Camilla Parker Bowles’ latest ensemble is causing quite the stir on the Internet. We don’t know what’s better: Duchess Camilla’s leopard-print face mask, or her stylish outfit.
On Wednesday, October 22, the Duchess of Cornwall stepped out to visit the Pepper Pot Centre; an organization that supports senior citizens of the African-Caribbean community.
The black and white outfit is so good that it’s double-take-worthy. The duchess wore a black pinafore dress with a white long-sleeved collared blouse underneath for the community center visit. To tie the whole look together, Bowles slipped on a black chic cropped jacket.
Not to be overly dramatic, but the first time I saw it, I thought it was straight from my Pinterest feed full of fall fashion inspo. If someone hasn’t pinned it by now, then consider us shocked.
The Duchess of Cornwall leaves the Pepper Pot Centre, a charity set up to support African and Caribbean older people in west London on October 21, 2020, in London, England. For accessories, the duchess wore pearl earrings and the perfect purse to match her look. Bowles chose to go with the DeMellier London Mini Venice Bag in Black Grain. The handbag is no stranger to the royal family. Meghan Markle and Princess Beatrice have also been spotted in the label’s styles.
The British duchess could have paired the outfit with a black or white face mask to match, but instead, she chose to channel something a little spunkier. The 73-year-old donned a statement-making leopard face mask that we, too, need in our mask collection (similar here if you’re as inspired as we are).
The British duchess is clearly feeling herself, rightfully so! In the photographs, snapped on the streets of west London, she looks like a mega fashion influencer. She’s doing that “playing-it-cool-looking-away-from-the-camera” thing and hey — it’s working.
Clarence House Instagram followers are raving about the look. “Your Royal Highness, amazing, fashionable, chic… you look great!” one person commented. “We in our 70s can show them, can’t we?”
Another follower wrote, “This is officially my new favorite outfit choice by The Duchess.” Same.
