Sophie, Countess of Wessex In Antonio Berardi - British Wheelchair Basketball Announcement

Sophie, Countess of Wessex was announced as Royal Patron for British Wheelchair Basketball in London earlier today.

When asked about the birth of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s son, an elated Sophie said she feels “ridiculously happy” for the new parents.

“I’m so excited for them both,” she said, smiling broadly. “It’s a wonderful event. Everybody’s absolutely thrilled as you can imagine.”

She wore a white Antonio Berardi form-fitting crepe dress which creates a beautiful hourglass silhouette and features cut-out details at the neckline.

The dress couldn’t be more perfect, so it’s a shame about the styling.

Her raffia clutch gets a pass, but the nude sheer tights and nude pumps combo lets down all the good work going on here.

You may remember that Kristin Davis wore a flirtatious fit-and-flare version of this dress on Leno last month.
