Duchess of Cambridge best-dressed mother

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has been named the most inspiring fashion icon mother, beating Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian.

Despite Catherine only giving birth to her son Prince George two weeks ago, her style has already won the fashion pack's approval.

The 31-year-old scooped the top spot in a poll carried out by fashion discount website FashionPerks, which asked its customers to vote for the most inspiring celebrity mothers when it comes to style.

Catherine and her husband Prince William wowed the world when they sported matching light blue attire to show off their newborn son on July 23.

The outfit Catherine donned was a crepe de Chine dress created by British designer Jenny Packham for her first official public appearance with her child.

A spokesperson for the website, Max Bramwell, says Catherine received overwhelming support in their survey.

"It's testament to how dearly the British public hold the Duchess of Cambridge to their hearts," Max told Grazia Daily. "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."

Catherine beat a whole host of other stylish star moms including Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian to take the title.

Since Catherine stepped out in the polka dot number, there has been a surge in sales of similar dresses as new moms try to emulate her fashion choice.

The British royal's pull on the fashion world has also been seen through her offspring Prince George, who became a style icon in his own right at just a few days old.

The first child from the trendsetter sparked interest from the world's top designers such as

French fashion house Christian Dior, who created an entire Baby Dior collection around the idea of gifts suitable for the new royal.

“Like fairies leaning over a cradle, Baby Dior was inspired by Mr. Dior’s lucky charms to adorn the future newborn’s outfits,” the house said to WWD about their Petits bonheurs Collection.

“Cashmere knitting, coming in a beautiful leather suitcase, was twisted with four-leaf clovers to keep the baby warm. Each piece, embellished with embroideries and lace, was delicately handmade, requiring hours of work.”
