Camilla usually looks most at home in the type of waxy, green clothing bought at agricultural shows and worn while feeding horses, but she showed her interest in fashion today on her get-ready-for-me-to-be-Queen tour of Paris, stopping in at the Dior atelier for a tête a tête with creative director Raf Simons.

Camilla was given a personal tour of Dior-world by Christian Dior CEO Sidney Toledano before being shown the haute couture atelier where Simons's visions are painstakingly stitched together by teams of artisan laborers.
