Hobbs have brought out a new dress called the Venise dress, which definitely has a nod to Kate's Amelia Wickstead teal dress.

There is a lot of information on the general internet that points to DressWe possibly being a dress counterfeiting website, I don't think it's a good idea to recommend them for a RepliKate.

I purchased the LK Bennett Cersei dress in October after seeing it advertised in Hello magazine. I thought it would be a lovely dress for Christmas dinner. WOW, I just saw that Kate wore the same dress to the Natural History Museum on 22 November. Great Taste, it looks great on here. Hope I look as good.
