Princess Eugenie recently made a surprise appearance in Abu Dhabi, turning heads with her impeccable fashion sense at an art exhibition. 

The daughter of Sarah Ferguson showcased her dedication to the arts as she explored the creative works of artists Bushra Waqas Khan and Wardha Shabbir.

Dressed in a timeless Chanel tweed jacket paired with a sophisticated long black Zara skirt, Princess Eugenie effortlessly blended royal elegance with her genuine curiosity for art. While her chic jacket garnered praise from fashion enthusiasts, it was her choice of footwear that truly caught our attention.

Eugenie opted for Dune's Hopeful ballet shoes, a high-street find that perfectly complemented her overall look. Despite their affordability, these trending shoes exuded designer vibes and aligned with one of the season's most versatile trends. The point-toed silhouette featured a low-block heel for comfort, with the upper crafted from premium materials and adorned with Dune's signature 'mirror-D' snaffle trim.
