Kate Middleton Michelle Obama meeting May 2011.jpg

The moment when a Duchess met a First Lady...

Yesterday all eyes were on the meeting between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Obamas on their state visit of Britain. The two couples met in an informal setting at Buckingham Palace ahead of the Obamas' official welcome by the Queen. Michelle Obama opted for a shiny floral print Barbara Tfank Resort 2011 dress, which she teamed with a pink cropped jacket.

Continuing her passion for the high street, Kate Middleton wore a taupe coloured dress from one of her favourite labels, Reiss. The "Shola" dress with it's angled panels helped to highlight her super-slim figure.

Of course keen fashion followers were quick to snap up the dress which has caused the Reiss website to crash completely. Reiss stores have also been inundated with phone calls from customers eager to get their mitts on the Shola. Of course the Duchess chose a white Reiss dress for when she announced her engagement back in January.
