How to Pull a Dress Like a True Duchess

Everyone knows that celebrities don’t buy their own clothes, right? We can’t applaud the Duchess of Cambridge for her fashion sense when she has a stylist. Designer brands are eager to get their clothes on the young royal and items sell out within minutes of her wearing them proving the Kate Effect is global.

While even the brunette beauty's casual attire is sought after, the public has eyes on her the most when she travels. Kate Middleton have been to endless events, public appearances and parties, and she never puts a nude-pumped foot wrong in the style stakes. As Prince Williams wife, Kate has been all over the world from India to Los Angeles, and for each location has several lust-worthy looks.

Kate wore an aquamarine Emilia Wickstead dress and Jane Taylor hat while arriving at Dunedin International Airport in Dunedin, New Zealand.

The Duchess wore a Tory Burch floral and mesh gown for a private dinner with the king and queen of Bhutan during their most recent royal tour.

To attend the Kranji War Memorial in Singapore, Kate wore a duck egg blue Jenny Packham dress. She's been spotted wearing several of the designers frocks over the years and has quickly become a favorite of the Duchess.

The royal beauty wore Tory Burch again during her visit to NYC. This time instead of a full length gown, the Duchess rocked a chic $595 tweed Tory Burch coat, black skinny jeans, and black pumps.

Though she has access to all the clothes in the world, Kate notoriously recycles many of her outfits and did just that during a day trip to Scotland. She wore a dark green, knee-length coat from Sportmax, one that she previously donned at previous Christmas festivities. Under the coat she rocked a houndstooth skirt from the brand Le Kilt.

On a visit to UNICEF’s Emergency Supply Centre in Copenhagen, Kate wore long red "Ami" coat by L.K. Bennett and paired it with a belt by Reiss.

Kate looked ready to hit the tennis courts in her traditional cream knit dress by Alexander McQueen and navy Prada shoes.

The Duchess donned a Day Birger et Mikkelsen coat—something she's worn several times previously—and paired it with a bespoke version of Lock & Co's Morning Rose Perching Hat.

Proving that true style can be found at any budget, the royal opted for a $50 Hobbs dress while visiting Ayers Rock in Australia.

For a quick trip to Belgium, the Duchess relied on one of her favorite brands to make a public appearance. Her dress was from fashion house Alexander McQueen, the same group who designed her famous wedding dress.

The royal treatment here being that women pay thousands of pounds for clothes that Kate gets for free because of who she married. And that's a fact. Like her mother-in-law, Kate shows her side of becoming a fashion icon.
