Duchess Meghan wears a Room 502 shirtdress for an ActionAid event

Here are photos from the Duchess of Sussex’s second event today in Johannesburg. She visited Action Aid for another conversation, this one about gender-based violence. This follows her trip to the memorial of the murdered 19-year-old Cape Town student, Uyinene Mrwetyana, last week. Meghan is actively pursuing work in domestic violence prevention and violence against women. It would not surprise me at all if Meghan takes on a few new patronages with these issues when she gets back to the UK.

Meghan had a few hours off in between her visit to the university earlier in the day and this event. So she changed out of that Banana Republic trench-dress and into yet another shirtdress – this one is by Room 502. She’s been wearing a lot of pieces in the same beige/muddy/olive-brown family. Did someone tell her that those were good colors for her? Because… they are not. To be fair though, of all the shirtdresses we’ve seen on this tour, this is one of the better ones.

I didn’t get around to posting the photos from Meghan’s trip to Victoria Yards in Johannesburg yesterday, because there weren’t a lot of photos (it was an unannounced visit). She met with artisans and designers and she picked up a pair of jeans. She wore the Aritzia “Wilfred” dress in blue, which retails for $148.

    I like this dress wayyyyy better than that Banana Republic one. She’s glowing.

    • Bella Bella says:

      Regarding the color palette she’s been wearing, wasn’t it Celebitchy who theorized that the plan was to dress in fairly nondescript clothes to keep the focus on the issues she was bringing to public awareness? Makes sense to me.

      • Flying Fish says:

        I like both dresses. And, that this point her clothing is secondary, its about the work.
        With that being said, we all love a good chat about fashion and I must say that I like everything she has worn so far. The olive dress from last week was a bit ifffy only because of the fit. Olive green is making a come back and I love it.

        At least she looks appropriate given what she is there to do.

    • minx says:

      Same, better than the BR dress.

  2. Isa says:

    I think the color of the dress looks good on her, but NAF of the material that looks wrinkly.

  3. lily says:

    the problem is the outfits are TOO relaxed.

    • Mignionette says:

      I disagree and urge you to look at Anne and Sophie’s outfits. The issue is that Meg is relaxed and un-stuffy as per her natural disposition….

    • Megan says:

      It appears to be a bit too small, which contributes to the wrinkling. The cut of this dress does absolutely nothing for her figure.

  4. lana86 says:

    Donnow I love this color, and good on her

    • WTW says:

      Don’t mind the dress, but the black satiny shoes don’t go well with it. Should have worn a neutral shade in a different texture with it.

  5. little bird says:

    that aritzia dress is *chef’s kiss* i love it, esp with the bright shoes

  6. Redgrl says:

    I really like the longer navy blue dress – the red shoes with it is a cute accent. Fashion aside, I am really impressed with the causes she has focused on. She seems knowledgeable and prepared too which is refreshing!

  7. DaggerIsle says:

    Love that blue dress. The bright shoes look fab with it.

    I don’t think all those belted dresses/coats she wears are very flattering on her.
    She needs a more tailored look.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I like the blue dress too! IMHO, the one row of small buttons vertically down the front make her look taller and thinner as there is no horizontal line breaking her in two.

      This dress is very slimming on her, shows that she actually has a waist and shows her waist is not big.

    • MissyLynne says:

      LOVE the Rothy’s flats. The red does add a nice pop to the navy dress. I think she was trying not to stand out too much with all the muted drab colors. However she looks so beautiful when she wears a color that actually suits her.

    • Penguin says:

      I really want those red shoes.

      I agree tailored is better on her. Somehow I prefer her in separates or dresses without a sash/belt

    • Lady2Lazy says:

      Don’t forget she is still carrying some baby weight and she needs some extra room in the mid section. I can’t believe Archie is 4 months but he is adorable! Plus I loved the dress that she wore when they met the Archbishop Desmond Tutu. And the Archbishop seems to be a baby magnet as Archie was all giggles and kicking his legs when the Archbishop was talking to him. She has looked lovely, except the BR dress, plus she looked uncomfortable in that dress in that she kept her hand placed on the dress portion under the buttons to keep the dress from getting caught in the wind.
      Though, I am glad that she is trying hard to create a connection with women in Africa and address the injustices and the inequality that it happening there. When I read about that university student was tortured and raped and left on the street, it sickened me to my core. I also think I read that she had visited the post office and was lured back in, but I am not sure about that.

