The Queen: 70 years of Majestic Style (Hardcover)
In Stock, Click Title for Location
The past 70 years have seen a 25-year-old princess transform into a nonagenarian monarch who is respected and loved the world over.
A woman whose views are never heard, Queen Elizabeth II has deployed fashion as a means to communicate and signal her position to the crowds who gather to see her in public and the millions who watch her television broadcasts: “I must be seen to be believed,” she has said. The Queen’s evolving attitude to dress reflects a visual landscape that began as genteel reportage in mostly black and white and has over the years evolved into today’s technicolor 24/7 news cycle, flashed around the globe in seconds and driven by social media. Incredibly, in her 70th year as monarch, the Queen feels as relevant as ever before–and she is, undoubtedly, a style icon. The Queen: 70 Years of Majestic Style celebrates the fashion evolution of Elizabeth II in her unprecedented Platinum Jubilee year.
