Kate and Pippa Middleton are big Ted Baker fans, and, as is turns out, the feeling is mutual. “Kate’s lovely,” Ted’s founder Ray Kelvin told InStyle.com at the housewarming party for the British brand’s soon-to-open Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York. “She’s so nice, and she wears such beautiful clothes. And she, like Pippa, likes to keep things understated.” No wonder both girls looked so classically chic in the brand’s blue trenches. The Duchess wore hers during her Canadian tour last summer, while Pippa chose her cobalt trench to run errands in London in December. The trench is a constant in all Ted Baker collections; shop for one of your own at tedbaker.com.
