The Evolution of 20th-Century Power Dressing and Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, passed away on Thursday.

As required by the constitutional monarchy of her country,

she never revealed her political views while she was in office.

Her creation of the model for a new style of female power dressed in the latter half of the 20th

century, together with her unwavering devotion to her nation, its customs, and the symbolism of a

crown, will always be remembered as an indelible part of her legacy.

The queen is renowned for having remarked, "I have to be seen to be believed," and from the time she

assumed the throne in 1952, at the age of 25, she dressed herself with that intention.

Being mostly limited to politeness and pantomime.

With the exception of one, Queen Elizabeth has met every US president since Truman.
