Duchess Kate: rose pink off the shoulder tulle gown by Gucci

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.

Bespoke delicate baby-pink guipure lace and beige tulle gown. It features distinctive flared cuffs, a scalloped, plunging neckline, a v-neckline at the back, and a concealed hook and zip fastening at back. By Marchesa.

 

This is a beautiful gown, however I find the colour a bit washed out and the neckline is too plunging.

The fit-and-flare design has flexible boning and a defined bead and crystal-embellished waist. The full, layered skirt is reinforced along the hem to hold its voluminous shape. By Marchesa Notte.

 

This is a beautiful design very reminiscent of the 50s. The shape is lovely and the colour is very attractive.

This dress shows too many colours and it looks too ethnic to my taste. I however like the shape when it is worn by the Duchess.
