What Happens When Kate Middleton Wears A Brand?
When Kate Middleton wears a brand, it quickly sells out. The resulting fashion and style phenomenon is called “The Kate Effect."
What is style? Put simply, it is the way something--anything--is done. There are innumerable ways of how something can be expressed, designed, or presented. Whenever the term “style” is used, it most commonly refers to one’s fashion or outer appearance.
Style is inevitable; it is not possible to do something without doing it in a particular way. Every style expresses or amplifies an outlook on life, even if this outlook can't quite be put into words. To understand a style, you have to understand something of the mood, philosophy, or aesthetic tendency behind it.
Kate Middleton has been on quite the style journey for over the last years. From the stereotyped looks to the style icon, The Duchess has become since she dazzled the world in Alexander McQueen on her Royal Wedding day.
