Kate Middleton’s Reiss Shola dress look-alike

The original Reiss Shola dress, temporarily sold out

By now you will have seen the photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing the Reiss Shola dress, which is sold out for now but, will be re-stocked according to The Mirror. Here’s a similar dress from Reiss which I think will look equally stunning. And it’s still available as of this writing from www.reissonline.com for £159.

What I like about the Shola dress is that it is simple and elegant, and it looks good on her. In addition, Middleton avoids wearing jewelry and loud accessories that would detract from the sophisticated cut and style of the dress. Many celebrities wear way too much jewelry, makeup, and accessories, or they dress in outfits with lots of unnecessary and distracting details. Fashion magazines love to feature women who dress in an over the top, vulgar way. I hope that Middleton’s simple, elegant style of dressing catches on.
