Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress can be yours

Want to own Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress? A version by Sarah Burton, not one of the numerous copies sold on home shopping networks alongside replicas of Duchess Catherine’s long-sleeved wedding gown? Well, the time has finally come.

The Alexander McQueen cowl-neck silk-crepe gown is available on Net-a-Porter’s British Web site for a hefty 1,995 British pounds (or $3,119.58). However for those super fans willing to get plastic surgery to recreate the royal sister-in-law’s infamous behind, the price may not seem so bad.

The gown features the elegant cowl-neck detail and accentuated shoulders seen on Pippa’s version, but lacks the button closures down the back. Instead, a concealed zip fastening runs along the back.

Future brides, debutantes or any other interested buyers from outside Britain can also purchase the gown, by calling the store. However according to the Web site, the smallest size available, a 36, is already sold out.

The release came only a day after replicas of another highly sought after dress went on sale. Alfred Angelo began selling sanctioned copies of the dress worn by Kristen Stewart’s character, Bella Swan, in the latest installment of the “Twilight” series. (Read more in Celebritology).
