Queen Elizabeth II and the shape of 20th-century power dressing

Sumary of Queen Elizabeth II and the shape of 20th-century power dressing:

  • The queen’s popular boxy handbags (she had more than 200) were from Launer London, which she awarded a royal warrant in 1968; her cotton shirts were from Grosvenor Shirts Ltd. on Jermyn Street.
  • I have to be seen to be believed, the queen famously said, and from the moment she became sovereign in 1952, at age 25, she clothed herself with that purpose in mind.
  • Indeed, her use of color inspired a book by Sali Hughes, Our Rainbow Queen, one of at least seven on the queen’s style.
  • Although Elizabeth lived through as many trends as she did prime ministers (15) and U.S. presidents (14), including the eras of mods, punk, Teddy Boys and Sloane Rangers, she never followed them.
