Kate Middleton Vs. Kim Kardashian: Who Wore It Best?

This past weekend, Kate Middleton wore yet another piece from her small but cherished “surprisingly plain-looking dresses by Alexander McQueen” collection to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pageant. This was even more exciting to people than it usually is when Kate wears one of these dresses, because guess what? Kim Kardashian was photographed in (basically) the very same dress last April! What a world.

It might seem obvious “who wore it best,” because Tan Mom would probably look classier in that dress than Kim Kardashian. But before you vote, allow me to play devil’s advocate for a second:

-Kim’s dress fits her quite snugly, while Kate’s dress wrinkles a bit in some places.

-Kim makes it her own with some trashy snakeskin platforms and a spiky necklace, while Kate Middleton can never really have a style of her own, because her image belongs to Great Britain. (Also, I know Cosmo says they make your legs look longer, but nude pumps are way boring! Your legs look long enough. Wear cooler shoes.)

-Kim wore it first, which maybe counts for something in fashion land?

Okay, I’m tired of trying to defend Kim Kardashian. Should I even bother posting a poll?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      Yeah, Kim’s dress fits her snugly…kind of like a sausage casing.

      Not that I’m implying either that Kim is too heavy or that she is less pretty than Kate because she is heavier. But Kate looks as though she might be able to get her dress off herself, without damaging it, and as though she might be able to move without ripping its seams, and I consider those things to be pluses. And I like nude pumps, although it would be nice if she occasionally wore different shoes.

      I vote Kate, but this is not one of Kim’s worst looks!
      I think the dress suits sleeves and a longer hemline as Kate has it. And the hat! Royal hats always win!

      Kate will always wear it best.

      Kim would probably look different if she had to wear a hat ,too.

    • Patricia

      Kim Kardashian actually looks demure in this.

      I voted for Kim, which is VERY out-of-the-box for me, because I’m mostly proud she’s not just wearing a bandage dress.
