Queen Elizabeth Makes A Surprise Appearance At London Fashion Week

On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth II made a surprise appearance at London Fashion Week.

The queen was seen at Richard Quinn’s fashion show, sitting next to Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief.

According to People, the queen wore a dress by Angela Kelly and completed the look with a pale blue tweed jacket, black gloves, black pumps and pearl jewelry.

Wintour was spotted in a floral dress, a gold necklace, and her signature black sunglasses.

And according to the royal family’s Twitter account, the queen made an appearance at Fashion Week to:

  • tour showrooms
  • meet with designers
  • and present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.

Richard Quinn was the first recipient to receive the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award, which may explain the queen’s presence at his show.

And according to the royal family’s Twitter account:

“The Award, initiated in recognition of the role the fashion industry plays in society & diplomacy, will be awarded annually to an emerging British fashion designer who shows talent and originality, whilst demonstrating value to the community and/or sustainable policies.”

Buckingham Palace also confirmed to HuffPost that this is the queen’s first time attending London Fashion Week.
