In an interview with The Daily Beast, shoe designer Nicholas Kirkwood made a remark about Kate Middleton that’s slowly making it’s way around the internet today. He said that he doesn’t think the newly minted royal is princess-y enough:
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. 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!’”
We’re assuming that by “you’re meant to be a princess-y type of person,” what Kirkwood was trying to say was, “you actually are a Duchess.”
Regardless, I kind of like that Middleton keeps it real. I’d like to say that if I were in her place, I’d look like Lady fucking Gaga every day just because I could, but the reality is that I would probably want to wear sweatpants and a scrunchie all the time just as much as I do now. I’m a casual type of gal, and I think Kate is too. So I don’t begrudge her her high street clothes; rather, I say, Kate, you just do you, and fuck the haters.
