Splurge Vs. Save: The Pippa Middleton Dress

Pippa Middleton Replica Wedding Dresses

I know, I know - the Royal Wedding was like a thousand years ago. Yet here we are, still talking about a certain infamous bridesmaid who enchanted an entire nation, just by showing us her backside...oye vey. Anyhoo, were you aware you can own Pippa's exact dress? Everyone's favorite slinky, cowl-neck gown is for sale on Net-A-Porter. for only $3475. Not an unheard of sum to pony up for a wedding gown (and because it is THE Pippa dress, I wouldn't bet on it going on clearance anytime in the next 2 years).

HOWEVER, replicas of this dress are PLENTIFUL. You'll see 3 of our faves above. That's the real McQueen on the far left, and then, L-R, we have the $199 David's Bridal chiffon remix, and then the A.B.S. by Allen Schwartz Pippa Dress, available at Lord & Taylor, and currently on sale for $234, down from $390. Lastly we have the JS Collections version, which is only $132 at Dillard's. Now of course, replica gowns do cut corners. The original gown was made of a luscious silk-crepe, which probably accounts for the immaculate way it hung off of Miss Middleton's derriere. The replica dresses are chiffon, polyester, and polyester, respectively. 

But we'll take a royal poll - is it worth the extra $3200 to get the real deal? You should probably note -  this dress isn't MAGIC. It won't give you instant "Pippa bum".

Still worth the quadruple digit price tag, or no?
