Calling all Copy-Kates! You can now get married in a dress that is almost an exact replica of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, courtesy of H&M’s £150 version.
One of the most eagerly anticipated dresses in history, the world’s fashion pundits watched eagle-eyed to discover who had designed the Duchess of Cambridge’s bridal gown, after it was kept top secret until the big day in April 2011.
It was revealed to be by none other than Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, with the elegant ivory gown featuring long lace sleeves and a lace panel over the bodice, with a sweet-heart neckline and traditional 1950s-esque A-line silhouette. Intricate details – such as the symbols of each country in the UK – were incorporated, while local artisans were used.
Now, H&M is selling a similar long, white dress, with lace sleeves, A-line skirt and sweetheart neckline. Compared to Kate Middleton’s £150,000 version though, this one will only set you back a small fraction of the price at £150. The high-street version does vary slightly though, with a very un-royal keyhole cut-out at the back, and an additional bow belt, plus no flowing train.
Seven years on from that royal wedding, history is repeating itself, with the world eagerly awaiting Prince Harry’s upcoming May 19th nuptials to Meghan Markle. Speculation over who has designed the former Suits’ star’s dress is rife, with many looking to Erdem as the most likely man for the job.
