The duchess has new clothes!
Seeing as Kate Middleton is shying away from wearing maternity clothes—not unlike Kim Kardashian —Donna Karan, Nanette Lepore, Nicole Miller, Lela Rose, Nina Ricci and Vera Wang were tasked with sketching maternity wear suitable for royalty. Though she’s nearly seven months pregnant, the first time we spotted Middleton in anything maternity-like was at the end of April when she wore a custom eggshell-blue dress that The Daily Mail described as “dangerously low.”
If Karl Lagerfeld, one of the designers WWD reached out to, had his way, Middleton would wear “dangerously low” cut dresses all the time. His sketch reads “proud to be pregnant” showcasing a dress is wealth of cleavage with a high collar and embellishments at the waist, wrist and hemline, which looks to have a high-low hem situation.
“I think this dress is very much in her taste,” he said. Well, the Kaiser has spoken.
