Loved, imitated, emulated almost to exhaustion. Accomplices that expertise impeccable, kind manners, her fairytale love story with Prince William and not least that her wardrobe that expertly mixes haute couture garments with the most accessible low cost proposals.
Irremediably chic, decidedly sporty or invariably casual if the occasion requires it, hardly Kate Middleton misses a shot. Anticipates trends, pays homage to the mother-in-law with garments that evoke her, doses the simplicity of a fast fashion piece with the preciousness of a catwalk one.
All this while making every look and combination seem extremely easy to replicate. Were it not for that consolidated “Kate effect” that makes every garment she wears disappear from the shops, generating joy sold out for fashion houses, a little less for fans.
The January 9 the most fashionable Duchess ever – of 2020 for sure since a few days ago she earned the title of UK’s top fashion influencer – will turn off 39 candles and we, to celebrate it, could not do anything else go and plumb those style details that in all these years of public appearances, outfit after outfit, sold out after sold out, have conquered us.
From the Peter Pan collar to the dress with slit, from the clutch bag with jewel bee to the animalier skirt, from gloves with bow to the shrug fluffy, from the tartan mask to the mini matelassé hand bag. Thirty-nine (like her years) details that have kidnapped, fascinated us and that over time have outlined her image consecrating her a true Queen, pardon!… Duchess of style.
Happy birthday Kate!
