Want to Dress Like Kate Middleton? There’s an App for That
The Kate’s Style List app for the iPhone allows users to keep track of the Duchess of Cambridge’s hit outfits, find out where to buy them, and more!
Kate Middleton’s sense of style has bewitched the world since she first came on the scene—and now it’s easier than ever to snag her best looks for your very own. Why? There’s an app for that, of course!
Using the brand-new Kate’s Style List app for the iPhone ($0.99, iTunes Store), fans of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wardrobe can click through her many outfits, get details on her favorite pieces (including, naturally, where to get them), and create lists of their own favorites. The app will even update users whenever Kate appears at official engagements. Check out some screenshots here:
The app was created by Helen Barclay, a 28-year-old former actress turned tech-savvy fashionista. “Before I made the app,” Helen recently told the Daily Mail, “I kept seeing [Kate] in magazines and in newspapers, and everywhere she popped up she always looked immaculate and dressed appropriately to the occasion.” This led Helen to model her own style on Kate’s, and when she realized how accessible it was—“She mixes high street with designer so you can find a lot of the things she wears in shops such as Reiss and Zara,” she says—she dreamed up Kate’s Style List and went full steam ahead.
Helen graduated from Hull University with a degree in theatre studies in 2005 and worked both in TV commercials and onstage afterwards. “I’d sort of promised myself that I would give acting a go until I was 30 and then take a step back and decide whether I wanted to carry on,” she revealed to the Daily Mail. “But when I took a break over Christmas last year, I suddenly had the idea for the app while I was out shopping and I’ve not looked back.” And boy, are Kate’s fashion fans glad about that!
You can grab the app for yourself for a mere 99 cents on Apple’s iTunes Store. Happy shopping!
