Mulroney isn’t new to the styling scene. She was reportedly involved in helping her BFF the Duchess of Sussex decide on her wedding look, and picking out outfits for the duchess’ many royal engagements.

Mulroney, who’s something of Canadian royalty herself, has been Markle’s right-hand woman long before she married into royalty. The two became close friends when Markle lived in Toronto while she was filming “Suits.”

Her two sons, twins Brian and John, and daughter Ivy were even a part of the royal wedding, walking down the aisle as page boys and bridesmaid.

Mulroney’s also previously styled Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau and Shania Twain. She was recently hired by Kaling, who’s known on and off screen for her colourful looks.

When Kaling met with Etalk presenter Ben Mulroney on the carpet, she couldn’t resist singing his wife’s praises.

“His brilliant wife is staying with me,” said Kaling. The actress, who will also present an award, called her look “the epitome of elegance.”

Fans pointed out that Mulroney even stuck in a little nod to Kaling’s appearance in “Ocean’s 8.”

Mulroney will be putting her fashion expertise to use on a new Netflix TV-show called “I Do, Redo” where she’ll help couples who had a disaster first wedding get another chance at it. The series premieres on March 22.
