Meghan wore ‘big deal’ designer dress during Suits days but she claimed it was ‘too short’

 is a  icon with impeccable taste. In 2012, the Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a Diane von Furstenberg creation that she claimed was a “big deal” for her at the time.

Since entering the royal spotlight, Meghan has stepped out in some gorgeous looks, from coat dresses to capes, blazers to ballgowns.

However, she was just as glamorous during her Suits days, unafraid to experiment with the trends.

At a USA Network event in 2012, the then-actress opted for the very flattering Zarita mini dress by Diane von Furstenberg.

It was a tight fit, navy blue lace number with scalloped edges and three-quarter sleeves.

The dress was very short, unlike the kind of dresses she later wore when representing the Royal Family.

However, she wasn’t actually a huge fan of the look, as revealed in a conversation with Glamour.

Meghan told the magazine in 2017: “I was going to this event and there was this DVF lace dress with a zipper up the back, and it was so fitted, and had tea length sleeves.

“Even buying a DVF dress was a big deal, and I bought one in navy and black.


“It was too tight, and too short, and my hair was too polished, and everything about it was trying too hard.”

Nevertheless, she looked stunning, pairing the look with nude pumps boasting a red sole, possibly Christian Louboutin.

Jewellery was kept to a minimum, with just a chic gold charm bracelet and a statement ring.

Despite later saying her hair was “too polished”, the now Duchess looked lovely with big, bouncy curls.

As for makeup, this was evening glam, complete with blusher, pink shimmer lipstick and dark, smokey eyes.

She looked to be wearing a subtle off-white or pearl-coloured nail polish.

The special occasion for Meghan’s look was USA Network’s and The Moth’s Storytelling Tour ‘A More Perfect Union: Stories of Prejudice and Power’.

She was pictured at the event alongside fellow Suits stars Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres.

Two years later, Kate Middleton stepped out in the same Zarita dress – but with two major differences.

As opposed to the mini dress option Meghan went with, the then Duchess went for a floor-length version in black rather than navy.

She turned heads wearing the ballgown at the 2014 Royal Variety Performance.

Essentially the dress was the same, with the scalloped neckline, three-quarter length sleeves and lace material.

Kate accessorised the black number with a sequin clutch in the same colour, diamond drop earrings, and of course her show-shopping Ceylon sapphire engagement ring.
