While ladies were expected to wear a day dress with hat, do you think Cara’s outfit was fashion forward or rude and declassé?

Princess Eugenie of York, who is ninth in line of succession to the British throne, donned an elegant gown by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos featuring an open back and a long train.

She also wore bespoke shoes by Charlotte Olympia and the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by the Queen. The tiara, which is rarely seen in public, was made in 1919 in the fashionable “kokoshnik” style popularized in the Russian Imperial Court.

The low back feature was specifically requested by Princess Eugenie, who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis, a medical condition in which a person’s spine has a sideways curve.

She has spoken of the importance of showing “people your scars” and is a patron of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Appeal.
