Anna Wintour praises Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's holiday style

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Anna Wintour is a big fan of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's "impeccable" holiday outfits.

The fashion journalist, who has served as editor-in-chief of U.S. Vogue since 1988, is one of the most important figures in the industry.

But while Anna rarely comments on celebrity style, in an interview for her Go Ask Anna video series, she singled out the British royal's festive wardrobe as a good example of how to dress for Christmas events.

"I don't think you can go wrong with the Duchess of Cambridge, who always looks impeccable," she shared. "I think right now, when we are thinking about stars who are a little bit more classic and have a heritage feeling, when you look at what she wears when she goes to church - it could be a Catherine Walker dark red princess coat, or when she has to go out at night with her husband (Prince William), something a little more glamorous like (an Alexander) McQueen - but she always looks absolutely impeccable."

Elsewhere in the interview, Anna was asked about the trend for gifting experiences rather than conventional presents. She noted that she was right onboard with the trend for non-gifts and insisted it's hard to go wrong with tickets to a show.

"Two things to think about for a non-gift are theatre tickets for somebody who really enjoys going to the theatre or to a musical or to dance. An evening that they can truly enjoy and (will also make them) think of you. And if they're not so much into going to Broadway or Off-Broadway, I would recommend, if you can possibly arrange it, a tour of an exhibition that they will be interested in seeing, hopefully, given by a curator or somebody who has real knowledge," the 70-year-old advised.
