Duchess Kate: white midi-length cocktail dress with architectural black detailing by Gosia Baczynska

White silk midi-length cocktail dress with architectural black detailing. The sleeveless dress features black-edge pleats on the bottom part of the dress, delicate leaf black embellishment at the waist and a deep v-neckline. By Polish designers, Gosia Baczynska.

This is a daring choice for the Duchess, I like the embellisment at the waist and the black detailing on the skirt and the fabric. I don’t like the conic effect at the breast.

This is an elegant dress, very chic by its apparent simplicity but it actually has many great details. I find it just a tad bit too short and too tight at the top for the Duchess.
