Meghan Markle is loving life in NYC.
Last night time, the Duchess of Sussex stepped out in a black-and-white jumpsuit by Gabriela Hearst — and followers on social media have been fast to level out the similarity to a robe lately worn by her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.
Markle, 40, appeared modern in her strapless outfit as she joined Prince Harry, 37, for dinner at Locanda Verde after the 2 visited the United Nations to mark Nelson Mandela Day.
Wearing a strapless black jumpsuit with flared legs, black and white ties on the again and a large white band on the high, the duchess’ look was related in fashion to the Roland Mouret gown the Duchess of Cambridge wore to the “Top Gun: Maverick” premiere.

Markle wore her hair in a modern ponytail for her dinner date, including minimal equipment together with black Aquazurra sandals ($725) and a Shiffon 18k gold diamond “1972 tennis” pinky ring ($2,800) and 14k gold “Duet” pinky ring ($595).
Unsurprisingly, Team Meghan and Team Kate had totally different opinions on the look.
“Wow this outfit looks familiar. Where have we seen it before?” one fan commented. “Right, the Duchess of Cambridge wore something similar to the Top Gun Maverick Premiere. Too bad Megs isn’t original.”

A Sussex fan clapped again, writing, “The pick me’s have arrived! Kate’s dress was actually the same designer and style as something Meghan had worn previously. Meghan knows how to modernise and style a look. She looks fabulous here.”
Meanwhile, extra followers argued on Twitter. “Its so so different,” a Meghan fan wrote. “Look at the back. Meghan markle is a style icon. Kate looks to her for styles.”
“Of course. Catherine has far better taste,” a Middleton fan replied.

Markle and Middleton aren’t the one ones selecting the banded, monochromatic look; Scarlett Johannsen wore the very same jumpsuit as Meghan to the People’s Choice Awards in 2021, and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands wore a jumpsuit model of Kate’s Roland Mouret robe again in 2017.
Another royal watcher tweeted a side-by-side picture of the 2 duchesses with an Oscar Wilde quote, stating “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”
At the top of the day, the Duchess of Cambridge’s look most likely isn’t the place the duchess drew her inspiration; Markle has been a fan of Gabriela Hearst designs for years.
