22 Times Queen Elizabeth’s Bold Outfits Made Her Look Brighter Than Everyone Around Her

Queen Elizabeth II has been in the public eye her entire life and wants to make sure her subjects see her — literally. That’s partly why she has long worn festive, bright colors for her public appearances. According to Robert Hardman, the Queen’s biographer, she once explained her color choice by saying, “I can never wear beige because nobody will know who I am.” When it comes to fashion, the Queen’s motto is: “You have to be seen to be believed,” and she definitely doesn’t go unnoticed whenever and wherever she appears.

In February of this year, Her Majesty marked her platinum jubilee, 70 years on the throne, which makes her the longest-reigning monarch in England. We at Bright Side believe it’s the perfect time to take a look back at how her style evolved over the years.
