Meghan Wears Shoshanna for Polo Match
We had a lovely surprise today, new photos of Meghan watching Prince Harry take part in the Audi Polo Cup. The Duchess looked cool and comfortable despite the 80°+ temps at the polo grounds.
More from the Daily Mail’s story:
The Duke of Sussex delighted polo fans for the second day on the trot as he wowed spectators alongside his brother.
He and Prince William enjoyed some brotherly bonding as they took to the turf at the Coworth Park Polo Club.
Prince Harry’s appearance today comes after he thrilled sports fans at a charity match in Oxfordshire yesterday.
Also watching the match, friends Serena Williams and her husband Alexis Ohanian.
You may recall the couple were guests at Meghan and Harry’s wedding; these are photos the tennis ace posted on her Instagram account the morning of the wedding.
Ms. Williams is only a few days from the opening rounds of Wimbledon, where she hopes to be the first mother to win the tournament since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1980.
More about the match from Hello!:
The high society sporting event was supporting two charities close to the royals’ hearts – Child Bereavement UK and Tusk Trust. The Princes’ team, Audi e-tron, was the ultimate winner by 5 goals to 2.
Now for our look at what Meghan wore, beginning with her dress by Shoshanna, an American brand.
For anyone unfamiliar with the company, it was started in 1998 by Shoshanna Gruss, a native New Yorker.
Initially launched with a dress collection, the company grew and became known for offering the first swimwear line that was sold as separates. More than 70% of Shoshanna styles are made in New York. Below, several designs from the Spring 2018 collection. The brand is carried at many major retailers, including Saks, along with Anthropologie, as well as Lord and Taylor, and Shopbop.
You can also find styles on sale at off-price outlets like 6pm.com and Neiman Marcus Last Call. Below, three discounted designs at Saks Off Fifth. Now for a closer look at the design worn by the Duchess today. It is the Ashland style, crafted in a cotton eyelet fabric with a taupe gingham print. (I think the official color name is “sand.”) It has an A-line silhouette, button front and self-tying belt at the waist. The piece is still available at Amazon in sizes 4 and 6 ($395). Many thanks to UFO No More for their identification of the dress; they also pointed out on Twitter the dress dates back to 2017.
Below left you see a similar fabric used in another dress style, this one a multi-color vertical stripe. On the right, you can see the same fabric was used for a dress stocked at Anthropologie.
Meghan wore her Madewell Biltmore Panama hat, a piece she has owned for some time.
Biltmore was originally a premium Canadian brand. Named after the Biltmore Hotel, the company is now headquartered in Texas, where all of its hats are still made by hand.The Duchess was in shoes by one of her go-to footwear brands, Sarah Flint, as confirmed by the company on its Instagram page. She wore the Grear Sandal ($245), in brown leather with a cotton ankle tie that can be tied in either the front or the back.
This was a nice look for Meghan, an ideal choice for a warm, humid day.
It looks like Meghan was wearing her Mykita ‘Priscilla’ sunglasses as well yesterday. This is a pair she has owned for sometime and was seen wearing at Wimbledon 2016.
