Last night, William and Kate attended the Royal Variety Performance at London’s Palladium theatre. Kate looked stunning in a black lace dress by Diane Von Furstenberg. The dress, which retailed for $900, was highly popular and quickly sold out at Net-A-Porter.com and Farfetch.com.
Today, a reader from Switzerland (who wishes to remain anonymous) emailed me with a fantastic “RepliKate.” The dress is a long sleeve black lace gown by Adrianna Papell at 6pm.com. The dress also has over 50% off it’s original retail price, and is now only $99.99 – perfect if the DVF’s $900 price tag is not for you.
The Adrianna Papell dress has many similar features to the DVF dress. Both maxi dresses feature long sheer lace sleeves, a scalloped boat neckline and scalloped V-shaped back. The only difference is the Papell dress has a zip closure and slit at the back. Here’s the DVF dress for comparison’s sake:
At only $99 including shipping, the Adrianna Papell dress is very affordable – perfect for those upcoming Christmas and New Year events.
