Seeing Spots

Cameron is the spitting image of French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy as she steps out in a Dior-like polka-dot dress—only it’s a £65 frock from Marks & Spencer. According to reports, Cameron liked the sold-out dress so much that when she ran into M&S CEO Stuart Rose at a party, she told him how much she loved it and he helped her get one. Only a size 14 could be found, however, so an in-store tailor did the rest.
