Kate Middleton’s £46 Family Portrait Dress Sells Out: See the Copycats!

Submitted by on Thursday, 29 August 2013 | No Comment

The dark fuchsia dress that Duchess of Cambridge and new mother Kate Middleton wore on her first official family portrait has promptly sold out.

The £46 dress is from maternity label Seraphine, who specialise in flattering clothing for pregnancy and post-pregnancy figures. Their dresses are proving a particularly popular design, as chosen by the Duchess of Cambridge herself, as the knotted waist and empire line style flatters the figure as well as making breastfeeding easier. The perfect dress for the stylish but practical new mother.


Kate looked radiant in the family portrait, the bright fuchsia of the dress standing out, looking pretty and summery, comfortable as well as smart. The pink also looked lovely with her glossy chestnut tresses, which were gently teased into long waves.

Seraphine’s founder Cecile Reinaud called Kate’s wearing of the design “an immense honour”, adding: “The response has been phenomenal.”


All colours of the dress have now sold out and none in Kate’s shade of fuchsia will be sent out until the sixteenth of September. Seraphine must be one happy company right now, as it stands to prove the ‘Kate effect’ is still strong, now a blossoming style icon for post-maternity dressing.

This effect was seen on her Issa engagement dress in that beautiful shade of cobalt blue. Also, her cornflower blue, polka dot dress which she wore to leave the hospital and present Prince George to the world’s media was an instant sell out hit. It appears Kate can still do no wrong!

Although the Seraphine dress may be out of reach for now, Asos have a great maternity range which features similar style dresses.

This coral dress is a lovely summery colour and features the same knotted waist and empire line style, but in a slightly more floaty fabric.

This fuchsia tulip dress is almost exactly the same shade of pink as Kate’s dress and can be easily dressed up or down. Although it’s a slightly different style, it still pulls you in at the waist and skims over your bump. It can also be adjusted as your shape changes throughout and after pregnancy.
