Fashion throwdown: Kate vs Michelle

There’s always something about a royal visit that inspires comparisons.

The latest is by the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and Prince William who arrived in New York on Sunday night for a three-day visit.

On Monday, while Prince William went to Washington to meet with President Barack Obama, the Duchess attended a private reception at the Carlyle Hotel.

Michelle Obama graced the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony for recipients including Tom Hanks and Sting.

Somehow, the Daily News turned that coincidence into a fashion face-off — the US first lady in her Monique L’huillier gown versus Kate in a lacy black cocktail dress and a plum coat by Seraphine.

The winner?

You decide.
