Queen Latifah has suggested that Kate Middleton should 'loosen up' about her fashion sense.

While promoting her new fashion line the Hairspray star told People magazine: "I'd probably give her a pair of my skinny moto jeans and a fresh moto jacket with a cool tank, and I'd probably get her a nice pair of Ralph Lauren boots, throw her on a cool-ass motorcycle and tell her to go."

She added: "But that's just me. I'm standing in New York looking over the city, and I like to see a little ruggedness."

Despite offering fashion advice to the new Duchess of Cambridge, Latifah said she wouldn't change anything about Pippa Middleton's look saying: "Pippa's still kind of up-and-coming to me, she should get to wear whatever she wants."

Queen Latifah continued to state: "It's time to experiment with the kinds of things she wears. I think she has a great sense of taste, and she seems just like a girl's girl, and she knows how to have fun with the boys."
