Given her impressive streak of color-saturated monochrome ensembles over the years, it’s no surprise that Meghan Markle picked a striking red look for her first public speech in the United Kingdom since stepping down as senior royals two years ago. The Duchess of Sussex took the stage at the One Young World Summit in Manchester on Monday, where she addressed 2,300 delegates from over 190 countries and territories while making a strong case for modest and stylish workwear.

Her outfit of choice was a Valentino co-ord, featuring the Italian brand’s collarless blouse with a tie around the neck and straight-legged trousers, both in a bright red shade. She completed her look with matching pointed-toe heels by celebrity-loved footwear label Aquazzura, minimal gold jewelry, and her signature sleek ponytail. Royal watchers were quick to note that Markle’s outfit might be a light nod to her mother-in-law Princess Diana, after her 25th death anniversary last week. The late royal was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier in a red Valentino dress for British Vogue just before she passed away in 1997.

This is not the first time the Duchess has championed demure style in Valentino. One of her most talked-about looks this year has been an oversized all-white suit by the fashion house, which she wore to the Invictus Games in the Netherlands. Her latest look is also reminiscent of her monochrome look during her last appearance at the One Young World Summit in 2019. While she chose to wear a dress by Aritzia then, it too came in a modest silhouette and a vibrant shade of purple.

Few colors command attention the way red does, making its sartorial power transcend trends and seasons. Try Isabel Marant’s draped V-neck slit and sleeveless dress for an elegant look at cocktail parties, or Saint Laurent’s formal dress with a slit, which is ideal for a business dinner. AZ Factory’s T-shirt and tutu-inspired flowing skirt explores a fun side, while Givenchy’s thigh-high boots, styled with a knitted dress, evoke a younger, feminine side. If you are looking to go bolder, Loewe’s sculpted dress with a cape is the perfect pick for you. To accessorize, go for pearls such as Chanel’s elegant necklace, the fail-safe combination of black footwear like the Elisabetta Franchi black open-toed heels, and metallic arm candy such as a Dolce & Gabbana bag.
