The Kate Effect is in full swing!
Kate Middleton‘s Diane von Furstenberg dress she wore for her April 17 appearance in Winmalee, New South Wales, sold out within minutes on DVF.com. The Duchess of Cambridge paired the fit-and-flare dress with her trusty Stuart Weitzman platform wedges, which have been flying off virtual shelves since she first wore them during the tour on April 11 and again on April 13.
The “Patrice” wrap dress features a blue ikat batik print and a slightly flared skirt. While the $325 frock will be restocked this week, according to the site, a blouse and skirt are still available (for now) in the print online.
