Meghan Markle’s NAACP Awards Designer Dress: ‘I Was Shocked By Her Warmth’

Elaf: Meghan Markle’s debut of the year at the NAACP Awards looked Hollywood with the help of a black designer.

New York-based designer Christopher John Rogers was behind the flowing, one-shoulder blue dress the Duchess of Sussex wore to receive the President’s Award in recognition of her special achievement and distinguished public service alongside her husband Prince Harry on Saturday.

Rogers spoke to Vogue about how the stunning look came about – starting with an email from Meghan about a month ago asking if he wanted to collaborate with her. It wasn’t long before a virtual call brought them together to talk in more detail.

“I was immediately struck by her warmth and general demeanor – her sense of comfort and confidence within herself,” Rogers said. “We quickly touched on the idea of ​​the bare shoulder. It hadn’t come out like this in a while.”

The final look was an ombre gown with a chiffon half shoulder, a thigh-high side slit and a sexy two-foot-long sash behind her.

“It’s really exciting to be able to use colours, and lots of different shades of the same color, to create a kind of graffiti, which is a signature of me,” the designer explained. “It’s something new and relevant at the moment.”

Meghan, 40, completed the look with loose hair that fell to one of her shoulders, smokey makeup, and Aquazzura’s Celeste sandals.

She completed her look with a gold bracelet studded with diamonds and blue stones that once belonged to Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana.
Meghan has worn the piece on numerous occasions, including during her fall 2018 tour to Australia and at the launch of her clothing collection.

Prince Harry, 37, also chose a black designer to sign his look at the NAACP Awards, wearing an Oswald Boateng tuxedo.

Through the couple’s Archewell Foundation, which they launched in 2020, Harry and Meghan have supported efforts to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic and have focused on the Black Lives Matter movement and the fight for racial justice.

During the couple’s speech, Harry thanked the black community for “welcoming him warmly”, while Meghan, who brought her mother Doria Ragland to the awards ceremony, said she “could not be more proud”.
