Ever since Carolyn died, I’ve looked for another fashion muse for inspiration. I’ve never found one that has come close. I enjoy reading about Kate, er, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, but have never really liked her style for the most part. I know it’s because she’s in a vastly different position than Carolyn was in and has to dress very formally. If she wasn’t a royal, I think she’d be a little more freewheeling.
Anyway, when I came across Kate in that cream dress she recently wore, just for a second Carolyn flashed through my brain. The dresses aren’t really similar except in color, length and the slit, but something about Kate just reminded me of Carolyn that day. She looked very glamorous and much less stuffy! Despite the drastic differences in coloring, she and Carolyn have/had a very similar build and stature with lustrous, thick hair, and they both can/could light up a room with that smile.
I made a small collage comparing the two gowns. Kate looks good, don’t you think?
