Meghan Markle made a solo appearance at Variety's 2023 Power of Women gala Thursday in Los Angeles, California, marking her return to the red carpet after spending some time away from the spotlight.

Known for her sophisticated and understated fashion choices, the Duchess of Sussex exuded grace in an elegant beige off-the-shoulder gown crafted by esteemed New York Fashion Week designer Proenza Schouler.

The floor-length dress featured subtle slits up the front and both sides.
