Agree. I think that this coat is very 'her'. IMO Camilla looked nice during her visit to Eastbourne.

Today at the State Visit, the DOC in navy and Sabina Higgins in a flattering pink. Sabina's hat is kinda edgy!

Camilla and Sabina both look lovely. Navy suits Camilla well, and I like that shade of pink Sabina is wearing.

The ensemble is absolutely unflattering. The hat and the choker are fine. Mrs. Higgins' ensemble is marginally better.

The color suits Camila, but that's about it.

The Duchess of Cornwall was her usual charming self. Mrs Higgins made a faux-pas by offering a gloved hand for a handshake while Camilla did the right thing and offered a bare hand. I know that Queen Elizabeth has her own ideas about glove etiquette but in general a handshake is offered with a bare right hand. That is why we so often see royal ladies with one gloved hand, holding a glove. A general exception is made for long elbow gloves.

But this is just a detail. All participants looked great, President Higgins looked a bit eccentric but charming.

I agree that the outfit Camilla is wearing is a bit unflattering. It is also awfully dark and dreary for a Spring day.

She's a bit going on in years to be wearing her skirts above the knee . It's a great look on Katherine. Personally I think if one is over 60, that ship has sailed.

I once worked with a woman who was among the original mini-skirt wearers in the '60s. When minis made one of their 'mini' comebacks, the woman wore one to work and said, "I'm glad I've still got the legs for mini-skirts." One of the teenagers in the office said, "It's not your legs, it's your (60-year-old) face."

Ouch! But true.

At the State Banquet for the Irish President tonight, Camilla is wearing the black and white Bruce Oldfield gown she wore to the Dutch inauguration dinner last year.

Yep mighty Bouch ... as usual.
As for the dress, it's not bad at all but as discussed last year, the sewing across the chest is a miss.

I think the problem is, if she'd worn the jacket open, it would have looked far better. Sadly, w/it closed, it does look like all she needs to do is take a deep breath and *pop!!*. A shame.

Scooter,
The dress is not above the knee but at the knee. The coat is one and half inches longer so if the dress was any longer than the coat would be mid calf.

Camilla's dress is the same length as Mrs. Higgins.

It is a solemn occasion so bright colors would not have been appropriate.
Camilla almost always wears blue for these type of occasions and since the Queen had pale blue and Charles had medium blue, Camilla went with dark blue so she wouldn't match or clash with the other members of the RF.

Camilla's hair and makeup are very pretty at the formal event.

Her dress most certainly is above the knee. The entire knee cap is showing.

^ Yes. The knee cap is showing. Look how much longer the other two ladies are wearing their skirts.
