Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian are two high profile public figures for extremely different reasons, yet both have little ones that are constantly in the spotlight.
It isn’t enough that the fashionista tendencies of these two women is compared; now it’s time to note the vast differences between the manner in which they style their youngsters and draw on the trends that have been set all due to the ladies’ status along with impressionable and constant watchful fans and onlookers.
When it comes to Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s little one North West, this little cutie is brought out to events looking like her aunt Kendall, ready to step out onto the runway. New York Daily News indicates that Kim K along with other high-profile ladies on the scene today, have been instrumental in furthering the couture trend on toddlers after speaking with the main English designer who is responsible for making many of Kate Middleton’s tots’ clothing. Designer for royalty, Rachel Riley, notes that the trend is “led by Kardashian and the likes of Gwen Stefani and Victoria Beckham — dressing tots like they’re being dropped off at a Vogue shoot, not preschool.”
Kate Middleton’s go-to children’s clothes designer has a distinctive view on trends led by the likes of Kim Kardashian and additional fashion-forward moms mentioned. NY Daily relays the designers words on the subject.
“For me, children don’t need to stay up with the fashions because fashion is mostly about sexual attractiveness. What you do need is to be comfortable and be age-appropriate. I think it’s nice when children retain the innocence of childhood for as long as possible.”
It seems that Kate Middleton and Prince William are in total agreement with Riley, as it is clear that the duds most commonly worn by Prince George and Princess Charlotte are traditional, well-made and even have a more vintage quality to them. Middleton has even been commended for inspiring a trend in children’s fashion based on the vintage style, according to Daily Mail UK.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye, on the other hand, prefer to dress little North in “runway-ready Balmain leather jackets” and clothing that has more of a mature and edgier look, yet likely is not entirely comfortable for the sand pit at the park. The pair is known for seeking to get a reaction-Kim’s recent nude pregnancy photo is a representation of this- while Kate and Prince William prefer practicality and privacy when allowed it.Their children’s clothing is somewhat reflective of the two couple’s attitudes and priorities.
