Kate Middleton: Fashion Icon

Posted Apr 22, 2011

Ever since the world found out that Prince William was in love, people’s fascination with Kate Middleton went beyond her common status. With her printed pencil skirts, elaborate hats and tailored coats, the 29-year-old bride-to-be has been crowned as a bona fide fashionista.
Middleton did, of course, work as an accessory buyer for high-end U.K. clothing boutique Jigsaw. And with what seems like every major fashion geniuses from Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu to the design houses of Valentino and Alexander McQueen wanting the chance to design her wedding dress, it is pretty safe to say she’s a fashion force to be reckoned with. People has noticed her fashion sense way before she started sporting the iconic sparkly sapphire and diamond engagement ring. The magazine named her one of its British fashion favorites in 2007. Style.com has also named Middleton a “beauty icon.”
