The Duchess of Cambridge rocked the Prince’s Trust concert last night and again she chose a High Street fave for her dress. She wore a black and white lace mini dress from Spanish giant Zara, and teamed it with a thick black belt and a Ralph Lauren Jacket, which I believe she wore with another Zara dress as part of her going away outfit after the Royal Wedding. This dress has raised a few eyebrows, as it was far shorter than any outfit she has worn since her wedding, but this was a concert, and so teamed with black tights, this was as close to doing ‘Rock chick’ as Kate is ever going to get!
Of course, Kate’s dress, called the’ lace tulip’, has already completely sold out, as the Kate Effect kicks in again. You can now get the dress on Ebay for a buy it now price of £139.99. (Click here to check out all Lace Tulip dress listings).
The lace tulip dress may be a sellout, but I have found an amazingly similar dress from Oasis at John Lewis, which will give you the Kate look. This dress retails at £65 and has the same lace pattern as the Zara dress.
We know that Kate has a thing for lace dresses. She wore a beautiful navy blue Erdem dress during her tour of Canada, and then made red lace dresses a trend when she wore a beautiful raspberry lace Collete Dinnigen dress for a friend’s wedding.
The High street has been teeming with lace dresses for the party season, and there have been many versions based on Kate’s dresses. Here are a couple at bargain prices.
