Cecile Reinaud was interviewed alongside other celebrity stylists and royal fashion experts to give her insights for ITVBe’s exclusive new documentary, Kate’s Wardrobe Secrets.
Speaking from the Seraphine head office in Notting Hill, Cecile opened up about what it was like to dress the Duchess through her pregnancy, sharing her memories of the day that those beautiful first official pictures with Prince George were released – The Duchess smiling and looking utterly radiant in our signature knotted dress.
Here at Seraphine, we are known for dressing all the top Hollywood celebrities through their pregnancies – everyone from Gwen Stefani, Anne Hathaway and Mila Kunis to Kate Winslet, Jessica Alba and Marion Cotillard are fans of our maternity clothes. But none of these stars has anything like the same selling power as the Duchess. Cecile shares her insights as to why this might be:
“Kate is an icon – she’s almost like a myth, so everybody wants a little piece of that Princess fairy tale. By buying what she’s wearing, you get that fairy tale in your wardrobe, and I think that is why the Kate effect is so strong and unparalleled by any other celebrities.”
The Duchess of Cambridge invested in Seraphine styles several times throughout both of her pregnancies, choosing flattering summer maternity dresses while she was expecting Prince George, and classic maternity coats through her winter pregnancy with Princess Charlotte. The Marina Maternity Coat was a particular favourite of hers, which she chose for her iconic arrival in New York on the royal couple’s first official visit to the States.
