Kate Middleton and Prince Harry are style gods
British royals Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry led Vanity Fair's international best-dressed list on Tuesday, following a year in which all eyes have been on Britain's young members of the monarchy.
Kate will grace the September cover of the magazine's newsstand editions after a year of setting style trends and wowing fashionistas with her mix of designer and high street wardrobe choices in her first year of official duties.
The magazine said Prince Charles spent an estimated US$55,000 (RM172,000) on designer clothes for his new daughter-in-law but that she declined the services of a royal dresser.
Instead, she selected her own wardrobe from designers such as Alice Temperley and Alexander McQueen, as well as stores like Topshop and TK Maxx.
With Prince William off the list, fashion watchers wondered if his dad should offer to hire him a stylist. Prince Harry, 27, led the best-dressed men, making his first appearance on the style list.
The Vanity Fair best-dressed rundown is voted for by more than 2,000 fashion industry professionals, journalists and tastemakers, as well as the best-dressed Hall of Fame members.
Kate and Harry weren't the only royals to be included.
The women's list acknowledged best-dressed veterans Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser of Qatar and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, as well as first-timer Gucci model Charlotte Casiraghi, who is fourth in line to the Monaco throne.
Meanwhile, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain (The Help), who became a red carpet staple during this year's awards season, made her debut on the list for her bold fashion choices, including her Alexander McQueen dress at the Oscars. She will grace the September cover for subscribers edition.
