Kate Middleton’s Name Literally Pays Off
According to msnbc.com, this “barely there” frock sold for a whopping 78,000 Gbp ($125,871) at auction! Why would this extreme ensemble lure in so much loot? Well, my fierce fashion followers, that is because it briefly graced the body of the already iconic, soon to be Princess! Once upon a time, way before a royal engagement, let alone DATE, Kate sported this over black underwear for a charity runway show. Not long after, her and Wills started dating. It is speculated that the sight of Kate in this dress enamored our charming Prince so much, that he had to get a date and alas, was the start of a new dynasty. Whether this tale has any merit, we’ll never know, but it does add personality to the racy dress.
The bidder is said to have been very pleased with his purchase, as he considers it a piece of history. The designer, Charlotte Todd (who is no longer a designer), expressed utter shock. She never dreamed it would have sold for such an amount. Goes to show you much fame is worth!
A hopeful bidder expressed her desire for the dress because Kate “was the quintessential good girl who used bad girl secrets to catch her prince.” Personally, I think it was a matter of being in the RIGHT DRESS at the RIGHT TIME.
Stay Fashionably Fabulous!
