The Kate Middleton Dress People Are Going Crazy For

It's the dress the broke the internet.

Okay, not quite, but it did crash a fashion designer's website after Kate Middleton was spotted in it.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known to cause a stir with her fashion choices and that's exactly what happened when she was spotted wearing a printed tunic in India over the weekend.


The bohemian dress by Anita Dongre was quickly picked up by fans of the Duchess' classic style who flooded the Indian Designer's website.

Just hours after being snapped playing cricket in the dress, Dongre's website crashed as people rushed to purchase their own.

It came as such a shock the designer's IT staff called her in a panic.

Talking to The Wall Street Journal, Dongre said she wasn't sure when or if the Duchess would wear the design and that her label was just "a small brand in India".

Orders for the breezy design have since poured in from across the world, with the designer boosting production of the dress to 1,000 pieces - five times what she would normally make.
