Picking out the perfect outfit for a royal wedding is the ultimate fashion challenge, but The Duchess Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles had a fail-safe strategy: go with what you know.
Camilla, stepmom to Prince William (now the Duke of Cambridge), wore a silk dress and coat by Anna Valentine Friday morning — the same designer she chose for her own wedding to Prince Charles in 2005.
"The biggest fashion upset was Camilla Parker-Bowles looking fabulous!" Entertainment Tonight fashion expert Steven Cojocaru tells Us Weekly of her champagne silk dress and hand-embroidered blue coat. "She was spot on in terms of looking perfectly day formal. She looked snazzy and dressed-up and dare I say glamorous."
Camilla accessorized with neutral Jimmy Choos and a topper by Philip Treacy, who also created stunning fascinators for Princess Beatrice and Eugenie in addition to several other wedding guests.
