More Diamond Jubilee Inspiration
Here’s a great piece from Vogue about Queen Elizabeth II’s lifetime of wardrobe choices. If you’re still trying to figure out what to make to represent next week’s theme, here are a few key aspects that define her wardrobe:
Her hems are weighed down so they don’t blow up; her skirts must be long enough for dignity sitting on a podium or descending airplane steps; her fabrics mustn’t crease; her colors must stand out in a crowd; and her hats must show her face. And yet, the messages that accompany the outfits are much more interesting than that, and particularly so on state visits. On these occasions, there is an international relations mission to be accomplished. And here the wardrobe plays a vital part.
And what a gorgeous portrait from 1942.
