  2. Vraiment magnifique dans cette robe bleue ├á une ├ępaule sur mesure ; cela permet d’admirer la jolie rondeur de ses ├ępaules mais dommage de ne pas mieux voir ses bijoux dont en particulier ses boucles d'oreilles !

  3. Very pretty dress--the blue is very flattering on the Duchess.

    1. I've seen a photo on another site and the light blue fabric is on the back of the dress and becomes a train of about, what appears to be, two meters long.
      The Duchess seems to like, for evening wear, dresses with trains on them.
      I think her mum looks smashing.
      I think their choice of winners of the award, has been well and fairly made.

      But this hairstyle....I thought, who goes on stage with a bad hair day style? Nigella

    2. @ Nigella, who has a 'bad hair day'? Doria? Are you for real? Are you just shaming a woman of colour for wearing her natural hair on a stage that celebrates the achievements of People of colour? ? Mrs Ragland looks gorgeous. What a beautiful lady with her warm and genuine smile. The highbun goes perfectly with the black fitted dress, the black pumps, even with the glasses. This woman has style and grace. Meghan can only hope that she got her mother's genes.

      Sorry Beth, I don*t like her outfit and hairstyle, no matter if woman of color or anybody else. For me, not difference. I just don't like it. It's no "stage-gear". Period. Nigella

    4. @Nigella You never mentioned her outfit in the beginning, only her hair. Now it is her dress too? Just what don't you like about her hair? What don't you like about her dress? I'm afraid I don't know what a "stage-gear" is.

      Meghan hasn's been seen with her natural curly hair since she was a young teenager and her outfit style has since she married Harry been a Diana

  8. The Duchess looks very fit and very pretty. Love her dress. The Duke looks happy and handsome in his tuxedo. I think the lady next to Meghan in the last photo is her mother and, I must say, she looks as young as her daughter.

      Thank you for speaking out and saying so many others deserved this award. I read where they were compensated monetarily to 'accept' this award.

      The hair, and eyebrows look similar to what Catherine has been doing lately with her hair on special occasions. The dress colors are lovely, however the final fitting missed a few things, the fabric is bunched up strangely around her right armpit area and the waist is rather odd, can't put my finger on why. I personally think the slit is distracting from the overall look of the material and dress. Harry looks good in his suit, though his hair is typical of his family line and trying to cover it with making it look 'fussy/fuzzy on the top' just highlights that he is balding (photos 2,3,5).
      When I first saw this photo of them together she reminded me of her days on the American tv show where she walked down a stairs and held a case either full of money, or empty (just my personal opinion) :) annie

      The award when to the wrong couple, former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, have done more for all people of color, color doesnt mind what color they are, like most of use.
      Megahn was dressed like she wore the clothes for that united states tv show where she carried a case with no money or some money. Just a tacky shoe. Dress was bunched up under the right arm, and the slit was too high. Harry looks like himself, though the loss of hair is showing. annie (first comments not published, free speech and all that) sigh.

      On the contrary she looks slimmer since de last photos I've seen from her. The blue shades in her dress are very well chosen in contrast with her beautiful skin.

    I love the colour and sweeping style of the dress, I wonder if she knew she'd match the background. She looks great, healthy and poised. I think a different earring, maybe a diamond rather than the dark one would have stood out more but that would just be my preference.

  13. The gown is pretty and the colour is very becoming, but I don't like the split from the upper thigh and how this disrupts the front of the gown, how it falls, or the long train, its very excessive, but that's my personal tastes. Dora, looks chic and stylish, I love this dress, she looks fabulous.

    Harry and Meghan are both dressed by black designers. Harry's tux is by English designer Ozwald Boateng. Christopher John Rogers is known for his use of bold colors. Other examples of is work that you may be familiar with are the black gown and white suit Adele wore for her "One Night Only" special and Oprah interview.
    I am happy to see them recognized for their work. The US has really been struggling, and they have a voice that will be heard. They are in good company with the group of previous recipients.
    Meghan looks so nice in blue, as we have seen in the past. The design is so flattering for her. The lighter colors up around her face, along with the one shoulder detail, keep the attention away from her waist, where she is still carrying a little baby weight. Once again, she is losing the slow and healthy way. Her hair and makeup are on point as well. I want to take a moment to shout out Doria. She looks amazing! I like the subtle tonal detail in the dress and the asymmetrical neckline. It is so simple yet makes a statement. She is in fantastic shape.
    Finally, I can't go without mentioning my love of Anthony Anderson and Mama Doris. I am just happy to see them there. ~d

    Gorgeous color. Meghan looks beautiful in this shade. I like her make- up and earrings. I like the slit. She has great legs. Shoe them off. Her is well styled but I would prefer a different style with this dress.
    Not a fan of Harry’s unbuttoned tuxedo jacket. His tuxedo is okay. Doria looks good. Has she lost weight?

      So what, nobody said she is perfect. Are you perfect ? If E.B.B. think she has great legs it is O.K. I think she has beautiful eyes and hair it is O.K. too.
      I think that most people who don't like H & M are people from the UK . In other European countries they have more fans, which is normal. We the people of other European countries are not very much influenced by all the stories that have been told about H & M and the Royal Family. All what we know about this family is what we read in the press and on the internet. The family members and ex-family members know best what really happen and the real truth will not be told by any of them, or maybe over 50 years or more in a publication like a book or a biography.

      Love the dress especially the colour - Meghan looks great as does her mother.

      You're right Anon 16:40 - a lot of people in the UK don't like Harry Meghan - because much of what they have said has been proven to be untrue. But I think you're wrong that it's only a UK thing - plenty of others from many countries aren't keen either.

      Anyway, they've chosen the life that works for them. Good luck to them.

  18. I like the Duchess of Sussex's dress but it does not fit her properly.
    It is pulling on the side seam near the hem and on the photo with her arm around the lady in black it is pulling over the bust line.
    I also think the split is a bit too high maybe that is whats causing the loose stretched looking fabric just under her hips.
    I think it is silk satin and it is one of the worst things to have to sew with. Maybe another type of underlining would have helped it keep its shape.
    Other than that I think she looks lovely.

    Great association ;we are all coloured people. Actually I love the bright coloured dresses. The equality thing is interesting; some people are more equal; if you gave everybody $2,000 some would waste it on drugs and alcohol, some would turn it into $5,000.Around the world now there is violence against all types of people; which is sad. Harry is just being Harry.(Tabby)

    As a life member and the longest serving president in the 104 yr history of the Greater Springfield, MA Chapter, I’m embarrassed.

    Was there no one engaged in the justice struggle for Black people in this nation worthy of this award?

    Or is this really just about ‘IMAGE?’

  21. The Duchess of Sussex is a member of the Royal Family and in this capacity she should not be wearing a far too long and somewhat common-looking slit. Her hair is not very regal either. Her mother Doria looks far more distinguished.

      Is she a member of the Royal Family again now ? I thought she and Harry where not anymore since they moved to the US (and in the case of Meghan won't go back to visit the RF). And frankly I cannot blame her decision. There are things you don't do to your family.
