Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, stepped out at the Coronation dressed in a Kate Middleton-esque cream and black dress that was “very rare”.
Rose looked absolutely beautiful at Coronation
Rose Hanbury, 39, stepped out at King Charles’s Coronation wearing a beautiful black and cream dress designed by Ozzie Clark for Quorum, which dates back to 1970. The black and white dress looked remarkably similar to the black and white Jenny Packham gown worn the day before by Kate Middleton.
On the website, it shows that the dress was sold at an asking price of £773.84.
The dress is described as a “very rare 1970 Ossie Clark for Quorum moss crepe wrap dress”.
The dress’s definition says: “Very rare cream and black moss crepe dress designed by Ossie Clark for Quorum dating to 1970.
Rose also wore Meghan Markle’s Aquazzura pumps
Rose’s dress is vintage Ossie Clark
Princess Kate once wore the wrong dress on a royal tour – and has not worn the gown since
Kate Middleton and Prince William went on a royal tour to the Solomon Islands back in 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee. The Princess of Wales famously made a fashion faux pas during one evening.
“Ossie Clark’s wife at the time, textile designer Celia Birtwell, was painted in this dress in another colourway by David Hockney.
“This portrait was a wedding gift to Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell from best-man David Hockney.”
Raymond “Ossie” Clark, who died in 1996, was a British fashion designer who was a major figure in the Swinging Sixties scene in London.
He was also a huge figure in the fashion industry during that era. Ossie Clark is now renowned for his vintage designs by present-day designers.
Celebrities such as Kate Moss frequently wear his vintage designs today which are certainly coming back in fashion.
Rose teamed her dress with a pair of black £645 Bow Tie Pump 105 Aquazzura heels at the Coronation.
Their description reads: “The ultimate pump with a twist. When designing the Bow Tie Pump, I wanted to represent femininity at its best.
“Marilyn Monroe used to say, ‘Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world’.
Kate wore a similar Jenny Packham dress the day before
“For me, the Bow Tie Pump, with its sleek and sexy design and the playful touch of the bow on the back, is just that.”
These exact shoes were also worn by the Princess of Wales the day before on a royal walkabout.
Not only Kate, but another member of the Royal Family has also worn these Aquazzura heels.
On July 26, 2018, Meghan Markle first stepped out wearing these shoes at the late Queen’s Young Leaders Awards Ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
Meghan has worn these Aquazzura pumps since 2018
The following month, Meghan once again wore the heels to attend a reception at Glencairn, the residence of Robin Barnett, the British Ambassador to Ireland.
In August 2018, the Duchess of Sussex wore the Aquazzura pumps at the wedding of Charlie Van Straubenzee.
Along with a gorgeous bespoke Givenchy black dress, Meghan wore these Aquazzura pumps on her first solo engagement in September 2018 to open “Oceania” at the Royal Academy of Arts.
The last time Meghan was seen wearing these Aquazzura pumps was when she was still a working royal in 2019 at the Festival of Remembrance.
