It’s Angel-ic Kate! With bouncy blow-dries and timeless style, do these uncanny photos prove the Duchess of Cambridge has been inspired by ’70s Charlie’s Angels icon Jaclyn Smith?
Kate Middleton has always been praised for her chic and timeless sense of style.
But could she be taking inspiration from one of the most iconic actresses from the 1970s?
Jaclyn Smith, now 74, turned heads with her glamorous brunette blow-dry and was best known for her starring role in Charlie’s Angels.
And the comparisons between the actress and the Duchess go beyond their tresses, with a striking similarity in their wardrobes.
The style icons both opted for demure looks to accentuate their glowing features, showing how Kate often looks to the past for her inspiration.
Royal hair force: Jaclyn Smith’s tumbling, glossy chestnut locks became her trademark, and it seems they inspired Kate’s look at the Royal Variety Performance last month
Chic to chic: Actress Jaclyn revealed her hairdo took hours of preparation, giant rollers and endless cans of hairspray, and Kate looks equally well-groomed in her sheer lace gown
Casual stripes: The Duchess of Cambridge has long championed the Breton top, and it worked just as well for Jaclyn, who played Kelly Garrett in the show from 1976 to 1981
Frilling: Glossy, bouncing waves of hair are perfectly complemented by frothy ruffles, in 1980 and in 2017
Snow white: Even when they hide those locks, these style icons manage to share a look, hitting the slopes in white woolly hats
Take a bow: Pussybows are framed by their tumbling tresses, whether it’s Jaclyn’s silk blouse in 1976 or Kate’s Alessandra Rich dress last month
All action: Halterneck dresses show off their toned shoulders, though in 2008 Kate was still sporting a straighter hairstyle
