Meghan Markle Had the Chicest ‘Wardrobe Malfunction' of All Time on Her Birthday

The Duchess of Sussex spent her 37th birthday at Prince Harry’s BFF’s wedding on Saturday, August 4, and of course, we’re here to talk about her latest outfit. But what some dubbed a “wardrobe malfunction”—when Meghan Markle’s black lace bra peeked out over the buttons of her $328 Club Monaco dress—we call a chic fashion statement, even though the queen probably wouldn’t approve. After all, can’t a gal wear her (albeit gorgeous) birthday knickers in peace?

The duchess was quick to “recover” from her brassiere’s debut by buttoning up her color-blocked Club Monaco dress a little higher (we’re assuming that there’s a “no-show bra” royal protocol she had to follow here). She paired the now sold-out frock with her go-to Aquazzura heels, Philip Treacy hat, black leather belt and woven clutch

Bra-show or no, we think Meghan looks stunning. (Here's hoping her big 3-7 included lots of cake and a special toast, too.)
