Buy Kate Middleton's Exact Issa Engagement Dress!

While it sold out within hours in London, American women coveting the blue Issa dress Kate Middleton wore to announce her engagement are in luck: Starting immediately, reservations can be placed on the $535 long-sleeved silk-jersey dress on, with orders expected to be shipped in January. For those of you lucky enough to be in London, you can pop into Harvey Nichols, Matches or Fenwick on Bond Street (where it’s believed the princess-to-be picked up hers), but expect to be put on the wait list as this dress has gained superstar status, with high street copies selling out everywhere since that historic Nov. 16 announcement. And while that particular dress has caused a global sensation, designer Daniella Helayel refuses to comment on whether it’s hers or Kate’s favorite. “I don’t have a favorite,” Helayel tells PEOPLE exclusively from her Chelsea studio, where the phone has been ringing off the hook since that appearance. “I always admire the styles and colors Kate chooses to wear. She has great taste.” –Suzanne Zuckerman; reporting by Monique Jessen

Wow the media really going to try and shove this woman down people’s throat.

It’s gorgeous…if I had the money, I would be first in line!

Gorgeous dress!
Now I just need the figure to be able to wear it correctly :)

I actually love her shoes more. I’ve seen several pictures with her wearing them. They’re classic black, but perfect look to them.

Not particularly fond of the dress…too stuffy for me

Well you won’t have to fight me for that dress… looks like something a 60 year old woman would wear…. kate’s a beauty but the dress did nothing for her.

True Lena, the media won’t leave her alone and in turn we have to read about her every day… apparently no one has learned anything from the tragedy of Di… The dress is ok…it’s pretty…if I saw it on the rack pre-engagement I would probably not have purchased it. It’s too pleated.

It went so well with her eyes….and the ring.
