Duchess Meghan wears Altuzarra trousers, de la Renta top for Coach Core event

Royals attend Coach Core Awards at Loughborough University

Ugh, I completely forgot that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were doing an event today. In my defense, I thought that since this event was called the “Coach CORE Awards” that it would be in the evening, GMT, and that we would be getting the photos a lot later in the day. Meghan and Harry arrived at Loughborough University this afternoon to start this event, which is affiliated with Heads Together and all of the umbrella sporting/mental health issues.

For this sporty event, Meghan chose… TROUSERS! Yas! Meghan wore Altuzarra trousers in either navy or black (they look different colors in different photos) and a navy Oscar de la Renta top which is interesting – there seems to be some feminine detailing and a flared waist. She also seems to be wearing high heels, as opposed to flats or sneakers. Kate also gets into that kind of footwear quandary often enough – it’s a sporty event, so do you wear sneakers? But it’s also a real “royal event,” so should you go for a dressier look? No one is sure what to do, so Meghan just wore heels.

It also looks like Meghan had a fresh blowout? My theory is that Harry didn’t explain the event clearly enough and she thought she needed to be a lot dressier.

    I think she looks perfect and matches Harry’s style in a suit. Love the top!

    • Snowslow says:

      The top is gorgeous!!!! The colour is beautiful. She is so elegant and yet vivacious.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Top is pretty, but NOT for this event, or paired with those pants. Gotta wonder… what the HELL happened to her “style” after “I Do”??? She looked GREAT during the engagement period, but YIKES… this top does NOT go with those pants, and those heels do NOT work on a gym floor. (Also, a ponytail would’ve been better today) And I’m a fan!

      • Holly says:

        Uh … I think that top goes with those pants? Personally I would’ve done a skinner pant but it still works. It’s boss lady chic, but I don’t blame her for that.

        That’s the interesting thing about “style”. I think she looks great yet you hate it. It’s subjective.

      • Wilma says:

        The whole look = goals to me. It always amuses me when people slam the looks I would love to have in my closet or actually have in my closet. Reminds me that it is impossible to please everyone.

      • Beth says:

        Everyone has their own opinion of what’s stylish and attractive. If we all went around wearing the exact same style, eating the same food, listening to the same music, etc, this would be a very boring world. Impossible to please everyone, because we’re all different people

      • Patty says:

        Kate always looks the part at sporting events. Great outfit but wrong for this event. Put your hair up (ponytail, bun, French twist….)wear a more casual top, and at least wear flats. And she’s always had a bump at her midsection for those on the bumpwatch.

      • CeeCee says:

        Those shoes on that wood floor?? I was cringing. Totally wrong look and can damage the floor. The pants are nice, but that top is dreadful. I also think her hair looks stringy in some pics and very damaged. I thought she had thick hair, but it looks pretty thin here.
        What happened to her style since she got married?? I really liked it before the wedding.

      • emma says:

        She looks like a paralegal, this is not cute for this event. Nice top though but maybe she could’ve worn a different color. God I hope she wears color in Australia. I don’t know how many more of these dark colored outfits i can take.
        I tried very hard to lower my expectations but even then i was disappointed.
        Between her and plantation wedding Blake Lively i literally want to deface the next power pant suit i see. Too much of a good thing.

  2. Snowslow says:

    That hair wants to curl so bad… She is going to destroy her curls no? My curly/afro hair friends tell me that straightening your curls destroys them. I have very dry, wavy/curly hair (a mess, basically) and I noticed that my hair was loosing its shape when I took to straightening it too.
    Of course, she is not going to listen to me or emulate my desires but I would love the see other hairdos.

    • Mims says:

      I was so secretly wanting her to wear her hair naturally curly at the wedding, but of course it is her hair and I obviously don’t know what her natural texture is like now. Even without procedures, hair texture can change. Mine got a lot frizzier as I gold older, and one of my cousins went from stick-straight hair to having super-tight curls (which runs in the family, but it took having babies for that to kick in, apparently!). This looks like she blow dried her hair upside down and then ran a brush through it. Not my favorite look. Then again, “not my favorite look” of Meghan’s is still something I fan girl wildly over, since I love her.

