Sophie Okonedo attended a ceremony to collect her CBE for her Services to Drama held at Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday (February 26).
Beaming with joy, the actress wore a very chic, and appropriate, ‘Glenda’ dress from the Emilia Wickstead Pre-Fall 2019 collection.
I adore the colour, the exquisite cut and the fit, but I’m on the fence about the veil.
I get that if you’re not going to wear a veil to Buckingham Palace, where are you going to wear it? (aside from Ascot and a wedding), my issue is more the colour.
Should she have gone matchy, or does the lighter colour add a touch of Spring to this Fall-hued dress?
As I’m typing, I feel myself leaning towards the latter. But I definitely would’ve preferred the look book shoes.
