Meet The Woman Behind Kate Middleton’s Style

Shorter hemlines, sheer dresses and ray bans… the Duchess of Cambridge’s style is evolving – and there’s one woman responsible: Natasha Archer.
Meet The Woman Behind Kate Middleton’s Style

The duchess is currently on a royal tour of India and Bhutan with Prince William, and her style choices have been making headlines for all the right reasons.

So far, we’ve seen two sheer dresses by Temperley London, a patterned maxi dress by UK high street brand Glamourous, a bright red McQueen two-piece with an Indian inspired print, some Zara jeans, and an altered dress by Indian designer, Anita Dongre.

As a result, there's been a slight relaxing of the normally rigid, buttoned up style that the Duchess' Royal duties require. On one occasion she was even spotted wearing Ray Bans.

The Duchess' PA-turned-stylist Natasha Archer has been working hard behind the scenes to help the Duchess source looks for the tour.

 

Designer Anita Dongre said that Natasha contacted her a month ago to request clothes for the Duchess. Dongre told The Telegraph, “Her stylist emailed us and and we sent her a look book, then she came in and got some pieces for fittings.” 

Natasha and Kate decided on the ‘Gulrukh’ dress, but decided to give it a royal update. “Her stylist has taken the stole and converted part of that into the belt and then chopped it off so it can be worn as a dress. She’s amazing - it looks easy, breezy and so contemporary,” Dongre said.
