She looks quite lovely in the gown, perfect for a theatrical event as such.

Certainely not a homerun tonight but the DOC wanted apparently to keep it simple:

At least it's fitted ...

Actually I quite like it. Sometimes we confuse "current fashion" with reality. Camilla knows what she feels comfortable in and to be honest, she's the one that has to feel confident and smile for hours on end.

I don't think there's a woman out there that hasn't had the awful experience of feeling uncomfortable and less confident because the wore something that looked great on the hangar, at home in the mirror, and one you left the house, makes you feel conspicuous and uncomfortable in the worst sort of way.

I was wondering about her shoes but then I thought it lifted the colour just as her darker sapphires did.

I was looking at this article and the first photo caught my eye. I think it was only the wind but it looked like her hair had been styled differently and, I thought it looked really great.

I am not sure the dress is an unqualified succcess - its fine, and I suspect will get enough use over the years, but nothing special, IMO! I guess it was designed to be a cool summer dress, discrete, not too revealing - so I guess could get used for overseas trips to the ME, Asia, Africa and the Carribbean.

March 29, 2011 - Dotted skirt and a cream/beige jacket. The jacket washes her out, does not flatter her. She would've looked better if she matched it with a dark grey jacket or brown.

This ensemble is very similar to the navy spotted skirt with the navy jacket that Camilla used extensively last summer.

The color is pretty and so is the beading. Not much else to say, it doesn't really do much for her imo.

You are right, there are a few more pictures available now. The whole ensemble looks quite nice.

She looks a bit schloopy but actually not that bad. Is there a gala set for this evening?

I am familiar with the term "schloopy" (sloppy? droppy?), but I do think she looks very smart.

Camilla does not look bad but I don't like the fact the dress is a much whiter shade than the lovely coat which does give the first impression of a sloppy slip which is a pity.

Many thanks.

I think the coat and the dress themselves are both lovely, but I suspect they were not tailored to go together, hence the mismatched lengths.
