KM dressFor sale: one second hand dress that seduced Prince Charming. Price tag: £78,000.

Yup, that’s the whopping amount one collector paid for a sheer frock Kate Middleton wore during a 2002 charity fashion show at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland. In the audience was her soon-to-be boyfriend and future fiancé, Prince William. The dress, which was actually designed as a skirt by a fellow student, went up for auction in London and had at least four bidders.

“He thinks it’s an iconic piece,” a representative for the buyer was quoted saying. “He’s very happy.”

So, we assume, is the person pocketing the money from the sale.
