Looking for the “it girl” of eco-fashion? How about the fairest of them all? Kate Middleton, recently voted one of Vanity Fair’s best dressed of the year, is classing up the elite and cleaning up the planet by recycling her designer wardrobe.
Much to celebrity dismay, Middleton is not decked out in the newest fashions on a daily basis. Middleton has no problem strutting her stuff in last year’s designer dress. Photos of Middleton are showing her recycling habits include mixing and matching the same jackets and shoes with various outfits as well as wearing the same dresses and hats to multiple black tie affairs. Her affinity for a pair of nude heels which she uses as a tasteful finesse for many of her chic royal attires is causing media mayhem and a reason for eco- conscious people to celebrate.
Fellow Brit, Kelly Osborne, spoke disapprovingly of Middleton’s wardrobe on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show saying that if she were Princess she would wear a new dress every day.
I guess we’re lucky it was Middleton to win Prince Williams heart. Middleton has designers offering her countless free outfits for events, but she insists not only on reusing her best outfits but on paying for them. Although elite’s consider it a fashion faux pas, our following of eco-friendly trend setters see it as a step in the right direction. Not only is she setting a fine example for the British monarchy, but for the upper class around the world, and she doesn’t look bad doing it.
