I find this coat elegant but a bit sad looking and I am not a fan of the zigzag pattern.

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.

I really like this dress, it features a lot of things that I find appealing, like the fitted silhouette, the simplicity and the details which give its originality. The colour is nice but would need contrasting accessories to prevent it looking too bland though.

1- The Duchess of Cambridge wore this dress on 25th September 2015 at the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust near Woking, Surrey.
