But, with all the hype surrounding Kate Middleton and every thing she wears, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that the queen was mixing prints and color-blocking way before the duchess was around.
In honor of her majesty’s 88th birthday, we invite you to check out just how stylish the queen was — and still continues, to be.
She understood the power of a great purse from a very young age:
She has the whole equestrian look down pat:
She’s never been afraid to play with pattern:
She loves a good scalloped edge:
She knows a red lip makes every look better:
She has the best bling:
She’s not above repeating a statement piece:
She even walks the dogs in style:
She was rocking floral crowns way before you were taking selfies in them at Coachella:
…And turbans way before you could get them at Urban Outfitters:
Happy birthday you royal fashionista!
