Bespoke version of the long tier black mix violet jacquard dress. Kate’s dress doesn’t include the thin straps and boning within the bodice with built in bra construction. It is instead an off-the-shoulder version of the dress. The black silk-blend dress features a floaty full skirt divided in tiers by black ribbons, a black satin waistband and is beautifully embroidered with green and violet flowers. It has organza layering throughout the skirt. From the Alexander McQueen’s Resort 2016 collection.
I am not a big fan of this dress, I think it lacks lustre and it doesn’t fit the Duchess as it accentuates her lack of feminine hips.

Slightly off the shoulder tulle gown featuring a ruched bodice and a floor-length floaty skirt in layers of pleated tulle in a soft array of pinks. By Gucci.
Very romantic gown with a lovely floaty effect. However I don’t think the bandage top is very attractive.

This gown has a lot of lovely details but overall it looks a bit bland on the Duchess.
