In just under a year, Kate Urbanksa has transformed her wardrobe to almost fully resemble Kate Middleton, at a fraction of the cost. But instead of resorting to "high-street replicas" to be her lookalike, the young girl likes to buy "the exact high-end outfit the princess wore," but that doesn’t mean a high-end price tag.
"I'm always looking for bargains," Urbanksa told Daily Mail, adding that she checks eBay and online auctions daily. "It doesn't matter whether I'm on the bus or waiting in line for something, whenever I have a spare moment, I'm always checking the different sites."
Urbanska is a beautician and lives in Berkshire, UK, and first fell for Kate's style before she was even royalty. A photo of her wearing a blue dress from high-street retailer Zara in 2011 was the catalyst for her new-found fascination.
The Duchess of Cambridge's influence was immediately felt, as according to The Sun, Urbanska rushed to her local Zara as soon as she saw the photo to buy the dress — and even splashed out nearly $500 on the exact same wedge heels!
"There was something about the Duchess’ style that instantly struck a chord," Urbanska said. "Her look is modest, timeless, and so different compared to other celebrities nowadays."
A designer price tag doesn’t stop the fan from getting her hands on the same piece as Prince William's wife. Along with eBay, Urbanska relies on seasonal sales, Etsy, and tailors to custom make items for her.
Urbanska has also replicated Kate's maternity outfits, even though she wasn't pregnant herself. Her desire to replicate as much of the mom of two's looks as possible even extends to beauty and makeup.
"I love The Duchess' clothes of course, but I would be lying if I said I hadn't tried her skincare routine too," she told Daily Mail.
"I'm a natural long-haired brunette," Urbanska added, but that’s not where the similarities end. She purchased the Karin Herzog Oxygen Face Cream, rumored to be a favorite of Kate's, and even got her hands on a lipstick in Sandwash Pink and the Shimmer Brick bronzer, both by Bobbi Brown, which are both said to be a favorite of the royal.
Urbanska is documenting her fashion adventures on Instagram, but no word yet from the Palace about what they think of her copycat skills.
