" OMG is that Kate Middleton?! "
Yesterday afternoon, the sun made an appearance, so I decided to make the most of it. Armed with the July issue of Marie Claire, I took to my garden to soak up some rays. After reading the fashion section and scanning through an article on Whitney Houston, I came to an article with the headline 'The Princess Diaries'. Behind the title was a picture of Kate and Pippa, so I settled down for a few minutes of royal gossip ( I do love a bit of goss)! But, oh how I couldnt have been more wrong! The article was actually about the lows and highs of being a Kate Middleton look alike and the difficult lives they lead: trying to keep up with Kate's newest hairstyle, dress or weight. As it turns out, since the royal wedding Kate look alikes have been popping up left right and centre: on one agencies books there are 90 Kate look alikes, so it's tricky to nab the topspot. In the photo of the supposed Kate look alikes only one or two actually could be likened to her. It seems almost cruel that these girls think they are in with a chance at becoming 'the best Kate' when the only similiar feature they share with her is hair colour. The old favourite 'Kate' has now been replaced, she said : 'The problem is I'm getting fatter and Kate's getting thinner!', I felt so sorry for her, she quit her job and everything, See how bad it is! And the worst part? People are getting taken in by it, when seen in the street the look alikes are flocked by followers taking pictures on their phones, it's just ridiculous! At first I wasn't sure what to make of the whole thing, but now I hate it. It's awful that girls are getting paid just for looking like someone else. It must be so easy for them to forget who they are, because they're so caught up in pretending to be someone else. What do you think?
