It’s true, The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t a fashionista. She is a style icon.
You need to know Kate is my best friend. In my dreams, at least.
And when your best friend gets attacked, you stand up for her.
So today: back off, fashion world.
And that is where it starts. Apparently, Kate isn’t deserving of being among the company of models, designers and well… fashionistas.
“A style icon is born, not made. Personal flair is a talent, not a skill to be faked,” is what the much-discussed Sydney Morning Herald article said. “Kate has not, and never will be, a fashion girl.”
To that I say…Kate is MY style icon…because:
She is not a fashionista. I agree with the critics there. And that is why she IS a style icon.
She doesn’t parade herself in ostrich feather skirts with Marge-Simpson inspired hair. No.
She wears what I can wear.
She wears beautiful dresses to classy events.
She wears jeans and a t-shirt to play with her son.
She wears dresses and wedges and heels and blazers and skirts…all of the things I can wear.
Her fashion doesn’t make me think WTF? Instead it makes me think… Ooh, I think I have something similar in my closet.
Fashionistas come and go. Style icons stay.
The next thing she got slammed for was being "cheap and cheerful". Not all her clothes are "cheap and cheerful". Unless you consider a thousand dollar dress "cheap" (I do not). And I appreciate her wearing some fancy expensive dresses sometimes, and then next wear a Zara t-shirt (one that I can afford). So, Kate, bring on the "cheap and cheerful".
Apparently, she also does a big fashion-no-no for wearing something twice. GASP. How dare a royal with tax-payers money to burn wear something twice?
I LOVE that she wears outfits twice or more. You know why? Because I wear outfits more than once. Everyone who wears clothing wears them more than once. Only designers and models and billionaires with a ridiculous amount of money to waste wear something once (to those people, be like Kate and give the money you save on different outfits to charity).
