Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry started dating, the Duchess’s profile has skyrocketed and she has become an international fashion icon. But the former actress revealed in a jaw-dropping interview she is very picky over the clothes she wears. Despite Victoria and David Beckham attending the Royal Wedding back in May, Meghan Markle said she would not choose to wear one of the designer’s dresses because of her body shape.
The Duchess of Sussex said although she loves Victoria Beckham’s dresses, she does not “have the long torso to support that silhouette”.
But the Duchess has worn pieces by the designer before.
Meghan also wore the very same jumper earlier this year during the Duke and Duchess’s first official joint visit to Northern Ireland.

Meghan opted for a spring coat by Mackage, a Greta Constantine emerald skirt and a jumper by Victoria Beckham.
The Duchess said: “Now what I’m starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn’t mean they’re going to look amazing on me.
“For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don’t have the long torso to support that silhouette.
“I wore a lot of Burberry on Suits, and I wear a lot of Prabal Gurung, because Rachel Zane’s whole aesthetic is someone who comes from money and has a real classic design sensibility.

“It’s really modern because she’s still young.”
She added: “There’s also a lot of Tom Ford because as all paralegals do, she wears a Tom Ford skirt to the office!
“It’s so funny because girls come up to me on the street and they feel like they know you and they’ll say, “Oh what was that skirt that you were wearing last week?!”
“I’ll be like, ‘well A, I was wearing it seven months ago, and B, it was a Tom Ford skirt – so you want to know but you don’t really want to know that it was a $5000 skirt – and I don’t get to keep it!’
“But it’s been really cool to see what works for my body and what doesn’t.”
Meghan’s wardrobe, even today, is believed to be heavily inspired by the TV character she played in Suits.
Costume designer Jolie Andreatta revealed how much Meghan enjoyed wearing the outfits on the show.
She said: “Meghan and I loved Rachel’s clothes. We’d always say that, if we could, we would live in Rachel’s clothes
“Designing Rachel’s look was like being a kid in a candy store.”
