Meghan Markle Attends The British Fashion Awards

The Duchess of Sussex stunned the fashion crowd last night by putting in a surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards.

Meghan, 37, wowed guests at the star-studded event when she stepped out on stage to present a gong to her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy, at the Royal Albert Hall on Monday evening, wearing a beautiful black one-shoulder dress that is believed to have been designed by the very woman she was there to honor.

Ms Waight Keller, 48, won the prestigious British Womenswear Designer of the Year award and thanked Meghan personally in her speech at the star-studded awards ceremony at the historic venue in Kensington, London.


The designer said: 'This woman is so amazing. I got to know Meghan on such a personal level. To have someone like that trust you on such a personal moment in their life... I can't thank you enough because it was the most beautiful moment.'

The Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the spring, looked sensational in a black one-shoulder velvet gown, believed to be Givenchy, as she clutched her baby bump.

Addressing the assembled fashionistas at the Royal Albert Hall, the Duchess said: 'It's such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers, in my new home in the UK.'

She said of fashion, that 'we have a deep connection to what we wear. Sometimes it's deeply personal, sometimes it's emotional,' and said that for her, it was 'really in being able to understand that it's about supporting and empowering each other, especially as women.'

She praised the 'kindness' and the 'values' of Ms Waight Keller, who created the gown in which she walked down the aisle this May.
