What a great way to finish up 2013!

Kate Middleton has had a stellar year (to put it mildly) which included giving birth to the future King of England to bouncing back to work without a hair out of place and now the Duchess of Cambridge has something else to brag about.

The 31-year-old has been named the world's Best Beauty Icon for the third year in a row, according to a poll in the UK.

Prince George's mum beat out celebrities such as Beyoncé, Brit model Cara Delevingne and even Angelina Jolie!

So how did Duchess Catherine pull off such a feat? Besides having a fabulous wardrobe, the Duchess knocked it out of the park with her subtle hair and makeup regiment that highlighted her natural beauty (and she wasn't afraid of showing off her greys!).

2013 was definitely the year of Kate Middleton and we hope that 2014 brings us even more amazing fashions and chic blow-outs from the stylish princess.
