While Meghan Markle has already shot down rumors she’s interested in an American political career, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are sure taking a page out of former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama’s book, with Meghan reminding some of Mrs. Obama with her outfits.
According to the Daily Mail, the duchess wore a Loro Piana maroon cashmere coat and matching pants and Manolo Blahnik pumps. The former “Suits” actor finished off the look with over $380,000 in jewels, including a gift from her royal husband’s late mother Princess Diana.
The monochrome outfit shared a similar style with Michelle’s Sergio Hudson-designed pantsuit worn on Inauguration Day in January 2021, that took the internet by storm. At the time, the former first lady’s stylist Meredith Koop revealed via Instagram she made a point to dress Mrs. Obama in “pieces she can live, move and inspire in.” Koop continued, “This particular outfit is about the woman wearing it more than anything. She is powerful and she needs to move. She is stunning and she represents what is possible. She is relatable and she is aspirational. She has consistently articulated over the years what has been in the hearts and minds of so many. She has taken a look at the rule book and turned the page. She leads, she inspires and she slays.” It’s mantra that the duchess is starting to take on, as well.
