The Kate Middleton effect? Her Tory Burch dress instantly sells out

"What Kate wore" practically equates to retail gold for fashion brands - is it any real surprise that Kate Middleton's Tory Burch dress is already all sold out online?

Just yesterday on April 9, 2014, the Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing the Pauline dress from Tory Burch Resort 2014, while on an official engagement in New Zealand with her husband Prince William and their eight-month-old son Prince George.

The royal family is currently in Wellington as part of a three-week visit to New Zealand and Australia.

The duchess wore this particular Tory Burch dress to a playdate with other first-time mums at the Government House in Wellington. Her darling son Prince George on the hand, looked simply adorable in a dungaree from Rachel Riley. Tip for mums: the baby prince's dungarees are still in stock online at the British children's wear brand's e-store.

And yes, Duchess Kate's outfits are closely watched by her many admirers. Within a day, the Tory Burch dress sold out on online retailers Net-a-porter, Nordstorm, Bloomingdales as well as the main Tory Burch e-store; perhaps helped by the fact that the dress was already on sale as the American brand has been bringing in its latest Summer 2014 collection.

Sadly for Singapore fans, this Tory Burch number will not be sold at its Singapore store, said the local brand representative to herworldPLUS.

The duchess does have a penchant for shopping ready-to-wear, making it super easy for her most alert fans to grab her look right off the racks.

During the royal couple's visit to Singapore last year, the duchess wore an outfit from homegrown fashion brand Raoul, which similarly sold out swiftly online.
