Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Kate Middleton
We’ve been watching Kate Middleton for years now. Ever since she made her debut about a decade ago as Prince William’s plus one, we’ve all been a little envious. Not only did she land herself a prince, she also established herself as the most stylish of all the royal girlfriends. She has the sort of fashion sense that’s pretty accessible. She never needed to spend a lot of money to look good and that’s one of things we really like about her. Anyone with a tiny bit of money can dress like Kate. Since we think the Duchess of Cambridge is one of the most stylish women on the planet, we thought we’d feature a fashion evolution on the beautiful brunette!
Richmond, London – 2006
Kate Middleton looked pretty preppy when she was wandering around Richmond, London back in 2006. She wore a cute beige skirt with a brown sweater over a white blouse. She completed look with a pair of brown suede boots, a pair of brown tights and a little black purse.
She had been dating Prince William for a few years at this point. It was publicly confirmed that these two were an item back in 2004. Since then she had been photographed at various horse races, polo matches and royal engagements alongside her boyfriend. When she wasn’t with William, she was either working for her parents at their party paraphernalia business or was being stalked by the paparazzi. When she received her own security detail in 2006 by the Royalty Protection branch, many assumed that William was going to propose to Kate at any moment; however, it took another four years for him to commit to his university sweetheart.
Chelsea, London – 2007
Kate Middleton was dressed casually when she was seen lugging bags to her car back in 2007. She was wearing a pair of dark blue jeans with a white buttoned top, a black cardigan, an off white blazer and a pair of black suede boots. We miss her old street style. She used to always be photographed wearing these boots – they were one of the staples in her wardrobe.
It was around this time that Prince William broke up with Kate. He was having commitment issues and she was ready to settle down. Prince Charles reportedly told his son that if he wasn’t ready to marry Kate then he should break up with her so that there wouldn’t be another Princess Diana fiasco. It didn’t take long for Will to have second thoughts though. Before the end of the summer was through, these two were back together and more committed than before.
