And WE HAVE SEQUINS. The magpie in me is DELIGHTED. This navy gown means Meghan went 2 for 2 at picking her favorite hues for events today. I just really want you to enjoy the copy on the site where I found the gown, though: “The navy blue hue will shimmer and shine under the lights while the close-fitting design works overtime to sculpt your body to perfection. The front slit will show off your minimalist sandals and your legs as you glide throughout the room.” WILL IT, MyTheresa.com? WILL IT??!? Well, I guess it did, actually, because Meghan’s Mirror et al sussed out that she’s wearing navy Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals.
The gown isn’t a simple up-and-down sheath: The front, which you can see a bit better here, has a bit of a fluttery-drapey bits (I’m positive that’s the technical term) that Meghan wears a lot, both on Mourets and stuff from other designers. Roland Mouret at least shows at London Fashion Week; I do wish we’d see more British designers make their way into her wardrobe, but it’s very glam — especially matched with one of Diana’s bracelets, last seen on Day 1 of the Royal Tour — and I approve. I’m sure she’s terribly relieved.
They’re at the opening of Totem, a Cirque du Soleil show whose premiere is benefiting Sentebale. Per the website, “TOTEM follows the human species from original amphibian state to ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage, evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations. TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.” That sounds about right.
She got to schmooze backstage, too:
I would have had SO MANY questions about how often they drop each other — a subject I’m certain none of them actually wants to discuss, but I’M SO CURIOUS. How do you figure out you can juggle other humans, or whatever?
Sequins for ALL, it seems. SOLD.
