The Grazia Kate Middleton Lookbook: Pre-engagement

22 June 2011

From back before she was a Duchess, Grazia charts Kate Middleton's emerging style in the early days of her relationshiop with Prince William.

Katherine Hooker has long been a favourite of Kate's for smart tailored outerwear. Seen here at the Game Fair, Blenheim Palace in 2004, Kate works Hooker's sigantrue tailored tweed with her favourite knee-high boots, this pair being by Penelope Chilvers.

Losing the boots for summer 2009, Kate sports a blouse and skirt with ballet pumps (unusually, for the fan of jeans and dresses) which she accessorises with one of her favourite white Prada bags.

Back in skinny jeans and boots, Kate compliments this pared-down ensemble with a cropped midnight blue blazer with puff shoulders.

For a night out at Boujis in December 2007, Kate opts for a black lace skirt, black tights, suede boots and a belted velvet jacket.

In her favourite tasseled Penelope Chilvers boots at Gatcombe Park, in 2005, Kate also sports a molekskin jacket, Lola Rose pendant and washed skinny jeans.

It's roller Kate! In day-glo fancy dress for a charity event in September 2008. Is it VERY wrong that we love this?

Working the monochrome look, Kate opts for a more subdued ensemble for a night out at Boujis in August 2007.
