The Designing Duchess: Kate's Beautiful High-End Wardrobe


Caption: At the races: At the 2011 Derby Kate wore a £195 Reiss dress, £145 LK Bennett shoes and £460 Joseph jacket (left). At Ascot this year, she wore a Dolce & Gabbana £2,415 lace gown, a £1,050 Jane Taylor hat and £500 Gianvito Rossi heels 

She was once hailed ‘Queen of the High Street’ for championing mid-range clothes within reach of the average woman’s budget.

But the Duchess of Cambridge has been re-crowned the ‘Designer Duchess’ after replacing her trusted Zara dresses and Topshop bargains with haute couture.

Once a reluctant style icon, Kate –who famously wore a £50 blue Zara dress the day after her wedding – is now almost exclusively choosing high-end gowns, coats and shoes. And the 34-year-old’s new tastes do not come cheap.

Much of her working wardrobe is paid for by the Prince of Wales, who funds William, Kate and Harry’s official activities.

Royal accounts published last week show Charles’s ‘other expenditure’, which includes money spent on Kate and his sons, rose 9.5 per cent in a year to £3.2 million – although aides refused to specify how much of that went on Kate’s wardrobe.  Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.
