HRH is a pale dress with lacy jacket; FLOTUS in ivory gown with homage to Kwan "Fallin" dress neckline (http://img3.photobucket.com/albums/v32/kwanin2006/Exhibition/2021216dhamtall111200482152PM.jpg) minus the straps. :lol: HRC in pale aqua -- a bit too pale, as she looks rather washed out. Camilla in medium blue and tiara -- she looks very nice and is sitting next to the POTUS. In close up, Hillary's dress looks a bit better.

Food info from BBC blog
On the menu for the Obamas' delectation this evening will be a starter of sole with watercress and a crayfish and bechamel sauce. The main course is new season lamb grown on the Queen's Windsor estate, with roast potatoes, roasted radish, courgettes and green beans. Desert is a vanilla charlotte served with morello cherries.

Wow, Bea looks amazing in those flower show photos. Seriously, where was that look a few weeks ago?

I like Hillary´s and Camilla´s dresses they look great and age appropiate (also lurve the fact that Camilla is not afraid to wear huge tiaras - The honeycomb tiara is beautiful but not everyone has the head to wear it :lol:)

Michelle looks great but something is missing, I dont know.:confused:

HM looks great and gave a lovely speech, Obama´s was good also but the band mess the toast:eek:

Camilla's tiara is very pretty- but it looks kind of silly that it's twice as big as the Queens. Guess there isn't any sort of protocol in wearing a bigger one?

Michelle looks great but something is missing, I dont know.:confused:I think perhaps a little more "bling" -- maybe earrings that were a bit bolder and with more spark? I liked her dress (http://theobamadiary.com/2011/05/24/heads-up-the-state-dinner/), except for that bow at the waist.

Yes! Maybe bigger earrings or more "shiny" ones?

Her dress looks great, a great cut to fit her body type, but you are right the bow doesn´t work.

Guess there isn't any sort of protocol in wearing a bigger one?i don't think there is, because both of the tiaras Camilla has worn are the largest in the collection, and I imagine the Queen gave permission. But they suit her well, and probably wouldn't be worn otherwise, so it's okay. :)

More pics of the Cambridges meeting w/the Obamas...

Dutch Royal Fashion site (http://fashion-of-royals.web-log.nl/blog/2011/05/catherine-hertogin-van-cambridge-24052011.html)

Obviously the site is in Dutch, but there's great photos over there, as well as a picture and information of the dress Catherine's wearing.

Kate is elegant and sleek as always but what the hell is Michelle Obama wearing? :scream: It's so garish, like she ripped the upholstery off one of the sofas and made a skirt from it.

What did she wear for state dinner? I would totally wear Kate's dress to work.

I would totally wear Kate's dress to work.As I described it in my post 106 above, a pale ivory or white dress (http://theobamadiary.com/2011/05/24/heads-up-the-state-dinner/) which was a homage to Kwan's "Fallin'" dress from 2004 Nationals and Worlds. :P And as I said before, I liked it except for that bow at the waist.

Thanks, I love that dress. So elegant. Hate the gloves but I suppose she had to? And I agree, the bow is superfluous but not too bad. It's the gloves that bug me.

ETA:
Watched some of the video: HRC looks nice with her hair up, in pale blue.