      As for what she wore…. eh. It is quite cute, and despite being dressy, it’s totally appropriate for moving about. She’s good in heals (I used to live in them! Took my driver’s test in them, would literally run around in my heels. People could have tried to rob me and I’d have let them take anything, even my clothes, but they sure as sh*t weren’t gonna get me out of my heeled boots!), and the blazer is a bit frilly but not in the way. I love it. I just secretly wish she’d rock some natural curls. That’s all I want for Christmas!

      • Bailie says:

        I hope she doesn’t wear her hair curly, I don’t think it would suit her.

      • OriginalLala says:

        I also not-so-secretly wish she would rock her curls. I’m a curly gal and the message us curlies always get from society is that straight is is better, straight hair is more professional…it’s infuriating to me. she can do what she wants of course, but I’d love to see more women wear their natural texture (wavy, curly etc)

      • violet says:

        @Mims – you took your driver’s test in heels?! My hat is off to you. I was so petrified of losing control of the car that I wore sneakers with a tweed skirt and cashmere sweater. The instructor guffawed when he saw me, which didn’t help my nerves (thankfully I passed).

        To add to this discussion, my father had stick straight hair all his life, until he joined the service and was sent overseas by ship. By the time he got to the other side of the Atlantic, his hair swept back from his forehead and up in beautiful waves, and it never went back to straight. He swears the salty ocean air did it.

        I really like the different lengths around her face, it’s a change from bun and tendrils, gives the interest without the tendril look which I think was getting old. Perhaps she can’t quite make up her mind herself, yet.

      • Princessk says:

        But does Meghan have any of her natural curls left after years and years of straightening them to fit into what Hollywood looks for l doubt if her curls could come back. Sadly they have gone for good.

        But l think she is wearing more and more extensions.

      • RoyalBree says:

        I would love to see her original curls too! What a cutie she was as a kid. Wouldn’t mind also seeing her original teeth and smile as a teenager. This outfit is amazing — I would wear that top in a second (but not to this event), and her legs go on forever. I read she was presenting an award later, so perhaps that’s the reason for the formal look.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I have fine hair that curls / frizzes and I love getting a blow-out, but I don’t do it too often (heat styling in general tends to damage my hair, which already has a tendency to fall out if I sneeze too hard). I’ll admit to loving how it looks when it is straight, and it is so much easier to style. Wake up, run a brush through my hair and boom, done, lol.

      As for Meghan, I think she looks gorgeous no matter what, even if I can’t ever remember seeing her at an event with her hair really curly. I will say, though, that for this event it might have been more practical if she’d worn in back in a ponytail.

    • Des says:

      She’s already said in an interview that she doesn’t have curls anymore after all the treatments so you’re not likely to see her with natural hair

    • Snowslow says:

      Her photos as teen with long curls are beautiful. Again, this is a personal thing but as someone who has dry wavy/curly hair, I m in awe with “real” curls or afro hair. And it also pains me that although I don’t have the later, my hair is still seen as “messy” to the point where I was once told off at work for having it natural. So, yes, it would be inspiring to see her rock her natural curls. But again, she does whatever she wants with her hair.

      • OriginalLala says:

        I stubbornly refuse to ever straighten my curls because I want to rebel against the culture of “straight is better” – esp in work environments! I found that finding a curly hair stylist and getting my curls in tip top shape helped alot. People no longer “applaud” me for wearing my hair naturally, now they just comment on how nice my curls are

    • Veronica S. says:

      She may be one of those women whose hair is “in between,” so more wavy than truly curly or straight. I have the same issue, and I can get why she flat irons it if that’s the issue. It’s a giant pain to maintain it all day without frizzing.

      • Snowslow says:

        @OriginalLala
        Yes! Same here. To my shame it was my daughter and my son’s girlfriend who showed me the products and how to handle my hair.
        @Veronica S. That is what I used to say about mine until I knew how to deal with it. Also the advantage is that our kind of hair is great for updos and other kinds of experimental styles!

