‘You look like Miranda off Sex And The City, but more so, from the new ‘And Just Like That’ spin off era,’ one wrote.
‘You look like Miranda from And Just Like That,’ another added.
Yet another said she looked like Old Hollywood movie star, Doris Day.
‘That hair style looks very nice,’ one noted.
It comes after Edwina and husband Neil Varcoe spoke about his battle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

In a joint interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly in June, the pair revealed that Neil was diagnosed with the illness five-years-ago.
This condition has made raising their daughter Molly, three, and son Tom, one, very difficult.
According to the magazine, Edwina broke down in tears as she recalled the ‘overwhelming’ experience of welcoming two children while also managing her husband’s illness.
Fans were very complimentary about the photo in the comments section
‘It was just as intense for those first six or eight weeks [after giving birth]. You just go, ‘Oh my gosh, this is confronting’,’ she said.
‘We’re getting better at it. I can tell now when Neil’s having a tough day,’ she added.
Neil also described the first time he was afflicted with symptoms of chronic fatigue, telling the magazine he was sick for about three weeks.
‘My energy went through the floor and there were moments when I would walk to the end of my street, and I had to turn around and come back home. I had nothing left,’ he said.
Neil said managing his condition has been a ‘really tough path’, and that he’s ‘had to make some really tough decisions’ with ‘Edwina’s support’.
As there is no cure for chronic fatigue syndrome, Neil said he has turned to Chinese medicine and medicinal marijuana for relief of his symptoms.
He was also forced to take on less responsibility at work and at home to prevent himself from burning out.
Neil recently left his job at Twitter following Elon Musk’s takeover and moved to the Capertee Valley, three hours west of Sydney.
He will work as the ‘chief farming officer’ at Warramba, the 1890s farm he and Edwina lovingly restored several years ago.
He is also set to become the project manager of a historic hotel in Carcoar, NSW, called The Victoria.
