The soon-to-be Princess Kate Middleton is trending after a sexy see-through dress she once wore sold at auction for $125,000.
As a student at St. Andrew's University in 2002, Middleton modeled the dress, which was designed by a friend, at a charity auction. Although the garment in question was meant to be a skirt, Middleton instead wore the sheer number as a mini-dress, catching the attention of heir to the British throne Prince William, who was sitting in the front row.
The prince began dating Middleton shortly thereafter and the rest of the fairy tale everyone knows. The royal wedding is set for April 29 in London’s Westminster Abbey.
