Ladies (And Some Of Y’all “Men”…) Would You Pay $14,000 For This Dress???

Fo’teen stacks?!?! Fa’ dat?!?! Sheeeeeeeeeit, hell naw shawty.

It is the wisp of a dress that in 2002 gave the fairy-tale romance between a British commoner and a blond-haired young prince a racy—and wholly modern—kick start.
On March 17, the leave-nothing-to-the-imagination covering that Kate Middleton wore during a charity fashion show while a student at the University of St. Andrews—and that transformed Prince William’s interest in his classmate from platonic to romantic—will be sold to the highest bidder by Kerry Taylor Auctions in London.

The hey-baby dress, by former student Charlotte Todd, will be sold alongside hundreds of far grander garments, many of which tell the history of Western design. For example, a 1920s beaded evening cape by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was once owned by the eccentric Italian fashion editor Anna Piaggi, and a rare silk Mondrian dress by Yves Saint Laurent comes from the collection of American collector Sandy Schreier

…Taylor expects the dress to sell for anywhere from £8,000 to £10,000—or about $11,000 to $14,000. Proving that in this case, provenance—and prescience—can be quite lucrative.

Guess there is something to be said for fashion statements. But then again there’s also something said about foolish ones. Whatever, if you like it we love it. Play on playas…
