British Vogue editor discusses Kate Middleton as see-through dress reaches £78,000

British Vogue editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman comments on Kate Middleton. This is one of the few intelligent commentaries on Middleton’s fashion, taking a bigger-picture view than the usual tabloid reporting on William and Kate.
   Shulman discusses the nature of fame and how the public looks for new people who can be in the limelight, in the context of the fashion world.
   She believes Middleton will be good for the British fashion industry and expects it to be represented at the Royal Wedding. Shulman accepts that Middleton’s choices affect the sales of certain brands.
   Her concern, at least for the industry, is that Middleton does not appear keen on being a ‘fashion personality’ and that fashion is not a priority.
   The segment is interspersed with images of Middleton’s famous 2002 see-through dress, designed by Charlotte Todd, which reportedly caught the eye of HRH Prince William.
   The dress has been auctioned by Kerry Taylor Auctions, reaching a price of £78,000 including commission. A Jersey buyer made the winning bid.
   Designer Todd says the proceeds will go toward buying a house with her husband, according to Reuter.
