Duchess of Cambridge Wears Sold Out Reiss Dress

What happens when the Duchess of Cambridge chooses a $340 dress from a popular British chain store for her first official duty as a newlywed? It sells out that day, of course! Catherine picked the simply elegant “Shola” sheath for her meeting (alongside her new husband Prince William) with the equally stylish Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama. And predictably, when the news spread of her wearing it, Reiss’s website crashed from all the traffic. The retailer has announced that they are re-stocking the sold-out style, but it will be first come, first serve to buy it — no pre-orders are being taken! However, there is a list that will alert you as soon as the style is back in stock in the next five to six weeks, which you can access at reissonline.com.

I believe that the First Lady did not shave her legs.

That’s great to both hear! I wish Kendra Wilkinson the best with her new Memoir, glad she and her Husband, Hank Baskett, are having a great Sex Life, again, since DWTS!

I love the dress and I think she looks great. I would never order it though as my figure is not shaped that way and I would just look fat. I’m sure now that the stress of the wedding is over she’ll gain a bit of weight back as a comment to all those who say she is too thin.

she is all about class, beauty and elegance. something you don’t see with the young girls today. NO tramp stamps or tatoos on this gal. maybe she will start a trend of women getting back to having some class and repect for themselves. she is finally a women young girls can aspire to be like in every way.

The dress is nice, the Duchess is a beautiful woman. But with today’s Economy, not everyone can afford a dress that is in that price range. Can’t wait for a copy cat pattern to come out.

Michele looks like a GORILLA

I have to admit, outside of a Princess who is no longer with us and was my distant cousin, i haven’t been a “Royal Watcher”. But Catherine is just so lovely! Down to earth, beautiful in a healthy way, just a neat young lady. I loved the wedding; it was so fun with all of the tough things happening in the world to just get caught up in this not-a-fairy tale. It’s better, it’s real life. I have such high hopes for William and Kate and think they are bringing wonderful things to the Monarchy. Keep it up, we love you in the US! :)

Like their style or don’t like their style, some of these comments are absolutely ridiculous and laughable. Yes, everyone has the right to their own opinion and this is indeed a place to express oneself, but there is no need to be harsh. Statements that have been made are totally unnecessary and classless. A lesson or two could be learned by these two women. Personally, I think they look and are absolutely beautiful.

Well said Abby. I suspect Cammie’s attitude comes from jealousy, which tends to breed bitterness. Pity. Catherine is gorgeous and as always, is dressed perfectly for the occasion.

She is simply gorgeous!
