The Queen Went to Fashion Week

Wintour wore an Alexander McQueen dress and sat on her fake fur coat in the front row of the Quinn show, which featured models in all manner of slinky get-ups sporting motorcycle helmets and scarves that covered their faces.

During what has been a relatively quiet London Fashion Week, the Queen of England decided to make an unannounced visit to designer Richard Quinn's runway show.

Before the fashion crowd shipped off to Milan, it was joined by none other than Queen Elizabeth II for a final runway sendoff. At first it may seem like something of a vexing choice, since Elizabeth may be just about the last person you'd imagine wearing the young designer's offerings (indeed, she showed up in a much more traditional Angela Kelly suit). So were Wintour's signature sunglasses, which, per usual, she didn't take off indoors ... which people thought was rude in the presence of the Queen.

Known for his exaggerated and exuberant prints, Quinn graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2016 and has been racking up accolades from both the industry and also celebrity fans, including Lady Gaga.

The award will be presented annually to an emerging British fashion designer who shows talent and originality, whilst demonstrating value to the community and/or sustainable policies, according to the royal family.
