Kate Middleton Earns Place on Vanity Fair Best Dressed List

by at . Comments

The Duchess of Cambridge is also the Queen of Fashion.

Kate Middleton secured a spot in Vanity Fair’s 72nd Annual International Best-Dressed List in 2011, making the style cut for the second time in three years.

Praised by the publication for her “signature mix of high and low fashion,” Kate stole the hearts - and wardrobes - of many, showing the world that fashion does not always have to come at a steep price - even for a royal!

Her classic, elegant, and reproducible style garnered her the moniker “the pauper’s princess,” with her relatively affordable attire inspiring millions.

The $340 nude Reiss dress she wore when meeting the Obamas in May caused a blowout to the British retailer, selling out online and in the U.S.

From mid-level retailers to Zara to Top Shop, Kate Middleton has proven to be “the princess of our times,” says Zanna Roberts Rassi of Marie Claire:

“She’s more of a people’s princess than Diana. Diana was understated, but she liked her labels. Kate’s heralding this almost changing of the guard, from the stuffy royal family to this modern-day princess that we can all relate to.”

It also helps that she's gorgeous!

Others on the list this year include actress Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Colin Firth, and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the First Lady of France.

Notably absent from the list? Pippa Middleton. However, Kate's little sister continues spark her own trends. She is Queen of the Booty, after all.

What bloody BS. “She’s more of a people’s princess than Diana. Diana was understated, but she liked her labels. Kate’s heralding this almost changing of the guard, from the stuffy royal family to this modern-day princess that we can all relate to.” That is soo flippin not true. Kate is in for royalty and money. Diana was a better person than Kate. Seriously people when are you going to open your eyes. All Kate wants is cash. She's probably doing sweet things know but when it rains it going to pour in the royalty hood!!!! XOXO
