The ultimate Catherine style guide: Inside the Princess of Wales’ closet


From A to Z – or, from Alexander McQueen to Zara – we track Princess Catherine’s style and here’s a peek into her closet via her favourite designers.

From the time Catherine joined the British royal family and became the Princess of Wales until today.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN – Known for sophistication with an edge, Alexander McQueen, these days headed by creative designer Sarah Burton, has seamlessly made its way into the Princess of Wale’s wardrobe. The royal has worn countless McQueen designs, most famously her iconic lace royal wedding dress.

ALICE TEMPERLEY Temperley London has been the royal’s choice for numerous occasions ranging from casual country moments to major black tie affairs. “The Princess of Wales does wear our clothes a lot, but it’s not planned. You don’t know if she is going to wear something until the photographs appear,” designer Alice Temperley told us.

CATHERINE WALKER – One thing that Kate Middleton and her late mother-in-law Princess Diana share their adoration for the British fashion house Catherine Walker. Diana often wore the brand for official engagements, and Catherine has followed suit by choosing tailored Catherine Walker looks for high-profile outings.

ERDEM – Best known for fabulously feminine florals, Erdem, founded by Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu in 2005, always has Princess Catherine in blossoming form. But Catherine isn’t the only royal fan of the brand – Princess Eugenie wore an Erdem dress for her official engagement announcement and soon-to-be royal Meghan Markle is also known to wear the label.

DOLCE & GABBANA – While Catherine of course flies the flag for British fashion, it seems a very special Italian design duo has also won over her heart. The royal often steps out in day dresses, coats and evening looks from Dolce & Gabbana, with their lace creations among her faves. The admiration is clearly mutual, with the designers unveiling a Kate-inspired dress in 2017

GLOBAL DESIGNERS – The Princess of Wales may have her go-to favourites. Still, we also appreciate it when the royal ventures out in designers, whether international or relatively unknown, from countries around the world. Here, left to right, she wears a skirt by Bhutanese weaver Kelzang Wangmo, a dress from Australian fashion label Zimmerman, and a look by India-born designer Saloni.

GOAT – Some of Princess Kate’s favourite pieces are simple and chic coats and dresses by British brand Goat, which has greatly boosted visibility over the years thanks to their royal fan. The label is one the royal loves to wear and has carried her through her royal engagements, even during her three pregnancies.
