Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Britain's Duchess Camilla hosted a reception celebrating outstanding women last night (28.02.12).
The Clarence House event was held in support of the Women of the World (WOW) festival - which takes place at London's Southbank Centre next week - and saw a variety of leading females in the media, including comic Ruby Wax, author Kathy Lette, campaigner Bianca Jagger and BBC Radio 4 presenter Jenni Murray, in attendance.
Bianca was impressed by Camilla, explaining: 'I think she is a woman who really understands the role of women. She's always been very supportive about women's causes.'
Bianca also stressed the importance of the WOW festival.
She said: 'In the 21st century women have not been able to achieve gender equality, therefore every opportunity we have to highlight the role of women and stand up for women's rights, I take that opportunity.'
Camilla wore a Â£129 dress by Aritgiano to the reception and praised the 'really, really good' mail order company.
She added: 'They've got a sale on at the moment.'
Fashion designer Amanda Wakeley, who was also at the event, thought Camilla's dress was a hit, commenting: 'I just think she looks incredibly elegant.'
