Oh, Mrs. Cathy! Don’t you and Bill look all modern and shit?

Actually, that’s not quite true. Bill looks all modern and shit. You look all charmingly retro. Sort of.
We frickin’ LOVE that dress and love that she chose something so bold to wear. But one look at the Jackie Kennedy-esque matching hat, shoes, and bag, and we both got stunning migraines instantaneously. Way to bring a good dress down, Duchess.
And don’t come back at us with “tradition” or “rules.” There’s nothing in the job description that says she has to accessorize like an American First Lady 50 years ago.
Still, we do love that dress. And Bill’s suit.
