For a Thursday night London screening of Barbie, Lady Amelia Windsor subverted royal expectations and wore a pair of running shoes on the red carpet. The 27-year-old model—and granddaughter of the Duke of Kent—paired the shoes with a thematically appropriate hot pink dress, and a few casual necklaces.
Amelia also wore sneakers on Wednesday night, when she attended the launch party for The List, a new novel by Yome Adegoki, at the London bar The Library. She paired a more casual green and white dress with a pair of Nikes and posed with the author and a group of other partygoers. Afterward she praised the book as “brilliant” on her Instagram story, adding “I couldn’t put it down, and you won’t be able to either.”
Thursday was not the first time Amelia has channeled the Barbiecore trend in recent months. On July 11, she wore a pink and orange dress by Kitty Joseph and pink espadrille slides to a London screening of Special Ops: Lioness. In June, she attended the annual V&A summer party wearing a diaphanous pink gown by the New York brand Hellessy, which she paired with paisley pumps from Michael Kors.
Amelia, who was dubbed “the most beautiful member of the royal family” by Tatler in 2016, has become an increasingly visible part of the royal social scene. At Wimbledon, she spent a day in the royal box alongside her father, George Windsor, Earl of St. Andrews, and retired tennis star Martina Navratilova, wearing a chic pair of sunglasses, a white dress with butterflies, and her trusty set of necklaces.
