Princess Beatrice made a case for metallic partywear and she joined her mother Sarah Ferguson at a glitzy event in New York rocking a striking navy gown this weekend.

The royal, 34, sent royal fans into a frenzy after her MUA Clarissa Luna shared a set of glamorous photographs of her jaw-dropping transformation. Beatrice was wearing a £2,500 navy dress by royally-loved brand, The Vampire's Wife.

Princess Beatrice donned the label's 'The Sky Rocket' dress. Nocturnal and jewel-like in metallic spun navy silk-lamé, the puff-sleeved shoulders and romantic ruffled skirt evoked pure old Hollywood glamour - and the royal wore it with confidence.

The mother-of-one's glossy auburn hair was teased into a half-up, half-down look with tumbling curls falling to her shoulders. "She looks stunning!! Absolutely the best look I’ve ever seen on her!" wrote a fan on social media.

MORE ROYAL STYLE

"Bea looks amazing! I’m always a fan of The Vampire’s Wife, which she wears beautifully, and this entire look is off the charts in every way!"

Beatrice's transformative shift in style can no doubt be linked to her marriage with property developer Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Since tying the knot in 2020, Beatrice appears to have found her joie de vivre in dressing - and royal fans seem to agree.

Princess Beatrice's penchant for British fashion label The Vampire's Wife is shared by the Princess of Wales, who has several of Susie Cave's luxuriously crafted, elegant and feminine designs in her wardrobe.

Over her ritzy weekend in New York, the royal appeared to have an accidental faux pas with another royal, stepping out in a strikingly similar dress by the same brand.
