He was named the 49th best dressed man in Britain by GQ. So isn't it only natural that 23-year-old Max Knoblauch wanted to emulate Prince George's (2) style?

He was named the 49th best dressed man in Britain by GQ. So isn't it only natural that 23-year-old Max Knoblauch wanted to emulate Prince George's (2) style for a week?

"Prince George is always making the news for his outfits," the writer for Mashable reasoned. "He's the most fascinating figure in the world right now.

"He's a baby. He's done nothing with his life. Much like I've done nothing with mine. I'm perfect for this."

There's something about Prince George that draws people to him, the young journalist added.

"Sure, maybe it's the royalty thing. Maybe it's his accent, which I've never heard but is probably pretty cool. I'd like to think there's something else, though; something more. An undefined George Factor, if you will. And I was determined to figure out what it was."

So Max managed to get hold of man-sized versions of the little Prince's most iconic looks to date -- even the sailboat overalls.

Needless to say, we don't think Max will reignite the "Prince George effect" that sends mommies out to mimic the royal's style on their own tots, but at least Max, er, learned something. Sort of. "I guess I learned that to be a royal baby in 2015 - it's really nothing."
