Buy Pippa Middleton's Bridesmaid Dress for $277
Pippa Fans Rejoice - Get Her Look for a Whole Lot Less
She's gotten so famous since the April wedding of her big sister Catherine to Prince William that it's hard to believe that we used to not have any idea who she was. But, that $32,000 Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen bridemaid gown she wore on that fateful spring day had a hand in changing that. And, now, the dress (or a reasonable facsimile of it) can be yours for a song.
Much in the way that Allen Schwartz's ABS label knocks off Oscars and Emmy dresses for the masses to wear to, say, prom, British department store, Debenhams, has made a $277 version of the cowl-neck designer gown that reportedly cost $32,000. (Not sure whether or not Pippa actually had to pay that amount. Clearly, the publicity she generated for the house was priceless.)
"Both men and women everywhere were instantly talking about Pippa, so naturally brides-to-be will want to emulate her classic look -- both for themselves or their bridesmaids," said the chief personal shopper of one of the Debenhams branches.
Would you wear a replica of the gown? Or, is that cheesy?
