Meghan Markle brought classic elegance to Global Citizen Live last night in New York City’s Central Park.
The Duchess of Sussex took the stage with Prince Harry to advocate for global equity for COVID-19 vaccines, during the couple’s cross-country trip this week. For the occasion, she wore a white minidress by Valentino. The short-sleeved number featured white floral accents on its neckline, hem and sleeves, creating an instantly elegant ensemble. Markle paired the piece with minimal accessories, including a gold watch and bangle bracelet. When offstage, she layered her look with a black peacoat and black Lady Dior handbag.
When it came to shoes, Markle stuck to one of her go-to styles: pointed-toe pumps. Her Global Citizen Live pair appeared to feature black satin uppers, as well as stiletto heels totaling at least 3 inches in height. When paired with her dress, it elevated her look’s chic nature and versatility.
Global Citizen Live is an annual live broadcast held for 24 hours, which features events and performances by international artists to raise funds for poverty aid. This year’s event includes performances by Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Coldplay, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Lizzo, Lorde, Shawn Mendes and more. It also features appearances by numerous activists, philanthropists, corporate leaders and other figures working to aid in Global Citizen’s year-long Recovery Plan for the World campaign, which aims to end COVID-19 and the hunger crisis, as well as increase learning, environmental protection and global equity.
One of Markle’s go-to shoe styles is pointed-toe pumps, which she wears in neutral and tonal hues from Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Aquazzura and more top labels. When off-duty, her streamlined, versatile style also incorporates Valentino flats, Nike sneakers and Hunter boots.
