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.

Amazing that class costs only $300 (Kate) and non-class costs over $2,000 (Michele). Just goes to show you that money can’t make you look better…ESPECIALLY tax payer money (Michele) I LOVE that Kate and William are so down to earth. A breath of fresh air!!!

[…] fun summery tops. Her sister, Kate, is likewise setting trends with her rare public appearances. The beige Reiss dress Kate Middleton wore to meet the Obamas on Tuesday has also sold out! The worldwide fame that Pippa found following […]

Wow, is Kate’s dress ever pretty! I wonder if she has a stylist? If not, I wonder how she has time to find all these chic clothes? I know she doesn’t have a job, per se, but she does have a busy life.

All this slamming towards Cammie is out of hand. A person should be able to state their opinion, even if it’s not the general consensus, without being called bitter or jealous. I agree with Cammie’s points. This girl is an average Joe who has morphed into a worldwide icon merely because of who she is married to. Not to mention that the man she is married too is also only famous because he happens to be born into a famous family. Leave this poor girl alone. Let her live her happy married life, it is not that fascinating. A ribbon cut here, an opening ceremony there, big whoop. A four year old can do that. If some of this recognition/adoration was shifted towards doctors/scientists etc. that would be well more justified.

And with that said. Let the bashing of my opinion begin! ;)

I think she is above average looking, but not “gorgeous”. I like her style most of the time and I like this dress. Initially I thought that the prince could find a really beautiful girl, because, well, he is the Prince. But it seems like her personality and persistance (8 years of dating) worked for him. Good for her!

The First Lady has absolutely no sense of style. I have never seen her in anything that is flattering. You would think that in her position she might want to find a stylist to help her out. Her posture is horrendous. Catherine on the other hand is absolutely stunning, wears clothes that fit her beautifully and she never looks like she is trying too hard. Always perfect.

yes I agree-she is a unhealthy looking stick figure with a tan-and her sister looks like a prize fighter-and has obviously “made the rounds” but in the “right circles” of course-mommy and daddy did a great job getting their little “investments” into the right schools and parties and it looks to be paying off-maybe her and Wills will be the end of the ridiculous money sponge that is the English royal family-I say let her do her own grocery shopping (I hope no one really bought that staged Photo-op) but I say let her buy the groceries with her own pay check and not the dividend from the family trust-siphened off the tax payers

According to people who have studied “beauty”, “average” is beauty. When you have people choose the best nose, the best body, best eyes, etc., it turns out they always choose the medium sizes and shapes. So beauty is supposedly having “average” size parts that are proportioned in an average way.

How did the first lady get into this debate about Kates dress?!!!! Yes I agree, Kate is just average and I find that she has a way of looking boring in this dreses as she doesn’t have any curves to carry them off.Boyish figures just don’t look great in dresses!
