The ugly hat ruins the look for me, but the suit itself is nicely fitted and elegant, exactly the style opposite of her shapeless Canadian frocks - this is the direction for her to go, IMHO.

I have to agree that some of Camilla's outfits on her tour of Canada's were not as nice as some of the other ones. I did not come away as a fan of the cape, and not of the rabbit skin ensemble either. I agree she needed to be warm and comfortable, but I think greater thought was required there.

Love the suit and the hat, but what is that thing on her shoulder supposed to be? Reminds of any insect!

Isn't it a leek (the insect-like pin)?

Good suit, it makes her look as if she's lost a considerable amount of weight. Amazing what good tailoring can do!

It seems to me that diamond brooch is a Praying Mantis, or daddy long leg spider interpertation. (Nice to know that spunky CP Maxima isnt the only royal who likes spider pins!)

Tailoring is a wonderful thing, I with the Duchess would get all her clothes tailored correctly.

Im pretty sure its a Praying Mantis or Stick Insect. It was a gift from her father I think. Insect jewelry is an interesting theme, but cover anything in diamonds, and Im all for it.

I'm relieved I wasn't the only one who didn't like that outfit, and am I right in thinking she wore it again for her departure from Canada.

Yes, for whatever inexplicable reason she wore the whole disastrous outfit a second time for the departure ceremony in Canada.
(Instead of taking one look at herself in pictures wearing it and donating it immediately to the Salvation Army...)

From what I can see it looks like a beautiful dress.

This is a beautiful black suit! She actually looks more slender in it. I even like her hat too.

I see no reason either to connect the word 'elegant' to an outfit which looks like a well-worn, shapeless Victorian velvet bathrobe under a Victorian vicar velvet cloak...
Scarlett O'Hara did so much better with Tara's green velvet curtains.

Taste is an individual thing, and perhaps the author of the article considered the ensemble to be elegant. IMO, Camilla looked wonderful at the premiere, though it would have been nicer if we got some full length shots of her.

You are clearly entitled to your opinion, but here in the UK, there are a number of people who consider her elegant and well turned out at most times. She has got it wrong a few times, but I guess, most of us can confess to similar disasters.

The deeper colors and jewel tones are much more flattering to her coloring than the tan/grey numbers she often wears.
