Stylish and sassy: How Kate's setting trends

At Zara Phillips' wedding this summer, Kate made sure not to upstage the bride by wearing a coat she had previously worn in 2006. Noble and thrifty.
She says she doesn't want to be a 'clothes horse' but Kate knows how to give good glamour as her choice of Jenny Packham gown (pictured on pxx) at the Ark Charity Gala proved. Her ability to work a thigh-length dress earned her a spot in Vogue's current 'Best Dressed' edition.
"Short enough to be impossible for an older generation royal, long enough to be decent when sitting or bending to talk to a child," enthused the fashion bible.
Nude platforms were ubiquitous at weddings this summer. Who says Kate's not a trendsetter?
High-street brands such as Reiss, LK Bennett, Whistles and Zara sported by the Princess have earned a legion of copy-Kates. The nude Reiss Shola bandage dress worn to meet the Obamas sold out around in world in minutes.
