suits’ star’s dress was surprisingly affordable, the rest of her look was more suited for a royal budget. She paired the frock with a $1,995 black Alexander McQueen grain de poudre wool blazer, which she previously wore in February of last year to her first official evening event with Prince Harry at the annual Endeavour Fund Awards.
The look was accessorized with the black Stella McCartney “Shaggy Deer” faux leather crossbody bag ($875) edged with a gold chain, black suede Manolo Blahnik “BB” pumps ($625) and delicate, gold Jessica McCormack hoop earrings set with two .20 carat brilliant cut diamonds ($3,500).
