A dear friend from London sent me this picture of a very sleek Catherine meeting Mrs Obama, to show me the 175 pound nude sheath dress Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge wore from a High Street Brand called Reiss, which led to such a furious stampede virtually to buy said dress, that their website crashed. Apart from the gladden my cockles fact that good girl Catherine is not dipping too deep into the family vault to fund her public appearances, what really hit my eyes was what Michelle Obama was wearing.
This is what the internet tells me it was. Her 50s-shape floral dress in mint was from the latest collection by Barbara Tfank.A metallic pink cropped swing jacket and jewelled brooch completed her look.
And then, there was this illfitting horror, something straight out of Grecian drama, which did nothing for her body structure.
It was a Tom Ford white gown with a crisscross halter neckline, yes, but it could have done with a sleeker fitted skirt, rather than the flowing, debutante look that was more coming out ball than power lady.
And they’re rhapsodising about what she’s been wearing out there in the media. Maybe, I’ve got it wrong. Maybe curtains are high fashion. After all, Scarlett O’Hara put them to good use once too.
