Kate Middleton's a fashion success

Kate Middleton has impressed fans and experts alike with her dress sense and she deserves her place on Vanity Fair’s 2011 list of 10 International Best Dressed Women.

The Duchess of Cambridge joins actress Carey Mulligan and French first lady Carla Bruni and is praised for a ‘whirlwind of fashion successes’.

Kate, 29, looks great in bargain high street numbers – especially from Reiss – and cleverly recycles designer outfits with different accessories.

‘We like the fact that she can be both thrifty or extravagant,
that she shops in her own closet, and that she is having a global
influence on fashion, with her hats and ladylike youthfulness,’ says Vanity Fair’s contributing editor Amy Fine Collins.

‘She also has the ideal figure for clothes – broad shoulders, tiny waist, long legs.’
