Her Royal Highness, Kate, makes international best-dressed list
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has another title under her fashionable belt: She's gained entry into the exclusive "International Best Dressed" set.
The honor, courtesy of Vanity Fair, comes as little surprise: Her personal style has been of global significance (no joke) since the engagement of then-Kate Middleton to longtime beau Wills was announced last November. The common-born brunet proceeded to please critics and the masses alike with a nonstop showing of, like, insane loveliness.
Wearing go-to designers including Issa and Jenny Packham, brilliant pops of color from Diane Von Furstenberg and iconic dresses from Alexander McQueen -- witness her recent "Brits to Watch" look, above far right -- Prince William's wife ranks with world-leading socialites, actresses, tastemakers and others including fellow royal Princess Charlene of Monaco, first ladies Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, and actresses Carey Mulligan and Tilda Swinton.
On the manly side, Justin Timberlake and Colin Firth made the list as well.
