Kylie Jenner’s New Year’s Outfit First Debuted On Meghan Markle — Here’s How She Altered It
The New Year has arrived lightning fast, and though it's sad to think the holidays are officially over, there's one thing to look forward in the days following Dec. 31: all the amazing celebrity outfits flooding your feeds. And as you find yourself scrolling through Instagram relishing in all the enviable ensembles, there's one New Year's Eve look that's bound to make you do a double take. Yep, Kylie Jenner's New Year's outfit looks very familiar, and as it turns out, it actually first made its debut on Meghan Markle back in Oct. 2018.
While it's hard to argue against the fact that Jenner and Markle's styles are very different, there are a handful of subtle similarities that link their closets. The latest evidence? A white Maggie Marilyn tuxedo dress that has officially found its way into both of their wardrobes — but not without a few alterations.
Jenner donned the white, double breasted, cotton-twill tuxedo dress for a New Year's Eve dinner at celeb-favorite L.A. restaurant, Craig's. And while Jenner chose to wear the dress fairly close to its original design — i.e. long, puffy sleeves — she appears to have had the hemline shortened ever so slightly. The 21-year-old wore the Maggie Marilyn piece with fun accessories, including a pair of rose-colored Olgana Paris pump, a lucite clutch, and freshly dyed blue hair.
Markle, on the other hand, first debuted the white tuxedo number in Oct. 2018, while she and Prince Harry were on their official royal tour of New Zealand. Much like Jenner, the Duchess had some alterations made to it, but rather than having the hemline shortened, she opted to have the long, structured sleeves removed.
The Duchess took a slightly more sophisticated styling approach, pairing the piece with navy Manolo Blahnik pumps, gold stud earrings, and a black wool coat. She wore her hair in her signature low bun and rocked the perfect no-makeup makeup look.
The brand behind the dress, sustainably focused Maggie Marilyn, took to Instagram on Jan. 1, writing, "How amazing to see another incredible woman wear our ‘Leap of faith’ blazer dress — so many remarkable and trailblazing women have worn this dress."
Though this Markle and Jenner-approved piece is currently sold out, the market is filled to the brim with equally sophisticated tuxedo dresses you can easily wear for work and play. Ahead, The Zoe Report's roundup of the best tuxedo dresses to buy now.
