Tomorrow is her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to celebrate the momentous date-the Queen will set a new record of stay on the throne.
Longer British monarhini, which leads the Uk already 63 years and 7 months, only her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, who served their country 63 years, 216 days.
It would seem that for such a long period of time we had to inquire about Elizabeth II absolutely everything, but is it?
9 September turns 63 years and 7 months since the day Elizabeth II ascended the throne! For analysts this fact-proof of the stability of the British monarchy, and for us year in, year out, the opportunity to observe the favorite of British subjects and be inspired by her cheerfulness, firmness of spirit, sense of humor, and, of course, an excerpt from which she observes the Royal dress code.
The latter survived many attacks, but before criticizing Queen Elizabeth's wardrobe, it should be noted that its contents are governed by strict Protocol, according to which the Queen has no right to afford deep cuts, no shoulder, neither studs nor mini skirt, no jeans, no coat, no elegant black nor red lipstick, nor even the absence of socks-and even tens or hundreds of "no!" Among them, by the way, are and excesses in the accessories.
If other fashionable temptations Queen has defied, demonstrating a truly Royal shutter speed, it's about the accessories we have many issues to it. The fact of the matter is that her portrait photography burdened with details. Blame-excess of accessories: the portraits of Queen for attention are struggling simultaneously spotted print, three-tier pearls, earrings, brooch, bizarre hat, flower on the hat and glasses. If the frame gets even and bouquet that the Queen keeps in hand-write was gone!
Otherwise, it outputs-sample restraint and elegance: colored monochromatic dresses or suits of medium length, necessarily covering the knee, coats and cloaks, dresses floor length for ceremonial events, heel height of 2 inches (5 cm) sleeve length three quarters, as well as gloves, closed shoes with blunt Cape, pearls, diamonds and a transparent umbrella.
In General, the history of style Queen distinguish two periods: young style Queen-conservative and elegant, and an old style Queen, informally known as the "Rainbow", which received its name for the love of the Queen to the bright colors that filled her wardrobe in 2000 and that she wears so far.
Angela Kelly, a personal Dresser of Queen Elizabeth II from 1994 onwards, released a book about creating a wardrobe of one of the most famous and elegant women not only Europe but also of peace, tells us that the choice of the color Royal attire should be coordinated with the reason for which her Majesty will appear before the public. Have to take into account all circumstances-even what monarhinû will be photographed on the street where the main background is green trees. For example, for the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen chose Golden dress, because the entire concert took place on the stage, built around the Golden Memorial to Queen Victoria. And here is by boat on the Thames Elizabeth swam in white attire. This color was chosen to contrast with the Red trim of the ship.
There are other rules: If the Queen goes on visit to children, mainly in its suit are the details, because children pay attention to feathers, ribbons, frills and bright colors. However, if it is to a long car ride, Elizabeth's clothes must not appear folds, while the outfit should be as convenient and practical. The same rules apply for evening dresses: no heaps of fabrics and heavy beading decoration.
As for hats, then, when visiting a nursing home, the Queen wears a structured Hat bright colors to accessory see even people with visual impairments, but heading the Royal horse racing, selects a model with utâželennymi fields to the headdress is not carried out by the wind. In short, the basic principle of today's Royal dress code is strict conservatism.
A little more freedom could afford a "young" Queen. Although she was never a victim of fashion, her wedding dress, tailor, established in year 1947 the Royal Court by Norman Hartnellom influenced by the paintings of the artists of the Renaissance, was included in the list of the most beautiful wedding dresses of the 20th century and present samples of wedding fashion.
Prior to his coronation in 1953 year Elizabeth made a bet on a new bow, a bright palette and texture for flying balls, restrained Tweed suits for business trips and travels. Particularly tender feelings young Beth fed white Atlas and krepu, grey tvidu, fialkovomu silk and pink tulle. Her favorites were invariably silk and satin floral skirts. Generally, in the 50-IES of the style Elizabeth perfectly suited her status of the young Queen. Her wardrobe consisted of elegant suits, evening sets in the style of Grace Kelly, tight bodices and wide skirts, tiny hats and purses.
Later pull the waist gave way to straight cut - Dress-square and square coat sleeves, jackets and skirts were ukorotilis′. Hat Queen were sewed while Elsa Schiaparelli, and other renowned designers and had no fields, recalling minimalistic turbans.
And in the 60-ies and 70-ies gave itself felt love Queen colors: for official receptions she chose bright yellow, coral and green sets. It was during this decade, the monarch has a unique style and becomes the "grandmother of the nation", as it is now her name is British. Known for the Queen and their images "closer to the people", promoting anti consumer lifestyles: suits, Tweed skirts and vests, rubber boots and scarf.
That to fashion designers, working on Royal orders, in the 40-IES and 50-IES of the dresses for the Princess, and later Queen shil already mentioned Norman Hartnell. In the first years of her reign she began to work with the designer Hardy Èmisom, who will wear the British Royal family until his death in 2003 year. From the mid-50 's and throughout the 60 's to the Queen, Hardy Amies and sews with 70 's with her works Ian Thomas, formerly Assistant to Norman Hartnella. After his death, and until the late 80 's to Queen Elizabeth Sheila Maureen rose from the design houses of Ian Thomas.
Since the late 80 's to mid 90 's wardrobe Queen replenishes outfits from John Anderson, after his death the Court designer becomes his partner Karl Ludwig Reza. With 2000 's for Elizabeth II employs the youngest of courtiers designers of her Majesty-Stewart Parvin, a graduate of Edinburgh College of art. In 2002, his Assistant becomes Angela Kelly.
