After Meghan Markle’s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards last night, there’s only one thing on our wish list: a black one-shoulder dress. 

At this time of year, shopping for a great party dress can be time-consuming.

Thank goodness, then, for Meghan Markle’s stunning choice of silhouette at last night’s British Fashion Awards because she officially debuted the style of the season: a one-shoulder dress.

Appearing on-stage at the Royal Albert Hall to present Givenchy designer Clare Waight Keller with the British Designer of the Year Womenswear accolade, Meghan opted for a full-length black-column velvet gown by her go-to creator.

As we know by now, Meghan has worn Givenchy several times since selecting the designer to create her off-the-shoulder wedding gown in May.
