LONDON, ENGLAND - APRIL 29: Sister of the bride and Maid of Honour Pippa Middleton (C) holds hands with Grace Van Cutsem as they arrive to attend the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 in London, England. The marriage of the second in line to the British throne is to be led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and will be attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have also flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry of the Royal Wedding. Dan Kitwood/Getty Images

(CBS) - Copies of the slim-fitting, ivory maid of honor gown that Pippa Middleton wore at the April 29 royal wedding are hitting the high street.

British department store Debenhams is planning to sell replicas this fall at just a fraction of the cost of the original.

Designed by Alexander McQueen, like Kate's wedding dress, Pippa's satin-based crepe gown transformed her into an international style star immediately after she stepped out in Westminster Abbey.

The figure-hugging design accentuated her slim frame and featured a cowl neck and buttons in the back, mirroring her sister's gown.

The original reportedly cost about $32, 506, but the replica will retail for $277 and will be available in September, according to the AFP.

"Both men and women everywhere were instantly talking about Pippa, so naturally brides-to-be will want to emulate her classic look -- both for themselves or their bridesmaids," said Alain Mehada, chief personal shopper at Debenhams branch on London's Oxford Street.

The retailer also has plans to sell versions of the Alice Temperley emerald evening gown that Pippa wore to the evening reception, which will be priced at $160.
