Britain's Queen makes surprise visit to London Fashion Week

Britain's Queen makes surprise visit to London Fashion Week

Queen Elizabeth II has always dressed with style and flair - but Tuesday marked her first visit to the showy catwalks of London Fashion Week.

The Queen sat on the coveted front row - or Frow - in between Vogue editor-in-chief Wintour and Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council (BFC).

Elizabeth carried a matching handbag - of course - and wore her mostly white hair swept back.

The Queen watched a show by young British designer Richard Quinn, whom she presented with the inaugural "Elizabeth II Fashion Award", which will be presented annually to a new talent in the sector.

The Award has been initiated in recognition of the role the fashion industry plays in society and diplomacy, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.




The queen didn't bother with the statement stiletto heels favored by numerous younger fashionistas, opting for sensible dark low-heeled court shoes for the awards presentation.

'I would like to thank the British Fashion Council for selecting the first victor - Richard Quinn'.

His provocative show included a model wearing what looked to be a decorated green motorcycle helmet with a dark visor along with black and white polka dot leggings and a gauzy top with different size dots.

The queen addressed the people at the event by saying that the fashion industry of Britishers is known for outstanding craftsmanship.

With the first appearance at London Fashion Week, she has created a tremendous bustle and the whole social media got swayed by the news of her presence. For many years, its grace has amazed people across the whole universe and also will continue to delight the public with cutting-edge, awesome textiles and practical designs. Other designers to have attended Central St Martins include Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton (who designed the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress for the house of McQueen), John Galliano, Stella McCartney, Zac Posen and Riccardo Tisci.
