Does anyone need a replica of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress this quick?

The Royal Wedding hasn’t even been over for 24 hours and you can already get a knockoff  Alexander McQueen wedding dress on eBay that supposedly looks like the one the new Duchess of Cambridge wore just this morning.

As of 11:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (same as New York), it has one bid for US$300 with money going to a botanical garden in Pittsburgh.

How much would you pay for a knockoff royal wedding dress? This one was copied and produced in just hours by that city’s ballet’s costume designer. That’s super fast considering my wedding gown is taking six months to arrive!

The Pittsburgh ballet beat this guy and well-known designer Jim Hjelm who said they’d have the dress copied in days.

It was only a matter of *short* time. Kate’s engagement dress or Princess Diana/Duchess Catherine’s engagement ring are all readily available in replica form.

Here’s a side view of the Pittsburgh dress.


Here’s a screenshot of the eBay sale page so you can still see it when the auction ends.
