Kate Middleton has certainly made waves in the fashion world in the last year, but it seems we can now officially crown her the “queen of style” after top label Calvin Klein revealed plans to dress the duchess.

Francisco Costa, the head of design at Calvin Klein, has said he’d love to work with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, stating that she has “amazing hair” and “great teeth”.

And despite regularly being referred to as the ultimate English rose, with her rosy lips, flowing brunette locks and milky skin, Francisco told the Telegraph that Catherine embodies the image of the perfect “All-American girl” – making her perfect for the CK label.

He said: “She's very Calvin, when you think about it. She's athletic looking, with great teeth and amazing hair. In many ways she looks like an all American Girl.

“So, yes, I'm putting it out there: I'd love to dress her.”

The duchess, who married Prince William in April, has already demonstrated the level of power she has over the fashion world.

Catherine’s Alexander McQueen gown, which went on display at Buckingham Palace’s annual summer exhibition, has been credited with pulling in 20 per cent more visitors to the palace than in 2010.

The stunning long-sleeved ivory and white satin gazar lace dress, made by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, is now thought to have a value of around £1 million.

And outfits the duchess wears, whether high street or designer, often become must-haves for fashionistas, selling out in a matter of hours - such as the Reiss Shola dress Catherine wore to meet the Obamas in May this year.
