ABS by Allen Schwartz, the retailer famous for turning around Oscar dresses overnight, has produced three dresses from the April 29 event: both of Kate’s wedding gowns, as well as Pippa’s maid of honor ensemble, which were designed by Sarah Burton for the house of Alexander McQueen.
The dresses will be available mid-July at some Lord & Taylor stores, as well as online at LordandTaylor.com. The “Kate Bridal” dress, which is the long-sleeved gown the Duchess wore to walk down the aisle at Westminster Abbey, retails for $1,125, while the strapless number she wore to the evening reception, called the “Catherine,” will sell for $475. Meanwhile, a version of Pippa’s cowl-neck maid of honor dress, will be available for $425.
