The Duchess Of Cornwall Visits The Hampton Court Palace Flower Show - Pictures - Zimbio

A very relaxed Camilla at the Hampton Court flower show. To me, her dress seems very much in the style of QEQM.

I would just like to respond to a few of the comments from the last thread: this is a FASHION forum. If you object to people talking about the merits of Camilla's clothes, then don't visit this forum.

I agree that Camilla supports her husband admirably and does lots of great things, but this is a thread about FASHION.

That said, this last outfit is breezy and very summer-appropriate.

The pearl necklace is lovely. I am not sure about the rest of the ensemble. Additionally her make-up(tan?) looks unflattering.

Look, she has been working harder these day and she seems to be a nice woman. But her fashion sense is not there and she and many have repeatedly said this needs better undergarments. The dress looks like a Wal-Mart fashion.

The dress looks very comfortable and summery. Good choice for a flower show.

I don't believe you'll find anyone being vitriolic recently. As many have said, she is good at her job and clearly having a good time, but some of us find her clothes lately underwhelming.

Looks like she got some new clothes or maybe these are some of the not worn so often clothes.

I like the sleeves on the Evening Gala dress.

This one looks okay but her ever present seams and pockets.

So this is where she buys her material for her dresses.

Today's dress is a hit.

This neckline, this flare from an undefined waist, the deeper colors and medium small print all work very well for the Duchess. She wore this dress in New Zealand and it looked nice there as well. It is a flattering silhouette. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/...37_306x543.jpg

I'm sorry, but the higher waist highlights her lack of proper undergarments, yet again. I like the dress though, and concur that it's a flattering silhouette.

I have given up on the undergarment issue. It seems to irritate those of us in the US the most. So, I've decided I am being chauvinist and given it up on the issue I am happy now when she avoids looking like a bar of soap. I think it flatters her more - but just my opinion.

Thought this would look good on Camilla. It's her favorite colors and style and it comes without seams. Maybe the Queen can let her borrow it. The Queen can keep the hat, brooch, earrings, purse, gloves and shoes.

An old favourite (dating back to 2007?) of Camilla's returns today....

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, looked lovely indeed. She wears full A-line skirts well.

I saw that exact same outfit in Sears.
Just kidding and nodding approvingly to your comment.
I do like Camilla, she seems intelligent, can mock herself and has a lot of humor. I just wish she got a better fashion counselor and a hair color makeover.

I think she was going for the omelette look.
