I find the duchess to be quite elegant for an average 60+ year old. Plus, she is always so earthy and cheerful. That excuses any unfortunate outfits for me.

Here is a full length pic of the Lovely Bones premiere dress.

On that note, I don't like this dress. I find the detailing to be quite odd and velvet in general is a hard material to pull off. I liked the purple velvet dress she wore a few years back and there was the deep red velvet dress Princess Mary wore that was beautiful, but otherwise, I'm not a fan. The neckline is nice however, and I like how the dress falls to the floor.

Wasn't a great fan of the Lovely Bones dress either. I think it lacked shape, and Camilla needs to wear things that have a waist. And usually I think she looks very appropriate (although Charles ought to let her buy more shoes!).

I remember a few weeks ago howls about Camilla wearing fur in Canada... just this past week I saw Crown Princess Mary in fur at the hunt and Princess Marie in Asia in a fur. Not a word of criticism was spoken about their furs, which leads me to suspect I'm right, different rules apply to Camilla.

I do think she would benefit from better underpinnings, to help hold the piece together. Where is Sam?

There are different rules for Camilla but I also think that most of the people who follow the British Royals have a different set of rules/agendas/beliefs than other royals. Both Marie and Mary have received a lot of flak for wearing fur in the past as well.

That being said, I think Camilla looked nice her fur. And I wish she would stay away from those big formal dresses that she sometimes wear. They do nothing for her.

I'm not saying this dress is completely awful BUT it does have a sort of "halloween" touch to it

It has a definite "costume" vibe to it. While I find the outfits recently worn by the Duchess to be generally lovely, I have been a bit bored by them. She really needs to get all her clothes properly tailored. She has a pretty decent figure but her wardrobe does nothing for it really. And Shoes, Camilla has a great pair of gams and she needs some great shoes to show them off. I wish she would start wearing scarves more. I find they always had a classiness to a look.

Although I have seen the Duchess wear better dresses. I don't think that we are giving this one enough credit. I have a feeling this dress actually looks better in person, reason being, is that velvet photographs shiny and therefore looks costumey. I would love to see this one in person in daylight, I bet it is really pretty on Camilla.

I guess my views are similar to yours - the dress may not appear to be Camilla's best, but I think it is fine. It may well look much better in person than in the picture, but I thought the colours, the fabric and even the fit was just fine. This was the very dress that was worn for the gala dinner in Canada with the Governor General in Ottawa just a few days before the premiere, and I have to say Camilla looked lovely that evening. See weblink below.

I thought the hat that Camilla wore yesterday was a great one - very fitting, and co-incidentally, very similar to the bear skins' own hats. The Queen Mum, Jackie O and HM have all used hats like this - certainly a design classic!

I first glance I wasn't too keen on it but I do quite like it actually. I love big hats with a passion and it does have a very Queen Mum feel to it.

Is Camilla at Hogwarts taking in the new Harry Potter flick? Come on, DoC, hop on your broom stick and fly straightway to the stylist for a new outfit, I'm scared of this one!

Agreed, there is a very QM feel to it.

I like the outfit from the 21st, brown tweed & velvet touches look very nice on the DoC.
