A quickly approaching royal wedding. A new British style icon. A chance for a tourist-friendly college art project?

Last week, 13 Royal College of Art students gathered in front of Buckingham Palace, dressed as Kate Middleton look-a-likes. The students had studied photos of Middleton's dark blue engagement dress with a plunging neckline and sewed their own versions. They also replicated her massive diamond-and-sapphire engagement ring from Prince William.
