Lady Kitty Spencer Channels Her Aunt Princess Diana With 2 Gorgeous Dresses in Florence

It seems a good fashion sense really does run in the Spencer family.

The late Princess Diana was always known for her extremely unique style, which featured puffy sleeves, statement belts and grandpa sweaters. And these staples are still affecting trends to this day.

Take her niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, who is keeping the family's stylish legacy going. As a high-profile model and a brand spokesmodel for Dolce & Gabbana, it makes sense that the aristocrat is always dressed to the nines. But in her latest Instagram post, Spencer caught our attention with two gorgeous dresses she modeled down the streets of Italy, not only because they were stunning, but because they also seemed to channel her late aunt.

“Fun in Florence with @luciodirosa & @dolcegabbana,” Spencer wrote in her caption.

Both of her dresses were designed by Dolce & Gabbana, and Spencer paired the first with silver heels, while the second was styled with brown heels and a beige handbag.

As admirers of Princess Diana's fashion, we couldn't help but notice that these looks reminded us of 'fits we'd seen before. The first dress is eerily similar to the pattern on a gown that Lady Di wore in 1991 while visiting the Middlesex Hospital in London with Barbara Bush. Of course, Spencer's D&G dress got a few small upgrades, including a square cut neckline and a more form-fitting shape.

Meanwhile, Spencer's second gown recalls a blue-and-white striped ensemble that was worn by the Princess of Wales in 1988 during a trip to the Music College of the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia. While Princess Diana's dress featured a bit of a darker blue and she accessorized with a large sun hat, the pattern similarities are hard to ignore.
