AQUAZZURA: Meghan debuted her royal life in Aquazzura, wearing the brand’s Matilde Crisscross Suede Pump at her engagement announcement photocall, and has since worn the brand at other high profile events. Founded by Colombian-born Edgardo Osorio, the Italian-based luxury footwear brand is known in the industry for representing comfort as well as style. Aquazzura often offers a style in a number of heel heights, as well as a vast array of flats.
Meghan’s been a fan of the brand since well before her relationship with Prince Harry, though, and a few of their designs featured in the almost-infamous June 2016 ‘shoedrobe’ photo Meghan posted to Instagram some time ago. The designer spoke to The Daily Mail in a piece about the image —
She likes strappy, sophisticated, sexy shoes, which is very much our style. Her look tends to be elegant, simple and sleek, and she always accentuates with a beautiful pair of shoes. In the picture of her shoe wardrobe, I counted at least six of our pairs — including the £420 “Matilde” suede stilettos, the £600 “Amazon” sandals and the £490 “Wild Thing” fringed sandals. It’s wonderful she enjoys wearing them.”
At the Royal Foundation Forum with Harry, William and Kate, Meghan sported the label again with a sleeveless Jason Wu dress.
Attending the Womens Empowerment Reception during the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings, Meghan wore the Aquazzura Milano Cut-Out Suede pumps in black.
UPDATE: The newly minted Duchess of Sussex continued her love of the brand at her wedding, with Meghan wearing a custom pair of blue-soled pumps with her Stella McCartney reception gown.
The young bridesmaids all donned custom Aquazzura shoes, embroidered with their initials and the wedding date, as a gift from the bride. Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, also wore shoes from the brand on the day.
MANOLO BLAHNIK: The Spain-born, Britain-based designer founded his eponymous label in the 70s, and has been a favourite of Meghan for some time. She has happily given the brand a strong showing in her royal career thus far: in late April 2018, Meghan wore Blahnik’s BB pumps (retail $625.00 USD) for four separate engagements in the space of a week. The iconic shoe, launched in 2008 and named for Brigitte Bardot, is available in a range of leathers, colours and heel heights. Meghan owns the beige, black and navy suede BB’s. They look to be a wardrobe staple for Meghan, and we anticipate seeing them for years to come.
Speaking to FootwearNews.com, Blahnik said —
It is a great honor and joy to have my shoes worn by such a beautiful young lady. Meghan is well on her way to becoming a style icon of the 21st century.”

SENTALER: Meghan has been wearing this Canadian brand since 2014; she is said to have learned about the label when living in Toronto while filming Suits. Founded in 2009 by Bojana Sentaler, the company’s Peruvian alpaca coats and sweaters are immediately recognizable by the signature ribbed detailing on the sleeves.
Meghan has quite a few styles by Sentaler; below we show some of them: on the far left, the Long Wide-Collar Wrap Coat in camel ($1295 USD), Meghan also has worn this in black and true blue; next, the Long Hooded Wrap Coat in black ($1595 USD); the Long Fitted Coat with Tie in charcoal grey ($on sale 943 USD), and on the far right, the Royal Baby Alpaca Wrap in sand grey ($320 USD).
