Kate Middleton has been voted the most stylish woman in Britain, with voters insisting that the Duchess Of Cambridge is still hugely influential when it comes to what to wear.
This poll was conducted by Alicia Kay Style, via the Mirror, and Kate Middleton won with around 33 percent of the vote. She just beat out Holly Willoughy, a television presenter who hosts ITV’s This Morning every weekday, who came in second with 20 percent of people insisting that they followed her style.
Speaking about Kate Middleton’s success in this poll, Alicia Kite of Alicia Kay Style explained, “Kate has become a fashion icon thanks to her classic style. She knows how to make the most of her wardrobe and reworks her existing outfits to make them appropriate for different occasions.”
Kate Middleton’s popularity in the field of fashion is due to the fact that she mixes expensive high end fashion and designer clothes with laid-back, casual fashion choices from more affordable boutiques.
This was very much evident in her family Christmas card that was released to the public earlier this week. In the photo Kate Middleton beams with pride as she stands alongside her husband of four years, the second in line to the British throne, Prince William, and their two children, 2-year-old Prince George and 6-month-old Princess Charlotte. You can check out the picture of the foursome together below.

Kate Middleton looked nonchalantly stylish when she attended a ceremony on Wednesday that saw her become an ambassador for the Air Cadets. Wearing a red dress, with a black belt and buttons, Middleton looked stoic but stylish as she gracefully accepted the honor, while standing alongside her grandfather-in-law, Prince Philip.

This is far from the first time that Kate Middleton has been given such acclaim. Ever since she married Prince William back in 2011 the 33-year-old royal’s name has been on a number of best dressed lists because of her attire choices.
And even though Kate Middleton spent a prolonged period of 2015 out of the limelight due to the fact that she gave birth to her second child, Princess Charlotte, back in May, clearly the British public was still eager to see what she was wearing, and her influence is just as impressive as ever.
Kate Middleton’s impact because of her style has been prominent ever since she originally became engaged to Prince William. In fact, the copycats that have tried to imitate her fashion have boosted the British company tenfold through their purchases.
Speaking just after Prince William and Kate Middleton became engaged back in April 2011, Anna Wintour, the famed editor-in-chief of American Vogue, explained to the BBC, “Whenever any important figure wears fashion it’s going to influence people all over the world, and obviously this is her moment, so anything that she chooses is going to be of huge interest.”
She then added, “Obviously Kate Middleton is going to be put under a microscope in terms of the press coverage, and how important she’ll be is really her call.”
From the fact that she’s repeatedly picked up accolades and awards for her style over the past four years, it’s safe to say that she’s handled this ascension rather well.
