I was shopping yesterday and a lady asked for a "Camilla Collar". The shop assistant didn't have a clue but I poked my nose in and said, "Do you mean Camilla as in Charles and?". She said yes and that she'd noticed that all Camilla's jackets including her wedding gown had a certain shape to the collar and she wanted one. She said a friend had asked for a "Camilla Collar" and she'd got one - so, has HRH made a mark on the fashion world?

I like her collars. They are very elegant and flattering for all women especially older women.

She looks great. Pink has always been one of her best colors and I like the outfit and of course her trademark pearls. Is it just me or has she lost weight. She seems to have a better figure.

That's because she has someone with deep pockets is willing to spend a fortune making her into a "silk purse". She is not an unattractive woman, but has little style of her own. Her hair looks fine. She is comfortable and it is nice looking.

According to some, me included, there was a general conspiracy by the media to portray her as a scruff without any style. We have all read, I'm sure, the articles that told us that actually, she did scrub up well and enjoyed dressing up. She certainly wouldn't have gone to any of the hunt or polo balls looking rough.

Of course she has had to try out different things now she is the wife of the prince and constantly in the media spotlight but, is it really any different to how anyone would react in the same circumstances?

Exactly this I thought on Laura´s wedding. But for women of her age it is extremly hard to hold figure. Camilla has to fight forever against her weight.

I tend to think she is now showing a style of her own, which has a lot to do with being comfortable and nice looking. She seems to favour simple lines in her clothes - including that nice collar someone else mentioned - that suit her body. I think she looks great.

And it seems she is performing duties on her own now. That hadn't registered with me before now.

Good point. Similarly, it seems that one should be skeptical of anything written about celebrities and socialites because it is oftentimes deragatory. Camilla is nearly a senior citizen and dresses like women her age do. It is bizarre that she gets criticized for doing so ... but that's just the way things are nowadays.

The Duchess has adjusted extremely well. I like the fact that she's taken more of a supporting role rather than upstaging her husband. She'll make a great Queen. As for the clothes: perfect for her role. She has not put a foot wrong in the past year.

Yes, I agree with you on all points. They always say that any great man has a woman behind him. People are taking more notice of Charles now and that is due in part to Camilla being happy to stay in the background and support him.:)

HRH seems so busy these days. I think it's wonderful and quite surreal for those of us who have followed her in pre-marriage days.
