Her pre-baby wardrobe won the fash pack's approval so it comes as no surprise to hear the Duchess of Cambridge has been crowned the most inspiring fashion icon mother - even if she did give birth just two weeks go. Yes, it seems the Kate Effect is stronger than ever as the royal, who gave birth to Prince George on 22nd July, has been named as the star who gets most new mums hitting the shops.
Kate Middleton recieved overwhelming support in the poll carried out by fashion discount website FashionPerks.co.uk which asked its customers to vote for the most - and least inspiring - celebrity mothers when it comes to style. She might have only been seen once or twice in her new mum gear but apparently that's all it takes. 'It's testament to how dearly the British public hold the Duchess of Cambridge to their hearts,' said the website's Max Bramwell. 'She's only been a mother for a matter of weeks, and had barely been seen in public since the birth, yet people are still drawing on her example for inspiration.'
Indeed, there's been a surge in sales of polka dot dresses after Kate stepped out in that adorable Jenny Packham dress when unveiling her son to the world. And even Prince George is proving to be a style icon - at just three days old, he was already making his own impact on the retail world by causing a stampede for the swaddle he was wrapped in.
Are these the most style-inspiring mums?
But who else made the yummy mummy grade? Angelina Jolie landed in the top five thanks to her simple and chic ensembles as did, err, Amanda Holden. Meanwhile Kim Kardashian made both the best AND worst dressed lists due to her opinion-splitting pre-baby wardrobe - although the fact she hasn't yet been seen in public since giving birth to baby Nori means she might surprise us yet.
On the other side of the scale, spare a thought for poor Kerry Katona who was named least inspiring celebrity mum on the fashion front. Katie Price also appeared at the wrong end of the list, as did Sharon Osbourne who, to be fair, is much older than the rest of the bunch, not to mention an actual grandmother.
