Duchess of Cambridge Wears Sold Out Reiss Dress

What happens when the Duchess of Cambridge chooses a $340 dress from a popular British chain store for her first official duty as a newlywed? It sells out that day, of course! Catherine picked the simply elegant “Shola” sheath for her meeting (alongside her new husband Prince William) with the equally stylish Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama. And predictably, when the news spread of her wearing it, Reiss’s website crashed from all the traffic. The retailer has announced that they are re-stocking the sold-out style, but it will be first come, first serve to buy it — no pre-orders are being taken! However, there is a list that will alert you as soon as the style is back in stock in the next five to six weeks, which you can access at reissonline.com.

She DID look gorgeous.. she always does.
Not surprised it sold out at ALL.. only problem is that 90% of the population won’t look like that in it! lol…

I’m not shocked…it’s a great dress. She looks great and has great taste!

Cammie on

She looks sickly thin with an average face..but since she married a Prince..she suddenly “Gorgeous” and “Stunning”.And people are buying clothes just because she wore it… People are so focused on titles and classism it ashamed.

I really like the dress and the Duchess looks great. Don’t like obama’s dress though, she looks rather silly in something that you would expect a teen to wear to a high school dance.

@ Cammie – at least those that are have skills with grammar and spelling ;)
She DOES have an average face, but who cares about that? (Since 90% of the population has an average face, her style is above average and therefore she is not average.) She always looks beautiful and I’ll assume you’re just jealous.
Mean comments towards strangers beget mean comments towards strangers. Hope you’re okay living like that Miss Bitterpants.

she IS stunning! she is in no way average and looks great with that tan! she’s captured the hearts of billions, if you honestly think she isn’t a beautiful young woman, then you need an eye exam… she oozes poise and class, this is undeniable.

Well said, Abby!

I think she is gorgeous and would be even if she wasn’t married to a prince. However, I have no intention of ever running out and buying something just because she wore it, and I do agree she is looking too thin.

Mary on

I think Catherine looked stunning. The First Lady, not so much. She is not the fashion icon everyone seems to think she is.

Emily on

I think she looks beautiful as always! I love her taste in clothing and feel she comes off as a very likeable, genuine person(and Cammie, I could care less about titles).
