Yesterday (October 11th) The Monégasques AKA Albert and Charlene arrived in Florence, Italy. and today’s morning, they left!
But before you get disappointed with the brief visit let me tell you that we had 3 outfits, with a gown included, and guess what? A new designer!
Avec Le Prince, Her Serene Highness arrived to meet Florence mayor Matteo Renzi and his wife -who was wearing Erdem I suppose- wearing a recycled gold/beige Akris dress, The same she wore to the Akris Spring/Summer 2012 Fashion Show in Paris last year, The dress comes from the Fall 2011 collection.
On top of it she wore a new beige/oatmeal Akris coat that I assume we’re gonna see often. She teamed this all beige outfit with beige/taupe -of course- Vikki pumps by Jimmy Choo.
And for The Ballo del Giglio at night, The Princess chose a black halterneck ruffled silk chiffon gown, embroidered on the waist that it almost looks like a belt and backless, She paired it with a black and gold clutch, and night sandals.
All by……… Gucci!!!
|You better open it in a tab of its own since it’s HUGE!|
At first when I saw this gown, I thought it was Ralph Lauren, since she wears Ralph Lauren often, then I remembered that I have seen something similar in Gucci’s fall collection. Not just that, I actually got it confirmed from Gucci that the whole outfit is designed by them!
The gown is costum made, based on looks from the Fall/Winter 2012 collection.
Another version of the dress on Neiman Marcus retails for 16,000$
