Who is more stylish? Queen Elizabeth or Meghan Markle?

Queen Elizabeth

American designer Dennis Basso says that Queen Elizabeth has BETTER style than newest bride Meghan. He said Markle, 37, ‘is a girl who is showing up style’ but he believes that the Queen has more style.

An American designer has said he’d rather have the 92-year-old Queen of England sit front row at one of his shows than Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Dennis Basso presented his Spring 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week on Tuesday and told the New York Post who he’d really like to have as a guest next season. 

While he said that 37-year-old Meghan ‘is a girl who is showing up style,’ he added: ‘But the Queen — that is a double snap.’

Meghan hasn’t been to Fashion Week in quite a few years, and certainly not since she started dating Harry. Meghan Markle’s style has become more conservative since they publicly announced their engagement.

Basso seems to favour royalty across the board, naming two other queens — of pop, that is — as dream guests at his show: Cher and Madonna.

While it looks unlikely Queen Elizabeth will ever fly into new york to attend Fashion Week, she sat front row at a fashion show more recently than Meghan. Though the Duchess of Sussex attended quite a few shows back before she started dating Harry, she’s stayed far away from that scene in recent years.

In February, though, the Queen sat next to Anna Wintour at London Fashion Week, taking in Richard Quinn’s show.

It’s also attention-grabbing that Basso ought to favour the Queen’s style, that has gone largely unchanged in her many decades on the throne. Many of the colourful coats and matching hats she wears for official appearances today look identical to ones she wore in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. She additionally accessorizes in quite a similar way, selecting ladylike frame bags, low heels, and sparkly brooches to pair with nearly every outfit.

Meghan, on the opposite hand, maybe a bit more modern in her choices and certainly dresses with more variety.

Since joining the royal family, she’s ditched a number of her sexier outfits for polished, slightly more conservative looks, choosing streamlined coats, dresses, and skirts, with ladylike silhouettes and little to no embellishment.

And she also has the magic touch when it comes to making an item of clothing or an accessory an instant hit. Many of the things Meghan chooses to wear instantly sell out, for instance, the Club Monaco dress and 22-karat gold Linda Farrow sunglasses she wore to a wedding in August, which both flew off the shelves.

She was also single-handedly responsible for the selling out of a Shoshanna dress this summer, as well as a Goat dress she wore to Prince Charles’s 70th birthday celebration — which sold out overnight.

And if truth be told, based on her current style, Meghan would be more likely to wear a Dennis Basso design than Queen Elizabeth.
