Karl Lagerfeld and Valentino Share Their Thoughts on Kate Middleton

Love her in a hat. Can she make THAT catch on?

Kate Middleton has hardly done much clothes wearing before her adoring public, yet she has already been labeled "a designer's dream" and a "fashion icon" by a plethora of morning television-show hosts and mid-morning television-show talking heads. But the great designers of our time will see about that. Valentino?


“She has to do something with this long hair because that is very important,” the retired designer ... opined. “To be a future queen, she can’t keep her hair this long.”

Over to Karl Lagerfeld?


"For the royals, apparently the royal blood is not in demand any longer ... Better for the generation to come ... She is very different from Princess Diana, and seems a very well-balanced and a happy person. She is chic in a way the position needs. Let's wait and see."

He added that Middleton looks "like a younger sister" to Crown Princess Mary of Denmark and called her "beautiful and elegant." So. Kate Middleton WINS. But you knew that.
