Camilla's, The Duchess of Cornwall, ensemble is so so. Shiny silk, I assume, is further aggravated by plastic looking embellishments. Lily white colour does not look good on older women.

:previous: As I watched last night, I was impressed by the way the ensemble moved. I was also not surprised that the DM chose to publish a photo of Charles and Camilla taken so up close as to look out of context.
Thanks Nico, these are wonderful and, since they are shown in context to the surrounding, Camilla's ensemble looks much better, not so starkly white nor over-embellished.

I think Camilla looks great in the cream ensemble.

The decorations on the coat is a floral arrangement possibly cherry blossoms, which gradually cascades down the front of the coat.

It is a classic manteau de robe and did suit the Duchess wonderfully. She made a very regal impression. Lovely.

I thought the white dress was outstanding, especially for the event. I prefer the stiffer fabric compared to last year's dress. Although I liked the design of the embroidery, the size of the beads were not to my taste - maybe silk embroidery with smaller pearls here and there would have been more to my taste.

The dress is wonderful, I can imagine that the jewels and tiara looked amazing close up. I love it when we get to see the royals in their finery.

I am not a fan of the stark white, I don't think it flatters the Duchess. Yes it is a very regal look but I personally don't like the material used for the dress and coat.

:previous: Unfortunately Court Dresses are white, end of story. If you look at the gowns in daylight they are very white, but watching the State Opening of Parliament on video you see it as it is meant to be seen, as is HM's.

Camilla wore a nice blue and white polka-dotted dress when she hosted the Final of BBC2's 500 Words Competition at St James Palace today

Good point, I hadn't considered that. TV lights and flash photography frequently give a false impression.

Queen Camilla 05-29-2015 06:16 PM

I like the silk blue dress. It is pretty, epecially without her usual day time choker.

Daria_S 05-29-2015 07:19 PM

Very pretty dress. It suits Camilla.

Regarding the gown for the opening of Parliament, not a lot of people can wear pure white but I understand the tradition. I liked the look overall. She certainly looked very regal.


I absolutely love the blue polka dot dress. It is a great color and I like the neckline. I don't mind the pearl choker but this dress definitely looked better without it.

I glad to see the Duchess's dated, 80s hairstyle is looking a bit more up to date. She carries off the formal wear with great panache I think. But her hair style definitely needs freshening up. I read somewhere that her husband favours the blonde, fluffy style, but I think it weighs her face down, if you know what I mean.

HRH the Duchess of Cornwall tonight attended, [as guest of honour] the annual fund raising dinner at the Royal Academy, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.

She appears to be wearing the Shand Tiara.

Dman 06-02-2015 05:08 PM

Camilla looks very nice; wearing her Victorian Order, Royal Family Order and Shand Tiara.

Parrothead 06-02-2015 05:10 PM

LOL...I didn't even look at her dress to see what she was wearing until later. I was too busy taking in the tiara and pearl choker, which are both divine!

Sadly Joan Collins (if that is her on the picture above) does not look too good. She looks stuffed into that dress.

Nico 06-02-2015 05:34 PM

Interestingly the Duchess seems to wear another order with her RFO, any idea ?
I'm really surprised to see Camilla in full regalia for a non state event. A tradition perhaps ?
