The Duchess of Cambridge has yet another critic: Dame Vivienne Westwood, one of Britain's most celebrated (and iconoclastic) fashion designers. Westwood, 71, first called out Kate Middleton back in 2011 -- complaining about the royal's eye makeup -- and leveled a new attack on the pregnant 31-year-old over the weekend.

Promoting her London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2013 presentation, Westwood was asked by reporters about Prince William's wife talked-about style and offered an unexpected complaint: The Duchess should recycle her outfits more often.

"I don't have any advice for her, [although] I think it would be great if she wore the same clothes over and again, because that's very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message," Westwood said of Middleton -- who, indeed, frequently wears the same clothing and accessories at public events.

Continued Westwood: "If you're going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean, you don't have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next."

The celeb-beloved designer has previously said that Middleton's eye makeup is ill-conceived. "The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard," she told London's Sunday Times Magazine. "Either she should be smudgy or wear none."
