Is the Countess of Wessex Gabby Logan's new style icon?

Both blonde, both have impeccable dress sense...

TV star Gabby Logan looked incredible on Monday evening as she hosted the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards. The blonde star dressed to impress in her a navy blue midi dress by Azzedine Alaïa. The scalloped number was a close-fitting frock, made from a springy, stretch-knit and flecked with festive silver threads. It cinches in at the waist and flares out to a full skirt. Priced at whopping £2290, it really is a timeless design. Think you've seen it before? You would be right! The Countess of Wessex wore the same design back in October, to Princess Eugenie's wedding. The wife of Prince Edward looked stunning her dress - and added a navy blue fascinator from her favourite hat designer Jane Taylor, and the mum-of-two accessorised with a striking bracelet and pretty drop earrings.

What's more, at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May, Sophie's daughter Lady Louise Windsor followed in her mother's footsteps and also wore a dress by Alaïa.
