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.
The Queen has been interested in fashion since her younger days as Queen. As I said before; she and Princess Margaret went to fashion shows and they did use fashion to help carve out their roles.

I’m not sure she’s interested in the new fashion of the day, but I think she like seeing young designers doing well. I agree, she and Angela work very well together on her own wardrobe.

I actually think The Queen might have had some interest in some of those prints.

I just looked up why Anna always wears shades. It's her armor. She says she can be bored (or whatever) behind them and not get noticed.

In that case, she should have taken them off sitting next to HM. Who needs armor sitting next the Q Elizabeth? And who would even want to send that message sitting next to HM.

Miss Hilton has been reported as saying that
sunnies protect from flash light pain.
Essential when she is DJing.

Who won the award,you'd think he have dressed up for meeting Her Majesty the Queen especially at a fashion show.

My highlight was Dame Wintour sitting beside the queen in her superglued on sunglasses

Now that was good for a giggle or two. The amazing thing too about it is that both women look approximately the same age in that picture.

You know, The Queen actually look good with that hairdo. She has told her hairdresser that she want to change up her hairstyle, but she changes her mind at the last minute.

HM always seems to pick that rather old Jaguar when she wants to drive herself, rather than the many newer cars she has at her disposal. She much like it personally.

It is odd to see anyone driving without a seatbelt though, I know the Queen never wears one but it is a bit jarring.

I've always loved seeing HM doing things that she probably doesn't get a chance to do very often and its mostly while she's at Windsor that she gets a bit of her own life to herself with riding in Windsor Great Park, driving herself to church and from what I've come to believe, pop around for visits with friends and family after church.

For a woman that is fast approaching 92 years old, she's an inspiration to us all.

The Queen drive in the manner in which I prefer...simple driving. I think it’s best to not be an everyday driver.

I just realized - I don't know this...

I know where the Royal Apartments are and Where St. George's is. But where does the Queen get in the car for the drive?
