Not a bad look at all. I like the glittery bits and the hat.

From frumpy to stylish , and vice versa, in just a few days.
That's the Camilla we love ...

You are right, there are different facets to each of us, and I guess, for Camilla, they get reflected in her choice of attire.

Wow, she is looking great here

A little insight about Bruce Oldfield, the man behind some of the most successful outfits of the duchess :

He is the one to 'blame' for Camilla's bold designs. Her suits use to be plain w/o all the embellishments, pockets and pleats.

She needs classic designs and classic styles, not plunging necklines and glitter.

Her suits from the 80s & 90s and early 2000s were styled better than the current crop.

Are we talking about the same outfits ? Bruce Oldfield made dresses precisely without plunging neclines and far more structured than the outfits made by Valentine.

I think both Oldfield and Valentine took Camilla away from her 'natural' style.

I think the longer they are with her the more they 'experiment'. Rather than enhance her shape with suits with longer jackets, they create patterns and pleats with large pockets on the hips. This make her look wider rather than thinner.

Also, didn't like the suit she wore for the David Frost memorial and the stockings should have been black.

If I could afford bespoke wardrobe, I would never approach Mr. Oldfield. His creations scream cheap. It seems to me the UK is devoid of any sartorial talent, with a notable exception of the great Alexander McQueen.

Camilla's clothes always look like they are made from bits & pieces of material.

I am wondering if she is recycling her mother's clothes.

Camilla Parker Bowles Undertakes Engagements - Pictures - Zimbio

Can there be a better advert for quality British tailoring than Camilla in her sharply cut tweed coat when she was conducting engagements in Sussex.

Her hair and makeup look really nice in these pictures. The coat is very good too. These types of coats that are tailored so very well suit her.
