Over the past year a very glamorous relationship has been growing between the Dolce & Gabbana boys and the new gen of cool British royals, and no more so than with the Italian design duo stepping up to dress Lady Kitty Spencer both on and off the runway. Her glorious green floral dress at Meghan and Harry’s wedding was their handiwork, but she has worn the brand’s other ladylike creations at many other high profile events.
Kitty has become a regular on their runways (it all started last year for A/W 2017) and just this week was included in the brand’s Alta Moda (essentially like an Italian version of Haute Couture) show in Lake Como alongside models such as Naomi Campbell and Halima, as well as fellow aristocrats like Vicountess Weymouth. Kitty shared her excitement and emotion as being a vital part of such a jaw-droppingly beautiful show via one particularly adorable video post on Instagram where she said of her role in opening the show: “Happy tears & laughter! My Alta Moda fitting for @dolcegabbana. I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of their creation and the honour of being ‘Lucia’ in their I Promessi Sposi-inspired show yesterday. I adore this group of people @tabithasimmons @stefanogabbana & Domenico Dolce ♥️”
In her bodiced corset, elaborate tiara and full, painterly skirt, Kitty looked every inch the romantic fairytale heroine starring in a show inspired by the famous Italian novel, The Betrothed by Alessandro Manzoni.
In addition the new fashion darling wore a second and third gown following the show for her off-runway appearances: both were intricately printed chiffon maxis styled with up ‘dos and twinkling statement earrings. Keep scrolling to see all of the dreamiest moments from this grand fashion event.
Okay, back to normal life now.
