The wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth II, as befits any monarch, is one of exquisite and sumptuous occasion frocks, dignified hats and coats for state visits and national walkabouts and practical clothes for off-duty pursuits. At every appearance, her public watch her closely and her outfits always come in for scrutiny and comment.

Published to coincide with her Diamond Jubilee year, this remarkable book takes a fond look back at the days when her Majesty led the way in terms of fashion, showcasing the best of the worldaEURO ™s designers. From the coronation to the present day the Queen has attracted comment, but in the fifties and sixties particularly she was a style icon, copied and adored. In the 1950s her wardrobe was characterized by romantic, glamorous, yet practical dresses, with fashionable nipped-in waists and full skirts. A more tailored silhouette took over in the 1960s. While in the 1970s she embraced a more floaty, relaxed style to match the feel of the decade. Looking at the fabulous vintage wardrobe of our Queen tells us much about the times she has lived in as well as a glimpse into the archives of fashion.

From the feminine, intricately embroidered New Look dresses of Norman Hartnell through the more tailored simplicity of Hardy Amies to the more flowing style of Ian Thomas in the 1970s, the QueenaEURO ™s wardrobe has been inspirational in terms of vintage fashion. This sartorial biography charts a womanaEURO ™s move from wasp-waisted princess to stately national icon and is a must-buy for the vintage clothes enthusiast as much as for dedicated followers of her Majesty the Queen.
