DUMPY FRUMP A FASHION DISASTER (why don't they leave the poor girl alone, already)
NY POST ^ | 11/2/05 | ORLA HEALY

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.

SOMBER VISIT: Camilla yesterday at Ground Zero, the first stop on the royal tour of the United States. Photo: AP

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.

"Why don't they just leave her alone. She is not and never will be another Diana."


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...

FWIW, I agree with you. They are both adulterous pigs. Go home.

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.

Dress is okay but that smile makes her look like someone just stepped on her toe.

Come to think of it I don't ever remember seeing one where she looked genuinely happy.

Diana is "frozen in time". No way Camilla, or anyone, can compete with that image. She shouldn't even try..

This is a most unfortunate choice of evening dress IMO. It looks flattering at the neckline, but the shape and fit are terrible.

Charles didn't do himself a favor when he allowed leaks about his intention to take Bush to the woodshed over our unkind behavior toward Muslims. (Evidently he'd prefer that we let them loot, pillage, and murder to their hearts' content). But then Charles is a chinless fool and Bush needs to make more speeches along the lines of his most recent...in which he called a spade a spade where Muslims/Islam/Islamofascists are concerned. I'd like to see him stand up and give a toast along those lines at whatever lunch/dinner he's giving in Charles' honor.

She doesn't have the shoulders for that navy dress.

I'm going to tick off some of the royal watchers, but I've always thought that Diana was nothing more than a party girl. Charles must see something in Camilla, he's been with her for ages. It's certainly not her looks.

Velvet is difficult to wear if you aren't rail thin. The length is what throws it off. Hitting the knee looks frumpy. It should have been longer. Better yet, she should have been wearing a dupioni or brocade.

Yes, I agree. Velvet is difficult to wear. I would like the dress much more if it were long and not velvet. The color is beautiful as is the neckline. I think she looks very good overall, but not in this dress.

I don't like the whole royal thing in general. We don't have or need royalty here, thank God, and I personally see no reason for it.

that being said, it is no business of anyone's, what someones taste in woman....or clothing is. I'm happy that they are happy. I would be happier if I were the one who had the royal fortune, but such is life.

Good luck to these 2.

The length of that dress is the worst thing about it......floor-length would have made the look balanced, more regal, and more attractive on Camilla.

As long as we are doing a critique - the dress itself is not that bad - her makedup is good - nice jewels - but what's with her shoulders puffing out in front like that and why do I care? :o)

Did Yoko steal this outfit from the late Margaret Hamilton?

All that is missing is a broom and sky writing of "Surrender Dorothy".

Trying to turn Camilla into Diana is lipstick on a pig. And she's hardly a "girl", however blond she goes. They are both gross, and quite unappealing.
