The royal baby is here -- and with it, a new Kate Middleton look to analyze!

The Duchess of Cambridge is a style icon, so it's no surprise that she looks just as good 10 hours after giving birth as she does the rest of the time.

PICS: It's a Girl! The Princess in Pics

Word is stylist Amanda Cook Tucker was on call to visit Kate right after she gave birth, in order to do her hair and dress her for the formal debut of the new Princess of Cambridge.

Cook Tucker was there in July 2013 to style her for George's big moment.

When she first came out with baby George, Kate wore a bespoke short-sleeved powder blue polka-dotted Jenny Packham dress. She paired it with white heels and her signature blowout.

This time around, the Duchess opted to stick with Jenny Packham. This time, she wore a silk shift dress with three-quarter-length sleeves. The dress featured a yellow and white buttercup design.
