President Obama: Buckingham Banquet with Michelle!

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama attend a state banquet hosted by Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday (May 24) at Buckingham Palace in London, England.

Michelle wore a white Tom Ford gown with matching gloves, while the President donned a tux with a white bow tie.

Earlier in the day, the couple met with British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha at Downing Street and visited Westminster Abbey.

Barack and Michelle also had a brief meeting with Prince William and his wife, Duchess Catherine, at Buckingham Palace.

FYI: Michelle wore a blue double wool crepe Narciso Rodriguez coat over a Roksanda Ilincic dress and a House of Lavande 1960s jeweled belt during the day.

    Michelle is too big boned for my taste. Women her built are cursed I tell ya..not feminine at all.

  • C / G

    They’re a beautiful and glamorous couple. The PMs wife, although lovely, doesn’t have the level of sophistication that Michelle has.



  • BEAN

    They all look lovely. That tornado in the US came at a pretty bad time. He will be expected to fly over there asap and conservatives especially will look at this visit as unnecessary and that home matter smatter most. Hope they consider the Icelandic volcano ash situation.

    Isn’t it great that our president and his wife is having a great time while our country is experiencing a natural disaster. Just like the last oil spill disaster, these two were out having a great time making sure that our tax dollars provided their leisure.

  • Marie

    there’s something about this mash-up that makes my heart soar :). the obamas both look stunning! and the queen! she’s adorable :D. it’s so nice to see them come together!

  • Lilly

    Obama has very nice teeth. Almost as white as the Queens milky skin

  • Cheryl

    Class, intelligence, educated, hard working and sincere. Love the Obamas! So proud that they are our “FIRST” family.

  • shelly

    Did he really sign the guest book 24 May 2008? Yes, he did. If Bush had done that he would have been mocked and ridiculed for a week.

  • Lucy

    I don’t think the white dress was a good choice. It makes her hips look bigger. She’s a beautiful woman and has a nice body…they should have picked something better for her.

  • rog

    @may: yes with visions of our news channels flashing back and forth from tornado devastation to the Obama’s visiting lavishly with royals. I’m sick to my stomach over it!!

  • Too Skinny

    Vote “Green Party” and stop getting played by the “Good Cop (Dems)/Bad Cop (Repubs)” mind game.

    GP means localized business opportunities, locally farmed and raised produce and livestock, cleaner transportation and lower taxes!

  • eww

    @Lucy: Her body is gross! big huge butt and she is quite large with fat arms. she looks like a Big ape with a horse’s smile.

  • dejavu

    He’s turned out to be a bigger warmonger than Bush…the biggest disappointment after such high hopes. All those innocent people still living lives in terror it’s heart breaking. It’s galling to listen to him spouting off about peace when his version is about murdering people..since when do you bring about peace by invading other people’s countries and killing their children, mothers, fathers….sad, sad world…but hey if it helps to keep his rich buddies with their investment portfolios in oil, minerals and arms how can that be bad thing?

  • Lucy

    @eww: oh, well…we just share different opinions. Obviously, she doesn’t look like a supermodel (I don’t mean the anorexic ones) but I think she’s fine.

  • Woo Fab

    I love Queen Elizabeth, she’s nice.
    The dress of michelle is beautiful!

  • Paris

    Omg the queen expression is priceless LOL

  • nkenk

    @may: I have one thing to say to you: Katrina.

  • HRH Party One

    Jared, you completely screwed it up. Prince William and his wife, Duchess Catherine? Wrong. You can NEVER call her “Duchess Catherine”, it’s The Duchess of Cambridge!!! You simply call her The Duchess, or just Kate, but no Duchess Catherine. STUDY it!

  • and I voted for him

    Obama has turned out to be a total disappointment. At best he has held the status quo, which is bad enough, at worst he has accelerated America’s slide towards corporate fascism. Our politicians are owned, the people have been cut out of the equation by money. Americans need to wake up and get real and stop being drawn in by the political theater we are presented with by our lame corporate media.

  • Gabby


    And thus the sum total of his attributes.

  • shelly

    Obama managed to insult the Queen again. Screwed up the toast to the point no one drank it. really bad.

    He couldn’t wait for the orchestra to wait for God save Queen to be finished so he launched in and insulted the Queen.

    If they can’t mind their manners, then stay the hell at home!

    They don’t have to wonder why they weren’t invited to the Royal Wedding.

  • what spill?

    bet the queen thanked him for his efforts to gloss over the destruction of the gulf of mexico by British Petroleum

  • SL


    Go fcuk yourself. You clearly know nothing about anything.

  • dee

    This trip has been scheduled for months and cancelling that and doing what exactly… is just pointless. If he goes to Joplin or other tornado hit areas, he’ll just be accused anyway of doing photo-ops and frankly I don’t think the people give a s**t if the president comes, they’re too busy trying to survive..i’m sure he’s on top of it anyway…

  • carrienae

    They look gorgeous! Michelle was stunning same as Hillary Clinton during the dinner with the royals. Oh, boy! What a wonderful night!

  • dinwit

    She looks DIVINE in that white dress. DIVINE. I actually want that look for my WEDDING one day! WOW! HATERS step aside. They look great. Didnt make it to the wedding cause he was busy getting B Laden but they sure got front row seats at a side by side dinner. Hey where are the pics with the newlyweds. I saw them somewhere earlier. Bravo Michelle!

  • melissa

    Michelle looks terrible – she wore that same dress, or one very similar recenetly. it looks awful. she’s needs a stylist

  • Halli


    No she didn’t. Stop lying bitter troll.

    Michelle looks great. I love her purple day time dress and hair the best!

  • Shell

    I think more people are upset that if this was Bush doing this…Liberals would have been on his nuts.
