Kate wows them in her Reiss dress

The dress Kate chose to wear when she met the Obamas at Buckingham Palace cost $267 and is by British fashion warehouse Reiss who are now madly hurrying to meet orders. I would have preferred another colour but maybe the idea is not to overshadow Michelle. Just goes to show though you don't need to spend a fortune to look good, although with such a slim figure she could wear anything.

Still obsessing about wedding dresses

After all the comparisons I just wanted to have another look at the amazing gown, designed by Helen Rose, Grace Kelly wore when she wed Prince Ranier in 1956 to see which one I prefer.
I can't help but being continually drawn to this dress. I just feel it has that something extra although if I could see more closely all the beautifully intricate embroidery done on Kate's dress by the Royal College of Needlework in London I might change my mind.
