Sarah Ferguson is nothing if not a head-turner, and she’s just done it again, dazzling in a semi-sheer gown at a charity event.

Photographed arriving to The Butterfly Ball in London, Fergie rocked a floor-length gown with a sheer neckline and sleeves, adding the former royal’s customary kick of spice to a classic look.

The black frock was also adorned with intricate gold detailing which snaked across the bodice and up the arms, and was complimented by the former Duchess’ ginger locks.

The 59-year-old attended the ball, which aims to raise funds for children and families affected by disability, alongside a host of other familiar British faces.

It’s not the first time she’s whipped out the dramatic number, an event in Germany earlier in the year gave us our first peek of the dress, but where better than a charity event to reduce, reuse and recycle?

Rumours of rekindling

The mother of Beatrice and Eugenie and former wife of Prince Andrew, Fergie is a common sight at charitable events, and often joins her daughters and former husband in supporting good causes.

Former royal though she is, there are those who believe she may reclaim the Duchess of York title at some point.

The former Duchess is so supportive of her ex that rumours of a reunion have placed the pair firmly back in the spotlight.

They have remained extremely close since their divorce in the 1990’s, living in the same home since 2009.

Fergie is also quick to praise her ex on social media, a fact that has continued to perpetuate rumours of a relationship reboot.

Most recently, the Trooping the Colour prompted Fergie to take to Instagram, gushing about how ‘proud’ she was of her ex-husband.

Though she simply insists they are ‘the happiest divorce couple in the world’, a scent of reconciliation seems to follow in her wake.

Frankly, in that black and gold extravaganza we’re betting any reunion will be sooner rather than later.
