To millions across the globe, both Kate Middleton and Cheryl Cole are two of the most well known fashion icons and have literally millions of fans all over the world; however, Mary Portas, star of Mary Queen of Shops, has revealed this week that she wholeheartedly disagrees with the opinion that they queens of style. The former fashion advisor has recently went mainstream herself and has already starred in two reality programs detailing her fashion experiences and advice.
The outspoken American has launched an attack on the assumption that the Duchess of Cambridge and world superstar Cheryl Cole should be regarded as fashion icons. Portas especially went after Cole following her debut on the US version of X Factor. She suggested that what Cole wore that night was ‘really wrong’ and that her massive hair was fundamentally an incorrect look for Cole who has a small body and only stands at 5 foot 3 inches.
Portas was somewhat more respectful towards Kate Middleton who married Prince William in April of this year. While, Portas admitted, Kate has done a great job globally in her responsibilities and duties as part of the British royal family; she doesn’t understand how the 29 year old Duchess is regarded as a style icon for millions around the world. Portas, however, did not expand greatly in regards to Middleton although it is clear that she doesn’t think much of her dress sense or that she is bringing anything new and exciting to the world of fashion.
