Duchess of Sussex is glam in gold Dior gown for Moroccan reception

The Duchess of Sussex joined the Duke for an evening reception at the British ambassador’s residence. The Duchess chose a beautiful bespoke gown from Dior. The gown evoked a sense of the traditional dress of Morocco with beautiful modest tones, as seen in a lot of Moroccan women’s fashion.

The beautiful gold silk custom Dior gown was intricately embroidered along the edging with a double line of dazzling light catching crystals that sparkled as the Duchess moved.

The gown featured a high twisted cross over draped neckline that flowed down into a long scarf over the back of the gown and billowing waterfall style sleeves that skimmed the floor. The gown was loose and free flowing with a rear zip closure.

The Duchess of Sussex carried a new Dior ‘Bee Chic pochette’ in a gold satin. The small and elegant evening bag has a short top handle and is adorned with a gold and crystal encrusted bee clasp. The Duchess also owns the same clutch in navy satin, minus the bee hardware. This clutch is from a past season and is no longer available.

We are in two different mind sets over this gown. It is our favourite ensemble that Meghan has worn on the tour so far. However, considering the event was at the British ambassador’s residence this was the perfect opportunity to showcases a British designer, perhaps an embroidered gown from Temperley. Even wearing a local designer to help promote Moroccan fashion.

The British Ambassador for Morocco had his Instagram post go viral after his excitement and nervousness for the correct sartorial sock decision caused him much agony. He called upon users to help pick the right Union Jack sock to meet the Duke and Duchess on Saturday. People absolutely loved his patriotic enthusiasm with his clothing choices. This same kind of patriotism for British designers will win the Duchess much favour from the public.
