    At a recent meeting at Buckingham Place, were the newly wed Duchess of Cambridge, and one of the worlds most beautiful women and Americas forst lady MRS Obama were to meet. HRH the Duchess Of Cambridge was to wear a simple $270:00 dress to meet the Obamas, setting off a fashion frenzy, were the fashion house who created the dress Reiss are now scrambling to meet orders. Yet Americas First lady does not seem to have the same effect on the women of America or the world for that matter.

    Americas first lady has been said to be a fashion icon since before her husband got into office. lol.

    I don't know what you're on about exactly. So, a beautiful woman chooses a "cheap" dress and you think Michelle doesn't have the same effect. I'd say you're wrong and I don't even care about it. lol

    I have to disagree on the fact that Michelle is not creating a stir in America's fashion trends. I have read that her wardrobe is very appealing to mainstream American women and she has been compared (to a lesser degree) to the trends Jackie set soooo many years ago.

    Now how much do you think the Fist lady's dress cost the people of America? I'm sure HM Queen Elizabeth was too wear something recycled from her dressing room. Not to say we would want the first lady to dress like a bag Lady for ones Head of State.

    I'm not sure it cost us anything. The President gets a salary, but I'm not aware it includes a wardrobe allowance. Laundry & dry cleaning costs, perhaps, as part of the White House household expenses.

    UK celebrity culture is invasive, obsessed and absolutely nuts - way beyond the standard American or Australian cult-of-the-celebrity culture.

    Michelle's dress cost $2520 and Kate's is $283. I think Michelle's way of dressing appeals to a mainly fashion savvy crowd which people will look to her as a long term style icon whereas Kate has a grounded approach and wears clothing that many people can obtain.
    Michelle is a bit hit and miss with her looks, at times it seems she's too eager to shine or the occasion is inappropriate and it's the clothes that garner the attention than her but she's daring and that works in her favor. I'd say some of the first lady's clothes are free considering the amount of media attention she gets. Her stylist would source labels for her and obtain some sort of exclusiveness (for example, no one would wear the same label to an event or the particular design would not be available for a period of time after she wore it) to keep her ahead of the fashion pack. But they both dress for their roles in their society.
