Yeah, somehow I don't think the taxpayers would take very kindly to her spending so much money on clothes. (I didn't realize until I started following this topic just how much TRF is still funded by Britain's taxpayers. Ugh! They are obscenely wealthy, they certainly don't need you guys to keep covering their expenses.)

125 of Mario Testino's most iconic photos are currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for the photographer's first ever US exhibit, co-sponsored by Swarovski and Stuart Weitzman. After all, one can amass quite a collection of images over thirty years of photographing celebrities, musicians, models and all things high fashion. The retrospective, entitled "In Your Face" includes some of Testino's more formal sittings, like those of the royal couple Will and Kate, along with exclusive candid party shots and sleek editorial images of faces like Gisele, Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. On editing his life's work into one exhibit, Testino explains, "I came up with the idea and the name of the exhibition 'In Your Face' because I wanted to try and define the essence of Mario Testino. I divided my work into the themes that occurred consistently or what attracted me. From beauty and elegance to sex and nudity...It also represents my life." And what a life it's been. The exhibit runs until June 16, 2013.

I know there is an economical crisis now, but they are for sure not taking that as important as they spend aproximatedly 50 million dollars in their wedding..

I think thats being a big incoherent in spending that amount of money in a wedding and not buying at least a pair of shoes...

Frugality is the key word for those who are sensible in this particular moment in History and Catherine seems to know that very well. If she's going to be queen one day she must keep herself in the good graces of the British people, and she won't accomplish that by wearing a plethora of designer's clothes and different outfits for every hour of the day. She's wiser than that and I personally find it refreshing.
I believe Kate is being more criticized for repeating clothes and for having a bad taste specially when it comes to shoes, rather than being "sensible" with Bristish people because she repeats clothes a lot.

She's not a London It girl, she's part of the Royal Family and it is not her place to work on becoming a fashion icon - she must set an example for her actions, not for the clothes she wears.
If you think she is not a London It girl or a fashion icon, then why does she have a thread? and why does designers get inspired by her? why magazines follow her style everywhere? why do we know she repeats clothes? Let me tell you... because in fact she is a fashion icon now.

Yes, but it generated way more via tourism, pub events, and retail spending. I think they estimated 500 million GBP alone was spent just on Will & Kate-related flags, teacups, ashtrays, pens, etc.

And not that it matters, but I would bet that most of the money went to security for the event, as I know private companies were hired.

I think it's way too soon to call her a fashion icon. For me, she has only had one really memorable look so far - and that's on her wedding day.

I never really liked that Testino shot. It's like he's just said to them "big smiles!"

I know for sure that mayority of the money went for security, but not all, so lets say she at spend some millions on her clothes... I believe is cheaper to buy a pair of shoes honestly..

Maybe for you is too soon to call her an icon, but she is becoming one, as being the inspiration for some designers. I believe trying not to repeat that much will help a lot, if she doesnt she will be criticized more than she is being now..

You are so right. I even believe she is the one who pays for her clothes, not the Royalty.



I actually think that the Testino shot is amazing.. but Kate looks very young in the picture.

i think she actually looks really young nowdays because she got out of her black raccoon make-up hole. and she probably doens't tan that much anymore than she use to. she always looks really fresh faced. i was amazed how great she looked on their asia tour. she didn't look tired at all and they went everywhere and were doing all things all the time.

I'm sure it's partly because of her makeup but the majority is probably from her beauty treatments. She always had circles under her eyes and now they have magically disappeared. Also, look at Camilla, she looks like she's getting younger by the day! I think her spa days are really helping to make her look younger.

Oh, for sure. The royal ladies, excluding the Queen, seem to enjoy some "refreshments".

What a horrible dress! It looks like a bad reject from the 70's. Bad, bad choice.
