Our Rainbow Queen (Hardback)Sali Hughes (author)
- In stock
This snappy little volume collects together the sartorial triumphs of Her Majesty, tracing a colour- blocked path through nearly 100 years of regal style. With incisive captions from the Guardian’s beauty columnist Sali Hughes, Our Rainbow Queen is a vibrant record of a very singular fashion icon.
This riotously colourful book takes a photographic journey through Queen Elizabeth II's ten decades of colour-blocked style. The photographs, which span the colours of the rainbow and a century of style, are gloriously accessorised with captions and commentary by journalist and broadcaster Sali Hughes. From the dusky pinks the Queen wore in girlhood all the way through to #NeonAt90, by way of that hat she wore on the announcement of Brexit, and not forgetting her trusty Launer handbag ever at her side, this must-have collection celebrates the iconic fashion statements of our longest reigning and most vibrant monarch.

'It's a riot of colour and deconstructs ten decades of impactful and, at times, political dressing. Above all it proves that HRH serves some strong looks for which she deserves our respect... [we can] all learn something about the power of statement dressing.' - Sophie Elkan, Treasurer
