Does the Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge need a makeover? With Donatella Versace and Twiggy both vouching for Kate Middleton’s fashion icon status and the famous “Kate Effect” making everything she wears sell out– not to mention the countless slideshows dissecting her every perfect outfit – the answer should be no. But it seems that one person disagrees, and that person is the Queen of England.

New reports say that the Queen is ordering Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge to wear longer hemlines, more statement jewelry, brooches and tiaras, and less high street fashion.

The Daily Mail writes that the Queen has charged her own personal dresser, Angela Kelly, with helping Kate prepare her new wardrobe for her upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand with Prince William and Prince George – during which Kate will reportedly wear four outfits a day!

“Angela has been asked to start selecting jewels ahead of the trip,” said a place source.

“She knows most of the pieces in the Queen’s private collection. Her understanding is crucial because this trip will be about Kate appearing more Royal than ever – you can expect to see a lot more tiaras and the Queen will be watching closely.”

Kate still has some input in what she wears, and she’s reportedly approached her favorite designers, including Alexander McQueen and Alice Tempereley, about creating gowns and dresses for her three-and-a-half-week trip.

Kate’s own personal hairdresser, Amanda Cook Tucker, will also be accompanying her on the tour – and she’s just gotten training in “the art of attaching a tiara so that she can style Kate’s hair more formally.” We hope that doesn’t mean we’ll be seeing less of Kate’s perfect curls!