      • ZigZags says:

        Yes. I’m an “in-between” at this age. I had very straight hair when I was younger. So straight that it couldn’t hold a curl without a lot of Aqua Net or L’Oreal Studio Line hair spray (showing my age). But as I’ve aged it’s become thinner and much wavier. In some places it’s downright curly. I tried to work with it for years because I love curly hair. I love textured hair. Big hair. Hair Hair Hair.

        Alas, despite using all of the right products, I tended to look like Phil Spector in his court photos or a wet dog. Very little in between. Sometimes a strong wind could blow the natural curl into a messy frizz. Let’s not even talk about humidity. Many days I looked like I had a Christmas tree placed on top of my head.

        I’ve been told that it’s common for women after child birth and as we creep into our 40′s to experience this change. Blame the hormones and genetics. It doesn’t help that the color faded to a dull 5N, but the oily scalp didn’t disappear with age.

        Now I get a very (very) light keratin treatment every 6-8 weeks when I have my color done. It’s been life changing. I can blow it out in 8 minutes and it stays decent looking unless faced with the most egregious of humid conditions. The color (highlights) add some depth and color to my hair as well as providing some volume to fight the oiliness. Since I’m not abusing it with a lot of products or long term heat tools anymore, it looks pretty good.

        So who knows what Meghan is facing with her hair. The humidity is a huge factor as is the time it takes to style moderately to highly textured hair. It may also be easier to have the straight hair if she struggles to find the right team to take care of her hair. We all know that women of color and mixed race women (anyone other than white, western women) don’t get the love and attention they deserve from mainstream hair companies and stylists.

      • Spicecake38 says:

        Same for me I have very curly hair in the back and underneath,smooth top and sides that are face framing.My hair is super thick and pretty long-past shoulders.It takes FOREVER to air dry, so I blow dry and quickly run a flat iron through ,but I’m toying with the idea of cutting it too wear curly and buying all the products meant for curly hair.If any of you read Drew Barrymore ‘s post from a few days ago-her hair in those photos is what mine looks like when I try to go curly 😂I’m open to any and all advice!!!

  3. Lala11_7 says:

    I think Meghan could play volleyball in heels…and I think she knows that folks expect the Royals to be “Extra” and she delivers what they want with style….and I’ma NEED that top!!!!

    • Ashby says:

      I think she would have looked great in a ponytail and dressy type of flat (maybe ballet) shoes.
      The heels look really odd and strange to me on a basketball court and it can damage the flooring.
      Heels are not the only dressy type of shoe available and she has pretty much unlimited access to various shoe and clothing choices = sky is the limit!

      • Katy says:

        Maybe some nice, feminine oxfords.

        They are really versatile – smart, but comfortable. Perfect for engagements where she’s going to do some kind of physical activity, but where actual gym clothes would be overkill.

        They look good with cigarette pants that are slightly cropped at the ankle. They’re also very quintessentially British.

    • Fluffy Princess says:

      Co-Sign to this–including the top! Gorgeous!

      • YankLynn says:

        We have seen her in flats before with jeans. I’d have to guess here that her trousers are all hemmed for high heels ( and we know how often she gets called out on the length with heels even) She needs some sportier go-to slacks and shoes — the equivalent of Kate’s wedges….. but not wedges `:) Her ankle trouser and a trendy flat would have been my vote.

  4. Gigi La Moore says:

    Love her, hate most of her clothes.

  5. aquarius64 says:

    Love the top too.

    I noticed in the Fail when it has a section titled The Royal Family Doria is included.

  6. truthSF says:

    I love, love, love this look!!😍

  7. London says:

    She looks great, she has such a lovely skin tone, wonderful bone structure and nice hair.
    I think that she could wear less high and thin heeled shoes for these sporty type of events.
    Meghan looks amazing in pants, much, much better than skirts above the knee.

  8. Deedee says:

    She looks great! As for the heels, the video shows her passing the ball, but not running, jumping, playing defense, so heels were fine. Also, this was an awards ceremony and her outfit is on the same level dressy as Harry’s.

    • Killjoy says:

      Right…she probably could have done more if she weren’t wearing heels!

