Kate Middleton is being publicly criticized the second time in just a week. First, she was slammed by author Hilary Mantel, and now fashion designer Vivienne Westwood is criticizing her.
As we reported, Mantel claimed the Duchess of Cambridge was “plastic,” and lacked personality, but the British Prime Minister quickly came to her defense.
Now, Us Weekly reports that 71-year-old Westwood says Middleton should recycle her outfits more often.
"I don't have any advice for her, [although] I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message," she said.
She went on to say about the pregnant royal, who is actually known for recycling outfits, "If you're going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean, you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next."
This isn’t the first time Westwood has spoken out critically against Middleton. She told London's Sunday Times Magazine about her makeup, “The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none."
