But now, the beautiful dress has been seen like never before after its talented designer Zac shared a tribute to Eugenie for her 29th birthday.
In the breathtaking picture, Eugenie is seen wearing the design while Zac kneels behind her holding its sheer train.
Zac also penned a sweet message to the red-headed royal, writing: "Every now and then you meet somebody who just knocks your socks off. This last year I got to know a young lady who possessed natural elegance, a heart of gold and sophisticated humor."
He continued: "My studio and I had the honor (and the best time) collaborating with her on her special gown. Best of all she is dedicated to using her privilege to help our world and its people with her project @the_anti_slavery_collective. Happy Birthday! @princesseugenie."

The revered reception gown is currently on display alongside Eugenie's stunning off-shoulder Peter Piloto wedding dress at an exhibition at Windsor Castle.
For the exhibition, Eugenie recorded an audio guide where she revealed some extra details about the now-iconic dresses.
Much to fans delight, she said the Zac Posen frock was actually inspired by Grace Kelly's 1955 movie, To Catch a Thief.
Town and Country shared some of the Princess' anecdotes: "I wanted something reminiscent of Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief so I showed that for reference and Zac came up with this silk that he'd found from Manchester," she explained.
"Every single draping effect, every single detail, every button, it's all painstakingly done by him and his team."
