Who Wore Jonathan Saunders Better? Samantha Cameron or Tamsin Egerton

Samantha Cameron took her second spin in this Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress, when she had lunch with the Queen and Prince Philip back in June in London.

On the runway this pretty baby blue and white printed dress features a striped black and green waistband plus a sexy cut-out from the neck to the waist.

Samantha’s version of the dress doesn’t have this cut-out. Not surprisingly.

She kept the rest of her look ‘meeting the Queen’ appropriate by pairing her dress with simple black heels.

Tamsin Egerton wore the same dress to attend the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final last month.

The British actress wore the runway version of the dress with the super revealing cut-out but opted to wear the dress without the belt.

She accessorized her outfit with lilac Nicholas Kirkwood leather Moccasin-inspired pees-toes heels and a black quilted Chanel shoulder bag.

Whilst I prefer Tamsin’s cool accessories, the dress is definitely missing the runway belt and I think this makes the cut-out way too revealing so my vote is going to Samantha.

The pop of green colour from the belt really livens up her outfit despite the conservative modifications.

Samantha Cameron In Jonathan Saunders – Prince Philip’s Birthday Lunch @ 10 Downing Street

Samantha Cameron followed in Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Michelle Obama footsteps by repeating her Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 dress in London today.

The PM’s wife gave her cracked print dress with a green waistband a second outing for lunch with the Queen and Prince Philip in celebration of his birthday.

Samantha had worn the dress a month ago, when she served lunch to the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street with Michelle Obama who was in town for her state visit.

Whilst I don’t have problem with repeats from Michelle, Catherine and Samantha, it would’ve been nice to see her wear something else for this high profile occasion, especially considering it was worn at exactly the same location.

Who Wore Peter Pilotto Better? Carey Mulligan or Samantha Cameron

Carey Mulligan selected look from Peter Pilotto’s Spring 2011 collection to wear to the Los Angeles Times ‘Young Hollywood’ Roundtable event back in November.

The darling young actress wore a slightly modified version of the dreamy chiffon dress, as her version features a shorter, fully printed lower half.

Carey kept things simple and only added a pair of blue satin peep-toe heels to her look. She wore her makeup light and wore her hair in a loosely pulled back bun.

Last week Samantha Cameron also wore the same modified version of the dress to meet President Obama and wife Michelle Obama on the steps of 10 Downing Street.

Also keeping her look minimal, Samantha added a pair of grey platform heels to the dress. She wore her down and straight and kept her makeup light.

Although both women look great in the dress, I’m voting for Carey on this one.

I love her cool but casual hairstyle and think the dress suits her eclectic style more. She brings a bit more attitude to the look than Samantha.

Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese & Samantha Cameron In Jonathan Saunders – Downing Street Barbecue

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron reunited today in London to serve food to members of the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street.

Michelle opted to wear a Tracy Reese Pre-Fall 2011 dress which I don’t think was quite the right choice for a barbecue on a sunny day.

The crystal-embellished black chiffon dress has a white print detail on the bodice, cuffs and skirt.

Despite the lightweight fabric, the look still feels so heavy when you compare Michelle to Samantha.

Samantha’s Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 short sleeve dress with a green waistband was much more summery and appropriate for the event.

Love that both women supported designers from their respective countries.

Michelle Obama In Roksanda Ilincic & Samantha Cameron In Peter Pilotto – 10 Downing Street

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron met again today on the steps of 10 Downing Street in London, on Day 1 of the Obama’s state visit.

The two fashion savvy ladies both wore British based designers.

Mrs O opted to wear Roksanda Ilincic who she’s worn before.

On this occasion she wore a purple drape neck Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2011 dress with a Narciso Rodriguez blue coat. The look was accessorized with a black belt and black kitten heels.

Purple appears to be Mrs O’s signature colour.

She’s radiant in purple.

Samantha Cameron opted to wear Peter Pilotto.

The design duo are having a great day because Rose Byrne also wore a look from their Spring 2011 collection last night.

Samantha’s Peter Pilotto dress is the same shorten version Carey Mulligan wore to the Los Angeles Times “Young Hollywood” Roundtable last year.

Grey pumps (thank god they’re not black) completed her look.
