Who would have thought that American socialite Kim Kardashian and the Duchess of Cambridge were friends? Perhaps not friends, but Kim is a huge fan of Kate and has even designed a shoe in honour of the Royal’s birthday.
Kate, who turns 30 this weekend, has fast become a style-icon since her marriage to Prince William last April and designer Kim has admitted that she loves her look, creating ‘The Duchess’ as a tribute to the future queen.
Speaking in a video for ShoeDazzleUK where Kim is chief designer, the reality TV star said: “I just wanted to wish the Duchess of Cambridge a really happy 30th birthday. Her style, I love personally, and I think that every woman should feel like a princess every day.”
The 31-year-old explained she designed the shoe especially for Kate’s regal requirements and is similar to those which the Duchess already wears to events.
It has been a tough few months for the Kourtney and Kim Take New York star, whose whirlwind romance, marriage and divorce to NBA star Kris Humphries has caused much criticism.
2012 has not started well for Kim either as she was accused by model Amber Rose of being a 'homewrecker' and cheating with her then boyfriend Kanye West while Kim was still with now ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush back in 2010.
