The Google Zeitgeist 2012 has started to release it's top online searches country by country, and it's no wonder that the UK is pumped about their stats. It's been a big year for those guys.

Top fashion-related search was for Stella McCartney, who, recall, designed the Olympic uniforms and won the BFA Designer of the Year Award.

Next, somehow Karl Lagerfeld said and did enough of everything this year to beat Victoria's Secret, the brand. Maybe searches for British VS catwalking models Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne split the vote. And lastly, Kate Middleton beat them all. Obviously.
