She looks sensational !
I think it's another Bruce Oldfield creation, who already made this litle number :

Princess Letizia Of Spain And Camilla Duchess Of

One of her top ten evening dresses imo !

Rich, luxuriant color and that draping neckline suits Camilla so well. The turquoise jewelry is just so marvelously displayed.

Camilla is batting 1,000 in my book. Her use of the turq with the gown works brilliantly.

Didn't she wear this dress already? It is sooo beautiful and only for very special occasions, so I wonder?

I don't think she has. The Duchess has worn a similar gown as seen in Nico's post, but not this one.
Camilla looks absolutely stunning. Purple is definitely her colour.

Camilla looks stupendous this evening, only word for it. I tend not to like turquoise jewellery, but I really like this set, and it works with the dress beautifully.

This is an absolutely gorgeous necklace and I love those diamond fringes. The earrings are just so beautiful, too.

Camilla looks absolutely wonderful in purple. I love the way the neckline is raised to frame her décolletage and highlight her necklace and earrings. Strangely, I think the richness of the purple makes the turquoise look almost luminous.

not a native speaker alert!

It is not only what she wears here, it is how she wears it. Her expression, her body language is all: "Isn't that cool, I can't believe that I can pull this stunt off either" to me.

I find that totally endearing.

In theory, the turqouises don't fit with purple, but here the combination is a real winner.

Yes, a woman certainly knows when she looks good and Camilla knows it, I believe!

I do love the purple velvet dress. It's very elegant, beautiful and sophisticated. It doesn't even need a lot of embellishments, but the jewels she chose looked fabulous.

Wouldn't have chosen turquoise with purple, but it shows it off. A very good neckline for the DoC and she uses it often. Sumptuous color and fabric.

Her day outfits were very nice also, especially the purple hat and saphire brooch. Unfortunately, seems as if she caught MM's thick, dark hose disease!

I disliked the heavy hose as well, but loved the hat paired with the coat and that gorgeous brooch.

I love her confidence and her overall choices, very much. But I do think she needs to heed the advice of my late aunt and do something to stop the bleeding of her lipstick onto her upper lip. There are products to take care of this (my aunt managed to keep that from happening until she was 86). I'm also not liking the freckled chest and the bit of cleavage she shows - it's not the cleavage itself, exactly, it's the skin tone - a bit of foundation here might be nice). Gosh, I sound old myself.

But the big turquoise necklace does pull attention right down that way - so I'd say do a bit more camouflage (I'm sure she reads our every word!)

Shoulders and collarbone look elegant and in proportion to the dress, and her smile is the most important part of her look. Hair color/tone is excellent - which only points out the skin tone issue, for me, anyway. Face looks more peachy/pink than chest (etc.)

I agree - and the woman behind her is looking pretty fab, too. :-)

Hm... I might be the only one, but although I like the dress very much, I think something is not quite right with this look. Maybe it's the turquoises against purple, I'm not sure...
