Kate's fashion reign continues
Promoting its article with "Kate the Great: A Royal Inspiration on the Runways," the Wall Street Journal reported today on how upcoming American fashions seem to be inspired by Prince William's fiancee, Kate Middleton.
"I think there's a little bit of royal envy going on here," Robert Burke, president of the New York-based luxury-goods consulting firm Robert Burke Associates, told the newspaper. Kate's "brand of modern modesty -- ladylike clothes that are also sexy and streamlined -- is showing up as a fall theme at New York Fashion Week," the Journal posits.
Meanwhile, London's Metro reported on a mildly nauseating edition to the royal-wedding souvenirs hitting the market: airsick bags. Available in royal blue or red, the bags (tagline: Throne up) are screen-printed by graphic designer Lydia Leith. They show a miniature drawing of the royal couple and sell for £3 each.
