In 2013 we see The Queen celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of her Coronation so I thought it would be fitting to do a blog post to honour yet another royal momentous occasion.
After all, I am not the only one to pay homage to Her Majesty The Queen who in her own right is an improbable style icon.
Yup, you heard right! A style icon!
Not only have we see some of the contemporary British Designers and Fashion Houses such as Dame Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen (I miss him), Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Kane and Stella McCartney to name a few pledge their allegiance to Britannia in some way or another with their edgy collections, we too are blessed with some of the most extraordinary fashion cities in the world here in the United Kingdom and whilst Queen Elizabeth II may not particularly be interested in fashion to the extent that us Fashion Bloggers are, we are certainly assured that fashion is interested in The Queen.
Dolce & Gabbana in 2008 used Her Majesty The Queen as inspiration for their diffusion collection at Milan Fashion Week and with Agyness Deyn naming the Queen as her fashion inspiration is a further testament to Royalty understanding the real power of fashion.
Also, if like me you are an avid British Vogue reader and devotee, you will remember Her Majesty being in the Best Dressed of 2007 a few years ago alongside supermodels Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell as one of the 50 most glamorous women in the world.
Oh and get this, Her Majesty has a paged dedicated to her fashion on the official website of The Royals. You can check it out here:
Absolutely top hole!
I end this post in thanking you Ma’am for the fashion it is you have inspired in us throughout your reign and whilst this lovely jumper shows a little more flesh than you may be used to seeing, it is with my best intention that I fly the flag in this manner.
