Anya Hindmarch meets the Queen!

 Anya Hindmarch

Trust the Queen recognises a good handbag! Anya Hindmarch was awarded an MBE for her services to the British fashion industry at Buckingham Palace yesterday. ‘It was such a fantastic honour to meet the Queen and a very special occasion to share with my family,' the designer said afterwards. ‘The entire experience made me feel so proud to be British! Most definitely a memory to cherish forever.' In true chic style, Anya wore a Marni cream dress and beige coat, accessorised with a python clutch from her own 2010 cruise collection (what else?). And Anya wasn't the only fashionable recipient at yesterday's award ceremony. Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington picked up her medal wearing her famous fashion must-have – a pair of Jimmy Choo heels. Well if you are meeting royalty...
