Vivienne Westwood slams Kate Middleton

2011-08-10 12:32
London - Dame Vivienne Westwood has claimed Britain's Duchess Catherine has a "problem" with her eye make-up.

The fashion designer isn't a huge fan of the 29-year-old royal's look and thinks she wears too much eyeliner, while her fashion style is "ordinary".

She told the Sunday Times Style magazine: "I think she's got a problem with eye make-up. The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.

"It seems to me, that her image is 'ordinary woman'. Therefore, High Street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from."

Sentiments echoed

It seems experts in the beauty world agree with Vivienne's take on Catherine's eye make-up.

Celebrity make-up artist Rachel Wood - who has worked with Holly Willoughby, Olivia Palermo and Lily Cole - said: "Kate is lucky - she has beautiful skin and a pretty face. She is one of the lucky kind of girls that can slip through on the not-so-perfect make-up front, but I do feel her eyeliner is a little dated and harsh for her beautiful eyes.

"I'd love to see her with a strong and classic liquid on top and take her hard black pencil on the bottom and soften and smoke it out. I would also love to give her a little more mascara."

When she married Prince William in April, the duchess famously did her own make-up because she wanted to look like her normal self.
