Known for her fresh and youthful eye for fashion, women around the world are copying Kate’s style, and this dress is no exception.
“The dress is flying off the shelves in stores in both the UK and the US,” a spokesperson for Reiss told RadarOnline.com about the “Shola” dress that sells for $340.

“We’re sold out of the dress,” Anthony Conley, a sales associate at the Reiss store in Beverly Hills, tells RadarOnline.com. “It was popular before but now it’s exploded.”
“I came into the store this morning and they all sold out. It was the same when she wore the white dress for the engagement. Definitely a lot of people want to see what she wears and dress like Kate.”
