The Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress that Kate Middleton wore at her royal wedding to Prince Williams has been copied numerous times since the April wedding. And now fans of the gown Pippa Middleton wore as she stepped into the spotlight as chief bridesmaid at the royal shindig seven months ago.
The beautifully cut, elegant and timeless Alexander McQueen silk-crepe gown is an almost identical copy of Pippa’s dress and is now being sold on net-a-porter.com for £1,995.
Despite being designed as a bridesmaid gown, I’m sure many British brides will be rushing to secure this particular gown as it offers a simple silhouette compared to more elaborate designs. And at just shy of £2k it is comes at a fraction of the price! Pippa’s gown is said to have cost around £20,000, but did include bespoke lace panels around the sleeves and neck as well as silk button detailing on the back. Hey, it was a royal wedding after all!
Can’t promise you’ll get a derrière like Pippa by wearing the Sarah Burton design, but it sure is a pretty choice for your wedding day.
