Pippa Middleton’s Bridesmaid Dress Goes on Sale

This could be the one instance where the old adage, “always a bridesmaid,” can make you feel like royality.

Pippa Middleton’s bridesmaid dress, which she wore when she was Duchess Catherine’s maid of honor in the royal wedding of the century, is now available for purchase by the commonwoman on the British version of the website, Net-a-Porter.com, according to TIME.

Originally a silk-crepe ivory gown designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, Pippa’s bridesmaid-inspired dress will be sold for the bargain price of $1,680, a steal compared to what the original was expected to fetch — somewhere between $20,000 and $31,000.

Currently the dress appears to only be available in red. Aside from the color, the overall shape of the dress is the same, but cut to knee-length and a zipper up the back instead of a series of buttons.

“The signature accentuated shoulders and draped neckline are effortlessly flattering – style a clean silhouette with swept-back hair and drop earrings for radiant, understated appeal,” the luxury designer website reads.
 
Those living outside of the U.K. can call to order, but good luck getting your hands on one. Despite the cost, the dress has already sold out.
