Kate Middleton wears The Vampire’s Wife ‘Falconetti’ dress in green.
The Princess first wore the emerald metallic midi dress to a reception during a visit to Ireland in March 2020.
Vogue magazine called it a “major moment in royal dressing.” They said “Kate looked demure-yet-directional. Dare we say, fashion.”
We saw Kate in the green metallic dress for a second time, in an official portrait painted by Jamie Coreth unveiled in June 2022.
About the green dress:
Kate had to know she’d turn heads in this shimmering green dress. It was unlike anything we’d seen her wear before. The colour was perfect for a visit to the Emerald Isle!
The Vampire’s Wife say the dress draws inspiration from the early 20th-century Gibson Girl silhouette, which echoes the label’s retro aesthetic.
The garment features a fitted bodice, puffed sleeves, shoulders enhanced with shoulder pads and is finished with ruffles at the hem. The dress’s elbow-length sleeves also feature the same ruffle detailing.
The dress is crafted from a silk-blend chiffon fabric.
Vogue named the Falconetti style the ‘dress of the decade.’
The Vampire’s Wife Falconetti dress fan club register reads like an A-Z of Hollywood elite. A galaxy of stars has fallen for the charms of brand founder Susie Cave’s sweet, ruffle-trimmed dresses that ooze retro glamour.Vogue
