Kate Middleton and Drew Barrymore Wore the Same Dress, and Somehow It's Still Available

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Fashion is becoming more and more of a rule-free space (tracksuits and Von Dutch hats are back, what?!), but there remains one: When Kate Middleton wears a dress, a pair of boots, or anything, really, it sells out. For whatever reason, however, a dress that not only Kate Middleton wore, but that Drew Barrymore also wore is still available.

Here's Drew Barrymore at last night's ASPCA gala in her honor wearing an embroidered tulle Tory Burch dress:

And here's Kate Middleton wearing that very same gown on the same day, April 14th. (If we're getting technical, though, Kate wore it first, considering that she's in India and is many hours ahead.)

Here's that dress again, this time at Net-a-Porter and available for $1,495.

Why is this dress still available? What kind of dark spell had to be cast? Either way, it could be yours — for now, anyway.
