Creamy white wool-crepe floor-skimming gown featuring subtly gathered shoulders and sides, a front vent, a high neckline and an asymmetric zip fastening along the back. It is fully lined in silk. It was called the “Lombard” gown and re-issued under the name the “Ella” gown. By Roland Mouret.
This is a stunning dress, close to perfection in my opinion.
1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it on 9th May 2012 for a meeting of the Thirty Club dinner at Claridge’s, London.
2- The dress was worn again on 5th December 2013 to attend the “Nelson Mandela” film premiere in London. News of the death of Nelson Mandela broke later that evening.
