Steal their style: Kate Middleton and Katy Perry

25 NOVEMBER 2013 The world can't stop talking about the two Kates. Neither Katy Perry, nor the Duchess of Cambridge, can step outside without the media evaluating everything from their shoes to their hairstyles.

However, apart from this the two are very different, especially when it comes to their styles. While George's mum works a classic look that's fit for royalty – usually opting for nudes and nautical stripes, Katy Perry rocks a quirkier more sassy style.

Whichever Kate is your number one style icon, we’ll show you how to emulate her look with ease.

It’s easy to see why Kate is such an icon with her timeless style that incorporates both high end and high street items. Like her favourite pair of shoes, nude LK Bennett pumps which she teams with many of her beautifully cut dresses.

A favoured label of the princess is the ever on trend Brit name, Alexander McQueen, and she choose a red dress from the collection for the Diamond Jubilee festivities and, most recently, a cream ensemble for the Christening of her son, Prince George.

Whilst pregnant however the Duchess proved she is indeed a high street girl at heart, stepping out in an ASOS blue maternity dress, priced at just £17.50.

Style Staples: Bootcut jeans, bretton stripes, nude pumps, classic dresses.

In comparison Katy Perry's style is more edgy, but is equally as wearable. 

Mixing designer pieces with vintage finds, she is rarely seen without her Chanel quilted bag when out and about.

Katy is very versatile with her style. She is often seen sporting sparkly and daring outfits on the red carpet but looks equally as comfortable wearing jeans and a top on her day off.

If you are looking to recreate Katy's look you are probably a bit daring by nature, but for a toned down version you can simply add some bold statement accessories to your outfit as a nod to the quirky starlet. Think neon bangles, chunky statement necklaces and kitsch accessories.

Style Staples: Sparkle and colour, figure hugging styles, retro pin-up, classic Chanel handbag.

Both Katy and Kate have very unique styles but each have old faithful pieces that stick with them time and time again.

If you want to copy either Kate’s LK Bennetts or Katy's Chanel bag then you’ll have some serious saving to do, as investment pieces aren't cheap. Alternatively, paying bit by bit can make classic pieces more affordable. Check your credit with a company like Experian CreditExpert and work out if you can afford to splash out a little in the name of fashion.

Most people don't have a stylist to hand for every event and occasion, but borrowing ideas from celebs is a great way of getting a high fashion look – whether you prefer the style of classic Kate or quirky Katy.
