Beautiful Queen Elizabeth II started her career over the Commonwealth at age 27 in Autumn 1953. Stepping out in a series of dazzling dresses, many of them by the legendary couturier Norman Hartnell, she cemented her rulership of the countries during her six month tour.
The Queen has made 170 official visits to Commonwealth countries since her first tour and she has since used her outfits to craft carefully an image of a world leader. Politics are important, but clothes are crucial, too. Resplendent in satin, shimmering with beadwork, adorned with priceless jewels, the young Queen used her wardrobe to send a message to the world about status, power and her unique place in history.
