The outfit was nice. I especially loved the color on her. The hait was nice since it seemed just about everyone else wore fascinators.

Too much going on for me pleats and dots?

The ensemble is extremely awkward. Polka dots and pleats are too much for one dress. The style of the dress made her look square. The hat further aggrvated the unfortunate look.

I thought the dress was a bit fussy, but overall, she looked lovely.

I'm not a fan of the design of the dress, though that shade of blue suits Camilla really well.

Nice legs for a lady her age. But that could have been real disaster for her.

It did look great when the wind caught the dress.
It looked liked Camilla was twirling around.

I think there was too much material in the outfit.

I saw the dress(coat) and two layers underneath.

With that much material it was unlikely all 3 layers would rise above a few inches.

It rose enough so you could see more than enough from a certain angle.

It all looked not too dramatical. The many fluffy layers prevented an insight into the royal derrière.

When I saw the blue dress that Camilla wore to the christening, I could not help but think that Camilla is increasingly dressing like the Queen Mother used to. Am I alone in the thought?

I agree, and it's not new. Camilla seems to favor the "dowager look" for her official outings. A bit ageing, but it's always appropriate.

Yes I never thought that before but now I see it and agree. Her outfit had pleats going both ways frill on the sleeves big collar then 4 or 5 rows of pearls I thought it was over the top but now I can see it would be something the Queen Mother would have worn.

Well having time to check out Camilla's coat & dress or coatdress, whatever, I have come to the conclusion that while the colour was beautiful I really would have like an Ascot repeat,

The dress just had way too much going on and made her hat look positively spartan by comparison. She looks great in proper millinery but she has a really good style that really suits her and I cannot, for the life of me, decide why she allows herself to be persuaded to try something "new". Dots that look like velcro stick-ons? What on earth is happening.

Camilla give the "new" voices the boot and stick with what you do best:

Garden Party

Trooping of the Colour

And yet another Garden Party . . . the colour is sublime.
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2015/...1453448777.jpg

All these coat and dress ensembles are similar in style and line, they are not fussy and look fabulous with great hats. My two favourites are the white and the new blue.

Camilla needs to look online at herself and see how great she looked and then look at the horrid velcro patch job at the Christening. I can only think it was a leftover from her US tour where her wardrobe was definitely not a hit because basically all of her ensembles were fussy and she's not. The Christening ensemble merely underscores what happens when she goes off script, not even that gorgeous hat could save her.

I actually think the Duchess does well in general dressing in her situation.

Her job means that length, drape and overall look of her appearance dressing is a bit limited. Her body type presents challenges. She is also not a clothes horse and not influenced by fashion of the day. She seems to like loose-fitting, comfortable fits and fabrics.

One option would be coat dressing, but doing that would mimic the queen - and the comparison would be both inevitable and probably not favorable.

I like how the Duchess has found her sartorial niche. It might not be what I would wear personally, but it includes smart choices for her age and position. She has actually figured out a way to make loose pants acceptable for some appearances.

IMHO, she dresses a half step behind the royal family when doing her job. From a PR POV, that has succeeded both with public acceptance and with letting her be "comfortable and Camilla" in her work wear.

I like the first outfit (beige and gold): very chic...
And I also think big polka dots looks better on her than the small ones, who are better for younger women.

I like all the outfits. Camilla is one of the few who can pull polka-dots off.

I like Camilla's polkadot collection and I like the new dress too.
