She receives tens of thousands of fan letters because she's a classy young woman by all accounts, and her every move inspires endless speculation because she's a Duchess, but Kate Middleton's fashion sense is also widely praised.
So much so, Harper's Bazaar just named her Britain's Best Dressed woman!
Despite being criticized by some her quite old-fashioned look, conservative wardrobe choices and love of hosiery, Kate Middleton topped the list for 2011.
The Duchess of Cambridge single-handedly made the ladylike look trendy again - not bad for a girl who professes to have little or no interest in clothes.
Harper's Bazaar selected 20 women who continue to represent the best of British style - be it elegant, trend-setting, traditional or totally unpredictable.
Kate beat out the stylish likes of Florence Welch, Tilda Swinton, Keira Knightley, Stella McCartney, Alexa Chung and her own little sister Pippa Middleton.
