Truth be told, GraziaDaily has something of a soft spot for Queen Elizabeth II. This usually involves cooing over her corgis (ok, her grandsons) or admiring her ability to remain poised when greeting the likes of Lady Gaga dressed in an outlandish PVC gown (seriously, we’re not making this up – click here for a reminder of when the master of the p-p-poker face met her match). But rarely do we reserve a whole space for Her Majesty’s sartorial choices. Because although she has a millinery collection that puts Mad Hatter John Galliano in the shade (just), Liz’s uniform of dainty gloves, string of pearls and classic courts rarely induce the kind of stirring at Camp Grazia as say, Rihanna’s neon jumpsuits. Until now.
Aw, doesn't she look perky? While taking a tour of the Big Apple yesterday, our Queenie served up a sumptous selection of summery florals to create a fashion bonanza that deserves the upmost respect, especially as one is not used to such sweltering heat (102 degrees to be exact). Good work, HRH!
But what say you of the Sovereign’s style? Take a gander at her royal wardrobe and let us know if she’s done our country proud while on the other side of the pond – just do remember your etiquette please, ladies.
