But one name that noticeably failed to make the cut is sister-in-law Kate Middleton.
Despite the pair both sharing a love of designers Alexander McQueen and Emilia Wickstead, Meghan has stormed ahead in the fashion stakes.
Meghan notably stood out for her love of the power suit and off-the-shoulder dresses.

She rarely puts a step wrong either. Everyone was in awe when Meghan appeared unannounced at the British Fashion Awards in a black Givenchy velvet gown to present an award.
Kate however found herself being slammed in October for wearing the “worst ever” Alexander McQueen dress to a Buckingham Palace state banquet.

And at least she can console herself by being named among Tatler’s most-stylish back in August.
