Kate Middleton voted best-dressed of 2022, Simone Ashley and Sophie Hermann also make list
LONDON, UK: Kate Middleton is no doubt a trend setter - be it dressing up for public occasions like Royal Ascot and the Platinum Jubilee or dazzling her admirers with her stylish ensembles while running errands.
LONDON, UK The 40-year-old "fashion queen" has been crowned number 1 in Tatler magazine's 25 Best Dressed, which honors glam looks worn by both men and women; the outlet gave special recognition to individuals who this year wore looks that nodded to the 1980s.

Kate's polka-dot Alessandra Rich dress at Royal Ascot in June was compared by the outlet to Julia Roberts' similarly stylish ensemble from a moment in the movie 'Pretty Woman' where she watches a polo game.
Kate's attire was also compared by keen royal fans to another timeless design from the 1980s worn by her deceased mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who sported a very identical ensemble to Royal Ascot in 1986.
Ballet dancer Francesca Hayward and 'Bridgerton' actress Simone Ashley are two more people praised for demonstrating fashionable sense in this year's edition.
Following are the top 10 celebrities who have made it to Tatler's list:
The 40-year-old Duchess of Cambridge, who supports British brands and businesses in her clothing choices, is unquestionably a fashion diva. In the spirit of sustainability, Kate is also noted to repurpose clothing and to promote high market manufacturers.
The Duchess really likes Alexander McQueen, and she has donned his creations multiple times, most famously at her marriage ceremony. Kate made an appearance at the Commonwealth Games this week wearing a stylish, white, £1,945 ($2,350) Alexander McQueen suit for the third time.
Kate has started wearing Alessandra Rich a lot lately, which might not be a coincidence considering how much her late mother-in-law's vintage-inspired creations resemble the designer's.
The Duchess caught everyone's attention at Royal Ascot this year with a polka-dot dress and a black hat that appeared to have been taken from Diana's closet.
Vimbai Masiyiwa is an entrepreneur who celebrates color and style in her outfit. The Zimbabwean businesswoman who owns the Batoka Hospitality Group frequently posts Instagram pictures wearing eye-catching outfits and hats.
Vimbai just shared a picture of herself on Instagram in an eye-catching yellow off-shoulder dress. "When you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine," the business tycoon wrote in the caption. She wore black stiletto heels with spikes to go with the outfit.
Vimbai is a genius fashionista when it comes to event wear; she's also the same with more informal looks and can put them together with flair.
Vimbai always dresses her finest for treks in the countryside, whether it be a white linen shirt and jeans ensemble or a flannel overshirt combined with Hunter wellington boots.
Freya Aspinall is a model and animal enthusiast in her late teens. Freya, the daughter of Donna Air and Damian Aspinall, who owns Howlett's Wildlife Park in Kent, shares the same affinity for animals and was brought up in a natural environment. She carries on the environmentalist legacy of her parents by working on international initiatives.
Despite leading an active and adventurous lifestyle, Freya still manages to find time to maintain her sense of fashion. The model, who is a client of the Storm modeling agency, has previously supported webshops like PrettyLittleThing. She is also rumored to prefer Charlotte Tilbury cosmetics.
To commemorate her mother's birthday, she recently shared a selfie of her and her mom on Instagram. Freya evoked the 1990s in one image by donning a maroon Dior T-shirt and low-rise white pants.
Sophie Hermann who rose to fame on the reality television program 'Made in Chelsea', came in at number four on the list. The 35-year-old German fashion designer from Munich frequently appears at prestigious events, grabbing attention in eye-catching hues and patterns.
She recently created an apparel collection that was influenced by the attire used at Oktoberfest, something she experiences annually in her homeland. Additionally, she has worked with online shops like Never Fully Dressed.
The faux fur trend is Sophie's fashion pet peeve, and she wishes it never returns. Sophie also humorously refers to herself as "The Duchess".
In fact, Sophie donned a green maxi dress with vibrant pink design to the Henley Royal Regatta only last month. Pink heels and a pink purse were her accessories for the ensemble, which were both bright in color.
Conor Gallagher, a 22-year-old midfielder for Chelsea FC, is placed first on the list of best dressed men. The publication claims that because of his dressed-down appearance, he consistently ranks in the fifth place when he isn't sporting a football uniform. In particular, his preference for labels like Fendi and Gucci set him apart from his peers in terms of style.
In his Instagram images, Conor can be seen accessorizing his shoulder-length brown hair with bandanas and baseball hats. On a recent family vacation, he wore swim trunks from the Italian design label, further demonstrating his love of Fendi.
Tamara Beckwith Veroni, a 52-year-old west London celebrity and the first "It Girl," is a well-known trend setter. Tamara has always been chic on the red carpet and possesses a keen sense of how to attract attention. She has experimented in journalism for British TV programs including 'Watchdog' and 'This Morning'.
The socialite described a few of the ensembles she donned in a number of her favorite pictures in a 2020 article for The Daily Mail. She sported a little T-shirt with a picture of Twiggy from the 1960s in one picture that was shot while she was at a Burberry event. She had carried it with her from Los Angeles.
Hamish Bowles, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, is yet another guy who made the list. In a traditional top hat and tails, the British fashion writer made a statement at the Met Gala this year. He wore a conventional suit and black velvet loafers with his initials "HB" stitched in gold. The fashionista donned a garland of brass leaves on his head as a nod to the Gilded Age concept of the occasion while using a cane and carried his top hat below one arm.
Hamish enjoys bright colors and patterns in images posted on his Instagram profile, which frequently go well with the opulent settings he frequents. Bypassing gender stereotypes about how men should dress, Hamish frequently wears clashing colors and flowery motifs.
As the major character in 'Sex Education' and the heroine of Bridgerton's second season, Simone Ashley is a popular presence in 2022. The 27-year-old actress is equally stunning off-screen and is well-known for taking the spotlight on the red carpet while wearing block colors. She stunned the audience when she showed up at the 2019 BAFTA Awards wearing a fuchsia Valentino jumpsuit.
At the 'Bridgerton' premiere, the female actress dazzled in a Gucci two-piece with black and white lace. Simone served as one of the Met Gala attendees who perfectly executed the Gilded Age theme in a black and bronze Moschino ensemble.
By incorporating a little ballerina elegance into her daily looks, ballet dancer Francesca Hayward, 30, managed to make Tatler's top 10. The brilliant ballerina, who received her training at the Royal Ballet School, made her feature film debut as Victoria the White Cat in the adaption of 'Cats'.
While not on stage, Francesca wears clothing with tulle to maintain her distinctive look. The skilled 30-year-old maintained a relatively grounded look while marketing her Hollywood debut, despite her many talents.
Joe Locke is an actor and the rising star of the LGBT Netflix series 'Heartstopper'. Joe dazzled in a pink suit this year while attending his 1st BAFTA award ceremony. The 18-year-old exuded sophistication while wearing a suit by Parisian fashion house Ami and accessorizing with a Swarovski pendant.
Joe has appeared in several picture sessions wearing pink outfits of milder hues, thus it seems that pink is his favorite color. Some of his followers have given him the nickname "The Bubblegum Prince" due to his love of the color.
