The Colours of the Queen

The Colours of the Queen

If you've ever lost sleep at night wondering just what colours strike the Queen's fancy, wonder no more.

After 60 years of style and class, Vogue went on a mission to follow the beloved monarch around for a year, chronicling every outfit that she wore. The resulting data should help answer any questions you may have had about the Queen's colour preferences.

It turns out blue is the clear-cut winner with the Queen. She sports the "royal" colour about a third of the time, which is three times higher than any other colour. At the bottom of the list are boring beige and checked patterns -- because really, no one wants to be a walking optical illusion. She's not one to shy away from floral patterns though, those flowery outfits surprisingly come in second.

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel suddenly compelled to wear more hats?

The Leo Burnett ad agency in London even took this inspiration and created Pantone Queen, 60 Years of Matching Colours based on the Queen's outfits, which is pretty fantastic.

And with this knowledge, I plan to finally get a good night's rest. Cheerio!

That's very interesting...but I think it proves that though the Queen is simply a figurehead, it just goes to say, we love monarchies and gossip! :O
Who knew the queen wore such a spectrum of colours! She's such a great example of a person dressing for her age and with class, I personally think she always looks lovely in yellow! I love the idea of a queen pantone colour book - hopefully this will become available soon for us pastel coloured lovers to use!

Thanks for sharing
I have been seeing this image everywhere. I find it oddly inspiring every time.

Es interesante como viste, pero lo que siempre me llama la atencion es el porque el uso del sobrero, yo le llamaria la reyna del sobrero "The Queen of Hats"!!
I think she looks good in yellow. And I like her hats. Cherrio darlings!
Lovely ! Should inspire those who think black is the "only" true fashion colour. Vive la Reine !

The Queen loves her color!
