Kate Middleton is a stunner on the regular thanks to her naturally flawless complexion, beaming smile, and flowing locks. To complement all of this natural allure, the Duchess knows how to pull an outfit together. Kate seems to effortlessly highlight her features and traits with the best of the best in designer fashions.
Although Duchess Kate uses her impeccable sense of style and spot-on fashion choices to look her best while in the public eye, her exquisite taste is also used to assist in bridging alliances between nations and to pay respect to the cultures attached to those destinations she arrives at for royal tours.
Her team relayed information back to her about trends in the nation of India prior to her visit while on royal tour with hubby Prince William, back in April. The crew did their homework and shared which notable designers of the area Middleton should don out of respect. Kate looked divine and had a gorgeous getup to suit every occasion.
Her fashion selections are so respected and spot on that Kate has influenced the now coined “Kate Effect”. Kate is expected to arrive to Canada in the fall along with her Prince and maybe even her little ones. Which designer labels will she bring along for the journey? Here are a few of her favourites.
Yes, she often wears McQueen, Burberry, Jenny Peckham, and Jimmy Choos, but Kate also has been spotted wearing Zara and most recently, a $33 pair of Gap jeans. It is clear that Middleton loves to be chic in her day-to-day, but also is partial to practicality. She can step out in a dazzling Temperley London piece one day and then throw on a pair of bargain jeans and a faux crystal Zara necklace the next. La Vie Chic certainly approves.
