Important fashion news! A “study” by a Parisian fashion company found that British women wear “longer skirts and less revealing tops” than women elsewhere in Europe, especially Italy and France. The “study” posits that Kate Middleton’s preppy-princess style is encouraging women to dress more “demure” by covering their upper arms and knees. (Kate Moss is also cited by the study being quoted as saying women should cover up, which is funny because Kate’s the most Most Likely To Be Naked model ever.) I don’t doubt that Duchess Kate’s inspired women to purchase more preppy fashions like the ones at LK Bennett and Reiss. But there’s something else this “study” might want to note: the UK is cold, y’all. Colder than Italy. Colder than France.

Just a thought. [NY Daily News]

“[The crowds] were singing and cheering all night long, so the excitement of that, the nervousness of me and everyone singing — I slept for about half an hour. The hardest thing was trying to walk down the stairs with my spurs on, sideways. I had visions of myself and my brother [Prince Harry] colliding and crashing down the stairs.”

Prince William discusses the stressful night before his internationally televised wedding to Kate Middleton in a new TV special called, “Elizabeth: Queen, Wife, Mother.” Apparently the Queen also helped him deal with some guest list drama: “There was very much a subdued moment when I was handed a list with 777 names on it — not one person I knew or Catherine knew. I went to [Queen Elizabeth] and said, ‘Listen, I’ve got this list, not one person I know — what do I do?’ And she went, ‘Get rid of it. Start from your friends and then we’ll add those we need to in due course. It’s your day.’” Awww! [Us Weekly]

  • Kate Middleton, feminist? The future Queen of England might be holding off on getting pregnant until the rules of succession to the throne are rewritten.  The UK recently decided that firstborn girls should be equal to firstborn boys in line to the throne and The Daily Beast suggests Kate wants to wait until the ink is dry on the rule change to get knocked up.

Kate Middleton isn’t exactly my fashion hero, given her somewhat mundane personal style selections (don’t hit me!), but I must confess that even I, a jaded fashion freak, am occasionally charmed by some of her more impressive choices. My favorite thus far of her sartorial standouts has been the Grecian-style lavender Alexander McQueen gown she wore in July to the Hollywood BAFTA dinner, but I’ll admit I’m equally dazzled by this week’s stunning floor-length split-to-the-thigh Roland Mouret. I know she’s married to the prince and all (I mean, duh), but Kate is a young, fresh-faced woman who shouldn’t feel confined to matronly wear. In particular, I like to see some glamour from her. This gown is the perfect synthesis of proper (the length, the long sleeves, the high neckline) and punchy (the off-center zipper in the back, the daring exposure of leg, and especially those shimmering Jimmy Choos). To this I say, Kate may in fact be wholly worthy of her iconic reputation. [photos via People Style Watch]

The Duchess Has Graduated

One year after her marriage to Prince William, the former Kate Middleton has something new to celebrate: Her “induction” is now complete and St. James’ Palace considers her a “fully fledged member” of the British monarchy, a senior royal source tells CNN. She achieved this vaunted status by fulfilling all her objectives of the past year, including charity work and her first speech, the source explains. Prior to the royal wedding, some had feared the “commoner” Kate would have a difficult transition. Read more…

Kate Middleton isn’t just an English rose glowing with natural beauty. She also fancies a bit of bee venom on her skin — AKA “natural” Botox — to sooth lines and wrinkles. Her stepmother-in-law, Camilla Parker-Bowles, turned her on to the $265 bee venom facial by aesthetician Deborah Mitchell, who works with Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. Mitchell runs a London spa called Heaven and has been working with Camilla for seven years; no doubt due in part to her discretion regarding celeb clients, she began working with Kate shortly after her engagement.
