The Countess of Wessex GCVO was sculpted live in front of an online audience in support of the Vision Foundation. The Countess of Wessex sat for a sculpture session with the artist Frances Segelman (also known as Lady Petchey) to create a piece designed for blind and partially-sighted people, which will provide an opportunity for them to know The Countess of Wessex’s likeness.

The two-hour sitting was live-streamed for supporters and guests of the charity Vision Foundation. The virtual event was co-hosted by the Vision Foundation’s Chief Executive, Olivia Curno, and the broadcaster and former ITV News Medical Correspondent, Sue Saville.

  4. Modèle de robe à imprimé graphique tout à fait à mon goût mais j'espère que la comtesse ne portait pas des bottes comme sur le mannequin ; je l'aurais vue avec des chaussures plus légères !

  6. I know is my pet peeve, but a good brassiere would have made a difference. This is a lovely dress , but totally ruined by the lack of proper undergarments.

  7. Very flattering and natural look. Never over the top. The Queen must love her.

  8. Oh no, i am sorry but this dress is so not suitable voor Sophie. She should never wear sleavless tops or dresses. Unfortunately she does this often. I cannot wear it either. Sophie is definately not a big woman but this dress makes her big en looking old. Such a pitty.

    1. She should absolutely wear what she wants - there is nothing wrong with her arms. She looks neither "big" nor "old".

  9. No need to hide those (or anyone's) arms, they are perectly natural and normal arms of an adult female. The same goes for her figure in other respects as well.

  11. I like her dress - the print is nice. It suits her. I like her hair backline this.

  12. Welcome back Cherry... I totally agree with you about the undergarments, in fact not sure if she is wearing a brassiere, it completely spoils the look. Nothing wrong with showing her arms, we are in the 21st century, and her arms look perfectly fine in my book.

  13. Nice dress and she wears it well. I would have preferred her hair and down and slightly curled.

  15. Nice summery dress--it's very warm in the UK this week. Brave of her to go sleeveless---good for her for not feeling she has to conform to the expectation of sleeves for anyone not blessed with arms like Queen Letizia. Don't think the sculpture does her justice.

  16. I like this dress. It looks like it is a good length, not a midi+, as we so often see her wearing. There is nothing wrong with her showing her arms. I don't notice any excess skin under her arms that she may want to hide. She is not built like a stick figure, but she doesn't have to be. The bust needs an uplift, not the clay bust but the one on her chest.

  17. This is a beautiful dress, the Countess looks lovely in it. I do like sleeves though personal preference only, but I think it would give this dress a totally different look.
