  • The Queen shocks London Fashion Week with surprise appearance next to Anna Wintour

For the first time ever Her Majesty swapped the throne for the FROW to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design to designer, Richard Quinn.

Stylish as ever, she wore a duck egg blue tweed dress and jacket with aquamarine Swarovski crystals from her favourite designer, Angela Kelly, who sat on the other side of Ms Wintour and came up with the idea for the award.

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 Central Saint Martins MA Fashion graduate is known for his avant garde designs. She accessorized with black gloves. The award is presented to one British designer annually, who boasts incredible talent, in addition to services to the community and sustainable practices.

Wintour has been criticized online for not taking off her sunglasses as a sign of respect to the Queen.

"From the tweed of the Hebrides to Nottingham lace, and of course Carnaby Street, our fashion industry has been renowned for outstanding craftsmanship for many years, and continues to produce world-class textiles and cutting edge, practical designs", the 91-year-old monarch said.

The official Twitter account for the Royal Family issued a statement about the queen being at the fashion show.

She took in the colourful Richard Quinn catwalk show. He is an emerging talent who has been recognised for his exceptional prints.

The award itself was designed by Angela Kelly, inspired by the Queen Elizabeth rose, and has been hand-produced by Lucy Price at Bauhinia Studios in Birmingham's famous jewellery quarter.
