Megan Markle made a notable appearance at the 2018 Royal Ascot in a striking black and white ensemble, a tribute to Audrey Hepburn's character in 'My Fair Lady.' The original dress was created by Cecil Beaton, known for his role as a court photographer for the royal family.
The scene at the races was a pivotal moment in the film as Hepburn's character made her public debut. Beaton's design drew inspiration from the infamous 'Black' Royal Ascot of 1910, a year when, following the death of King Edward, all attendees of the event donned a black-and-white color scheme.
Acclaimed actress Debbie Reynolds had once purchased Hepburn's dress for $100,000. The iconic costume later went under the hammer in 2011, fetching a staggering $3.7 million.
