The Duchess of Cambridge Meets the Obamas in Reiss

So much for keeping a low profile.

Just returned from their private honeymoon in the Seychelles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge found themselves thrust back into the spotlight as they welcomed the Obamas to London. Not that we mind. And we hear that Will and Kate won't be participating in the big state dinner, a way to show that they're not really working members of the Firm--yet--despite the fact that they've proven so popular.

Kate Middleton went for Reiss again, this time the Shola Bandage Dress. Demand for the dress was so high that the Reiss website crashed from traffic overload after these snaps were beamed 'round the world. Such is the power of KMidd. We do love how Kate makes high street and reasonably affordable (in this case £175) outfits look like a million bucks.

Kate accessorized with simple black Prada pumps and the Anya Hindmarch Maud clutch in black. Could Kate's shell necklace be something she brought back from her island getaway?


The Reiss dress was an inspired choice: understated, but with enough subtle detailing to make it interesting. There is one thing we need to get off our chests, though. Here goes...

KMidd, girl, we love you, but didn't they have food in the Seychelles?
Seriously. For the love of all that is holy, Eat. A. Cheeseburger.
'Kay? Thanks! Luvs, Us

And we're also not feeling Michelle Obama's prom-y and pastel-y outfit from Barbara Tfank. That pink bolero is hideous. Obvs, in this case, Britain has won the war. The style war that is.
