We’ve always conceived the larger-than-life stories of Cinderella and Rapunzel as fairy tales till we saw Kate Middleton donning the royal crown and becoming a queen! Who wouldn’t want to swap positions with her? With a simple girl-next-door attitude and a genuine smile, she has rocked high-end designer wears and brands with such a poise and Ă©lan that we just cannot help but fall flat over her! Yes, weâ€™re talking here about the fashionista, Kate Middleton. You might have read oodles of articles about what she wears on a daily basis or on special functions, but here we’ve got reasons about what makes Kate who she isâ€”a diva in the truest sense of the term.
7. The Girl-Next-Door
No, like most of the fashion whos-who around, she doesn’t have the pseudo â€śgirl-next-doorâ€ť attitude, but she is the girl-next-door! She might have been sucked into the English Royalty recently, but that hasn’t really disturbed the person Kate, and it is specifically this attitude that rocks in her!
After all, when do we get to see a royalty in plain tee and denim? And, how many times do you see a â€ścelebrityâ€ť re-wearing her dresses and even shoes in public, let alone the princesses and queens?
6. Chic, Yet Traditional
We cannot really visualize a celebrity without that stylish and chic attitude, can we? But, our love for Kate Middleton goes a bit further when we see her appearing at the formal dos in elegant gowns or smart tailored suits with that special hat on, weâ€™re just floored.
Hats might be a statement for us Indians, but to the English, those are a symbol of tradition. Needless to say, Kate just aces it when she amalgamates modernity and tradition with her uber-cool hats!
5. Being StylishÂ Doesn’tÂ Come At Much Cost!
Most of us swear by our Zara tees or dresses, donâ€™t we? Well, youâ€™d be quite surprised to know that the Duchess of Cambridge too does the same! Yes, yes, we know she has her private dressmaker (or, designer should we say?) and all the high-end designers are one call away, but this pretty lady isn’t all about expensive clothes, dresses and shoes.
In fact, just a day after her royal wedding, she was seen in a simple Zara dress, and a couple of weeks before her marriage, this epitome of elegance was seen buying tops and dresses from stores like Warehouse and Topshop worth $350! Strange but cool, isn’t it?
4. Revealing And Skimpy? Well, Thatâ€™s Not Kate!
No, youâ€™d never see her wearing a â€śballoonâ€ť dress or an over-sized dress! Neither will you ever see her in a dress a bit too skimpy or revealing. Sheâ€™s the one whoâ€™s consistently been on the top fashionista list since her nuptials to Prince William without ever having the need to go a bit further and wear something too revealing!
She has always preferred well-fitted gowns and bodycon dresses that accentuate her svelte figure.
3. Chuck Black And Purple, Navy Blue Is The New Royal!
Black might be our favorite color for parties and royal dining, and purple might be the color of Royalty, but Kate toppled the clichĂ©s upside down when she began swearing (by) and wearing navy blue at all the royal dos and events!
Yea, she might have raised a few eye-brows (you canâ€™t be a fashionista without doing so, can you?), after consistently seeing her rocking every outfit in navy blue, no one can really help himself/herself from getting awed each time!
2. Sheer Pantyhose Can Be Flattering!
No matter what time of the day or which part of the world sheâ€™s in, youâ€™d hardly see Kate with bare legs. The pantyhose might come in the way of being â€śsexyâ€ť for many fashion-stars around the world, but with Kate, subtlety is the new name for sexy.
After all, who wouldnâ€™t die for those smooth, silky legs devoid of any unwanted attraction?
1. Smile To Win The World
We think that Kateâ€™s mantra for being Fashionâ€™s IT girl is to smile through all odds!
There have hardly been any moment when we’ve seen her not smiling; in fact, we wouldn’t be wrong to say that sheâ€™s one of those few celebrities who donâ€™t smile only for the paparazzi! Kate, we love you for that!
