The Duchess of Cambridge’s gorgeous dresses and street fashion savvy were emulated by a British woman. It’s not uncommon for matches of Kate Middleton’s dresses to sell out in minutes, but one woman has decided to devote a large portion of her salary to copying Kate’s look. Eleanor Jayne, 30, is an investment manager and has been copying the style of the Duchess of Cambridge for five years.
The mom of one, who lives in Cambridge with her 35-year-old husband and son Freddie, is a so-called “Repli-Kate”.
A ‘Repli-Kate’ is the nickname given to super fans of the Duchess of who share their obsession with her online.
Speaking to The Sun, Ms Jayne said she “spent £ 3,000 to copy Kate Middleton’s style”.
The British woman added: “I trawl eBay for hours to find her sold-out looks.”
Mrs. Jayne added: “I’ve always been a huge Kate Middleton fan.
“This is because it wears and dresses very well.
“It also does a good job of pairing designer clothes with couture fashion, which I really like.
“When I started working in the financial sector ten years ago, there wasn’t much inspiration for women’s dresses in a formal office job.

Eleanor added: “Most of my dresses are inspired by her.
“I’ll be alerting thrift stores for ‘blue midi dress, Coast’ or whatever you’re wearing.
“eBay, Vinted and Vestiaire are my favorite sites.
“Vestiaire sells second-hand designer clothes and it’s good because it covers many different countries.
“In England, Kate’s clothes sell out quickly, but sometimes they are a little slower overseas, which means I can have them shipped from countries like France.
“Ever since Kate started getting a bouncy twist, I’ve copied it too.
“That’s how me and all my friends do our hair now.”
The Duchess of Cambridge turned 40 on Sunday.
