Addiction thirty-one: A ROYAL FASHION ICON

With the UK and the rest of the world going crazy over the recent royal announcement this will be the start of a whole new life in the public eye for Kate Middleton. Everything from what she does to what she wears will be scrutinized, if the late Princess Diana is anything to go by.

Ever since we lost Diana we’ve been trying to replace her, we briefly thought the Countess of Wessex might do it but that didn’t last as she had no glamour or style. Then there was Zara who more successfully represented the new face of the royals but we haven’t seen or heard much recently. Even though she could pull off a beautiful frock she essentially is more of a tom boy and athlete than a fashion icon.

ISSA dress that Kate wore for the engagement interview has already sold out! Which shows this girl’s potential fashion power and soon Vogue will be calling.

Diana herself graced the cover of Vogue several times, I wonder how quickly they will get Kate on it.

Speaking of Vogue in my vast collection of old copies of the mag I have kept the “A Royal Salute” issue published in Dec 2001. It was dedicated to all things royal and I have a feeling that they might be doing something similar very soon.
