Queen Elizabeth at the state banquet for the Indian President tonight.
Unfortunately her worst evening dress in quite some time; probably a priceless Indian fabric, but ruined by an untalented dressmaker. The overskirt and skirt are so badly made that it looks slightly ridiculous.

What happened? HM has been looking so terrific. This dressmaker must be utterly embarrassed at this.

I just adore the Queen's fashion. She just looks lovely. How can anyone not love this "spunky" granny! She is truely the gem in the British monarchy's crown. Long Live the Queen!

Spot on Princess G - and she is just getting better and better at the moment - the purple outfit at the remembrance day was a particular highlight.

I really never grow tired of HM in white with her white hair and all the sparkly diamonds. I just don't think anyone will ever be able to compare with this aspect of royalty as the world is such a different place now. I'm so glad we have QE to enjoy with all the bygone pomp and all. It is such a treat for us 'casual' Americans, at least IMO!

I love the "snow queen" - every year an impressive appearance. What could be more regal than this outfit - these incredible fur and jewels... The older she gets, the more HM reminds me on her grandmother Queen Mary.

Queen Elizabeth looks so regal! She just radiates it! Makes me proud of our Queen. You're right Dierne23, she does look more and more like Queen Mary.

Mad Hattery! » Blog Archive » Catterick Garrison: HM The Queen


She wore a very similiar outfit on Easter Sunday this year, at first I thought it was the same one, could be the same hat

By and large a successful trip fashion wise for the Queen. But some of the outfits have been a bit trying too hard. The White evening dress with the applique was bizarre. The paisley outfit with the fancy hat was just a bit too much. And then there's this! http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r...gareceptio.jpg Oh whjilst I like tha fact that at 83 she is willing to keep trying new things with clothes, these big patterns are just not quite right on her really...

I'd say 7/10 for the trip overall!

In my opinion, the Bermuda outfits were very nice; but I think that the Trinidad and Tobago outfits were ALL disastrous. I don't like any of the new outfits worn there. If I have a good database about clothes this trip, I think she had about 13 new outfits worn.

Ada - the Easter outfit was the same as the Catterick one - she just had the rather fussy collar removed. Successfully IMHO.

And Queen Elizabeth - NAIL ON THE HEAD! Bermuda - fab; T&T - bad. What happened? Far too many fussy patterns and 80's styles. I think her dressmakers know what they are doing with heavier fabrics, and her signature coat and dress style. As soon as it gets into lighter dresses and suits, they seem to flounder and rely on patterns that would overpower anybody.
