Banana Republic Clones “the” Kate Middleton Reiss Dress

Honestly, Banana Republic is a fantastic resource for go-to modern basics so blatantly “reworking” a dress from Reiss, a very close competitor on the obtainable fashion front does seems strange. At least the dress fit Kate better than those pink pants on Pippa.
We know, it’s Kate Middleton’s dress that they were honing in on, but copying an Alexander McQueen would make more sense. What do you think?
