The young royal joined the likes of Florence Welch and Christopher Bailey at the Britain Creates 2012: Fashion & Art Collusion VIP gala in London
Princess Beatrice pulled off her most fashionable look to date last night, as she rubbed shoulders with the cream of the British fashion industry at a glitzy gala in London.
The 23-year-old wore a pale pink long-sleeved dress with royal blue (natch) cuffs by London-based designer Roksanda Illincic to walk the red carpet as the guest of honour at the Britain Creates 2012: Fashion & Art Collusion VIP event held at the Old Selfridges Hotel. The princess’ accessories were all by UK-based designers too, including a pair of blue patterned Nicholas Kirkwood pumps and an sparkly pink clutch by Anya Hindmarch.
Princess Beatrice wasn’t the only one to pull off a stylish gala look. Singer Florence Welch wowed onlookers in a dramatic black gown with sexy sheer layers and twinkling embellishment from Julien Macdonald’s yet-to-be-seen autumn/winter 2012 collection, while fellow songstress Eliza Doolittle and Holly Valance also wore their party best.
A whole host of leading fashion designers were also in attendance at the gala to celebrate the series of works commissioned for the London Festival 2012, including Burberry’s Creative Director Christopher Baiely, Giles Deacon, Maria Grachvogel, Jonathan Saunders, Bally’s Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz, and milliner Stephen Jones.
Britain Creates 2012: Fashion & Art Collusion will be on display at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum from 6th July.
