The Duchess of Sussex has brought a whole new dimension to royal style this year, making clear her love of clean lines, neutrals and trouser suits . Meghan, 37, has proved to be a master of diplomatic dressing and introduced us to little-known fashion labels, in addition to representing American and Canadian designers . The mum-to-be was born and raised in the US and spent around six years in Toronto, Canada, while filming ‘Suits’. The Duchess also paid tribute to her London, since moving here at the start of the year and has worn pieces from a number of British-based designers, including Stella McCartney, Erdem and Emilia Wickstead as well as accessories from Strathberry, Charlotte Elizabeth and DeMellier. Meghan’s also cemented her relationship with Givenchy’s creative director Clare Waight Keller , who created her wedding dress. Meghan turns to Keller for bespoke pieces, particularly for high-profile and important engagements. But, being a former Hollywood actress and a royal does mean that her wardrobe carries a hefty price tag. By all accounts, Meghan’s 2018 wardrobe has proved to be far more expensive than her stylish sister-in-law’s. Thanks to her wedding, royal tour of Australia and a wealth of formal events, the cost of the Duchess’ ensembles has crept into the thousands. Notable outfits from the year include the newlywed’s two bridal gowns and a particularly show-stopping Oscar de la Renta cocktail dress, which she wore in Australia. Take a look at Meghan’s most expensive outfits she’s worn in 2018 in the gallery above. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

As the year draws to a close, we’re desperately trying to squeeze a last-minute getaway in before the inevitable Christmas crush. But with festive flight deals invading our inbox, it can prove impossible to know where to kick-start our holiday planning. Thankfully, we’ve tracked down the 20 most searched-for holiday destinations of 2018 so you can finally cross off one of the hot spots you didn’t get a chance to see (or ‘gram) this year. Family favourites Cyprus, Malta and Benidorm proved popular in 2018 with Tenerife unsurprisingly stealing the top spot. When it comes to chic city breaks , Amsterdam played host to countless Brits alongside Dublin, Barcelona and Rome. Those itching for adventure were scouring the Internet for all things Aussie (we’re pretty sure Harry and Meghan have something to do with our newfound wanderlust). So if you’re itching to escape the manic run-up to Christmas, look no further for inspiration as we count down this year’s most searched-for holiday destinations from New York to Thailand.

Consider this your annual refresher for everything that's happened in the fashion industry in 2018.
We often turn to the A-list pack in search of sartorial inspiration whether it’s a red carpet ensemble that’s made our Pinterest board or a street style pap shot that’s inspired our latest shopping list. Yet although armed with a celebrity stylist and wardrobe team, Hollywood’s biggest names don’t always hit the right fashion notes. This year, the near-naked trend reigned the headlines and although a major talking point, the likes of Bella Hadid and Rita Ora failed to make some of our best dressed lists as a consequence. 2018 has also been a time of experimentation for a bunch of celebrities with Amber Heard trialling a couture swimming cap on the red carpet to Lady Gaga making Shakespearean ruffles a thing. But if we had to give the award for this year’s most unusual wardrobe, actor Ezra Miller is a sure-fire winner thanks to that Moncler puffer dress . From Rihanna’s pope-inspired Met Gala ensemble to Robert Pattinson’s twist on the traditional tux, these were this year’s most unusual (and wonderfully weird) celebrity outfits.

This year has been a busy one for the Royal Family , with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding topping the most searched-for royal moments by Yahoo users in 2018. The couple were married at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle surrounded by family and A-listers , in a ceremony that was watched by an estimated 1.9m people around the globe. Of course that wasn’t the only royal wedding – Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank announced their engagement back in January and tied the knot in an autumnal ceremony at the same venue as Harry and Meghan in October. The youngest royals have stolen the limelight on more than one occasion and there’s also been two new arrivals to the fold with the birth of Kate and William’s third child Prince Louis in April and a second daughter Lena for Mike and Zara Tindall in June. And just five months after their fairytale wedding, Harry and Meghan got Yahoo readers excited for another royal baby, as they announced they’re expecting their first child in spring 2019 . The news came as the couple embarked on their whirlwind tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand . Turning to the most senior members of the Royal Family, the Prince of Wales celebrated his 70th birthday in November and got the family together for an adorable photoshoot to mark the milestone occasion. As with every official duty or family moment, it’s also the opportunity for the royals to show off their style credentials. From designer gowns to high street outfits, the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex have proved the royal effect is still going strong.
