royal fashionIf we look at the different periods of fashion we see regency, romantic, Victorian, Edwardian, royal etc. Royal fashion refers to such type of styles including dress-up, jewelries, cosmetics etc that especially goes with king or Queen or other members of their family. There is no doubt that a lot of fans around the world follow the Queen's fashion and style. They are definitely world celebrity persons. Whatever the clothes or hats or jewelries they wear the rest of the world wishes to know or follow their styles.

Fabulous, luxuriousness, elegance, lavishness and whatever you say, all these are applicable only for the royal fashion. It can be mentioned here that the royal outfits are completely different from the general people and these are constantly changeable in terms of their designs. Royal people (King, Queen, monarch) always maintain a particular style just matching with their tradition and culture. Over the years fashion has changed among the members of royal family of Britain, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Jordan and other countries.

Royal persons keep their rich and designer wardrobe for different purposes like visiting outside countries, meeting diplomats, presenting before guests and so forth. 

If we turn our eyes to the British royal fashion, we see Queen Elizabeth II who actually runs with some amazing and glorious fashion. To celebrate Queen's 80th birthday, her evening dresses, bejeweled gowns and personal jewelry pieces were shown in the Queen's Clothes Exhibition in 2006. The exhibition on Queen's clothes from 1940s to 2006 was arranged at the Buckingham Palace State Rooms in London. At least 80 evening gowns in different colors were shown in that exhibition. Most of her outfits keep extraordinary designs. But the ‘jeweled embroidered green silk dress' would cross all minds who visit once the exhibition. Norman Hartnell designed it beautifully on the occasion of her official visit to Ethiopia in 1965.

If Queen Elizabeth II visits in Japan, she needs symbolic cherry blossom and if in Canada, acknowledgement of maple leaves. When she meets special guests, delicately designed of emblematic flora and fauna is seen in her gown. These are in a word stunning, glamorous, eye-catching and tasteful. Whoever the persons are, they are to really appreciate the Queen's such dresses.

Gown is one of the most common suits for royal people. Some of the gowns are adorned with gold, pearls and diamante that are worn by Elizabeth II. Queen's state and evening gowns are also designed with amazing art, embroidery as well as excellent decorations. These works are especially embroidered by Norman Hartnell. Her majesty's outfits always suit the seasons and occasions.

Highly efficient and world renowned designers like Sir Hardy Amies, Norman Hartnell, Ian Thomas worked under the designing of Queen's most expensive fashion items including majesty outfits, gowns etc.

Queen's wedding gown was another fashion outfit that attracted the people around the globe by its splendid beauty. That modern dress was also designed by Norman Hartnell. Some exquisite materials like pearls, crystals were used in the wedding gown. When Queen got married with Philip in 1947 there were some scarcities of pearls due to wartime (2nd world war) restriction. But Hartnell managed to collect more than twenty thousand of pearls from the USA. Having a good combination of syringe, pearl orange blossom, jasmine and white rose, the wedding dress was skillfully merged with unique decoration. 

The House of Molyneux delivered various dresses for Queen's Commonwealth visit during 1950s.

Moreover, Queen wears skirts. Once it was a bit long. But it became shorter in the 60s. During 1950s and 60s Queen was used to wear a mink coat (a coat made of mink fur). This one was designed by Calman Links.       

The hat is another fashion item for the royal clothing. Queen Elizabeth II is always seen to wear a hat especially when she appears before the people. It added an extra beauty to her style. The hats are designed with pleats as well as drapes. Its styles are also varied. Hats are found from the large brimmed Bretons to handy turbans. Simone Mirman and Aage Thaarup are the two most important names who would design Queen's hats at the decade of 60s and 70s.

The late Princess Margaret, younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II, used to wear classy jewelry items along with nice-looking party dresses. She was also fond of bearing a majesty pose in her clothes. However, she was greatly criticized by the British Fashion Houses for using Dior dresses that were made in Paris.  

Queen Maud, Queen of Norway from 1869 to1938 and a member of British royal family, was well known for her Laferriere evening gown.

Wearing precious jewelry items are also made different Queens from the general people. Jewelry pieces of diamonds, pearls, sapphires, rubies or emeralds are very popular as royal fashion.

Sometimes it would not be possible to know the royal fashion especially what are worn by Queens or kings. So it is a good idea to observe the exhibition organized in different occasions only for showing the Queen's clothing. Here you can find the royal fashions including luxurious clothes, wedding dress-up, occasional fashion, informal dresses, bonnets, gloves jewelries, gowns, parasols, coronation robes, and even their shoes. Besides, if you can visit different websites can find lots of nice and cute pictures of royal fashions worn by royal persons in different occasions.