      • Deedee says:

        So, you’re saying she was expected to do more and didn’t dress appropriately? Or are you just shading her for wearing heels?

      • Killjoy says:

        DeeDee – I really think you might be reading too much into peoples’ comments here. It’s just a bit of a logicf*ck to say that it’s not as if Meghan were shooting, running, etc., when all of those things are more difficult to do in heels. I’m not saying she should have been doing those things, just that the fact that she wasn’t doesn’t prove heels were a great choice. For all I know, she had no idea she’d be down on the court. I literally haven’t had an actual problem with a thing she or Kate has ever worn. I seriously can’t be here for picking apart women’s appearances like this, even if it is part of their job. I was just commenting that it’s odd to see heels on a basketball court, although I see in one of your other billionty comments on this post, you’ve pointed out Coach Muffet McGee. Maybe NCAA courts are made of better wood, IDK why the coach wears them, it looks ridiculous to me, but obviously its not as big of an issue as I’ve been taught.

    • jessamine says:

      Exactly, she’s on the same dressy-level as Harry’s jacket. And she’s beautiful.

    • Lisbon says:

      @ Deedee :

      I don’t think that heels look good on that court. She could have worn a nice pair of black ballet flats with more straight legged pants and a ponytail.
      Would have been still dressy, classy, but a bit more appropriate.
      Heels are not the only type of shoes out there that are for dressier occasions.

      • Deedee says:

        How are heels not appropriate? She was standing in one spot, tossing a ball. That’s what most women who are NCAA coaches do. They wear dresses, suits and pants, and (ahem) heels. She was part of an awards ceremony and dressing to the equivalent of Harry’s suit. If she had worn some flats and a ponytail she would’ve been “too casual” and “not taking her royal work seriously” and “she doesn’t even look like she and Harry are at the same event.” If she was going to jump into the game, I guess she should’ve put on the uniform or a track suit. But what she wore is fine.

      • London says:

        I agree with you Lisbon, I don’t know why a lovely pair of designer black ballet flats with straight legged pants would not look dressy.
        And a ponytail would have been fun for a bit of a sporty event.
        I’ve seen women with ponytails in evening gowns and it looked great and appropriate.
        It all depends on how it’s done, a sloppy ponytail certainly wouldn’t look good, but execution very much matters.
        This strange notion that somehow only high heels work for a dressier occasion is so very much outdated.

      • Beth says:

        @Deedee, nobody is saying heels are inappropriate or not allowed, we’re saying that she would have looked better in a different style shoe at this event. Why are you so defensive about heels? They’re just shoes

      • Ange says:

        Deedee even if she didn’t move she had to get out there and back somehow didn’t she? As someone who has had to do maintenance on a basketball court I can tell you it doesn’t take much to damage the flooring.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think she looks great and her outfit is appropriate with Harry’s.
      The thought of wearing high spike heels on a basketball court gives me second hand anxiety! I’d slip and fall within seconds.

    • As says:

      Hey Deedee, why so aggressive, please let people politely express their opinion?

    • notasugarhere says:

      Outfit looks fine to me. They aren’t there to participate in the program but to support it and meet the honorees.

    • Masamf says:

      I swear pics can be deceptive. When you watch the vid, it gives an entirely different story. I love this look and I love it very much. And I still stand by my conviction that Meg is hiding a bump. I know, I know, but that’s my story and Im sticking to it, LOL. :)

  9. Killjoy says:

    I think she looks great, and matches Harry, but heels do *not* belong on a basketball court – the could damage the court! I wish she could go full fashion-girl at something like this and pop on the dad-sneakers.

  10. Whatabout says:

    I love the top and hair/makeup is perfection. Just not feeling the black/navy bootleg pant. I think a straight leg would look great. But I guess that would mean no high heels or like a kitten heel maybe?

