Meghan Markle Stuns in Red Plunging Dress and Matching Slingback Pumps at Salute to Freedom Gala
Meghan Markle made a bold style move while arriving with Prince Harry at the Salute to Freedom gala at the Intrepid Museum in New York City.
The Duchess of Sussex hit the red carpet in a red halter-neck Carolina Herrera gown. The style featured a cinched waistline and thigh-high slit, as well as a deep neckline and flowing skirt. Markle accessorized simply, pairing the bold piece with diamond earrings and a poppy lapel pin. The dress’ shape and silhouette were a sharp departure from her typical reserved style, but still remained elegant.
For footwear, Markle went the colorful route and wore a pair of matching red heels. Her shoes of choice were silky slingback pumps, which included pointed toes and stiletto heels totaling at least 3 inches in height. When paired with her dress, the style created a monochrome look that was punchy and bright.
Pointed-toe pumps have emerged as a top shoe trend this year, especially as live events have returned and more people are dressing up. The style often streamlines any ensemble from its sleek silhouettes and daring heels. Parker isn’t the only celebrity to wear a pair this season; in recent weeks, Rita Ora, Paris Hilton and Sarah Jessica Parker have also worn pairs from Roger Vivier, Aquazzura and Manolo Blahnik.
One of Markle’s go-to shoe styles is pointed-toe pumps, which she wears in neutral and tonal hues from Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Aquazzura and more top labels. When off-duty, her streamlined, versatile style also incorporates Valentino flats, Nike sneakers and Hunter boots.
