Sophie looked incredible in the elegant floral tea dress

Sophie wore the 'Heart Leaves' classic silk tea dress from Suzannah London, a designer she has worn several times before. The description reads that the pure silk, vintage-inspired dress was: "inspired by the leaves on a Gingko tree."

"Based on our best selling 1930's silk tea dress block, this signature style is beautifully flattering with unique charm and versatility. The print has been digitally printed onto Italian silk crepe de chine, by our expert silk mill in Como, Italy."
