The Duchess of Cornwall's Fashion & Style Part 6: July 2013 -

Oh no! A knee is showing! Better lock her in the Tower until she learns to lower those hems. Seriously people are upset about this? It's not like she was wearing a mini skirt or she has horrible legs. There is nothing bad or undignified about the length of the skirt.

Fortunately a variety of hemlines are both in style and appropriate, these days.

Unfortunately some people still think that there is something bad and undignified about the Duchess of Cornwall ...

There are some sad people in this world.

Having read the comments about the length of Camilla's dress, I clicked on that image with more than a little trepidation, fearing that in a moment of mischief she had donned one of her old Mary Quant mini-dresses. Luckily this proved not to be the case, and the skirt turned out to end about half way down her knee, a fair bit shorter than her 87 year old mother-in-law, but only marginally shorter than Mrs Higgins.

Dichess of Cornwall attended 300th Anniversary Gala at St John smith Sq. Repeat red dress but she's looking good!

Nice color on her. The black lace overlay is attractive. And an appropriate length!

She looks nice. There is nothing wrong with the dress. The length complaints are because her legs are not comely and she looks dumpy. Longer would have been better. The shawl is a waste.

She looks lovely. The length is flattering. One of her better looks.

I like that colour on her. It's nice for a change. I was going to say it would have been nice if she'd swapped that pearl choker for a necklace with a few rubies, but I think I spy a ruby in the centre there.

I echo everyone else's thoughts. I like the dress, it suits Camilla and she wears it well.

The shawl is not a waste. She is about to spend at least 2 hours in a stone built former church. It will get cold.

The dress has a Spanish vibe. I like it. The Duchess is a good dresser.

First time I'm seeing it, but Camilla needs more outfits like this, as it is a major Grand Slam Home Run!! Great style, great fit and suits the Duchess to a tee. She looks fantastic.

Are these new shoes?

The coat looks like it is made of burlap.

From the little I can see in the picture posted, I think this is a pair of trusty classics that have been around for many years.

The ensembles with tartan are the best pieces in Camilla's,Duchess of Cornwall, wardrobe. She looks absolutely splendid. I like richness of the blue shade and do not mind an odd looking feather on the hat and unflattering bronzed (tanned?) makeup.
