Famous Pippa Middleton dress knocked off for $277



Remember this dress?


Not the one on the left, silly. The one on the right. That's Pippa Middleton, sister to Kate "Duchess Catherine" Middleton at the royal wedding. You might recall she did an expert job wrangling veils and trains and adorable British children in a tush-skimming Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown with buttons all down the back.

Our friend The Juice informs us demand has been so high, British department store Debenhams has made a knock-off to sell this year for $277. Steep, yeah, but not when you consider the original may have cost more than $32,000.

I liked Pippa's dress (and I also find her name completely jolly, like a woodland nymph or a Keebler elf). The gown looked amazing on her. But let's be honest, folks. Should we all be wearing it to, like, our nephew's baptism at St. Agnes, or our cousin Maggie's wedding in North Carolina? I mean, feel free to try, but I have a sneaking suspicion the success lies more in the subject and less in the fabric. Let's give credit where it's due:

Pippa's middle.
