The Royal Wardrobe-Queen Elizabeth’s Dress Display

Her Majesty1 Queen Elizabeth the second is one of Britain’s most famous and observed persons. Her wardrobe is a key element to her public image.

The Queen is an icon2, simply by virtue3 of the job she has in her life. She’s in a way beyond fashion, but inevitably4, wherever the queen goes, the first thing most people boast about is what she is wearing.

In commemoration of the Golden Jubilee5, the Museum of Costume in Bath currently displays fourteen dresses worn by the Queen on official occasions between 1950 and 1980.

This dress was made for a royal visit to Pakistan in 1961 and what the designer, who’s name was Norman Hartman in this case, has done, as the Queen has obviously worked with the designer, is to honor her hope because green and white are the colours of the Pakistan flag. This bubble gum pink dress really pulls the point that the Queen wears her dresses on more than one occasion, and in fact, we know that she wore this particular dress on at least seven occasions. You can see that it is very, very feminine, and sort of very light, almost girlish touch. And if you look at this design, it just drops away terribly simple, but for all of that very effective.
