Kate Middleton style, from the beginning »

We present your complete guide to everything Kate Middleton/Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge/the Future Queen of England has worn since officially becoming destined for the throne.

Frequently mixing designer pieces with High Street one offs, Kate Middleton’s style is as synonymous with Alexander Mcqueen as it is Topshop. The Duchess is also known for introducing little (or at least lesser) known designer labels to the mainstream, making household names of Erdem, Christopher Kane, LK Bennett and Jenny Packham.