  11. Meg says:

    her hair looks funny. and yes-she looks too dressed up. there has to be a middle ground. even her face-she looks uncomfortable IMO

  12. Melania says:

    Has she a new hairdo? She lokks so beautiful and they’re so cute together

  13. NYCTYPE says:

    Sorry, but heels on the basketball court looks really weird to me. Yes, it’s some award show type of event, but it still about sports and she is on a basketball court. It’s not right.
    There is a lot of options between sneakers and high spikey heels.
    Otherwise she looks wonderful.

  14. Beth says:

    I don’t like black and navy blue together, but I do like her outfit. Heels make her look a little too dressy, akward and out of place in the gym, and flats would’ve been better shoes for this

  15. girl_ninja says:

    I love the looks. Duchess Meghan looks wonderful in blue.

  16. Vanessa says:

    I think she looks really nice if she would have dress down like people are suggesting people would have ripped apart and say she not taking her role as royal seriously.

  17. Maum says:

    Well Kate gets constantly criticised for not wearing appropriate outfits for the occasion- this is clearly the case here.

    I like the outfit but if she was going to be on a court she should have worn flats. She looks kinda ridiculous throwing that ball.

  18. Jessica says:

    I like the top but it doesn’t go with the pants and the heels don’t work in this setting. She’s beautiful always but this wasn’t her best look. The photos look a bit silly. She’s 50/50 with the hits/misses for me. I do prefer her aesthetic to Kate’s. Diana’s fashion only got really good in her later years. She wore a lot of dreadful nonsense in the ’80s.

    Oh, and shade is such an overused expression and it’s often not used correctly. Direct criticism is not shade! Shade is subtle!

  19. Loretta says:

    The top was sold out in less than an hour. Impressive

  20. Derrière says:

    It looks like Meghan added pieces to her hair or went with a wig and it’s not properly blended.

    This look would have been so much better if she wore a simple top tucked into her pants.

    It really does look like someone did not fully describe the event because I would have been dressier for an official awards ceremony on the royal calendar. It’s too bad no one passed along the memo.

    • Mae says:

      Nah I think she has stopped her keratin treatments because of reasons…we will see it in less than 9 months *if you know what I mean*, and she’s been straightening her hair using a flat iron instead. Lol.
      Be prepared for a lot more of these creative tops in the coming weeks.

      • Hotsauceinmybag says:

        I am a reformed blowout connoisseur and it looks like she added in other synthetic pieces AND flat ironed. She may have done her hair herself or has a different hair stylist.

        On top of that she **could** be pregnant but I don’t like speculating on women’s pregnancies/fertility and the like…

      • Masamf says:

        ITAWY Mae. I still am convinced that she is creatively hiding a bump. Way too frequent pleats, and folds and stuff to her front mid section. And there distraction game she is playing? Hmmmmm :)

      • Princessk says:

        Yes, you gals on celebitchy said that as soon as she gets pregnant she will stop her treatments. It looks as though she is compensating by wearing more an more extensions, poor girl. I so wish she could go natural but her only option would probably be to cut her hair short and start again because of all the damage.

      • Derriere says:

        @Mae This would be the happiest of reasons for a not-so-great hair day!

        I saw some video of the event where Meghan presented an event and her outfit looks fine for the most part then (don’t quite like the navy and black/midnight blue together).

    • NΞΞNΔ ZΞΞ says:

      100%
      I think her hair looks terrible, like she did it herself and couldn’t blend the clip ins with that flat ironed pieces.
      Seems like one of the perks of being a royal is professional hair and make-up whenever you want it, no?
      I don’t mind the outfit (but I work in finance so it looks very familiar), but I wish she would change it up a little from all the black pants. Why not charcoal or heather gray? Or plaid? Or pinstripe? Or plum?

  21. Belluga says:

    Love the look, but heels aren’t right for the event, especially those stilettos. A pair of patent black loafers or ballet flats might have been nice.

    • violet says:

      @Belluga – oh you mentioned one of my guilty weaknesses: ballet flats! I just think they are the best and combine elegance with comfort in a sneaky way, and they go with so many things if they are the right textures – suits, trousers, dresses, jeans. I have like six pairs. I think they would look fabulous on Meghan, but she’s so tiny perhaps she just doesn’t want to look any smaller.

