I have to admit ... I 'm pleasantly surprised about Carla's outfit. Clearly she understands her role and how she needs to appear not only in public -- but with whom she is appearing. She is classically dressed and doesn't upstage the Queen. The reason she is wearing flats is obvious -- she would tower over everyone else -- especially her husband.

I can't wait to see wht she wears to the dinner!

I'm afraid I have to agree with of some of the sentiments echoed today - both the Queen and Camilla's clothes don't really do them justice. Camilla's suit is okay, though I am no fan of the leopard print. The embellishments on the lapels are nice though. The hat is just awful, and does not suit her at all - a shame as she is usually so elegantly dressed. I do wish she stuck to the traditional, slightly larger hats, she usually wears and stops experimenting with this beret style which really does her no favours. It would be great to see what all the ladies are wearing this evening - and hope that Camilla puts up a good show!

I think I must be the only one who likes Camilla's camp clobber. I think it's fab. I think she can carry off leopard print without looking like a drag queen and that's rare. I just love the hat too. I think it says glam.

I think Carla looks very nice and tasteful. She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn a little bit. And she was aware of her being very tall so she chose shoes without heels- more comfortable anyway.

Well, I'm truely amazed that Carla knows how to pull her hair away from her face!!!!
She is still wearing a dark drab color, but at least she looks like a proper 1st lady.
Good for her! It's about time.

I thought everything looked as if it was running smoothly. I love reading all your titbits about the 2 visitors thanks.I thought Carla looked lovely the shoes were a worry but the hubby is really short so wiser choice for that reason. I am not a Camilla fan and hate any sort of animal print but the Queen looked amazing I do love all her outfits particularly in the last 18months. Thanks for all the pictures so far.

Carla's outfit is very elegant. She looks every inch a french official lady. Some royals could learn something from her when it comes to overdone outfits.
I hope the visit comes off without any difficulties. It is after all a business trip - albeit with gala and tiaras.

There is a woman who made a courtesy to Carla, I wonder why...

The South African media said she was pregnant. But I have heard nothing else about it - is she?

After watching their arrival on TV, I'm reassured to see that all went well (except perhaps the light touch of Sarkozy's hand on Carla's during the parade at Windsor). Although this isn't a fashion thread, I didn't like very much how Camilla was dressed, especially the hat. However, I like Carla's style : the mix Audrey Hepburn/Jackie O. fits her pretty well.

I've got my fingers crossed for tonight. I'm rather keen to see a certain sash on Camilla.
