Kate Middleton and Prince William wearing J. Crew clothes? Here's your visual, in honor of the retailer's London expansion and courtesy of Bloomberg Businessweek.

Prince William and Kate Middleton aren't actually "wearing" the brand's clothing, of course, but a mockup was created imagining just that scenario.

Kinda corny and a shameless attempt to sell magazines and build web buzz? You bet. But it worked, and it's hard to blame Bloomberg in a sense.

It's J. Crew! And Kate Middleton! How can you go wrong?

After all, this is what Michelle Obama, her girls and millions of others swear by, and we gotta say, Kate looks great in one of America's signature aesthetics.

Also, there's this GIF of the cover, which is awesome ...

Prince George's christening took place today at St. James Palace in London, with parents Kate Middleton and Prince William beaming proudly from ear to ear.

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge pulled up in a dark blue sedan and made their way to the courtyard, a tiny cry could be heard from the guest of honor.

William held his baby boy, who was wearing the traditional lace-and-silk baptismal robe, first fashioned for Queen Victoria's son, the future King Edward VII, in 1841.

Kate Middleton wore a cream-colored skirt suit and matching fascinator by Alexander McQueen, whose creative director, Sarah Burton, also designed her wedding dress.

She also donned a matching hat by Jane Taylor and had her long hair brushed to the side for the special event, which was small by royal standards.

Kate Middleton was at Prince William's side for the inaugural Tusk Conservation Awards at the Royal Society in London Thursday night, and she looked amazing.

What else is new, right?

Arriving with a tuxedo-clad William at 7:10 p.m., Kate Middleton wore a drop-waist, floor-length, pale gold sequin gown by designer favorite Jenny Packham.

Although similar to an existing design, Kate's dress was custom-made, and costs approximately $6,300 ... no need to crash Jenny's website this time.

William, who is leaving the British military to focus on charity work, presented two awards for outstanding achievement in the field of African conservation.

Kate Middleton has officially stepped outside of her fashion comfort zone!

In London Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge worked the red carpet at the BOA Olympic Concert dress in a stunning emerald Jenny Packham pleated gown.

The design, which featured a low-cut neckline and a sheer, lace back, is accented with a crystal-adorned ribbon that cinched the royal's waist. Take a look:

The 30-year-old fashion icon paired the breathtaking dress with Jimmy Choo "Vamp" platform glitter sandals and a matching Jenny Packham bespoke clutch.

The more-revealing-than-normal number wasn't her only new look this week. Kate Middleton's dress earlier this week turned heads due to its slit up the leg.

Kate, who arrived hand-in-hand with her husband Prince William, wore her hair in an elaborate braided chignon that ensured the dress' sheer back was on display.

Another resounding style win, wouldn't you say? For many more of the fashionable royal's looks, follow the link for THG's gallery of Kate Middleton pics!

Prince William and Kate Middleton are back together and back on the red carpet. The royal couple, who are set to celebrate their first wedding anniversary Sunday, stepped out Wednesday for the London premiere of the Disney Nature film, African Cats.

Nothing could rain on their parade ... not even rain:

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, wore a tailored gray Matthew Williamson peplum dress with a jeweled turquoise hem to the event, which benefitted one of her husband's charitable causes, the Tusk Trust charity.

The film tells the story of a pride of lions and a family of cheetahs.

It's the first event for William and Kate since he returned from military service in the Falklands. She held her own, making several appearances solo in his absence.

One day before her 30th birthday, the Duchess of Cambridge and husband Prince William attended the premiere of War Horse in London today.

It marked first royal film premiere for Kate, who walked the carpet in a black, lace Alice Temperley gown (below). Suffice it to say, she looked fabulous.

William shielded his wife from the rain with an umbrella.

The film's legendary director Steven Spielberg, along with War Horse's lead actor, Jeremy Irvine, were also on hand for the star-studded UK event.

The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, which helps military servicemen and women transition back to their civilian lives, was the beneficiary.

In addition to the organization, fans who got a glimpse of the royal couple in person were also big winners, although these Kate Middleton pictures will do!

In case you thought Kate Middleton got any less stylish over the past few months, you were mistaken! Not that anyone in their right mind would think that. Anyway.

The Duchess of Cambridge turned heads this weekend at London's annual military awards show designed to recognize servicemen and women throughout the UK.

The 29-year-old wife of Prince William wore a beautiful black Alexander McQueen gown as she and husband William attended "A Night of Heroes." Take a look ...

Yes, that is Prince Harry creeping in the background.

The gown, which appeared to be strapless and black velvet, was accessorized with sparkly earrings and a necklace that she reportedly received as royal wedding gifts.

Kate's wedding dress, of course, was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The girl definitely has her favorites ... and exquisite taste, if you ask us.

Wills, meanwhile, looked dapper in a classic black tux at the event, part of a busy week for the couple, who will spend Christmas at the palace and with her family.

All in all, they make Britain proud with each public appearance. Check out our gallery of Kate Middleton pictures for more fashion highlights from the past year!

After a brief hiatus, the rumor mill once again is buzzing with reports that Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant with the future heir(ess) to the throne.

The reason for the most recent speculation? A conspicuous clutch!

When Kate joined her in-laws at a concert at Royal Albert Hall benefiting the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry and the Prince's Trust, all eyes were on the Duchess ... specifically her lower belly region, which was covered up! OMG!

Kate Middleton, Clutch

Like the entire cast of Grey's Anatomy holding pillows and plates of food and sitting down a lot and being shown from the neck up, Kate is OBVIOUSLY pregnant, right?

Not so fast.

Middleton cinched a $99 lace-accented Zara sheath (which is already sold out, naturally) with a wide black belt, but when Kate was holding her purse off to the side, instead of in front, her waistline looked as tiny as always.

So ... that's pretty much that.

The ever-stylish princess also wore a black Ralph Lauren jacket, black tights and heels, BTW. She's very pretty and was recently named Britain's Best Dressed.

Kate Middleton was recently given a pair of Princess Diana's favorite earrings by Prince William, who previously gave her Diana's sapphire and diamond engagement ring. The earrings were said to be his late mother's favorites.

"Now that they're married, William wanted her to have some of his mother's favorite pieces that meant a lot to her," an insider tells The Daily Mail (UK).

Ever the fashionista, Kate Middleton opted to give Diana's earrings a modern twist by having the studs remodeled into drop earrings, as seen below:

On the last day of their Canadian tour (they arrive in the U.S. today) Prince William and Kate Middleton went all out for the Calgary Stampede.

Wearing Stetsons and jeans, the royal couple were greeted by the Governor General of Canada, His Excellency David Johnston, at the event.

As they watched a performance by the Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede, the Duke and Duchess were even seeing tapping his toes!

YEE-HA: William and Kate looked great, don't y'all agree?

Margaret Southern, co-chairman of the Spruce Meadows equestrian park in Calgary, Alberta, said, "I was proud to see them wearing their hats."

"William said 'When in Rome, do as the Romans do,' and I thought that was very sweet ... They didn't have to wear the hats, but they did."

"Kate said to me, 'Doesn't William look handsome?'"

We'd have to say she was right, wouldn't you? The look suits the Duchess, too. This is easily one of our favorite Kate Middleton pics to date!
