8 Best regal look: Ghislaine Mutombo

The ultimate look fit for royality! Ghislaine wore a two-tone number that looks like a dress but is actually a top and wide-leg trousers when studied closely. She accessorised with a dramatic Crystal Birch hat and embellished her hair with flower pins that she made herself. Goals.
