The Meghan Markle Effect: How She Rocked a Cape at a Fundraiser

Whoever claimed that capes are only for Halloween clearly hasn't encountered Meghan Markle. In a pleasantly understated manner, the former actress showcased her cape collection during a surprise appearance at Kevin Costner's One805 fundraiser, accompanied by her husband Prince Harry. While the ensemble may have lacked theatrics, it more than compensated with its undeniable style.

At the event, hosted at Costner's Santa Barbara beach house, Markle donned an oversized black-and-white herringbone poncho cape by Carolina Herrera. The cape boasted a relaxed turtleneck, black piping, and billowy cropped sleeves. Paired with black ankle pants and strappy black heels, the cozy layer was perfectly complemented by all-gold accessories—a gold watch, gold earrings, and a gold bracelet. Markle's sleeked-back bun with a middle part harmonized effortlessly with the cape's high neckline. She completed her glamorous look with feathered lashes, bold brows, and a matte pink lip.

Prince Harry, on the other hand, opted for an equally understated ensemble, sticking to an all-black attire consisting of a dark blazer, button-up shirt, and jeans.

This joint appearance follows their recent extended stay in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they successfully hosted the 2023 Invictus Games. Throughout her time at the Games, Meghan showcased an array of stunning outfits, once again turning to Carolina Herrera when attending the sitting volleyball finals at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.

For this particular occasion, the Duchess of Sussex traded her cozy fall attire for an effortless denim midi dress. The dress featured a collared neckline, a button-up design, and a waist-cinching tie belt. She opted for a loose, low bun hairstyle, and completed the look with simple black heels and delicate jewelry.
