The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for a fancy date night on Monday, attending the star-studded Royal Variety performance at the London Palladium Theatre to support the Royal Variety Charity.

The 37-year-old mom-to-be threw it back to her glamorous Hollywood roots in a black sequined halter top with white floral applique and a floor length black skirt by London-based designer Safiyaa, who Markle previously wore last month in Fiji. As for her accessories, she finished off the look with black pointed-toe heels and a black sequined box clutch.

This isn’t the first time that Markle has been spotted wearing an applique embellished ensemble to an event. Just last month, she wore a dreamy white tulle Oscar de la Renta number at the Australian Geographic Awards in Sydney while on her first royal tour with Prince Harry.

During the Australian Geographic Society Awards, Meghan Markle looked like a fashion dream in a whimsical Oscar de la Renta gown, which was decorated in an abstract bird print and see-through panels of tulle.

But Meghan isn't the only royal to have taken a sparkly halter style for a spin. Before the Duchess of Sussex stepped onto the scene, Princess Diana was a fan of the cut, too. Almost 24 years to the day, Diana showed up to a charity concert in Paris dressed in a glittering Catherine Walker design.

And who can forget when, way back in 2008, Kate Middleton attended a charity roller skating event dressed, well, like this:

I think I speak for all of us when I say Kate wore it best. At least this one time.
