Happy Birthday, Kate Middleton! The Duchess of Cambridge is turning 32 on Thursday, January 9, and to help celebrate her birthday, we’re looking back at her most stylish moments from the past year. From gorgeous gowns to chic maternity looks, Kate’s fashion sense is one to be rivaled.
Being one of the most photographed women in the world, there’s no surprise that Kate has been turning heads with her immaculate style. Even when she stepped out of the hospital for the first time with her son Prince George, knock-off versions of the Jenny Packham polka-dot dress she wore sold out within hours in both the U.K. and around the world. Seriously, Kate Middleton needs her own cover on Vogue, as that prestigious honor has been long overdue.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what 2014 has in store for Kate. Could it be another pregnancy? More charity work and photo opportunities? Check out our photos below and let us know what you think!

We take a look back at her most stylish moments in the past year...
The Dress That Sparked the Bump Watch 2 of 9
The Duchess of Cambridge, aka Kate Middleton, displays her baby bump as she is seen arriving at Hope House in South London. Kate started her entire 2013 bump watch campaign with this MaxMara wrap dress in February of last year. Word on the street is that the dress sold out within hours of her wearing it!
Her Recycled Coat for St. Patty’s Day 3 of 9
Kate and Prince William attended The Irish Guards St. Patrick's Day Parade in London this past year. Don't you just love her smile? She wore this same green Emilia Wickstead dress coat to the St. Patrick's Day Parade in 2012 as well. Who doesn't love a star that recycles her wardrobe?!
Bringing Back Polka Dots 4 of 9
Prince William, Catherine, and Prince Harry attended the launch of the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden in Hertfordshire. If there's one person who is responsible for bringing back polka dots, that would be Kate of course! Needless to say, this Topshop dress sold out within hours in the U.K.
Her First Postpartum Dress 5 of 9
Kate Middleton and Prince William appeared from the hospital to greet the press and reveal their newborn son at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Knock-offs of this Jenny Packham dress sold out within hours of her wearing it! That's what you call the Kate Middleton Effect.
Her First Red Carpet Appearance After the Birth of Prince George 6 of 9
Kate arrived at the inaugural Tusk Awards at the Royal Society in London in this stunning sequined frock. This was her first royal and official appearance after giving birth. Doesn't she look stunning in sequins? It's another Jenny Packham creation, which is obviously one of Kate's favorite designers.
Another Recycled Dress! 7 of 9
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge seen arriving at the offices of Only Connect, the crime prevention charity, in London. Kate made waves for recycling this Orla Kiely dress from a previous appearance two years earlier. Got to love a woman who isn't afraid of wearing the same thing twice! But then again, we've all got that one item in our closets that we don't mind wearing over and over again, no matter how many years we've owned it, right?
A Vision in White 8 of 9
Kate Middleton and Prince William attend the UK premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London. I absolutely LOVE this Roland Mouret gown — another recycled dress! She looks so stylish and clean in this white floor-length gown and the accessories are a perfect 10.
Lace, anyone? 9 of 9
Prince William and Kate Middleton attend the screening of David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Alive 3D in London. I absolutely love this black lace Alice Temperley dress on Kate. She looks so winter elegant and flawless, as always! We can't wait to see more of her in 2014!
