Indeed, deep and rich was the way to go "Lady M"

I am a HUGE fan of these necklines so anything like this is sure to get my thumbs up!

Maybe a few cultured pearl strands & button earings (would have looked absolutely fab against the rich material), but the centrepiece of the collier is (I think) rather ugly.

Then again, we cant see her ears.lol.

For a fall evening, the dress looks very appropriate and different. Great colour, too. Prince Charles is only wearing a suit, not a dinner jacket. Her cocktail dress length matches his outfit. I never quite understand the dress codes if the man wears a suit, but the lady wears full length evening gown.

Just so as to not confuse people, I meant that if this were a gown it would be perfect (in my opinion) for say something like a State Banquet or even a Coronation or Enthronement ceremony etc.

The pink suit was very nice however- the Union Jack handbag was a bit tasteles... I however don't think it's ever okay to wear or display your national flag on anything other than a mast, so I may be alone in my rebuke...

It was at a museum of modern art. So a handbag like that seems fitting to me. It is different and modern.

every reporter keeps saying that their visit to the WTC site was emotional. I looked at photos and they seemed more shocked or something than they looked overcome with emotion.....I think it was interesting how Camilla placed the flowers instead of Charles....

I know there are laws in some countries forbidding the use of the flag in applications that might appear frivolous, like clothes, accessories, or dishtowels, but that isn't the case in the UK. The flag gets stuck on just about everything at one time or another.

Considering the fact that C&C are in the US to promote British trade & industry I think its a lovely way to start getting the message across. :)

Without the wrap the dress looks much better.

don't think camilla wears cultured pearls, she only wears the really real and rare ones (but warren would know perhaps)

Have just read through the last ten pages. These calmer waters are such a pleasure; it was rough enough to belly-up the SS Poseidon back there.

I thought this too; from a distance the white neckline gives the appearance of an Elizabethan ruff. As to the dress, I think we have learnt from experience that velvet doesn't photograph very well. It probably looked quite chic to those who were there. Camilla looked stunning in pink.

Sorry, I prefer diamonds. Pearls have never really done it for me. No glitter. :)

Camilla's sequined clutch was a nice play on themes. The pattern was Union Jack like but the sequins was not. The bag was symbolic just as everything one sees on various countries national days. It was a very telling touch.

I just now noticed her handbag and loved it! What a hip and modern touch and something you would never expect a royal to have....very cool.

From Yahoo News:

The duchess also carried a cheeky, sequined Union Jack handbag by designer Lulu Guinness.

I love the neckline of the dress but the bodice is not very flattering at all. Its too loose around the chest. I think the right undergarments can fix a lot of figure flaws, one doesnt need to hide them under baggy cuts. And I dont like the hairstyle from the reception either. It looks like Camilla's about ready to take off with those two wings around her head.
I tried not to say anything at first but I've got to be honest. The duchess can look better.
