The day before Remembrance Day, Sophie, the Duchess of Edinburgh, joined the rest of the royal family at the traditional Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, where she surprised everyone with her choice of dress.
The 58-year-old Duchess has shown that her style is improving with time, and since she debuted her new royal title, there are many times that she has surpassed Kate Middleton, considered one of the best-dressed royals.
Sophie at Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance
Sophie chose an outfit consisting of a black dress with semi-transparent lace sleeves in velvet by ME+EM’, one of Sophie’s favorite fashion brands.
The model chosen by Queen Elizabeth’s favorite daughter-in-law presents a fitted silhouette and with flight. This long dress with a high neckline is a successful garment that even took Kate Middleton’s place as the best dressed of the evening.
Kate didn’t look bad either, but comparing the styles of the two royals, Sophie’s outfit undoubtedly stood out for its modernity.
To complete her outfit, the Duchess of Edinburgh wore her hair in an updo and kept her makeup looking natural.
As an extra detail, her hands were covered in pink nail polish, something very unusual among the women of the British royal family, who usually wear discreet nail polish, preferably transparent.
