Meghan Markle and Blake Lively may share their experience as actresses, but the duo has something else in common – enviable fashion sense! Now, they’re going head to head for a very stylish Teen Choice Award on Aug. 12. The Duchess of Sussex and the Hollywood beauty are in the running for the Choice Style Icon honours alongside stars like Harry Styles, Migos and Zendaya.
This is certainly a first for the Royal Family, but it’s no surprise since the new Duchess of Sussex only just entered the royal fold after a long career in television and film. The former actress was a rom-com staple for many years before landing her biggest role as Rachel Zane in the hit paralegal series Suits, which filmed in Toronto. She has garnered lots of attention and praise for her classic taste in fashion, both on the show and as Prince Harry’s partner, so it’s no surprise that she could be the recipient of this award.
But her Teen Choice nod is not the only nomination the newlywed royal received this year! It was revealed earlier this month that the Los Angeles native may even be shortlisted for an Emmy for her role in the show, according to Entertainment Tonight . While it’s probably not the first time Meghan has been submitted for consideration in her role as Rachel, this would definitely be a first for the royals.
Whether the Duchess wins the award or not, she is certainly winning in the eyes of royal watchers! Meghan debuts new and exciting looks every time she steps out. And while her fashion has shifted a bit due to her new role as a Duchess, she still manages to bring that Meghan flare to every ensemble. Most recently, the brunette beauty stepped out with her husband for her first Royal Ascot as an official member of the family. Donning a stunning white Givenchy shirt dress and elaborate black-and-white hat by designer Philip Treacy, she definitely brought her sartorial A game at the annual star-studded event.
