Kate is not a fashion icon

Have your say

The “Kate Effect” is rampaging through the UK high street.

Whatever she wears, women clamour for.

But according to one New York fashion guru, the Duchess of Cambridge is no trendsetter.

She follows rather than leads the way and would blend in with the crowd on any NY pavement, says the boss of Big Apple department store Neiman Marcus

I agree. And so would Kate. She has never set out to be a fashion icon.

When you’re a beautiful and elegant as her, you don’t need to be. You just look great in whatever you wear.

And when you’re destined to be the future Queen., you don’t have to turn herself into a human coat-hanger to stand out from the crowd.
