Alright, let's face it ... we all wish we could live inside of Kate Middleton's closet, right? From her signature coat dresses to the most elegant ballgowns one could ever imagine, Kate knows her way around the fashion department of a store. However, we have a good feeling that the Duchess of Cambridge isn't getting those gowns of hers at a store -- otherwise we'd all be sporting the Kate Middleton look if we could afford it. No, these dresses are the work of some pretty amazing designers, and it's all part of Kate's amazing power to look elegant and classic no matter what she puts on ... and no matter what even she's attending.

We don't know what kind of special powers Kate has, but we wish that she would share her secrets with the rest of us. Sure, this duchess can do casual royal outfits better than anyone, but what we really love is when she has the opportunity to get all dolled up for an event. And yes, sometimes there are tiaras and family jewels involved. 

Yes, Kate is one lucky royal gal, and we could only dream of having a closet like the duchess's. Over her eight years as a royal lady, Kate has tried just about every style of gown known to man, and we're here to tell you that she's has looked absolutely amazing in every single one of them. We really don't know how she does it, but everything that Kate puts on instantly looks unbelievably classic and chic. Just because we can't necessarily have Kate's closet doesn't mean we can't appreciate it, so here are 20 of her most elegant ensembles. 

  • Date Night Red

    Kate always brings her A-game for date night with Prince William! We know this was an official engagement that they were attending, but we're sure Wills was having a hard time keeping his eyes off of his wife that night. How could he not??

  • Creamy Lace

    Even when Kate isn't wearing long ballgowns, she still manages to look super classy. Plus, this duchess is a huge fan of lace, and it's pretty easy to see why. She can't go wrong with lacy cutouts like this!

  • Emerald Beauty

    Kate could wear a dress with every color on the rainbow on it, and she would still look amazing. Out of all the colors she's worn, we have to say that Kate might look best in this dark shade of green. Keep the emerald coming, Kate!

  • Beautifully Bedazzled

    Jewels have never looked so good! On the rest of us, a jeweled gown would look tacky at best, but on Kate, well ... let's just say that she has the power to make everything (including herself) look like a million bucks.

  • Light Lavender

    Doesn't Kate look like a Grecian goddess in this dress? If someone told us that Kate Middleton was the human embodiment of Aphrodite, we'd believe them -- no questions asked. It's time to bring this gown back, Kate!

  • Icy Blue

    Now, do we think Kate picks out her own gowns, or is this the work of a personal stylist? We're sure she gets some royal pointers, but if we had to guess, we'd say that Kate's ensembles are 99% the work of Miss Middleton herself.

  • Meeting With Dignitaries

    As part of her royal duties, Kate meets with a lot of important people during her royal engagements, so she naturally needs the right wardrobe to get the job done. We have a good feeling that this is something that Kate never had an issue with.

  • Ruby Red

    Although we're sure Kate and Will would have preferred a romantic evening alone instead of attending an event, hey, they'll take what they can get, right? Plus, how could William really complain when his wife showed up wearing this beautiful pink gown?
