In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) wore the Preen Finella dress to two different events. She debuted the red version of the dress during day three of the Royal Visit to Canada, back in September.
Just two months later, she chose the black version of the Finella dress for an awards ceremony hosted by the charity Place2Be.
About the Preen Finella dress:
The Finella dress is made from stretch crepe fabric. It features a draped bodice, nipped-in waist and box-pleated skirt.
Net-A-Porter calls the red version of the dress an “elegant choice for your next event”. They describe it as having “a shoulder-framing neckline” and “a fitted, draped bodice that falls to a voluminous box-pleated skirt”. Meanwhile, the company say the black Finella dress has an “ultra-flattering, elegant silhouette”. The dress is made in the UK.

According to the Telegraph’s Fashion magazine, Kate purchased the two Preen dresses from Fenwick’s Bond Street department store:
Kate reportedly purchased the first red dress from London department store Fenwicks and was so pleased that she requested the same style in black two weeks ago.
