Well, well. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a gala event last night – a charity performance of Hamilton, the Tony Award-winning musical. The performance benefited Sentebale, Harry’s Lesotho charity. Meghan actually saw Hamilton on Broadway, and I totally hope she was leaning in to Harry and whispering, “You’re going to love this song” before “Right Hand Man” and “Satisfied.” I’ve always wondered what the British theater-goers’ reactions would be to a story of America’s birth and one of our most beloved forefathers, and I guess I’m still waiting. I bet Harry enjoyed it. Oh, and Lin-Manuel Miranda was there! He was introduced to Harry and Meg!
For this event, Meghan went with a sexy look, all-business up top and then a party below the waist. This tuxedo dress is by the Canadian label Judith and Charles, which retails for $595, which is pretty affordable for a classic tuxedo dress if you’re a duchess. I like it… but I don’t think it’s the absolute best thing she’s ever worn. Still, I do really like it. I prefer her with a longer hemline, not because of the patriarchy and “policing women’s bodies through fashion” or whatever, I just think knee-length or tea-length hemlines suit her figure the best. Still, she has legs for days and if she’s going to wear something a bit shorter, I’m glad she did it this way, with a smart, sharp tuxedo dress.
