I have to agree with you.

She has worn mostly British designers. And I'm sure she will wear plenty more in the future. No reason to fret right now, I don't think.

Much better today than her past outing in Oscar de la Renta. It looks very chic and put together, but then again this type of outfit doesn´t require a lot of attention either.

I appreciate the details on the dress. It really lifts this one up from being extremely basic into slightly less basic.

I don't have much to say on the dress. It's neither wonderful or horrible. As for the hat, sometimes I look at it and love it and sometimes I -not actual hate, but really don't like it.

I think the hat is terrific. The dress isnt the best fit but it doesn't swallow her like that travesty she wore to the wedding. Unfortunately it is Meghan's style to wear clothes and jackets that are too loose.

Love the hat and the updo, not sold on the dress. The fit is nice, but it's little boring and I dislike the asymmetrical hem.

The outfit she wore for the wedding was a mess - from head to toe.

Just saw the dress in motion and it looks even better to me. I actually love the hem. Gives the dress some flair along with the lace detail.

It does look good with this material and the way it flows. If it had been that hem and chiffon, I would've been upset.

If you get a close up on the dress there is a embroidery or lace design at the waist/stomach area.

I do like the color combination on her , the dress, it is okay, the thing is the hem, looks like someone cut the bottom off and left it unattended, ripped hems and wavy hems look so unfinished to me, like the designer did not know what to do next in the design. There is a bit too much fabric in the bottom of the dress or skirt whatever, it is to full for a petite woman. I do like the sleeves a lot, and the fabric is gorgeous from what I see in the pictures, wow, want some of that fabric. The hat, not sure about it as I do not like see through hats or see through anything, seems cheap to me yet bet this cost a pretty penny as that is what designers do. Shoes are great, belt is great, hair is fabulous and make-up.....to much it seems or else my computer makes her look like there is pink spots on her cheeks...Oh, clutches, I do not like clutches of any kind, a hand held purse is more ladylike to me......in all JMHO!

I do like a nice shirt dress. Meghan's is elegant-the trim at the waistline gives it some formality and the handkerchief hem an update for a classic style for a modern twist.
I love the hat. Her accessories in black are tied together by the black in her hat.

I love the hat and bag, but the dress is nothing special, and I don't see the stunning Ascot debut that others are seeing. Which is fine; different strokes & all that. Her make-up makes her face look smudgy, but I suppose it could be the lighting. No doubt photographing outdoors is tricky, even for professional photogs.

It Also looks like her hair is properly done which is another plus.

I don't think I'm ever going to be a huge fan of Meghan's aesthetic, I have a much more classic sense of style, and Meghan is a much more modern dresser. This is ill fitted (again), and feels much too casual, especially once you see her alongside others. The lace placement is...distracting. I would have liked it more without, or on the shoulders, but on the waist covered by the belt is just awkward.

I do love the hat. I don't think I've found a PT hat I haven't appreciated.

And I don't mind the neutral colors. All of the ladies seemed to be in very pastel or neutral coloring today. Sophie's looked white initially, but appears to be pale pink.

Actually seeing Meghan's outfit at Ascot gave me "My Fair Lady" flashbacks.

Seriously? This dress is almost out of Hubert de Givenchy's sketch book. I wouldn't exactly call it modern. It's quite a classic look. Most of her clothing has quite a timeless look (minus whatever that was she wore last Sunday).

The hat and hair look great. The dress looks like something you would "find in your closet". She seems to be disappearing before our eyes. Seeing her next to Bea gave me a start.

The Duchess looks lovely, very vintage and the hat is to die for. Absolutely wonderful. I have to agree with the poster who commented on the Queen and Meghan in their interactions... they really do seem to like one another very much.
