Meghan Markle has given us the gift of another appearance—and another gorgeous dress—today at Westminster Abbey. The Duchess of Sussex wore a custom Dior A-line dress, matching Stephen Jones hat, and Cartier earrings for a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force. She was accompanied by her husband, Prince Harry, as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton (who chose a pale blue dress for the occasion), all of whom joined the Queen for the event.

Meghan's gorgeous outfit is an unexpected choice, yet looks strikingly familiar. It's a strong departure from the parade of pale pinks and creams she's worn to her official royal events so far post-wedding (she wore white Givenchy for the Royal Ascot, another cream Givenchy number for an appearance with the Queen in Chester, peach Carolina Herrera at Trooping the Colour, and a pale pink Goat dress at a garden party at Buckingham Palace), but the neckline is one we've seen before. For many of these events, Meghan's opted for an open boatneck cut, showing off a little shoulder—even yesterday she wore an olive Ralph Lauren dress with a wider neckline to Prince Louis' christening—but her most memorable boatneck fashion moment to date: The bespoke Givenchy dress she wore to her wedding in May.

In addition to the shoulder sighting, today's outfit looks a bit familiar for another reason: The LBD has major Audrey Hepburn vibes.

With fitted top, tiny belted waist, and gorgeous, stiff A-line skirt, Meghan's Dior dress looks just like something Audrey Hepburn would wear—and did wear in movies like Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's and to real-life events.
