Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle Go to the Same Vintage Dealer

Amal (alongside her husband George) attended a dinner celebrating the Prince's Trust International, which was hosted by Prince Charles on Tuesday, March 12. For the Buckingham Palace event, she wore an exquisite white jersey Grecian-style cape and Jen-Louis Scherrer by Stephane Rolland gown from Spring/Summer 2007, which she procured from London's very own William Vintage.

And while most of us might not be able to mosey on over to Marylebone to pick up exquisitely curated gowns and coats from William Vintage, there is hope: they run satellite stores on both 1stdibs and through Farfetch.
