Duchess Kate Wears Reiss Dress to Meet the Obamas

Posted on


She may be stylish, but the Duchess of Cambridge constantly proves that looking chic isn’t just for royalty. Catherine chose one of her go-to brands, British retailer Reiss, when she and new husband Prince William met with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at Buckingham Palace, marking their first royal duty since their wedding on April 29. The “Shola” dress, a taupe-colored fitted frock that showed off her slim figure, retails for $340 and can be purchased on, although it’s sure to sell out quickly (UPDATE: Reiss’s webste is crashing due to the high volume of traffic today with more of the dresses going up online soon!). She accessorized her look with an Anya Hindmarch black clutch. And this wasn’t the first time the Duchess chose Reiss for a momentous occasion — she picked a cream-colored dress by the high street label to wear in her engagement photos several months before the royal wedding. Tell us: What do you think of the Duchess of Cambridge’s latest Reiss pick? –Kim Peiffer, with reporting by Monique Jessen
