When you’re a jet-setting duchess, all eyes typically are on you and your kids to see who you’re wearing, what your hair looks like, and if that British stiff upper lip is curling at all because you think your balding husband is getting too close to some commoner tramps. Well, Duchess Kate isn’t like most duchesses, and she’s all about letting others have their moment, especially on their wedding date. Rather than pull a Taylor Swift and make it all about her, Kate throws her friends a bone and “uglies” herself in the eyes of the paparazzi by re-wearing outfits so photos of her on that day aren’t as fresh. How kind…let’s just hope she remembers to get them dry cleaned!
People says Kate and the rest of her brood attended a wedding Saturday for her friend Sophie Carter. She wore a blue coat dress by Catherine Walker & Co. to the occasion, and if you happen to hear dry heaving today in the British Vogue office, that’s because Kate has already worn the thing when she arrived in Berlin in the summer of 2017 (seen above) with Prince William and their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Royal fashion watchers are onto Kate, saying this is her way to step back into the shadows to give the bride her special day. When Prince Hot Ginge and Duchess Meghan were married earlier this year, Kate recycled the outfit she wore to Charlotte’s christening. That outfit must be a real favorite because she also wore it to THE QUEEN’s birthday in 2016.
On the one hand, I understand since I recycle old outfits every five days. Oh, who are we kidding. I basically only wear two outfits and occasionally accent them with a scarf if I’m feeling fresh or just cold, and that’s Old Navy-caliber fashion. Kate’s shit costs more than my rent, so why shouldn’t she give them a few laps around Kensington Palace before donating them to Goodwill? Of course, now that the Yankee Doodle is competing with her for Best Dressed rankings, I would count my blessings if I was Sophie. Going forward, Kate’s going to show up to these weddings serving us Jennifer Lopez/Halsey-at-the-Grammys underboob just to show us all she’s the OG Duchess of couture…with a mild dose of commoner sleaze!
