Who designed Meghan Markle's blouse that everyone is talking about?
The future princess shows the world her keen sense of style with a trendy top that's turning heads.
When you're the future Mrs. Prince Harry, all eyes are bound to be on you: what you're wearing, what you're doing, where you're going, who you're with.
So if you're Meghan Markle, the American actress who got engaged to His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales in November, even something as simple as a white pussy-bow blouse – cue the "Seinfeld" puffy shirt jokes! – under a pantsuit gets tongues wagging. It suddenly becomes a hot item. No, we can't just wear any white blouse now. Markle's raised the bar! We have to have that. Exact. Same. Blouse!
So ... what is it? Actually, it's not a blouse at all. It's a bodysuit, from Philadelphia-based designer Tuxe Bodywear, worn under a chic Alexander McQueen pantsuit and capped off with black suede Manolo pumps. Markle wore it to an awards ceremony for the Endeavor Fund, a nonprofit that celebrates the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.
Tuxe's founder, Jerusalem-born Tamar Daniel, wrote on Instagram that the brand is now "royally approved." Which for the designer – who graduated from Israel's Shenkar College of Engineering and Design – can only mean one thing: she's hit the big time.

We’ve been royally approved! We absolutely love Meghan for all she has done for women’s rights and are honored to be worn by someone who encapsulates what we stand for as a brand. She uses her spotlight to be an inspiration and she definitely is to us! Thank you to Meghan and her team for working alongside us. Be sure to read the spotlight and shop the Ivory Boss in our bio!👸🤴💕
Indeed, Tuxe isn't the only brand with Israeli roots to catch the attention of the princess-to-be. There's Inbal Dror, the cutting-edge designer from Tel Aviv who's dressed Beyonce and actress Naomi Watts and is known for sultry, show-stopping styles. She officially submitted sketches to the Royal Palace to vie for a chance to design Markle's wedding dress. What those sketches look like, whether Markle will choose one for her gown or for those of her bridesmaids, remains a closely guarded secret.
