Many stylists, designers, and regular ladies like us have commended Kate Middleton's style over the past year, from her Alexander McQueen wedding gown to her sold-out everywhere blue Issa dress to her basic daily blazers and boots. Back in August the Duchess of Cambridge made Vanity Fair's 72nd annual international best-dressed list alongside France's stylish first lady, Carla Bruni, Lady Gaga, Tilda Swinton, Carey Mulligan, and Janelle Monaé. And the accolades keep rolling in.

Now Kate Middleton has received the top honor on Harper's Bazaar UK's best-dressed list. "Catherine's incredible style evolution has gripped us all," said editor Lucy Yeomans. "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." Middleton beat out celebs like Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Tilda Swinton, Florence Welch, of Florence + the Machine, Keira Knightley, Emma Watson, Stella McCartney, and Thandie Newton among others for the title. (No mention of Victoria Beckham? Hmm.)

Some of you have complained about all the attention the Duchess receives, saying her style is utterly boring and ordinary. Others of you have praised her for her reasonable purchases and down-to-earth look. But which of you feel Kate Middleton is worthy of a "best dressed" title? Would you want to raid her wardrobe? Let us know in the comments!
