It was June 1953 when 27-year-old Princess Elizabeth ascended to the throne and became the Queen of England and ruler of much of the free world. With over 23,000 days on the throne under her belt, Queen Elizabeth II has now commemorated her Silver, Golden, Diamond and Sapphire Jubilees, becoming Britain’s longest reigning monarch. During her 65 years in power, she has used her wardrobe to convey an image of a stately world leader and was aided – to this end – by two couturiers in particular: Norman Hartnell and Hardy Amies. Hartnell was the designer commissioned to create her coronation and wedding gowns and many of the shimmering satin confections that she wore to glamorous state occasions, while Amies primarily took care of Her Majesty’s daytime wardrobe. Over the years, the Queen has become famous for wearing bright, block colours, pearl necklaces, pristine white gloves, headscarves and plaid skirts. Now her style is iconic, with her Launer handbags instantly recognisable and synonymous with her and Dolce & Gabbana basing an entire collection around her signature looks. Look back at the amazing fashion history of Queen Elizabeth II below.
