Inspired by the Duchess: Tadashi Shoji Lace Sweetheart Neckline Gown

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a teal lace dress by Jenny Packham at the Olympics Gala concert in 2012.

That gown made headlines because firstly she had her hair in an updo! Secondly it was much more sexy than what she had worn before. Click here to view more on her fashion style in 2012.

Todashi Shoji has a similar gown called Crinkle Chiffon and Lace Gown with Jeweled Belt in Blue Stone. The gown is described by Todashi:“Exquisite draping on our chiffon and lace gown beautifully accentuates your figure. A hand-beaded inset on the attached belt sparkles at your waist. Lace inserts on the sweetheart neckline, bodice side and cap sleeves add a feminine touch.”

This gown is also available at Neiman Marcus and called the Lace Sweetheart Neckline Gown. The Gown is described as:” Lace and pleating take center stage on this Tadashi Shoji gown. The elegant lace neckline frames face and shows off your decolletage. Add a silver bracelet and metallic sandals to complete the look. Crepe de chine and lace. Lace sweetheart neckline. Cap sleeves and yoke add shrug-like effect. Bodice of pintucked bands and lace is fitted to waist. Waist defined with beaded band. Knife-pleated, A-line skirt; back zip. Silk with polyester lace and lining.”

Thoughts: I think this dress is fairly similar to the Jenny Packham one except for the band at the back of the dress and the lack of buttons. What do you guys thing?
