Something about her pregnancy must be making Meghan Markle feel experimental, because last night she made yet another fashion first since officially becoming a Royal – rocking a fabulous red lip.

From her protocol-breaking cherry nails last month, to the letter-box red stilettos she rocked earlier this week, the Duchess is clearing becoming more comfortable switching up her fashion looks. Stepping out in a glamourous navy blue sequined gown, with hair in a slick bun for an evening performance with Prince Harry, Meghan looked every inch the style icon in a bold red-hued lipstick.

It’s unusual for her, and that’s apparently because she does not favour the classic look – instead feeling more comfortable and flexible in a nude or natural colour. And now we come to think of it… we’re hard-pressed to recall a single occasion she’s worn anything but since her wedding last May. And according to her makeup artist Daniel Martin, for good reason. “The one time she did a red lip, she just didn’t feel comfortable in it. She likes to talk and she’s not a fussy person, so she doesn’t want to have to worry about anything. They have so many engagements, you just have to stick with what you know and feel comfortable and confident and just own it,” he said. It’s totally understandable, if a little limiting where style is concerned.

She was spotted in a slightly pinkier shade in Auckland, New Zealand on her first overseas tour last October:

Not quite a classic red, but stronger than her go-to nude tones. In fact, the last time she may have been pictured in a bold lip were in her pre-royal days, practically another era:

We’re glad to see she’s found a way to make it work in an elegant and up-to-date way. Let’s be honest, she hardly needs the boost – that natural glow is enough to pull any look together. But either way, it’s safe to say she pretty much rocked it. Here’s to more Meghan style surprises coming our way.
