The Duchess of Cornwall rubbed shoulders with the stars as she attended a charity fashion show on Wednesday evening.

Camilla, who donned a striking black velvet dress (by Fiona Clare) with white embroidered detailing, met designer Julien Macdonald, who was showcasing his collection at Lancaster House in aid of the National Osteoporosis Society.

The royal, who is the president of the society and was without her husband Prince Charles, happily posed for a photo with a group of Julien's models decked out in his daring designs.

The 71-year-old spoke with Boyzone star Ronan Keating at the event, shaking hands at the reception ahead of the show.

Camilla was also seen sharing a laugh with broadcaster Angela Rippon, whom she greeted warmly.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood also acted as compere for the evening, hosting a live auction with all proceeds raised going directly to the charity.

Camilla kept her look low-key with the simple black dress adding a touch of glitter with her sparkling drop earrings and a bejewelled clutch bag.

The royal has been a the president of the society since 2001, following the deaths of her mother and grandmother as a result of the condition.

Dame Shirley Bassey, Abbey Clancy and her husband Peter Crouch also attended the glamorous ball.

Presenter Alan Carr grinned broadly for the cameras as he enjoyed the reception ahead of the show spending time with Strictly couple Janette Manrara and Aljaz Skorjanec, and Ronan's wife Storm Keating. 

Welsh designer Julien was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Honours list in 2006 for his services to fashion.
