Special Reports: UK Royal Wedding

A combination picture shows a file picture of Catherine (L), Duchess of Cambridge,
waving in her royal wedding gown, and Susana Xui (R), posing in a copy of the gown
after purchasing it at a studio in Suzhou, Jiangsu province May 5, 2011. Yang Lifei,
a Chinese fashion designer, originally made a copy of the gown for a British TV
channel. After the dress was completed, her small wedding dress business received
more than half a dozen orders in her hometown and other parts of China, as well as
Paris, with prices ranging from 3,500 RMB ($540) in China to 8,000 RMB ($1230) in
France. Britain's Prince William married his fiancee, Kate Middleton, last Friday.
Her wedding dress was designed by Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, ending months
of fevered speculation in the fashion world over who would create one of the most
talked-about outfits of the decade.[Photo/Agencies]
