Meghan Markle‘s dress on Tuesday morning may have been crafted just for her — but it still looked quite familiar!
Meghan attended the Royal Air Force centenary celebrations on July 10, along with the other members of the Royal Fab Four and Queen Elizabeth. For the occasion, she paired a dark navy bespoke Dior dress with nude pumps and a structured clutch, also by Dior. Her Stephen Jones headpiece added a fun element to the classic look.
Simple, but iconic, Meghan was clearly inspired by Audrey Hepburn, one of her fashion inspirations, for this ensemble. Meghan’s boatneck detail evoked Audrey’s love of the wide neckline, and the overall elegance of her dress exuded Breakfast at Tiffany’s vibes.
Meghan’s love of Audrey has been well-documented. Meghan has received the “Audrey Brow” treatment at a London salon, which is all about thick and natural but defined brows. And when she made her official relationship debut with Prince Harry in September 2017, fans immediately noticed her ballets flats, big sunglasses and cropped, skinny pants, a look that Audrey pioneered back in the ’60s.

And of course, for Meghan’s royal wedding dress, she opted for a boatneck Givenchy, the same designer Audrey wore at her own wedding to Andrea Dotti. Hubert de Givenchy, the house’s founder, was a close friend of Audrey’s, giving Meghan’s choice extra significance.
