Marie-Chantal had a charmed upbringing: Her father headed a multi-billion-dollar duty-free shopping business, and as a teenager, she worked for Andy Warhol. On her wedding day, Marie-Chantal wore a pearl-encrusted Valentino gown. She later combined her business-savvy roots with her love for fashion and started her own children’s clothing line.
Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark
This princess’s style is world-renowned, topping Kate Middleton’s in a recent poll of the world’s most stylish royal, just barely. Adding to her awards, Mary made it on Vanity Fair’s annual ‘International Best-Dressed List’ just a few years ago and is Patron of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

Princess Beatrice of York
After wearing what may go down as the world’s craziest fascinator to the Royal Wedding, Princess Beatrice caught a ton of flak. But she took that as a style lesson, promptly hired a stylist, and has been wowing the world with her demure yet elegant style ever since.
Charlene, Princess of Monaco
The Princess of Monaco has only held her royal title since 2011, but she’s already become a permanent fixture in the fashion world, favoring classic looks and neutral beige and black. A former Olympic competitive swimmer, Charlene wore a Giorgio Armani Privé wedding dress and counts Armani and Akris among her favorite designers.
