Spotlight on Kate's ... knees?
We noted earlier this month when the Daily Telegraph's fashion director, Hilary Alexander, posited that Kate Middleton was "doing a 'Michelle O'" by wearing a little-known designer brand, much as Obama's public attire has put young designers in the media spotlight. (Alexander's column was inspired by the now-sold-out black velvet Libelula coat Kate wore to a recent wedding.)
Alexander has another theory about similarities between the royal bride-to-be and the first lady: that "Kate Middleton is going to do for the knees what Michelle Obama did for the arms."
Style sleuths must have noticed, she writes, that "no matter what Middleton wears, her knees are almost always on show. ... her skirts are never of the demure, over-the-knee variety, but always cropped just short enough to display the soon-to-be-royal patellas."
We're wondering if she consulted a thesaurus for "patella."
