Tommy Hilfiger would love to dress Princess Catherine.

The US designer is famed for his preppy all American look yet he believes Catherine - who wore a stunning Alexander McQueen gown when she married Prince William in a lavish ceremony at London's Westminster Abbey last month - has the perfect style credentials to represent the brand.

He said: "Catherine has a very classic yet modern style. I would love to dress her and I think she already has the makings of the perfect preppy!"

However, the Duchess of Cambridge is not the only famous female Tommy admires, the 60-year-old designer cited Gwyneth Paltrow as someone who represents the preppy look calling her "effortlessly elegant".

He told vogue.co.uk: "Gwyneth Paltrow instantly springs to mind. She is effortlessly elegant and has a strong sense of what works for her. She takes a classic piece, a white Oxford shirt for instance, and wears it in a modern way; a slight roll of the sleeve and pop at the collar is very charming and very preppy."
