I’m having a really big problem with Vivienne Westwood. Fabulous fashions or not, the woman has pissed me off.

Apparently she’s had a lot of not-so-nice things to say about Kate Middleton‘s choices in fashion. (She told the UK’s Telegraph, “I have to wait until she catches up a bit somewhere with style,” after publicly announcing she wasn’t worthy of a Vivienne Westwood wedding dress. Please… Such bullshit.) But Kate’s fashion sense isn’t the only thing Westwood is knocking. It turns out her makeup isn’t up to par either. According to the Huffington Post, this is what Vivenne Westwood had to say about Kate’s makeup:

“I think she’s got a problem with eye make-up! The sharp line around her eyes makes her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none.”

The Duchess made the choice to do her own makeup for her wedding day, which I think was such a bold and wonderful move: There she was, about to become the future Queen of England, and yet she was humble enough to do her own makeup on her wedding day. Westwood thinks Kate’s image is that of an ‘ordinary woman,’ and that “she should be an extraordinary woman,” but it’s Kate’s unpretentious nature and unmatched grace that makes her extraordinary beyond any of Westwood’s ridiculous standards.

    Great article Teni!! I think it’s admirable that Kate Middleton did her own makeup as well. :DD
