While according to latest reports, the Duchess of Cambridge is understood to have splurged more than £35,000 on clothes since the beginning of 2012, paid off by her father-in-law Prince Charles [Unlink], Elizabeth Emanuel does not seem to think so.
The designer of Princess Diana [Unlink]’s famous wedding dress, Elizabeth Emanuel believes that Duchess Catherine ought to be admired for her thriftiness and making so-called commoners feel that they too can afford dresses worn by royals.
Speaking to Mandrake of the Daily Telegraph, Emmanuel says that the Duchess has paved the way for a new look Royal by her choice of wardrobe and dress code.
“She wears clothes an ordinary girl can buy and that’s the first time a Royal has really done that, which is brilliant,” declares an appreciative Emanuel.
The 58-year-old designer pooh-poohed critics from the fashion world as being misguided for carping that the Duchess of Cambridge dresses too conventionally or conservatively.
Supporting Duchess Kate’s fashion choices as also approving her style of recycling dresses, Emanuel says: “She doesn’t need to be edgy … Everybody can look at her and go 'I can wear that.’ She’s paving the way for new Royals,” Emanuel adds.
