Kate Middleton's Top 5 Post-Wedding Looks

Yahoo Contributor Network

Kate Middleton may be the new Duchess of Cambridge, but to me she's the new Queen of Style. Why? Just look at what she wears: Middleton is the master of wearing both low-end and couture designs with ease -- and fans (like me) flock to scoop up every last size of her favorite designs.

Middleton has made a number of appearances since her wedding to Prince William on April 29. I'm not sure how I can choose, but here are five of my favorite post-wedding looks.

Obama-Worthy Reiss

Middleton and hubby Wills welcomed President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to Buckingham Palace on May 24. Middleton showed off her impossibly-svelte body in a tan cap-sleeve Reiss bandage dress and effortless black heels. She was wearing the best accessory too: a post-honeymoon glow.

Want to buy the dress? Yeah, me too. Unfortunately, the dress is sold out all over the web. You'll have to shell out mega-bucks to get it off eBay.

Race-y Reiss

Middleton broke out the Reiss again in early June while taking in a race at Epsom Downs with the royal family. She wrote the $375 Reiss Peacock dress with matching heels from L.K. Bennett and jacket by Joseph. The dress, of course, is also sold out.

Gossip-y Sparkler

Middleton chose a $3,315 Jenny Packham dress for the June 9 Absolute Return for Kids (ARK) charity gala in London. The dress -- from the UK designer's spring 2011 collection -- was also worn by Blair Waldorf on "Gossip Girl," though it was Middleton that helped sell out the dress all over the web. This is the type of dress I've always imagined a princess wearing, so I was thrilled when she chose something so frilly and fun for an elegant night out.

Day-After Royal Blue

Middleton's Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress was an absolute hit -- and it looked even more gorgeous in person, believe me. However, I really liked Middleton's post-wedding dress that she wore to board a helicopter the day after the wedding.

The royal blue dress from European budget retailer Zara showed off Middleton's tanned-and-toned skin. Plus, it only cost $80, so it was totally affordable. Too bad it's -- you guessed it -- sold out.

Birthday Style

Alexander McQueen was once again the designer of the day when Middleton wore a a double-breasted cream McQueen jacket and a black hat for Queen Elizabeth's official 85th birthday celebration in early June. The look -- both stylish and conservative -- firmly shows me that Middleton takes her new royal role very seriously.
