Fashion was not the first thing on everyone’s minds while getting ready for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, bunting and street parties were all anyone could talk about. That was of course until the celebrations began, and celebrate we did as fashion fascination took over.
Kate stuck to her fashion roots in a figure skimming nude lace dress by Sarah Burton for McQueen that somehow felt sophisticated, elegant yet sexy all at the same time. When it comes to accessorising Kate has always kept it simple, the fascinator by Jane Taylor Millinery sets off her outfit to perfection, neither over powering or unnoticed but just enough to highlight her look.
Although Kate has had a fashion following for quite some time the Queen has been making her mark for over 60 years and her Jubilee looks were always set to impress. In her mint dress coat embroidered with silver thread and matching hat designed by her dressmaker Angela Kelly she looked a picture of perfection for what must have been an overwhelming and humbling weekend.
Going for gold Camilla rose to the occasion in what seemed to be her most courageous look to date giving her a real presence during the celebration. Her choice of style and graphic design showed a different side to her normally tame and subtle choice of outfits.
The surprising yet well timed transformation of Beatrice and Eugenie was a pleasant sight to see, both seem to be growing into their own without letting their flair for colour disappear. Keeping their young ideas about fashion fun they chose simplified accessories to complement the bold bright outfits of choice.
