The Duchess of Cambridge's little brother James Middleton recently announced his engagement to Alizee Thevenet on Instagram by sharing a loved-up Instagram photo of the pair in the Lake District. The pair were beaming with joy as Alizee showed off her stunning sapphire sparkler, posing with her hand on her husband-to-be's chest. Alizee will be one beautiful bride, but she's also very intelligent. She holds a Master's degree in Investment and Finance from Queen Mary University of London, and works in the London financial industry. We can see why James has fallen for this smart cookie – she speaks three languages and is a high-flying financial analyst – but of course, we couldn't help but notice that she's super stylish, too.
The 32-year-old kept his relationship relatively under wraps but it appeared that things were getting pretty serious between the gorgeous pair when James took Alizee along to Lady Gabriella Windsor's royal wedding - and on an outing with the entire Middleton clan to Wimbledon. He also made things Instagram-official with an adorable snap on his personal account in May. Cute!
Alizee and James made an appearance at Wimbledon 2019
Alizee totally wowed us with her classic style for her recent appearance at the Wimbledon Men's Singles Final, looking effortless in a red and white outfit. She teamed a pair of crisp cotton trousers with a plunging red blouse and simple espadrilles, finished with a gorgeous ethical basket bag from Mauritian brand Soleil Bazaar. With James looking ultra-dapper in his tailored jacket and loafers, we reckon this pair look like the ultimate fashion power couple!

It turns out that everyone else has noticed that Alizee is something of a style icon, since she caused a total sell-out at H&M after she turned up to Lady Gabriella Windsor's wedding in a £49.99 dress from the brand. It's even being re-sold on eBay for up to double the price – can we call that the 'Alizee effect'? Looking totally effortless as she was snapped arriving at St George's Chapel, she teamed the floaty dress with a chic boater hat and simple nude heels.

While other snaps of the couple together are scarce, we also got a glimpse at Alizee's laidback style while she holidayed in St Barths with James in January. The pair joined Pippa and James Matthews, Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews for the Caribbean trip, which saw them snapped on a number of occasions while out and about, and on the beach in chic swimwear.
Alizee seems to prefer a casual-cool style, often choosing to wear classic colours and prints. She was also snapped in a simple white mini dress and converse as she boarded the plane to fly home from St Barths, and wore an understated red roll-neck jumper in James' recent loved-up selfie. In fact, the couple were almost twinning with their outfits in the snap, which fans were quick to notice. "I hope this girl fully understands that she landed herself with a hot man who sails, and is a dog person and is willing to wear matching sweaters," one joked. Here's hoping we see the sweet couple at another public event soon…
