Ever wondered what it would be like to walk a mile in the Duchess of Cambridge‘s shoes? Here’s your chance.

Stuart Weitzman has just launched the SW x You: Corkswoon program, which gives royal footwear fans the chance to customize the wedges that Kate made famous.

For $398, customers can choose from a palette of 15 different colors, which includes everything from basic brown to bright shades like geranium and lemon yellow, and decide between a cork or braided jute heel to create their own signature pair (“Copy Kates” can recreate the Duchess’ exact navy-and-cork style) which the company promises will be handcrafted in Spain and delivered to you by the end of July.

Though a press release confirms that the “Corkswoon” campaign is a “direct response to the ‘Kate Effect,'” [in which Duchess-loved apparel sells out the moment she wears it] it’s not the first time Stuart Weitzman has offered shoppers the chance to customize their footwear.

What it is: Being a total fangirl and bringing pictures of your hair idol Duchess Catherine to the blowout bar so you can get her look (pegged to her current Royal Tour hairstyles of course)

Who Tried It: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor

Why She Tried It: Because the only thing that excites me more than this gif of Prince George is Kate’s hair

How crazy is it on a scale from 1 to Ridiculous? If you’re getting one of her looks recreated at a blowout bar, it’s a zero. They’re super easy for any hairstylist to master. If you’re doing it on yourself, I’d say about a 3.5-7.5, all depending on your hair type, and how good you are with a curling iron and bobby pins.

Earlier this year, Diane von Furstenberg celebrated the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress. Now the designer has cause to celebrate again. On Thursday, Duchess Catherine wore the DVF “Patrice” dress when she and Prince William traveled to Australia’s Blue Mountains to visit with residents of an area affected by devastating brushfires last fall.

Unfortunately for those who already have out their credit cards, the Ikat-print cotton dress, which retails for $325, sold out less than 10 minutes after Kate’s appearance, which is not surprising. Read More

No sweats and sneakers for this international traveler! The Duchess of Cambridge spent part of the three-hour flight from Wellington to Sydney changing from a chic blue suit into a sunny yellow dress to kick off the Australian leg of the Royal Tour.

Fashion followers will remember that Kate first wore the ensemble to a reception for the Scott-Amundsen Centenary Race in April 2012. Read More
