A fashion icon in the making: the style choices that Kate set apart
Catapulted into the limelight following the start of her royal romance, Kate Middleton has come up with a winning style formula that could yet see her become an international icon.
By day, the royal sweetheart favours chic tailored jackets with nipped-in waists, fitted skirts and boots.
Although she's also a jeans-and-cowboy boots kind of a girl on casual occasions.
The couple's long history of attending their friends' weddings together has also meant her love of fascinators and long-line coats has been on display.
On evening engagements, Kate comes truly into her own, keeping her makeup and jewellery simple, and allowing her glorious chestnut mane to flow around her shoulders.
This puts the emphasis firmly on the gowns that she chooses to wear, which are often in the mould of what Diana's favourite dressmaker Catherine Walker called "the dignified showstopper".
