In November 2014, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed attendees at the Royal Variety Performance at the Palladium Theatre in London by turning up to the event wearing a gorgeous black lace gown by Diane Von Furstenberg. Specifically, Kate wore the label’s “Zarita” style.
A month later, the Duchess wore the black lace gown again, this time to a friend’s wedding at Chelsea Old Church in west London (photos here).
About the Diane Von Frstenberg Zarita Lace Gown:
The Zarita lace gown features three quarter length sheer lace sleeves, a deep V-neck back, scalloped lace detail at the hem and it is fully lined. The lace dress is made from a rayon-nylon mix, which offers ‘stretch’ properties, flattering the body and allowing for movement.

Zarita in different style and colours:
The “Zarita” is one of Diane Von Furstenberg’s signature designs. DVF offer the Zarita dress in a multitude of styles, lengths and colours. The dress is often changed, updated and relaunched to suit the new season.
Of course, Kate opted for the full length lace gown with fitted bodice, long sleeves and a waist that opens into a sweeping fluted hem.
The dress in the “HEAVEN” cream colour can be purchased from Neiman Marcus in limited sizes.

The Duchess owns several dresses from DVF – the “Maja” dress in green and the “Patrice” dress in navy Ikat Batik print spring to mind. The Duchess also owns a couple of clutch bags by the brand too.
