Wardrobe details, which you can find Elizabeth II
There are not many women who could be called absolute style icons. Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, despite the very advanced age, is undoubtedly one of them. Her image is very recognizable thanks to some characteristic detail in the toilet, creating, as they say, autfit attire. Total number of such "highlights" in the royal style of about ten, and they create the most memorable style of Elizabeth II.
Probably, stylish hats were the main royal accessory, if not a symbol. Today headgear in the street the ladies put on secular protocol, and in those days, when Elizabeth's tastes were formed, this detail toilet was generally obligatory for all women, not only because of the higher light. So that any royal visit pleases fans with new stylish models. Favorite hatter Buckingham Palace for more than ten years, is a designer Rachel Trevor-Morgan. Every year she creates for Elizabeth II about ten new creations, collaborating with it, of course, the main royal stylist and assistant Angela Kelly.
Queen's hat is always about the same size and shape, and it's not so much a fad elderly client, as a matter of convenience - a hat does not cover the face and must not interfere in and out of the car. By the way, many of the details, which will be discussed today, are dictated by the basic amenities, as the daily hours of receptions - it's hard work, and look at them perfectly - a special art, moreover, that the queen had already, as we know, not a girl.
In this issue Elizabeth II allows himself to be faithful to a single brand. For about 50 years, she goes out with handbags Launer. It is believed that the "Royal Collection" for more than 200 copies, most of them - in the beloved queen of black and white. Handle length is also most often the same size - slightly elongated, it is convenient for frequent handshakes.
Shoes - this is a very important detail in the image. In addition, it should be practical and comfortable, if you are coming hours of activities that are carried out, by the way, in any weather. Therefore, the queen, having many years experience in this matter came to the same standard, and always stick to it. She wears only shoes with heels 2 inches and a quarter (about 5, 5 cm), and shoes prefers a slightly larger size, which is also very reasonable and allows, if necessary, use the additional shock-absorbing insole.
The length below the knee to the hem necessarily enclosing a special weighting belt, the wind did not lead to embarrassment - the Queen's coat unchanged and are perhaps the basis of its style. After all, for outdoor activities in the cool climate of the English they - the most convenient and versatile outerwear. Strict cut usually allows Elizabeth II demonstrate their favorite brooch, which also became the "calling card" of her style.
We can say that this part of the Queen's wardrobe "shines by its absence." It is estimated that the pants in her life Elizabeth II wore on formal occasions only about 8 times in a lifetime. When her busy schedule, this figure - the value of which tends to zero. The reason for this choice can only be called a personal dislike of Queen. Perhaps she thinks clothes trousers, suitable only for sports or active leisure, and therefore all the meetings wearing only skirts. Below are sufficiently rare pictures Elizabeth II in the pants.
Gloves and short sleeve
Gloves - is another piece toilet, the position of a decent lady protocol. Queen prefers them to a length of 15 centimeters, so that the hands were closed up sleeves. Brand Cornelia James Ltd supplies the royal court every year about a dozen gloves. As for the length of the sleeve, there is the usual choice of Elizabeth II - is three-quarters, not only for clothing. It is this cut is most convenient for eating, and look like modern outfits.
Features of the English climate is such that the umbrella for the queen - this is not a luxury but a daily necessity. Collection of Elizabeth, probably very high, because it usually manages to pick up the color of finishing just below the coat. Fulton firm for many years, is proud to be serving this high client. In recent years, the Queen prefers transparent umbrellas, and it is not just a fad, but a very handy piece - an accessory protects from rain and provides a clear view of what is necessary for meeting people.
Surprisingly, in his very advanced age Queen Elizabeth II still manages to wear incredibly bright and rich colors. For this it is sometimes trying to criticize the most stringent stylists, however, in my opinion, it is in vain. The soft pink, intense green, ultramarine and even orange colors of the queen looks incredibly harmonious. This choice of colors - it is an individual right and the opportunity to show the world that the framework is always in fashion can be transgressed, without violating one iota royal protocol.
