While the royals have garnered attention earlier for their exorbitant fashion sense, the credit for seamlessly blending the regal with the glamorous truly goes to Meghan Markle. Her unique eye for style has not only redefined the modern princess archetype but also made a resounding impact in Hollywood. It is this very fashion sense that allowed Meghan Markle to sit next to Anna Wintour when she was relatively new, a feat that even Kim Kardashian has yet to achieve. And it is this very fashion sense that helped her capture the world’s attention as a royal.

The Duchess’ style, however, is more than just surface level. She dresses for a purpose, and her outfits cater to a cause. More than anything else, the two causes that Meghan Markle has regularly promoted, women’s empowerment and sustainability, are effortlessly reflected in her style owing to one brand.

During her time as a royal, Meghan Markle attended various events catering to those in need of empowerment. And she made sure she did her due diligence as she stepped out in remarkable outfits guaranteed to bring attention to the event she was attending. While the quantity of such events has depleted significantly since Markle’s royal exit, the quality of her outfits still remains the same as proved by the Invictus Games. And a brand that the Duchess has stuck to through thick and thin (read: royal life and post-royal life) is Cuyana.

With women of color and sustainability at its core, Cuyana has saved a permanent seat in Markle’s closet. According to co-founder Shilpa Shah’s interview with Vogue, it seems that the Duchess has catered to the brand as much as the brand has to her. “It’s such a great vote of confidence,” said Shah about the former actress’ love for the brand. And it must be, especially as Markle even partnered with the brand as the patron of Smart Works.

While it is clear in the case of Cuyana why it became such an essential in the Duchess’ wardrobe, it is not the first time Meghan Markle has proven loyalty to a fashion brand.

Markle’s unique sense of style has always been em discussion. However, the subject of discussion has varied greatly from time to time. While netizens marveled at her fashion upon her entry into the royal realm, it did not take long for it to unravel into whose and what of the payment and whether it was better than Kate Middleton. At one point, reports claimed that Markle’s extravagant sense of style was burning a hole in the royal treasury. On another, fashion was reported to be the culprit of Markle and Kate Middleton’s long feud.

Meghan Markle herself has officially acknowledged the rumors about fashion causing a rift between the two royal brides to a certain extent. In her Oprah Winfrey interview, the Duchess, and in his memoir, her husband, both recounted Middleton’s displeasure with Princess Charlotte’s flower girl dress. In any case, be it drama, sustainability, or silent fashion, Meghan Markle does bring the best of both worlds through her style.
