The Kate Middleton Effect

One of the most exciting stories about the British royal family is undoubtedly the impact Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge has on fashion

Kate Middleton is one of the most prominent fashion personalities in the United Kingdom, today. After her romantic liaison with Prince William got officially confirmed through an engagement in Kenya, in this (worldwide) infamous ecologically-conscious zone, which mostly houses vast amount of greenery, schools, and students, and was even formerly a cattle ranch, all eyes were fixated on what Middleton would choose as her engagement dress. It was a royal blue Issa dress that matched her new sapphire engagement ring, from Prince William. The dress was made by Daniella Issa Helayel, who left Issa in 2013, but at the time of Kate’s engagement, the fashion designer had made a typical silk jersey dress, which was also somewhat designated as a proper classic item. Daniella was thrilled that Kate had chosen Issa for her wedding day and even went so far as to throw plenty of kind words to describe the princess along the way.

Kate has often been cited as a fashion inspiration source for many women around the world. This accomplishment of hers has even bizarrely gone into the cosmetic surgery department, and began right after Kate’s engagement to William, even though the young couple had dated for many years previously. This effect is important to the British fashion industry because even popular labels, such as L. K. Bennett have gone on record to state that when Middleton is spotted in a dress, it immediately finds itself on a waiting list. Furthermore, Whistles has also described her perfect material for adverts really since it is so tough for ordinary customers to copy her style; Middleton prefers to avoid being trendy with fashion, unlike reality television stars, which means that by the time the public will actually see Kate in a dress it would have sadly already long gone out of stock in stores.

The Duchess of Cambridge has also been put on the cover of several magazines, such as for Vanity Fair in 2012, and for Vogue’s 100-year celebratory issue in June 2016, and these accomplishments have actually further cemented Kate’s status as “a modern day British fashion icon”. Kate is also a frequenter on numerous fashion lists, from best dressed in People (2007 and 2010), to evolving into a “top style icon” in Tatler (2007). I think the Duchess does a great job in ensuring a prominent member of the British royal family is always putting her best foot forward, for fashion selections. Two of my most favourite look of hers would be: for pre-wedding, I would select the bold outfit Kate wore to a charity roller disco in September 2008, and post-wedding to Prince William, for Kate, would be a glittering sequinned dress from one of her favourite fashion labels of all time, Jenny Packham.
