Sophie's blue dress is gorgeous! I love seeing her in her full regalia. Sophie's red dress is lovely too, though I wouldn't have placed the bows on the sleeves if I were designing it.

The green is a lovely color. But not sure on style, reminds me of a robe.

I love the floral print dress. Very pretty on her.

The green dress has no style & does nothing for her, but the floral dress is lovely.

The Countess of Wessex at the celebration of the life and career of Roger Moore in Iver Heath on October 15, recycling the lovely dress she wore in Brunei on October 7 (see above):

The red dress is also a repeat from Brunei:

The red dress is too tight, too many lumps and bra line. The blue dress is just heaven for her. The color, high neck and ruffle and small print work beautifully

Agree on the red. It looked fantastic in Brunei, but we only saw from the front. Seeing it from the back you can see how tight it is. If the dress was a size bigger it would love fantastic front and back. I still love the style.

The blue dress is still beautiful though

Curious that two dresses last worn on an overseas trip are being used for events so soon after the trip. Suggests she hasn't unpacked and is still living out of her trunk! Ha!

Taking fashion advice from Camilla Or she decided since she wore them outside the country, not an issue wearing them so soon back home.

But, Countessmeout, have they been washed and ironed?

Wonders of dry cleaners. Likely washed, pressed and back all nicely wrapped 24 hours after she got back. Or what ever the palace equivalent is.

Quite agree on the red dress, the front looked great when in Brunei, in fact I loved it yet seeing the back it is way to tight on her. Bra lines are not good on any woman and would hope she has a mirror or someone to tell her. Where is the hubby when you need him .....

The blue dress is just fine, yet the color red really goes great with her skin color and hair. It is called......lose it or get a larger size, for me it lose it asap!

Ir is amazing what a silk chemise, camisole or petticoat can do to stop that body cling.

Heavens no. Being a natural fabric it 'breaths' and so in winter, they are warm, in summer they are cool. They cover a multitude of sins when a garment is not lined. The only stipulation is that the silk is woven and not knitted. Woven silk gives that shiny, smooth surface for your outer garments to slide over.
