Countess Sophie's stunning geometric dress wows at new appearance

We love this colourful outfit!

The Countess of Wessex appeared at a special engagement on Wednesday, sitting for a live sculpting session as part of a special event for the Vision Foundation.

And for the important occasion, she chose a beautiful geometric dress in orange, white and black – with an elegant flowing skirt that was perfect for the warmer weather.

To finish the look, she pulled her blonde hair back into a chic chignon and kept her makeup soft and natural as usual, adding a simple pair of earrings and a gold bracelet to accessorize.

We've tracked down Sophie's dress – and it's a luxurious piece from one of her favourite designers, DVF Diane von Furstenberg. Costing £576, it's still available to shop if you fancy stealing the royal's style.

We've also found a more affordable alternative on the high street! We love Hobbs' Suzanna dress, which features a similar print in orange, white and navy – plus it's in the sale, reduced from £139 to £75.

Sophie, 55, joined Frances Segelman at her London studio as the sculptor created a bust designed for blind and partially sighted people.

Once completed, the bust will provide an opportunity for blind and partially sighted people to know the Countess of Wessex’s likeness, as part of the Vision Foundation's effort to help blind and partially sighted people access art in a meaningful way.

Sophie said: "Thank you to Frances for sculpting my face today. This sculpture, and the faces of many others, will allow the blind and partially sighted to see through touch and so to more vividly imagine their world.
