Meghan Markle reveals secret TRICK behind her sensational figure – and YOU can do it too
Meghan Markle, 36, plays Rachel Zane on popular legal drama Suits and is often noted for her stylish look on the show.
Discussing her look on the programme, Meghan said: “People watch me as Rachel Zane on the show, who’s so polished and so put together.
“But that includes Spanx and two hours of hair and makeup.”
Meghan made the admission so that anyone watching would understand that she does have help to look so good, and “in real life that is not what it looks like”, she told USA publication The Star.
Spanx are a range of control pants designed to smooth out the lumps and bumps on a woman’s figure, and have millions of fans around the world.
The current season of Suits is airing on Netflix at the moment, and as usual Meghan gets to wear an envy-inducing wardrobe as Rachel Zane.
Last week saw Rachel wearing an angelic white sleeveless shirt and tight black jeans in one scene.
In a later scene, Rachel wore a black lace top and grey pencil skirt which showed off every curve – and no doubt Meghan was wearing a pair of Spanx underneath them.
Rachel’s wardrobe has become an iconic reference for working women everywhere, and Meghan spoke about it in an interview with InStyle.
She said: “People often say dress for the part that you want, not the part that you have, and I can’t think of any paralegal that was dressing like Rachel did.
“She was dressing for the role and the seriousness that she wanted people to treat her with.
“Rachel’s quintessential power look is a crisp, white button-down with the collar a little popped, sleeves rolled up and a high-waisted pencil skirt. It’s a look that makes her feel confident and come across like she really means business.”
And Meghan also revealed how the wardrobe team create Rachel’s expensive look.
She said: “I think one of the key tips for looking polished at the office is tailoring. No matter what you get, if it’s budget or high-end, if you have it tailored for your body you’re going to look 10 times better.”
Naming the brands Rachel wears, she said: “Rachel does a lot of mix and matching for the office.
“You’ll see that I replicate so many of the pieces that I’ve been wearing ever since season one. I’ll wear the same Tom Ford skirt and then pair it with a new Prada blouse or a L’Wren Scott little cashmere sweater.”
