Duchess Kate: Black and white tweed dress with Web by Gucci

Knee-length black and white light tweed dress featuring blue and red Web trim, pearl buttons with chain, a back zip closure. 88% cotton and 12% nylon. By Gucci.

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.

1- Kate wore the Gucci dress on 29th June 2017 to open the new wing at London’s V&A.

I can’t decide if I like this coat or if I don’t. It looks very regal and fitted for a Princess but on the edge of being a bit too much. I would however say that it is a hit on the Duchess, the colour is delightful.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore it for the first time on 27th July 2012 for the Olympic opening ceremony in London.

This coat dress is elegant and is beautifully tailored but I don’t find the three-quarter sleeves comfortable especially for a winter garment.

Princess Diana, One Day One Dress: 3rd April 1983, Warwick Farm near Richmond, Australia

On 3rd April 1983 during an official trip in Australia, Prince Charles, accompanied by Princess Diana, travelled to Warwick Farm to play in a polo match, his first for six months. For the Princess, though, there was an ulterior motive. At the match she met Ann Bolton, her flatmate from bachelor-girl days, who was now resident in Australia. The Princess was wearing a pale blue and white stripes dress with a white sailor collar by Catherine Walker.
