"Her fashion faux pas over the years have been negligible, and she knows how to dress for her stunning figure and experiment with colour and silhouette."
The stylist added: "When it comes to dressing, she has a sense of playfulness and drama which the more conservative British royals lack."
Additionally, Beatrice is not afraid to take fashion risks, while Kate plays it safer with her style choices.
Miranda said: "We would never expect to see gladiator sandals, four different wedding dresses, and body-con red carpet dresses on Kate Middleton, for example.
"But Beatrice carries this off with a poise and inner confidence that demonstrates she is fully comfortable in her own skin.
"She is not afraid to take the odd style risk - and this pays off."
