Buy a Copy of Kim Kardashian's Wedding Dress -- for $1,600

David’s Bridal is inviting you to wear Kim Kardashian‘s wedding dress — a replica, that is. E! confirms that two of the newlywed’s three Vera Wang gowns are being recreated for the David’s Bridal White by Vera Wang line — and they could be yours next year.

The designer is reimagining Kardashian’s main dress (pictured) — the one she wore to walk down the aisle — and the mermaid gown she wore for her first dance with now-husband Kris Humphries.

“There is a certain classicism to the first, and that wasn’t about a huge fashion statement,” Wang tells E! “It was about that kind of … Elizabeth Taylor beauty, and that voluptuousness.” Ten women spent three months creating that look, hand-piecing lace onto the bodice, train and veil, but Wang says the David’s Bridal gown won’t be quite as involved. “I think it’s very romantic, and that was what we were really after,” she says. “It will certainly capture that sense of old-fashioned romance.”

The mermaid dress, which Wang calls “a bit sexier,” will be perfect for an evening wedding, she says. “It’s … a bit more tango or cha-cha or dance-oriented.”

E! reports that both dresses will be available at select David’s Bridal stores in February, with an estimated price tag of less than $1,600 each. That’s a bit pricier than replicas of the Duchess of Cambridge‘s Alexander McQueen wedding gown, which were set to sell for $800. Tell us: Would you buy a copy of Kardashian’s wedding gown?

Who would want their daughter to have anything that looked liked a porn star wore it.

Yeah Jellybeans, because a classic ball gown by Vera Wang just screams “porn star”.
You flippin’ dimwit.

I really don’t think it’s all that great for all the hype. I hate the headband!!

a wedding dress should be your very own. who would want to copy someone else design? i’m sure she’ll get the proceeds anyway.

kim is channeling the 80s with the headband!

The headline should read, “Be original for your special day, buy a knock off.” This was the same dress that was in the movie Bride Wars years ago. Seriously the only people buying into the Kardashians hype, are the Kardashians and anyone who does not have a brain or life.

I think the headband is classy and elegant

I think the dress is pretty. It’s not the type I would wear myself, as I don’t care for ball gowns, but think it looks pretty on her. Not a big fan of the head band though.
