'Style muse': Meghan's rise to global royal trendsetter
ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Her jackets and jeans, bangles and bags can instantly send tongues wagging and designers' sales soaring.
Fashion blogs and social media accounts dedicated to the Duchess of Sussex's style have mushroomed, just as they sprang up for her sister-in-law Kate, Prince William's wife, allowing followers to comment on her latest sleek looks usually in a monochrome palette.
For her busy royal diary, Meghan usually wears expensive labels, namely French couture house Givenchy whose British artistic director Clare Waight Keller designed Meghan's wedding dress.
Dior, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta are among other formal and eveningwear go-to brands.
