Royal Wedding: Samantha Cameron’s body-con look

Samantha Cameron, wife of Prime Minister David Cameron, has long been a champion of British fashion. Previously the creative director of leather goods and stationary purveyor Smythson, she has used her current role as political spouse to fly the flag for the fashion industry by attending runway shows wearing an array of British designer duds, and hosting a reception for designers at 10 Downing Street during London Fashion Week.

So it’s no surprise that her royal wedding ensemble is anything but traditional. The body-hugging, shibori-dyed, emerald green Burberry shift certainly sets her apart from the crowd. And she skipped the hat altogether in favor of chic-looking hair clips. Whether or not it’s appropriate for the occasion, well, I’m sure there will be a lot to say about that. But it does prove that Mrs. O isn’t the only first lady who can play the fashion game.
