Kate Middleton Style Tracker: Duchess of Cambridge Gets iPhone App "Kate's Style List"
If you've ever admired Kate Middleton's effortless fashion sense, you can now follow her style with the smartphone app "Kate's Style List."
The app tracks every outfit that the British royal has worn and where she wore it. It also allows her fashion followers to find out the designer of the piece and where they can buy it. Gone are the days of endless Googling in efforts to find out where the Duchess got her adorable shoes.
Former actress Helen Barclay, who is a fan of Middleton's style, came up with the innovative fashion tool last Christmas after realizing how accessible the Duchess' style picks really are.
The 28-year-old actress told the Daily Mail newspaper, "She mixes high street with designer so you can find a lot of the things she wears in shops such as Reiss and Zara."
The obsessed fashionista has given up her acting career to concentrate on perfecting the app. ""I love what I do now. Before I made the app, I kept seeing her in magazines and in newspapers, and everywhere she popped up she always looked immaculate and dressed appropriately to the occasion. I model my own style on Kate's. I love her jean and jacket combos matched with little chiffon shirts, which is the kind of thing I wear all the time." She added, "I spend a lot of my time trawling fashion websites and looking at the designers' shows online so that I can identify her pieces. I also follow a lot of fashion writers on twitter so I know what Kate will be wearing when she next appears.''
"Kate's Style List" users can click through the Duchess' favorite pieces and create lists of their own favorites. The app also permits them to do in-depth searches on accessories and other items.
The app has been a hit, especially in the U.S. Thousands of fans have already downloaded the style tool.
During London's Summer Olympics, Middleton stole the spotlight from the athletes with her Olympic gold style. The Duchess wore her most casual ensemble during the passing of the torch flame at Buckingham Palace. The beautiful brunette wore royal blue denim pants and Team GB Adidas polo - a perfect and chic outfit. When she attended the swimming matches, she executed one of her most adorable preppy looks. She wore a black and white polka dot top with a bold red Zara blazer and a pair of black skinny jeans.
Middleton's style sense has been glorified in the fashion industry. Vanity Fair named the Duchess, along with her wild brother-in-law Prince Harry, one of the best-dressed icons in the world. She graced the magazine's September issue with her gleaming smile. Vanity Fair reported that Middleton's father-in-law Prince Charles spent an estimated $55,000 on designer clothes for her grand wardrobe. However, the organic fashionista declined the services of a royal dresser. She selects her own looks wearing different styles, designers, and brands without any discrimination. Middleton is usually spotted in accessible brands like LK Bennett, Reiss and Whistles. She also has a fine taste for designers like Alexander McQueen and Alice Temperley.
The Duchess is officially the most stylish person in the world. Who else has a outfit tracker?
