The great debate as to whether Kate Middleton is a style icon continues, and this time it's hitting right to Kate's sole.
Kirkwood, whose designs have been worn by Beyonce and Sarah Jessica Parker, recently told the Daily Beast he doesn't think Kate's shoe style is fit for a princess:
"She just wears too much High Street stuff. I know she’s trying to be democratic, but I don’t know how many pairs of LK Bennett you can wear. She does occasionally come out and is wearing McQueen or something like that. It’s like, ‘Do that more! You’re meant to be a princess-y type of person, so act like one!'"
Sure, Kate could wear Louboutins all day if she wanted to, but somehow we don't think that's Kate's style. Perhaps there are hard feelings, considering Kate has yet to don a pair of the very avant garde shoes Kirkwood is known for.
