Camilla's boobs

It is remarkable that from let's say King Louis XIII until Queen Victoria all royal and noble ladies took honour in presenting their powdered bonbonella's to everyone in the Palace. Remarkable that in the third millennium people are complaining about Camilla's splendour (I do not only mean the glitzing diamonds and rubies).

Come on ladies, it is 2007!

Haveing said that: Victorian morale was suffocating at the British Court while (see the old pictures) on the Continent the ladies continued with the super-feminine mode (think about Sissi). Also in commoner's life you see this (the dirndl dresses in Germany, Austria, Switzerland).

Ah! You forget this is the age of heroine chic, of rail thin bodies and consequentially, minds!
One is only allowed 'splendour' if it comes courtesy of a Plastic Surgeon!

Do you think it was wise for Camilla to show that much clevage especially at her age?

If you've got it...

In saying that I don't believe Camilla exhibited her breasts to any great extent. All we saw was but a bit of cleavage and as has been mentioned, this piece of jewellery must be worn with an outfit by where the neckline is arched.

Look at Dame Helen Mirren (I make reference to her only because she is a Dame.lol.) at the Golden Globes. She looked exquisite and did not shy away from a plunging open neckline. She made it work and her breasts made it work..it was wonderful! And she is older than Camilla too.

When done tastefully it works and I think Camilla did an alright job of managing what's reasonable and what's not.

Breasts and diamonds! Boy do I know alot of guys who would not complain And its nice to think that Charles also gets pleasure from looking at his wife when she's all dressed up. Its nice.

Oh, I thought Helen Mirren was younger than Camilla. Well maybe her boobies did make the neckalace look nicer.
Ewwww this is soo taboo discussing Camilla's chest.

Mirren is older than Cornwall by two years

And also, are the earrings Camilla wore to the white tie gala part of the suite given to a Mrs Keppel from Edward VII?

I thought so but can't be certain.

IMO, I think the necklace would be better suited as a tiara. I seems to weigh Camilla down. I don't think the dress is inappropriate, although I do think that the necklace drew too much attention away from her face to her breasts and that's way everyone seems to think the dress was not up to royal standards. I bet if you put it on as a tiara, you wouldn't notice her breasts at all in the same dress.

I also, would favour its conversion into a tiara. It would look amazing imo

If it were, I'd like to see the spikes shortened. The bits taken off could then be made into a brooch or earrings, or maybe both.

If she wore it as a tiara as it is, it would be huge. I think she'd be accused of trying to look like the Statue of Liberty!

I rather like the necklace. Nice and substantial with a simple cut dress.

The cleavage wasn't that shocking.

Really? I think if it were worn as a tiara that the height should remain as is. Perhaps using the featured spikes and ruby's as the actual tiara but keeping (what seems to me and as Warren pointed out the possibility) the circular part of the necklace as the necklace.

The photoshopped photos do look as though she's wearing a peacock on her head. That thing is bigger than the Delhi Durbar tiara; I should think it'd be awfully heavy.

You would probably be surprised to find out how light in weight it infact is, Elspeth.

I wish I would start documenting interesting titbits of information that I come across. I do know that the Poltimore tiara, the Queen Desiree parure and even the Brazilian diadem worn by Queen Silvia are all of light weight. You wouldn't necessarily think that so, but it's rather deceiving.

My guess is that the neckalce, if worn as a tiara, really wouldn't be that heavy at all. Perhaps It could do with the removal of a row but nothing drastic

What has age got to do with it?

I think remodelling it would be a bit of an insult to the person who gave it to Camilla. If it came from a Head of State in the Middle East, I think it would send a message that she didn't really care about the necklace, just the diamonds and rubies. I don't think HRH is like that so I don't think it'll be turned into a tiara any time soon.

Well at a certain age the skin is not as taut and the flesh is not as firm, giving an overripe look. A slightly higher neckline might be more flattering.

I also don't think it should be turned into a tiara. It would definintely insult the gift givers. I think she looked good and I loved the necklace to me camilla can carry off big neklaces .

Many of those large necklaces can be converted to tiaras without any damage. And the BRF has been known to reset jewels in the past. Also, any good jeweler would be able to adapt the setting so that certain sections are removable to be worn as clips or pendants, etc.

Not on everybody and it is not necessarily an age related phenomenon. There are many men and women of tender years who would be well advised to cover up.

It might be nice to turn the collar into a tiara and leave the rest as a necklace I suppose.