      • Sam says:

        I could not agree with you more, I love ballet flats.
        Such a lovely change from heels.
        They are classy and elegant and work with many different types of outfits.
        So under appreciated.

      • ZigZags says:

        Are y’all familiar with Rothy’s? I started buying them earlier this year as I was burning through all of my expensive leather ballet flats with my wide, flat feet and very hard foot strike. I love the Rothy’s so much more than most of my ballet flats. They have a pointed toe flat, a rounded toe flat, and a loafer. They just added an athleisure sneaker last week. I have a couple pairs of the loafers because my feet are so wide and the pointed toe and rounded toe options didn’t provide me with enough coverage.

        Everyone loves my shoes when I’m out and about. Several friends have bought pairs and love them. The loafer style looks chic AF with skinny jeans, straight leg trousers, and cigarette pants. They are machine washable in cold water , lay flat to dry, and are light weight. I don’t work for them or know anyone that works for them. I just love these shoes and I’m grateful to have a more durable and easier option available.

      • Belluga says:

        Oh me too Violet! The easiest way to look elegant and professional while avoiding heels in a corporate office, which I am absolutely for. Love heels, don’t love them for a whole day!

        Rothys look interesting, love me some colour options! And machine washable?!

  22. Peg says:

    She was at least smart enough not to run or jump on the court.

  23. shy vi says:

    Duchess Megan and her well concealed bump both look beautiful. And I see she has stopped doing the keratin treatments temporarily too..dead giveaway lol. Anyway lovely candid shots : )

  24. 2020 says:

    Meghan is pregnant, look at her mid section. I see a baby bump..

  25. Digital Unicorn says:

    She looks lovely and i covet that top. The colour really suits her.

    On a downer of a note, Scammy is apparently flying to the UK to ‘confront’ her over Evil Papa Smurf’s health. She apparently posted an image of herself at an airport – whether she was going anywhere or just there for the pap opportunity is unclear. Good luck getting past palace security sweetheart – these guys are highly trained and are one of the few cops in the UK who are legally allowed to carry hand guns.

  26. Prissa says:

    I just LOVE her silhouette!!! That skinny frame (a la Angelina Jolie) is so beautiful and graceful. BEAUTY DEFINED!!

  27. Sparkly says:

    Love the outfit, hate the hair. The bangs/front looks all wonky.

  28. violet says:

    Well, I think the colors are muddy – I have always disliked navy and black together, neither color does anything for the other one except cancel it out, so I just don’t know why anyone wears it – and while I like the overall silhouette, I still think this kind of outfit makes her look tubby in the middle. Her hair looks beautiful and fresh, though! And the cost of the top is exorbitant, and again a foreign luxury label.

    I thought Meghan was making her first solo visit to an art gallery this week? Did I get that wrong? Must keep track!

  29. Betsy says:

    I don’t get the heels and I don’t like her pretty face being covered with her hair, but otherwise she looks great. I love navy and black together.

    I kind of like that she hasn’t found her uniform yet? It means we get more variations on styles. Kate has pretty much settled into her clothing style and there’s not much surprise.

  30. Sam says:

    She seems like such a lovely woman, inside and out, but I really don’t understand heels on the court.
    There are so many options available in shoes these days, especially with her resources.
    It doesn’t have to be always heels for every event or sneakers for more causal or sporty events.
    Sooooo much room in the middle!

  31. ladida says:

    Great outfit, wrong occasion.

  32. Amelie says:

    That is one beautiful top/sweater she is wearing. A little too long for my taste but she rocks it. I don’t mind her wearing long pants and heels on a basketball court. I think she will eventually learn she is allowed to dress down a little at sporting events.

    My only criticism is her hair. Usually I think it’s fine, messy bun and all. But the early 2000s flatiron look she gave herself reminds me so much of middle/high school when I felt like the odd one out with my thick, wavy hair. It wasn’t a good look on girls back then and it’s not a good look on Meghan now. Stay way from the flat iron Meghan! Or whatever blowout technique was used here.

