I think this is the loveliest (and best fitting) ensemble that Kate has worn. It looks stunning on her.

IMO Michelle Obama is at her best in evening wear. I'm not much of a fan of her day wear but she has looked fabulous at some of the formal dinners.

I completely agree. It looks as if she took some old curtains and a table cloth and made a dress/skirt and blouse out of them. What a way to represent one's country. Truly embarrassing.

She attended, but she was very late and actually arrived after QEII had started giving a speech to the guests. Maybe that was the Spanish government's way of making some kind of point.

The President of Argentina is not attending the Olympics because of The Falklands. Her loss, doubt she absence will upset anyone. Too bad she didn't have the good grace to get over herself and come to support her nations athletes.

Same old story. Spain wants Gibraltar back but unfortunately the residents of The Rock want to remain British and not be given to Spain. They have voted against joining Spain in a couple of referendums and London won't turn them over without their approval.

Wow. Completely disrespectful. Her outfit may not have been to your liking but it's beautiful to others. As for her supposedly looking like she's gained weight, they're called hips. Women around the world have them.

I didn't say a single thing about her weight. Personally, I won't care if she gained or lost any. I don't like how she dresses, period, and if others think what she's wearing is beautiful, that's their right, but I'd like to keep my right of expressing what I'm seeing. I'm not disrespecting her; only her choice in attire. I'm not a fan of this woman to begin with, but my dislike has nothing to do with what she chooses to wear to official (or unofficial) functions.

Actually I liked her outfit!

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.
And from the side view she is the spitting image of her mother.

Great post. Michelle Obama is a fabulous representative of US born and/or situated designers. She looks great and the outfit she wore for the reception was perfect for the occassion.

Actually, she didn't look too bad compared to her last appearance in day clothes at the Palace. She does tend to look better dressed in evening clothes, but at least her outfit today was fairly age appropriate.

As far as her weight, I was responding to Other posts, not yours.

It's of course your opinion and the right to express it, but I find it incredibly disrespectful that you equate your opinion of her style/fashion with the way she represents her country. That is uncalled for and may be based on other feelings you may hold about her.

Let's please get back to the topic of this thread - this is not a fashion thread for Michelle Obama!

Spletnik.ru --- The Buckingham Palace reception for foreign dignitaries

Mrs. Alieva's ensemble was chic. The rest looked bland. Seeing the photos of the usual style icons is boring. I wish there were photos of other couples.
