It is no surprise that there are lots of women out there who love Kate’s style (Hello everyone who has ever visited this website) but what did surprise me lately was as I was flipping through InStyle‘s October 2013 issue and came across a column by Diane von Furstenberg where she lists the women that inspire her. Women like Marlene Dietrich, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jacqueline Onassis and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Why did Kate being on this list surprise me? Because seriously fabulous and fashionable women like DVF are now using Kate as an inspiration in their designing. How cool is that!
Diane von Furstenberg is perhaps best known for her ubiquitous wrap dress and is an American style legend. If you’ve never worn one of her pieces before, friends, you are missing out. They are cut to flatter and yet still be comfortable. Ms. von Furstenberg (who was once a Princess, herself) summed up Kate’s look in a very concise way which I thought was one of the best ways I’ve heard it put:
“Kate is fresh and polished without being boring.”
In case you don’t remember, Kate has worn DVF before. Here’s one of my all-time favorite Kate looks, wearing a green DVF dress.
Here are some of my favorite DVF looks that are now even more exciting seeing as they were inspired by Kate herself!
