Style Spotlight: The Duchess of Cambridge

Happy Saturday!

Can you believe it's been a year since the Royal Wedding?!
I still remember the excitement of last year like it was just yesterday! ;)

In honor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's first wedding anniversary, I thought it'd be nice to start my Style Spotlight posts with the most photographed woman on the planet: The Duchess of Cambridge.

So, let's take a look back at Her Royal Highness' fashionable year!
(Not all of the Duchess' outfits since getting married are included, to do so would make this post longer than it already is, haha!)

Coats (& Hats!):

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge leaves Sandringham Church after the traditional Christmas Day service at Sandringham on December 25, 2011 in King's Lynn, England.  The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh traditionally lead the royals in attending a church service at Sandringham Church on Christmas Day. It is the Duchess of Cambridge's first Christmas at Sandringham after her marriage to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge in April of this year. This year the Duke of Edinburgh missed the service as he is in Papworth Hospital after having cardiac surgery to fit a stent in his coronary artery.

Greens & Grays:

LOVE this dress....LOVE the Duchess of Cambridge!duchess of cambridge:::Pinned ImageDuchess of Cambridge

Blues (& one with turquoise accents!):



Look at the woman in the background in the last photo... doesn't her outfit look similar to the one the Duchess wore to the Gary Barlow concert at the Royal Albert Hall? Haha, cool! ;)

Ever since her engagement, I think the Duchess of Cambridge always looks so beautiful and so impeccably dressed.
It seems like she never has a bad hair day, or a bad photo for that matter... but then again, being a princess does mean having to be close to perfect at all times -- she even looks great playing field hockey!

It would be amazing to raid the Duchess' closet, don't you think?

To name my favorite looks from the Duchess of Cambridge would take forever, so I think you guys should just tell me your favorites and we'll talk about it in the comments! Good plan, right?! ;)

Do you have a favorite Duchess Catherine look/outfit?
Anyone watching Royal Wedding replays/specials?

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

    She always looks so put together. My favorite outfit that she wore would probably be her wedding gown. LOL.
    Oh and the lavender gown she wore when she was here in LA!
