She’s a spotty sensation! The Princess of Wales can’t resist a dotty dress – the pretty pattern puts a retro twist and a whimsical flair on any classic midi moment. Staying true to her vintage minded aesthetic, the princess has become a devotee of the luxury womenswear brand Alessandra Rich.
The London based designer prides herself on developing dresses for women with busy social calendars and bustling careers. Many celebrities are drawn to Rich’s mid-century styles with playful pleats, cutesy polka dots and fun embellishments like ruffled collars, big bows and crystal buttons.
Here are Kate Middleton’s top 10 Alessandra Rich dress moments:
