Kate Middleton is admired for her impeccable style, and designers all over the world line up to dress the royal brunette. So it’s no surprise that Kim Kardashian wanted to get a piece of the action during her recent trip to London.
The reality star and her famous sisters recently launched a fashion collection at Dorothy Perkins and reportedly sent the Duchess a load of free clothing, only to get them sent straight back.
According to The Examiner, Kate politely declined to accept any of the free clothing received from the famous reality star.
The Kardashian Kollection features a lot of figure-hugging silhouettes, with leopard print and studs – not exactly appropriate for a member of the Royal family.
A palace insider told the magazine: ‘Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket.’
A spokesperson for the Kardashians denies that clothes were sent to the Duchess and told MailOnline: ‘I confirm. that clothes were not sent to Kate. This is just a rumor that someone wanted to start.’
The Examiner source also claims Kim invited Kate over for tea, in an attempt to get a new royal best friend out of her recent trip to London. But once again, the Duchess politely declined the offer.
A friend close to Miss Kardashian rubbished the claims and told MailOnline: ‘Kim never asked Kate to lunch. She was there (in England) working for a few days.’
And another insider explained to the Daily Star earlier this week why Kim is so keen on getting closer to Kate.
‘She hoped Kate might be seen wearing one of the designs out in public, which would give their fashion credentials a huge boost,’ the source explained.
And a link with the Royal family would have given them the stepping stone they wanted to be big in the UK, the insider continued:
‘The Kardashians want to be as big in the UK as they are in America, and think associating themselves with the Royals, especially Kate will help them achieve that.’
