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 think the Duchess looks gorgeous, and if she is considered “average” then I’ll take looking average too any day of the week. Personally I don’t think she is too skinny, I think she looks fit and healthy.

Some of your comments here are hypocritical. You go off on Cammie for voicing her opinion, then in the next line, diss Mrs Obama’s dress (@Lorelei). Cammie voiced her opinion. So sophmoric to play the jealousy card becos she does like the dress, or comments on Kate’s size.

Thought I’d go off topic too, what do you think of what the gentleman in the background is wearing (lol)

I think Kate is gorgeous. I think she has a beautiful face and one of the prettiest smiles I’ve ever seen. To call her average is laughable to me. Yes, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but there’s no reason to be hateful…that’s when people accuse you of being jealous.

Wow…Kel, The First Lady looks like a gorilla? Some of you people are unreal. It’s a dress, so I assume you pick the perfect outfit everyday? Some women are so caddy with each other…such a waste of energy. They both look fine.

Don’t be hating on Kate. First off, she IS gorgeous, she is NOT too thin and the best part of the new Duchess is that she appears to be playing down her role which I find to be Kate’s best attribute. Less than 400 dollars for a dress for her first engagement? That says a lot. The world is going to love this girl.

To all those calling her to skinny….you trying dealing with planning teh biggest wedding in the world for our decade and be married to the future king of england, you probably wouldn’t eat a lot either and be pretty stressed out. but who am I kidding she could be to skinny to fat, theres no happy medium when your in the eye of the public, you too “something” always.

Thank God…Ness for Average.
Mrs. Obama looks like the very room she stepped into; old fabric very dated. The purple number she wore moved ones eye to her very large hips with the belt and the full skirt it is more fabric than was needed. The white ensemble she tried to pull off was a “Jacquie O” all white number that was too white for her complexion. She forgot or never knew the number one fashion rule “less is always more”. But she should be able to pay someone for good taste.

Kate is stunning and always picks nice clothes, I do agree that she is looking a little on the thin side. She’s a tall girl but look at her neck and legs, much too thin, but gorgeous girl.

She exudes plenty sophistication for a woman her age and seems to hold her own with some of the most powerful leaders of the world. She seems so regal with or without title.
