Vivienne Westwood Asks Kate Middleton To Recycle Her Wardrobe

Vivienne Westwood had a thing or two to say about the Duchess of Cambridge's style over the weekend. Asked ahead of her Vivienne Westwood Red Label presentation at the Saatchi gallery yesterday if she had any words of wisdom for Kate, the Grand Dame of British fashion replied “I don't have any advice for her, [although] I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message. I mean you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next.”

Kate has often been commended for repeating outfits, but she was also criticised when it emerged that Prince Charles had spent £32,870 on her wardrobe in six months. Vogue Australia also calculated that to be as well groomed as the DoC you'd have to shell out £102,379 a year which includes £7,984 in spray tans and £8645 on hair.

This isn't the first time that Westwood has been drawn into debate about Kate's image. In 2011 she told the Sunday Times magazine “The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.” Jeez, we wouldn't want Viv judging our applied on the back of the bus makeup look in the national press.
