Her elegant, refined style has already sparked copycat imitations the world over. So it is little surprise that Kate Middleton's name has been revealed as the top fashion buzzword of the past year.
She replaces Lady Gaga, whose controversial and attention-seeking red carpet looks could not be more different.
The statistics were revealed yesterday in a new survey by The Global Language Monitor, which analyses word usage trends around the world.
Changing tastes: A regal-looking Kate Middleton (l), has been crowned the the world's top fashionista ahead of style rebel Lady Gaga (r), who was last year's highest-ranking fashion buzzword
It revealed how the future princess now reigns over its annual list of top fashion buzzwords, which features top style topics and trends.
The Paparazzi singer rocketed to the top of the last year's list thanks to her penchant for ripped fishnets, revealing leotards, colourful hairpieces and a string of outrageous, barely-there stage costumes.
But even her controversial meat dress, worn at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, wasn't enough to cement the star's title at the top for a second year when compared to Miss Middleton's more refined fashion sense, suggesting a drastic change in taste among the image-concious.
The 29-year-old has been thrust into the fashion spotlight since the announcement of her engagement to the Prince of Wales back in November.
Copies of the royal blue Issa dress she wore that day flew out of stores, selling out in a mere 24 hours.
And her endorsement of British labels such as Temperley London, Reiss and the little-known Libelula have already benefited from her support.
Top trends: Sheer fabrics, as seen on Kimberly Wyatt (l) are a major new trend, as are shirtdresses, a favourite with Tallulah Willis (c). Emma Watson (r) has helped support sustainable fashion with her line for People TreeInterest in Ms. Middleton's fashion choices is only heating up as her April 29to the British prince approaches.
Speculation over who will design the gown, and what is will look like is rife in the fashion world, as we await her walk down the aisle.
But the ladies aren't the only ones big buzzwords for the moment - 'Sheer', the trend for translucent fabrics, trail the fashion icons at third place.
It's followed by 'shirt dresses' and 'sustainable style', a growing trend of clothing made of recycled fabrics, which trail at four and five, respectively.
Global Language Monitor's list comes just in time for the February, 10 launch of New York fashion week, which kicks off an international calendar of shows that includes London, Milan and Paris, a string of high-fashion events which will no doubt set new trends around the world.
The words in the Global Language Monitor survey were chosen from the world fashion media, nominated by key fashionistas from around the world and tracked for their frequency and usage in English-speaking media outlets worldwide.
