Vivienne Westwood faults Kate's fashion sense

By Autumn Brewington

Since the engagement of Prince William and Kate Middleton was announced, people have been tripping over each other to praise the royal bride-to-be's fashion sense. Copies of her clothes have flown off the shelves. Just last week, the Wall Street Journal noted how Kate's style might influence American fall collections.

But amid the speculation at London's Fashion Week about who's designing the royal wedding dress, designer Vivienne Westwood made it clear she was not in the running.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Westwood said:

''I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton but I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style.''

She laughed then added: ''Sorry. I'm not going to say any more, that's it.

''When people ask me where she's going to get the dress from -- she's definitely not going to get it from me, or I would have heard.''

Sounds embarrassingly like sour grapes since all "fashion sense" is inspired by following the herd up whatever wierd tree appeals at that moment.

Ms Westwood has apparently been unable to convince Ms Middleton to climb her tree.

Meaning they don't share the same taste in clothes.

All the more for them as does, as my dad used to say when somebody openly disliked my mum's cooking.

Kate Middleton's style sense is too conservative for Vivienne Westwood designs. It would have been a surefire sign that hell had frozen over.
