5 Celebs Who Admire Kate Middleton’s Style

Posted by PZ on August 27th, 2012

From the moment the world learned about Kate Middleton’s engagement to Prince William, the spotlight has been shining on her effortlessly elegant style. Kate kicked started her time as a royal in style – she walked down the aisle in a stunning wedding dress by Alexander McQueen, and now that she’s officially Duchess Catherine, she’s taking things up a gear – crisply tailored blazers, mid-length dresses, small clutches and mid-heels form the basis of her sophisticated wardrobe when she’s on official duty, while Kate isn’t afraid to go more casual in skinny jeans, sweaters and boots when she’s relaxing. These 5 celebrities are all loved-up with Kate’s style and has publicly admired the way she puts together her outfits.


Anne Hathaway

Anne thinks Kate’s style has a big influence on how she dresses: “She is such an advocate for dressing like a lady. I think for a few years that kind of slightly dirty look was adopted by Hollywood – the stringy hair, homeless thing. And I really tried. I was like, ‘OK, I’m going to give that a go. (But) it doesn’t suit me… I always looked kind of chubby. I’m just very grateful to Kate Middleton for making looking appropriate really fun again. Right now my fashion choices are all about Kate Middleton.”

Olivia Palermo

Olivia finds Kate’s timeless sense of style appealing: “The duchess is a wonderful role model. She has her own sense of timeless style and it’s lovely to see her wear some of Britain’s most well-respected talent, such as Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, and also bring awareness to younger brands like Erdem, who brings such an elegance and femininity to his designs.”

Mischa Barton

Mischa likes that Kate always looks well dressed and believes she is a good role model: ”I think she’s perfect. I like her style. She always looks put together, cute and pretty. I definitely wouldn’t change her. I think she’s a much more positive role model than most we see in ads and magazines. During the Olympics it’s given people so many more positive role models and she’s been one of the existing ones we look up to who’s positive and healthy and cool.”


Madonna loved Kate’s wedding dress choice and admires her fashion choices: “She is a lovely girl with a great sense of style. Her wedding dress by Alexander McQueen was very beautiful. I like her choices. She’s elegant and still knows how to have some fun. I’m a fan of her style.”

Giorgio Armani

Italian designer Giorgio Armani believes she dresses stylishly for her royal role: “She will have all the time in the world to become fully integrated into her new role and choose the most sophisticated and precious dresses and outfits for official occasions. For the royals, apparently the royal blood is not in demand any longer.Better for the generation to come. She is very different from Princess Diana, and seems a very well-balanced and a happy person. She is chic in a way the position needs.”
