Rachel Zoe and Lisa Vanderpump rave about Britain's sweetheart.

Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton made quite the first impression when she marked her first visit to the United States recently.

"I feel she has captured many hearts!" fellow Brit and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump told Instyle.com about her royal girl crush. "I am a huge fan."

She's not alone — fellow Bravolebrity Rachel Zoe went ba-nan-as for Mrs. Wales' chic ensembles. "I can't even say enough about that dress," RZ gushed to ABC about the glamorous lilac Alexander McQueen stunner Kate chose for her walk down the BAFTA "Brits to Watch" red carpet. "I couldn't have actually picked something better than that for her."

And considering the Duchess of Cambridge travels sans a stylist, The Rachel Zoe Project star foresees a future fashion powerhouse. "Taking on this role as a princess is a lot of things, and I think a fashion icon is something that you become whether you want to or not. I think she's really easing into it. I think she's not trying too hard; she's just always getting it right to me. She's very approachable in what she chooses."

Too bad William's wardrobe didn't earn exactly the same nod from our resident celebrity stylist. "I'd like to see him maybe play a little bit more with kind of out-there jackets!"
