Tonight the best in British fashion and entertainment all gathered for the annual British Fashion Awards in partnership with Swarovski.
The Duchess of Sussex made an unannounced appearance at the event and shocked everyone because no one was expecting it. She was there to give Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director of Givenchy – the British Womenswear Designer of the Year award. This is the same designer that made her iconic wedding dress.
“It is such an honor to be here celebrating British fashion and British fashion designers in my new home of the U.K.,” Meghan said to the audience who couldn’t stop cheering.
When she accepted her award, Keller thanked Meghan for trusting her to design her gown for her big day. “I got to know Meghan on such a personal level,” the British designer said. “To have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life is something that is just the most unbelievable honor. I can’t thank you enough because it was the most beautiful moment.”
Since her wedding in May, Givenchy has become a go-to for the Duchess, as Alexander McQueen became a go-to for Kate Middleton. Meghan is often seen wearing Givenchy pieces for royal engagements.
Meghan looked incredibly stunning and glowing in a sleek black velvet one-shoulder Givenchy column gown, as she walked to the stage cradling her stomach.
