Kate Middleton Not Considered A Trendsetter?

It’s not easy being Kate Middleton and having others constantly judge you. Especially when you’re often being compared to the late Princess Diana.

And although many love Kate’s style, others are saying she’s really not a trendsetter like Diana, but more of a follower.

According to new reports, fashion experts agree that Miz Middleton isn’t much of a style guru.

Elle’s Fashion News Director reveals:

“Is she a style icon of the likes of a Kate Moss? Absolutely not. Is she in the public eye? Are people going to become obsessed with everything she wears regardless of what it is? Yes.”

With a Fashion Direction at Nordstrom’s adding:

"She is stylish, but she's not setting trends, she's following trends. If you take Kate out of the royal family, put her on a street in New York, you wouldn't look at her twice. She's a beautiful woman, but she blends into a crowd.”

A Neiman Marcus Fashion Director added:

"Is she iconic at the moment? Time will tell. She's certainly influential. In the position that she's in you can't be simply stunning as she is and not have influence.”

What do U think of Kate's style?

Model Clarifies Her Comments About SJP

Model Emily Sandberg returned to her blog on Tuesday to clarify some of the things she said in her "Sarah Jessica Parker is not a style icon" piece.

She writes:

A friend sent me a photo of one of my covers next to SJP's Vogue cover this month. I think it's a good illustration of the difference between fashion and Hollywood. One needs major advertisement and intrigue to sell it. The other uses only an image.

Daring? I don't think so, Italian Vogue is still the reigning magazine in fashion. US Vogue became akin to US Weekly, a magazine driven by the advertising dollar instead of the creative influencers.

I told my friend, "You know, I've been wanting to write a blog post about her brand for some time. First with Gap and then with Halston. I think now I have to. Enough is enough. Someone has to call this out."

It's not that I don't like SJP. I think she's not only talented but incredibly intelligent and beautiful. What I don't like is her brand. And her brand to me is this: SJP+SATC=Money for SJP. And here's my problem with it.

1. it adds little of substance to the table beyond a product
2. it says little about fashion beyond a trend
3. it does little more than make money for her brand and the brands SJP aligns herself with
4. I don't take kindly to blatant self-promotion, it's no better than some of our reality TV friends and I think US Vogue and SJP is capable of so much more

And why does this bother me? Well… I don't know about you but I don't like money being the all powerful motivating factor for what people pay attention in our society today. I wish it was the talent because there are so many gifted, talented, deeply creative people that could do amazing work given the opportunity.

Instead what we have is an industry, that over the last 10+ years has gone the way of Hollywood and decided to put their faith and trust and branding in the hands of those who have money instead of the those who have the ability to create fashion.

I could have written the same post about Blake Lively or Lauren Conrad. It just so happens, SJP was on the cover this month.

One last thing I feel necessary to address. I'm a model. If you're interested in the work I've done, you'll have to dig. I don't have a website. I don't have a fan page. I don't have a team of PR people gathering and submitting to the press every move I make. Call me old fashioned but I'm not interested in you knowing my name because I'm a beautiful face representing a brand for a season or on the cover of a magazine. If you know my name, it's because we've met. We've had a conversation. We've exchanged ideas.

Fame is something you can purchase so easily today. I'm not interested in being famous. I'm interested in developing a conversation.

She makes a lot of great points, but the reality is we live in a celebrity obsessed culture and they sell. How many people in the US would buy a magazine with a non-household name model like Gisele or Kate Moss?

If we had to guess, not many.

And as we all know, Anna Wintour is more about the business of Vogue, not the fashion.
