Royal Fashion Crush: Kate & Pippa Middleton
The British are coming and boy do they look good.
The newly-crowned Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine (Kate) Middleton, 29, and her newly single sibling Pippa Middleton, 27, are sisters with serious style.
When Kate announced her engagement to Prince William wearing a stunning Issa London Sapphire dress, the frock sold out at retailer Harvey Nichols within hours of the images going viral, making Kate a bonafide breakout fashion star with the ability to inspire the masses in her good taste. Pippa grabbed the world’s attention donning a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown as Kate’s maid of honor (her rock hard tush didn’t hurt).
Sensible, demure and practical Kate sticks to classic, body skimming cuts in dark navys and neutrals. Younger sister Pippa embraces splashes of color, ruffles, plunging necklines, sheer fabrics and seductive mid-thigh skirts. One thing the girls have in common though are those kooky and dramatic hats that are a staple of British high society.
Take a look at the some of Kate & Pippa’s most memorable looks helping them to stage a British Fashion Revolution, and lucky for us, it will be televised.
