London - A doll featuring Pippa Middleton in the Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, has gone on sale.

A Pippa Middleton doll has gone on sale in the US.

The brunette beauty - sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine - has inspired custom doll manufacturer Herobuilders.com to create a toy in her likeness after she wowed the world with her pert posterior in an Alexander McQueen dress at Catherine's wedding in April.

The website also offers a model of the Duchess of Cambridge in her own McQueen gown with Herobuilders.com noting on its website that the designs show "why we love the British - they have a Queen, they gave us the Beatles and now it's all Kate and Pippa. (sic)"

The dolls range in price from $49.95 for Pippa in her bridesmaid's dress to $189.95 for Catherine in a replica of her wedding dress.

Meanwhile, a new documentary on Pippa - who works as a party planner in London and is reportedly writing a book on the art of entertaining - will air on the Biography channel in America on Wednesday night.
