Kate Middleton is known for her many amazing fashion moments. The Duchess of Cambridge has been one of the most fashionable people of the royal family for over a decade. And she isn’t showing any signs of slowing down any time soon. You can always expect to see Kate in something polished and appropriate, but that takes the fashion level up a notch. She is no stranger to fashion and being in the public eye. Her love story with Prince William started this way. It was on the runway while she was strutting the catwalk when she caught the eye of Prince William. Now, even as a wife and mother, she continues to pull off stunning ensembles whenever she makes an appearance. You can spot her in anything from a frock with A-line hems or a tailored coat dress — but no matter what she wears, it will always look amazing. To take a trip down memory lane with the Duchess of Cambridge, check out Kate Middleton’s 12 best fashion moments of all time.
Way before Kate became an official member of the royal family, she was of course fashionable and well dressed. She was seen at the Sovereign’s Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in December 2006, wearing a chic Giorgio Armani coat.
For her engagement announcement with Prince William, she wore a dark blue Issa wrap dress. This was the dress that began a movement, and officially marked the beginning of what is now known as the “Kate effect.” This phenomenon ensured that everything Kate wore would be copied and immediately fly off the racks.
While everyone was impressed with her engagement dress, Kate one upped herself with her wedding dress. She wore a masterpiece created by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen that totalled a whopping $434,000 to make. It featured silk ivory tulle, a beautiful silhouette, and handmade lace. The 8-foot train was the icing on the cake.
For the 2011 BAFTA Brits to Watch event in Los Angeles, Kate wore a beautiful lilac frock by Alexander McQueen. It was enhanced with a gorgeous beaded white belt. She rewore the Greek goddess-inspired dress again 10 years later at an event in London.
Beautiful as ever, Kate wore a gorgeous coat for St. Patrick’s Day that surely did not disappoint her fashionista fans. The coat was created by Emilia Wickstead and featured a crossover waist and a thin black belt.
During her three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia, Kate wore a beautiful white dress designed by Lela Rose. It featured open sleeves with intricate designs and a peplum overlay.
Even while pregnant, Kate was still as stylish as ever. During her pregnancy, she was spotted wearing a soft pink McQueen coat with a Peter Pan collar. It featured pearl buttons, and she paired the look with a matching pink hat designed by Jane Talor Millinery.
Another milestone in Kate’s fashion journey is when she graced the cover of British Vogue in April 2016. It was the magazine’s 100th issue, and she wore a simple get-up composed of a brown suede jacket coat, white button up shirt, and a simple but bold hat.
In March 2017, Kate wore a beautiful floor-length dress designed by Temperley. It was made with lace and a keyhole back that definitely played up on the drama. She wore it beautifully and paired it with her long silky flowing hair down and a simple gold clutch.
Another royal event that will be remembered for its own importance — but also for Kate’s beautiful fashion sense — is the 2019 State Banquet. She wore another ensemble by Alexander McQueen that was absolutely the talk of the evening. It was a ruffled skirt that fell to the ground effortlessly in beautiful white tiers. It featured a cute sweetheart neckline and a full skirt. She paired it with a stunning tiara by Lover’s Knot. The ensemble was completed with a blue sash that represents the Royal Victorian Order, which is an honor of service to the monarch. It was given to Kate by the Queen on her eighth anniversary with hubby Prince William.
During her official visit to Northern Ireland with Prince William, Kate wore a monochromatic purple suit by Emilia Wickstead. She paired it with a navy turtleneck and matching navy heels.
One of the best looks of Duchess of Cambridge. Kate Middleton wore this Bond girl-esque gold gown designed by Jenny Packham to attend the James Bond “No Time to Die” premiere in London. She definitely stole the show that evening.
