This 21 Years Old Kate Middleton Look alike Has Spent $3,000 to Copy Kate’s Clothes


 

 

Carter News undefined Critics accuse Kate Middleton of having the world’s most boring style, but the Duchess of Cambridge still has an army of fans who follow her every outfit rewear religiously and immediately scoop up any off-the-rack look that’s available to buy.

Count 21-year-old Amanda Bell among those devotees. The Los Angeles resident, who works in customer service, has spent the past four years copying Kate’s wardrobe, and has spent over $3,000 (around £2,120) dressing like Kate.

“I love recreating Kate’s look,” Bell said. “My style has always been very similar to hers so it just seemed natural to me.” Bell’s physical resemblance to Kate helps too, and she blows out her long brown hair in a similar way.

Bell stays on top of wait lists so that she can snap up popular items that sell out quickly (though she’s not always successful), or buys cheaper copy-Kate versions of custom, pricier pieces. Here’s a look at some of the outfits Bell has in her closet:

The dress that started it all! Kate wore a blue wrap dress by Issa London (currently available online for $818 – around £580) when she and Prince William formally announced their engagement on Nov. 16, 2010. It was the first time Kate showed off her sapphire engagement ring that once belonged to Princess Diana.

Caters News On May 1, 2011, the day after her wedding, Kate left Buckingham Palace wearing a polyester Zara dress that cost $90 (around £65). She wore it with black espadrilles from L.K. Bennett and a black jacket.

Kate first wore this linen check-print dress by Hobbs on July 26, 2012, and wore it again while touring Australia with Will in 2014. The brand periodically releases the design in different colours, but it looks like Bell got the original.

Kate wore a custom dress by Jenny Packham when she left the hospital after giving birth to Princess Charlotte, but Bell looks to have found a pretty convincing copy of the pretty floral sheath.

This flowing patterned dress by Anita Dongre was longer when it was shown originally on the runway, but Kate’s stylist had the dress shortened and belted at the waist, which is how the designer is now selling the $236 (around £170) dress.

Kate Middleton’s style file

Kate made her debut to the Royal Ascot 2016 on June 15, 2016 in this amazing white lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana for £3,450. This outfit is same as the one she wore to the Windsor Horse Race last month with a red Zara jacket. She completed her look with a matching Jane Taylor hat, nude heels and clutch.
