Kate Middleton was bound to be the next big source and inspiration for celebrity style– she’s royalty, after all! So it’s no surprise that haute nail polish brand Essie was so inspired by her style that they created their entire Fall line based on it. We told you a few weeks back that Essie’s new line of nail polish for Fall was inspired by post-war 1940s and 1950s handbag colors. But founder Essie Weingarten recently told InStyle.com: “The type of woman whose handbag speaks volumes about her, that’s who inspired me with this collection. Like Kate Middleton when she met President Obama wearing a classic beige dress, black heels and matching black clutch. It was just so ladylike. I love the look of classic, fashionable, and timeless.” The Fall 2011 collection consists of six nail polish, all named after handbags – like “Carry On” – a deep burgundy, “Power Clutch” – a gray-green tone, “Very Structured” – a classic burnt sienna, “Glamour Purse” – an almond taupe, “Lady Like” – a soft mauve, and “Case Study” – a rich camel beige that resembles Kate’s favorite nude hue.
