Historically speaking, some words never seem to belong together. Among them: low-fat Dutch chocolate, Olympic weight-lifter Michael Jackson and style-setter Camilla Parker Bowles.
That last part may be changing. The first hint came on April 9, when Parker Bowles said her I do’s to Prince Charles in a whimsical Philip Treacy hat and a stylish Robinson Valentine ensemble. In their May issue Harpers & Queen even gave the now Duchess of Cornwall a best-dressed nod, next to such names as Angelina Jolie. If she seems fresher, says her makeup artist Julia Biddlecome, it may be thanks in part to the light-reflecting makeup Camilla’s now using. Her hair colorist Jo Hansford also cites marital contentment. “That look we’re seeing lately is of pure happiness,” Hansford says. “She is absolutely glowing.”
Americans can judge for themselves in early November, when Camilla and Charles visit the U.S. for the first time as man and wife.
