Surprise, surprise the Duchess of Cambridge has been crowned the number one most fashionable icon of modern time, according to a new survey that saw Victoria Beckham and Lady Gaga rank in the top 10.
Audrey Hepburn topped the list of the top 10 icons of all time, ahead of Princess Diana, Marilyn Monroe and Coco Chanel. Even Margaret Thatcher’s matronly style bagged her a top 10 place.
It’s true Kate Middleton hasn’t put a foot wrong since stepping in to the royal spotlight, especially in the style stakes. We think it’s fantastic that her demure fashion sense has trumped the more outlandish wardrobe choices of pop stars like Lady Gaga and Cheryl Cole.
It just goes to prove that fashion needn’t be eccentric to be recognised as stylish. At woman&home, we’re of the opinion that true style is all about knowing what suits you, and dressing in a way that ultimately makes you feel confident. We completely agree that Kate Middleton deserves to be at the top of the style charts, but what do you think?
Who would you include on your greatest style icons list? And are you a fan of the Duchess’ conservative style?
