13 Great Eyelet Lace Buys Inspired By Kate's Now-Famous Zimmerman Dress

Kate Middleton is a bonafide fashion icon, and fashion bloggers and sites everywhere are always following what the Duchess is wearing.

With the Zimmerman number coming in at just over $500, the eyelet lace frock probably isn't for everyone — even though it's pretty hard for anyone to dislike it.
