We Found Wallet-Friendly Clones Of 2018's Hottest Dress Of The Year

Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Jen Aniston all loved The Vampire's Wife frock, and it even made an appearance at the royal wedding.

It's been hailed as THE dress of 2018 by Vogue, and for good reason.

The 'Falconetti' frock from British label The Vampire's Wife -- and its whimsically-named sisters, 'Festival', 'Belle' and 'Cinderella' -- has been worn by the whos-who of It-girls in the past 12 months.

The effortlessly cool Keira, Sienna, Florence Welch and Tilda Swinton are all fans. Even the notoriously safe Jen Aniston has worn the dress, albeit in a very safe colour.

Demure details -- a high neckline, long sleeves and midi length -- make the dresses rather prim and proper, but they're far from stuffy. That's thanks to the preppy floral prints, sexy textures (velvet) and those delightfully fun frills on the hem and cuffs.

They're also ultra-flattering, with their sheath-like shape suiting a range of sizes and body types. Covering up has never been so cool.

The darkly romantic label was co-founded by ex-model Susie Cave -- wife of Aussie muso Nick Cave --  in 2014, and has slowly risen to the fore. Prices start at the high $1,000 mark -- or more for silk designs -- but we did some looking and rustled up a few affordable alternatives if your budget doesn't stretch that far.
