Shock news of the day: Yet another outfit sported by Kate Middleton has disappeared off the shelves, a mere two weeks after the princess-to-be was spotted wearing it.

Kate Middleton caused a bit of a commotion when she attended a friend's wedding wearing a black velvet coat from Libélula (designed by Sophie Cranston). Not only did it cause a bit of a stir because of the colour (Black? to a wedding?) but the plunging sheer dress she paired it with had some tongues wagging.

According to The Daily Mirror, the velvet coat is already sold out, despite its £310 price tag. If you didn't manage to get one in time, a cheaper copycat version should be coming to a high street store near you shortly (remember what happened with that blue Issa dress?)

In other Kate news, the now-as-famous-as-she-is Nannette Reiss dress that Prince Will's fiancée wore for her engagement photo is hitting stores again tomorrow, reports Elle UK. Just register at to register and find out when you can get your hands on it.

Note to Kate: can you please start stepping out more? We're running out of outfits to copy.
