Yes those pink/peach/fushia colors bring up the pink in her cheeks. My real favorite is that shade of cornflower/periwinkle that really accentuates her eye color.

I found this old photo of Queen Elizabeth II looking fierce from one of my favorite sites ONTD.

Notice the cut of the coat. It's very similar to this season's style. Love, love her white knee high boots... Hello! Can we say amazing.

OMG, the pic must be from the early 70's. My mother wore a pair for their 25th wedding anniversary party. She loved them!

How odd to see the Queen wearing those white boots (although I think they're fetching on her). I wish she'd get away from the sensible shoes, but I understand now that I'm getting older.

Oh, that shot from the Eisteddfod is lovely. Charming to see HM taking part in such old rituals.

Am I imagining it or, is the Queen styling another "White Wardrobe" with her evening/gala wear? I loved the all white evening wear with the Kolkoshnik, but the white with the Burmese Ruby was stuning,

It seems to me that since the death of her Mother QEII is trying whole new looks and styles, eg Family wedding wear, Queen Mother/Camilla hats and fascinators etc. Anyone else out there notice a change in style?

Yes, I agree that the Queen has changed her look since the Queen Mother's death. (I wonder if, in some way, she felt constrained by her mother's taste in her clothes.) But I also think that the death of Bobo McDonald and the arrival of Angela Kelly also freed the Queen to make different choices. I read somewhere that the Queen and Bobo wore almost identical hairstyles after the 1960s. Given that Bobo was some 20 years older than the Queen, I think that made the Queen look more matronly that she might have otherwise.

Same for her clothes. Look at the very matronly pink outfit with the pink bells on the pink hat that she wore for her Silver Jubilee. She still had a good figure in the 1970s but they started dressing her in tents. Too bad.

I, too, have noticed that the Queen is dressing much more stylishly than she was, say, 20 or 30 years ago. I'm loving most of her daytime outfits nowadays.

This is an often repeated falsity - HM almost always wears her outfits multiple times but she is careful to space out the events so that most people don't notice. Sometimes the wearings span up to 7 years. For instance, I have tracked an outfit from May 2003 to March 2008 with, so far, 10 wearings! An example of this one can be seen here

Another example is one worn 10 times since November 2002, until as recently as 1st March 2008:

So you see, don't believe everything you hear - if you really take notice you'll soon see that the Queen is very shrewd about her clothes