  8. bonobochick says:

    I am fine with the relaxed clothing. This tour isn’t about fashion. She is drawing attention to conversations about empowerment, education, and femicide / gender violence. Looking at all her events so far, a glam look isn’t warranted.

    That said, I think she has been glowing at every event and that is the best look of all on her.

    Also, Harry has also been working relaxed clothing and embracing khaki & earth tones.

    • Nina Simone says:

      I agree with her sentiment. But I’m looking around and still no one is even talking about these issues because of her. They are discussing her drab clothing. It’s ironic because Michelle Obama recognized that despite all her work – her clothing would be the most talked about. So she chose to highlight issues via what she wore. I think Meghan should have worn more clothing inspired by and made by black South Africans. Idk I’m just underwhelmed I don’t think this was well thought out. Missed opportunity. And I say this as an African woman, we love clothes, we love colors. It’s a little patronizing that she chose to “go muted”. On the contrary we’d love to see fashion!

      • Lorelei says:

        The thing is, this is a gossip site. Quite a few of the posts here are about fashion and many of us enjoy discussing it. It’s why I visit this site so frequently; talking about clothing is a nice escape from the horrors of the world.

        There are countless news outlets covering the tour that don’t mention the clothing at all. I will never understand why people complain about those of us discussing Meghan’s style in a fashion post on a celebrity gossip website.

      • Melissa says:

        Beyond the gossip sites I think it’s working. For example, even What Meghan Wore is writing 75% of each post on her work and the orgs she visits, and then a couple sentences about the clothes when it used to be the other way round.

      • blue36 says:

        Meghan usually goes for a muted colour palette because that’s what she prefers. She rarely wears bright colours.

      • Lisa says:

        I love the South African brand MAXHOSA and am hoping to one day buy one of their cardigans. Would be so cool if Meghan wore one! I actually really like the BR dress, this one not as much.

        I love Michelle Obama’s style and always thought it was so smart to highlight lesser known designers.

    • ShazBot says:

      I agree – I think she’s trying to NOT make it about fashion – whether that’s working or not is not in her control, but by picking fairly basic pieces and lots of repeats, I think she’s trying to keep it on the topic, which is admirable.

      I did love her red flats with the navy dress.

  9. M. says:

    I think Meghan has looked beautiful and appropriate throughout this entire tour. I’m side eyeing a lot of the extremely negative comments. I think it’s safe to assume that some of the criticisms I’m seeing about Meghan’s body are from women of a certain demographic who are not used to seeing curvy bodies in the royal family.

    • DaggerIsle says:

      Not really- it’s about body shape, not curves. Camilla is not a slight woman but she always tailors her outfits beautifully.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      M., No post that I have read (here at CB) has been negative about Meghan’s curves. The criticism presented in most of the posts here at Celebitchy is that Meghan does not (or her stylist does not) know how to dress her curves to show them off to their best advantage. Royals are expected to look the best they can look at all times when in public as they are given plenty $$$ to do such; Fair or not, this is just the way it is.

    • Marigold says:

      That’s a super reach. First of all, I’d hardly categorize Meghan as curvy. She’s post baby but still incredibly petite. I think much of her clothing issues stem from dressing as though she were tall. She has a short torso and does not tailor or select clothes that flatter that all the time.

    • LadyJax says:

      I agree with the vitriol about her body (on the web in general, not here.) I think people forget there are plenty of women in the BRF who aren’t size zeroes.

      That said, Meghan is not an especially curvy woman. Granted, body shapes and proportions change in pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood. I don’t think it’s out of line to speculate on the possibility of baby 2 being on the way when she currently looks like she did early in her pregnancy with Archie. In a great way! She’s absolutely glowing.

