She’s done it again! The Duchess of Cambridge landed atop the U.K. Harper’s Bazaar best-dressed list today, just three months after earning a spot on Vanity Fair‘s list of style stars. The latest honor was bestowed by a panel that included designers Antonio Berardi and Roksanda Ilincic (a Kate favorite), milliner Philip Treacy and Bazaar editors Kim Hersov and Lucy Yeomans.

“Catherine’s incredible style evolution has gripped us all,” Yeomans explains on harpersbazaar.com.uk. “She gave us the year’s — if not the century’s — most thrilling fashion moment at the royal wedding, and is shaping up as an amazing ambassador for British designers and the high street.”

Singer Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine landed in second place — “She’s fairytale,” writes Ilincic — followed by British stars including Kate Moss, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson, Alexa Chung and Stella McCartney. All in all, 20 women were included on the list.

Over the course of the past year, the Duchess has earned praise for the way she recycles her wardrobe, supports emerging designers and shops accessibly at stores like Topshop. She earned a spot on PEOPLE’s best-dressed list this year, as well.

Love all three of them, they are all stylish and beautiful. It’s nice to have proper young women on People’s website. Thank you!!!

P.S. I feel that lately Emma Watson is the most fashionable of the three. :-)

All the ladies look lovely but Kate has class and style that cannot be topped.

I like Kate’s style. It’s very clean and classy. Considering Kate is the only one of the three not to have a stylist and always looks wonderful, she’s the most stylish for me.

Emma, hands down. She’s the only healthy body type out of the three and her style is not forced. She’s also the prettiest! She’s growing into a nice young lady. God, I hope she stays that way. So sick of these other so called roll models!

Either Kate or Emma for me. I like how Kate dresses in a classic simple way then I really like how Emma takes risks in fun outfits. I like Keira but her fashion doesn’t stand out to me.

Treacy, a famed British milliner, was responsible for several hats at the royal wedding in April, and recently helped elect the Duchess of Cambridge as the U.K.’s best-dressed star. […]
