At the Ms. Foundation Women of Vision Awards on Tuesday, Meghan Markle looked stunning.
The Duchess looked stunning in a strapless, gold midi-dress by Johanna Ortiz, which had a scalloped design, an exposed zipper in the back, and subtle cut-out detailing on the torso.
While Meghan looked absolutely stunning that night, her entrance to the event was much less glam!
The awards ceremony was held at New York City’s Ziegfeld Ballroom, and Meghan, her husband Prince Harry, and her mother Doria Ragland were all chauffeured there.
However, they entered through the nearby Hertz car rental location.

I don’t comprehend! One supporter questioned, “Why the Hertz office?!” Another remarked, “Look at the Hertz rental lady’s face.”
Gloria Steinem, a renowned activist, journalist, and feminist icon who is also a co-founder of Ms Foundation, presided over the event.
The two had previously collaborated with Jessica Yellin for a conversation to discuss the seismic event in 2022, two days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and in 2020, when they spoke about the value of voting ahead of the US election.
The gala came to a close after Meghan’s acceptance speech. It’s never too late to start, she asserted.
“You are the architect of your own life… So much work still needs to be done.
She turned to Ms. Steinem, who had introduced her along with Teresa Younger, the current head of the foundation, and said, “I am a woman who continues to be inspired and driven by this organization.
“It allowed me to recognize that speaking up for those who felt ignored, standing up to injustice, and not being afraid to say what is true, what is just, and what is right was part of my greater value and purpose in life.”
Harry and Meghan attended their first public event together on Tuesday since the duke traveled alone to the King’s coronation earlier this month.
Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet’s parents’ US home in Montecito, California, was where Meghan had chosen to remain.
LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Voters Matter, Wanda Irving, co-founder of Dr. Shalon’s Maternal Action Project, and Kimberly Inez McGuire, executive director of Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, were also recognized as Women of Vision honorees.
