best dressed at the palace

Today there was a fashion face-off took place between the US and the UK. Representing the motherland was Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and representing the former colony was First Lady Michelle Obama.

It’s nice to see the Duchess is sticking with her favourite high street brands even though she’s now royalty – today she chose a camel bandage dress from Reiss (it’s called Shola and cost £175 but don’t bother looking – it’s already sold out!) Apparently the palace is so large that she has to carry around her purse so she chose an Anya Hindmarch black silk clutch, which matched her high black heels.

The First Lady decided to give the high street stores a miss for her visit, opting for a Barbara Tfank blue brocade dress paired with a pink silk bolero and silver slingbacks. In my opinion, it’s a little too glitzy for daytime at the palace but if anyone can rock it, it’s Michelle.

Who do you deem winner in the best dressed stakes? For me, it’s an easy win for the Duchess.

  • I wanted that Zara dress the Duchess wore the day after the wedding – but i think it’s sold out! I too love that she’s wearing things from the high street rather than designer labels. She looks elegant.

    • @vintageglammz – I actually tried on that blue Zara dress a couple of weeks before she wore it but unfortunately it just didn’t fit me quite right – though that didn’t stop me wanting it again once I saw the Duchess wearing it! If you’re really after one, I could try to track down your size for you because they still had a few at my local store when I was there a couple of days ago…
