First Lady Michelle Obama not only met Queen Elizabeth II, but also Kate Middleton, now known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Tuesday afternoon at Buckingham Palace in London, England. President Obama and the first lady are in the UK for a two day State Visit at the invitation of the queen.
For this special occasion, Mrs. Obama wore a mint hued floral dress, which appeared in designer Barbara Tfank’s Resort 2011 collection. The A-line skirt with its defined, high waist flattered Michelle’s lovely pear shape. She layered this dress with a pale pink, cropped cardigan adorned with her signature jeweled brooch.
As for Catherine, the duchess wore a Shola Bandage Dress for this first royal appointment, post honeymoon. The beige dress with square neckline and angular cap sleeves is by one of her favorite designers, Reiss.
During their State Visit, the first couple will be attending a state banquet at Buckingham Palace and the president will address both houses of parliament at Westminster Hall.
Whose ensemble do you like best?
Not fair to choose, both women are elegant and wearing the right style to suit their figure, although I do love Kate’s, it elegantly conceals her extreme slimness.
