Since the Royal wedding back in April 2011, the Middletons have been a regular name in the fashion papers especially the perfect derrière of Pippa Middleton.
Other than the lady-in-waiting’s figure, her simple and elegant bridesmaids dress trended on Twitter throughout the entire Royal wedding weekend as it was the perfect mix of understated beauty with outstanding presence, the dress was a one of a kind by the fashion house Alexander McQueen designed by Sarah Burton.
The dress retailed at $39,000, but we are pleased to announce that it not only limited to those that want to spend the same amount as a car on a dress- with the assistance of high street retail department store Debenhams.
The Debenhams designers have put together the Pippa Bridesmaids dress for a superb and reasonable £200/ $250 which is out for release on the October 17th 2011- in great time for those getting married in 2012.
Alain Mehada, the Debenhams chief personal shopper at the flagship Oxford Street Store commented on the latest range “We’ve been inundated by customers asking if we have anything similar to dresses worn by Kate, Pippa and the flower girls, but the ivory dress worn by Pippa is the most request by far,” whilst Russell Fish, the head of the occasional wear at Debenhams said “We have taken the best of the dresses and added our designer twist, Now everyone can get the Middletons’ look at high street prices”
The question that really came into mind when I heard the news of these dresses is that- would you want to copy such a world known, renowned and recognisable dress? Would your guests and family at the wedding appreciate you for purchasing the copy? Why would you want to copy the dress that headlined twitter? Hmm.. Questions..Yes it was a lovely dress on Pippa but it really is some heavy shoes to fill- Well, I will have to keep an eye on the wedding blogs to see if there is a general conformity to such a dress. To be continued next year!!
