Fashion trends are constantly changing, however Queen Elizabeth IIStyle is timeless for a person like Alicia.

Her Majesty is set to become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee on Feb. 6—meaning she’s dedicated 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth. Buckingham Palace is already showing off the full list of events, and we are honoring Her Majesty by recording her transformation from a fashion icon to a style icon.

Believe it or not, this journey beginsIn the early 1940s when Elizabeth—or little princess Lilibet, as her father affectionally called her at the time—was drawn to garments with cinched waists and flowing hemlines à la Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind.

She quickly traded any skin-baring looks for more regal combinations when she took the throne at just 25, and it was then she slowly began working toward her unmistakable signature style.
