Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Oscar de la Renta & Altuzarra – Coach Core Awards

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex In Oscar de la Renta - Coach Core Awards

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex attended the Coach Core Awards held at Loughborough University on Monday (September 24) in Loughborough, England.

When I saw this Oscar de la Renta Resort 2019 look I actually rejoiced.

You may be surprised as this is yet another navy/black look, but my joy came mostly from the fact that the look fits, and appears to have been tailored perfectly to suit her body shape.

One can’t deny how the top also shows a less ageing influence in the artfully draping and asymmetrical peplum.

I love how she teamed her top with tailored Altuzarra ‘Serge’ trousers (she’s worn before) and simple, pointed-toe Aquazzura pumps to give this exquisite top the centre stage it deserves.

    I loved this outfit. Crisp and clean.

    This feels like early 00’s chic – bleh

    I like the pants and I like the top, just not together. I’ve never been a fan of navy mixed with black….it’s one of my fashion pet peeves. I wish she had worn the top with navy pants. She would’ve looked wonderful IMO.
    But as FC noted, everything fits and that alone is a win for the Duchess.

      +1 I really don’t like Navy and Black together either

    Not an exciting look, but it’s only an appearance on a university’s basketball court so hard to be critical.

    I think she looks best in colour so hope to see more bright colours on her tour Downunder.

    Sleek. The pants fit her perfectly and that top is dope

  6. Kate September 25, 2018 at 2:12 am #

    The belt accentuates her short torso and the outfit throws her proportions off. I like these pieces individually, just not on the Duchess!

    This look is dour and aging.

    Are bootcut pants a “trend” again? They look so dated.

  8. Laura September 24, 2018 at 11:14 pm #

    She’s had a run of really great simple, elegant & sophisticated looks.

  9. J September 24, 2018 at 10:04 pm #

    She should have worn flats. I cringe for that floor.

    I like this, just not for an athletic venue. I know her feet are killing her. Walking and standing in heels are bad enough. Hopping around catching balls? Her feet are the real MVPs.

        I think it’s cause she gave a speech afterwards as well on like a stage, so she went for the heels to be a bit “formal” but it’s a nice look, maybe just a high pony would have made it look more business like but overall just ADORE her!!

    I like the outfit but it should be a UK based label or designer.

    • meme September 24, 2018 at 9:07 pm #

      For the rest of her life is she only supposed to wear UK designers?

      • TeaAtTwo September 24, 2018 at 9:22 pm #

        Yes, the majority of her clothes for public official occasions should be connected to the Britain. Promoting the UK is a big part of the purpose of royal family now and her label choices should be considered and reflect that.

        • Jackie September 24, 2018 at 11:12 pm #

          That seems like a made up rule. Why not just let her represent the way she wants?

          • TeaAtTwo September 25, 2018 at 12:05 am #

            I didn’t say that it was formally written instructions. It’s just inappropriate and disappoint for the new role.

          • Milly September 25, 2018 at 10:04 am #

            It’s not a rule, but since UK taxpayers are funding her official wardrobe, it would be the right thing to do. With all the media interest in her clothing, surely it would make sense for her to promote UK fashion so that UK designers reap the economic benefits from ‘the Meghan effect’.

            • TeaAtTwo September 25, 2018 at 10:27 am #

              I agree, Milly

            • justme September 25, 2018 at 10:01 pm #

              Prince Charles via the Duchy of Cornwall funds her wardrobe, not UK taxpayers.

              I fail to see why an American should feel obligated to exclusively wear British designers.

              Even Kate doesn’t, like…

              • TeaAtTwo September 26, 2018 at 8:10 am #

                She’s now part of the British royal family, she should promoting the achievements of her adoptive country. Catherine should be wearing British designers too. When abroad on official tours or hosting foreign dignitaries or events would be fine to wear that countries labels though.

    It’s amazing how I enjoy more her style when she is wearing trousers. She looks more comfortable and mosty more stylish imho.
