1. Her luxurious dress at her coronation as Queen

Queen Elizabeth's fashion style throughout her life was so iconic, one of which was when she was officially crowned when she was 27 years old. The Queen herself wore a dress made by British designer Norman Hartnell.

The dress was made of white satin with embroidered emblems of England and the Commonwealth Nations. The gold color makes the dress look luxurious and exceptional.

2. Long jacket and printed scarf

With her baby, Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth was seen wearing a 3/4 coat in lemon. The fashion statement she did in 1958 was to wear a fur scarf with a leopard motif.

3. Plump dress with light color

In 1963, the Queen was seen wearing a peach-colored dress with plump accents in the hip area down.

Her hair was scrambled to expand meanwhile, the stacked pearl necklace giving it a luxurious impression. This necklace was often worn until her old age.

4. Coat flowery motif and headpiece match

During her visit to Malta in 1967, she looked very stylish with a long coat of floral motifs in pink and green. She is also seen wearing one of her favorite brooches, the Cullinan V Brooch, made by Garrard in 1911.
