Back in 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a visit to Dublin, Ireland and now Kate Middleton’s green dress is making history.

Making fashion history

According to Irish Central, the emerald green gown designed by Susie Cave of The Vampire’s Wife, worn by Kate has been named the ‘Dress of the Decade’ by Vogue. The dress has reportedly been dubbed the ‘Guinness dress’ as the royal couple made a visit to the Guinness Storehouse, an iconic spot and the most popular tourist attraction in the Republic of Ireland.

Also known as the Falconetti dress, the Duchess isn’t the only A-list celebrity to wear the gown over the years. The Falconetti dress has been worn by Alexa Chung, Jennifer Aniston, Elisabeth Moss, English television presenter Emma Willis, English actress Charlotte Riley, and Kirsten Dunst, to name but a few.

Here’s what British Vogue said about Kate’s designer piece:

“Kate Moss, an early admirer of her fellow ’90s catwalk queen’s work, describes Cave’s frilly-hemmed frocks as “Little House on the Prairie dresses” gone luxe. Florence Welch, who wears the old-fashioned designs on and off-stage says, “They make you look like you’re practising witchcraft in a very romantic cult”. Princess Beatrice, Cate Blanchett, and Jennifer Aniston have all emulated Cave’s gothic heroine-meets-Victorian lady sensibility in the Falconetti.

And, circa 2018, there was not a red carpet that didn’t witness its ethereal sisters – the Festival, the Cinderella, and the Belle – swishing past the cameras. The Vampire’s Wife’s unassumingly sexy dresses looked good on everyone.”

It is said that the dress of the decade Kate wore is estimated to cost £1,595 (R32 768) of The Vampire’s Wife website. The Vampire’s Wife has been going from strength to strength since being founded by Susie Cave in 2016. Along with dressing celebs and royalty, Suzie who is married to the singer Nick Cave dressed everyone’s favourite assassin Villanelle in the third season of Killing Eve and has just launched her first collaboration with H&M.
