Having been in the spotlight since birth, the Queen certainly knows a thing or two about dressing for the public eye.
As a young princess, Elizabeth took to wearing the era-defining A-line-style floral tea dresses and pleated dresses, opting for practical tweed and skirt suiting for horse riding and other outdoor affairs.
In her late teens, she graduated to fitted dresses and skirt suits as she took on her duties as a senior royal.
In 1947, she married Prince Philip in a dress that was certainly fit for a future queen. Designed by her go-to couturier Sir Norman Hartnell, it featured a dramatic 13ft train and intricate embroidery representing the flora of the UK and Commonwealth countries.
When she succeeded her father to the throne in 1952, the Queen embraced elegant tulle and embroidered gowns for state banquets and receptions, whilst honing her day-to-day style by enlisting designer Hardy Amies (until 1990).
Today, Her Majesty turns to dressmakers Stewart Parvin and Angela Kelly for her instantly recognisable colourful skirt suits, which, according to daughter-in-law Sophie, Countess of Wessex, she wears to ensure she can be seen in large crowds.
As we count down to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, we take a look back at the royal style icon's most memorable looks.
