As the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has become a fashion icon in her own right. Kate has taken on her royal duties with the utmost elegance and grace, and always looks impeccable at her public appearances. She’s had many memorable fashion milestones, like the deep-blue Issa engagement dress that launched the “little blue dress” trend and the gorgeous Alexander McQueen lace wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton that was truly fit for a princess. She cemented her place in people’s hearts even further when she made her first post-baby appearance in an unfussy polka-dotted Jenny Packham frock.
Kate’s star continues to rise in the fashion sphere and her wardrobe is comprised of ladylike classics, mixing haute couture with high street fashions from Zara, Topshop and J.Crew. Kate’s casual outfits reflect more of her sporty and down-to-earth personality. Whether she’s playing a little volleyball for charity (in wedge heels, no less) or taking in a basketball game courtside, Kate’s polished uniform of jeggings, simple top, blazer and pumps is always a hit. As for beauty, Kate let’s her natural beauty shine with light makeup, healthy hair and a radiant smile. With her beautifully tailored coats, occasion-appropriate fascinators, midi dresses and formal gowns, Kate Middleton inspires style watchers and shows us how to look put together without coming off as too buttoned up.
