Meghan Markle‘s take on royal style has been full of surprises—from her love of bateau necklines to her choice of bridal designer. And she’s still keeping us on our toes.
To attend a special charity performance of the musical Hamilton on Wednesday, the Duchess of Sussex wore a stunning black tuxedo mini dress by Canadian brand Judith and Charles.
Sentebale, the organization being supported by the event (which was cofounded by Prince Harry), tweeted a picture of the royal couple arriving at London’s Victoria Palace theatre.
Markle is wearing the label’s so-called Digital Dress, which is currently available for purchase on Judith & Charles’s website (though probably not for long) for $595.
The cocktail-style tuxedo dress is a departure from the conservative sheath dresses we’ve seen Markle wear since the royal wedding. Choosing a Canadian designer for a special event is a classic Markle move, though—she wore a coat by Line the Label for her royal engagement photos and a Wilfred dress to last year’s Invictus Games.
Tuxedo and blazer dresses aren’t a new phenomenon: Similar styles have made the rounds on the red carpet in recent memory, from Kylie Jenner’s Tom Ford dress at the VMAs to Reese Witherspoon’s Stella McCartney outfit at the 2017 Emmys. With the Markle Sparkle, though, don’t be surprised if it sees another resurgence.
By the way, Markle is allegedly a huge Hamilton fan: Per People, she’s already seen it twice—once on a date with Prince Harry in February, and earlier with pal Priyanka Chopra.
