  1. Rouge-corail qui va à merveille à Camilla ; dans un tailleur-jupe de la même couleur, elle serait magnifique... Très joli rafraîchissement dans sa coiffure !

  2. With apologies to fashionistas everywhere, I like the girl in the white blouse and prairie skirt :-)

    1. Actually, is not GIRL ( as much as she resembles Laura Ingalls) the correct term is woman

    2. Lol — calm down, MM. Just for you (and in honor of International Women’s Day) I herewith revise my comment: I like the GAL in the white blouse and prairie skirt.

    3. I really like the prairie skirt and white blouse too. It must be a trend for spring- I’m seeing these skirts everywhere!

      Camilla looks great in red. Her makeup is always fantastic.

  3. Don't often see Camilla in red. She suits it and the many dresses she has in this style flatter her figure. However, I think it would have looked a lot better with shoes rather than the ubiquitous boots. Love her doing elbow bumps.

  4. Good cause. Like the elbow bump. Because of the Corona virus, that's becoming the new handshake.

  5. She looks good. This is a nice silhouette on her. Great choice for minimal jewelry, and nice pin for the cause.

  8. Camilla is dressed well, fit as always (She has a good stylist.) But the other ladies! I praise the ladies in the last picture, they are elegant. But the other ladies - very badly! Especially those sitting in line with Camilla- to her right. How can a lady show her bare thighs? Has she no taste? Or a lady in a black top and black skirt with white ripples (photo no. 2,4, 7): terrible, dirty,unsightly boots. Some women are dressed as if they were going to the supermarket for Saturday shopping, not for the festival opening ceremony.

    1. @anon 11:17This was an event dedicated to the difficulties that some, specially underprivileged, women have in the world, and yet you find it necessary to demean them with your remarks. Yes, they may not be fashionistas, and this blog is certainly not to portray them, but if you wanted to criticize their bad fashion sense ( in your view) there are kinder ways to do it.

    2. Well said, Cherry, well said.

    3. For Cherry
      I'm sorry, but how do I kindly say that bare thighs are unsuitable for a lady? In addition, my English has reserves (not my native language). Women around the age of 40 should already know how to dress appropriately for different occasions. No need for a fashion adviser to do that.
      I regret that sincerity today is considered something rude. A mature personality can accept a critical opinion.

    4. The lady looks well groomed and dressed for today's fashion. Being an 'arbiter of good taste' does not entitle anyone to ruin a good experience for someone else. Hemlines have been at this level since the '60's. The old saying that "if you have nothing good to say"....can be applied here. Ana

  9. Wearing boots so often is getting boring, and with this dess, it does not fit. Dark stockings with dark shoes would have looked much better.... JT - PS: The bumping elbows is not a good place to say "hi", if/when people sneeze/cough into this area, it would stand to reason that area would be more contaminated than another area. imho

  10. Camilla looking great - the red coat and the boots are fabulous. And a wonderful cause as well - I applaud her for championing this.

  11. Beautiful, luscious red colour on the Duchess, suits her beautifully. Not so keen on the boots, but that's personal preference only. She looked lovely. Sad to see such criticism of some of the ladies appearances attending this event in a previous comment, anon 11.17 Considering the topic of this event, very demeaning and completely unnecessary. I applaud their courage, conviction, and just fantastic that they were able to participate.

    1. Dear Ana,
        I do not criticize the efforts of theset ladies and their commitment for the good cause. That's admirable. I criticize fashion (it's a fashion blog after all). I do not like the current political and social hyper-correctness - when a person cannot say their critical opinion. As soon as I say that I do not like something or something is inappropriate in my opinion, I am already accused of rudeness. If I sometimes criticize the fashion of a dark-skinned woman, I would certainly be accused of racism or various other "isms".
      I respect your opinion, please respect mine.

  12. She looks nice. Red is a good color on her, especially with everyone's favorite boots :D

  13. Let’s not forget she is over 70. Her boots must be comfortable and it’s not like they’re terrible. I’ll take the boots over other more glaring wardrobe malfunctions we see on certain royals. And no, I am not looking for a debate. Tanya
