The royal wedding is soon approaching, and one of biggest aspects of it is definitely the dress that Miss Middleton will choose to wear down the aisle. However, this will not be the first time a dress will be such a big deal in her life. Because back in 2002, the future princess worked the runway for a charity fashion show at St. Andrew’s University in a sexy see through number that caught the eye of none other than Prince William, and started Kate’s life down the princess path.
That same dress was put up for auction on Thursday in London. The see-through mesh slip sold for an incredible $125,871. It was reported that the anonymous buyer was a British male, whose rep said that “he thinks it’s an iconic piece.” Iconic it can definitely be considered, that dress bringing together Prince William and his future bride, who started dating soon after the fashion show. The dress was originally intended to be worn as a skirt, but Kate switched things up and rocked it as a dress. It was only expected to sell for around $11,000 to $14,000, seeing as how it cost less than $50 to make. But royalty makes everything more glamorous, including that now-infamous mesh dress!Tags: auction, dress, Kate Middleton
