  • Why no curves at London Fashion Week?

It is a sight many people never expected to see - the 91-year-old Queen sitting in the front row of a fashion show next to the editor of Vogue, Dame Anna Wintour.

All week the buzz has been not to miss Richard Quinn's Tuesday show.

On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth and Anna Wintour sat next to each other at Richard Quinn's London Fashion Week runway show - and the pictures are truly wonderful. It was Her Majesty's Personal Advisor, Angela Kelly, who came up with the idea of the Award.

It will be given annually to an emerging British fashion designer who shows exceptional talent and originality, whilst demonstrating value to the community and/or strong sustainable policies, the statement added.

She praised Quinn for "his outstanding craftsmanship for many years" and thanked him for his contribution to British fashion.

He declined to say whether Bannon should be held in contempt of Congress, a process that could lead to months of legal wrangling. Bannon responded to all the questions he faced and no areas were off-limits, this person said, according to CNN .

Queen Elizabeth II is living her best life! She acknowledged the British Fashion Council for selecting Quinn as the first victor of the award that will acknowledge new young talent. She then moved into the accessories showroom space where she met with jewelry designers as well as milliners.

Fashion shows, for all the madness that seems to go into producing them, are short affairs, so she also had time to squeeze in a peek at another up-and-comer, Harvy Santos, who had recreated the traveling crown worn by Queen Elizabeth II's great-great grandmother Queen Victoria, except with red leather studs.

It was really astonishing to the participants as Queen Elizabeth made a surprise appearance at designer Richard Quinn’s show on the last day of London Fashion Week.

Wintour has been busy with the royal family this week, meeting with the Duchess of Cambridge and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, at the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange Reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday.

The gala was attended by Wintour, model Naomi Campbell, designer Stella McCartney and other luminaries of the fashion scene.
