Fashion Icons: Ideas to Copy from Modern Royal Fashion – The Queen choice of outfit, and every modern royal in the public eye, is governed by an intricate set of ‘rules’ and numerous practical requirements that would defeat most women. Yet as the authors of this fascinating history reveal, ‘dressing for the job is a challenge that some royal individuals have developed to a high art’.
Historic Royal Palaces’ senior dress curator Deirdre Murphy and former curator Cassie Davies-Strodder have picked seven prominent royal women who understood the intricacies of royal dressing, and with the help of brilliant designers and talented stylists, developed a unique style.
Each elegant modern royal receives her own, lusciously-illustrated chapter: Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, The Queen, Princess Margaret, Princess Diana and the Duchess of Cambridge, a young royal whose style influence is now so powerful that she only has to be photographed briefly in an off-the-peg dress for it to sell out across the country in seconds.
