Back when she was a student at St Andrews University, Kate Middleton hit the catwalk for a charity fashion show sporting a racy sheer bandeau dress. Royal legend now has it that it was seeing her in that creation that led Prince William to ask the now future Princess out, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Yesterday the dress in question, designed by Charlotte Todd, went under the hammer. And it sold for an incredible £78,000. That's pretty impressive, especially when you consider that far from being a big name designer, Todd was a fashion student when she whipped up the dress and now apparently works in an aquarium.
The new owner of the dress is under wraps but according to AP it wa bought by a British man who '...thinks it's an iconic piece. He's very happy.'More
