Any Fashion Week wardrobe essentials?

Tell us about your blog, Samantha on Style.
“I like to focus on the intersection of fashion and politics as well as runway style from different Fashion Weeks. I write a lot about Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton.”

Do you think Kate Middleton has the chops to be a fashion icon?
“I think she’s getting there. Her outfits are really spot-on for what her role is. I think she has a very classic, attractive style.”

How does she compare to Princess Diana?
“Kate’s not as flashy, which might be a good thing.”

Brooke says:
I recently went to a blogger and press event for the Accessorize store in Union Station. I was totally jealous of this fellow blogger’s leopard-print coat and the cool contrast of her dainty pearls and tough ankle boots.
