The color is beautiful, but the fabric is draped in such a way that the dress is very heavy-looking. It seems like there is too much fabric, and the neckline is very low. Not a flattering look for her.

I agree the color is great, but the dress mainly the neckline is just not flattering.

The colour is nice.
The fabric is great.

But...

I completely agree

And in the 2nd picture she looks bigger than she really is (or at least normally appears)

I like the colour and the fabric, but I don't like that neckline and the back of the dress on Camilla.

I don't like her style at all. I always feel like she just doesn't care how she looks.

in a year where the credit crunch has hit the headlines and the Queen has lead from the front by cutting cots Camilla manages to choose a designer dress that i am sure cost quite a bit of money yet it still looked a mess. I am sure one of her ususal desingers could have either made her anew one which would have cost less or hse could ahve followed the Queen's example by recycling - she has a big enough closet to choose from

That's a really nice looking hat. I'm not a fan of big hats on the Duchess. This one isn't over done. And the navy color looks great on her.

Oh Camilla! The Queen Unveils The New Statue Of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother - Pictures - Zimbio

This outfit is a mess. The dress is far to thin looking and summery - and a bit too short for someone of your years too (though perhaps it isn't, but it looks it to me hmm). The hat is okay, though oft repeated (okay - so I applaud the thrift!) and the shawl just looks chucked on. And black with navy is not right. All wrong - looks like she got dressed in a rush. Which perhaps she did - perhaps I should stop ranting and get a life ;-))

Looks like she found an old school uniform, stretched it, threw other "stuff" on top and went. A fashion plate, she has never been. Sometime she looks nice, mostly she looks awkward.

She just didnt make any effort today - she really shouldnt have combined a shawl with that dress a smart suit woudl have look so much better or a nice coat over the dress (take a look at Lady Sarah, Lady Helen, Lady Nicholas and especially the Duchess of Glouester who all excelled today)

Absolutely true... Despite of all things available to her (designers, milliners, and etc.), Duchess of Cornwall contrives to look awkward in ill-fitted dresses and sometimes poorly matched outfits. Duchess of Cornwall's look was unpolished, to say the least. A cheap-looking dress was aggravated a black shawl and black stockings. The Philip Treacy hat (I hope I am correct about the milliner) looked nice though.

It is all in the eye of the beholder, that much is clear from some of the examples put forward by other posters! For all anyone knows, the shawl may have been a personal gift from HM for the occasion.

IMO, nobody could see the dress clearly from the pictures shown on here and indeed the video's, it certainly didn't look cheap in real life.

Well, the hat looks ravishing & modern. Pearls are great, too. However, the dress and the cape dark blue and black plus a bit of white ... wasn't the best choice. Like a middle aged or elderly housewife for daily business, like a teacher in front of a class ... not at all like a royal in an event. The DoC sure can do better! I'd say, throw away this dress .

Her hat is lovely! I really like the color and design. Her outfit, on the other hand, looks baggy and frumpy. The jacket or shawl that she wore over her dress was too big. It looked like she was wearing a blanket.
