Meghan Markle Wore an Elegant Jason Wu LBD for Her First Red Carpet With Prince Harry


In her previous life as an actress, Meghan Markle might have gotten used to walking down red carpets, but now that she’s changed her career to being a duchess, there haven’t been quite as many of those events in her daily diary—although there’s still plenty of glamour built into the royal schedule, of course. But on Sunday, July 14, Markle attended The Lion King premiere in London with her husband Prince Harry on her arm, marking her first red carpet appearance with him and as a royal. An iconic moment to be sure—made even more so by a subsequent hug with Beyoncé—but what really caught our eye? The chic LBD she was wearing.

The elegant tea-length gown by Jason Wu Collection was minimalist and chic, featuring mesh paneling and sleeves with a black bodice and skirt. Markle wore the $2,450 dress, which is quickly selling out, with Aquazzura heels, a $2,300 satin Gucci clutch featuring a delicate butterfly clasp, and a sleek low bun.

Here’s a full-length look at her dress (and her and Prince Harry looking ridiculously happy):
