I love the Queens day outfit. That bright lime green against the black is so different for her. Not crazy about the gown though.

I like the day outfit -- looks very tasteful, though I wonder about the wisdom of wearing black in such a sunny location! :smile:

I like the gown...but then again, I have a thing about grapes...

She looks fantastic in the black and lime suit, as always, her hat is impeccable. Unfortunantly, the same cannot be said for her gown at the dinner. First, I just do not like that ruby swag necklace; it looked dated to me. Second, the tiara is not quite right, and the ruby order disappears in the pattern of the dress .Not her best look at all.

I liked the day outfit too. The gown was okay, but I really didn't like the face in the wall behind her! It was like Han Solo frozen in carbonite.

The Queen's day outfit was gorgeous.. She look a lil bit younger.. hohoho... Btw, I hate the gown, and also the necklace. The necklace design is really awful for me. In the other hand, the First Lady gown is beautiful. I love the color.

The day suit looked great, but I am afarid I am no fan of the evening gown HM wore last night. I also think the way the gown was designd, it disguised the brooches HM wore last night

RoyalProtocol 05-14-2008 12:31 PM

Her Majesty looked great during the day but the evening dress was woeful, and has no one explained to His Excellency how to wear the star of the Bath and where did he get that awful bowtie- does black tie not mean black??

Yes, her day wear is stunning and her evening clothes just awful. Whomever designs her gown, makes everthing look the same. White sacks, this one with too much junk. The necklace goes with nothing she has on. She should have skipped it.

Holy Schnikies! 82 and STILL traveling! Hats off to you Madam! :flowers:
