Duchess Kate: Long tier violet jacquard dress by Alexander McQueen

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.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore the dress on 12th February 2017 to attend the 70th annual British Academy Film Awards at the London’s Royal Albert Hall.
