Since settling in to her new title as Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has become a bonafide fashion icon for fans and Royal watchers worldwide.

Whenever she steps out in some new designer outfit, it sets off a torrent of online demand, often causing designers to sell out of the designs within hours. (Most recently, Middleton created a run on a Zara's black-and-nude lace dress - causing it to sell out in every size nearly immediately, both online and in shops - after she appeared in one at a charity concert.)Since her first appearance on the public scene, Catherine has been praised for her fashion sense and included on numerous "best dressed" lists. During the run-up to her royal wedding to Prince William, she was among the top Fashion-related searches on the entire Internet. Looking over this list of the Duchess's most stylish and fashionable looks, it's not hard to see why.
