For the second day of the racing at Cheltenham, Zara Tindall looked radiant in purple. She was joined by her mother, Princess Anne, and husband Mike.
Zara opted for a bespoke Pip Howeson coat, an altered version of the ‘Margot’. Featuring a double-breasted front and deep, flap pockets on the diagonal, once more Zara has had hers made into a funnel neck, rather than a v-neck with lapels and shortened the length. She has also swapped the military buttons for horn/wood effect ones and had a leather trim added to the pocket seam.
The Pip Howeson site says the Margot was inspired by a Russian Cavalry officer’s overcoat that the designer saw in the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg. It costs £2850 and can be ordered here.
We caught a glimpse of her dress below, which was a Ted Baker ‘Duclin Fortune mini shirt dress’. The piece features a high-neckline with pleat detail (as seen in a number of the label’s pieces), which is repeated at the cuffs, a tie-fastening keyhole to the front, and an empire waistline that moves into pleats and the mini skirt, which also has pockets. The fabric is in their fortune floral print. It is currently on sale for £111 here.
Zara went simple with her shoes, and chose Sergio Rossi knot shoe boots. These unusual heels feature 10cm concave heel, with zip fastening to the rear, and a leather sole with gold SR stud. The front of the foot showcases ruching and knots leading to a pointed toe. They originally sold for £780, and are available in smaller sizes for just £230 here.
Zara carried an Aspinal of London ‘Letterbox Saddle bag’ in burgundy pebble leather, costing £495. This bag features a typical saddle bag half-moon shape, with a top handle and optional shoulder strap (which can be monogrammed), with a letterbox-style closure with Aspinal branding. To the back there is a credit card slot, embossed with the Aspinal logo, and inside is simply one compartment with a zip pocket. We love this piece, and The Duchess of Cornwall does too – she has one in black. Try this as a great match.
Zara’s hat was another bespoke piece from Juliette Botterill. The designer says it was a version of the ‘Floral feather teardop hat’, but the only similarity we can see is the base shape! The original has small silk flowers and diamond cut feathers, but Zara’s only features the feathers at the apex of the hat, with a bare feather stem at an opposite angle. We love this piece, simply gorgeous.
For jewellery, she wore her own Calleja ‘Saddle’ earrings in gold. These pave-set earrings are in a concave shape, mimicking that of a saddle. We show them below in white gold, which are still available for £3550 here or in rose gold with pink diamonds here (£5990).
She finished her look with burgundy leather gloves.
