What's a little more scrutiny?
Arguably the most-watched fashion icon – certainly the most closely followed expectant mother – in the world, the Duchess of Cambridge has been placed under the microscope of U.K. Vogue for its February issue.
Before determining the key to her "feminine and traditional" style (at least, before her baby bump), the publication first categorizes Kate's look as "International Sleekness."
Just how close is the mag's inspection? Close enough to note exactly how often and the manner in which Kate, who turns 31 Jan. 9, holds her clutch bags: hands together, 48% of the time; one-handed, 31%. Not to mention, post blowout her royal ringlets measure one inch.

Top designers would fall over each other to dress her. And she favors exquisite labels like Alexander McQueen and Alice Temperley.
But when the Duchess of Cambridge saw a new dress laid out in her room at her hotel in the Solomon Islands, she switched plans and put it on.
The bright pink and orange batik gown was a gift from the Solomon Islands government and Kate only saw it just before she was set to change and head out again for an official banquet.
"She loved it," an aide says of the dress, which came from a shop called Island Print.

She stands behind her 'do. And so does her man.
When Miley Cyrus Tweeted a photo showing off an edgy new pixie haircut on Sunday, many passionate fans responded unhappily, prompting the 19-year-old to defend her new look.
"My dad @billyraycyrus used to tell me 'opinions are like a** holes every body has one,' " Cyrus Tweeted Monday. "LOVE my hair <3 feel so happy, pretty, and free."
She also shared some hard-won wisdom with fans after most of the furor over her haircut subsided.

Short for summer!
Charlize Theron has kept her buzz cut under wraps until now, finally debuting her new look this week.
The new mom still looks gorgeous, bald and beaming while holding her infant son, Jackson.
It's a far cry from the long locks Theron, 36, sported as the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman, but the short style is not merely to beat the heat.
The actress brought out the razor for her new role as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, which she's currently filming in Namibia.

The Duchess of Cambridge makes stylish statements over and over again – often literally.
Not one to shy away from recycling her favorite pieces or shopping her closet, she's been photographed in familiar and envy-worthy fashions since before her wedding.
But sometimes her high-end attire can come with a price tag – a $55,000 one, a new U.K. report suggests. And, the story says, her father-in-law, Prince Charles, foots the bill.

What's old was new for Kate this weekend: the Duchess of Cambridge attended a wedding in a Lincolnshire, England, and once again recycled her wardrobe.
Changing up her formula a bit, Kate pulled elements from four outfits, blending them into one.
Underneath her Katherine Hooker greige dress coat (below, right) – first worn about a year ago at the official Order of the Garter service – the Duchess wore a Jenny Packham watercolor floral frock (below, center), which she'd originally worn to Prince William's polo match in Los Angeles last year.

Is Pippa Middleton now taking her fashion cues from her big sister?
At the very least, they both seem particularly fond of a certain wrap dress from Issa.
Kate wore it in royal blue on the day of her engagement announcement in 2010. And now Pippa has dazzled in a raspberry version, which she wore to a friend's wedding in Scotland this weekend.
Pippa, 28, rounded out her look with a floral hat, a black clutch and black suede heels.

Sure she's still shopping at her favorite King's Road boutiques, but the Duchess of Cambridge is making a marked move toward a sexier, more daring style – and she's leaving quite an impression.
"High-level glamour is becoming more of the norm for Kate due to her role," her stylist pal Nikki Pennie, editor-at-large of StyleHaul, says in the new issue of PEOPLE. "She is becoming more playful, putting her hair in gorgeous updos to complement certain dresses. She is clearly enjoying the process and becoming more confident."
