5 iconic times Kate Middleton has worn Chanel

The Princess of Wales is a fan of the french luxury Maison.

Coco Chanel once said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

The newly styled Princess of Wales is proving to be just as much as a fashion icon as her late mother in law Princess Diana before her, each look Kate wears more memorable than the last.

Yesterday she visited the Copper Box Arena in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, where she and her husband the Prince of Wales took part in an event called Coach Core. For the occasion the former Duchess of Cambridge wore a vintage blue tweed jacket by Chanel which was first released in 1995. (Iconic.) As the Princess becomes more established in her role, her attitude towards occasion dressing has evolved into a refined regality. We couldn’t have imagined her rocking an electric blue vintage Chanel number at the beginning of her tenure as royal girlfriend, but now that Kate has matured into a bonafide style icon and future Queen it couldn’t seem a more appropriate move. This isn’t the first time she’s championed the French luxury maison however. Although Kate tends to favour British brands (for obvious reasons) she has on several occasions donned the Coco Chanel-founded label.
