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.

Great pics of The Queen and it looks like "Dressing The Queen" will offer some great insight into The Queen's wardrobe.

These pictures are amazing! Shown are trays of jewelry, a room for the Queen's "traveling" wardrobe - with rough bare pine shelving, those color matched umbrellas, etc. I can't wait to get this book from the library.

And Vogue offers up more photos from the book: http://www.vogue.co.uk/news/2012/11/...fits/gallery/1

I think The Queen is very blessed to have a wardrobe made and tailored to her liking. I would love to have my wardrobe and suits tailored to my liking. I think it would save me a lot of time trying to find something that's comfortable to wear.

Queen Elizabeth II visits the Poppy Factory ahead of Remembrance Day.

Love her smile. The purple outfit is nice too.

Since Angela Kelly's book on the Queen's wardrobe is coming out, does anyone know what kind of relationship Stewart Parvin and Angela Kelly have?

I have not read the Kelly book (coming to the US in 2013) but I am assuming Angela, as the Queen's Dresser works inside the palace. She certainly designs the lion's share of what QEII wears.
Stewart operates his own couture studio AND designs for the Queen (and did Zara's wedding gown, etc.)

I like both designers but honestly am always glad for the days when her Majesty is wearing Parvin - the look is a welcome change from the regular Kelly silhouette. It's a breath of fresh air.

Lately, I've wondered at the Parvin/Kelly relationship. Do they know one another and is it collegial?

This looked far more golden when I saw it on TV coverage - but I suppose that was due to the lighting. She wore the bow this morning, as well.

Very lovely. The fabric is beautiful and suits her very well. I also love the broach.
