Yep, Kate Middleton Wore Neon Crocs in 2007

Admit it: If you looked at photos of what you wore 11 years ago, you'd probably cringe a bit at some of the outdated items (unless you were way ahead of your time in the style department, in which case I give you props. As it turns out, not even royalty is immune to the feeling. When I was researching photos for an upcoming story, I stumbled across a rare sight: Kate Middleton wearing bright pink Crocs in 2007, three years before getting engaged and four years before officially becoming royalty.

The future Duchess of Cambridge was photographed on a few different occasions while training with the Sisterhood Rowing Team. Of course, there's nothing wrong with wearing Crocs in 2018, but it's safe to say they're not a part of the Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe anymore.

Associate Director, Fashion News

I got my start as a Who What Wear intern eleven years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (We've since increased that number twentyfold.) I graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how I ended up moving to Los Angeles from my hometown of San Diego. In college, I also interned at Refinery29, where I was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, I came back to WWW in 2016, where I currently hold the title of Associate Director, Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royals expert—in case you haven't noticed my numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). I spend my days trying to incorporate my idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, I love tennis, dogs, classic rock, and traveling.
