Kate Middleton is perhaps the only celebrity out there who can use the world as her personal runway. And I really do mean that literally. The royal mama is pulling out her best for her New Zealand and Australia tour when it comes to her closet and let me tell you, we just can’t get enough of her and the great “Kate Effect.”
From nautical stripes (how perfect is her yacht babe look?) to her perfect coat dresses and a lot of Easter cheer in between (only Kate Middleton can pull off wearing a yellow dress and make it look effortlessly chic, too), I can’t give her anything less than a 10+ on each outfit she’s been wearing during her tour Down Under.
Kate has been wearing a lot of her go-to designers on this trip, from LK Bennett and Zimmermann to her trusted Jenny Packman dresses and she’s been nailing each look with perfect, just-stepped-out-of-the-salon hair, makeup that is barely there, and accessories that are probably already flying off the shelves in both London and New York City. Say what you want, but Kate Middleton is basically my only celebrity style icon these days. Not only is she beautiful, she’s classy, she’s timeless and she proves to us again and again that not only you can reuse your favorite pieces from your closet more than once (what celeb does that??), but that she also doesn’t have to tease the media with high helm lines and daring dresses to get a good fashion buzz. And that is a style tip I definitely wouldn’t mind passing on to my 6-year-old daughter when she’s ready to experiment with her own look, too.
