Fitting right into the season’s shoe jewelry trend, the stilettos boast elegant straps covered with eye-catching pearls. Other labels including Bottega Veneta, Casadei and Sergio Rossi have also looked to the jewelry realm in recent seasons, incorporating details such as chains and crystals into their footwear.

The “Suits” star completed her look with a black handbag, which appeared to be from Loewe.

Meghan has worn Edgardo Osorio’s Aquazzura pumps many times over the years — including for her engagement announcement and at her wedding reception. Osorio says it has been “an incredible honor and privilege” to have the duchess’ approval.

“She’s an amazing role model, a beautiful woman. I couldn’t be more happy,” the designer told FN in 2018.

Apart from Aquazzura, other go-to brands of Meghan’s include Manolo Blahnik, Sarah Flint and Stuart Weitzman. She has also reached for more affordable silhouettes from labels such as Rothy’s and Veja.
