Kate Middleton 'wears too much high street stuff' says Nicholas Kirkwood
German Shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood had a bit of a pop at Kate Middleton's shoes earlier this week. Talking to The Daily Beast, her said "She just wears too much high street stuff. I know she's trying to be democratic, but I don't know how many pairs of LK Bennett you can wear." He then added "She does occasionally come out and is wearing [Alexander] McQueen or something like that. It's like, 'Do that more! You're meant to be a princess-y type of person, so act like one!"
Yeah, this will get her wearing your shoes, Kirkwood.
He isn't the only fashion designer to have a pop at the Duchess of Cambridge, Vivienne Westwood has previously said that she's an ordinary woman and a high street shopper. Shame, because we'd love to see Kate in some Anglomania.
But wait a minute, sulky fashion designers, isn't that what we like about Kate? That she's ordinary? She scrubs up nice, but she still looks like someone you could have a chat and a coffee with - she's totally relatable. She's not meant to be a designer clothes horse, and most of us like her because she isn't. She'd get excited about wearing a gorgeous dress from New Look if it suited her. Her choices might not be daring, but she's never looked anything but elegant and sophisticated.
What do we think? Love Kate's style, or think it's a bit dull? Tell us in the poll below.
