Princess Beatrice Makes First Public Appearance With Boyfriend Wearing a $9,350 Alaïa Dress

Kate Middleton isn’t the only royal who stepped out for a glamorous evening at the National Portrait Gallery Gala in London last night.

Princess Beatrice of York was also on hand, attending the event with her boyfriend, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. The couple have reportedly been dating since last September but have known each other for years through family. The 30-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah “Fergie” Ferguson chose a burgundy velvet dress featuring a fitted bodice and flared midi skirt with tiered ruffles. The Alaïa frock, which she cinched at the waist with a red belt, retails for $9,350.

The princess chose a pair of navy blue crushed-velvet pumps with a round closed toe and an ankle-strap silhouette to go with her dress. She further accessorized with two bracelets and a black croc-embossed clutch bag. Meanwhile, Mozzi looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo complete with a bow tie and black patent leather shoes for the occasion.
