As the Queen celebrates her sixty years on the throne, we take a look at the monarch's role as a fashion icon.
When you think of the Queen's style what first comes to mind? For many, it is bright colours, colour blocking, pearl necklaces, beautifully ornate brooches, white gloves, and co-ordinated hats and handbags.
Whether a royal visit, state engagement, or any other occasion, Her Majesty is always well turned out.
The editor of Tatler, Kate Reardon says of the Queen’s fashion:
Here is a look back at how Elizabeth II's style has evolved through the years.
The Queen really came into her own in terms of fashion in the 1940s, her wardrobe featured many fine evening dresses and man behind many of these creations was Norman Hartnell.
Hartnell's signature style of the 1940s and 1950s was full-skirted dresses in sumptuous silks and duchesse satins.
It was Hartnell who created her wedding and coronation dresses.
Hardy Amies also began designing clothes for the Queen in the 1950s. He was highly regarded for his tailoring and was responsible for much of her daywear.
The designer Hardy Amies was behind the bow-decorated dress that the Queen wore when she met with South African President Nelson Mandela in 1996.
The Queen has been cited as a fashion inspiration to many, and Italian designers Dolce and Gabbana even used the Royal as an inspiration for their A/W collection in 2008.
The duo channelled her Balmoral style for their catwalk collection which included midi length skirts, and plenty of tartan. Silk scarves were worn over the models hair and tied neatly under the chin.
In 2009, top British model, Agyness Deyn - who cites the Queen as her fashion icon - emulated the monarch for a front cover fashion shoot for Love Magazine.
In this interview with The Daily Telegraph, Deyn explains why the Queen is her fashion inspiration.
The dress for the service of Thanksgiving was designed by Angela Kelly
She's designed many of the queen's outfits in recent years, including the one she wore to the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Kelly also designed the gold lame dress adorned with Swarovski crystals which was worn by the Queen as she watched the Diamond Jubilee Concert held in her honour on Monday 4 June.
