Commonwealth Youth Garden Party at Marlborough House

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke & Duchess of Sussex at Marlborough House, July 5 2018

The Duchess of Sussex ditched the neutrals and pinks tonight for a vibrant yellow sheath dress from American designer Brandon Maxwell to attend a Commonwealth Youth garden party at London's Marlborough House. Her Royal Highness accessorized with very minimal jewelry (except that three-stone diamond engagement ring!) and taupe suede Manolo Blahniks.

This outfit initially struck me as a missed opportunity for some statement earrings - but then I remembered that Chocolate Duchess doesn't seem to do big jewelry (minus that three-stone diamond engagement ring and sparkling wedding tiara). So instead, I'll say she channeled Audrey Hepburn - from the sleek lines and bateau neckline to the elegant chignon and lack of adornment.

Happy summer Chocolate Duchess fans!
