The Diamond Jubilee Fashion Spectacular

6 Jun

Day 2 of The Queen’s celebrations kicked off with The Thames River Pageant, whilst some of music’s most iconic stars of the last 60-years joined the Royal family at a live concert outside Buckingham Palace on Monday evening. The weekend of celebrations finished on Tuesday with a Thanksgiving service at St Pauls Cathedral, before the Queen took part in a carriage procession and balcony appearance in front of thousands of excited spectators. Here is a look at all of the fashion from The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend…

Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen impressed at The Thames River Pageant in this white boucle coat with ruched ribbon fastening, designed by The Queen’s regular dresser Angela Kelly. The coat was also embellished with Swarovski crystals and silver and gold applique patterns that shimmered in the light. The choice of white and metallics was a perfect fit for the formal celebration of her diamond jubilee. The Queen teamed the coat with a matching white and metallic decorated hat, her usual pearl jewellery collection and white gloves, along with her dazzling The Jardin Star brooch. Whilst on the Royal Barge, The Queen wrapped a white pashmina over her coat due to the chilly weather conditions.

The Queen once again looked amazing during her appearance at The Diamond Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace on Monday evening. For the occasion she chose this gold long-sleeved cocktail dress covered with Swarvoski crystals, along with lace applique detailing, designed by Angela Kelly. The glamourous dress was accompanied by The Queen’s renowned pearl jewellery, black box bag and court shoes, along with olive gloves- a rarity as the monarch usually only wears white or black gloves.

The Queen left her best look to last, wowing on Tuesday in another dress by Angela Kelly for the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral and her carriage procession. The mint green dress was made from a fine silk tulle, embroidered with tiny mint flower embellishments and silver thread, this was teamed with a mint green chiffon drape adorned with Swarovski crystals and a matching hat. The Queen accessorised the dress with her three-string pearl necklace and matching earrings, along with an impressive diamond brooch, made from two of the stones from the the world’s largest diamond. Over the Diamond Jubilee weekend The Queen proved she is  still the star of the show 60-years on from her coronation, looking incredible in an array of custom-made outfits.

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton impressed at The Thames River peageant- her first outing of the Diamond Jubilee weekend, in this vibrant red Alexander McQueen dress, whilst Prince William wore his Flight Lieutenant No 1 uniform complete with a blue garter sash. Kate teamed her dress with a matching red maple-leaf hat by Sylvia Fletcher, which she wore during her tour of Canada last summer. Kate accessorised the dress with a silver maritime brooch, which was a gift from Prince William’s Royal Navy Submarine Service, along with nude LK Bennett heels, a red and gold clutch and gold drop earrings. The Duchess carried a scarf made of Strathearn tartan, which she later wore whilst on the royal barge. This outfit was a great choice, as the bold colour not only looked amazing with Kate’s brown glossy hair, it also allowed spectators to spot her easily whilst on the barge.

Kate Middleton swapped high-end designer for The Queen’s jubilee concert, choosing a dress from one  of her favourite high-street stores. Kate wore this pretty blue and purple silk dress from Whistles. The piece which was from last season, sold out in all stores after Kate was previously seen wearing it. She teamed the dress with a navy Alexander McQueen blazer, whilst keeping her famous glossy locks loose in casual waves.

Kate stunned on Tuesday in this classic dress again by Alexander McQueen. Kate looked elegant and sophisticated in this pearlescent nude lace and silk dress, which showed off her slender figure. The Duchess matched the dress with a nude satin box clutch, nude LK Bennett court shoes and a matching hat by Jane Taylor. Kate stuck to her signature classic look over the whole celebratory weekend, her mix of high-street with high-end once again worked well.

Pippa Middleton

Pippa Middlteon may have been the talk of the town at last year’s Royal Wedding, but she made sure not to outshine her sister opting for this somewhat safe look for The Queen’s Thames River Pageant. Pippa looked chic but slightly boring in a navy skirt suit with with cream trim by Irish designer Orla Kiely. She teamed the suit with navy court shoes and a nude clutch, whilst keeping her hair simple in loose waves.

Princess Beatrice & Princess Eugenie

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie impressed in the style stakes during the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral. Princess Beatrice opted for a striped blue and white periwinkle coat by Kinder Aggugini, which she teamed with a matching vintage-style fascinator by Steven Jones. She accessoried the look with tan heels and a matching tan clutch, whilst keeping her auburn looks flowing in neat waves. Princess Eugenie joined her sister in a regal-inspired plum satin dress, with a flower embellished fascinator also by Steven Jones. The princess teamed her dress with matching nude heels and a clutch. This jubilee weekend has seen the princesses wearing some of the best outfits when have seen from the pair, who are usually known for their more quirky fashion sense.

Zara Phillips

The Queen’s grand-daughter Zara Phillips opted for a retro midnight blue jacket and matching skirt by Herve Leger for her appearance at St Paul’s Cathedral. The tight-fitting skirt and jacket show off Zara’s athletic figure, whilst the colour keeps the look sophisticated. She teamed the outfit with navy court shoes, a gold box clutch bag and a flamboyant hat by Karen Henriksen, which adds excitement to this look.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole performed at the Jubilee Concert on Monday night alongside the event organiser Gary Barlow. Cheryl opted for this dramatic black gown by Polish designer Ewa Minge.

Kylie Minogue

Pop star Kylie Minogue was another performer at the Jubilee Concert, playing homage to London in this pearly queen inspired look.

Jessie J

The blue and black vintage-flapper inspired dress, was covered in gold embellishments, with an electric blue feather train and knee-high split.
