The Duchess brought back the very popular off-the-shoulder mesh-paneled dress she debuted in 2016 for the Art Fund Awards by London based, Brazilian designer Barbara Casasola.
The $2,210 midi dress is cut from figure-sculpting stretch-jersey and paneled with sheer mesh inserts for a sporty feel. Made in Italy, it it designed to create a flattering, feminine silhouette.
The dress is from the designer’s minimalist Spring 2016 Collection.
Kate styled the dress with the drool-worthy Jimmy Choo Romy 100 Silver and Dusk Blue Fireball pumps she wore for the BAFTAs. The $725 style are described as: “The classic Romy heel gets a contemporary update in silver and dusk blue fireball glitter dégradé. Leather lined with a leather sole, the 100mm heel height creates a leg-lengthening effect.”
In fact, my only quibble with this look is the shoes rather outrank the dress in terms of formality and sheer sparkle factor. The Choos are screaming ‘Take me to the ball’. I love them both separately, but I do think the dress worked better with the sandals the first time round.
Laura quickly identified Kate’s clutch as the Wilbur & Gussie Charlie Steel Classic Silk Clutch. The light grey bag features a silver crystal bee brooch.
And Kiki McDonough hoop earrings.
