If you care, Kate Middleton wore a dress.
It’s not just any dress, though, it’s a ‘Vampire’s Wife’ dress – whatever that is.
The Guardian detailed why we should be making a noise about this particular fashion moment.
Kate wore the dress on her recent tour of Ireland. It’s a modest dress, covering a considerable amount of skin – appropriate for a charity fundraiser.
The dress is also making waves because it’s worn by both Royals and rock musicians. Those two don’t usually mix.
“Back in 2018, Rachel Weisz wore a floor-length, deepest aubergine version to the Baftas, Margot Robbie wore the same in crimson to a wedding in Australia and Jennifer Aniston chose an identical frock for a Jimmy Kimmel appearance.
Last year, Kate Moss appeared in a Vampire’s Wife campaign modelling a shorter version, the Mayhem, while Princess Beatrice wore the Falconetti to Ellie Goulding’s wedding. This dress has crossed every divide: from London to LA, from music to fashion, and from alternative to establishment,” The Guardian explained.
The dress was created by Susie Cave, 53-year-old former model and designer, and wife to goth-rock musician Nick Cave – her ‘Vampire’.
When Susie’s label was launched in 2014, the designer played it safe with a broad scope of trendy florals and bohemian skirts.
Sadly, in 2015, Nick and Susie lost their 15-year-old son in a tragic accident and Susie’s grief meant that her designs fell on the wayside.
A few months later, Susie was encouraged by her friends and family to use her passion and talent for fashion as a way to distract her and, ultimately, heal.
In a 2017 interview, Susie explained how, “To be honest, work is what has saved me”.
