Kate Middleton's Sartorial Reign: See Her 10 Most Iconic Looks

Though there are many reasons to love Kate Middleton, a distinguished Duchess, a renowned philanthropist, and an adoring mother, it's her refined ladylike style that keeps us on constant Middleton watch. From glittering Jenny Packham gowns to British-branded Alexander McQueen creations, Kate has the couture game on lock — but that's not to say the lady of the hour is all about name brands. We've spotted the Duchess working statement pieces on more than one occasion and forgoing royal diamonds for more accessible accessories, which has kicked our adoration into overdrive.

To celebrate Kate's 32nd birthday, we're counting down her top 10 most iconic looks to date. Scroll down, and see if your favorite fashions made the cut!

Kate's first postbaby red carpet appearance was nothing short of glamorous. Her shimmering pale gold Jenny Packham gown was expertly accessorized with equally sparkling accessories: strappy sandals and a bejeweled bracelet.

This lacy Alice by Temperley gown hugged Kate in all the right places. A velvet Pretty Ballerina clutch and diamond tennis bracelet enhanced the dramatic elegance of her War Horse premiere look in 2012.


Technically this is two different looks, but since they were worn the same day, and both designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, let's just count them as one. Okay? For the biggest day in our her life, Kate Middleton dazzled in an angelic princess gown, then partied the night away in a white satin gazar and strapless silhouette, embellished with silver diamante embroidery, topped with a soft white angora bolero cardigan .
