I'm not a fan of Kate's style, but I must say she looks beautiful. The color of the dress compliments her tan. The First Lady looks beautiful.

When the Queen saw the Obamas she extended her hand toward them. Isn't it against protocol to shake her hand?

HOLY MAN, the First Lady looks gorgeous tonight in that ivory gown!!

Michelle is one of those women who can come alive in evening wear, even if they don't always look so impressive in daywear, imo.

Maxima of the Netherlands and Letizia of Spain are two other examples.

Catherine and William - like the rest of young royals aren't attending banquets. The guest list posted on page 3 shows which royals will be there.

If The Queen extends her hand - you shake it.

Mmmm Generaly we don't have many pics of the guests / royal family during a state banquet at Buck house. Maybe we could find some arrival pictures but they're usualy quite scarce.
For the first time we had a live coverage from the BBC an it was quite exceptional!

I thought she had to wear gloves or is that a rumour? She didn't today and it would've been awkward to reject her handshake!

Thanks for the photo!
It would be safe to assume that Princess Michael looked gorgeous ... as usual.

According to the BBC, it is US designer Tom Ford.

2148:
Michelle Obama's dress tonight is coming in for a lot of praise - an elegant ivory gown by the US designer Tom Ford which shows off her figure.

Oh, Tom Ford...that's good. Thanks Molly!

I remember when she wore the wine colored Alexander McQueen last year she really took a beating from the press...because they said she should promote American designers.

But tonight would have been a good night to wear the McQueen gown!

No matter...I am loving that gown!

The Queen wears gloves outdoors but not normally for an indoor event. No-one would reject a handshake offered by the Queen.

Everyone looks beautiful! Who is the woman on Kevin Spacey's left? It looks like she's wearing a small tiara-like headdress...I thought that was verboten?

Michelle Obama looks stunning. But I am not a fan of that gigantic tiara that Camilla wears so often. It's just too big.

The Queen treats the Obamas to a state banquet and invites a few of their Hollywood friends | Mail Online
