The Obama’s weren’t the only American’s in town to attend the Buckingham Palace State Banquet in London yesterday.

Tom Hanks his gorgeous wife Rita Wilson were spotted leaving Claridge’s hotel enroute to Buckingham Palace for dinner with President Barack Obama and the Queen.

Like the President, Tom also wore a white bow tie which was clearly the theme for the evening.

Rita was dazzling wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 gown.

Her nude off-the-shoulder tulle gown was embroidered with golden embellishments.

She kept the gold theme going by adding gold accessories.

I would’ve been tempted to add a belt to this look, but I think Rita manages to work this look well without one.
