Kate Middleton Lands Cover Of Vanity Fair's Best Dressed Issue

It's Kate Middletion's first magazine cover, and I say first because it’s the first time she’ll look vaguely like herself—not yellow toothed as The New Republic photoshopped her or in a “fan art illustration” as on a bizarre cover of South African Marie Claire.

Kate’s previously turned down Vogue, and has said that she doesn’t want to be known as a fashion plate. Too bad, says Vanity Fair: they used a picture of her from the Bafta dinner in Los Angeles earlier this month (remember the lavender McQueen and chandelier earrings?) so she’s the newsstand cover girl for their annual International Best Dressed Issue.

The Duchess of Cambridge is profiled in the issue, and sources “close to the royals” have divulged all sorts of wardrobe fun facts to VF for the article. Kate has 5 outfit changes per day, for one, which is more than Lady Gaga on a week day, and Prince William has purportedly spent around $55,000 on Kate’s clothes so far (she does have a ton of McQueen dresses, so that probably went pretty quick). She's a princess, though, and so that's sort of to be expected.

Middleton is joined on the Best Dressed list by Prince Harry, street style photographer Bill Cunningham, Jay-Z, Tom Brady, Fan Bingbing, and Princess of Monaco Charlotte Casiraghi.

Kate splits the cover privileges with Jessica Chastain, who graces the subscriber issue in a definitely posed picture. Kate will be on newsstands, for probably around 5 minutes, so if you want the Kate cover make sure to pre-order it through vanityfair.com.
