Did the First Lady and the Queen pick out their white dresses together? I was so surprised to see them wearing the same color!

Michelle Obama is known for her stellar sense of style — and I’m wondering if the Queen decided to take advantage of the First Lady’s visit and ask for a quick fashion consultation! Both women turned up at the State Banquet at Buckingham Palace on May 24, in gorgeous (yet super similar) white gowns. While Michelle opted for a flowing Tom Ford gown, complete with long gloves, the Queen went for a long-sleeved look, also incorporating gloves with her get-up!

Seeing them both show up in white gave me a funny vision of the Queen and Michelle in a dressing room, trying on outfits and excitedly showing one another like teenage girls. Okay, so even if that didn’t happen, it’s still quite a coincidence!

Michelle seems to have an affinity for white gowns, but they all seem a bit bridal for my taste. While she looked stunning, I think I like it better when she’s wearing color. Do you agree?
