Is it me or does the dress that Mrs. Obama is wearing make her look like she's gained weight? Love the top, but the skirt isn't very flattering.

Are you kidding me? I'm sure they would not attend any official event in an inappropriate suits. Buying just for buying is not the way it should be.

I think they see a suit as a type of uniform. much happier in country garb (cords, wax jacket etc) but have to wear suits as a work uniform. Charles is the only one who looks comfortable in them but he's got STYLE!!!

Portia Simpson, Jamaica's prime minister, is there. When I saw her I immediately remembered that fantastic reception she gave to Harry in his Jubilee tour

My, even our President was present.
Apparently, Serzh Sarksyan will be present at the Opening ceremony as well.

I am not saying they should not wear anything other than a suit, and I love a man in a suit, I just find it amusing that the Royal men wear suits for years yet their women spend money on clothes all the time. It shows good tailoring and proves an expensive suit will last.

The Queen's speech was lovely, I wonder if she gets nervous...

By now, it's probably a pretty basic routine for her.
Giving a speech in front of God knows how many Heads of State? Been there, done that.

Maybe there just isn't a picture yet?
If Armenia managed to squeeze in, I'd imagine Polish representatives are definitely somewhere there.

I really see no reason for not using the same clothes until they are really used and inappropriate to wear. The females also recycle.

I'm afraid there will be no photos of any official Polish representatives at government level, only those of the Polish Olympic Committee are attending, obviously.
I found that on the Web: Update on VIPs attending the Olympic Opening Ceremony | Government Olympic Communication and there is no any Polish representative mentioned. I've also read somewhere that they are all attending as guests of honour of their national OCs and not the British. I'm sure there is the President of the Polish OC and Mrs Irena Szewinska, an IOC member from Poland who is also a legendary sprinter and seven-time Olympic medalist, including three gold medals and a six-time world record holder. But I think someone from the Polish gov. or even the President should attend and represent Poland among almost 100 other world leaders... :/ It looks pretty bad for such a big country like Poland not to send anyone?

Just to clarify, the man wearing the interesting headgear is Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Omurbek Babanov.
He is wearing a kalpak - a high-crowned cap worn by men in Kyrgyzstan, Bulgaria, Turkey, Iran and Central Asia.

I never think Mrs. Obama looks well-dressed for anything; just don't get why she's considered a fashion icon????

(Don't get me started on those white pants! And some people criticize Kate's jeggings as too revealing!)
