As you'll know if you've been following us (or any fashion news) of late, it's British Vogue's Centenary year. For its special June issue there has been much speculation about whom editor, Alexandra Shulman, would put on the coveted cover. Personally, I thought she might go with Kate Moss, or a well-known British actress. But, she's managed one better, and landed the one person surely all editors want on their magazine - the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
The shoot took place early in the year outdoors in the grounds of her Norfolk home, Anmer Hall. The photos were taken by top fashion photographer, Josh Olins and styled by Vogue's fashion director, Lucinda Chambers. Two sets of shots were taken - in one she's wearing and red and navy striped Petit Bateau t-shirt and Burberry jeans and in the other a Burberry coat with a Beyond Retro hat. In both she looks natural and relaxed.
All the shots were taken in partnership with The National Portrait Gallery in London, which will be showing the photos until 22nd May.
