Why mess with a good thing?

The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles, wore an outfit by Anna Valentine to the royal wedding Friday morning – the same designer she chose for her own wedding to Prince Charles in 2005.

Camilla, stepmom to the Duke of Cambridge, wore a champagne silk dress, topped with a hand-embroidered duck-egg blue and champagne coat.

But the designer names didn’t stop there: Camilla also chose neutral shoes by Jimmy Choo – as did several other guests – and carried a clutch by Valentine. But the most noticeable part of her ensemble, her stately topper, was created by famed milliner Philip Treacy, who designed nearly 40 hats for the occasion.
