The Duchess of Cambridge has become one of the world’s leading style icons in the year since her wedding to Prince William. She rarely puts a foot wrong stylewise, and whilst some have accused her of being a little boring in her style choices, the truth is that she just chooses pieces that have a classic look that she can revisit and revamp again and again. Her look is sophisticated, flawless and elegant. No wonder everything that she wears proves to be an instant sell out, and that the world’s leading designers are now flocking to dress her. For her recent tour, that has included Alexander McQueen, Prabal Gurung, Mulberry, Jonathan Saunders, Jenny Packham and Erdem amongst others, almost a role call for the recent British and New York fashion weeks.
Debenhams seems to have recognised that this Kate effect is something hypnotic to so many women, and have taken inspiration in their latest ranges. There are elements of Kate’s evening looks, daytime looks and outdoor wear, and in Jenny Packham they have one of Kate’s key designers on board producing Duchess worthy looks for her No1 collection.
