Fashion breakdown – Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau

We’ve asked some fashionistas for their professional opinions on Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau’s swearing-in outfit. From coat to shoes to hair to dress (by Montreal-born designer Erdem, a brand Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been known to favour) – what do you think?

The dress worn by Sophie retails for £1,765.00 at Selfridges (that’s just over $3,500 CDN).

Alison Hughes, co-owner of AMH Style, the popular Westboro consignment store:

“Love her tailored white coat! Her black and white colour block dress with jeweled neckline is sophisticated and elegant. She looks perfect for the occasion. No surprise, Justin is looking pretty dapper too!”

Erica Wark, stylist, Erica on Fashion:

“Sophie looked truly elegant in a Canadian-made cream wrap coat by Sentaler at the swearing-in ceremony. It was sophisticated while still looking chic and modern, offering the perfect mix for a first-lady; not to mention made the perfect backdrop for the poppy on her lapel.”

Sarah Casselman, the Senior Editor of Fashion News from our sister publication, FASHION Magazine:

“Wrap coat, classic pumps and loosely pinned back locks—Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau has gone from girl-next-door to girl-gone-glam thanks to her chic look. If she was inspired by Kate Middleton’s fresh-faced, approachable-yet-seriously sophisticated style then consider us lucky, Canada—it was a fashion win. A monochromatic look with a hint of sparkle (her dress was perfection from the embellishment to the hemline) is a great platform. Understated elegance makes a strong statement—especially in the spotlight.”
