Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall, Wears Artigiano Mail-Order Dress To Reception (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Is Duchess Camilla copying the style of another famous duchess: her daughter-in-law Kate Middleton?

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, had tongues wagging when she hosted a reception for women in the media in honor of the Women of the World festival on Tuesday at Clarence House. The reason? The Duchess was wearing a navy wool shirt dress from Artigiano, a clothing catalog, that costs 129 pounds.

Shirt dress? Very Kate. Budget clothing? VERY Kate. Plus, we just love the image of Camilla thumbing through a mail-order catalog.

The Telegraph reports that Camilla even praised her discount frock to an acquaintance at the event, "saying the company was 'really really good' and hinted she may have picked up a bargain, adding: 'They've got a sale on at the moment.'"

Unsurprisingly, the clothing retailer is already seizing the Camilla hype with a huge banner on its website, promoting the dress alongside the Duchess' reported recommendation of it.

Camilla shopping the sale racks? We love it. Now if only Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II would step out in something from Delia's.
