The Princess of Wales channels Meghan in a gown by one of the Duchess’s favourite designers
It’s the first time we’ve seen her wear London-based label Safiyaa; the gown was a bespoke take on the £1545 Talina design, which features a high, jewelled neckline and split floor-length sleeves. Catherine’s version featured more structured, angular shoulders – a power shoulder, if you will – which made for a more contemporary and commanding silhouette.
Safiyaa is a label previously seen on the Duchess of Sussex at the Royal Variety Performance in 2018, when she wore an abstract floral top by the label. Meghan also chose a turquoise caped Safiyaa gown in Fiji earlier that year and a striking red gown for her final evening appearance as a working royal in March 2020.
