Just returned from their honeymoon, Kate and William glowed with golden tan skin when they met the Obamas, who were in England for UK state visits. Princess Kate Middleton greeted the Obamas in a nude Shola dress made by Reiss, along with hubby Prince William, looking professional as always in his classic black tuxedo.
Although the Obama’s trip to the UK was all business, they had time to visit Westminster Abbey, Downing Street and tour the Buckingham Palace gardens where a gust of wind nearly blew up Michelle Obama’s dress! Michelle had several close calls due to the windy British weather. After the near faux pas, I’m sure Kate told Michelle about the dressmakers who sew small weights into the Queen’s hems!
Despite these issues, The First Lady is always dressed to a T, but Kate is another first lady who always accompanies her man’s side wearing the finest fashion. Although she chooses less pricey styles, she out-dresses Michelle this time. And others think so as well.
According to USA Today, the Shola dress cost a little over $300. That is certainly a cheap choice for a royal princess. Kate’s nude dress got so much attention that Reiss’s dress website received 300% more traffic than usual. This traffic overload bogged down the website so it was temporarily unavailable for quite some time!
Want to get everyone’s attention like Kate? The elegant-in-neutral look was accompanied with a classy black clutch and certainly caught the eyes of people across the globe. Try our Cecily Lace Clutch or Caroline Lace Clutch to match your next nude colored dress!
