Sophie wore Roksanda’s ‘Tatum’ dress, retailing for £1,595. This fit and flare tea length dress has a very striking asymmetric colour block print in pink, mauve and purple diagonal bands. The dress has a round neckline, is sleeveless with a fitted bodice and concealed zip closure. This style, silhouette and length of dress is very typical of the Countess to wear and looks very flattering on her. You can purchase this dress here, here and here.

Roksanda ‘Tatum’ Dress

The Countess wore an ALAÏA cardigan, retailing for £759. A cropped cardigan in a bright burgundy colour way with crew neck and button down placket. The cardigan has three quarter sleeves, a slight hem at the bottom and is made from a blend of viscose/polyester. This is a nice cardigan, but we are unsure about the colouring with the purple and pink colour-block of the dress being so bold. The red colour of the cardigan seems to clash a little, perhaps just a cream cardigan to match the heels. You can purchase this cardigan here. Get an affordable replicate here.

ALAÏA Cardigan

Sophie carried her Noble MacMillian ‘Tassel Pouch’, retailing for £99. A large sized leather pouch in Cyclamen colourway, with a zip top and detachable gold ring tassel. Sophie carries this pouch on occasion and even Lady Louise has borrowed this – see our article from Easter here for a look at Louise’s outfit, featuring her mother’s bag. It is a perfect sized day or night clutch.

Today we noticed a new feature on this pouch that we had not seen before on previous engagements. A large gold letter ‘S’ embossed onto the pouch. You can purchase this pouch here. Get a nice replicate here.
