There's an interesting article about Kate Middleton on ABC News' site today. It seems she's taking a lot of heat for wearing the same pieces of clothing over and over again, and critics are also tired of her hair and eye makeup.
I've been beating the "no black eyeliner" drum for months, thank you very much, and I definitely agree that it makes her look hard. She's a beautiful woman, but not many girls can rock the Cleopatra look. Snooki can, because she has large eyes (and, well, she's Snooki), but Kate can't, and she needs to listen to those who only have her best interests at heart. Interestingly, Kate's mother and sister also line their eyes entirely, so I see a family fashion intervention in the works.
I do personally like that the Duchess recycles her outfits, because that's what real girls do, and she certainly seems like the genuine article. Plus, she's on Vanity Fair's Best Dressed List, and that's no small accomplishment.
And I seem to remember another famous Princess who had a hard time parting ways with her eyeliner, though, back then, it was blue, not black.
Let's give poor Kate time to learn the error of her ways as she adjusts to life as a member of the Royal family. I, for one, wouldn't want to be in her shoes, even if they are really cute and affordable.
