Sorry Mr S, I am in love!

No, not with Charles, although he will always hold my deep affection, but with ASIMO!

Is the back of the Duchess's dress in homage to Japanese style? It's a similar shape to the belt that's on the back of a kimono.

Okay, that answers my question. I thought that it looked like an obi. I really love the colour of the dress, and I think that the choker goes very well with that neckline.

Overall very flattering color and effect.

I like the color of the dress as well--it is very vibrant and has a great depth of color. As for the choker, it's a family piece and I really like how Camilla continues to wear those sentimental family pieces to important functions. I think it speaks a great deal about her that she would choose family pieces over more elaborate, royal pieces. In many ways, that necklace is her signature piece. One of the early photos of her that we've seen from the 70's shows her wearing this necklace (she looks amazing in that photo--bare shoulders, same hairdo but it works for her, and this necklace--she looks fantastic) and now she continues to wear the piece to important functions. Much like the Queen prefers sentimental family pieces, Camilla does the same.

Oh, still no pictures yet. Hopefully in an hour or two perhaps. I prefer when 'they' provide her hair with volume, instead of allowing it to lie relatively flat. Suits her most favourably.

I liked the colour of her evening dress, thought it went well with the choker, but the design was embarassing. She needs a better dressmaker, someone who cares about how D of C looks, not the designer label.

Prince Charles scraps the formalities to meet Asimo the robot in Japan
October 29

It was only when Asimo danced — the staff called it his Samurai dance, although with Asimo’s Seventies moves, Travolta dance might have been more accurate — that the Prince finally laughed. Asimo stood on one leg, delighted to have got a response.

If a certain few (no surprises there)
I hope to let you down gently, the presumption that it is only your posts that come across in such a way is entirely misguided! Your comment of 'a certain few (no surprises there)' is beyond belief whilst you are apparently presuming to judge those that objected to the comments made on here, by some posters.

If we can leave the personal sniping behind for the rest of the thread that would be good.

¤

I don't think anyone has mentioned it here or elsewhere but the quality of the pictures on this Zimbio magazine website leave the photo agencies in the dust.
The only question is for how long the pictures remain accessable.

I was wondering about that just one minute ago.
I have checked on Zimbio website and, If I am not wrong, some galleries remain accessable only for one year, some other galleries for 4 or 5 years.

For me it's the the centrepiece, MARG. That gold filigree looking monstrosity just exudes a cheap costume jewellery like appearance. I'm not sure what the stone in the centre is, but it looks so garish against the gold. Truly, just not something I recognise as being tasteful, but that's just my opinion...

OK you got me! I went back and had another look at a blow-up and the filligree is a more than a little OTT.

You are not alone, I love it, it exudes a bygone elegance, missing in some of the pieces women seem to favour today.

It seems that no photos of a private dinner with Crown Princely couple have been released. So sad...