    • Lina says:

      Lmao WHAT????? Meghan is skinny as hell. She has a nice butt but other than she’s regular skinny. Gtfo with that “curvy” nonsense.

      • DaggerIsle says:

        Once again, it’s not about curves/curvy. It’s about body shape, as everyone keeps repeating.
        She looks lovely and glowing, but often wears stuff that is too big/not super flattering for her morphology.

        In the same way people comment about Kate wearing stuff that make her legs look short- it’s nothing to do with weight!

        Can’t we comment on fashion without being haters?

    • minx says:

      Disagree, this is a very Meghan friendly site and I haven’t seen any body shaming. We have been critiquing her fashion.

      • MsIam says:

        Baloney on the no body shaming here, there is plenty. Or maybe you actually thought all those “Meghan looks good with the extra weight” comments were considered flattery? FYI it’s about as flattering as saying “You look pretty for a fat girl!” . If it’s body shaming to say Kate looks too skinny, then stop with the extra weight on Meghan stuff too. Btw, not saying you are a part of the “extra weight” bunch, just commenting in general.

      • Lorelei says:

        I think context is important here though. If someone who is a regular poster here with a history of liking Meghan, I think it’s fine if they say, for example, they’re not crazy about the way a particular dress fits her. It’s completely different from psychotic racists in the DM comments.

    • HK9 says:

      Meghan isn’t curvy-she’s a skinny girl. I simply think you need to find what’s right for you. Generally most of her outfits look great on her. While she loves trenches, double breasted look makes her look wide when she’s not. Single breasted is a better look on her.

    • noway says:

      Please, are you kidding me? I wouldn’t call Meghan curvy. Sure she’s a bit bigger after the baby, but hardly curvy. Also, aside from Kate and Diana which royal has/had a thin body? Beatrice, Eugenie, Sophie, Anne, The Queen, Camilla? Come on? (Let’s be honest with Kate and Diana. Diana we know had an eating disorder, and people accuse Kate of that all the time-not fair, but probably due to Diana a bit. Plus both women are/were close to 6′ tall)

      Now I don’t mind this dress as much, but it is a bit wrinkly type of dress, which just by its nature bugs me. I want to get her an iron. I do like the navy blue dress and the red flats a lot. I do have a question with all these shirt dresses with belts. Why do they seem to belt right under her breasts? This one is much better, but a lot of them aren’t. I realize she is short waisted, but when she is wearing jeans and a shirt and tucked in it doesn’t look like this and so weird. I wish the belts would come down a bit further. Not many dresses look good on anyone with belts right under the breast, unless you have very small breasts. Plus she’s 5’6″ which isn’t really short, and it makes her look so short. Positive, again her hair is amazing!!!!!

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Meghan is very short-waisted. This is why her belts seem to sit right under her breasts. She also has a more rectangular torso (always has, not just since she had Archie). Kate is the opposite: she has a long torso, which is why when she wears something belted, she puts a belt higher than her *natural* waist, and we all comment on how the outfit seems too “short” on her torso.

        BOTH women need to wear styles that are tailored for THEIR particular body shapes, and hire an on-staff tailor that can properly adjust what they want to wear.

      • MsIam says:

        Blame the manufacturer then. I have the same issue with belted dresses which is why I don’t wear them much. They all seem to be made for women with a long torso and no boobs. And that is so not me. I think Meghan pulls it off as well as anyone who doesn’t have that lean body type.

    • Millenial says:

      I’m with you. I called out a comment about her not dressing in a “flattering” way and everyone jumped down my throat about it. Forget the fact that “not flattering” has long been used a code-speak for that outfit makes you look fat/old/whatever and you need to choose something that hides your “flaws.”

      And dear god if one more commenter says she looks pregnant again…. she had a baby 4 months ago! I’ve had two babies much longer ago than that and if we go by this sites’ standards, people on this site would definitely say I look pregnant! It’s like people have never seen a woman’s body after growing a baby. I know some women bounce back in 2-3 months, but that is not the average experience I would say.

