It seems like every time Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge steps out — or does anything really — it makes the headlines. And her recent visit to the Natural History Museum in London was no exception.

On July 13, Middleton joined Sir David Attenborough to unveil “Hope,” the new blue whale skeleton, at the reopening of Hintze Hall. But the whale wasn’t the only thing making waves that night...

Her shorter ‘do — dubbed the "kob" (Kate bob), which she debuted at Wimbledon earlier this month — was the talk of the event.

Safe to say, Duchess Kate is the queen of gorgeous hair with her long, lustrous locks. (Who can forget when her long-time stylist, Richard Ward, revealed how to get her signature “Chelsea blowout” at-home? Total game-changer!) And while she may have lost some length, her shoulder-skimming cut is as shiny and glossy as ever.

To complement her new cut, she chose a pale blue dress by Preen By Thornton Bregazzi, strappy Prada sandals, a purple box clutch and minimal jewelry — letting her shorn strands be the star. As always, she looked classic and perfectly polished.

If her past looks — and the attention they’ve garnered — are proof of anything it’s that everything she wears flies off the shelves and her beauty look sparks trends. Speaking of you, you may want to use face flannels that are a staple in the duchess's skin care routine.

So it's no surprise that the Everly stretch-crepe dress that she wore is already sold out. We predict the "kob" is going to start popping up everywhere!
