Kate Middleton Joins Victoria Beckham On International Best Dressed List

The Duchess of Cambridge has made Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed List for the fourth time since 2008

Kate Middleton’s status as a style icon has been firmly cemented with another mention on Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List. It’s the fourth time the new mum has landed herself the accolade since her first appearance in 2008.

Kate, whose wardrobe recycling and consistently stunning style statements make headlines on a daily basis, is joined on the list by fellow Brit Victoria Beckham, plus actress Kerry Washington and the deliciously smart Justin Timberlake.

Poor Prince Harry has been bumped off this year’s list (ouch), but Kate is joined by more royals, including Princess Letizia of Spain and Princess Madeleine of Sweden. The US magazine managed to squeeze in a shot of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing her now world-famous powder blue polka dot Jenny Packham dress, the demand for which caused the fashion brand’s website to crash moments after its news channel debut.

Kate‘s brother-in-law Prince Harry wasn’t the only famous face to miss out on a mention, though. Both Michelle and Barack Obama are missing from this year’s list. Michelle wasn’t included for the second year running, while the stylish president hasn’t made an appearance since 2009.

Beyoncé, Dita Von Teese and even more surprisingly Keith Richards are making their Best Dressed list debuts.

We’re not surprised that the Duchess of Cambridge made the cut once again. With her style hits including pieces by Jenny Packham, Alexander McQueen and Burberry, plus high street favourites Hobbs, Zara and even ASOS, it’s no wonder her wardrobe hits are being copied the world over. Last week, despite us only seeing a glimpse of her shoulder in a Seraphine maternity dress, there’s now a month-long waiting list for the blue floral wrap dress.

Congrats, Duchess. No pressure on your next outfit, then…
