Where DID you get your style, Carrie Symonds? First Girlfriend’s Downing Street dress has sold out

Where DID you get your style, Carrie Symonds? First Girlfriend’s Downing Street dress has sold out… and it’s no wonder because her outfits are just like those worn by Kate Middleton

  • Carrie Symonds’s £120 Ghost tea dress sold out within hours of her wearing it 
  • Her and the Duchess of Cambridge share a love of print and quirky accessories 
  • Both fashionistas have even been snapped in block-colour puffed jackets 

For more than 15 years, the ‘Kate effect’ has seen anything worn by the Duchess of Cambridge selling out at breakneck speed.

But it seems the 37-year-old may have a rival to her fashion crown.

Carrie Symonds, dubbed Britain’s ‘First Girlfriend’, appears to have adopted Kate’s trademark middle-class chic – and, as a result, her outfits are also flying off the shelves.

Carrie’s £120 Ghost tea dress, worn to watch boyfriend Boris Johnson enter No 10, sold out within hours of her being photographed in it on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old also shares Kate’s love of a print and quirky accessories – she’s often spotted in a bandana or with a colourful clutch.

The pair even seem to share the same playfulness – both have been snapped in block-colour puffed jackets and revealing hotpants. 

Kate Middleton wore a similar dress to a charity polo day earlier this month
