Wedding, April 2011. The world waited with baited breath to see what the newly coined Duchess would wear, and few were disappointed. Emulating Grace Kelly in long-sleeved lace Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton, Kate was breathtaking.
9 Children's Hospital Visit, April 2013 Those on Bump-Watch were thrilled when the Duchess finally popped in the spring time, and far from trying to hide her growing stomach, she embraced it in a series of flowing mini-dresses and pretty coats. Glowing in peach, this was a favourite.
Irish Guard Visit, June 2011 Newly minted as a newlywed Royal, Kate's military-themed McQueen coat and hat were the perfect choice to accompany her husband to visit his regiment. Showing fashion savvy and still looking appropriate is a tough call, but Kate managed it by turning to a favoured designer.
Engagement, November 2010 The now iconic Issa dress that sold out and spawned knock-offs galore was the perfect choice for the couple's engagement announcement. Managing to be sexy and demure at the same time was no mean feat, but Kate pulled it off, and choosing the same shade of sapphire as her ring was genius. A fashion icon was born.
Society Wedding, August 2009 Back to her elegant best, Kate's periwinkle-blue and white ensemble was wedding perfection. Flawless hair and make-up, the perfect head for a hat and managing to show off her amazing figure while covered up, she looked perfect on Prince William's arm.
Roller Disco, September 2008 After being spectacularly dumped by her Royal beau, Kate showed him what he was missing in a garish ensemble designed to show her fun-loving side. No longer buttoned up, she took a walk on the wild side in sequins and hot-pants, and it must have worked – she got him back within weeks.
Being a prince's WAG might sound like a dream come true to many. But it isn't always easy when it comes to having the eyes of the world upon you, judging your style every time you leave the house.
Like Princess Diana before her,
Kate Middleton has been under the fashion microscope since she first started dating Prince William in 2002. However, unlike the former Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, Kate has had far more hits than misses in the style stakes. Apart from a couple of blips early on, Kate has been remarkably chic throughout the years, even while heavily pregnant. Here we follow her most iconic looks since she's been in the public eye.
St Andrew's Fashion Show, March 2002 Stalking down the runway in a sheer sarong fashioned as a dress, with her underwear clearly visible, this is reportedly the moment that Kate really piqued the Prince's interest – surprise, surprise! The college fashion show shots have gone down in history, and while it's not Kate's most elegant look, she still manages to pull it off somehow.
