Who said anything about age? The duchess of Wellington is sixty and looks good. Queen Sylvia is 71 and still keeps the glam. Even Q Margrethe who is looking ill these days looked fab during the Swedish wedding.

She usually uses dresses without structure than end up looking like nightgowns or with lines that do not look good on her.

I think that white gown with the blue sash is one of her worst. There is a sort of cummerbund below her chest and she looks really odd because of her poor support garments and she sags at the bustline. It makes her look even more awkward IMO. She is in her element with the bling IMO but the gown is a bad fit. The second white gown is fitted better--she is not petite by any means and the second gown in white fits better and does not make it obvious that the foundation garments are not that good.

I've been thinking that she may choose non fitting dresses because of her arthritis? Because she looks so good on the white dresses I posted but she prefers the flowy dresses much more.

I'm wondering about the sort of advice she gets from her dressers and fashion consultants. The first thing that should have been attended to IMO is the foundation garments. Someone is remiss since the dresses and gowns seem "off" because of the foundation garments.

^^It's odd that her dresser (surely she must have one) hasn't suggested a good brand. I think Camilla has three problems. She doesn't choose outfits that flatter her shape, in her evening wear especially, she has non-functional foundation garments and she has poor posture. How many times to we see her round shouldered or slightly bowed? And that problem in not going to get better as she ages.

I think she has spoken about  osteoporosis in her family so the hunching can be attributed to that situation.

Exactly Mememe.   thumbsup That's what gets me - my Grandmother had that condition and no matter what price or fashioned undergarments she wore it made no difference! Not even bespoke!!  I can see the exact same posture in Camilla and whilst I don't like all her dress choices, I'm never going to pick her on posture.  Osteo and posture are related.

People with spinal disorders don't fake being sick.  They fake being well.  That's talent.  sauer

Yes, Camilla obviously has issues going on.  She often misses events due to back pain.   That's why I question whether she is up to the task of being consort.

From a health and fashion standpoint, breast reduction might be beneficial.

Breast reduction made a world of difference in the way I feel! I had almost 8 pounds taken off 4 years ago and no more shoulder or back pain!  thumbsup

IMO - knowledge actually - she could have all her breasts lopped off and it won't change the underlying illness.  It won't make her look better or feel better.  As for her being consort, well there's no one else up to the job anyway, unless we think of Sophie who I happen to like.  But her husband isn't the heir in line.

There's boatloads of people who are up to the job of consort, but who (like) Sophie don't have a snowball's chance of ever being it.  Princess Anne would be great.   So would Princess Michael.   So would the Duchess of Gloucester.    But it has to be Charles' wife and then William's wife, and they both married women who aren't up to the job.

If Camilla really does have osteoporosis -- and I don't know that that has been confirmed; has it? -- then she really is not up to the job.  If her back pain is --as the press releases state -- from her hunting days, then reduction of her large breasts might offer some relief.     Reduction of her breasts would make her clothes look better  (since this is the "fashion files" thread).   But, of course, I would never suggest anyone undergo surgery just for that.

It has been determined that osteoporosis is in her family--her mother had it. But never confirmed or denied that Camilla has osteoporosis.

A couple of articles about her fashion:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/camillas-best-fashion-moments-how-5484828

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2317380/Camilla-Duchess-Cornwalls-stunning-new-look-The-secret-Yoga-pilates-bee-venom-facials.html

The idea of this dress was good, but isn't it very badly sewn on the breasts?

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/04/30/article-2317380-198F115C000005DC-72_634x1464.jpg

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2900390/The-reinvention-Camilla-dash-charm-LOT-charity-work-turned-Duchess-Cornwall-one-Britain-s-favourite-royals.html

Also I don't understand the obsession with white (QEII also has this problem). I think it's a difficult colour to wear especially all white outfits.

No, it's never been confirmed nor denied.  But it's very hereditary.

Her posture, particularly the thoracic spine remind me of what I've seen in my own family. It's a lack of denial that points to it IMO - no palace release saying she doesn't suffer the condition.

Personally I think for her age and her role, her outfit are good.

And about the White, for different reasons isn't a colour to suit her,

^ Obviously, only the Queen does, Alexandrine.   She is the only one to be perfectly turned out at all times.  Her two daughters-in-law (Camilla and Sophie), look like hot messes so much of the time.  Why do they not avail themselves of professional help?    blink

Well, the Queen found her 'look' and has never wavered from it so it's a built-in institution all its own. ^Agreed.  PC is solid and impeccable.  Unfortunately, the rest haven't been able to buy a clue.  I do think, though, that Camilla has found hers and sticks with it, like it or *despise* it. 

Kate?  Still sitting on her bed with a room full of strewn clothes and a closet of mix-matched crapola.
