Whitney Port reveals royal inspiration

Whitney Port says Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is "very Chanel".

The reality TV star-turned-designer described how the British royal family have impacted on her latest collection.

The 27-year-old showed her Whitney Eve Spring/Summer 13 collection at the most recent New York Fashion Week where influences of the monarch's style could be seen.

"A trip to the Tower of London, where I saw the crown jewels, was the inspiration for my last collection," Whitney revealed to British magazine Look.

"I wanted to base my prints on the gems, a bit like costume jewellery - even though the queen's jewels are real! The queen is very stylish, too - she's very Chanel."

After a stint as a judge on Britain's Next Top Model, Whitney's reputation for being a top stylista has grown.

The former star of MTV reality shows The Hills and The City is now invited to the biggest fashion shows, although this still leaves her star struck.

"My dream neighbour on the front row would be Rihanna. I don't even know if I'd be able to talk to her!" Whitney exclaimed. "I'd probably wait for her to talk to me, and then get all the info."
