South Africa’s soon-to-be princess’ ascent to royalty has seen a beautiful transformation of a down-to-earth athlete to the elegant, regal lady that graces newspapers and magazine covers all across the world this weekend.

When a new member takes her place in a royal family; designers the world over can only hope for the chance to adorn her in their creations. Spero Villioti Couture is privileged to be counted among the designers Monaco’s princess has chosen to line her cupboards with. In 2006 Charlene chose to attend the prestigious Monaco Red Cross Ball in Spero Villioti Couture attire. And this is not the only time the Johannesburg based couture designer has been her first choice. It seems only fitting though that the princess in waiting be dressed by our very own “king” of couture.
Here’s to wishing the royals of the Riviera a long, successful and joyous marriage. And to the wardrobe of a princess, that most of us covet owning, we hope to see more South African designs hanging alongside the international names.
