Kate Middleton has less fashion power than Kim Kardashian, according to Roland Mouret.

The French fashion designer, who’s dressed both The Duchess of Cambridge and the Keeping up with the Kardashians star, said that people want to look more like Kim Kardashian.

“You don't see hundreds of women running around looking like Kate,” he told Vogue magazine.

"The kind of people who like Kate's style are not the kind to rush out and copy her dress. To be honest, we're more likely to get orders on a dress that Kim Kardashian's worn."

Roland Mouret, who created the famous Galaxy dress, added that the Duchess of Cambridge dresses for herself and William and not to create tabloid frenzy.

"She's highly attuned to those details that will provoke a tabloid frenzy, and above all, she does not want a tabloid frenzy,” added the 51-year-old designer.

"She doesn't seem to feel the need to dress sexily to woo the world. She's dressing for William and herself. She doesn't want a bottom situation like Pippa had," he said.
