February 27, 2019 Runway To Red Carpet

Sophie Okonedo In Emilia Wickstead – Investiture Ceremony

Sophie Okonedo In Emilia Wickstead -  Investiture Ceremony

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.

    Lovely from the ankles up. Shoes are so very vital to completing a whole look and for some reason, shoes often seem like an afterthought to some stylists. There are so many gorgeous shoe options out there and these black pumps are not the right ones for this look. Pastel, nude, floral or even white would have been a much better option. If the weather was too chilly for a Spring Shoe then a nude or pastel bootie or shootie would have worked. But congrats to her on her big day and love the dress and the color on her. Just hate the shoes.

    I absolutely love this dress and how she looks in it! I agree that the lighter veil is a fun and summery addition.

    I get that she wanted a formal/chic shoe but did it really have to be black?!

    I love this dress and agree the shoes are a no. And what veil?

      Are you looking at this on a table? I could not see the veil on my (old) iPad (not enough resolution) but when I looked at it on my laptop, it is apparent.

        Tablet not table.

    I adore this look and Sophie’s styling. So elegant. She wears this much better than the model in the lookbook.

    I hate the black pumps with this. A pair of lavender pumps would have been great.

    Excuse me, Catherine! I have a request, if you’ll have a time for that. There’s fashion shows going on in Paris (I’m sure you’ll include them), and Ezra Miller was on Yves Saint Laurent show looking absolutely gorgeous. Of course would like to see him here again!

    Have a nice day!

      Hi, I just check Getty and those pictures are not part of my subscription. I will ask Saint Laurent if they can send them to me.
