Not so secure after all: Meghan Markle thinks certain dresses wont work on her because her torso 'isn't long enough'
Meghan Markle really likes Victoria Beckham's style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe
Meghan Markle sported a Victoria Beckham knit for one of her engagement photos with her husband Prince Harry but has not been seen in any of Victoria's dresses despite the two being good friends.
Meghan spoke to Glamour magazine before her relationship with Prince Harry went public and had said that she chooses to avoid certain kinds of shapes as she believes that she does not have the 'long torso' which those shapes require. The 37-year-old is expecting her first child with Prince Harry and had invited Victoria Beckham for her wedding which had taken place in May but it is unlikely that the Duchess of Sussex will be seen in any of the former Spice Girl's dresses.
At the time, Meghan discussed how she chooses her outfits and said, "What I'm starting to learn is, even though things look amazing on the hanger, it doesn't mean they're going to look amazing on me. For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don't have the long torso to support that silhouette".
The Duchess of Sussex also admitted that she would usually wear shift dresses, pumps, and cropped jackets before adding that she had started to wear longer dresses as she grew older. Meghan also shared that she would often coordinate her outfits by sticking to one specific color and opened up on her love for tonal dressing. Even though she is unable to wear Victoria Beckham's dresses, she reportedly turned to her for style tips.
As reported by Vanity Fair, a source close to Beckham and Markle shared, "They get along well and have been in touch recently. Meghan really likes Victoria's style and was keen to pick her brains about pulling together a working wardrobe".
Earlier this year, Victoria attended Meghan's wedding to Prince Harry and sported one of her own creations — a calf-length navy dress from her pre-spring/summer 2019 collection. "I love a bit of navy. The dress is one of my favorites: it isn't in store until November, but we've had so many inquiries about it that I'm seeing whether I can bring it forward," Victoria shared. She also added that she totally approved of Meghan's £200,000 wedding dress which had been designed by Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller.
