Ever since announcing her engagement to Prince Harry, the world's eyes have been fixed on Meghan Markle — and her style. We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are (kind of, sort of, almost) nearing the end of their 16-day tour, most recently spending some time in New Zealand. On Monday, the couple paid a visit to Courtenay Creative in Wellington to meet with leading artists in film, sculpture and costume design — and a whole bunch of costumed models showing off their works. (The costume party was rather timely given the season, too.)

For the occasion, the Duchess wore a custom white blazer dress by Kiwi designer Maggie Marilyn, which a release from the brand notes is 100 percent cotton and is ethically made in New Zealand. The double-breasted menswear inspired look is a modified, sleeveless version of the label's Leap of Faith dress, which is currently for sale on its website. The Duchess paired the dress with her go-to suede navy Manolo Blahnik pumps and a diamond pendant necklace by Jessica McCormack.
