The Duchess of Sussex supported her friend Misan Harriman at an event marking his first feature film last month, a newly-surfaced photo shows.
Meghan, 42, attended a Netflix tastemaker event with her professional photographer-turned-filmmaker pal Misan, in Montecito, California, on November 15.
The Netflix event, celebrating his film The After, appeared to involve a discussion between the Duchess, Misan, and actor David Oyelowo.
Meghan opted for her favourite power dressing colour, tan, as she took part in the talk – and looked elegant as ever.
She appeared to be wearing a structured blazer from Valentino Garavani’s spring/summer 2022 collection, paired with a knitted brown turtleneck top and a satin skirt of the same shade.

The Duchess also wore black pumps from Giorgio Armani, and sported her $2,673 Logan Hollowell constellation ring for Leo – which is her zodiac sign.
Meghan’s sleek monochrome outfit was another example of her favourite power-dressing shade – as she has worn several tan and camel outfits to make major statements over the years.
The Duchess rolled out a stunning monochrome ensemble at the Invictus Games in September, donning £1200 wide-leg silk trousers from Gabriel Hearst paired with a £365 Dani Blouse, to meet with NATO leaders in Dusseldorf ahead of a day of spectating.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised fans in August with a video in which they call young inspirational people to congratulate them on their work – and Meghan opted for a sleek tan dress
In January 2020, Meghan sported a stunning jumper and skirt combo, paired with suede pumps and a tailored coat, all in different shades of camel, copper and tan.
She wore a £345 coat from Reiss with a £50 polo neck and £85 skirt from Massimo Dutti for her appearance in London.
At the time, stylist Lucas Armitage told FEMAIL that her choice of colour was a ‘power dressing move’ – because just hours after the appearance, she and Pricne Harry announced they were stepping down as senior royals and moving to the US.
He said: ‘Meghan is using traditional power dressing pieces to assert an authority and grounding them in relaxed colours to show a level of calm.’
The look was remarkably similar to one she wore the previous October, when the Duchess stepped out in £95 trench coat dress from Banana Republic for a morning meeting at the University of Johannesburg.
It was later that day that Prince Harry launched an attack on the on the British media as he accused the press of ‘bullying’ and ‘relentless propaganda’.
Royal reporter Elizabeth Holmes speculated about the shift on her own Instagram page, writing: ‘It’s the ultimate dressing-for-the-slideshow moment.’
And stylist Lucas revealed the sartorial choice was likely intentional, saying: ‘The camel coat is a similar sartorial choice she has made time and time again before breaking controversial news.’
He went on to explain that even the tones of brown may have been an important choice for the royal.
He said: ‘Camel is neutral tone and often seen as a calming and pure tone.
‘As a stylist, camel seems like a great colour tone to employ as it’s less serious and somber then most hues and isn’t too attention grabbing like bolder colour choices.’
In August, the Duke and Duchess surprised fans with a video in which they surprised young future leaders in the US with phone calls. Sitting together in a love seat in the sun-steeped garden of their Montecito home, the couple were filmed as they made congratulatory phone calls to the winners of their new safer technology grant.
In the video, the Duchess stunned in a structured tan outfit with a high, ruched neckline and sharp tailored lines. She opted for a camel $162 tube skirt with matching sleeveless $189 top from Malibu brand Bleusalt.
And it could be determined that Meghan was once again making a statement with her stunning outfit, as it was the first time the couple had been seen amid mounting speculation about their future in Hollywood and rumoured strains behind the scenes.
By appearing in the video, beamed as they discussed a subject they are passionate about – putting to bed any rumours of trouble.
