Some people may not have known about Meghan Markle until her relationship with Prince Harry became public, but Suits fans have probably been following her since the show debuted back in 2011. But five years before that, it’s safe to say Markle was a bit more under-the-radar. That’s when she was first photographed at a celebrity event—along with Mandy Moore, no less.
For the event, which was celebrating a Coach photo exhibit, Markle wore a simple tank dress and an oversize clutch, but it’s her shoes that caught our eye. Perfectly matching her skin tone, her nude heels create a “naked,” barely there effect that feels very on trend 13 years later. Of course, her sense of style has evolved since becoming a royal and now a new mother, but it’s clear Markle always had a thing for fashion.
