Middleton wore a floor-length pink sequined gown from The Vampire’s Wife that featured a now-viral silhouette. The garment had ruffled shoulders and short sleeves that elevated her punchy gown. In fact, searches for “ruffle dress” jumped 288% in the hours following her appearance, according to Lovethesales.com, a global fashion marketplace that tracks the demand and sales data from over 12 million global shoppers across 16,000 brands and retailers. Middleton fans also boosted the visibility of The Vampire’s Wife, with the brand receiving a 34% increase in searches.

As for accessories, she went with a white clutch handbag, outlined in silver, adorned in a black crocheted floral print for a sophisticated touch. A pair of eye-catching gold dangling circular earrings by Onitaa provided an extra touch of glimmer.

Although her shoes got covered up by her billowing hemline, some photos revealed that the duchess wore Jimmy Choo’s Mimi Sandals. The luxury label’s design features a caged toebed, double straps around the ankle and a 4-inch stiletto heel.
