I think the first gown was worn in Denmark and a photo was taken with Alix on the steps of the Fredensborg Slott. The stripled dress was worn in a photo session in Denmark with Queen Louise (her mother).

O only found that Worth designed it, but no more info, when I saw it I thought that was a mourning one
Yes, definitively not a mourning dress.
The caption:
Empress Maria Fyodorovna's gown of satin tulle, lace, chiffon, and beads. 1880's
