Of course, news of the fashion choice spread around the world, and the $340 dress instantly sold out on Reiss.com. In fact, the website was so overloaded that it crashed.
A Reiss spokesperson said that their website traffic spiked by more than 300% as a result of Kate wearing the Reiss “Shola” style.
It used to be that a mention by Oprah would bring servers crashing to their knees. Now that the Queen of daytime TV has moved on to bigger things, brands have a new Queen (to be) to stalk.
Kate wore the nude colored Shola bandage dress with black stilettos and black clutch. No hosiery. Sigh.
