Princess Kate Meets Michelle Obama May 24, 2011
The Duchess of Cambridge, tanned, super skinny, and in all her minimalist glory, meets Michelle Obama, May 24, 2011, at Buckingham Palace.
Kate's first royal engagement -- as a royal -- was to meet President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. She wore a beige dress by Reiss, whose website crashed shortly after it was revealed that the $280 dress was from their shop. Accessories included a black clutch, black pumps, earrings and a necklace I will try to get a better picture of at some point, and that sapphire ring.
Call me a sourpuss, but there's just something a little too perfect about Kate here. I know she doesn't want to get it wrong, and she doesn't want to upstage anyone, and she doesn't really want to stand out from the furniture.
And she succeeds. But don't you think this outfit would have been much more interesting in an actual color, like a soft blue or bold red (see my obviously photoshopped red and purple concept on the left)...or...maybe...with...say....a hat? Hey, this one is a perfect match:
