Kate Middleton’s fashion choices are iconic. So much so that not even her close friends are immune to the Kate effect.

Case in point? When it came time for K-Middy’s close friend Sophie Carter to walk down the aisle this past Saturday, she took a major sartorial cue from the Duchess of Cambridge.

Does that dress look familiar? Well, maybe it’s because it’s essentially a replica of the Sarah Burton–designed Alexander McQueen gown Kate wore during her 2011 nuptials to Prince William. See?

Spot the same French Chantilly lace sleeves, smooth silk skirt and appliqué lace detailing on their veils. Honestly, the only difference is that Carter’s neckline is halter instead of sweetheart and it has more of a flourish.

Welp, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
