This “wear is it now?” (my little joke) story from ONTD: “It cost a mere £30 ($50) to cobble together.But the see-through black slip credited with helping Kate Middleton catch the eye of a prince could one day be worth £100 000.
William was mesmerised by his fellow student as she sashayed down the catwalk in the outfit at a university fashion show eight years ago.
Designer Charlotte Todd, who admitted the dress has been languishing at the back of her wardrobe ever since, has been told its value has rocketed to £10,000 since the couple announced their engagement.
And according to one auction house, that could increase ten-fold when Kate becomes Queen.
Yesterday Miss Todd, 31, said there was little chance of her parting with it:” The dress is part of fashion history – the moment William fcould have first fallen in love with Kate and that makes me really proud,” she said.
If it hadn’t been see-through William may not have noticed her.”
Talk about winning the lottery.
