Kate Middleton’s Best-Dressed Looks
Which is your favorite of Kate's looks?
Kate Middleton wears many hats: mother of three, the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess of the United Kingdom, a philanthropist and also a major style icon. Whether she is sporting an evening gown at a fancy ball, a fascinator at a formal event with the royal family or donning chic maternity wear, this woman never fails to look poised, professional and polished.
Here are some of Middleton’s best style moments.
After becoming engaged, Middleton and Prince William began making public appearances together. She was photographed here wearing a chic oatmeal-colored coat with matching accessories during a trip to Wales Her fascinator and booties really make the outfit!
On a visit to the University of St. Andrew’s, where the royal couple met as students, Middleton sported a red two-piece blazer and skirt set that had a cute peplum accent. Who said “royal attire” had to be boring?
Regal Wedding Dress
Who could forget Middleton’s gorgeous wedding gown, which was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen? This lacy, long-sleeved dress with a nine-foot train was absolutely breathtaking and set off imitations around the world, as Meghan Markle’s wedding dress is expected to do.
The matching white set Middleton sported to a Wimbledon match back in 2001 was the perfect thing to wear on a warm day, and it was so fitting for the event!
This nude and navy lace dress is classically feminine, and Middleton looks absolutely amazing in it. What a way to make an entrance!
Pop Of Color
Middleton always knows just when to add a pop of color to her outfit. This red hat, which appears to have maple leaves on top, was just the right touch while she and Prince William visited Canada.
This light and airy yellow dress is quite dainty and perfect for a spring day. The Duchess nailed this seasonal look (even if it was a bit windy)!
Middleton had some fun by adding a handmade aspect to her look with this crochet top, which she wore to a BAFTA Inner City Arts Event in L.A. in 2011.
Talk about va-va-voom! This fancy floor-length black lace number really made a red carpet moment.
Middleton wore a simple A-line coat-dress in a lovely blue color, which was a good call considering her outfit complemented that of both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
Elegant In Emerald
Middleton donned a dark green overcoat in honor of St. Patrick’s Day and showed us all exactly how a Duchess should dress for such a holiday!
Blushing Balcony Look
This light blush-pink dress and matching fascinator couldn’t have looked more beautiful for Middleton’s public appearance with the royal family in 2012.
After announcing her pregnancy with her first child, Middleton sported a chic black and white spotted dress and proved that yes, even a royal can wear prints!
The Duchess was a fan of spots during her first pregnancy! She wore a blue polka-dot dress by Jenny Packham to show off her first child, Prince George, shortly after he was born on July 22, 2013.
Middleton went with a burgundy dress for the first official portrait with their new family of three, and she’s absolutely glowing. This photograph was snapped by her father, Michael Middleton, in his family’s backyard in Berkshire.
In another one of her red-carpet looks, Middleton made this spangly, all-over sequin number work for at a formal event, and we love her for it!
Little Black Dress
Even a royal needs a LBD in her closet. This one is subtle, yet oh-so chic — especially with the silver shoulder detail.
When the duchess sports a preppy “relaxed mom” look we’re so familiar with in our own lives, she looks truly comfortable. We love how she and George are matching! It doesn’t get cuter than that.
An at-ease Middleton is effortlessly gorgeous, and that’s why we love this green and white plaid dress. That, and the fact that she and Prince William are color-coordinated on their visits to Australia and New Zealand in 2014. Adorable!
Playing With Plaid
Middleton showed off a tailored plaid overcoat and heeled boots — along with her field hockey skills! — on a visit to her childhood school in 2012.
Middleton showed off her sporty side on a visit to New Zealand in 2014. Her red tailored suit and pumps didn’t stop her from taking a turn at cricket.
Pretty In Mint
Middleton stunned in mint on a trip to India with Prince William in 2016. Here the couple meet with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Chic In Bhutan

Time For A Trek
