When Kate Middleton and Prince William first stepped out to announce they would wed, the whole world spied Kate's engagement ring (which was previously Princess Diana's) and took in her coordinating, gorgeous, royal blue Issa wrap dress. From that moment on, it was clear to all royal watchers that Wills' future wife was a style icon in the making. Years later, Kate still turns heads with her style choices, which are usually prim and proper but sometimes get a little more daring.

No one would argue that Kate Middleton always dresses appropriately for all of her duties as the Duchess of Cambridge. But the Duchess of Cambridge is also considered a bona fide style icon. And she's earned that label by combining classic looks with adventurous prints or stepping out in memorable, chic, and notably casual ensembles.  

From her three, history-making, post-birth appearances on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary's Hospital in London to her royal travels around the globe, red carpet events, and moments when she was devoting her time to charitable causes, Kate has managed to find the absolute perfect outfit. 

The Duchess' looks often make headlines, thanks to the fact that they're modern and perfect for a princess. Here, 40 favorite, fashion-forward looks Kate has absolutely knocked out of the park.
