Roberto Cavalli On Kate Middleton: “A Princess Should Be Sexy”

“A princess should be sexy. She is young, she is beautiful – I would like to create something special for her, but nothing too bold. I would like to prove to the world that Roberto Cavalli can dress a princess. Maybe I would use a print, keeping it young, sophisticated and sexy. Just because you are queen or princess it doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy.”

– Cinderella, watch out. If Robert Cavalli was your fairy godmother, that beautiful blue ball gown would have been a cleavage-bearing bandage dress. As if our dear Duchess of Cambridge didn’t have enough to worry about (it’s not like the heir to the royal throne is growing inside her or anything), she now has to be a “sexy,” according to Cavalli.

I’m sorry, did someone not tell him she’s pregnant? But I assume Cavalli is speaking about her fashion in the general sense; in that case, I might just give him some slack. He’s obviously just projecting some bibbidi-bobbidi-boo thinking that I’m sure male species around the world are internally nodding to.

Writing from the viewpoint of the female species, however, I think we all can agree that Kate is constantly killin’ it with her ubiquitous classy, trendy, and (at times) thrifty attire we all covet in the daily paparazzi pics.

Now, Queen Elizabeth on the other hand, there’s our problem. Zero sex appeal. Mr. Cavalli, maybe you could work on a printed dress for her? You did say “queen” or “princess” in your sexy spiel?
