Katie Couric welcomed a professional Kate Middleton look-alike to her talk show last week, and dug deep into everything it takes to impersonate the Duchess of Cambridge. Apparently, it involves lots of office parties and birthday appearances (for which she's compensated $1,000 a day on average) and denying requests to take topless photos, go figure. A Wills impersonator also stepped out to be by her side, but didn't attempt to dance, unfortunately. [Styleite]
