In honor of Kate Middleton's 30th birthday today, we decided to bestow some love upon the Duchess of Cambridge and her many famous namesakes here at THG.

We do cover an inordinate number of Kates, Katies, Katys and Katherines in our line of work, and we have to say, many of them are pretty fabulous.

Take a look at our Top 10 and vote for your favorite below!

10. Katherine Heigl. We used to love her on Grey's Anatomy. Since leaving that show on bad terms, she's gone on to ... what has she been in lately? Hmm.

9. Kate Upton. Victoria's Secret model / teenage Mark Sanchez girlfriend.

8. Kate Moss. Older, more famous, significantly lighter model.

7. Kate Gosselin. Groan. No introduction necessary.

6. Kate Beckinsale. Underworld Awakening badass!

  • Beckinsale
  • Katy Perry, Long Pink Hair
  • A New Emmy Winner

5. Kate Hudson. A fun-loving free-spirited star with talent to boot. What's not to love about Hudson, her famous folks, her rocker fiance, and sons Ryder and Bing.

4. Katy Perry. Fun fact - born Katheryn Hudson, the newly-single singer chose the stage name Katy Perry so as not to be confused with ... Kate Hudson!

3. Katharine McPhee. Major THG crush for a few years after her run on American Idol, now starring on the buzzed-about new show Smash on NBC!

2. Kate Winslet. One of the more talented and classy actresses around, and what can we say, we totally in the tank for the British. Which brings us to ...

1. Kate Middleton. She's royalty. In real life and here.

Who's your favorite Kate?

Kate Winslet really has no idea how to play this celebrity gossip game.

She is supposed to get divorced, talk trash about her ex and maybe make a sex tape with a new boyfriend, only to complain about how it got out and then star in a reality show.

Instead, the Oscar winner has to be all mature and grounded, as evidenced by her interview in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar UK. Asked about ex-husband Sam Mendes (the pair divorced in March 2010), Winslet replied:

"It's fine, it's really fine. I'm not going to s***fling, there's no point in even going there... We're grown-ups at the end of the day, and however hard it's been for me, it’s been equally hard for him. And we have a child together who we both love - and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key."

Come on, Kate. What are we supposed to do with that?!?

Kate Winslet has herself in a "boy toy situation."

That's how The Daily Mail describes this Oscar and Emmy winner's new romance with Richard Branson's nephew, a 33-year old who has legally changed his name to Ned Rocknroll. The couple attended the funeral of Richard's father together in London on Tuesday.

"Ned is really happy with Kate," a source says. "[Ned] feels he can learn so much from her. It's sexy."

Winslet has been a long-time friend of the billionaire Branson and actually carrie his elderly mother, Eva, to safety last month after the house she was staying in caught on fire.

Rocknroll, meanwhile, recently separated from his wife.

Jane Lynch hosted, but Gwyneth Paltrow put on her own show at Sunday's Emmy Awards in a see-through Pucci dress that showcased her toned stomach.

Not the kind of thing you normally see on someone not named Kardashian, but she does look amazing for 38. Did she push it too far with this, though?

Gwyneth Paltrow's Emmy dress was certainly the night's most daring, but can it compete with Kate Winslet's gorgeous gown? That's a different matter.

The British actress, like Nina Dobrev and Lea Michele, wore red on the red carpet, and dazzled in doing so. Who dressed best, Gwyneth or Kate? Sound off below!

Kate Winslet is featured in the latest issue of British Vogue, covering the publication and speaking on her recent split from Louis Dowler.

"Experiencing those moments of being alone... is a very, very weird flooring and exposing position to be in when you're just not used to it. But I've never been lonely," she says and...

Kate Winslet has gone public with Louis Dowler.

The Oscar-winning actress and the British model were spotted on the streets of London over the weekend, walking hand-in-hand as they went to dinner and a nightclub on Saturday night.

In March, Winslet and director Sam Mendes announced they had split after nearly seven years of marriage and one son together. (Winslet also has a daughter from a previous marriage to Jim Threapleton).

Dowler and Winslet reportedly met through a mutual acquaintance and have "been on lots of dates and really enjoy each other's company," a source told Great Britian's The Mirror.  "Louis has a good sense of humor and is a lovely guy. He gets lots of attention when he's out and about - but he's not your typical model. Not at all big-headed.

"Kate certainly seems smitten... They've really got something special."

The seven-year marriage of Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes is over.

"Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year," their lawyers said in a statement. "The split is amicable and by mutual agreement."

"Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children."

Winslet and Mendes were married back in 2003. The award-winning director and Titanic star / perennial Oscar nominee have a six-year-old son, Joe, together.

Winslet also has a daughter, Mia, 9, from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton. It's always sad to report stories like this, but we wish them both the best.

Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet are throwing in the towel.

Our previous Oscar night style showdown pitted Meryl Streep and Charlize Theron against each other. This face-off might be a more difficult choice for fans.

Needless to say, Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are both stunning blondes, and needless to say, both looked stunning in silver last night, albeit differently.

Cameron's dress sparkled, literally, while Kate's epitomized traditional class.

Hard to go wrong either way, but which of the stars' stylish silver dresses do you think looked better on her at the Academy Awards? Vote below!

Kate Winslet took home the Best Actress honor at the Oscars last night, and her stunning dress may leave her among the Academy Awards fashion winners as well.

As for Sarah Jessica Parker?

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

She was practically falling out of her dress. That is not without merit, but we expected something trendier from a star whose claim to fame is Sex and the City.

Which star's outfit do you prefer?
