5 Ways to Dress Like Kate

She captured the heart of Prince William and the eyes of the fashion-conscious. "Chic", "elegant" and "trendsetting" are just a few words associated with Kate Middleton's choice of wardrobe. It's no wonder the Duchess of Cambridge was named to this year's Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List.

Here's a fun way to emulate the great Kate's style—by dressing up your nails in CND colours that mimic five of the stylish dresses she wore during the Royals' Tour to Canada in July 2011.

Check out these fabulous looks from Kate and the fetching nail colours to use to make your manicure a royal sensation.

1. Casual Duchess. At a barbecue and reception in Ottawa for Canadian youth, Kate wears a black and white bird print dress from Issa, one of her favourite designers.
Wear the look on your nails with: CND Blackjack (#538)

2. O Canada! Kate wears her gorgeous white Reiss Nanette dress (the same one she wore for her official engagement photo) but this time, she adds dramatic pops of colour by accompanying her look with a red maple leaf fascinator and red pumps.
Wear the look on your nails with: CND Relay Red (#524)

3. Fashionable fireworks. Kate steals the spotlight in a purple V-neck Jersey dress, another Issa London creation, while at the Canada Day evening celebrations in Ottawa.

4. Ooh la la. Kate visited Quebec City wearing a royal blue dress with lace overlay and an elegant slit in the skirt by Canadian designer Erdem.