      • Amy Too says:

        I am absolutely with you regarding “flattering” and I’m surprised that people don’t see it as the more subtle way of saying “she looks fat.” Honestly, I didn’t think about much until I did, though, and now I can’t stop seeing “flattering” as the new and acceptable body-shaming.

        It’s like people are saying “I know she’s not fat but she looks fat and that’s a problem.” I think they’re also basing their assumption of her actual weight/body shape on the outfits that are the “most flattering,” the outfits that are cut in such a way, or worn with the right undergarments, or just photographed from the right angle in the right light to give an illusion of someone being thinner/taller than they are. If 8/10 outfits she’s wearing are “unflattering” because they’re making her “look wider/shorter than she is,” then maybe it’s not the clothes that are actually making her body LOOK wider/shorter, maybe that’s just what her body looks like in clothes right now. And that’s fine. But this insistence that she shouldn’t wear what she likes, or what’s comfortable, or what fits, or is convenient because her clothes need to first and foremost be “flattering,” makes me angry. Flattering generally equals making one look “better” proportioned, thinner, and taller, hiding any “flaws” (which are usually the lumpier or wider parts of someone) accentuating their “best parts” (which always seem to be their smallest part).

        When people say things like “this dress is unflattering because the belt makes her stomach look wide,” I want to just ask them to take that one step further. Like “okay, but why is it bad to look like she has a wide stomach?”

      • blue36 says:

        @Amy Too – you make some excellent points, I’ve never thought about it that way. Unfortunately this is down to the faults of the fashion industry itself, they promote these kinds of messages, I remember watching what not to wear on TLC and those are the exact comments I used to hear from the hosts of the show – that a dress or pant looks good because it makes you look taller, slimmer, accentuates this part.

      • sunshine gold says:

        Eh…I think it’s a bit of an overreach. I’m short with a large chest and sometimes I try on clothes that are not flattering for my body type. That’s facts! It’s not that I’m fat, it just doesn’t work for my figure. “Not flattering” can just mean that – it doesn’t have to be “codespeak” for anything.

  10. HeyThere! says:

    She’s glowing!!!! Motherhood looks good on her!!

  11. Erinn says:

    MUCH better! This is what I mean when I say the other look was off proportionately. The belt, buttons and collar overpowered her. While this isn’t my favorite Meghan look, there’s not really anything wrong with it.

    I feel like she’s into the ‘safari colors’ if that makes sense. It’s a bit themey, but it seems like she’s gone full tilt into the olive, camel, tan, beige type shades on this trip.

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t think it’s intentionally theme-y – i think it’s more that Meghan leans into one color family at a time it feels like. Remember on the tour last year when she wore a ton of navy blue and black. And there are a few other examples that I can’t remember off the cuff right now, but I know people often say “I’m sick of seeing her in X color” and then she changes it up again for a few months. I’m not sure why she does it but it’s a definite pattern.

      • Erinn says:

        Oh absolutely! I think it’s a mainly subconscious thing – she goes full tilt into a color scheme that speaks to her at the time, and I kind of dig it in a way. Even if I don’t always love the colors. I sort of love that about her in a way … it’s a cute little quirky thing that’s sort of endearing tbh.

        I could easily see myself doing something similar, if I had the resources she had.

        One good thing about that though, is that when it comes to separates she’s all set. She’ll have tons of color palettes to work from and mix up at will.

        I also don’t hate the muted neutrals, really. Some are hit and miss, but I personally like her in the olive green type tones. But my absolute favorite that I’ve seen her in was probably that purpley berry kind of shade. I think she had a top/tunic/dress as well as a (wool?) coat in that shade, and I found it SO flattering on her. But I’m biased because I like how I look in that color as well haha. A dark teal/peacock was really nice on her as well…there was an outfit where she wore a cream colored top, a beigey coat, and a peacock teal skirt that REALLY knocked it out of the park.

        I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of pumped that it’s cooling off because I love her jackets.

      • Penguin says:

        I think she likes green, there was the fab green skirt in Ireland and the green leather skirt in Sussex, both of which looks I loved on her. This khaki green suits her less well than a more jewel toned green.

