FROM Serena Williams to Misha Nonoo, Meghan Markle loves to support her best friends by wearing their fashion brands.
But dresses by her designer friend Victoria Beckham, who along with husband David Beckham attended Meghan’s royal wedding to Prince Harry in May, have made nary an appearance in the Duchess of Sussex’s wardrobe rotation — because the 37-year-old doesn’t think they flatter her.
“For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don’t have the long torso to support that silhouette.”
But while you probably won’t spot her wearing VB-designed sheaths or shifts anytime soon, Meghan’s still found ways to shout out her friend: The Duchess of Sussex sported a white cashmere sweater by Beckham in one of her engagement photos with Harry.
The effect of a Duchess of Sussex endorsement has never been more obvious than during her recent Royal Tour in Australia. On the very first day of the trip, she stepped out in a white Karen Gee dress, causing the designer’s website to crash by 9.20am.
