With Lady Gabriella Windsor’s wedding to Thomas Kingston mere hours away, let’s take a look at the fashion style of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent’s daughter.

Appearing to be a traditionalist at heart, Lady Gabriella chooses refined bespoke luxury pieces from British designers, Catherine Walker, Beulah London and Claire Mischevani, and hats from renown Scottish milliner Philip Treacy.
From beautifully tailored dress coats to skirt suits and broiderie lace dresses, Lady Gabriella Windsor knows what suits her and her wardrobe is a sophisticated selection of high end couture fashion.
Let’s take a look at some of Gabriella’s outfits:
For Pippa Middleton’s wedding Lady Gabriella wore Catherine Walker ‘Maxine’ jacket and a bespoke matching dress (we show a similar design only). She added a Philip Treacy upturned brim hat with rose embellishment and what appear to be Stuart Weitzman nude suede pumps.
For Trooping the Colour 2016 Lady Gabriella chose the Catherine Walker ‘Markham’ taupe shift dress and matching high mandarin collar jacket with pale aquamarine contrast trim and hidden front fastenings. Gabriella wore a Philip Treacy taupe wide brim hat with over size wide scrolled buntal twists; Camilla owns a very similar piece.
To attend the National Service of Thanksgiving for The Queen’s 90th birthday in June 2016, Lady Gabriella chose a Catherine Walker ‘Scarlet Nero’ coat. She paired it with a Philip Treacy white wide brim hat with buntal twisting scrolls, flowers and netting and Stuart Weitzman nude suede platform pumps. Her sister-in-law, Lady Frederick Windsor (Sophie), also chose Catherine Walker, wearing the ‘Etoile’ coat in Orange.
Interestingly, the model for the hat is wearing the same Barbara Cassola knitted dress that The Duchess of Cambridge owns.
At memorial service for Mark Shand in September 2014, the bride-to-be wore a bespoke Catherine Walker coat. It was a combination of the ‘Safari Coat’ and the ‘Heathcliffe Coat’. She opted for a black parasisal Philip Treacy hat with two black sharply pointed quills, and what appear to be black suede platform pumps from L.K. Bennett, though these could also be Stuart Weiztman.
For the annual Trooping the Colour Parade in 2013 Lady Gabriella was seen on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in the Catherine Walker ‘Alice Coat’. The soft blue grey coat has a winding seam of silk along the edge. Gabriella added a sharply angled Philip Treacy hat with upturned brim and oversized loops.
For the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2011, Lady Gabriella wore a bespoke Catherine Walker coat dress – a combination of the ‘Simone’ and ‘Clematis Star’ coats. The pale mint green coat has a sweeping v-neck collar, three front centre buttons, three-quarter sleeves and a fit and flare skirt with slight pleated drops. Lady Gabriella added a dramatically tilted teal sinamay hat from Philip Treacy with large flowers and pointed quill detail on the side. Lady Gabriella also carried a matching teal rectangular top frame clutch, nude bow court pumps and for that extra royal touch, wore a pair of white gloves.
For Trooping the Colour 2018, Lady Gabriella moved away from Catherine Walker and choose a bespoke piece from Claire Mischevani. The coat is a combination of the ‘Balancoire Bow Coat’ and the ‘Sapphire Gross Grain A-line Coat’. It features a high mandarin split neck collar, three buttons down the centre, three-quarter length sleeves and a fit and flare skirt. Gabriella again chose a tilted swept-up brim hat from Philip Treacy in cream with a floral bouquet and swirled buntal twist embellishment.
Lady Gabriella attended the first day of Royal Ascot in 2017 wearing a Claire Mischevani ‘Sunflower Yellow 50’s style A-line coat’. The vintage style coat features a peter pan rounded collar with fitted waistline and fit and flare knee-length skirt. Gabriella added an ivory sinamy titled wide brim hat from Philip Treacy adored with a multitude of wild twisting buntal scrolls. Lady Gabriella carried a
Bottega Veneta ‘Canard’ crocodile clutch in dark teal leather Solantu ‘Paloma’ clutch with angled front flap (picture to be updated for the bag).
To attend the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank, Lady Gabriella chose another bespoke Claire Mischevani creation. Gabriella wore a combination of the ‘Emerald Raglan Sleeve Dress’, and the ‘Pale Blue Raglan Sleeve Dress’, (that we recently saw Princess Beatrice wear this week to the Duke of Edinburgh Awards). Lady Gabriella added a teal felt angled Philip Treacy hat, a pale mint Bottega Veneta stretch rope clutch and nude patent leather court pumps.
To attend Royal Ascot (day 3) in 2018, Lady Gabriella Windsor wore a Claire Mischevani ‘Scarf Hem Dress’ in lemon yellow. The exquisite dress has a v-neck line with centre buttons, a pleated bodice, a cinch waist with pleated folds, three-quarter length sleeves and a tea-length scarf hem skirt. Lady Gabriella added a daring hot pink wide brim angled Philip Treacy hat with buntal scrolls.
Lady Gabriella Windsor attended the Beulah London store opening with Natasha Rufus Issacs in May 2018. She wore a Beulah London ‘Ahana Organic Cotton Broderie Anglaise Dress’. If you look very closely in the background at the rack of dresses, you will notice the blue and white patterned Beulah London dress that Autumn Phillips wore to Royal Ascot last year. Lady Gabriella carried her Bottega Veneta pale green stretch rope clutch.
In May of 2018 Lady Gabriella attended the Hello Magazine 30th Anniversary Party at Dover Street Market. She wore the Beulah London ‘Maia Shirt Dress in Red Oriental Print’. The pretty and feminine shirt dress has a high frill collar with three-quarter length sleeves ending in bell cuffs, a button placket down the front centre of the dress and self tie belt. The vibrant red dress has a clashing pink and green floral pattern throughout.
Lady Gabriella Windsor wore the Beulah London ‘Rapunzel’ dress to attend the Kids Company Heart of Gold fundraising dinner at Porchester Hall in March 2014. This beautiful black satin cap sleeve column gown features a blue, gold and white confetti pattern over the dress, a very elegant yet fun piece.
Wearing the Beulah London ‘Painted Lady Gown’ in black, Lady Gabriella attended the Masterpiece Mid Summer Party at Royal Hospital Chelsea back in 2012. We have also seen Pippa Middleton wearing the same dress, though in a purple colour-way to a friend’s wedding.
Wow! That is a lot of fashion information at once. Hope this gives you a little bit of a better guide to Lady Gabriella’s fashion style. We have not included all IDs of her clothing in this article.
Will Lady Gabriella’s love of bespoke tailoring dictate her wedding gown choice?
