Kate Middleton may have made it onto Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed list, and became a fashion icon for millions across the globe, but Kelly Osbourne has made it clear she’s no fan of the new Duchesses’ “thrifty” wardrobe ways.

Just days after lashing out at long-term enemy Christina Aguilera for putting on weight, the acid-tongued Fashion Police star took a swipe at Kate’s penchant for recycling her royal threads when quizzed about the outfit she wore for the wedding of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall.

Explaining to chat show host Jay Leno, Kelly spat “In England they’re like, ‘Look how thrifty she’s being, showing the British public that the royals are in a recession as well. Only in this country, they call it a faux pas.”

And while Kate has been widely praised for mixing and matching her favourite clothing on more than one occasion, 26-year-old singer and TV fashion critic Kelly isn’t impressed by fellow Brit Kate’s spend-savvy styling. “I’m sorry, but if I had that job I would only wear it once” she ranted. “If I am going to be the future Queen of England I’m going to wear that dress once because I’m giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy. At least I can get a new dress every day!”

Now, now, Kelly, calm down. That’s no way to bag yourself an OBE from the Queen – or a spot on Vanity Fair’s next best dressed list. Round one to Kate!
