Sophie's sleeveless dress came complete with a statement red print and she added a pair of her favourite white Penelope Chilvers wedges and her trusty Sophie Habsburg clutch bag. Amazing!

We knew we had seen the dress somewhere before; former First Lady Melania Trump wore the same design in a slightly darker tone for Easter celebrations back in 2018. The wife of Donald wore the statement frock in a similar way - keeping accessories to a bare minimum, but she added a white pair of Christian Louboutin high heels. Fancy!
