If last year was all about one big white dress, 2012 has been a showcase of Kate Middleton’s entire wardrobe.
With a demanding diary of Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Olympic spectating, state dinners and charity engagements, the Duchess of Cambridge has stepped up her role as Britain’s leading fashion queen.
Little wonder her high street, vintage and second-hand buys have been upgraded to designer pieces thanks to a reported £35,000 clothing allowance from Prince Charles.
Luckily, you don’t need a royal budget to emulate her regal style.
The high street is quick to leap on her every elegant fashion move with affordable options.
Middleton mania is rife - style search engine ShopStyle.co.uk experienced a 114 per cent increase in hunts for ‘red dresses’ following the outing of Kate’s Alexander McQueen scarlet frock for the Jubilee pageant.
There’s even a phone app, Kate’s Style List, which tracks her outfit decisions for die-hard Duchess admirers.
Find out how to get the Kate style in next week’s All Woman.
