In 2012, the actress was pictured at HBO's luxury lounge sporting a tiny white bodycon dress which she expertly styled with a chic black blazer and cross body bag. While we're used to seeing the Duchess in sleek stilettos now, here she opted for simple ballet flats.

While a slinky sequin dress may be hard for most people to pull off, Meghan looks a million dollars. The royal swept her hair back into a modern ponytail, highlighting the Bardot cut of this show-stopping dress, and she accessorised with dazzling gold shoes, bag, and bangles. This outing was for a Suits event when she starred in the hit show.

A dress very much of its era, Meghan gave a thumbs up to the colour block trend in 2012. The bandeau style hugged her body, and she kept her accessories simple with black heels and co-ordinating bag. We love Meghan's bouncy blow out that looked gorgeous on her shiny brunette tresses.

When Meghan was pregnant in 2019 with her son Prince Archie, she wore a few figure-hugging dresses, beautifully showcasing her growing baby bump. While attending a charity event in London, the royal stepped out in an oatmeal knitted dress with matching coat. The tonal look was topped off with a beige and gold chain bag and a slick of nude lipstick. Simply stunning!
