    Prince Andrew is starting to look a bit like Jerry Lewis.
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

First I've ever seen her wearing her hair that way and it really suits her.
    Princess Bea looked very elegant at the CFS - and I agree her hair looked lovely like that. What I like is how she took all the ridicule about that hat - and then auctioned it off on e-bay for £81000 with all the proceeds going to charity. She showed she was willing to laugh - along with everyone else - at herself and in doing so really went up in many peoples estimation I think. Kudos to the girl.

    I'm getting a live feed from the BBC site and have already sighted my first tiara! Tom Hanks and Kevin Spacey on the guest list -- also Tony Blair and Gordon Brown (wedding snubees).

    ETA: Just sighted my first dress disaster -- one-sleeved thing, with a pouf/puff at the shoulder the size of a bowling ball.

    ETA: Kristen Chenoweth sighting. Also Tim Burton and HBC.

    HRH is a pale dress with lacy jacket; FLOTUS in ivory gown with homage to Kwan "Fallin" dress neckline minus the straps. 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?
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.

    Actually, HM, the Queen. Just caught one glimpse of Anne -- I think she was wearing something white and a very subdued tiara -- and she looked much older than Camilla!

    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 )

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

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

    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?

    I think perhaps a little more "bling" -- maybe earrings that were a bit bolder and with more spark? I liked her dress, except for that bow at the waist.

    I'm at work, so I was able to watch the livestream -- but couldn't have the sound on, so I didn't hear anything.

    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.

    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

    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? It's so garish, like she ripped the upholstery off one of the sofas and made a skirt from it.

    Perhaps she wanted to create a real contrast with what she wore for the state dinner. If so, it definitely worked.

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

    As I described it in my post 106 above, a pale ivory or white dress which was a homage to Kwan's "Fallin'" dress from 2004 Nationals and Worlds. 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.
