The Duchess of Sussex is known for her chic style, and since announcing her pregnancy she’s been debuting maternity looks fit for the runway. And on Friday (March 29), HELLO! Canada readers had their say on which glamorous pregnancy look was Duchess Meghan’s best. You overwhelmingly picked her ethereal Oscar de la Renta bird-print gown she wore while on royal tour in Australia!
According to 33 per cent of readers, the black-and-white graphic print dress she wore to an event at Sydney’s Shangri-La hotel was the winner! This choice was followed by 18 per cent opting for her black velvet-and-mesh Givenchy gown at the Oceania exhibit viewing (before she even officially announced her pregnancy!), and 12 per cent who loved her Fiji blue Daniela Karnuts caped gown in Fiji.
While all of Meghan’s outfits are ones for the books, it’s no surprise Oscar de la Renta’s ballgown took home the gold. It was certainly the biggest win for her tour style as a whole, as she debuted herself a modern duchess to present Sophia Skarparis with the award for Young Conservationist of the Year at the Australian Geographic Society Gala Awards. She paired the number with a sleek, wavy hairstyle, black pumps and a glowy makeup look.
The runner up was a dress she wore by one of her go-to designers, Givenchy, for an artistic evening at the Royal Academy of the Arts. The stunning number boasted billowing mesh sleeves and a black velvet bib-like accent and belt that perfectly matched her pumps and Givenchy clutch. This outing was less than a week before she and Prince Harry officially announced their pregnancy in Australia on Oct. 15, 2018.
While neutrals are certainly the mom-to-be’s favourite colour palette, she wore a lot more colour that usual on that royal tour – especially in Fiji. In third place was her Daniel Karnuts caped number in a jaw-dropping Fiji blue. She frosted herself with a spectacular pair of borrowed chandelier earrings and a tennis bracelet, anchoring the look with a pair of navy pumps. But her best accessory? Her gorgeous early pregnancy glow!
