Kate Middleton has definitely made a name for herself in the world of fashion. Admired by many for her incredible style, the Duchess of Cambridge always looks sleek and put-together, no matter the occasion. Here at Snap, we can’t get enough of her amazing style.

Whether she is wearing a designer dress on a red carpet or a pair of trousers at a polo match, Kate can do no wrong in our eyes. We love seeing her outfits, and we love that she isn’t afraid to wear an item more than once! (If we had her wardrobe, we’re pretty sure we would change outfits every hour of the day, just so we could wear it all!)

It’s clear that we aren’t the only ones who love Kate’s style- many of the items she has been seen wearing often sell out in-stores and online! Check out some of our favourite looks below.

 If we’re being honest, all of her outfits are our favourites, but we couldn’t fit all of the pictures into one post. So, we created a pinterest board instead, so be sure to take a peek!

All proceeds from the auction will go towards Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, an amazing organization that helps in the fight against Breast Cancer. Topshop partnered with the organization, which has raised over £13.5 million since being founded in 1996, in 2007 and has been actively involved ever since.

The auction will take place on eBay and will begin on 27 November. It will only last for 10 days, so be sure to bid while you can!

Get ready, Chanel fans! Photographer Douglas Kirkland has recently published a book containing rare and never before seen pictures of famed fashion designer Coco Chanel. The photos were taken in 1962 over a span of three weeks, when Kirkland spent 21 days documenting the designer’s day-to-day activities.

Included in the book are photos of Chanel in her Ritz apartment, on a trip to Versailles, and also gives a behind- the-scenes look at her preparing for a runway show.

The book also features commentary from Kirkland, who explains in detail his experience shadowing the French designer.

According to Vogue, Kirkland will be releasing two editions of the book: a standard version available for $50, and a deluxe limited edition that comes with a signed print, which you can pick up for $250.

The book is now available, so be sure to pick up a copy!

Anyone worried about the survival of the micro-industry that is known as Street-style Photography, don’t be. The menswear shows this January were heaving with camera-toting hopefuls, who swarmed across the pavements to capture the best of the editors’ outfits, inadvertently lending truth to a rather worn-out style cliche that a good look can stop traffic. (As it turns out, even a bad look can stop traffic, just as long as there are 30 people flinging themselves into the middle of a road trying to photograph it.)

All this is business as usual now – street style is as much part of the fashion show experience these days as entitled people complaining about inconsequential things – but there was an air of novelty at the AW16 shows in that many of the street-style photographers seemed to have espoused a sartorial aesthetic that we at Snap rather liked. Shades of grey, navy and black presumably intended to blend into the background, actually seemed refined and rather cool against the general backdrop of jazzy prints and statement outerwear. So we photographed the photographers. How postmodern.

Snap the Look

 

Presumably, in the Stone Age, if you wanted someone to come to your next event, you’d just grab them by the hair and drag them there. A little later on, we suppose, it became customary to write the details on a piece of card and slot it through someone’s letterbox. But now it’s 2016, and look how far we’ve come. This objet d’art, comprising a small, antique-looking box filled with a glittery snake envelope, tiger sticker, pink tissue paper and a series of glass slides, was hardly the kind of thing you felt like handing over to a doorperson. It was more like an heirloom that you instantly formed an intention to keep for years and years, and perhaps pass on to your children and grandchildren, who are guaranteed, like you, to have no idea what it’s all about, but nonetheless marvel at its beauty. The above example belongs to Snap Fashion, and we had to prise it from his hands with quite some force in order to photograph it.
