Alexander McQueen’s replicas of Pippa Middleton’s famous bridesmaid dress has sold out within hours of going on sale. And while the price tag of £1,195 might seem high, that’s a snip compared to the £20,000 estimated cost of the original.
The dress was designed by the fashion house’s creative director Sarah Burton, who was also responsible for Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. But while the wedding dress certainly drew praise, Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress turned her into an overnight global superstar.
Pippa Middleon was arguably the star of the royal wedding, especially as admirers noted the effect that the dress had on her derriere. A Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society page on Facebook, for example, already has a quarter of a million followers.
