From Primark to Topshop, the Brits love their knockoffs. So it’s no surprise Tesco, one of the nation’s biggest discount stores, decided to replicate the pretty-but-let’s-face-it-boring Issa dress Kate Middleton wore to announce her engagement to Prince William. It retails for about $25
The problem with the “Kate” dress, as Tesco has apty named it? Well, it’s not really a replica. In fact, we’d never think of it as a copy if Tesco wasn’t touting it as one.
Unsurprisingly, there’s another, better copy out there. It’s called the Pepita dress, and it’s on sale for €99, or about $155, which isn’t much cheaper than the original.
We don’t really understand why anyone would want this dress so badly anyways, but if you’re desperate, there’s a lovely Issa silver dress similar to Kate’s currently available on Matches.com.
