On Monday, Princess Eugenie looked stunning as she headed out for lunch at The Audley pub in Mayfair before an exclusive dinner that her sister, Princess Beatrice was hosting, alongside Aerin Lauder.

Mother-of-two Eugenie wowed onlookers, wearing a delightful outfit which consisted of the 'Gil Tiered Satin-Jacquard Midi Dress' from Diane von Furstenberg in a vibrant purple hue with the 'Gianvito 105' Praline Suede Pumps from Gianvito Rossi.

Held at the wonderful Twenty Two in Grosvenor Square, guests were seated in the luxury hotel's private dining room, surrounded by a plethora of pretty blooms and florals by Willow Crossley.

The exclusive soiree was to celebrate designer Mark Cross, who has just launched a capsule collection in collaboration with AERIN, the global luxury lifestyle brand founded by Aerin herself. The collection consists of four utilitarian bags, all crafted in Italy from natural canvas and trimmed in vachetta leather. The collection drops online at the end of this month and shoppers are excited to get their hands on this fabulous arm candy.

Seeing that the capital is a mass of flowers due to the Chelsea Flower Show taking place this week, guests were given stunning mini floral bouquets from the table display alongside a selection of Mark Cross bags and an Aerin fragrance of their choice.
