Olivia Palermo admires Duchess Catherine’s sense of style

Washington: Olivia Palermo has revealed that she is a big admirer of Duchess Catherine’s “timeless” sense of style and thinks she is boosting British designers.

The former ‘City’ star is particularly appreciative of the way the Royal champions UK talent, both established and emerging.

“The duchess is a wonderful role model. She has her own sense of timeless style and it’s lovely to see her wear some of Britain’s most well-respected talent, such as Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, and also bring awareness to younger brands like Erdem, who brings such an elegance and femininity to his designs,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Hello! Magazine.

The 30-year-old actress also stated that the Duchess is one of just a few famous faces whose style she admires as she feels most people in the public eye rely too much on being styled by other people.

“I find I look less to celebrities and more at models for being more fashion forward. Models usually dress themselves whereas a celeb might have a helping hand,” she added.
