Bad Judgement Du Jour. Selling Knockoff Celebrity Fashion at Grocery Stores

November 23, 2010 • Fashion

Kate Middleton, her ring, and her dress. Alright already.

Ok so when is this Middleton madness going to be enough? After QVC announced last week that it’s selling a replica of Kate Middleton’s sapphire engagement ring (formerly owned by Princess Diana), now British supermarket chain Tesco is getting in on the ridiculous replica act. Starting yesterday, Tesco has started to carry a short-sleeved version of the navy Issa dress Middleton wore when her engagement to Prince William was announced last week.

Jan Marchant, buying director at Tesco Clothing, said on the retailer’s blog: “Kate Middleton looked extremely elegant in her choice of outfit and many women will want to find a high-street replica of this now iconic dress. It’s very versatile — a classic design and perfect for many special occasions. We expect it to sell out fast,” she said. And for a whopping 16 pounds, or $26, we bet it will too. But as for any  actual style quotient, well, it seems you get what you pay for. Let's hope the end of the Middleton mania is not too far off……but we're guessing the worst is yet to come.
