If you’ve noticed Kate Middleton is sporting more daring looks lately — see-through panels, leg-baring mullet hemlines —there’s a reason. InStyle UK reports that the Duchess of Cambridge has hired 27-year-old Natasha Archer to style her. “Tash,” as she’s known — because it’s impossible to associate with the royals and not possess a kicky nickname — formerly served as Middleton’s personal assistant. According to their source, “Natasha shops a lot for Kate online, and calls in hundreds of dresses for Kate to try on. She has persuaded Kate to take some more risks. The hemlines are shorter and Kate’s really pushing the boat out in the fashion stakes.” Or, as we say here in America, she’s really working it.
