Queen Elizabeth II turns 92 on April 21, 2018. In her term spanning over 6 decades, she has outlasted several wild fashion trends. In 90 years of being in the public eye, she has become popular for wearing bright coloured outfits, pearl necklaces, pristine white gloves, Launer handbags and occasionally colour coordinated umbrellas. She doesn’t experiment with her styles much but perfectly knows how to remain in the style game. She adopts only those fashion trends that are timeless and practical. Her style has certainly evolved from wearing dress coats as a child to her signature dress and peacoat and a hat, she has always remained loyal to her regal heritage. Even at the age of 92, she has her own polished signature style and recently she even made her debut visit at the London Fashion Week. She has also been an inspiration for an entire Dolce & Gabbana collection. Not to forget stunning wedding dresses she has donned in the royal weddings.

  • Talking about the royal weddings, let’s start with the Queen’s wedding. The wedding dress of the then-Princess Elizabeth to Prince Philip on November 20, 1947, was created by royal dressmaker Norman Hartnell. It took over 350 women and seven weeks to complete the dress. According to Royal Collection Trust, Hartnell secretly added an extra lucky clover on the left side of the skirt so that Elizabeth could rest upon it during the ceremony. She paired the royal dress with a pair of open-toe satin sandals that were made by Rayne and designed by Hartnell. The buckles of the sandals were studded with small pearls.
