Duchess of Cambridge Fashion

Vanity Fair's 2012 Style Issue Gets Two Cover Stars

Vanity Fair gave us a preview of its 73rd International Best-Dressed list today with the top spot going to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge again for the second year in a row. The Duchess has gained worldwide recognition for recycling fashions and wearing accessible brands. Catherine also knows how to make a glamorous entrance wearing stunning, figure flattering gowns to charity galas and red carpet events, and she does it all effortlessly.

The Duchess will appear on the cover of the magazine's September issue available at newsstands, but it's Oscar nominee, Jessica Chastain's cover that will be delivered to subscribers' mailboxes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jessica made the list for reasons none other than her elegance and striking red-carpet looks including wearing breathtaking designs from Zac Posen, Gucci and Elie Saab.

Other style stars on this year's list include fashion designers, models and a bevy of royals: Stella McCartney, Diane Kruger, Alice + Olivia designer, Stacey Bendet, Erika  Bearman aka Oscar PR Girl, Jay Z, Matt Lauer and Prince Harry.

Which cover do you prefer? Who would you have liked to see make the list?

New York Fashion Week: Jenny Packham

Jenny Packham's Spring 2012 runway show was filled with signature glamour and femininity. It is easy to see why the Duchess of Cambridge is such a fan of the British designer's elegant evening gowns. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Asymmetrical hemlines fluttered down the runway on sheer flowing gowns and cocktail dresses in a palette of lime green, tangerine and azure blues. Swarovski crystals, adorned flapper style mini-dresses and intricate floral details embellished sweeping floor length light-as-air gowns. 

 

We have a feeling that a few of these dazzling dresses will make their way to several celebrity closets.

Ordinary World?

While it's hard to imagine anyone criticizing the newly-minted Duchess of Cambridge for her style choices, it appears to be happening more frequently.

British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood reportedly told the "Sunday Times Magazine," "Her image is 'ordinary woman.' I just think she should be an extraordinary woman, wherever she gets her clothes from.'"

Westwood went on to call Kate's eye make-up "hard."

Others in the industry have come out against the Duchess' decision to re-wear outfits as well.

Middleton recently topped the "Vanity Fair Best-Dressed List."

What do you think? Does Kate need a fashion fix or is Westwood being too harsh? Sound off on Twitter @FashionWrap!
