Here's Proof That We All Want to Be Like Kate Middleton

kate middletonBeing that it has been advertised in every blog, newspaper, and magazine this side of Texas, I'm sure you've heard that New York Fashion Week is underway. Woo-hoo! A bunch of exclusive shows and fancy parties none of us get to go to.

So, what exactly is going on on the roped-off runways we mortals aren't privy to? What are the hot new designers showing? What are the spring trends we absolutely need to know about? Two words: Kate. Middleton.

Oh, yes, the Duchess of Cambridge is all over the New York fashion scene.


Since Kate has been making her rounds as, well, Duchess Catherine, she has made an indelible mark in the world of fashion. Anything she wears sells out in a matter of moments, and it seems the world has collectively made a small shift towards dressing more conservatively because of her. And designers are embracing that. Word on the street is, it's all about tailored, neat, streamlined clothing at Fashion Week.

Stylist and reality TV personality Rachel Zoe recently said, "We are definitely returning to a time when we want things that are more timeless and polished, not looking a mess." And fashion designers across the board seem to agree, including Jason Wu, who said, "Now people are interested in looking ladylike.” I like it. A more proper “English” feel. Except I'm not so sure it will work for every body.

See, Kate is tall -- really tall. And thin -- really thin. Classic, fitted clothes look great on her figure. I don't think they'd look quite the same way on, say, somebody like Kim Kardashian or Reese Witherspoon.

Or maybe it's just the whole "ladylike" vibe will be making a comeback. Frilly dresses, pumps, cardigan sweaters, and of course, heads of shiny raven locks. Perhaps we'll be saying "bye" to things like jumpsuits, platform heels, and miniature mini skirts.

Guess we’ll have to wait to find out, though. We weren’t invited to any shows, ‘member?

Are you a fan of Kate Middleton's style?
