Queen Elizabeth II made her very first appearance at London Fashion Week. The Queen sat in the front row between her dressmaker, Angela Kelly, and editor-in-chief of Vogue, Dame Anna Wintour. The 91-year-old Queen wore a powder blue dress and jacket with black gloves, shoes, and handbag to the event, where she presented the first Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design to the show’s fashion designer, Richard Quinn. The British Fashion Council’s chief executive, Caroline Rush, introduced the Queen for her speech, noting: “Your Majesty, I know you do not wish to be known as a fashion icon, but for all of us in this room, who have this utmost respect for you … we know you undoubtably are.”
