She hasn’t been at the royal business as long as some others, but Stéphanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, has made many evening appearances. Today we’re asking you to render judgment on which one will be the community choice in the Hofdame Hall of Fame, Evening Division.
The Hofdames found their own entry in this division a surprisingly hard choice. On reflection, we liked a lot of her gowns more than we did the first time around. Our Hall of Fame decision surprised even us!
The Hofdame Hall of Fame entry for Stéphanie is the Grecian draped evening gown she wore to Princess Madeleine’s pre-wedding festivities in 2013. The draping is fantastically flattering to her, but what makes it Hall of Fame worthy is that it’s very royal and very memorable. It’s not an ensemble you would see on just anyone, and it firmly announces “Here is a Hereditary Grand Duchess at an Event”.
… the design might be Elie Saab as the gown looks a whole lot like his designs in general and her clutch is by Saab – a special thanks to the Royal Couturier – which is always a strong indicator. Her diamond earrings belong to the Lannoy family, Stephanie’s sister Countess Isabelle wore them for the pre-wedding gala last year.Luxurazzi
The runners up included the crusty Elie Saab she wore to her own pre-wedding dinner, and the fabulous flattering and youthful Ralph Lauren gown – paired with fabulous ruby earrings – she wore to the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. That one was so good Crown Princess Victoria also gave it a wear.
