The Duchess of Cambridge immortalized in $50 shirt

The Duchess of Cambridge immortalized in $50 shirt


Art critics – largely scaling the “dislike” range regarding the Duchess of Cambridge’s official portrait – had much more to say about the impending iconic image than commenting on her sleeveless blouse.

Leave it to fashion to figure out the exact article of clothing Kate Middleton was wearing when she was immortalized in her painting. As we all know, the mum-to-be enjoys a good sale. In May, the Duchess was spotted perusing the sale rack at the French Connection store in London which is where she may have picked up the said item in her portrait - the Sub Silky Tie Top from French Connection, a navy-colored, polyester sleeveless blouse, that's still on sale for $49.99!

Get it quick. Despite your personal opinions over the context of the portrait itself, if the Duchess has it, the world wants it. (More from Grazia)


What do you think of Duchess Kate's portrait?
Eh, undecided
