Duchess Kate: sapphire blue embroidered gown and shawl by Jenny Packham

Sapphire blue floor-length gown hand embroidered with ornate silver beading, featuring a full gathered chiffon skirt  trailing along the floor, a boat neckline and long sleeves. The gown is completed with a sheer shawl in matching blue with sparkling beading. The beading was done by artisans in India. It is a bespoke piece by Jenny Packham.

I like the effect of the skirt of this gown as well as the long beaded sleeves and corsage. I however prefer it without the shawl, as it makes the whole look a bit tacky.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore the gown on 10th April 2016 to attend a gala in Mumbai, India.
