Angelina Jolie channels her inner Meghan Markle in her new Ralph & Russo dress
Jolie was given the prestigious honor of being an Honorary Dame Grand Cross by Her Majesty back in the year 2014 in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, which was attended by Brad Pitt
Meghan Markle seems to have created her own niche style, which has no doubt inspired countless women across the world. One such personality who has been inspired by the fashion chic of the new royal seem to be Angelina Jolie.
The 'Maleficent' actress was clearly found embracing her inner Meghan Markle as she attended a royal service in London recently.
The 43-year-old actress was spotted looking absolutely regal in a cowl bateau neck, knee-length eggshell Ralph & Russo Couture dress, which came complete with a matching fascinator, gloves, and pumps, according to E! News. The Oscar-winning actress was in the city to attend the Service of Commemoration and Dedication, which marks the 200th anniversary of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George, at St Paul's Cathedral on Thursday.
Jolie chose to wear her hair styled in a chignon, something that she might have picked up from the Duchess of Sussex. And to add finishing touches to her already royal ensemble, Jolie added the perfect accessory to complete her look, i.e. the bejeweled brooch of a Dame.
And although the renowned actress was looking for her chance to get reacquainted with the Queen herself, her majesty backed out from the event last minute due to a summer cold, and instead of her, sent her cousin, the Duke of Kent, as Grand Master of the Order.
Jolie was given the prestigious honor of being an Honorary Dame Grand Cross by Her Majesty back in the year 2014 in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, which was attended by her then-husband Brad Pitt along with all of their children -- Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox.
Jolie was presented with the honor by the Queen for her work campaigning to end sexual violence in war zones and for services to U.K. foreign policy. At the time, the actress was presented with the Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.
On the other hand, Meghan Markle, Britain's newest royal, is also sticking to neutral and blush pink shades for most of her royal appearances as of late. And it seems that the former 'Suits' star has her heart set on Givenchy since she is relying more and more on the fashion house's dresses for her appearances.
Markle was recently seen arriving in Berkshire looking elegant and radiant in a white Givenchy dress that she paired up with a black satin clutch, a hat by Philip Treacy and a pair of Birks Petale earrings. However, a lot of people seem to think that the Duchess of Sussex is trying to incorporate her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana's style statements into her own.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Lincolnshire, in the weekend to attend the wedding of Prince Harry's cousin Celia McCorquodale in Stoke Rochford, Markle was seen wearing a floral print maxi dress while Prince Harry walked hand in hand with his wife looking stunning in his suit.
However, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the dress Markle chose to wear for the wedding looked a lot like the outfit Princess Diana chose to wear in 1986. The pattern on Meghan's dress resembled a lot like the one Diana wore. People were quick to comment on how both the ladies looked stunning in their respective choices of outfit.
"Beautiful prints on two beauties," one commented. While another added, "Really??? She's copying Diana's style." Meanwhile, another seemed to insist that the two ladies looked beautiful in their respective way and maybe, Meghan was not copying Diana but just being herself. "Only one Diana, Meghan is her own person, with her own style. Hope they let her be her own person and not try to copy Diana. It just looks strange otherwise," the comment read.
