I think that Harry and
Melania would make a hot couple as well .Just a phantasy of course
Meghan' s blouse is too low-necked IMO. A hint IMO that she' ll have trouble with her future part in the royal family
With those outfits she bettter lives in Los Angeles with Harry....

Not even going to touch the Melania comment.

As for her neckline, if Kate can wear a much lower cut to a state banquet, Meghan's outfit was more than appropriate for opening ceremony to Invictus Games. Just so we are clear, I have no problem with what Kate wore, but just using that as a standard to measure what is appropriate and what is not.

So I was lurking around social media and I was shocked �� to see some of the downright hatred and venom directed towards Meghan��
There is actually an Instagram page out there whose name describes Meghan in less than glowing terms (to be more politically correct). Moreover this page actually tags the official IG account of the Cambridges and Prince Harry as well as the BP acct. No wonder Prince Harry wants Meghan protected! There are some deranged and crazy people out there!... Smh

One thing I've learned in my many, many years online is that its very easy for people to "pretend" to be whomever they want to be, espouse whatever they want to espouse and hiding behind a keyboard and a monitor (or smartphone these days) can pretty much say whatever crapola they can think up.

The important thing is to realize this. Its a reason that when wanting information about Harry or Meghan, Instagram and social media will be the last place I'd ever think of to spend time on. You're absolutely correct that there are whackos and people that take pleasure in creating a negative vibe out there. Its a personal choice whether or not to pay any attention to it. I don't and I admire the TRF staff and moderators that keep that kind of crapola off these forums.

Just a note: Meghan's attendance at the Invictus Games, should go in the Invictus Games thread (remember to keep engagement speculation out of that thread).

In addition to moving a number of posts to the Invictus thread, I've also moved some to the 'Could the princes' future wives continue working' thread.

I'm not going to post a pic of DoC in Meghan and Harry thread. That's asking to get deleted. But the gown I'm referring to is the one she wore to the state banquet for King and Queen of Spain earlier this summer. Or go look up a number of dress Harry's mother wore over twenty years ago, and its obvious that royal consorts aren't expected to be covered from neck to toe. Bottom line is, Meghan didn't wear anything inappropriate by royal standards set since the 90s.

Ok, I love the story about Harry visiting the Suits set. Sounds really sweet. But I want to know how Harry just shows up and surprises anyone? Like, how does that work?? I'm sure he had to notify someone beforehand that he was planning on visiting? Perhaps just the security team/head of security?

Did you see the dress that Kate wore to the last State Banquet? It is cut much lower than what Meghan was wearing.

It's nice to hear Harry visited the set of Suits. Must've been a nice treat for for the cast and crew.

It's good to hear afterwards, how things have been happening with Harry and meghan.im so positively surprised, how tight lipped the cast and crew have been. I loved Meghan's dress at the ig, too. Now I'm anxiously waiting what their next move will be.

She could have worn a burlap sack for all I care. I just think there's a whole lot more to really have a discussion about a relationship than (gag) fashion. It just seems so superficial.

That's just me though.

If it's that important, you can make a similar dress yourself, or ask a friend who knows how to sew. I'd never pay humongous prices just to have something someone I admire wore. If I really like it, I'd look for something similar that's more reasonably priced. But first, it would have to suit my style and frame.

Before Meghan became world famous for dating Prince Harry, she had the contract with Reitmans for the capsule collections. There have been two capsule collections with lovely reasonably priced clothes. If I'd known sooner, I would have purchased some of those clothes which were wonderful for building a casual, savvy wardrobe. Yep, many clothes and accessories Meghan wears are quite delightful, and it's possible to chart her style evolution. Some of the items she's worn that I love, include the Berardi dress she wore to Harry's polo match in May, the Erdem flower print maxi dress worn when she accompanied Harry to the Inskip wedding, the gorgeous camel coat she was seen wearing for lunch with Markus the day after news broke wide open that she's Harry's gf. And yes, the deep burgundy/maroon color and styling of the dress and jacket Meghan wore to the Invictus ceremony is sublime.

The Telegraph article link provided here earlier stating that the dress is sold out gives a much better view of the dress. Plus, there are more details and better pics on a site called Meghan's Mirror which provides excellent summary details of Meghan's fashion, if you're interested. The site is cool because it's informative and classy, not cheap and not exploitative. I won't link it here, but you should be able to locate it easily. I actually love the way Meghan casually drapes the motor jacket over her arms. It's a perfect accompaniment to the dress because it was probably cool inside the arena, and the dress is sleeveless and low-cut.

Meghan simply has great style, somewhat similar to Diana Princess of Wales, and former First Lady Michelle Obama. Some people are just naturally gifted with an innate sense of style. Sure they soak up all the knowledge they can, and they receive advice from stylists, but they also first just have that special sense of style and grace internally themselves. It's a natural gift that can't be taught, like someone having a natural eye for being painter or a sculptor. You can take classes, sure, but when you have a special gift, you just have it, and it's part of you. I also think that grace, style and ease come with knowing who you are as a person, inside and out.

And my comments are related to the Meghan and Harry relationship in that Meghan being a savvy, stylish person with great fashion sense is a huge part of who she is and why Harry finds her so appealing. For Invictus, she wore brands associated with her adopted country, Canada, and that was not by mistake. It's relevant to comment on Meghan's style in connection to her relationship with Harry, as once they are engaged and married, everything she wears will be commented on and scrutinized (very similar to some of the threads here on what royal ladies wear every week). Obviously, Meghan's wedding dress will be eagerly anticipated. Her savvy, unique style is significant to the fresh appeal she brings to the royal family.

Two things I’d like to see her ditch right off the bat are draping jackets over her shoulders. It looks silly. She did it at Invictus and that’s the third time I’ve seen her do it.

The other thing is that god awful posing for the camera with her legs crossed in front of her. A lot of celebrities do this and it always looks like she has to go to the loo.

Actually, crossing your legs isn't a celebrity thing. It's a normal person thing. im not sure about U.K, but in US, it's quite common and normal. And yes, I understand the royal ladies don't do it. I'm sure it'll change once she becomes Harry's fiancé and attend events in an official capacity. Until then, she's free to be a normal person. As for her jacket, it's a fashion thing. I think she looks fine. These are quite petty things to pick on, aren't they?

Thanks for the advice, but I liked that dress because it's quite reasonably priced. And no, it's not that important to me, just commented because I thought that dress would be nice.

We were told to discuss her fashion in this thread and one thing you’ll learn from fashion threads at TRF is just far ranging opinions are. I find many comments ‘petty’ but I’m told that’s what fashion is all about.

For every person who thinks Meghan is a style icon, there will be people like myself who don’t like her style.

I hate the jacket draped no matter who wears it. It's dropping off your shoulders all the time

It's the Forehead hair 'curtains' I hate, and since she's fairly pretty i'm baffled by them..
