Samantha Cameron - 70th Anniversary of D-Day Ceremony

Samantha Cameron was also in attendance, joining Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, at the ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day on Sword Beach on Friday (June 6) in Ouistreham, France.

Attending with her husband, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Samantha was the epitome of sophisticated chic in her tailored, heather gray suiting.

Fusing a structured silhouette with feminine lines, the one-button blazer featured a rounded strong shoulder and worked well both buttoned and unbuttoned over her white blouse and pencil skirt.

A gray fascinator added just the right touch of sleek charm to the look, with matching pumps completing the refined ensemble.

Samantha Cameron attended the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony in London on Friday evening wearing yet another look from one of her favourite London-based designers, Roksanda Ilincic.

On this occasion she was the red to Michelle’s white and Catherine’s blue on a very patriotic night for all concerned.

Sam’s Pre-Fall 2012 ensemble consisted of a red sleeveless top with a navy blue panel, which she paired with black pants.

A navy Emilia Wickstead belt completed her look.

Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha Cameron welcomed Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh to Number 10 Downing Street for lunch on a sunny day in London this afternoon.

The Queen doesn’t look best pleased.

Maybe it’s because Sam Cam stole her thunder wearing an almost identical blue-print look.

It’s uncanny how Samantha’s Jonathan Saunders star-print ombre short-sleeve dress is similar to the Queen’s printed skirt.

Grey suede pumps and a grey thin leather belt completed Samantha’s chic look.

Jonathan Saunders continues to be one of Samantha’s go-to designers.

Li Bingbing was actually the first to wear this Alessandra Rich blue lace ¾-length-sleeve belted dress, which is decorated with Swarovski crystals, from the Spring 2012 collection.

The Asian beauty wore the dress to Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party back in February.

She teamed her gown with Cindy Chao jewels and a Lana Marks clutch.

A slick updo and pretty pink lip colour completed her look.

Samantha Cameron wore the same gown the following month, but hers had a navy lining.

The PM’s wife wore her gown with a black leather belt, plus kept the black pussy bow that the gown was presented with.

Both women look amazing.

Whilst I admire Li Bingbing for making the look her own, I have to go with Sam Cam on this one.

I like the dress with a belt, plus I like the prim nature of the look with the pussy bow.

Samantha Cameron and Michelle Obama were both impeccably dressed as they stood alongside their powerful husbands for the official photo last night at the White House state dinner in Washington, DC.

The Prime Minister’s wife wore a dress by London-based Italian designer Alessandra Rich.

Sam’s gorgeous blue lace ¾-length-sleeve belted dress from the Spring 2012 collection was paired with black heels from Next.

The First Lady opted for a gown by British-born, American-based designer Georgina Chapman, by donning Marchesa.

Michelle’s off-the-shoulder silk gazar draped column teal gown was teamed with a stunning Tom Binns statement necklace.

This portrait neckline with a statement necklace is a familiar look for Mrs O, as she sported a similar look back in May last year for the Royal dinner.

I think they both look outstanding. I love the modern electric-blue gown on Sam and Mrs O looks so effortless, classic and regal.

On this occasion I couldn’t pick a favourite.

Can you?

David and Samantha Cameron are currently in the US on a three-day visit, so of course they caught up with the Obamas.

It’s always a magic moment for me when Samantha Cameron and Michelle Obama meet as they dress to impress without trying to upstage each other.

Earlier today at the official welcoming ceremony at the White House in Washington, DC, both ladies wore looks from their respective countries.

Samantha wore a Roksanda Ilincic tri-colour half-sleeve dress with an Emilia Wickstead navy belt and LK Bennett blue suede pumps.

Michelle complemented the PM’s wife by wearing a Zac Posen light-blue dress with a matching jacket for the occasion.

I love her silver pumps, they remind me of a pair I have been eyeing up in Zara.

Both women look amazing, but without bias, I’m going to give this fashion face-off to Sam Cam.

Her look feels fresher and less ‘ladies-who-lunch’ in comparison to Mrs O.

Whose look do you prefer?

Samantha’s Roksanda Ilincic dress is available to purchase from Browns Fashion.
