The £450 design is made from silk and has a dipped hemline, as well as a pleated front. It's the kind of number that can be worn casually with trainers or heels for a night out.

It's not just Kim, Olympics presenter Gabby Logan has also been spotted in the fancy design, too! Back in August, the star was joined in the BBC studio by sporting heroes Michael Johnson, Denise Lewis and Jessica Ennis-Hill, and social media users were quick to point out they were all perfectly coordinated in pink, while we couldn't help but notice Gabby was wearing the famous ME+EM dress.

The story behind the pink dress is a beautiful one. In clips shared to Prince William and Kate's YouTube channel, the Duchess took part in a moving phone call with Lynda Sneddon and her daughter Mila, whose photo was included in her book, Hold Still. Mila, who is undergoing chemotherapy, was featured in an iconic picture from Kate’s lockdown photographic project and came to symbolise isolation during the pandemic after she was pictured kissing her home's kitchen window as her father stood outside.

During the call, Kate made a sweet promise to the little girl that she would wear a pink dress when they were able to meet. The pair finally met at the Palace of Holyroodhouse - and when Kate walked into the room the face of the little girl, who was joined by her parents, lit up. Magical!