  12. Ib says:

    I think neutrals look lovely on her. This post is a bit bitchy

  13. The green dress just doesn’t fit, the fabric wrinkles easily and those pocket flaps are tragic.
    The blue with the red shoes (look like Rothys) is just perfect and I want one.
    Fashion aside, she looks fantastic and very fresh with minimal make up. I am also suffering major hair envy.

    • Bethany Karger says:

      I totally agree. Unlike most of Meghan’s clothing, I think this dress is too small. It’s pulling across her bust and even her thighs. And it looks like the sleeves are digging into her arm pits. She isn’t a big person but this dress just doesn’t fit, in my humble opinion.

    • noway says:

      The cut of the blue dress is far more flattering on her than a lot of things she has worn on this trip.

      • Penguin says:

        I think the sleek tailoring of the Everlane jumpsuit was best. Pair that with the red shoes and That would be perfection.

        The fabrics in this dress doesn’t photograph well, and unfortunately on tour photos matter

  14. TheOriginalMia says:

    Love both of these dresses, especially the blue one with those cute red flats.

    I’m with you, Kaiser. I bet she will take on some new patronages.

    When she visited Victoria Yards, she picked up a pair of jeans she had ordered 3 weeks ago. The designer had a pair of dungarees for Archie as well. Squee! I hope we see them both in their jeans.

  15. Kittycat says:

    Wilfred is a brand that the store Aritzia carries! That dress is just called the “Shirt Dress”. Aritzia carries a lot of Wilfred clothing. One thing I love about Aritiza is their clothing is ethically sourced and I love that Meghan supports ethically sourced clothing!

  16. Tanguerita says:

    the sartorial fugliness galore continues unabated…

  17. Jan says:

    The khaki/olive/beige colors don’t suit most people but they definitely look good on her.

    As for the more relaxed style…I do like that the focus is on the causes not her dresses or what they cost.

    • toro says:

      i think that is a bit silly. so, when she does wear designer clothes ( and we know she will because of her position and girl loves designer) is because she does not care about those causes? she can’t win, so i would like for her to just embreace that she is super mega rich and dress acordingly

      • Jan says:

        It’s not silly at all. When you want the focus of the headlines to be on what you said and not what you wore, this is the way to go. I never said wearing designer meant she didn’t care about the causes. I said that I liked the more relaxed style and that people aren’t harping on her clothes and their cost. Don’t put words in my mouth.

  18. LW says:

    I love this shirt dress and I think this particular shade of green looks really good on her!

  19. Skyblue121 says:

    I don’t care what she wears. What I care about and enjoy looking at is the good will and kindness she projects. She seems like a truly lovely person.

  20. DS9 says:

    I like this color and I like this color on her.

  21. RoyalBlue says:

    She looks great in this one.

    Duchess Wathu, Duchess Wamayankho. Our Duchess, Duchess with Solutions.

  22. Lina says:

    This is a nice color. The writer on this website doesn’t seem to understand clothes at all?

  23. Maddie23 says:

    Dislike. I hate all these shirt dresses. I don’t think they look flattering on anyone. She could wear something so much better!!!!

  24. Silas says:

    Brighter color, for the love of little apples! Enough with the dull tones.

    She is going over the top with this just as Kate goes over the top with the coat dresses and little girl looks and big hair and high heels. Balance, please.

    Price is great. But don’t dress to disappear. It feels a bit performative rather than natural. Not all the outfits have felt that way though but the umpteenth trench dress or all the green dresses have felt that way.

  25. Other Renee says:

    I usually don’t like her fashion choices and I think she’s been tone deaf in wearing ridiculously expensive clothing on a regular basis. However, I have really been impressed with what she’s been wearing on this particular tour. I appreciate that she’s trying to keep the focus where it belongs: on the causes they are there to support. I actually like this dress as well as the beige one although beige is really not her color.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Huh. Do you find Kate to be equally as tone deaf with her bespoke Alexander McQueen coat dresses in every color?

      • Other Renee says:

        Valiantly, did I mention Kate at any point in my post? No, I did not. Therefore your comment is completely extra.

