The stylish Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her first child in spring next year, sits shoulder-to-shoulder alongside the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Emma Stone and Gemma Chan.

But one name that noticeably failed to make the cut is sister-in-law Kate Middleton.

Despite the pair both sharing a love of designers Alexander McQueen and Emilia Wick stead, Meghan has stormed ahead in the fashion stakes.

Meghan notably stood out for her love of the power suit and off-the-shoulder dresses.

Meanwhile Kate played it safe with a more conservative selection of midi skirts, block-colour dresses and coats, fabulous reports.

Fashion bible Vogue paid particular tribute to THE dress of the year - that Givenchy wedding gown - arguably Meghan's crowning fashion achievement to date.

They described the dress as "the biggest fashion commission of the year".

The fashion bible also commended the Duchess for combining high end designers like Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta with High Street brands.

She rarely puts a step wrong either. Everyone was in awe when Meghan appeared unannounced at the British Fashion Awards in a black Givenchy velvet gown to present an award.

Kate however found herself being slammed in October for wearing the "worst ever" Alexander McQueen dress to a Buckingham Palace state banquet.

Although earlier this month there was praise for her choice of a £1,450 Emilia Wickstead red plaid skirt paired with a Brora cashmere cardigan.
