Meghan Markle Embraces Traditional Moroccan Style in Champagne Dior Dress and Heels

Leave it to Meghan Markle to upstage the Oscars.

Hours ahead of the big awards show, the 37-year-old pulled off one of her most glamorous looks yet today as she stepped out to a reception hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco, Thomas Reilly, in Rabat.

The former actress wore a custom Dior gown designed to resemble a kaftan — a traditional style embraced by many Moroccan women. Markle’s dress featured crystal embellishment at the sleeves and cape-like draping at the neck.

For shoes, the Duchess of Sussex selected gold pumps also created by the French house. The elegant shoes had a pointed toe and stiletto heel.

The Northwestern University grad pulled her look together with diamond-covered Birks Snowstorm earrings and a satin Dior D-Bee clutch. She wore her hair in a sleek updo.

Standing by his pregnant wife’s side, Prince Harry was dapper in a navy suit and dark leather shoes.

The duke and duchess began their day with a trip to Asni Town, for which they donned far more casual outfits.

Markle looked chic in a navy Alice + Olivia collarless blazer, which she wore over a black shirt and skinny jeans. The ex-“Suits” star chose black Birdies slippers — which retail for under $200 — to complete her dressed-down ensemble.
