According to Roland Mouret, the French designer behind Kate Middletonâs leg-flashing, elegant white dress, which she wore for a fancy dinner at Claridgeâs in 2012, said the Telegraph that, Kate Middleton only dresses to impress her husband, Prince William and no one else.
Roland said, âSheâs highly attuned to those details that will provoke a tabloid frenzy and above all, she does not want a tabloid frenzy. She doesnât seem to feel the need to dress sexily to woo the world. Sheâs dressing for William and herself.â
In fact, the Duchess also requested to alter the dress to fit loosely, as she didnât want the attention her sister, Pippa Middleton got during her wedding in 2011. He said, âShe doesnât want a bottom situation like Pippa had.â
Talking of bottom situations of celebrities, Roland also compared Kate with fellow celebrity, Kim Kardashian, who is also pregnant, admitting that Kim has more selling power than Kate.
âYou donât see hundreds of women running around looking like Kate Middleton. To be honest, weâre more likely to get orders on a dress that Kim Kardashianâs worn,â he added.
