Meghan Markle stole the show during a surprise appearance at The Fashion Awards.
The 37-year-old duchess of Sussex attended the awards show Monday in London to present Givenchy artistic director Clare Waight Keller with Womenswear Designer of the Year, according to Vanity Fair.
Markle, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, stepped out in a black, one-shoulder Givenchy dress. The formfitting gown emphasized her growing baby bump.
"It is such an honor to be here celebrating British fashion and British fashion designers in my new home of the U.K.," she said on stage, according to Cosmopolitan.
Keller designed the wedding gown Markle wore to marry Harry in May. She praised the duchess as an "amazing" woman in her acceptance speech.
"I got to know Meghan on such a personal level, and to have someone like that trust you in an incredible moment in their life is just such an unbelievable honor and I can't thank you enough," the designer said, according to British Vogue.
