Following a busy start to the royal visit to Sweden, the Duke and Duchess Cambridge concluded their first day in Stockholm with a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador.
Kate opted for a bold choice, wearing the Erdem 'Stephanie' floral-printed silk-crepe de chine gown in a gold hue (ID by @HeavenLM). The pattern is from Erdem's Fall 2017 collection which was heavily influenced by the designer's Turkish roots. The 'Stephanie' gown is traced with ruffles and has bracelet-cut bell sleeves. It is finished with a self-tie belt at the waist.
The US$2,695 dress is no longer available in the metallic tone, but the 'Stephanie' style was reissued this season in a black floral print. It is currently available at My Theresa, Matches Fashion, Selfridges, Barneys New York, and the The Modist.
The Duchess swept her brunette locks back into a low chignon and offset it with the Collingwood diamond and pearl drop earrings from Princess Diana's private collection.
On her wrist we also see Princess Diana's three-string pearl bracelet by Nigel Milne.
Kate picked up on the deep red accents in the floral print and opted to accessorize with burgundy pumps (possibly her Gianvito Rossi Royale Burgundy Suede Pumps) and a matching clutch.
The suede minaudiere appears to have an embellished frame and faceted clasp. I believe it is the Jimmy Choo 'Celeste' crystal-embellished suede clutch (US$1,495).
Day 2 of the royal visit will focus on Sweden's pioneering work in the field of mental health and children's wellbeing. In the afternoon, William and Kate will visit one of Sweden's leading department stores – NK – to open an interactive exhibition of UK design, fashion and brands that operate in Sweden. From NK, the royal couple will travel to Haga Palace, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel's official residence, for a private tea. On their last evening in Stockholm, The Duke and Duchess will attend an event at the Fotografiska Gallery, which at night boasts glittering views over Stockholm.
