If there was ever a formula for best dressed, it would look something like this: Kate Middleton + her royal baby bump + anything she wears.

So it’s no surprise that the Duchess earned the top spot for the third week in row in a pale blue sleeveless Emilia Wickstead design, which she paired with gray suede Rupert Sanderson pumps to The Art Room reception in London.

Sure, Kate looks elegant per usual and we love her half-up twisted do (check out her hairstyle from all angles), but we think another gorgeous Brit truly deserves the style crown this week.

Ashley Madekwe came in a close second thanks to the patterned aqua Monique Lhuillier peplum number she wore to the College Television Awards Gala in L.A. (along with a yellow clutch and black stilettos, both Jimmy Choo, and Baccarat jewels). And as if that wasn’t enough sartorial amazingness, she added hot pink lips and a bright blue pedi. We’re tweeting the Revenge actress right now to see if we can borrow the look for an upcoming wedding.

The rest of the top 10 list is a mix of summery floral prints, lace looks and another Princess Kate look (her black-and-white polka dot dress).

Tell us: Was the Duchess of Cambridge your best-dressed star this week? Or Ashley Madekwe? If not, who was?
