So this is how much it costs to look like Kate Middleton from head to toe

Who hasn't looked at a photo of the former Kate Middleton being her classy, chic, timeless, effortlessly fashionable self and wished she could get her hands on one (or all) of those outfits?

Now, we have one ridiculously dedicated Instagrammer to show us that dreams really do come true.

Kate Urbanksa from the U.K. is clearly Kate's biggest fan. She's spent nearly $10,000 replicating everything about the Duchess' looks, from her hair and skin regimens to her designer clothes.

Urbanksa obviously doesn't have the budget that Kate does, but that hasn't stopped her — she scours sales and auction sites like eBay to score deals on Kate's designer threads, and when she can't find an outfit that fits her budget, she hires a tailor to make it at a fraction of the designer label cost.

That doesn't mean she hasn't dropped some serious cash on being a Kate superfan, though. According to The Daily Mail, Urbanksa has spent more than $3,500 on clothes and nearly $5,000 on shoes — even though she's scored some serious bargains, like getting one of Kate's favorite designer dresses on eBay for under $5. Still, it looks worth it. I could spend all day scrolling through her Instagram to see all the copycat looks she's put together.

Urbanksa nailed it when she talked about why she spends so much time and money replicating Kate's style.

"There was something about The Duchess' style that instantly struck a chord with me," she said. "She never follows trends and she picks clothes that are comfortable, elegant and classic."
