As Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 60 years on the throne this year, it’s only fitting to pay tribute to one of the century’s most elegant women and her impeccable fashion sense. Lauded by many as having an excellent sense of propriety and style, Her Majesty has never failed to look perfectly put together in every occasion, formal or informal.
So now let’s look back at The Queen’s best outfits through the years:
As a young woman, Her Majesty usually dressed in comfortable country clothes; but as she grew into being a young queen, she began to adopt more formal and mature styles.
The Queen’s earlier outfits were patterned after the “New Look,” made famous by none other than Christian Dior. As Elizabeth II ascended to the throne, her choice of clothing took on a more formal (but never boring) look. The duster coat–her signature item of clothing–may be very structured (and sometimes, boxy), but Her Majesty makes hers come to life by having them in bright colors. Even now in her eighties, she isn’t afraid of wearing her brights!
