Dame Viv versus K-Midds

Dame Vivienne Westwood has risked incurring the wrath of the Royals by daring to criticise Kate Middleton. The grande dame of punk has singled out K-Midds for a fairly odd reason; she doesn't like the Duchess's method of applying eye make-up. Admittedly, Kate's penchant for dark eyeliner is a little 80's, but y'know, what with hacking and now rioting, perhaps she has bigger fish to fry?

Dame Viv told The Daily Mail, 'I think she's got a problem with eye make-up. The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none. It seems to me, that her image is 'ordinary woman'. Therefore, High Street shopper. And I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.'

Celeb make-up artist Rachel Wood agreed, saying, 'I'd love to see her with a strong and classic liquid on top and take her favoured hard black pencil on the bottom and soften and smoke it out. I would also love to give her a little more mascara. If she prefers to keep the black liner she so loves to wear on the top line, I would love to add a touch of a smoky shadow to open and soften her eyes. This way she is keeping the colour she feels comfortable using, but giving it a much needed update and softer finish.'

We're sure Kate's awfully grateful for your advice, ladies...
