The-then Duchess wore the black floral lace dress as she watched the poignant performances that paid tribute to all the victims of war and conflict.
We’ve yet to witness the Princess rewear the black frock, but one can easily envision its stylish return—perhaps layered under a chic coat for an evening reception.
About the Dolce and Gabanna Black Lace dress:
For those in the know, Kate’s black lace number is nothing short of sartorial splendour. Crafted by Dolce & Gabbana in Italy, the dress is a divine blend of timeless elegance and the season’s moody allure. It features sheer floral lace that sweeps across a detachable silk-blend slip, cinching at the waist to celebrate the feminine form. The long sleeves and eyelash lace bateau neckline add an air of demure sophistication, while the unlined sleeves and neckline provide a tantalising hint of skin.
Chic down to its knee-length cut and scalloped trim, this dress is a statement piece that pairs seamlessly with opulent jewellery and pointed-toe pumps. It’s the kind of ensemble that calls for a grand occasion—or creates one all on its own.
