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 can not imagine how it would feel to have the world judge my appearance on a daily basis. Maybe we all judge each other but thankfully we don’t have to read about ourselves. :) I think they are both beautiful women….maybe it is their confidence that shines through.

I think Kate is lovely, very pretty features and very good taste, before her wedding & after her wedding. She is a quality gal, few women would wait 8 years to marry the man they loved, especially trying to do it with the press haunting your every move! She’s a delightful young woman, I wish them every happiness. I think Kate is as pretty inside as she is stunning outside!

I am like royalty…LOL I try to buy mostly products from the countries were I belong…. the one I was born, the one I was raised, and the one I live in…. My countries have great clothes, bags, shoes, food and therefore I support the economy of my people…. you know like royalty ;-)

Kate looks wonderful and is glowing! But, can’t imagine people buying the dress just because she wore it, probably 85% couldn’t look as elegant as the Duchess does. Ms.Obama, too bad she doesn’t have the stlye savvy that she thinks she does. Class will up!

First off- Kel, not only are you a racist, your outside most likely resembles your inside, ie, I am guessing you can easily pass for a swine.
Now, back to the topic at hand- I love Kate’s dress. While I like Mrs. O, I dislike her dress. She usually has better fashion sense.

But at least she isn’t a swine like Kel :)

What the heck is that idiot Obama wearing?! Pfft! What is she 12?! Then that pink jacket…my goodness!!

Why is kel a racist? By assuming that she meant to use gorilla for any reference to a physical likeness only shows your train of thought. When I read the comment I simply thought she was referring to her size compared to Kates diminutive stature. I always think those who so readily jump to the “racist” label actually have the issue. ( by the way my mother is Jamaican).
Kate looks beautiful and COMPLETELY discounts the long held misconception of Ms. OBAMA’s supposed fashionista title.

She is very pretty but I think she need to have her hair trimmed or wear it up it does not look very royal hanging down like it does.
