Does Kate Middleton look like a banana? Prince William thinks so

By: Guest Blogger
Kate-banana-cropped Royal couple scandal! Well, not really. But this is probably as close to scandal as we will ever get with Will and Kate. Kate and William arrived in Sydney today, with Kate wearing a yellow Roksanda Illinic dress.  While greeting the crowds, Kate told an Australian women that William thought her dress made her look like a "banana." This is actually the second time on the royal tour that Kate has expressed William's displeasure with her outfit. Kate wore a green coat by Canadian designer Erdem and William commented that it was a bit "bright." I think it's kind of odd that Kate keeps telling people William's comments about her clothes. In both instances the women were commenting on how lovely Kate looked. So maybe Kate felt uncomfortable with the praise and wanted to downplay it. Or maybe Kate was getting vindication for her outfit choice by telling these women about William's negative comments. Who knows. But I have to say I'm impressed that Kate doesn't let William influence her style, though she does let him influence her hair.You go Kate! I think most women try to achieve a style balance, where you consider what your partner likes you to wear, but still remain true to your style. And Kate's style, at least on this tour, is all about bold colours. I love bright colours and like Kate, wouldn't let a man stop me from wearing them. A break-up might be in order if my boyfriend disliked my pink pants. I think most women, including myself, ignore men's sartorial opinions because they're just wrong. Men either say everything looks great, which is so not true, especially when you're short and busty like me. Or more often than not, they say something looks weird, like a romper or a printed pant. They clearly don't get the latest trends. And that's just too bad because I like how I dress and I'm not going to change. And I'm glad Kate doesn't let William dictate her style either.
