You know how when you first get your hair done, and you happen to be kind of tan, and you had an eyebrow wax recently -- maybe your nails done -- you feel awesome? Like you're ready to take on the world? Well, take those beauty treatments and multiply them by a million and that's what celebrities have -- all the time. So it really is no wonder they look amazing all the time. And despite her fresh-faced, au naturel look, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, is no exception. A recent UK Vogue article is spilling all of Kate Middleton's beauty secrets -- as well as some minor work she's had done -- and all I've gotta say is, "Man, those Brits think of everything."
For starters, the article claims that Kate's favorite color to wear is blue. Ooh, the scandal! She also favors McQueen dresses (shocker) and Stuart Weitzman shoes (egads!). But here's where things get a little interesting ... The article also claims that Kate doctors all of her dresses to have the waist sit a few centimeters above her natural waist line, in order to give the illusion of longer legs (isn't Kate like 5'11"?). She also apparently favors mid-length sleeves, so people don't think she's too skinny. And one more noteworthy wardrobe/beauty tip -- the Duchess also cocks all of her hats at a 50-degree angle to highlight her cheekbones. Genius.
And then things get tawdry. A source let it slip that a year before the royal wedding, Kate had her teeth done. Apparently she got invisible braces behind her teeth, as well as whitened them. The braces supposedly allow 8.6 teeth to show every time she smiles. So ... yeah ... Kate Middleton had braces. Call the newspapers.
At the end of the day, I really don't care if Kate had anything done. I'm still obsessed with her. And if I was a highly-photographed princess, you bet your ass I'd alter my dresses and whiten my teeth, too. Kate looks amazing, and even if she did have "work" done, it looks totally natural. So suck on that, haters.
