In the past, Middleton has been criticized for wearing outfits that would be better suited for the queen, not a spry, young duchess like herself. The press first dubbed Middleton's fashion choices as somewhat dull, lacking the chic, youthful style that we've come to expect from her today. When Middleton first debuted on the royal scene at an event in 2006, she wore a red wool coat and large black Philip Treacy hat, an ensemble that many considered to be far too mature for someone her age. As Middleton progressed through her 20s, she came into her own sense of style, wearing classic patterns, tailored garments and colors that complement her skin tone, hair, eyes and most of all, her age.
