I love it! This is the 1st award that is in her name so she is there to give it away. Apparently in the coming years it will be given every year by a member of the royal family so I assume Sophie, Kate and Meghan will rotate it.

Nice to see Her Majesty there.

People may have forgotten this; The Queen and Princess Margaret used to attend a lot of fashion shows back in the day. They also used fashion to help carve out their roles.

That’s her natural face. She always said that she don’t have her mother’s natural smiley face.

Remember it well. Don't you remember when Princess Margaret called one of the models on the runway to stop and come over to her so that she could feel the material? Shocked some, but that was Margaret. You either loved her or not but she didn't care. She would sit and tap her shoulder if she like something and her friends would circle the outfit number on a sheet for that article to be put aside for her inspection later. Don't remember the Queen at as many though.

Now this is fun!

The RF Twitter says the award was the brainchild of Angela Kelly (described as 'Personal Advisor to Her Majesty (The Queen's Wardrobe)' by the Palace), who designed the trophy and has been working on this for 2 years.

Am I right in saying this is Angela sitting on the right of Anna Wintour in these pictures?

The more I read on this front row viewing of Fashion Week by the Queen, the more I read between the lines and get a better understanding of just how close HM and Angela Kelly are. I'm tending to believe that the Queen was all in on this project mainly to support Angela. Fashion Week doesn't seem to be something that is tip top on the Queen's mind (unless its racing colors fashion).

Fashionwise, I don't think the Queen was really all that interested in the designs herself. She knows what she likes and so does Angela and Angela does a brilliant job of dressing HM. The idea though behind the award and the fact that it will become a permanent fixture of the event in the years to come and in its own way, a legacy to Angela Kelly.

It really did have to be a momentous surprise to see the Queen in the front row. Somehow, one doesn't automatically picture a 91 year old Queen and matriarch as being all up into the latest fashions.

After actually watching the video, I would love to know what HM was thinking as those outfits paraded before her. I tried to imagine HM wearing them and ended up with a fit of the giggles. Those outfits with the helmets though reminded me that HM won't even wear a riding helmet because it messes the hair. S'ok though. The Queen's fashion sense is timeless and unique to herself and she's doing just fine with it.
