- Designer Zac Posen revealed a look at the back of Princess Eugenie’s reception dress on Instagram.
- The silk blush dress features an open-back design that is similar to her wedding dress.
- Eugenie previously revealed that she wanted her wedding gown to showcase her scar from the scoliosis correctional surgery she received as a child.
For the reception, Eugenie changed out of her Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos-designed wedding gown and into a silk blush Zac Posen gown with long sleeves and a full pleated skirt. The royal family shared a look at the dress on Instagram with a photo taken by Alex Bramall.
Thanks to a recent Instagram post by Posen, we now have a full view of the back of Eugenie’s reception dress.
The back of the dress features an open V-shaped design, which means it showed Eugenie’s scar from her childhood scoliosis correctional surgery.
It’s a similar look to the back of her wedding gown, which also showcased her scar with an open-back design.
During an interview with ITV’s “This Morning” before her big day, Eugenie said that she wanted her wedding dress to feature a special nod to the people who helped her during the surgery.
“I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you’ll see on Friday, but it’s a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this,” Eugenie told ITV’s morning show host Eamonn Holmes.
She also wanted the dress to challenge conventional beauty standards.
“I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that,” she said.
