Meghan Markle & Kate Middleton Wore Matching Looks At Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday Celebration
The royals came together for a family affair on Nov. 14 in celebration of Prince Charles' 70th birthday, and their looks were as glam as ever. Though the sisters-in-law each have their own unique style, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wore matching looks this time around, and they were dazzling. The royals chose to sweep their tresses away from their face, and for good reason: to showcase their stunning, glitzy earrings, of course.
Extravagant jewelry can be intimidating at times, but when styled thoughtfully, it's the special sauce that's sure to elevate any look, from the office to your next black tie event. The royals did a fabulous job demonstrating how to approach a subtle, elegant beauty vibe, while letting the jewels do the talking.
When it comes to beauty, Markle and Middleton are of the belief that less is more, each opting for understated updos for Wed.'s event. However subtle, a touch of glam in the makeup department still gelled with the bold accessories. Markle and Middleton both opted for smoky eyes and a natural lip, with Kate leaning even more into the glamorous look with a hot-pink dress. Chances are, Meghan chose an off-the-shoulder style, considering photographers only captured a glimpse of her look while en route to the royal bash.
Markle borrowed the stunning chandelier diamond earrings from a family member, US Weekly reports, and it's not the first time we've seen them, either. The Duchess of Sussex also reached for the daring accessory for a state dinner in Fiji during her first royal tour with Prince Harry. No stranger to restyling her wardrobe, Markle often demonstrates how to borrow from your own closet to get the most use out of star items that should definitely shine more than once.
The Duchess of Cambridge was clearly on the same wavelength in terms of the vibe of the night, reaching for a pair of stunning teardrop diamond earrings, as well. Middleton swept her hair back in a voluminous updo, as to not obstruct the bling, and opted for a touch of drama in the makeup department with a smoky cat eye.
It's safe to say the synchronized pair looked absolutely stunning for their family event, and now it's your turn to recreate the look. When it comes to jewelry as dazzling as this, the styling opportunities are truly endless. Bold earrings look just as chic with a plaid blazer and sleek denim as they would with an evening gown, so allow yourself to dress them up or down, according to where you're headed.
