The Countess of Wessex visited Washington, D.C. looking ravishing in red. She sported a festive red mini dress by Alaia, which displayed mid-length sleeves, a flared silhouette, a rounded neckline and a feminine lace exterior.

The frock, which was named the 'Lace Overlay Flared Dress' by the design team at Maison Alaia, was sweetly teamed with Lanvin's 'Embellished Belted Wool, Cashmere and Silk-Blend Coat' in elephant grey to craft a snug yet sophisticated look.

The beloved royal added a pinch of sparkle to her subdued tonal attire by accessorising with a host of gold jewellery. She wore her blonde hair tied back into a low ponytail and opted for a natural beauty blend.

Fans adored Sophie's latest look and rushed to social media to share their uplifting comments about the royal's failsafe wardrobe. "Fabulous dress for Sophie, it’s very flattering and love the festive colour," one wrote, while another added: "Nice dress for Sophie, she suits the style, and the pattern is flattering for her figure." A third commented: "Oh I would love to have this coat and dress."

A fourth knowledgeably penned: "I always love to see The Countess wearing this red Alaia dress… (I remember she wore it on Christmas Day church service at Sandringham in 2016, where she accompanied the late Duke of Edinburgh. She also wore a lovely black fascinator)."

The Countess of Wessex jet-setted across the globe to attend the 2022 Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards in Washington, D.C. on Monday, where she was honoured as an "extraordinary woman trailblazer".
