Britain's Duchess Catherine has inspired a range of nail polishes.
The 29-year-old beauty - who married Prince William in a lavish ceremony at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29 - has become well-known for her style choices since rising to prominence.
Now, nail varnish creator Essie Weingarten has confirmed her new polishes have been made with her in mind.
Discussing her new shades Lady Like and Glamour Purse, Essie told InStyle Magazine: "The type of woman whose handbag speaks volumes about her, that's who inspired me with this collection.
"Like Kate Middleton when she met President Obama wearing a classic beige dress, black heels and a matching black clutch. It was just so ladylike. I love the look of classic, fashionable and timeless."
It is the second time this week Catherine - whose sister Pippa has also become a style icon - has been praised for her look, actress Sarah Jessica Parker has also claimed she is someone she thinks of as always getting her fashion choices right.
Asked who her style icons were in a webchat, Sarah Jessica said: "So many. Ingrid Bergman and the way Kate Moss dresses and the Duchess of Cambridge."
