Kate Middleton Look-a-Like Launches Princess Worthy Lingerie

What would you do if you looked like Kate Middleton?  Native California girl Melissa Pelz can answer that question.

The Princess doppelganger moved to London a few years ago to entrench herself in Brit culture, and more than a few folks noticed the future royal resemblance.  So in addition to making press appearances, the enterprising Kate look-a-like recently launched the limited edition Ligne de Soie Royal Bridal Collection.  

Her regal lingerie line includes the Royal Sapphire Silk Nightdress ($150) and the Royal Robe ($279).  The pure white silk robe with matching royal blue sapphire sash and buttons reflects the classic, feminine style that Kate embraces.

"It's interesting that because I resemble Kate, people frequently ask me what I think of her style, or what her wedding dress will look like, or [even] what I wear while I'm getting ready to 'become her,'" says Melissa.  

"I think that overall she's got a simple, sleek, refined style. [But] because of what I do in my daily life as a lounge wear designer, I'm mostly interested in what she wears out of the public eye, while lounging around in the privacy of her home.  I always think it must be something really luxurious -- something to make her not just look like, but truly feel like a princess."  


Melissa hopes the launch of her Royal Bridal Collection will ensure that women across the pond and in the U.S. have the chance to play princess too.
