Birchbox Crush: Meghan Markle of SUITS
You might have heard already (or received your July box), but in case you haven’t, here’s a quick refresher: This month we’ve teamed up with USA’s hit show SUITS in honor of the season 3 premiere, which airs tonight, 7/16 at 10pm ET!
If you’re as obsessed with the show as we are, you’ll understand why we’re crushing on the gorgeous Meghan Markle. We love the mix of her cool California girl attitude and ambition (not to mention her enviable style on the show). Her character Rachel Zane is smart, sexy, and driven, much like Markle herself. Surprisingly, Markle has some strikingly similar career experiences to her SUITS character—let’s just say she has a fascinating past working in foreign service. Watch the video to find out more about her unexpected path to Hollywood, her must-have beauty product and more!

It’s not everyday that you get to see how a television show is really made. But since Birchbox is partnering with the USA series SUITS this month, I had the very cool opportunity of visiting the show’s set, which is located just outside Toronto. Better still was being able to sit down with the lead cast members to discuss upcoming plot lines and favorite moments. Whether you’re a fan of SUITS or just want to know more about how television magic is made, here’s the play-by-play of my day on set:
Outside of the massive warehouse-like space where the set is located.
9:30AM: It’s go time! I head downstairs to the hotel lobby and meet up with the nine other journalists who are also in town to tour the set and chat with actors Gabriel Macht (Harvey Specter), Patrick Adams (Mike Ross), Rick Hoffman (Louis Litt), Meghan Markle (Rachel Zane), Sarah Rafferty (Donna Paulsen), and Gina Torres (Jessica Pearson).
