Some color at last ! Her best outfit so far indeed and as far i can see it's fitted and there's some "support" ahem.

Beautiful color; I so love these jewel tones. I think there's too much going on between the coat collar and the hat; would have preferred a plain collar with the addition of her choker. But Camilla looks wonderful and the coat is a great fit.

So she first wore a coat and hat and then took the hat off for the reception and changed into a jacket?

I like the colour very much. The coat and hat were very elegant, the jacket, hose and shoes less. The necklace was perhaps a bit too much together with all the ornamentation of the hat and collar. But all in all she looked very elegant at the memorial site.

I love the purple and the pearls.

Camilla wore a stunning blue gown for tonight's reception.
She matched it with gold clutch and fabulous necklace.

- The gown
- Jewellery

That's one of my favourite gowns of Camilla; she looks brilliant.


Earlier in the day, Camilla wore the same purple ensemble sans the hat and with matching purple shawl.
Now, I'm not a shawl fan myself, but she looks absolutely gorgeous.
I actually like the ensemble better like this than with the hat.
Even the flowers match her outfit.

Definitely deserving of a repeat. Camilla looks superb.

On the whole Camilla has dressed very well this trip. It'll be interesting to see if she freshens up her wardrobe for Canada/Australia/New Zealand.

I totally agree! The cut of the neckline and bodice really look elegant on Camilla and the colour beautiful. Like most jewel colours, it suits her well.

I don't mind repeats when it looks as stunning as this! Beautiful color, fit and jewels on Camilla; that's got to be one of my favorite diamond necklaces and the earrings are just sublime.

I also like her big bold scarf on the purple outfit; nothing like a statement accessory and the bouquet is indeed lovely against the color.

The dress and jewels are gorgeous. Camilla is outstanding, best dressed of the night in my opinion.

I love that dress on her! It's so classic and elegant.

But, do you not also think that the sleeves of the dress should have been a little shorter, maybe somewhere around the elbows; to see the forearm of a lady may be very pretty.

Love the cornflower blue evening gown with the portrait color on the DoCornwall, nice gems to go with the outfit too!

Camilla looked really lovely this evening. I liked the dress great color and a nice fit. The earrings and necklace add that magic sparkle. Prince Charles looks very handsome as well.

I absolutely adore the purple outfit and the light blue dress. Both looked very elegant on the Duchess. I will have to agree with those who said that purple was her color. She wears it very, very well.

Camilla wore the same gown in Spain last year
http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/C...pVz0LrDAkl.jpg

She certainly had a great wardrobe on this trip. Good to see her more and more ease into this role and finding out what works best for her. Its important that a future Queen in Britain can pull off the real bling & regal look, no problem for Camilla.

Certainly one of her better evening gowns, but the heaviness and width of the diagonal band from the neckline across the bodice to the hip gives her a major sag - quite literally.
With this element less pronounced, the dress would really work in a more flattering way.
Pity that she chose to wear exactly the same jewels as in Spain.

I agree, Camilla is capable of pulling off some truly magnificent outfits and especially jewellery. For instance, few could wear the Delhi Durbar Tiara "properly", but Camilla certainly did. In a way, she is the greatest hope of carrying on Queen Mary's legacy jewellery-wise.

On a side note, the gowns both Camilla and Letizia wore in Spain are my favourites of the respective ladies; Letizia always looks gorgeous in red, whereas Camilla's colours appear to be blue (all shades) and purple.
