William and Kate have barely landed on New York soil, and already the chattering heads have revved up the fashion controversy: which royal couple in America reigns supreme? Or, as the NYMag headline put it: William and Kate Arrive in NYC, Obamas Challenge Their Fashion Supremacy – And We’ll Never Be Royals
(“Royals” h/t Lorde)
So, while BO and MO dressed up in their royal finery:
to entertain the family and Tom Hanks at the 37th Annual Kennedy Center Honors
William and the pregnant Kate arrived in New York dressed, by comparison, as commoners.
Which led the magazine to wonder:
How are American girls supposed to get excited about Kate's elegant but safe cocktail dress when Michelle's wearing the head of state equivalent of a Frozen costume?
Later today Prince William will be meeting with BO at the White House to discuss the international trafficking of wildlife. Boy, I’m with the Prince on this; I think we should stop participating in this sort of trafficking of animals too:
Jihad Ahmed Mujstafa Diyab, one of 6 GITMO detainees released as “refugees” to Uruguay
Latif Mehsud: the “repatriated” Pakistani Taliban commander
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to see if I can get in touch with Princess Kate to see if I might be able to get the name of her hair stylist. Ours is about to go the way of Chuck Hagel.
