According to a report in the Telegraph, London was just named fashion capital of the world for the second year in a row, and it has Duchess Kate Middleton to thank for the title.
"Kate Middleton has proved to be incredibly impactful on the British fashion brand," said Paul Payack, president of Global Language Monitor, the media analytics company that puts together the fashion capital list each year. "The second thing is the Olympics being in the UK."
New York wasn't too far behind, coming in at second on the list. Paris, Madrid, and Barcelona consecutively ranked third, fourth, and fifth.
