Fashion exhibitions are common in a culturally concentrated metropolitan area like London, but this one is distinctly different: it puts Queen Elizabeth II in the spotlight.
The exhibit, Fashioning a Reign: 90 Years of Style from The Queen's Wardrobe, was unveiled at Thursday’s summer opening of Buckingham Palace. Staged to celebrate the queen’s 90th birthday, the show features 150 dresses and fashion accessories she’s worn, including childhood outfits and her wedding dress.
