It’s been an exciting year for the Duchess of Cambridge: a royal wedding, a North American Tour and now, a spot on Vanity Fair‘s International Best-Dressed List. Her first appearance on the list came in 2008, and a whirlwind of fashion successes since has earned her this illustrious second nod. Kate has gained worldwide recognition for her signature mix of high and low fashion, recycling looks, wearing accessible labels and dressing down for daily tasks. Though she also knows how to make a glamorous entrance — a skill that will serve her well as a member of the royal family.

Some other highlights of the annual list include President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama, named together as a well-dressed couple; expectant French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy; and newly married Princess Charlene of Monaco. From Hollywood’s royal ranks come actors Justin Timberlake, Colin Firth and Carey Mulligan, plus musicians like Lady Gaga and Janelle MonĂ¡e.

Lady Gaga on the best dressed list??? that might be the funniest thing I have ever read!

Kate – absolutely.

Lady Gaga – HAHA. List has become invalid.

Am I the only one that finds Kate’s style completely bland? There’s a difference between “classic” and “boring.”

Kate of course is on this list, but Lady Gaga come on. she’s not a fashion icon she’s a girl who likes to be over the top with clothing and not good over the top

Kate of course is on this list but Lady Gaga give me a break. Lady Gaga is way to over the top and not a good over the top, dressing in a meat suit does not make you a fashionista last time I checked

1st let me say that I think Kate is absolutely gorgeous…but…is it me or is she getting skinnier and skinnier? She’s looking too thin. I think she should gain a little more weight.
2nd Lady Gaga pn a best dressed list? This is the same woman who showed up to an awards ceremony with a meat dress and acessories. This is what they classify as best dressed? Hmmm…suspect!

Diane on

Oh This woman again! I hate to see her name and photos everywhere I go… (DONT TELL ME NOT TO CLICK, IT IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS)

LBW on

Kate is class all the way. Gaga is a joke.

Stacey on

I would be offended if I was put on the same list with Lady Gaga! Barf! Kate is much better dressed than that clown!

Stacy on

Who in the world at Vanity Fair thought Lady Gaga is a best dressed people needs to clean their glasses off. That is the craziest thing I have every heard.
