Proof that Jessica Mulroney chose THAT mini dress for Meghan?

She is reported to have picked Meghan’s mini dress that set tongues wagging this week.

And now further proof has emerged that Jessica Mulroney continues to work as the Duchess of Sussex’s unofficial stylist.

The fashion guru, a close friend of Meghan, has been working with Judith & Charles – the Canadian label behind her thigh-skimming tuxedo dress – for at least two years.

She dresses her other star client, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, in clothing from the brand for almost every public appearance.

Images from the designer’s Instagram page show Canada’s First Lady wearing Judith & Charles at a string of high-profile events and foreign trips with her husband, from Germany to China.

It suggests Mulroney, who is based in Toronto, enjoys a close working relationship with the brand, whose dresses cost upwards of €525 USD (£404).

It follows reports that Mulroney advised Meghan to wear her much-talked about racy black tuxedo dress from Judith & Charles to the theatre in London on Wednesday night.

Indeed, the label credited Mulroney with the outfit in a now-deleted Instagram comment, according to several reports.

Prince Harry’s new wife is understood to have made a three-day visit to see the Mulroneys last week in Toronto, where she lived for several years while filming Suits, during which Jessica gave her fashion tips.

Firm friends: Mulroney (pictured with Meghan in 2016) was reported to have 'quietly' flown into London ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's two-day trip to Ireland earlier this year, to help her plan what would become a much talked about - and very high-end - tour wardrobe

It wouldn’t be the first time Jessica has personally picked out pieces for Meghan’s royal wardrobe; last month the Duchess wore a sleeveless trench coat by the Canadian brand House of Nonie selected by Toronto-based Jessica.

The thrilled designer behind House of Nonie, Nina Kharey, publicly thanked Jessica on the brand’s Instagram account, and called Meghan’s outing in its $1,085 (£629) dress ‘an amazing day for us’.

It suggests that rather than keeping a personal stylist on her staff like Kate – and despite the considerable distance between the two women since Meghan relocated to London – it is Jessica who has been entrusted with helping the Duchess to refine her royal look.

And unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, who often wears British designers, Meghan has consistently plumped for clothing for Canadian labels thanks to Mulroney’s influence.

The TV stylist was reported to have ‘quietly’ flown into London ahead of Meghan and Harry’s two-day trip to Ireland earlier this year, to help her plan what would become a much talked about – and very high-end – tour wardrobe. 

Writer and royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted to say the TV stylist had also had a hand in the £1,300 vibrant yellow Brandon Maxwell dress Meghan wore to a Commonwealth reception at Marlborough House in London earlier this summer.

She is also believed to have picked out Meghan’s olive green ensemble at Prince Louis’ christening at St James’s Palace, and the Dior LBD she wore to mark the centenary of the RAF.
