Meghan Markle is serving up a masterclass in chic summer dressing and we’re taking note. But there’s more to this fashionable look than meets the eye.
On Tuesday, August 25, MAKERS teased a sit-down interview between the 39-year-old and feminist icon Gloria Steinem. In the black-and-white clip, Markle looks flawlessly stylish in an all-white ensemble.
The perfectly put-together look is made up of a white T-shirt, striped, flared trousers by Anine Bing and Stella McCartney wrap sandals. However, the piece that really stole the show was her giant Janessa Leone’s Serena hat, which retails for $356. As if we didn’t love it enough already, the brand announced that it would donate 10 percent of all online orders through Sunday, August 20 to I Am a Voter. This nonpartisan movement is encouraging people to engage in their civic right to vote.
Now as good as Markle looks, there’s a bit more to the outfit than just simply it’s beauty. First off, the former Suits star chose to wear all-female designers, which feels perfectly on-brand for a conversation with modern day’s leader of the women’s movement.
Then there’s the fact that she opted for an entirely white look. This color has historically been associated with the Suffragette movement, even being referred to as “Suffragette white.” For instance, during election day back in 2016 Hillary Clinton wore an all-white look specifically as a reference to feminists’ history.
The full interview is set to drop today, August 26, during which the two women discuss the importance of voting, representation and “how all women ‘are linked, not ranked.’”
“People forget how hard women like you and so many others before you fought for us to just be where we are right now,” Markle said to the author during the promo video.
Steinem added, “If you don’t vote, you don’t exist. It is the only place we’re all equal, the voting booth.”
