The mother-of-one donned a lovely, past-season, navy blue dress by Sandro Paris, known as the 'Natalie.' The pretty mini dress had lovely cream contrasting ruffle sleeves and a pie-crust neckline. If this neckline looks familiar, that's because it was made famous by the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

The pie crust collar was a key feature in Diana's wardrobe throughout the 80s - she often teamed hers with a skirt suit, midi skirt or pinstripe trousers. Every time we see this vintage-esque look, we think of Prince Charles' former wife and her amazing dress sense.
