With her legacy of era-defining looks, Queen Elizabeth II is indisputably a style icon. As a young princess, the royal wore floral tea dresses and pleated frocks typical of the 1930s and 1940s, graduating to skirt suits and ball gowns as she stepped up to stately dressing. In 1947, she married in a dress fit for a future queen – designed by couturier Norman Hartwell, it featured delicate pearl and crystal embroidery and a dramatic 15ft-long train.
1952 年從已故父親繼任王位後，Hartwell 便成為她的御用裁縫師之一，為女王打造優雅薄紗禮服，以赴國宴與海外接待歡迎會。而她的日常穿著，則由女王欽點的設計師 Hardy Amies 打理（直到 1989 年）；女帽頭飾商 Freddie Fox 則列名負責為女王打造一系列御帽，直到 2002 年退休。
Hartwell became one of her official dressmakers when she succeeded her father to the throne in 1952, keeping the Queen in elegant tulle gowns for state banquets and receptions overseas. For her day-to-day wardrobe, the Queen enlisted designer Hardy Amies (until 1989); while milliner Freddie Fox was among those entrusted with creating her vast array of hats, until his retirement in 2002.

現在改由裁縫師Stewart Parvin與 Angela Kelly 為英女王設計繽紛裙裝，根據媳婦 Sophie，即 Wessex 伯爵夫人透露，這是為了讓群眾們能夠看見她。伴隨著英國女王的明亮套裝，近50年來，女王的標誌性 Launer 手提包和 Anello & Davide 平底鞋也鮮少缺席。
Today, the monarch turns to dressmakers Stewart Parvin and Angela Kelly for her colourful skirt suits, which, according to daughter-in-law Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, she wears to ensure crowds can see her. As well as her bright ensembles, the Queen is rarely without her trademark Launer handbag and Anello & Davide loafers, which she has worn for the last 50 years.

When off-duty at the Balmoral and Sandringham estates, she’s is often seen in tweed and her signature printed headscarves – the Burberry design she wore while travelling to Norfolk last Christmas proves she’s 100 per cent the fashion trendsetter.
To celebrate her 93rd birthday, Vogue looks back at the Queen’s style highlights from the last nine decades. ( Click here to see the photo gallery ▶)
