The Countess of Wessex hosted an Afternoon Tea at Buckingham Palace on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Scar Free Foundation. Scar Free Foundation is focused on advancing medical research in the areas of wound healing, burns and cleft lips. The Countess is the Patron of the Scar Free Foundation since 2002 and she opened the Foundation’s Centre for Conflict Wound Research at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, last November. The Duchess wore a wool knit dress by Azzedine Alaïa.

  1. The dress is lovely and the Countess looks smart and festive in it. Alaia is known for his excellent (and sometimes unusual) shaping. She appears to have 2 different hairstyles as well: a clip and then a pony tail. I love how engaged she is with the dear child and her commitment to such a worthy cause.

  3. This is a beautiful dress on C. Sophie - lovely colour, good fit, and flattering length. I really dislike the plastic clip in her hair though. It’s way too casual. (V.M.)

  7. Très joli look festif tant dans la couleur que de la bonne coupe ; la longueur flatte sa silhouette !

  8. The Countess of Wessex has the ability to show compassion and respect to other people. She doesn't make a star of herself, yet she is still elegant. If other members of the British royal family (!) act like her, they would not have to complain about the media attacks.

  9. Nice dress I would have opted for reg pumps. I must say she does well with children.

  10. Funny how we (I include myself) kind of forgive her for her lack of "nice" hairstyle while we comment more on Maxima's look. Maybe because hers looks like key and Maximas looks disastrous?
    I find her dress lovely
