BEST DRESSED : SAMANTHA CAMERON VS MICHELLE OBAMA

The fashion steaks were high at the White House dinner in honour of David and Samantha Cameron.  Sam Cam has more than held her own against the ever- stylish Michelle O during the Cameron’s trip to the USA.  The ultimate battle though, was on the red carpet in Washington.

Samantha Cameron wore a blue chantilly lace dress by British fashion designer Alessandra Rich.  Michelle Obama wore a strapless teal dress by Marchesa with a statement Tom Binns beaded necklace.

Sam Cam’s dress was very pretty but looked frumpy and too school-mistressy for a formal occasion.  Worn with a much shorter underskirt, the design is sexier and shows off the gorgeous chantilly lace.

Michelle Obama played it safe with a simple but structured off-the-shoulder dress.  Her choice of necklace, a Tom Binns multi-stringed set of blue toned beads, added some interest to the look.

Overall, a bit disappointing. Must try harder, ladies.
