The dress, which appears to be black, is a creation by Roland Mouret, one of the Duchess’ go-to designers. Not a lot of time has passed since the event when the royal mom-to-be turned heads again with her breathtaking looks, but the color of her outfit hasn’t changed.
Lady in black
On Monday, the Duchess made a memorable debut as she appeared at the Royal Variety Performance for the first time. Meghan glittered and sparkled in a dazzling bustier top covered in light-reflecting sequins, which formed a beautiful leaf pattern.
The Duchess combined the top with a long black maxi skirt that made the outfit look very elegant and formal. The top and skirt are by London-based designer Safiyaa, whom she first wore during her royal tour in Fiji.
The 37-year-old decided that she didn’t have enough sparkle, so she completed her look with what appears to be her favorite diamond earrings from Canadian brand Birks.
Even though Meghan looked undoubtedly beautiful, many wonder why she wears black so much. And here's what one expert thinks about that.
The reason behind the color
Color psychologist Karen Heller revealed her opinion about why the Duchess of Sussex likes to wear black. She said that Meghan is possibly choosing this color to hide from the spotlight.
Whilst black has many different traits, looking at these specific events she attended, they all have one thing in common. The occasions when she is choosing to wear black suggest she isn’t seeking to be the center of attention. Black is her way to deflect attention off herself and onto the causes she is supporting – putting them in the spotlight.
This totally makes sense, doesn’t it? She wants all the attention to be on the causes that are close to her heart, not on her outfit, and that deserves some respect.
