Kate MiddletonBecame a fashion icon before she got married Prince WilliamAlexander McQueen Wedding gown For as long we can remember, the Duchess has been pairing her signature bouncy curls with glamorous ensembles.
Let’s take it back to 2002, shall we? Middleton, a freshman at St. Andrews University of Scotland’s college, modeled in a charity fashion showcase in a black sheer dress. This caught the attention of her husband. After graduating in 2005 she worked as an accessory buyer for British fashion label Jigsaw. This proves that she is a true style expert!
Flash back to her 2011 wedding day and the dress that stole our hearts. The Victorian-inspired gown featured a train measuring nearly 9 feet long and delicate floral lace sleeves. And to — quite literally — top off the unforgettable gown, the duchess wore a Cartier Halo Tiara, borrowed from Queen Elizabeth.
Ever since the weddingAnd the birth of the duchess’s three children — Charlotte, George and Louis — she’s continued to impress UseWe are always impressed by her fashion choices. We love that she’s unafraid to re-wear a dress years later (like the red Preen number she originally debuted in Canada in 2016) and that she likes to wear pieces with special meaning (like the eagle-covered frock she wore on her royal tour of Germany in 2017).
While the duchess’ style has undoubtedly changed since she drew the attention of Prince William on the catwalk over 15 years ago, she consistently chooses looks that feature bright colors, floral patterns and form-fitting silhouettes.
