This Girl Jumps Through Hoops Just to Copy Kate Middleton's Outfits
Kate Middleton's biggest fashion fan isn't a member of the royal court, and we can't believe we're saying this, but it isn't us either — we just admire her looks from afar. In fact, it's Amanda Bell, a 21-year-old girl living in LA with a penchant for sophisticated dresses and an admiration for the way Kate pulls them off.
Amanda has admitted to spending roughly $2,250 scooping up copies of Kate's most iconic dresses, though there are times she'll splurge on a real designer item. Take the Anita Dongre dress Kate wore on the royal tour of India and Bhutan. Amanda paid $380 for the genuine piece and has already deemed it her favorite one.
While Amanda's hobby started in 2012 when she first laid eyes on Kate's engagement dress, we don't think she'll quit anytime soon. In fact, she's still on the waiting list for the L.K. Bennett number the duchess wore when the Obamas visited Kensington Palace.
Read on to see how much attention Amanda pays to detail, re-creating Kate's looks one by one, and compare them to the original version. She might just make you do a double take.
