Throughout their trip, they dressed perfectly for each occasion. But Kate wasn&#39;t prepared for one thing: the Canadian wind. Just minutes after arriving in Calgary, Canada, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were greeted by gusts of wind that blew up Kate&#39;s dress and gave her the &quot;Marilyn Monroe effect.&quot;</p> <p> <strong><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/internal/gallery/5670163">LA kiss</a></strong></p> <p> They wrapped up their trip with a visit to Los Angeles, Calif., where they rubbed elbows with celebrities and wrapped their arms around the inner city youth, taking in a full range of life in California.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, may not be what many in the fashion world consider &quot;fashion forward.&quot; However, even without the fashion moniker, she has single handedly breathed life into brands like Jenny Packham and Temperly. She is even credited with the return of pantyhose.&nbsp;</p> <p> According to the <a href="http://www.languagemonitor.com/">annual analysis by the Global Language Monitor (GLM</a><a href="http://www.languagemonitor.com/">)</a>, the term &quot;The Duchess Effect&quot; is sitting atop the Fashion Buzzword List for the second year in a row. Proof that Kate doesn&#39;t have to be over the top to matter in fashion.&nbsp;</p> <p> GLM&#39;s Manhattan-based Fashion Director, Bekka Payack, says of the buzzword:</p> <blockquote><p> &ldquo;The Duchess Effect appears to extend much further than the economic impact of Kate&rsquo;s fashion choices; this year the fashion landscape seems to be a brighter, more accessible place with the styles more colorful, feminine and graceful than we&rsquo;ve observed in many years. Fashion is now being influenced from all points on the globe, with the rise of the regional fashion centers driving tribal, sustainable and eco-based trends.&quot;</p> </blockquote> <p> Part of Kate&#39;s charm, as Payack points out, is her accessible wardrobe. A great example of The Dutchess Effect, defined by GLM as, &quot;The positive economic impact of Kate Middleton&rsquo;s fashion choices, derived from her new title, &lsquo;the Duchess of Cambridge,&#39;&quot; is evident in the bottom line of mid-range line <a href="http://www.reissonline.com/">Reiss</a>. After Kate began wearing the line to several events, including a white shift dress by the brand in her engagement photos, Reiss&#39; profit margin doubled, going from &pound;4.3 million to &pound;8.5 million ($6.7 million to $13.2 million) in 2011.</p> <p> Beyond the help Kate has given to retail, she has helped shape a new style for women around the world. Kate has played a part in bringing back lady-like fashion. Women emulate her look by wearing longer dresses (the midi length dress is one of Spring 2012&#39;s hottest looks), preppy style and ultra feminine prints.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/kate-middleton-pantyhose-the-duchess-effect" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Kate Middleton Offbeat Weird Wide Web Thu, 09 Feb 2012 18:40:00 +0000 Stacey Leasca 5691108 at http://www.globalpost.com Kate Middleton and Prince William to become Barbie dolls http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/kate-middleton-and-prince-william-become-barbie-dolls Mattel isn't the first company to sell Kate and William dolls. <p><a href="http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/weird-wide-web/kate-middleton-and-prince-william-become-barbie-dolls" target="_blank">read more</a></p> British Royal Wedding 2011 Culture & Lifestyle Kate Middleton United Kingdom Culture & Lifestyle United Kingdom Weird Wide Web Thu, 16 Feb 2012 16:04:00 +0000 Amy Silverstein 5692018 at http://www.globalpost.com
