This seems a poor fit to me and I dislike the shade of green. Altogether a poor day for these normally stylish royal ladies.

This dress reminds me of my cheerleading days. (Rah rah ree! Kick ‘em in the knee! Rah rah rass! Kick ‘em in the other knee!)
But she does look kinda cute.

A little over fussy for my taste but I like the colour with black accessories and trim. I wish she would embrace the trend for a slightly longer length, particularly with coats.

I don’t think this is at all attractive on her. Camilla needs a fashion makeover. Her clothes are frequently dull, dated, and tired. A future queen (if she is to be that) really needs a crisper and more stylish look. I think we are all rooting for her, but she needs some professional help.

Camilla looks great in that coat but I'd remove the black pads if I were designing it myself.

The duchess looked lovely in her red dress last night at Clarence House.

Great style of dress, and the colour works well for Camilla.

I cannot claim to be a fan of this ensemble. To me, it does not appear that the coat fits well at all, and I really do not like that top she has on at all.

Vogue?

I may be misremembering what happened, but there was a story that Vogue assisted Diana in changing her wardrobe and grooming from shy teenaged governess to Princess of Wales stylish.

Camilla’s wardrobe never looks quite as polished and professional as it should. I understand that she’s semi-elderly, and doesn’t have a model-like figure, but she has a number of outfits that look more like the school dinner lady’s clothes than that of a future Queen Consort.

Vogue, where are you when you’re needed?

First maybe Camilla doesn't care that much about others' opinions and above all feels comfortable the way she dresses. Appropriate comes to mind.
Second Diana was like 20 something when she had this makeover. You just can't compare with a 70 years old woman.
I bet Camilla would be the first to laugh at the frivolous idea of a "Vogue" makeover. It's just not her.

Perhaps not Vogue, but perhaps it is time for her to relook at the relationship with Anna Valentine and Bruce Oldfield. Or perhaps, those two just need to have a rethink of what they make for Camilla.

Also, I'm not sure she has the dresser required for the role. Sometimes her clothes don't look crisply pressed.

Well, what is appropriate for an ordinary woman of a certain age is not necessarily appropriate for a Queen. And I am reasonably sure that Charles would wish her to always look her best, not merely comfortable.
She deeply needs a freshening up, from her hair and makeup to her wardrobe.

IMO

I do agree that she needs to rethink her style- particularly for daytime, formal engagements. Of late, she seems to favour a lot of fussy pleats and ornamentation that doesn’t suit her figure. I would also love to see a slightly shorter, ‘bouncy’ hairstyle, her hair has looked a little limp and lacking shape recently. I used to like her style, but I agree it might be time to try some new designers.

As regards the hair, in recent years, especially for day time engagements, a lot more of it seems to cover her face, which I think makes her look older.

My opinion is that the evening time and gala outfits look good, but very "uniformish". Always white dress, Greville honeycomb tiara etc. No variation. But the Queen herself has also become like that the last 20 years...

Daytime, I like Camilla in pastel colours and suits, with pearls. Love her pearl chokers...

I think the red and the green outfits suit her extremely well. Classic without being boring.