  33. Agenbiter says:

    Whatever we all think recedes into the background

    You see Harry looking at her and they’re the only two people in the world …

    They do that a lot, like they forget other people are around. They are both affectionate but, PH is on another level.
    The next time someone say Meghan is clingy, there is a video on YouTube of him rubbing her back, while talking to one of the children at that Wellness Awards, honestly I know if he was aware he was doing it.

    Hmmm…I think she may have a fresh keratin treatment. Depending on her natural hair texture, she may still get the treatment that prevents you from washing it for several days or putting it up in any way lest you create a bump or bend in the hair. Honestly, it’s a torturous process and I hated every minute of it. It looked and felt gross on my already oily scalp. I had to keep flat ironing it in the morning and at night to smooth out any bumps or accidental tucks behind the ear. This was before dry shampoo was readily available, but a friend sent me a can from Europe. So I would spray it on and then venture out in to the world. I was a mess. Ha!

    It wasn’t until after I was able to wash my hair (4 days?) that my ends didn’t look flat and fried. I could use the curling iron or hot rollers to give it some wave and texture.

    This could explain why she has what looks like awkward attachments in the front. The oily, keratin covered scalp mixed with the flat ironing means that the hair will move in whatever direction it wants in that track looking way.

    God bless her. I was miserable going to the grocery store on those days. I can’t imagine going to an event like that.

    She looks sexy and beautiful here but it’s hard to see a bump because the colour of her clothes doesn’t stand out enough. If that basketball court can’t handle her walking on it they have a problem…

    Love the top, hate the heels – they look so out of place at a sports event. AJ is wearing black flats / ballerinas a lot and looks super-elegant. IMO they would also look good on Meghan.

    Stilettos and a £+2,000 Oscar De La Renta blouse for THIS event? lol They both should care to learn what the event they’re attending is about. It’s the bare minimum required.

    I have looked at many photos of her outfit and that is one over priced fug blouse…from any angle. And 4 inch heels to a sporting event? Does her staff even brief her on where she is going? But I’m outnumbered here….because every other post is raving about the outfit….sorry, it does not look good or appropriate..or more to the point, she does not look at all comfortable.

    Heels on a wood gymnasium floor. Every gym around where I live has signs. Sneakers only. Any other shoes have to be removed. A floor gets wrecked. Its common sense. Someone should have told her to wear appropriate footwear.

    Not feeling the navy-on-black + black pumps combo. Brighter top, bright shoes perhaps?
    Think what leaves me with the fashion mehs is texture: Very heavy fabric on top, light fabric on trousers… just not doing it for me. The patchy bronzer is forgiven.

    Overdressed and too serious looking. She is obviously very pretty though.

  44. Gem says:

    Pretty woman but I find her style very boring. Don’t get me wrong, she dresses appropriately and I’m not *demanding* amazing fashion from her, but would be fun to see.

    For those of you hoping Meghan is pregnant, please reflect – some of the areas she is traveling to on the tour are where Zika has broken out, if I’m not mistaken. I looked it up, and Zika can cause devastating defects at any stage of pregnancy, being past the first trimester will not protect you or baby.

    So, much as we all look forward to this, let’s hope she is not taking any risks! I think that if she were pregnant, they would have announced changes to the tour schedule to avoid those areas, or cancelled altogether.

    She has time! Better safe above all things!

    Everyone criticizing Meghan’s hair for one reason or another, do you understand textured hair? It is COMPLETELY AND TOTALLY different. If you look at a hair strand under a microscope, it is completely straight. For those with textured hair, it zigzags. so the oil from the scalp never makes it down to the ends.

    My girl has very kinky hair. It was like another person in the family. You could glance at it and cause tangles. The hair has a mind of it’s own.

    Meghans hair looks healthy and happy and is major part of her mojo. I think it’s natural so she HAS to have it constantly blown out. It doesn’t look chemically straightened. But I don’t know. She loves to touch and smoother her hair. So what? She has stepped into one of the most high profile stressful relationships out there and has already changed peoples lives.

    Like her adorable freckles and what everyone assumes is MAKEUP!, open your mind to her natural hair and viva la difference!

    Meghan’s outfit seemed appropriate given that she gave a speech and handed at an award.
