Duchess Camilla made a move away from her normal style at last night's opening ceremony for the Commonwealth Games.
The royal wore a jaw-dropping navy Anna Valentine jumpsuit, complete with flowing wide-leg trousers.
Camilla, who recently revealed her summer fashion must-have, normally sticks with fitted dresses in neutral colors, so her choice of outfit is a serious move away from her usual wardrobe choices.
The 70s-style jumpsuit also had elbow-length sleeves with white piping, while the zip went to the waist. The flared jumpsuit covered her shoes, but she paired the look with a black leather bag.
Camilla and Charles stepped in for the Queen on the opening night of the Commonwealth Games. The Queen, who is a patron of the federation behind the competition, couldn't attend because of her ongoing mobility issues.
In October last year, the Queen wrote a secret message to the Commonwealth, which was then placed in a baton and given to paralympic gold medalist Kadeena Cox for the first leg of its journey, it then traveled to 72 Commonwealth countries over 294 days before returning to Birmingham on Thursday night.
Charles read out his mother's message last night, which said, "Tonight, in the words of the founder of the Games, we embark once again on a novel adventure here in Birmingham, a pioneering city which has drawn in and embraced so many throughout its history. It is a city symbolic of the rich diversity and unity of the Commonwealth, and one which now welcomes you all in friendship.
"I wish each athlete and team every success. Your hard work and dedication, particularly in recent times, have been an inspiration to all of us. It now gives me the greatest pleasure to declare the 22nd Commonwealth Games open."
The Commonwealth Games, just like the Olympic Games, are an international multi-sport event that sees athletes representing countries from the Commonwealth of Nations compete. In 2018 the games were held in Melbourne, but this year they will take place in Birmingham - in the cities multiple existing sports venues, arenas, and conference halls.
