While watching the royal wedding coverage this morning, I spotted three guests in the crowd wearing the same dress. The Festival dress from The Vampire's Wife has become a celebrity favorite thanks to its universally flattering shape. The round neck, nipped-in waist, midi-length skirt, and elbow-length sleeves adorned with frilly cuffs are more versatile than you might think. At the royal wedding, there were three iterations of the Festival, which looked totally different, confirming this is a dress that will work within any wardrobe.

Style Notes: A guest wears the dress in a pink-and–pale blue colorway.
Style Notes: Sara Buys wears a blue velvet version with silver metallic cuffs and trim.
Style Notes: Charlotte Riley wears a bespoke floral The Vampire's Wife dress with the signature ruffles at the hem and cuffs.
The likes of Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, and Keira Knightley all keep wearing this party dress also, showing it can look totally different every time. The silhouette always remains the same, however, it can look unique, as it is available in dozens of prints, colorways, and fabrics. The brown corduroy version looks like a totally different dress to the red ruffled velvet version.
