I simply LOVE that shade of purple on Her Majesty. The lighter outfit is all right.

Here's a nice piece form the Telegraph about a new exhibit on QEII's fashion.

Queen’s role as international trend-setter exhibited in new show of Hartnell and Amies couture - Telegraph

However, don't get too excited just yet, as it turns out the exhibit will not open until Nov. 16, though clearly the advance press campaign is in full swing. Fashion and Textile Museum

No brooch (good choice), snow queen INDEED and I love the bag this evening. I'm also a sucker for ropes of pearls. Well done, Your Majesty!

That is one gorgeous look for Her Majesty! I think she's wearing high heels too .

Seeing HM and the DoE dressed up so beautifully really makes me miss those bygone days where people did dress up formally on more occasions.

HM simple shone in that outfit. Every inch a Queen.

Her Majesty knows how to pull out all the stops!

I only wish the same would go for Angela Kelly... The pale gold evening dress with its bad fit looks so poorly made that it's a sorry sight.
Focusing exclusively on Kelly as her dressmaker has resulted in evening gowns not worthy of Queen Elizabeth, and this is an obvious example - a probably precious fabric is tailored without expertise here, resulting in a bad execution of the dropped waist, shifting sleeves and shabby inverted pleats in the skirt which are particularly hard to look at.
Kelly has pretty much ruined HM's evening wardrobe over the past decade.
Unfortunately, even the sash has been placed in a less than effective manner on this occasion, covering half of Queen Victoria's jubilee necklace without a brooch to secure it.

Unfortunately, too true!

I thought the outfit she wore at St Paul's during the Diamond Jubilee service was the most majestic of all her outfits (apart from her coronation outfit, of course! )

I love the daytime coat more than the evening dress, but the Vladimir Tiara... sigh!

I am bored, waiting for Downton to come on and was looking at snaps of the Queen. She so frequently recycles her suits, I was wondering if anyone knew if there were dry cleaning facilities in Buckingham Palace?

The days are long past the point where the odd servant would get out the old bottle of Carbon Tetrachloride to spot clean (what we call here in the US a Hazardous Material with an MSDS sheet telling workers to not touch - as it is a contact and respiratory poison).

I am sure Prince Charles has made sure that Green Dry Cleaning solvents are used - but I do wonder if that is done in house or through a special warrant? Has anyone ever heard of this while taking the tour?

I love both the outfits, especially the evening one.

I think the evening dress is one recycled from the Indian State Visit at Windsor Castle some years ago.

The dry cleaners at the Palace are the best. The only reason I know this was from reading something about the Princess of wales confirming it.
