Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, consults personal shoppers at London department stores, according to 'The Daily Mail.'
After announcing that she would not be hiring a stylist the world was left to wonder where Kate gets all of her stunning fashion sense. According to 'The Daily Mail,' Kate consults personal shoppers at her favorite London department stores like Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. It's been reported that these shoppers helped pick out Kate's wardrobe for her trip to Canada this month with husband Prince William.
Kate turned heads when it was reported that she wouldn't be hiring a stylist or household staff for her Kensington Palace apartment with Prince William, but people were even more schocked when it was announced that Kate wouldn't be bringing a dresser on her first trip abroad as a royal wife. Kate will bring only her hair dresser and pick out her own outfits herself, now that she's prepped wirth advice from her personal shoppers.
Personal shoppers are there to pick out outfits based on what the customer requests, whereas a stylist directs a person's style. So Kate still calls the shots, but has some helping hands.
Kate's not the only Middleton wowing the fashion world these days. Her sister Pippa has been out and about in some fabulous outfits and is reportedly seeing a lot of Prince Harry. It's also been reported that U.S. singer Usher wants Pippa to model his new lingerie line.
It seems fashion runs in the Middleton blood.
