Wait, WHAT? Terry Richardson To Shoot Kate Middleton For Harper's?

April Fool!

Styleite's April Fool prank has to be our favourite fashion-focused spoof from the weekend!

Sources inside Harper's Bazaar (the US edition) apparently confirmed that Duchess Kate would grace the cover of the magazine's May edition, shot by none other than... Terry Richardson.

Styleite reports their source as saying:

"Kate is really trying to shed her good girl image. She wants her first American cover to make a splash and she thought Vogue would be too mainstream and obvious."

According to the source, Kate's fondness for Princess Diana's 1997 Harper's shoot with Patrick Demarchelier is what swayed the Duchess's choice of publication.

We'd like to raise an overexposed glass of bubbly against a depressing white hotel wall backdrop to the Styleite ladies for this one - good work!

(Although we'd also like to point out that a) we sincerely wish Kate would actually do stuff like this and b) this would also be an excellent time for the Queen to show her sense of humour and get Terry Richardson in to shoot her Diamond Jubilee...)
