Meghan was pregnant with daughter Lilbet at the time and the silk georgette dress complimented her baby bump perfectly. It was super special, with a deep front, lotus flower embroidery and matching belt. Well, it's just won a seriously coveted award! It's just been selected as Bath's Fashion Museum’s Dress of the Year for 2021.

Visitors to the Fashion Museum will see the item in the headline exhibition, A History of Fashion in 100 Objects. According to the museum's website, "Each year, the Fashion Museum invites a top name from the fashion industry to select a Dress of the Year that encapsulates the prevailing mood of fashion, represents the past year, and captures the imagination. This year’s selectors are Dazed magazine’s Ibrahim Kamara and Gareth Wrighton."

The pair said of their select: "Meghan’s wrap dress by Armani, worn to showcase a divine pregnancy, framed the Duchess in black against the bountiful landscaping of Tyler Perry’s Hollywood garden. This look now, through sheer association with a viral television moment, is firmly engrained in our pop culture psyche."
