Thanks to future-royalty Kate Middleton, it's now completely acceptable for grown women to want to dress like princesses. Today the term connotes stylish frocks and chic accessories, instead of poufy ball gowns and pink tiaras. Case in point: Kate wore a $1,393 cream and black silk chiffon Temperley dress with three-quarter length sleeves to a charity gala event with Prince William on Dec. 18. She accessorized with a velvet fitted blazer, sheer tights and a mini-clutch. Want to look like a princess for a day? Unfortunately, the long-sleeve Temperley dress from the designers Fall 2009 collection has sold out. But, you can get the look (and save some $$$) with Temperley's short-sleeve blush silk-chiffon look-alike ($897, TheOutNet.com). But you might want to hurry, princess!
