Diana would be amused. Her successor and former rival, Camilla Parker Bowles, failed spectacularly in her attempt to wow Manhattan society with her sartorial splendor last night.
Dressed in an unflattering Anthony Price navy velvet frock with a fussy oversized chiffon collar, the Duchess of Cornwall arrived at a chi-chi cocktail party looking more like an escapee from the choirboy pew of Westminister Abbey than the guest of honor.
Earlier, Camilla caused quite a stir when she chose an eye-popping raspberry suit for her visit to Ground Zero.
We predict an "off-with-their-heads" ruling to come down on the core team who were supposed to create the "Camilla Chic" glamour on this trip..... and "a secret dresser," whose identity is fast becoming a gag in fashion circles.

Why don't they just leave her alone. She is not and never will be another Diana.
Actually, Camilla looked very nice, visiting Ground Zero in the raspberry suit.
However, the navy velvet evening dress make her look about 25 pounds overweight.
The berry color is flattering to older women. It seems to be fashionable this year, which is nice, imo.
Why don't they leave the poor girl alone???
1) She dresses like a frump.
2) Her husband is a tool.
3) They are both adulterers.
4) I have yet to be convinced that either of them have the brains to come in out of the rain.
Eff 'em... we don't have royalty here. If they want to be fawned all over, they should have stayed home.
Do we have a photo of the evening dress?
Perhaps because she is with a British moron who is here to sell Islam?
Not another Diana?! Well, that's something in her favor.
Well, at least Camilla's 25 pounds are spread over her frame. She's very athletic looking, fit and quite pretty for a sixtyish woman.
Unlike Hillary whose extra 25 (chortle, snort) are spread equally over each calf and distributed in great lumps over her hips.
Thank goodness Camilla doesn't wear black pantsuits...
She looks like she really doesn't want to be there.
LOL Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel!
FWIW, I agree with you. They are both adulterous pigs. Go home.
She is no Diana , but then who would want to be? Bulemia is no fun.
I agree. Why don't people leave her alone. Just like making fun of Chelsea Clinton. The girl was born that way. It's not her fault. I'm sure all the people making these comments are virtuous fashion models.
I think Diana would have been quite "normal" if her disgusting husband hadn't been such an uncaring dog.
I find it interesting that the writer automatically assumes that the goal was to "wow Manhattan society." I really don't get the impression Camilla Parker Bowles cares all that much about fashion. She looks fine to me, no question she isn't what you'd call a fashion plate-- but I don't see the evidence that she is attempting to be one, either.
Come to think of it I don't ever remember seeing one where she looked genuinely happy.
