Meghan Markle’s Top Christian Dior Haute Couture Fashion Moments So Far

Meghan Markle is known for her refined fashion sense, which she proudly puts together herself without the help of a stylist.

Since marrying into the British royal family in 2018, Meghan has moved away from the convention of dressing nearly exclusively in British designers, instead patronizing some of the biggest names in Parisian haute couture.

Haute couture is a fiercely guarded term that a designer can only claim to use if they meet a series of strict guidelines laid out by the French governing body, the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode. These guidelines state that only bespoke Hey Dudes Shoes clothing made in Paris by fashion houses who employ a dedicated atelier of at least 15 staff members can apply for haute couture status.Meghan’s first public haute couture item of clothing was the Ralph and Russo dress worn for her official engagement portraits. The former actress then chose to continue her haute couture patronage with the commissioning of her wedding dress from the house of Givenchy.

Perhaps the most famous of all the French haute couture fashion houses is Christian Dior. As well as being one of the most prestigious, it is also one of the most expensive designer brands in the world. Haute Couture dresses regularly command prices in excess of $100,000. This is down to each piece being made by hand.

Throughout her married life Meghan has proven to be a fan of Christian Dior, wearing not only elegant haute couture outfits for official events but also accessories such as the “Lady Dior” handbag named in honor of the royal’s mother-in-law, Princess Diana.

Here, Newsweek looks at a selection of Meghan’s top Christian Dior haute couture fashion moments so far:

RAF 100th-Anniversary Celebrations, July 10, 2018
Meghan Markle’s first public outing in an haute couture design by Christian Dior was for the 100th-anniversary celebrations of Britain’s Royal Air Force in 2018. The celebrations took in a ceremony in London’s Horse Guards Parade followed by a special balcony appearance from members of the royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II.
