Megan Markle: BBC’s John Humphrys in savage attack over ’slob’ fashion sense
Meghan Markle was blasted for her fashion style by BBC presenter John Humphrys, who insisted the Duchess’ casual “French tuck” look was adopted by “slobbish” men.
Mr Humphrys made a snide remark against Meghan’s casual “French tuck” style, also known as the fashion tuck – a trendy street style where one tucks part of their shirt into jeans or trousers.
The 75-year-old presenter lashed out at the laid-back fashion trend, insisting the look was simply adopted by men who were “slobs” and did not notice their shirts were untucked.
Presenting BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: “Anyone who does not believe women and men are equal is a moron. Equal but different. I have four words to support that view.
The first two are ‘French tuck’.
“That, I’m told, is the latest fashion trend — wearing your shirt with one half tucked in your waistband, and the other half hanging free.
“When men do it, it’s because we are basically slobs and we don’t even notice. When women do it (OK — some women), it’s because they want to appear fashionable.
“Apparently Meghan Markle does it, and so does Cate Blanchett — and you don’t get a greater endorsement of a fashion trend than that.
“The other two words are ‘ripped jeans’. And with that, I rest my case.”
The French tuck style has been worn celebrities such as Gigi Hadid and Julianne Moor, is sweeping the world.
Meghan is known for keeping her style relaxed and comfortable, particularly now that she is four months pregnant with her first child.
The Duchess often dazzles with her designer wardrobe, and often wears darker outfits with the occasional splash of colour.
Royal experts have claimed Meghan does not want to upstage people at royal events, which is why she usually wears dark colours.
Just last week, she was spotted wearing a black Marks and Spencer’s bodycon dress at the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
Karen Haller, the UK’s leading Applied Colour Psychology Specialist, previously told the Daily Mail: “Looking at the occasions when the Duchess of Sussex is wearing black, this would suggest to me from a colour psychology perspective she is OK with not being in the limelight, not wanting to have the focus on her.
“Black has the ability have the wearer almost disappear and not be noticed. This looks to be her way of deflecting attention off herself and onto the causes she is supporting – putting them in the spotlight and centre stage.”
Meghan was most recently spotted wearing a sophisticated blue button coat and matching skirt at the Remembrance Day parade last week.
The Duchess often wears navy blue – she was pictured in navy outfits twice during her Australian tour, and also wore a navy Givenchy coat dress at Prince Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding in October.
However, Ms Haller claims there is a deeper reason behind Meghan’s colour choice.
She previously said: “When it comes to the psychology of colour, blue relates to the mind. Darker blues relate to trust, logic and knowledge.
“It communicates duty and professionalism and given it’s a more approachable colour than black, maybe why she wore this hue often on her recent 16-day royal tour down under.”
