I think that browns, creams and other colours of that pallet suit the queen extremely well, Although i must say that yellows especially in spring time also suit her and i believe they reflect her personality. Sadly we no-longer see the queen in ball-gowns. Does anyone else agree with me in that they suit her alot more then the dresses she wears for such occasions these days. For instance the dress she wore for the Malta state visit, thank heavens for the Jewels to draw attention away from it.

Yes, ballgowns suited her most IMO, but I'll concede that she is no longer at an age to be wearing them, and she realizes this, too. What she wears now (as formal dress) is age-appropriate and simple in color and style. And since she owns maybe some of the finest jewels in the world, simple is what works best to set them off the most.

The pic I LOVE is her coming out of the State Opening of Parliament wearing a cream dress and fur-lined robe... she looks like a million bucks and she knows it. She certainly looks like a queen should.

She is a REAL Queen!

Not even Queen Victoria was as regal as She is.

It must have been the example of Queen Mary.
