First there was Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren; now, there’s Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. After a ten-year relationship with Prince William, son of Princess Diana and Duke of Cambridge, he and Kate tied the knot, turning her into Duchess Kate Middleton.
Everyone knows her as the latest addition to the English Royal Family, but most of her attention from the media has been generated by her fashion choices when she came onto the Royal Scene. Taking the conservative-look to a new level of chic with her taste in hats and the like, Princess Kate has been compared to such style icons as Jackie Kennedy and Brigitte Bardot.
Women all over the world look to her for style advice by observing what she wears to a night out with her husband or out to a charity event. I even find myself wondering what hat she will wear next, or where she got her latest heels. With over hundreds of websites dedicated solely to her fashion sense, Kate has quickly earned her title as a Fashion Maven.
Want to style yourself like Kate for a night? Stick to pieces that are feminine and soft, with embellishments like bows, pearls, or lace. The trick to mastering her style is to exude extreme femininity while maintaining an elegant air of conservativeness. Once you’ve got that down, you’re ready to tackle volunteering at the soup-kitchen!
