In order to achieve a spectacular sartorial sendoff on her farewell tour of the UK–the Duchess of Sussex enlisted the help of a new stylist. Maria Means Cote, a former PR powerhouse at Prada was called upon to amp up the wow factor on Meghan’s final fashion as a working member of the Monarchy. From a red Safiyaa cape gown that brought all the drama to a formfitting vibrant turquoise sheath — Meghan’s clothing was intended to help her “go out with a bang.”

In order to achieve Meghan’s dream of a glam goodbye, the fashion industry power player who lives a stone’s throw away from Kensington Palace, helped the duchess curate a sensational lookbook of bright and bold designer styles.

Here’s a roundup of her dazzling departure looks:

Why mess with success or is it Sussex? The duchess has long been devoted to the excitement of a couture cape creation so it was no surprise she stunned in her ‘Farewell to the Firm’ tour in a scarlet red Kalika cape effect gown with a raised collar and dramatic drape detail.

When not wearing a glamorous gown or a princess party dress–the duchess opted for professional pieces. Meghan wore a blazer for a visit at the Robert Clack Upper School in Dagenham, Essex. The textured topper features front patch pockets, a belt and fringe trim.
