Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Roland Mouret & Givenchy – Ireland Visit

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has already presented two new look before lunchtime today (July 11) in Ireland, on day two of her visit with her husband Prince Harry.

Meeting Ireland’s President: Her first look was a taupe Roland Mouret bespoke ‘Clover’ dress which she styled with a Fendi ‘Peekaboo’ black bag and black Paul Andrew pumps. The look, which is very similar to her previous Roland Mouret dress, is very dignified and perfect for a presidential meeting. But the first question I asked myself was “why isn’t she celebrating Irish designers during this trip?” That’s the one thing I loved about Michelle Obama and Duchess Catherine when they traveled, as they always made it a point to find a way to represent the country they were in. Louise Kennedy, Simone Rocha and Paul Costelloe are three Irish designers I can think of off the top of my head, but the next generation of emerging designers could’ve also benefited from being spotlighted during this trip too.

Gaelic Athletic Association: Meghan’s second look saw her cut a stylish figure as she took the field in cropped black Givenchy suit and a white shirt, styled with a Givenchy belt and Sarah Flint pumps – when block heels or wedges would’ve been more appropriate considering the turf. On this occasion she traded in her Fendi bag for a small black clutch. Meghan hasn’t had much time to repeat, but this look did remind me of her Alexander McQueen look worn back in February.

Michelle Dockery In Roland Mouret – Royal Ascot

Michelle Dockery was spotted in the Longines suite in the Royal Enclosure, during Royal Ascot on Friday (June 22) in England.

The ‘Downton Abbey’ star bucked the white and black trend which was observed by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Ciara; by wearing a forest-green Roland Mouret ‘Taylor’ dress from the Pre-Fall 2018 collection.

While some might feel that this tailored dress isn’t in tune with the current season, feeling more festive than summer; when it comes to dressing for the occasion I think Michelle totally nailed it.

Princess Eugenie In Roland Mouret & Princess Beatrice In Mary Katrantzou – Serpentine Summer Party 2018

Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York attended the Serpentine Summer Party 2018 on Tuesday (June 19) in London, alongside Lady Kitty Spencer and Ciara.

Princess Eugenie: Joined by her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, the Princess wore a Roland Mouret asymmetrical top patterned with Japanese blooms that was simply styled with black trousers. If you’re having a case of deja vu, that’s because Yara Shahdi wore the same top recently.

Princess Beatrice: The royal looked fabulous wearing a beautiful dress from Mary Katrantzou’s Resort 2018 collection. I adore multi-coloured peacock-printed detail that was embossed on the super-shiny fabric of this flared design. When it came to the accessories, I loved the metallic silver sandals and smart black box bag engraved with ‘Be Nice Be Cool’, but the leather moto jacket felt a bit like she was trying a bit too hard.

Nieves Alvarez In Roland Mouret – Roger Vivier ♥ Madrid

Nieves Alvarez attended the ‘Roger Vivier Loves Madrid’ party on Tuesday (June 12) in Spain.

Those familiar with Roland Mouret’s meticulous craftsmanship will already purring over this fitted dress.

So refined with signature asymmetric panels meeting at a skew across the bodice, the look feels familiar, yet so fresh and modern at the same time.

Nieves is doing a helluva fine job selling this look, which was of course styled with Roger Vivier accessories.

Bryce Dallas Howard In Roland Mouret – ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ LA Premiere

Bryce Dallas Howard was joined by her Tom Ford-clad co-star Chris Pratt for the premiere of ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ on Tuesday (June 12) in Los Angeles, California.

You haven’t been impressed with Bryce’s promo tour looks so far, so I’m intrigued to see how this radiant red Roland Mouret dress fares?

What sells this look to me is the addition of the Johanna Ortiz deeper red sash belt and colourful Etro earrings.

Without either the look may have been too one note and lacking in depth.
