Did everyone watch the royal wedding on Friday? I thought Kate Middleton—now the Duchess of Cambridge—looked gorgeous, elegant, and timeless. I couldn’t help but think of Grace Kelly. I also loved seeing the parade of bold hats on the wedding guests, though one high-profile attendee made a fashion faux pas on the big day.
Samantha Cameron, the wife of British Prime Minister David Cameron, ruffled feathers by opting against wearing a hat, as is customary. Instead, she wore sparkling hair jewels pinned to her hair. Her dress was nice, but she didn’t look as formal as the event required. And it seems strange to me that the First Lady of Britain would completely ignore the dress code.
The lesson? Even if you’re the First Lady, you should always heed the dress code. Otherwise you will stick out like a sore thumb!
