Queen attends first London Fashion Week front row in surprise visit

"Anna Wintour looking ridiculous as usual - sunglasses indoors?!"

Ms Rush also spoke from the runway, saying of the Queen: "Throughout your reign you have embraced fashion, using its power of diplomacy to communicate understanding between cultures and nations".

Queen Elizabeth II went head-to-head against American Vogue chief editor Anna Wintour when the two sat side-by-side in the front row of London Fashion Week.

The Queen of England reacts to a runway look. The royal shocked trendsetters everywhere when she made her London Fashion Week debut on Monday.

The prize itself was concepted by Angela Kelly, the Personal Advisor to Her Majesty and the woman responsible for much her wardrobe, including the blue tweed suit she wore to the show, which was designed by Kelly herself, according to WWD. Earlier in the day, she toured the Designer Showrooms, where she met with a handful of designers including NEWGEN members Grace Wales Bonner, Liam Hodges, Marta Jakubowski, Michael Halpern, Richard Malone and Phoebe English.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth made a surprise appearance in the front row at a fashion catwalk on Tuesday where she watched a show by emerging designer Richard Quinn.

It seems Quinn fits the bill perfectly.

Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, perhaps the most influential designer in fashion at the moment, held the label's 2017 Resort show in Westminster Abbey and staged it with some hat tips to the Queen's style. Having interned for Christian Dior and Richard James, he's since built a reputation for his brand's embrace of mixing prints and figure-flattering silhouettes.

The 91-year-old presented the first ever Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design to Mr Quinn, who is an emerging talent celebrated for his screen printing.

British fashion designer Quinn is the first ever recipient of the award.
