Hundreds of celebrities graced the front row at London Fashion Week over the past few days.


Kate Moss, George Ezra, and Liam Gallagher attended the Burberry show, Alexa Chung and Pixie Geldof popped by the House of Holland runway and Anna Wintour made a welcome appearance at the Richard Quinn show, however, the Vogue editor was outshone by one very special lady today.


The Queen stunned everyone by making a very rare appearance at London Fashion Week. The monarch sat next to Anna Wintour and British Fashion Council Chief Executive Caroline Rush.



Queen Elizabeth made the surprise visit for a very important reason. The 91-year-old was there to present the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design.



The monarch created the award because she wanted to give emerging British fashion talent well-deserved recognition.


The award recognises the work of those in the fashion industry who show “talent and originality, whilst demonstrating value to the community and/or sustainable policies."



Her Majesty looked thrilled to be attending the stylish occasion. As well as presenting the award, she had the honour of meeting the designers and received a tour of the showrooms at London Fashion Week.


She wore a blue Angela Kelly suit with crystal embellishments and matching hat as she enjoyed the Richard Quinn runway show.



The Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle may be known for being the most fashionable members of the Royal Family, but the Queen certainly gave them a run for their money.