      • MsIam says:

        Didn’t you know @Valiantly the Queen made Meghan the Duchess of Budget, not the Duchess of Sussex? No nice home or expensive clothing for her! It’s not like she’s a member of the royal family or anything.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Other Renee Hence I asked the question hun. Im asking you if you find Kate to be just as tone deaf or is it only Meghan?

      • Gingerbread says:

        I think people can criticize Meghan about her fashion choices without having to bring up Kate. It gets exhausting.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        @Gingerbread yes. It IS exhausting. I cant imagine how Meghan feels.

  26. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Based on these critiques I guess my own wardrobe wouldn’t pass your test. I love olive tones and I love a good shirtdress. She looks fine to me.

    • MellyMel says:

      Same! I love shirt dresses and my fashion color palette is similar to Meg’s…mostly neutrals and pops of greens and blues. The majority of what she wears, I have something similar in my closet or want in my closet.

  27. Becks1 says:

    I’ll continue to be in the minority and say that I liked this dress a lot too. I’m tempted to go back and see who liked Kate’s fugly dress for the flower show and see how it compares to Meghan’s current outfits. By that meaning – different styles for different people. Meghan obviously loves trenches and shirt dresses, especially on tours for some reason. But I think she looks good here n

    So far the only dress I have disliked when I look back is the dress she wore the first day, which I liked at the time but don’t like it looking back.

  28. MellyMel says:

    I love both looks, but I want that blue dress…so pretty!

    ETA: The dress is sold out in blue, but they have other colors!

  29. Lily says:

    I love her tour looks and hope to see more of her and baby Archie :)

  30. Lia says:

    To me her fashion as of late seems to be breastfeeding and/or pumping friendly clothes. I would like for her to add more color but she loves her neutrals

  31. Cheyenne moore says:

    Wanted to point out that she’s probably wearing all the shirt dresses because she’s breastfeeding and needs easy access. Comfort and Practicality are a new mom must!

  32. MsIam says:

    I like this dress too. And I like her laid back style for this trip. Overly fussy clothes would have been pretentious. She looks like someone dressed business casual and modern. Some people are acting like she showed up wearing jeans and flip flops everywhere. Btw, those red shoes are the best!

  33. Valerie says:

    I have a new theory…I think she might be following (very generally) Princess Anne’s style book. Dress professionally, respectably, comfortably, but not glammy in any way. In other words, don’t stand out. At the same time she’s paying attention to designers, environmental concerns, and all the other stuff that promotes fashion generally. Anne has a great reputation for working hard, which Megan seems determined to do as well, but no one has ever called her a clothes horse. Megan can’t be lambasted for outshining anyone if she always looks meh.

  34. aPathologist says:

    As someone who had a baby within the past year, I understand the shirt dresses and think they look nice. If she’s still breastfeeding, the buttons allow for that to be done without much fuss. For the first six months, it felt like my body shape was changing almost daily. The cut of these dresses allows her some room to be comfortable while creating a nice and professional silhouette. I think the colors are nice too.

  35. velvet72 says:

    People who are criticizing her clothes must never have had to breast feed a baby. At 4 to 5 months old a baby is still feeding quite frequently and she will need to quickly have access for feeding and pumping between engagements. It makes total sense that all of her clothes so far are button front or wraps. She is doing what any breast feeding mom does but unfortunately she has to do it on a huge stage.

    • Yoyo says:

      When visiting Archbishop Tutu, there is a picture of Archie trying to snuggle up to the milk source, and Meghan turning him around and putting him to stand.

  36. Augustbug says:

    I suspect all these trench, shirtdress, wrap dresses might be because she’s nursing and they’re easier to wear when you’re breastfeeding.

  37. A says:

    She looks so, so good. Even the outfits that are supposedly “bad.” I honestly can’t see it. I don’t think I have great taste, but she’s just been looking great no matter what she’s worn lately.

