Kate Middleton is known for... well, totally different things.
Yet we almost mistook one for the other this morning, when Shayk stepped out in London wearing a rather Middleton-esque outfit. While the wrap-dress cut of Irina's frock reminds us of Catherine's Issa engagement dress, the color, length and cinched waist are strikingly similar to the Reiss frock she wore when delivering her first public speech last month.
That the swimsuit model wore her brown hair blown-out like the famous royal and even paired the look with black pumps didn't hurt.
If Irina is aiming for a more proper look, than there's no better fashion example than the ever-elegant duchess. Then again, this is the woman who recently walked the red carpet with her thong showing... we doubt we'll be seeing her in L.K. Bennett heels or a prim fascinator anytime soon.
