More generally, I also note at least one pair of gauntlet cuffs, and also that many of the buttons on display appear to be of the flat headed variety faced with satin, presumably to agree with the lapels of the coat.

Looks like a shawl collar with the outside edge unfaced. Kinda the reverse of what you see people often do with the satin edging.

Kate definitely looks the best out of everyone

+1.  She looks horrible.  Even in the other white dress, she looks like a giant broom.  This is the best that the Presidential family can do? 

 

The posture of the Obamas in the first pic reminds me of the pose description I read from someone on here - the "zombie lunge".  Love that one.

 

Looks like we've got to cede dress and poise to the Brits.  I guess for ourselves we'll just have to be satisfied with bein' the best at blowin' shit up.