  38. Le4Frimaire says:

    Yeah not crazy abound the bland clothes and would like a good analysis of that. Think the press criticism of her wardrobe spending hit her hard, and her team was giving her not so great advice on this to mute that criticism. Very deliberate on price points and repeat outfits. She looks nice but missing her usual flair and edge. Could have worn more flattering pieces. Best looks were the print dress from first event, jumpsuit and Bishop Tutu dress. Also liked the stripe maxi dress. Wish she had worn more trousers. She looks polished in them and they flatter her. Those with a wrap top would have looked better. She could have worn a nice skirt suit to an event as well, and tunic with skirt/ loose pants to mosque. She is wearing a lot of American brands &think she could have worn some similar looks from British brands, or more African/ diaspora labels. These khaki and olive shirt dresses look a bit too safari for my taste and a little too casual. Wish she would switch up the neutrals and wear a few brighter colors and prints going forward. However, she gets so much unfair criticism so get why she went with the understated looks, even if not keen on it. We’ll get glam some other time or occasion. Work wise she and Harry have done an amazing job & brought attention to so many important issues and worthy causes. They are prepared and passionate. Love them on this trip!

    LOVE the navy with the bright shoes! I actually don’t mind the olive dress either, just wish it wasn’t so wrinkly.

    I’ve been trying not to praise women for how they look, but for what they do. Meghan has chosen very important issues for this trip, seems to be engaged with the groups she meets, and basically looks like an effect ambassador. I hope she does keep up involvement in these types of issues (violence against women) because it is a universal problem, and deserves a higher profile. I think Meghan’s is doing a fantastic public relations job.

    Fashion wise her looks have been disappointing on this trip. The best outfits were the black jumpsuit and this navy blue dress with the buttons.
    Although I understand from Celebitchy that this tour is about the issues not the clothes it’s a shame she couldn’t have found some more professional less wrinkled looks. We all manage it everyday it’s bit that hard!

      She is trying to keep down spending. Disappointing is a good way to describe it. No colourful sparkle there.

  42. Captain Obvious says:

    1. Meghan is white or she is trying to be white.
    2. Hair-in-the-face issues.
    3. Violence against women? What about violence against men? Or children? Do you think a wife beater doesn’t beat the kids? It should be about abolishing domestic violence. Not just about women.

    • MsIam says:

      Are you for real? Meghan is white or trying to be white but she announced first thing that she is a woman of color? Yeah, ok. As far as your rambling about domestic violence, seriously? They just had a huge protest about the number of women being murdered in SA and demanding action from the government. Does that mean they are not against men being murdered as well? If you got all of that from this past week of the tour then you should change your name to Oblivious.

    • Joanna says:

      Uh, she is white. And black. She doesn’t have to pick a side boo boo. And what does that mean, trying to be white anyway?

    • Lorelei says:

      LMAO, this is the Comment of the Week for sure, but not in the way you’d hope, Captain Obvious

    She’s so pretty that she doesn’t need to be dressed up, similar to Angelina Jolie, who I’m not a personal fan of, the clothes don’t much matter.

    Omg I want this dress!! Too bad I can’t afford it, lol.

  45. Texas says:

    I think she is absolutely beautiful inside and out! She is a tiny person and just has a baby! She looks amazing! That being said, after you have a baby, your body changes and what looked great before baby may not work as well after. I know for me that I just had to toss a lot of clothes that never fit right again. On the other hand, she still looks amazing. I just don’t like the dress style on her. They seem to be bulky and and overwhelming her petite frame.

  46. Rina says:

    The navy blue dress is beautiful. The pop of color with the flats is appeasing.

  47. Leigh says:

    I’m truly disappointed by how critical some supposed Meghan supporters have been of late. Never mind the fact that Meg is four/five months postpartum, a bunch of supposed feminists should not be so quick to judge a woman for failing to meet some bull$hit western standards of beauty. Apparently, we can only support other women whom we deem to be perfect and lacking in any physical flaws whatsoever?! Some of you will say that it’s simply about your love of fashion but you know that it’s more than that. SMGDH….

    I love the dresses. I love the design and colors. Im going to buy the trench and the green shirt dress. Maybe the black in a different color. I love that they are quite affordable. I hope she keeps this up i.e. shopping in affordable clothing stores.
