At least her hair looks much better, not messy or all in her face. Her legs would benefit,from the wide pants look, the skinny cropped make her legs look too skinny

I'd rather her wear neutrals all the time but in different styles, then wear the same style but in different colors. At least its interesting and fresh.

I loved it. Its chic and cool. Great to see her not in a traditional dress

I wouldn't add any color, especially the suit. If it was a red suit or such, IMO it would look more office like. Its not a suit, its a play on a tuxedo, meant to be black and white to pull off the look.

That said I'd have swapped the shirt with a proper tux top, really play up the tuxedo look.

And a great updo with statement earings, just to give a small pop to the look.

I think her look this evening is both “suit”able and strategic. A sister-in-law can be your best friend, and when she is, it’s wonderful.

Meghan knows something about a star and a supporting player.
LOL I don't think that is some ways by going against the usual mold its drawing MORE attention. Meghan is leading the headlines with this look.

Not a fan. The skinny pants do not flatter her legs, they looked like toothpicks. I know short pants are currently in but to my eye they always look like they can’t commit and are wanna be trousers or almost capris.
What a disappointment, I was expecting something more original and interesting from her for an evening event, alas.
At least we were spared the messy bun look - she looks gorgeous in it, of course, but I can’t wait until that particular fad fades.

Meghan looked lovely. When you are honoring men who are missing limbs, due to their bravery, fashion takes a backseat. Those men were the stars. She struck the right tone.

LOVE THIS! Absolutely first class. She is wearing her clothes, they are not wearing her. Totally appropriate. She is not into any pizzazz, though I think what she is wearing oozes class. She dressed for the role she was to play during that evening. Well done.

Agree 100%.

Have to agree with Terri Terri. It may have been billed as a "cocktail" event, but I'd say that was more of the exception than the rule. There were lots of polo shirts and khakis in that crowd. Across the board, I think Meghan's done a nice job of dressing for the event and considering the other attendees. I'd love to see her go full glam but then the pitchforks will be out that she's too Hollywood. Maybe that's the strategy...keep wearing understated style at events and then BOOM kill 'em with the wedding gown.

And sorry folks the neutral colors are here to stay.
Great points. I think we will learn a lot about Meghan's fashion intentions from her wedding gown.

I am one who found her choice at this event to be inspired. Very classy. And I agree she is not dressing to draw attention to herself or make any dramatic fashion statement. To do so may in fact be contrary to her nature. We will have to continue watching to get the full sense of her. I for one hopes she stays Meghan and does not morph into 'royal dressing for events' (like I think she may have 'slightly' done at the Christmas walk, with that hat).

Well said. She was dressing to be well groomed and appropriate, not 'the star'. JMO. Loved her presence on the stage. She is a winner for sure.

I loved everything about it. Meghan is suits is my new favorite thing. The wardrobe was perfect for this event. It was chic but understated and she didn't bring attention to herself as this was not about her but about the honorees. Meghan will have many opportunities to wear fancy dresses. This wasn't one of those times. She looked amazing and glad she staying true to herself.

Well I also loved her look, especially that blouse, jacket and those heels. The only thing she was missing for me was a little bit of bling, preferably a nice pair of earrings.

Exactly! It was a look appropriate for the event but also unexpected thus, drawing more attention. I'm not sure if it was a deliberate choice but I absolutely love that she doesn't feel any pressure to go with a predictable royal look, even if it would satisfy us royal watchers.

I thought this look was very boring, Victoria Beckham coming to my mind posing in her overrated tux/skinny pants style.

Unexpected, but appropriate and chic. Honestly I don't mind royal ladies wear something “boring” because they don't dress to entertain/impress us.

I liked the look a lot. Very chick, very appropriate for the event. Looking at the way her co-presenter was dressed, she dressed for the event, not to impress or highlight herself.

In general that has been her MO during all of the engagements Imo. She has dressed up suitable for each occasion, to fit with with the engagement, not to stand out or highlight herself. I appreciate it a lot.

I liked it, business-like, yet, feminine with her hair down.

I thought the suit was boring it was a red carpet do. Some nice earrings, a brooch it needed something. I find that with most of her outfits she misses the mark. All this ohh Megan is wearing trousers. Umm Diana did in fact she wore a tuxedo suit and she looked way better then megan does with some sparkle. Diana did wear pants/trousers, the Queen herself has worn trousers on official engagements usually when she is in really hot countries with bugs, Sophie LOVES wearing suits in fact on her engagement she wore pants. Meghen isn't doing anything that hasn't been done before and WAY better. So far she is so boring.

I didn't like the suit at first, but the better photos made a better impression. Agree that it would be great to see it in color--plum or burgundy would be a good choice. T-Lo loves just about everything she wears. and they went gaga over this look.
