The socialite and model, who is Earl Spencer’s daughter and, perhaps more famously, Princess Diana’s niece, celebrated the opening of the new Brunello Cucinelli boutique in the magnificent setting of Venice’s historic Palazzo della Borsa e della Camera di Commercio. Wearing the dreamiest three-piece suit, Lady Kitty Spencer was joined by her younger twin sisters Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer, who all exuded summer elegance in tonal head-to-toe Brunello Cucinelli looks.
