Kate's Reiss Dress Sells Out, Will Be Restocked

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.

I think she loos great and happy, but too thin.
The dress is nice, and it looks nice on her.

Grammar and punctuation issues aside Cammie has a point. I don’t neceassarily think it’s “mean” to have a different point of view and the old ‘if you don’t like it then you’re jealous’ argument is common and tired and really not much of an argument at all. Sometimes people don’t like things. Sometimes people are critical and that’s okay.

Mrs.O’bama looks like a big old bear that could swat the future queen into next week.

@Cammie…eat your heart out! Yup, she has style, she looks gorgeous, and she married a prince! Maybe you can find a little sunshine behind that black cloud of yours!

I think it is great how everyone criticizes Cammie for her differing opinion, but think nothing of a poster calling the First Lady a “big ole bear”. Cammie is right, Catherine could be any girl and everyone would find her “gorgeous” and “stunning” whatever she wore. However, it is wholly pathetic that people feel the need to spew vitriol about any person. The old adage goes, if you have nothing nice to say… Think about if either of them were your sister, mother or friend! It is so sad what this world is coming to…

Compare to Kate’s style, Mrs.O’bama has none. she is not fashion icon

For Maggie and Abby, it’s ditto from me. Cammie is sooooo wrong.

The Duchess looks stunning. Her dress is gorgeous, and she is a beautiful woman no matter what she wears. All those that are trying so hard to cut her down like Cammie for instance need to remember that beauty is only skin deep and will fade before it’s time for most of us. The First Lady is very attractive, but I feel that her stylists should pay more attention to her figure and the classic styles that would suit her so much better. The dress she wore in the picture with the Duchess looks like a curtain material my Grandmother had many years ago. I bet the dress was costly, but the material looks cheap and does not do her justice. If I was her, I would fire the stylist on the spot.
