It seems like forever ago now, but that up there is the Issa dress that cemented Kate Middleton as a fashion tastemaker. She’d always been quite stylish, but when Middleton wore the blue kimono-style frock to announce her engagement to Prince William it sold out almost immediately. Even with a pricetag north of $600.
Now–since the press (and us bloggers too) eat up the whole Middleton Sister rivalry narrative–we must bring you word that Pippa Middleton wore the same dress. In red. Mountains crumble:
Pippa was attending a friend’s wedding. She topped off the look with a matching fascinator.
Although we’re possibly looking at different materials, the Daily Mail reports they are indeed both Issa ‘Forever’ dresses. We prefer the color and sheen of Kate’s. Thoughts?
