• Rose McGowan and Kate Middleton have the same taste in Issa dresses. McGowan said, “I wore [the label’s] bright green gown to the MOCA and then Kate Middleton wore the blue one to announce her engagement to, you know, the Prince … But I don’t wear funny hats. And she probably doesn’t wear five-inch heels.” [InStyle]
