The dress worn by Kate Middleton at a university fashion show, which is said to have sparked her romance with Prince William, could be worth £100,000 ($157,911). That ought to pay for the drinks at the wedding.
According to the London Evening Standard, when Kate took to the catwalk at a charity fashion show held at St. Andrews University in 2002 in this revealing little number, Britain’s future King turned to a friend and whispered, “Wow… Kate’s hot!” It was later that night that Prince William allegedly made his move on Kate (which NewsFeed would like to point out was honorable and befitting of a dashing prince). But the question remains: where is the dress now?
The dress was the creation of fashion design student, Charlotte Todd, who has since kept the dress in her mother’s wardrobe. Ms. Todd, who now works at an aquarium, has vowed not to sell the dress because she says it is, “a part of fashion history.” However, due to it’s historical credentials, Christine Satchett, from London based auctioneer’s Greasbys thinks that it could soon be worth up to £100,000, especially after the royal wedding.
With this in mind, we here at NewsFeed will be wearing something similar tonight, in case we bump into Prince Harry (or indeed, any available Prince) because, unlike Ms. Todd, we’re totally open to offers.
