Bridesmaids’ dresses always get a bum rap. All except for the Alexander McQueen gown Pippa Middleton wore the day her big sis, Kate, married Britain's Prince William. The "bum" rap on THAT dress was for a different reason all together. But still, any dress that can upstage a princess bride has to be pretty spectacular.
And now, you too can look like royalty for a cool $3,100. Go ahead and get your credit card out of the freezer (hey, looking royal doesn’t come cheap), because the world's most coveted bridesmaid dress is for sale on Net-a-Porter.com's UK site today, according to People Magazine.
You’re probably thinking -- this dress has been knocked off several times over already Why is this one any different? Because it’s the only version by the actual designer.
The stunning Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen silk-crepe design is sized in British terms, but shoppers around the world need not fret -- you can call the site's style advisers to get help or even reserve your own. But you may want to hurry because the site is already out of at least one size.

This particular version of the gown is almost identical to Pippa’s, with one minor difference: it features a covered zipper in the back instead of the fabric buttons. You can also snag the dress in a black knee-length version if you're in a more cocktail party than wedding mood.
Would you pay $3K+ for the bum-enhancing dress? Only after lots of Pilates first? And if so, would you wear it as a bridesmaid, or as a bride?
