It's #ThrowbackThursday, royal fashion edition. Remember those ah-mazing nude heels that Meghan Markle sported for her engagement announcement way back when? In case you need a refresher, the Duchess of Sussex busted the glamorous kicks out of her closet yesterday, restyling them for an event in London. (Brace yourselves for a second dose of footwear FOMO.)
The soon-to-be mother visited the National Theatre on January 30—she's taking the royal patronage duties over from Queen Elizabeth—and for the occasion, the former actress donned a cheerful blush Brandon Maxwell maternity dress and jacket combo, paired with a Carolina Herrera clutch. The outfit wouldn't be complete, though, without the same Aquazzura heels that Meghan debuted in November 2017 when she and Harry publicly revealed their engagement from the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace. Dubbed the Matilde, the suede shoes rely on a pointed heel and crossover ties to take the pair a notch above standard nude heels. Hello, wedding shoes!
Meghan also sported a pair of white shoes by the Italian brand for her royal wedding reception last May, proving that Aquazzura heels were made for walking...down the aisle. If you're looking to cop this royal style for your own big day, you're in luck. Despite the prominent "Markle Effect," the shoe hasn't flown off the shelves (yet), meaning you can actually get your hands on Meghan's kicks, if you hurry. They do cost a pretty penny, but it's arguably a worthy splurge for your nuptials and beyond.
