Kate Middleton is Vogue's 100th Anniversary Cover Star

On its 100th birthday, British Vogue revealed it will celebrate with one of the world's most stylish women: Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge will grace the cover of the centenary issue of the fashion bible, as announced on the magazine's social media accounts yesterday.

The June 2016 issue will celebrate the "the faces and fashions of the century" - and who better to lead the charge than Kate.

Since she first emerged in the press as Prince William's other half, we've watched on as the girl from Berkshire, England conquered fashion choice after fashion choice.

The impact she has on the industry was even given a name: "The Kate Middleton Effect".


The term was coined to describe the phenomenon in which everything Kate wore basically turned to gold for the producer. 

From her wedding dress and maternity clothes, to her hairstyles and footwear - everything Kate has donned subsequently rocketed to the top of must-have lists worldwide. 


For her Vogue debut, the Duchess was photographed by Josh Olins, who has also captured fellow Brits Emma Watson and the Beckhams. 

The 10-page shoot located at the royal's Norfolk home is the first time Kate has consented to a magazine spread, Vogue UK reports.

The Duchess is taking another leaf out of the book of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who appeared on the cover of Vogue four times, the Telegraph UK reports.

The centenary issue of British Vogue will hit news stands on May 5.
