Fashion designer slates Kate Middleton's style

Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood doesn’t agree that Kate Middleton is one of the most stylish women in the world.

The Duchess of Cambridge was recently commended
in Vanity Fair’s poll of International Best Dressed Women for her down-to-earth wardrobe – but Vivienne isn’t impressed.

‘It seems to me, that her image is “ordinary woman”,’ says Vivienne, 70. ‘Therefore, high street shopper.

‘And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.

‘What not be exceptional? Your clothes communicate something about you.’

And eccentric Vivienne doesn’t think much of Kate‘s make-up, either, which she applied herself for her wedding to Prince William, 29, in April.

‘I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up,’ Vivienne tells The Sunday Times Magazine.

‘The sharp line around her
eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.’
