Queen Elizabeth II's best ever style moments over the years

Queen Elizabeth II is many things – a mother and grandmother, a lover of corgis, a symbol of Britain – but today, in honour of the Platinum Jubilee, we’re celebrating a lesser-discussed role: that of a style icon.

From floral tea dresses to highlighter-bright twinsets, the Queen has long been donning timeless pieces that continue to influence modern fashion, often in subtle ways you might not realise.

That trend for lilac you’re seeing everywhere in 2022? Take a gander at all the times the Queen wore that particular shade.

The blue gown she wore to meet the Kennedys – try to tell us a celeb wouldn’t be hailed best-dressed for wearing the exact same one on the red carpet today.
