Maybe if she was in the UK. But it suits where she is. Looks very lovely on her.

Good to see the "Asian" wardrobe get another outing

I love this colour, it's one of my favourites and I love even more that she broke out her turquoise earrings to match. Once again, the embroidery is amazing but it is a "day" ensemble.

I have to admit that Camilla had smarts when she first debuted her Oriental/Asian/tropical wardrobe. The humidity in Singapore is staggering and so it goes with the temperatures as well. Coming to this situation later in life she found it very difficult to handle and decided to do something about it.

As the wife of the heir to the throne, she needs to maintain a standard of dress and in these countries, a standard of modesty. Her wardrobe more than takes care of that and it is also an excellent icebreaker as she manages to fit in easily.

It is also seen as a positive nod to the traditions of the countries they visit and is very practical in the heat and humidity. Tourists can stop for a break any time they want, pop into an air-conditioned hotel or restaurant for a break. Official visitors are obliged to stop when their host stops and many do not use air conditioning.

These soft flowly 'Asian inspired' looks really do suit her

Love the blue look. The shade is gorgeous, and perfect earrings for it.

Today's look a bit more muted but still nice on her.

They do! It's a pity that they are rather traveller's outfits and not often suited for London-based events..

Here's the Duchess' wonderful evening look for today:

I suspect it is designed to be loose fitting in deference to local sensibilities.

Thanks Muriel. I wasn’t thinking of location, just the dress

Camilla's dress and trousers do seem a little on the baggy side, but she gets a pass for that simply because the colour of her dress is oh so beautiful. I love soft shades of blue like that.

I love that powder pink dress on Camilla. It totally flatters her and is simple and just seems to flow as she moves. Must be really comfortable to wear too especially in a warmer climate than she's used to.

One thing about the British Royal ladies, they look very good in trousers, but they don’t wear them often on official engagements.

Camilla looked great!

Camilla looks just stunning in that gown, that color goes so well with her and her hair is gorgeous with those fabulous earrings, this is one of the best I have seen of her in a while, just beautiful. The beading on that is so hard to do for I have tried it and is very delicate work. Hope to see this again sometime for it can and should be worn in any evening event.

This is a wonderful gown, beautifully styled and elegantly worn. And her was I wait for her to repeat a powder pink evening gown from a previous tour. I'd still love to see it because it is not anywhere near the same design. But the colour looks gorgeous on Camilla.

Now how did I miss that gown? That also is just so beautiful on her, and the shade of pink is fabulous. I love these type of gowns on her for the are very soft and romantic and leave such a lasting impression of loveliness on her. These should be worn more then the heavy gowns I feel she has worn so much in the past.......hope this one also comes out for an evening event in London.
