Kate Middleton on Vanity Fair's Best-Dressed List

Kate Middleton Makes Vanity Fair's Best-Dressed List — Well-Deserved or Premature?

Kate Middleton earned a spot on Vanity Fair's best-dressed list! This marks the second time the Duchess of Cambridge has appeared in the magazine's roundup of the world's most stylish people, having also made the cut in 2008. There's no doubt that Kate's sartorial choices have been a hot topic for the past year, from the Issa dress she chose for the official announcement of her engagement to Prince William last November to the Alexander McQueen gown she wore to their historic royal wedding this April. Vanity Fair's 2011 best-dressed list also features music and movie stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake, along with several people from the political and royal realms, including Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Michelle and Barack Obama, and Princess Charlene Wittstock. So tell us — has Kate proven she deserves to be included in the company of the planet's biggest fashion stars, or does she need more time to prove a track record of great taste?

What is too old for her age??? Why are you all saying that? i mean she is the future Queen of England she can't really dress like Britney Spears.. she must be mindful of her clothes... i think she dress classy and elegant .. and she is beautiful... She is very modest which is very refreshing in this day and age...

To me fashion is about taking risks, not caring what anyone thinks and dressing well without too much help from a stylist, like say Diane Kruger, Rachel Bilson or yes, Lady Gaga. Kate is blah to me. She dresses way too old for her age and is very conservative, but I suppose you have to be when you're royalty. It doesn't seem that she has any say in her wardrobe whatsoever though. She just looks like a girl in a dress her stylist picked for her, and it isn't very good ones either. To me she's not a fashion icon in any way and neither is her sister.

she doesn't offend me and looks nice so that's fine...Lady Gaga, really? perhaps if I smoked meth and looked at her

VF is kissing ass just like the rest of the media. Kate's style is conservative and very safe, nothing risky or unique or worth salivating over. The same thing with Pippa, the media is shoving her down our throats. People magazine cover story, now there is a TLC special coming on about her, really people??? I'm sure they are lovely women but the ass kissing is getting old.

She looks nice and polished, sure, but is she breaking any ground here? Nope. I agree with many of the posters above in that she dresses way too old for her age.

I think that she deserves to be on this list much more than the sea of other celebrities who openly have stylists that dress them for everything!

While I think she is pretty conservative, it's so refreshing to see someone who dresses elegantly and like a lady making the best-dressed list.

I don't think most of the people on the list should be called best dressed.

Can you imagine the flack if they hadn't included Kate after all her recent publicity. VF couldn't win for losing on this matter.

These comments have to be joking! She always looks elegant and graceful and her style is constantly followed by people around the world. If Lady Gaga is on the list... Kate definitely deserves to be!

Oh hell no..

Very premature and highly inaccurate. She dresses like a 50 year old woman. She's not aspirational at all. Everything has been very blah since her wedding day.

She should never be included on a best dressed list. She never looks ugly but she never looks amazing either. She's really graceful though..
